Dans Thank Host Families
This week, the Danville Dans, the organization and the players themselves, showed their appreciation for the families that open their homes and hearts to these young men. We've posted photos from that night on our Facebook page. Please take a look!
Gems Even the Series
Even though the Dans struck first by scoring 2 in the 1st inning, Quincy came back with three straight run-scoring doubles in the 4th inning and ultimately won the game 5-4 Thursday night at Danville Stadium.
The Dans and Gems each had 10 hits, with the Dans leaving and the Gems stranding 15.
Game 3 of the West Division Series will be played at 6:30 pm on Friday, August 8 at Danville Stadium. The winner will host Chillicothe on Sunday, August 10 in the first game of the Championship Series.
Hendricks Throws Pitching Gem to Beat Quincy
Ronnie Jebavy hit the second pitch of the game over the left field fence, and Mark Hendrick threw a pitching gem as the Danville Dans beat the Quincy Gems 2-0 in the first game of the Prospect League’s West Division playoff series Wednesday night.
Hendrick threw seven innings, giving up just two hits, along with three strike outs and three walks. On the season, the Austin Peay State University senior-to-be went 5-2 in 12 games, including seven starts. On the year, he stuck out 36 and walked 14 with a 2.41 ERA.
In addition to Jebavy, Matt Henderson led the Dans offensively, going 3-3 with a sac bunt. His double in the 6th put Gabe Acevedo on third base, where he scored on a Brandon Shirley sacrifice fly to give the Dans their second run of the game.
Kyle Royalty got the top of Quincy’s order out 1-2-3 in the eighth inning. And Cam Wysocki came in to pitch the ninth and record his sixth save of the season.
The Dans will host Game 2 of the West Division Series on Thursday, August 7. Game time is 6:30 pm at Danville Stadium. If necessary, Game 3 will also be played in Danville on Friday, August 8..
