Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings off
The Triple-a All Star Game was tonight, hence no game. If you care, the International League All-Stars lost 4 - 6 to the Pacific League All-Stars. Drew Ruscinski, of all people, represented our guys, and gave up one hit in the 2⁄3 inning he pitched.
Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 5 Pensacola Blue Wahoos 3
This was a long one folks. The lookouts couldn’t get it done in regulation, but DH Andy Wilkins doubled in the game-winner in the 12th, and 1B Johnathon Rodriguez added some unneeded insurance. The regulation runs were batted in by LF LaMonte Wade (2 RBI!) and SS Nick Gordon.
Lookouts SP Felix Jorge didn’t have his best outing, but still did his part as well. He allowed only two runs through six innings. RP Raul Fernandez took a blown save by allowing the third run to score, and RP Nick Anderson earned the win. Anyone know where that lad is from?
What the hell is a Blue Wahoo, anyway?
Ft. Myers Miracle 0, Palm Beach Cardinals 0 Rain Rain, Go Away!
The game was postponed due to rain. It’s now scheduled as a double-header for tomorrow. Less work for me, more work for whoever writes that farm report.

Low-A: West Michigan Whitecaps 2, Cedar Rapids Kernels 0
I had a college professor once go on a rant about “double-directional” colleges... essentially the more directions in the name, the more obscure you are. Although, it doesn’t get much more obscure than were I went to school. Anyway, I feel like its the same way for sports teams. Even a single direction is pretty sad there. Sadly, the Whitecaps still defeated our valiant Corn.
Kernels SP Dominick Carlini gave up both runs, on six hits across six innings. He also struck out five, and did not give up a single walk. His relief, RP Patrick McGuff also struck out five, for a total of ten K’s in the game by Cedar Rapids pitching.
Kernels batters saw this happening, and allegedly replied “Hold my beer!” They struck out 11 times and did not score a single run. DH Trey Cabbage had two hits, including a double, as the lone bright-spot.
Rookie League: Elizabethton Twins 9, Burlington Royals 3
LF Brent Rooker and DH Jose Miranda lead the charge with a dong apiece in this one. Rooker’s was a two-run shot to highlight a 5-run second inning, and the E-Twins never trailed in this game.
SP Moises Gomez gave up ten hits, but it didn’t matter. Cluster luck was on his side, and he only gave up two earned runs (the third was unearned.)
