AAA: Lehigh Valley IronPigs 2, Rochester Red Wings 0
The Red Wings offense was asleep yesterday, mustering only four hits against the IronPigs all game. LF Adam Brett Walker had the only extra base hit of the hour, hitting a double in the 4th inning.
It wasn’t a bad start for Red Wings SP Jason Wheeler either. Wheeler gave up two earned runs on nine hits over six innings. He struckout six. RP Buddy Boshers and RP Marcus Walden combined to pitch the last two scoreless innings.
AA: Chattanooga Lookouts 6, Birmingham Barons 0
Lookouts SP Stephen Gonsalves surrendered only three hits over six shutout innings yesterday to help lead the Lookouts to victory.
The Lookouts did all of the scoring in the game, starting in the 2nd inning with an RBI double by C Stuart Turner. In the following inning 2B Ryan Walker was hit by a pitch, advanced to third on a wild pitch, and scored on a RF Daniel Palka single.
The Lookouts last four runs came off Barons RP Zack Burdi (brother of Lookouts RP Nick Burdi!). Zach struggled mightily, walking four batters and failing to get a single out.
High A: St. Lucie Mets 4, Ft. Myers Miracle 3
The Miracle made a late comeback, scoring three runs in the top of the 7th inning, but the rally ultimately fell short.
Down 4-0, LF Edgar Corcino led off the 7thn with a double and scored on another double by C A.J. Murray. RF Joe Maloney followed with a two run blast, bringing the score to 4-3 where it remained.
Miracle SP Keaton Steele took the loss, giving up all four runs over 6 innings pitched. RP Yorman Landa pitched two perfect innings to finish out the game.
Low A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 9, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 8
This was a crazy back-and-fourth contest, but the Kernels finally came out the victors thanks to walk-off wild pitch in the bottom of the 12th inning.
The Kernels were actually winning 7-5 going into the 9th inning when RP Kuo Hua Lo gave up a three-run home run to Rattler C Mitch Ghelfi. The Kernels were able to fight back in the bottom of the 9th with a two-out RBI single by DH Luis Arraez to tie the game and push it into extras. It was Arraez who would eventually score on the wild pitch to win the game.
Besides Arraez, 2B Sean Miller was the Kernels’ offensive stand-out of the game. Miller went 3-for-6 with an RBI double in the 3rd inning and a go-ahead, three-run home run in the 7th inning.
CF Jaylin Davis, just promoted from the Rookie league, went 0-for-4 with one walk and two strikeouts.
