Norfolk Tides 4, Charlotte Knights 3
UVA alum Tyler Wilson made his AAA debut and held the Knights to one earned run over six innings. Sure, he allowed 12 baserunners, but..results!
Julio Borbon had three singles and a steal while Quinting Berry walked twice and drove in three runs. The Steves were 4-6 with two walks.
Bowie Baysox 3, Altoona Curve 6
A night after notching his 20th save of the season, Oliver Drake picked up his first loss. This appearance was the first in which he had allowed an earned run since May 20 and only the fourth time he's allowed an earned run all season...so there's that. Jake Pettit made the start after a cold cup of coffee at Norfolk. He allowed three earned and struck out six in eight innings.
Dariel Alvarex doubled and hit an Earl Weaver Special. Michael Ohlman and Kyeong Kang also doubled while Christian Walker was hitless. Kang has been on a tear of late, having slashed .368/.415/.711 in his last ten games. On the season, Kanh has slugged .500 against right handed pitching.
Frederick Keys vs. Salem Red Sox (PPD)
No Bundy for you!
Delmarva Shorebirds 6, Kannapolis Intimidators 5
The Shorebirds held off a late rally to salvage a win in their series against the Intimidators. Connor Bierfeldt was 3-4 with a double and a walk while Greg Lorenzo was 2-3 with a walk and two runs batted in. Austin Wynns also walked twice (6 walks on the day for the Shorebirds!) Chance Sisco singled, struck out and was charged with his 13th passed ball of the season.
Luis Gonzalez is perhaps becoming less mysterious to his South Atlantic League opposition. After not allowing more than two runs in his first seven games he has allowed three and four in his last two. He eked out a win nonetheless and is now 3-0.
Lucas Herbst picked up his fifth outfield assist for the Shorebirds (8th overall).
Aberdeen Ironbirds vs. Staten Island Yankees (PPD)
GCL O's 1, GCL Red Sox 0
Jonatan Isenia and company held the Red Sox to three hits, though the O's were held to three hits as well, but still scored a run. Isenia's scoreless outing was his second in three starts. The O's scored their sole run on a wild pitch in the 11th. It was, apparently, that kind of game.
DSL O's Dos 1, DSL Rockies 0
Carlos Diaz is one of the DSL leaders in walks. He added to his total.
The trio of Ofelky Peralta, Brailyn Duran and Alvin Herrera was pretty dominant. They held the Rockies to three hits and a walk, while striking out nine and inducing 16 groundouts.
DSL O's Uno 13, DSL Padres 6
21 year old Ricardo Andujar continues to drive the offense for the Los Primeros. The former Red Sox apprentice is slashing .356/.465/.471 and is also among the league leaders in walks (21 against 14 strikeouts). Andujar had two hits and a run on the day. Another 21 year old, Miguel Batista, turned in his best performance of the young season striking out seven in four scoreless innings.
