AAA: Rochester Red Wings 4, Lehigh Valley IronPigs 2
Pat Dean had a solid outing, giving up two runs over 5.1 innings pitched, but the bullpen was even harder for the IronPigs, combining for 3.2 shut-out innings. Way to go RP Neil Ramirez, RP Ryan O'Rourke, RP D.J. Baxendale, and RP J.T. Chargois.
2B Tommy Field drove in three runs with his stick, and SS Wilfredo Tovar went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored. RF Daniel Palka and 1B Byung Ho Park both went 0-for-4.
AA: Tennessee Smokies 7, Chattanooga Lookouts 6
The Smokies scored in the top of the 11th inning and the Lookouts were unable to answer them, losing this long affair.
The Smokies nibbled away at the Lookouts the entire game, only scoring more than one run an inning once (with two in the 4th). SP Felix Jorge didn’t have a bad start, but he didn’t win. He lasted 5 inning and gave up three earned runs.
RF Edgar Corcino hit a three-run home run for the Lookouts, which was their biggest hit of the game. He also walked twice and scored a run.
High A: Clearwater Threshers 7, Ft. Myers Miracle 6
The Threshers scored a go-ahead run in the top of the 9th inning to slide past the miracle for this win.
The Miracle had a big second inning, scoring five of their six runs on the day then. Those runs came piranha style as 2B Alex Perez, SS Nick Gordon, LF Trey Vavra, and CF LaMonte Wade each hit RBI singles.
SP Sam Clay had somewhat of a shaky start, giving up four runs in 5 innings pitched, but he wasn’t the official loser. That would be RP Nick Anderson, who gave up that run in the 9th.
Low A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 4, Kane County Cougars 0
Kernels SP Eduardo Del Rosario was stellar yesterday, fanning 11 batters in his 6 shut-out innings of work. It was the longest outing of this young man’s career too.
DH Luis Arraez sparkled at the plate too, hitting a big solo dong in the 7th inning. He was 3-for-5 overall on the day. CF Casey Scoggins was the only other Kernel with more than one hit, going 2-for-5 with a triple (the first of his professional career).
Rookie: Elizabethton Twins , Bristol Pirates Postponed
Today the baby weatherman decided to not even play a half an inning like they did yesterday, and just postponed the game from the start.
