Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings at Buffalo Bisons

Too much rain.

[No Box Score]

Double-A: Pensacola Blue Wahoos at Chattanooga Lookouts

Rain. Too much of it.

[No Box Score]

High-A: Daytona Tortugas 7, Ft. Myers Miracle 0

Wish there had been too much rain...

Despite loading the bases with one out in the first inning, the Miracle ended up getting shutout yesterday by the Tortugas 7-0. SP Keaton Steele didn’t have his best outing, giving up five of the seven runs against the Miracle over six innings of work, including a two-run home run to RF Narciso Crook. The other two runs in the game were given up by RP Williams Ramirez.

At least CF Zack Granite had an awesome day offensively, going 3-for-4 with a triple.

Low-A: Lake County Captains 4, Cedar Rapids Kernels 3

The Kernels were actually leading this game 3-2 going into the ninth inning, when RP Tom Hackimer blew the save by giving up a game-tying RBI double to SS Luke Wakamatsu. Wakamatsu also drove in the go-ahead and eventual game-winning run with an RBI single off RP Logan Lombana in the top of the eleventh inning.

Too bad too, because SP Tyler Wells had a good start for the Kernels, giving up only two runs over five innings. He also struck out an impressive seven batters.

Also spoiled? Another hot day at the plate by 1B Lewin Diaz. Diaz went 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI—though he did make a fielding error. LF Christian Cavaness also had a good day, going 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI.

SS Jermaine Palacios, who has been really hot, went 0-for-5.
