Del Valle Double Powers Bees
The Burlington Bees welcomed the Fort Wayne TinCaps to Community Field yesterday, June 10, and were able to pick up the “W", 4-1.
Luis Alvarado took the hill for Burlington, and looked quite impressive. He turned in six solid innings, allowing one earned run on three hits and a walk, while striking out two. The win brought his record to a respectable 4-5, and his ERA down to 2.66. Tyler Smith may have impressed the most on the mound for the Bees however, as his hitless two innings in relief of Alvarado were highlighted by four strikeouts.
Offensively, two extra-base hits were enough for the Bees, as Justin Jones’ solo homer and Fransisco Del Valle’s two-RBI double provided three of the Bees’ four runs. The Bees and TinCaps will go at it again tonight from Community Field, with Hector Yan taking the mound for Burlington against Fort Wayne’s Omar Cruz. First pitch is set for 6:30 PM Central Time.
