Triple-A: Syracuse Chiefs at Rochester Red Wings (postponed)

Postponed due to rain. Single-admission doubleheader scheduled to start at 1:35 pm Sunday.

[No Box Score]

Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 10, Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 1

Finally some offense for the Lookouts! Most of the scoring came late, as the game remained tied 0-0 going into the fifth inning. C Jose Gonzalez had the biggest Lookouts hit (and only extra-base hit) of the game—a three-run home run—while 3B Ryan Walker went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and LF Travis Harrison, though going 0-for-2, had two walks and two runs scored.

Starting the game for the Lookouts was top prospect SP Felix Jorge, who gave up only one earned run in 5.2 innings of work. He also struck-out four.

RP Luke Bard and RP Nick Burdi combined for 3.1 scoreless innings by the bullpen. Bard struck-out a bunch of guys (four in 2.1 innings).

High-A: Daytona Tortugas 8, Ft. Myers Miracle 4

LF Daniel Kihle went 2-for-4 with a solo-home run, two RBI, and two runs scored, but it was not the Miracle’s game to be had. That was mostly SP Keaton Steele’s fault, as he gave up seven runs in five innings, but only five of them were actually earned thanks to a 2B Alex Perez fielding error.

RP Sam Clay did pitch a perfect inning with two strikeouts, though.

Low-A: Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 6, Cedar Rapids Kernels 0

The Rattlers managed to pull-off this rain-shortened victory thanks in large part to a big five-run fourth inning that knocked SP Alex Schick from the game.

RP Domenick Carlini, who recently joined the Kernels from advanced spring training, pitched the remaining 2.2 innings in the game giving up only one hit and one walk.

The game ended after five and a half innings.
