AAA: Rochester Red Wings 6, Norfolk Tides 0
The Red Wings pummeled 13 hits in this 6-0 shut out, with DH Kennys Vargas hitting the biggest—a three-run home run in the 1st inning. Boy, Kennys—we miss you.
LF Adam Brett Walker, RF Daniel Palka, and 3B Leonardo Reginatto each got an RBI in the game as well, but none like our man Kennys.
Despite the loss, it was a good start for SP Jason Wheeler. Wheeler only gave up two freakin’ hits and one walk over his 8 innings, striking out eight in the process.
AA: Jacksonville Suns 3, Chattanooga Lookouts 2
The Suns won this one on a walk-off walk by Lookouts RP Zack Jones, which is always fun.
SP Aaron Slegers started the game for the Lookouts and did well. He pitched 6.1 innings and gave up two earned runs.
DH Travis Harrison was a bright spot for the Lookouts offensively, going 2-for-3 with a walk. RF Ryan Walker actually had the only RBI for the Lookouts on the night. Thank you, errors!
High A: Ft. Myers Miracle, Palm Beach Cardinals
Miracle SP Randy LeBlanc had a brilliant start, pitching 7 shut-out innings with only three hits and one walk. He had six strikeouts.
2B Alex Perez got the only RBI for the Twins in the game. CF Tanner English was the only player with multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with a walk.
Low A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 2, Quad Cities River Bandits 1
The Kernels scored in the bottom of the 1st inning, and despite the River Bandits tying it up inn the top of the 2nd inning, the Kernels rallied to win in the bottom of the 7th.
It was, of course, DH Luis Arraez who had the one of the only RBIs for the Kernels. 3B Nelson Molina had the other. 1B Zander Wiel had the only extra-base hit for the Kernels as well with a double.
Rookie: Elizabethton Twins 4, Bristol Pirates 2
DH Lewin Diaz got the scoring off to a hot start with a solo home run in the 2nd inning. He went 2-for-4 overall yesterday, hitting two of the three hits the baby Twins even had.
But despite getting only three hits, the baby Twins still won. Hallelujah.
