Triple-A: Durham Bulls 6, Rochester Red Wings 5

A decent start from Aaron Slegers got wasted when the Red Wings bullpen imploded ... after two outs, no less! Buddy Boshers gave up an RBI double, Drew Rucinski a single and home run. Bye-bye, ballgame.

1B Matt Hague, DH Byung-Ho Park, and C Mitch Garver all had multi-hit games. Garver’s hitting .261 now. That could drop to .200 in the majors and he’d still be better than Chris Gimenez.

Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 2, Montgomery Biscuits 0

Your Lookouts pitching staff combined for eleven strikeouts, five by starter Fernando Romero. Luke Bard had four more, and 24-year old John Curtiss two in his solo inning. Flamethrowin’ down on the farm? You tell me.

Obviously not a lot of offense, with a sixth-inning, RBI single from RF Edgar Corcino being the only scoring play all night. But you know the good part about a well-pitched game; they are FAST. This one came in at 2:20. Beer sales were banned before I’d have been able to finish my fourth!

High-A: Fort Myers Miracle Soggy, Dunedin Blue Jays Drippy

Rain did fall, feeding Florida’s golf course grasses and enormous feral pythons.

Low-A: Clinton LumberKings 3, Cedar Rapids Kernels 2

Two on, nobody out, tie game, ninth inning. RH reliever Hector Lujan came in to stop the bleeding, and got a double play! Unfortunately it was after he’d let the previous batter fill the bases, so the go-ahead run scored. You can’t win ‘em all.

Strokin’ shortstop Jermaine Palacios only had one measly hit in this game, but 2B Brandon Lopez had three! None scored a run, although Palacios would score himself, so that’s fair.
