AAA: Pawtucket Red Sox 4, Rochester Red Wings 2
RP Sean Burnett gave up a walk-off home run to RF Brennan Boesch in the bottom of the 11th inning for this loss.
The Red Wings scored first with two runs in the 2nd inning. Both were driven in on an RBI single by C Carlos Paulino. The Red Sox got one back in the bottom of the 3rd inning and tied the score in the bottom of the 7th thanks to back-to-back doubles by Boesch and 3B Jantzen Witte. As mentioned, the Red Sox eventually won with the walk-off home run.
SP Andrew Albers started for the Red Wings and was strong. He gave up two earned runs on seven hits over 6.2 innings. RP J.T. Chargois also threw two scoreless innings in the game.
AA: Tennessee Smokies 13, Chattanooga Lookouts 9
The looks had 14 hits including five doubles, but still managed to lose this one thanks to a lot of poor pitching. All four pitchers who appeared in the game for the Lookouts gave up at least one run. SP Aaron Slegers was yanked after giving up six earned runs on the first 2 innings. RP Brandon Peterson replaced Slegers, but didn’t do much better, giving up four runs over 2 innings. RP Ryan Eades threw the next 3 innings, giving up two earned runs, and RP Tyler Jay pitched the final two innings and gave up one run.
C Mitch Garver was the offensive standout or the Lookouts, going 2-for-4 with two doubles, one walk, one RBI, and one run scored. 3B Leonardo Reginatto, CF Zach Granite, and 1B D.J. Hicks each hit a double as well.
High A: Ft. Myers Miracle 7, Palm Beach Cardinals 1
1B T.J. White and RF Joe Maloney both homered as the Miracle trounced the Cardinals 7-1. Both dongs were solo shots, but the Miracle found other creative ways to rack up the score too. 2B Alex Perez drew a bases loaded walk in the 6th inning, for instance, and 3B Chris Paul scored on a passed ball in the 8th.
SP Randy Rosario turned out a quality start for the Miracle, giving up only one run on four hits and three walks over 6.2 innings.
