Triple-A: Rochester Red Wings 12, Lehigh Valley IronPigs 3

Remember yesterday when I said the IronPigs were really good? Well I take that back.

The Red Wings scored FIVE unearned runs in this game, including four off IronPigs SP Cesar Ramos in the 5th inning due to an error by 3B Hector Gomez.

It was also a home run field day for the Red Wings. LF Mitch Garver scored the Red Wings’ first run with a solo dinger in the 4th, followed later by a three-run 1B Byung Ho Park BANG, and a two-run dinger by DH Matt Hague. Garver also had an RBI double in the game.

Red Wings SP Aaron Slegers gave up three earned runs over 6.2 innings, which was still goo enough for his league-leading eighth win of the season. RP John Curtiss pitched a scoreless 9th inning, striking out two. He still has a 0.00 ERA at Triple-A.

Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts 4, Mississippi Braves 2

SP Stephen Gonsalves for the win! Gonslaves went six innings yesterday, giving up only two earned runs on eight hits and striking out six. He did not walk anyone.

CF Levi Michael hit a three run home run, accounting for most of the runs here. The only other run was knocked in on an RBI double by RF Edgar Corcino.

High-A: Ft. Myers Miracle 10, St. Lucie Mets 7

Miracle SP Cody Stashak struggled, giving up four runs and lasting only 3 innings, but it ended up not mattering because RUNZ—specifically in the bottom of the 7th inning, when the Miracle scored six of them. It was basically just a hit parade, confounded by an error by Mets RF Wuilmer Becerra.

Standout 1B Zander Wiel went 2-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI in this game, but he also committed two errors. The only other extra base hit was a triple by C Kevin Garcia.

Oh, unless you count Mets extra base hits. LF Tim Tebow hit his first High-A double.

Low-A: Cedar Rapids Kernels 2, Clinton LumberKings 0

Here was a fun pitching duel where the Kernels came out on top. SP Anthony Marzi pitched 6.2 shutout innings for the Kernels yesterday, earning the win and edging out LumberKings SP Danny Garcia, who threw 5 scoreless innings. Marzi also strikeout eight batters.

After Garcia was pulled, the Kernels managed to get a run in the 6th and another in the 8th which put them over the top. Those runs came thanks to RBI singles by 1B Lewin Diaz and C Ben Rortvedt.

Rookie League: Elizabethton Twins 7, Danville Braves 1

Fun day for the baby Twins! Especially CF Mark Contreras, who went 3-for-5 with two doubles AND a triple.

DH Trey Cabbage also had a nice day, going only 1-for-4, but he walked twice.

SP Edwar Colina was impressive, giving up only one earned run on three hits over 6 innings. He also struck out seven.
