Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings 6, Syracuse Chiefs 5
SP Matt Tracy didn’t have the best start ever, giving up three runs over five innings, but it was enough for the win! Help also came from the bullpen here, though, with both RP Alan Busenitz and RP Ryan Pressly throwing scoreless innings. (Not so much RP Trevor Hildenberger, who gave up two runs in his in his two innings or work. Still, the Red Wings won!)
The scoring came mostly from LF J.B. Shuck, who knocked in half of the Red Wings’ six runs. Half! He went 2-for-4 overall with a double and a triple. Good work.
Another one of the Red Wings RBIs came from DH ByungHo Park, who is showing signs of life! Like, as in, he not only got a hit, but got a double and an RBI! He went 2-for-4 overall as well. Good times and great oldies!
Speaking of signs of life, 3B Matt Hague and DH John Ryan Murphy knocked in the other two runs for the Red Wings. Good job, team.
Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 5, Montgomery Biscuits 4
The Biscuits tried staging a comeback—scoring all four of their runs in the last three innings of the game—but they fell short of that goal!
Meanwhile, the Lookouts scored all five of their runs in the beginning of the game, most notable on a two-RBI triple by SS Nick Gordon in the top of the second. He went 2-for-5 overall, but is still hitting .311 in Double-A this year.
2B Ryan Walker was the other hero for the Lookouts, driving in two runs on a single and scoring a run himself. And the hot, hot, hot 3B T.J. White? went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI.
Recently demoted RP Randy Rosario, our savior for Randys, pitched one inning out of the pen and gave up a run on three hits and a walk. Way to not represent all the Randys out there, Randy.
High-A: Ft. Myers Miracle off
Lazy Sunday for the Miracle. Good for them.
[No Box Score]
Low-A: Burlington Bees 4, Cedar Rapids Kernels 1
Derp! The Kernels coughed this one up thanks to the bullpen. SP Max Cordy was scoreless through four innings, but then RP Evan Sanders came in and gave up three runs on three hits and two walks. He has a 27.00 ERA not in Low-A, by the way. RP Logan Lombana came in and gave up a solo home run as well.
At the plate, C Mitchell Kranson probably had the best day for the Kernels, going 2-for-4 with a double and the only run scored. He was knocked in thanks to an RBI double by RF Jaylin Davis. That was Davis’s only hit of the game, though.
3B Travis Blankenhorn also went 2-for-4, though he did not score or drive in any runs.
