AAA: Rochester Red Wings 6, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 2
The Red Wings hit heavy and hard against the RailRiders, scoring two runs in the 2nd inning and four runs in the 3rd, all unanswered, and all enough for the win over the evil Yankees’ team.
The Red Wings had help in the form of recently demoted SP Tyler Duffey, who only gave up two runs on two hits over 7 innings pitched. He walked three batters, but struck out five. Overall, a pretty fang good showing.
The Red Wings got nine hits in the game, all of them singles, though. 3B James Beresford was the absolute star of the game, going 4-for-4 with three RBI. What a stud.
AA: Chattanooga Lookouts 13, Mississippi Braves 0
The Lookouts exploded for five runs in the bottom of the 1st inning, and went on to absolutely drum the baby Braves 13-0. SS Niko Goodrum had the biggest single hit of the night with a three-run home run in the bottom of the 7th inning for the biggest run in this game. Goodrum also had a double on the night, meaning he had two of the Lookouts’ three extra base hits. 3B T.J. White had the other, with a double of his own. White was also the one at the box batting in the top of the 1st when the Baves’ melting completely melted down. Just check out the play-by-play. It was a good time.
SP Randy LeBlanc had an excellent start for the Lookouts in his AA debut. LeBlanc pitched 7 shutout innings with two walks and five strikeouts. RP Randy Rosario pitched 2 perfect innings of his own.
High A: Palm Beach Cardinals 5, Ft. Myers Miracle 3
The Cardinals came back from behind in this one, scoring three runs in the bottom of the 6th inning off Miracle RP Cam Booser and RP Confesor Lara to eventually win the game.
Miracle SS Nick Gordon, however, was FANTASTIC, going 5-for-5 with a triple and two runs scored. The five hits by Gordon alone accounted for half the hits hit by the Miracle all night. What a stud.
Low A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 6, Clinton LumberKings 1
The Kernels won their eighth straight game and clinched a playoff spot with this one. Woo!
SP Eduardo Del Rosario? He was great. He only gave up one earned run and struck out seven over his 5.2 innings of work. 2B Luis Arraez? Also great, driving in the first run of the game in the 1st inning.
LF Jaylin Davis continues to show off his power, hitting a solo shot in the 4th inning. It was already his 8th home run in his short low-A career.
Rookie: Greeneville Astros 2, Elizbethton Twins 1
This one was a stinker for the baby Twins. They only got two hits (singles by DH Ariel Montesino and CF Luis Martinez). SP Clark Beekeronly pitched an impressive 6.1 innings, but gave up two runs. that was enough for the loss here.
