The player of the game goes to Solomon Bates. Solomon shut down a very good hot hitting team by limiting them to 3 hits and 2 runs and had 4 strikeouts. Valencia did not score until the 6 th inning in which there was a leadoff triple that center fielder Marcus Wilson could not come up with as he went into a dive trying to make the catch. A home run followed and Solomon then sat down the next 4 batters ending the 6th and 7th innings, It was a big league performance that revealed Mr. Bates is" for real and a force on the hill to be dealt with"!
