AAA: Toldeo Mud Hens 2, Rochester Red Wings 0
It was a pitching duel that did not disappoint last night, just unfortunately, Red Wings SP Jose Berrios came out on bottom. Berrios surrendered only one earned run over 6 innings while striking out seven, but that performance wasn’t enough when coupled with SS Wilfredo Tovar booting a ball and a stellar outing by Mud Hens SP Daniel Norris.
On the offensive side, CF Eddie Rosario went 3-for-4 on the night and raised his AAA batting average to .343. 2B Jorge Polanco and C John Ryan Murphy both had doubles, but again, no one was actually able to score, which is kind of important if you want to win baseball games.
AA: Chatanooga Lookouts 8, Montgomery Biscuits 5
SP David Hurlbut did just that, hurling his butt off over six shut-out innings as the Lookouts burnt the Biscuits in Montgomery. RF Daniel Palka did not hit a home run, but he did go 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored.
Hot-hitting CF Zach Granite and DH Mitch Garver also hit doubles in the Lookouts win.
