Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings 4, Lehigh Valley IronPigs 2

C Mitch Garver hit a two-run home run in the first inning to give the Red Wings the early lead in this one. It was his seventh dong of the year, and his second in two days.

The Red Wings didn’t stop there, though, as they added two more runs in the bottom of the second inning. RF Niko Goodrum and DH John Ryan Murphy hit back-to-back doubles, followed by a single by 3B Bengie Gonzalez. Murphy then scored the second run when SS Engelb Vielma ground into a double play. (Speaking of Vielma, he made a GREAT catch too.)

In fact, overall, the Wings were pretty doubles happy in this game. In addition to Goodrum and Murphy, Garver and Gonzalez hit doubles too.

SP Yohan Pino started on the mound for the Red Wings, and gave up one earned run over 4.1 innings. Potential big-league call up RP Alex Wimmers pitched two innings of relief, giving up one run (scored by old friend LF Pedro Florimon to boot).

Double-A: Pensacola BlueWahoos at Chattanooga Lookouts (POSTPONED)

Rain! The game was rained out. Something to do with Cindy. A doubleheader will be scheduled for a later date.

High-A: Florida Fire Frogs 8, Ft. Myers Miracle 1

This was not ideal. Though CF Max Murphy led off the game on a single and later scored to give the Miracle an early 1-0 lead, it didn’t last.

A lot of the problem was SP Lachlan Wells. After pitching three scoreless innings, the wheels started to come off in the fourth. Wells allowed his first run of the game score on a wild pitch, and would go on to allow three more runs in the 5.2 inning outing. The good news is that he struck out eight batters and only walked one.

RP Williams Ramirez came in to end the sixth for Wells, but he didn’t too great. He got the final out of the inning, but not before allowing two runs. The outing brought Ramirez’s ERA all the way up to 2.81 ERA over 32 innings pitched this year in High-A.

Low-A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 4, Quad Cities River Bandits 0

SP Eduardo Del Rosario had a good outing! The Kernels starter gave up only two hits and a walk over six shutout innings yesterday, bringing his ERA down to 4.74 on the year. He also struck out seven batters.

RP Colton Davis and RP Hector Lujan combined to throw three perfect innings to finish out the game.

1B Lewin Diaz had the biggest hit of the game with a solo home run in the 8th inning. C Ben Rortvedt also went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored.

Rookie Ball: Danville Braves at Elizabethton Twins (POSTPONED)

Yesterday was supposed to be Opening Day for the baby Twins in the Appalachian Rookie League! Except it was rained out. Boo.

They’ll play two today instead.
