Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings off

Off day after a rain-out.

Double-A: Tennessee Smokies 7, Chattanooga Lookouts 4 (Game 1)

After Sunday’s doubleheader was rained out, the Lookouts have two days of doubleheaders in a row. The team started off Monday’s round of bouts by losing Smokies in a seven inning game.

SP Kohl Stewart was all over the place. After walking the first two batters to start the game, Stewart proceeded to throw a wild pitch, give up an RBI double, throw another wild pitch, give up an RBI single, throw yet ANOTHER wild pitch, a passed ball, a walk... and yeah. Amazingly, the Smokies only managed to get three runs, but that was just the first inning.

Things didn’t get a whole lot better for the Lookouts, though. At least SS Nick Gordon had an alright game at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. He was the only lookout batter with more than one hit.

Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 5, Tennessee Smokies 0 (Game 2)

The Lookouts were able to salvage the day by winning the second leg of their doubleheader with an explosive, five-run fourth inning. DH Dan Gamache got things going with a bases-loaded single to score the Lookouts’ first two runs. After CF Tanner English walked again to reload the bases, 3B Ryan Walker cleared them with a three-run single of his own.

The pitching was also strong. SP Matt Tracy three six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits and three walks. He now has a 1.53 ERA on the season. RP Mason Melotakis closed out the doubleheader-shortened game by pitching a perfect seventh and final inning.

High-A: Ft. Myers Miracle off

No game yesterday.

Low-A: Burlington Bees 8, Cedar Rapids Kernels 0

The Kernels bats could only muster four hits yesterday and SP Tyler Beardsley certainly didn’t help things on the pitching side as the Bees stomped the Kernels 8-0. They didn’t waste any time getting started either, scoring two runs in the top of the first inning. Overall they would get seven off Beardsley (only six earned) in his six innings of work. At least Beardsley didn’t walk anyone in the game, though.

As mentioned, the Kernels only had four hits in the whole game, and unsurprisingly no individual player had more than one. The hot SS Jermaine Palacios—who’s hitting.397—and RF Jaylin Davis both hit triples, though.
