In terms of minor-league productivity, Cristopher Sánchez continued where he left off.
Cristopher Sánchez allowed just one run over 5 2/3 innings in his first start for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs since making his major-league debut, helping the team split a doubleheader against the Rochester Red Wings on Saturday.
In six innings of work, Sánchez struck out six batters, gave up five hits, and walked two players. Sánchez mostly kept the Rochester hitters off-balance by mixing fastballs, sliders, and swing-and-miss changeups
He struck out 58 batters on 88 pitches, easily his greatest pitch count of the season; his next best total was 76 pitches against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on June 1.
Sánchez got into trouble for the first time in the top of the sixth inning after cruising through five innings with little pressure.
After Mickey Moniak’s RBI single in the first inning and Sal Gozzo’s RBI single in the fifth, he entered the inning with a 2-0 lead. Jake Noll’s one-out double to right field came after a fast flyout.
The left-hander then got Brandon Snyder to fly out to right field, but Noll was driven home by Humberto Arteaga’s single to center.
The IronPigs needed to win the second game of the doubleheader after losing 9-0 the night before after pitcher David Parkinson had a no-hitter into the sixth inning. It improved Lehigh Valley’s 2021 season record to 18-17.
Sánchez’s triumph was his first in-game appearance since June 6, when he pitched for the first time in the majors.
In a 12-6 victory over the Washington Nationals, he pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings as a mop-up reliever. Two days later, he was sent back down.
Sánchez earned the promotion based on his performance for Lehigh Valley this season, where he posted a 3.74 ERA in 21 2/3 Triple-A innings. In the minors, his ERA is now 3.29.
