Triple-A: Indianapolis Indians 2, Rochester Red Wings 1
Not a ton of offense today, as the Indians righty held the Red Wings to just 3 hits and 1 run in 6.1 innings. That run came in the 7th, when 1B Niko Goodrum’s double was followed by LF Tommy Field’s single. Field went 2-3 on the day.
The Rochester starter was LHP David Hurlbut, his line was: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1. Not too bad, but he still took the loss.
Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 9, Montgomery Biscuits 2
Quite a bit of offense in this one, as by the end of the third innings the Lookouts were already up 8-0. Everybody in the lineup got on base at least once. Standout performances include: 2B Ryan Walker (2-3, 3-run homer, BB), LF Travis Harrison (2-5, 2 2B), and 1B Dan Gamache (2-4, 2B, RBI).
Lookouts starter Felix Jorge was very good: 7 IP, 5 H, BB, K
High-A: Charlotte Stone Crabs 6, Fort Myers Miracle 1
Miracle starter RHP David Fischer had a shutout going until the 5th inning, when he gave up two solo homers to let the Crabs take a lead. They wouldn’t surrender that lead, but did add to it in the 6th-8th innings. RHP Williams Ramirez had a rough inning, allowing 2 runs and 3 walks.
The Miracle’s only run came in the first inning. DH Bradley Strong reached on an error and then, after Strong stole second base, 1B Chris Paul hit a ground-rule double to bring him home.
Low-A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 5, Kane County Cougars 2
The Kernels got the first and last runs of this game, which took 10 innings to decide. In the first, 1B Lewin Diaz singled and then DH Jaylin Davis hit an RBI double. Diaz had a 3-4 day at the plate.
The Cougars answered with 2 runs of their own in the bottom of the first off of lefty starter Domenick Carlini.
The Kernels tied it at 2 in the 5th inning on an RBI double by CF Aaron Whitefield.
The game stayed tied until the 10th inning. The Kernels scored three runs, there was a balk, there was an ejection (probably because of the balk), there was a HBP with the bases loaded. Good times!
