AAA: Rochester Red Wings 2, Columbus Clippers 0
SP Jose Berrios absolutely dominated the Columbus clippers, pitching eight shutout innings on just 88 pitches. He only allowed three hits (all singles). Oh, and he struck out nine batters.
CF Eddie Rosario hit a home run and is now hitting .354 in triple-a. 1B Kennys Vargas walked twice.
AA: Chattanooga Lookouts 6, Jackson Generals 5
It was a tight game, by the Lookouts scored what would turn out to be the winning run in the bottom of the 8th inning on a
home run RF Daniel Palka go-ahead hit by pitch. It was DH Mitch Garver who had the get-plunked honors.
Garver was also one of three Lookouts with a home run on the night. Garver hit a two run shot in the bottom of the 2nd inning, while CF Zach Granite and 3B Leonardo Reginatto added on their own solo shots later.
SP David Hurlbut started the game for the Lookouts and went 6 innings with one earned run. RP Trevor Hildenberger pitched the final 1.1 innings and struck out three (while hitting one batter, because that was the theme of this game or something)
High A: Jupiter Hammerheads 6, Ft. Myers Miracle 3
This was actually a close game, with the Miracle tying things up 3-3 in the top of the 8th thanks to a two-out error by Hammerheads 3B Avery Romero. Unfortunately, Miracle RP Nick Anderson gave up three runs in the bottom of the inning and turned the game into a bit of a lopsided affair.
3B T.J. White was the best offensive player for the Miracle, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored.
Low A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 5, Beloit Snappers 1
The Kernels buried the Snappers with a five run second inning against all-star SP Evan Manarino, and the turtles never recovered. RF Brad Hartong was the leading offensive player, going 2-for-3 with a double, and RBI, and a run scored.
Rookie: Elizabethton Twins 4, Kingsport Mets 3
The babiest of Twins played their first game yesterday, and they won! 3B Ariel Montesino went 3-for 5 with one run scored. 2B Travis Blankenhorn and CF Jaylin Davis hit home runs. P Andrew Vasquez pitched 2.2 innings with two walks and four strikeouts.
All very exciting!
