AAA: Rochester Red Wings 8, Louisville Bats 6

SP Kyle Gibson, on rehab assignment, was the winning pitcher for the Red Wings, going 6 innings with seven hits, three walks, one earned run, and two strikeouts.

2B Jorge Polanco stayed hot, going 2-for-4 with a home run in the 5th inning. LF Adam Brett Walker also hit a dinger, his 11th of the year. CF Eddie Rosario, who has been pretty hot since being sent down, went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a double.

Other fun news from this game includes manager Mike Quade and DH Buck Britton being ejected in the top of the second inning. Something about a foul tip in the dirt, but what exactly happens in the minor leagues sometimes just stays in the minor leagues.

AA: Jacksonville Suns 3, Chatanooga Lookouts 1

SP D.J. Baxendale had a good outing for the Lookouts, surrendering only one earned run on three hits in 5 innings pitched. RP Corey Williams pitched two innings and kinda sucked, giving up two earned runs that sealed the game for the opposing Suns.

RF Daniel Palka did not hit a home run. He went 0-for-2 with two walks.

High A: Daytona Tortugas 4, Ft. Myers Miracle 0

The Miracle hitters got one hit all game. So come on down, DH Tanner Witt, and receive your prize!

Low A: Peoria Chiefs 9, Cedar Rapids Kernels 4

It was a rough game for Kernels' SP Eduardo Del Rosario, who only lasted 4 innings while surrendering five earned runs on six hits and one walk.

The bullpen wasn't of much help either. RP Anthony McIver relieved Rosario, but gave up three earned runs of his own. RP Michael Cederoth relieved McIver, and proceeded to give up another run too. Finally, RP Michael Theofanopoulos came in the game and actually pitched without letting the other team score.

On the batting end of things, no one did anything particularly noteworthy.
