Norfolk Tides 3, Syracuse Chiefs 5
Mike Wright's string of nighmarish starts continued as he was pulled after allowing four earned runs and eight base hits in 1.1 innings.
Steve the Cleve singled and walked, while Francisco Peguero homered. The less said about this game, the better.
Bowie Baysox 8, New Hampshire Fisher Cats 3
Tyler Wilson tossed his third consecutive quality start, but the three earned runs he allowed came off of solo home runs. After allowing three home runs in his first ten starts, Wilson has allowed six in his last three.
Frederick Keys 6, Myrtle Beach Pelicans 8
The Keys steadily built a pretty commanding in this game until it all unraveled in the 9th. While not great, Mark Blackmar put in a workmanlike five innings in which he allowed three earned runs, but struck out five, walked two and induced eight groundouts. Mychal Givens had trouble locking things down in the ninth, but was given no help by Joel Hutter and Zane Chavez who committed an error and a passed ball respectively. With the bases loaded, Givens was replaced by Ashur Tolliver, who promptly allowed a three run double.
Adrian Marin, if nothing else, has become a doubling machine. He has now doubled six times in his last ten games and is slashing .294/.314/.559 in that stretch. It's a sign of how poor his start to the season was that his overall OPS is still only .647. Creede Simpson doubled and has really shown himself to be quite the lefty masher this season (1.099 OPS). Lucas Herbst also tripled and Jason Esposito doubled twice.D

DSL O's Uno 1, DSL Twins 0
Los Bambinos have jumped out to a 10-1 record in the DSL's Boca Chica Baseball City...division? Anyways, Francisco Jimenez logged his third straight impressive start as he struck out six over 5.2 shutout innings. Sixteen year old Panamanian catcher Jean Carrillo caught a couple Twins napping and picked them off at first. DSL old timer Ricardo Andujar walked twice
DSL O's Dos 2, DSL Rockies 1
Lanky seventeen year old Ofelky Peralta made his second appearance and despite walking four over three innings, allowed only one earned run. Cristian Alvarado went six shutout innings to finish things off. He has allowed one earned run over nineteen innings.
Carlos Diaz had a single, a double and another pesky walk. Watch it, pal. Eighteen year old Panamanian Geremias Gil also walked twice.
