Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings 8, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 1

Okay, so SP Nik Turley pitched six innings for the Red Wings yesterday and struck out FIFTEEN BATTERS. That’s, um, a lot. He also allowed no runs on just four hits and two walks—ALSO GOOD.

Meanwhile, the offense was able to light things up. C Mitch Garver had the biggest hit with a three-run home run in the 6th inning. CF Zack Granite went 3-for-5 with a double, and RF J.B. Shuck walked three times. Eat your heart out, Joe Mauer!

The bullpen was passable. RP Drew Rucinski pitched two scoreless innings, while RP Michael Tonkin pitched one inning, but gave up a run.

Double-A: Jackson Generals 4, Chattanooga Lookouts 2

The Jackson Generals scored two in the top of the 14th inning to win this heart breaker with the Lookouts. RP Nick Anderson did the honors with that, though a passed ball by C Jose Gonzalez helped.

SP Matt Tracy, who started the game for the Lookouts, gave up the only two runs before that, and they both came on a two-run gome run by Genersl 1B Kevin Cron. Otherwise Tracey was fine, lasting six innings and striking out five.

SS Nick Gordon, of course, was the offensive star of the marathon game for the Lookouts, going 4-for-6 with a walk and two RBI.

High-A: Ft. Myers Miracle at Palm Beach Cardinals

Both games of the doubleheader CANCELLED. As in, I don’t know if they’ll even make these up. Darn rain!

[No Box Scores]

Low-A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 7, Clinton LumberKings 2

Yay offense! SS Jermaine Palacios went 3-for-5 with a home run and a triple as the Kernels routed the LumberKings yesterday. RF Jaylin Davis was also impressive, going 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBI, and overall the Kernels managed four doubles, hit by 1B Lewin Diaz, DH Travis Blankenhorn, LF Hank Morrison, and 3B Caleb Hamilton.

Top prospect SP Tyler Wells started for the Kernels and was spectacular and real, pitching six scoreless innings and giving up only two hits and zero walks. He struck out seven.
