Norfolk Tides 0, Louisville Bats 4
Elih Villanueva pitched a solid outing, giving up three earned runs in seven innings. Unfortunately the Tides offense gave him nothing, managing just four singles in the game.
Bowie Baysox 7, Harrisburg Senators 3
Chris Lee continues to look like a bargain. The 22-year-old lefty acquired from Houston hasn't demonstrated mindblowing peripherals since his promotion to Bowie, but the development staff must have seen something and he continues to get results. On this day, Lee allowed seven baserunners in six shutout innings and struck out five. Lee also induced nine groundouts. Making his second appearance for the Baysox, Jason Stoffel pitched two shutout innings. Every game Chance Sisco played was better than the last. Sisco had one hit Friday, two hits Saturday and was an astounding 4-4 with a walk yesterday. Quincy Latimore doubled, tripled and walked.
Frederick Keys 1, Carolina Mudcats 6
It would figure that once Luis Gonzalez finally rights the ship, his bullpen mates would lose the plot. Gonzalez struck out five and allowed seven baserunners in five innings. The offense didn't do much, but Josh Hart was 2-4 with a double.
Delmarva Shorebirds 4, Lakewood BlueClaws 2
Yermin Mercedes has been the engine that drives the Shorebirds offense. In 40 games since the All-Star Break, Mercedes has slashed .333/.363/.580. Today, Mercedes posted a modest 1-3, but drove in a pair of runs, making eight on the week. John Means was stable in his 22nd start of the year for the Shorebirds. Means went five innings and allowed an earned run. Jomar Reyes was 0-4.
Aberdeen Ironbirds 2, Connecticut Tigers 6
Oswill Lartiguez has shuffled around the system this season and in his career, but seemed to be the only Ironbird ready to play today. The 23-year-old Venezuelan doubled and tripled and was credited with an outfield assist. Lazaro Leyva got touched up a bit and D.J. Stewart pulled an oh-fer. Life in the New York Penn League.
