A late comeback by Frederick prevents the night from being a clean sweep of the affiliates.

Christopher McCain/Norfolk Tides

Louisville (Reds) 3, Norfolk 2

(LHP) Chris Jones was quality, giving up 3 ER over 6 innings which saw him K 7. The offense was less so, going 0-8 with RISP and stranding 6 runners. Henry Urrutia went 2-3 with a SF. 3-4-5 hitters Christian Walker, Dariel Alvarez, and Steve Clevenger each went 0-4.

Bowie 2, Binghamton (Mets) 9

As bad as the Norfolk offense was the Baysox were worse. 1-11 with RISP. 7 left on base. Just 4 hits vs. 8 Ks; but at least they were facing a legit pitching prospect in Robert Gsellman. Trey Mancini and Mike Yaz each had 1 of the 4 total hits. Yaz added his 7th SB of the season. The Mets ran wild on catcher David Freitas, swiping 5 bags in 6 chances. Ariel Miranda coughed up 4 earned in just 4.2 innings. He allowed 6 hits and issued 4 walks.

Frederick 9, Salem (Red Sox) 7

Here's where all the night's offense was. 14 hits for the Keys and 18 hits for Salem is impressive enough. Even more so, however, are the 3 errors committed by Frederick and the 7! errors committed by Salem. That's one way to put up 16 combined runs in a game featuring no home runs. Every batter for the Keys had a hit, with 5 of them, including Chance Sisco, having 2 hit nights. Josh Hart went 1-4 with 2 runs scored and his 19th swipe of the season. Starter Luis Gonzalez is quite bad at this baseball thing. He has an ERA approaching 7 as a 23 year old in High-A. Garrett Cortright's strong season continues. 2 scoreless innings for him in this one. He hasn't allowed an earned run in 21 appearances dating back to May 30th.

Hickory (Rangers) 6, Delmarva 4

(LHP) John Means was serviceable over 5 innings, allowing 6 hits, 1 walk, and 1 HBP for 2 ER. He's allowed just 5 ER over his last 5 starts. (SS) Guillermo Salas went 3-3 with a dinger, but otherwise the offense was quiet, just like their higher level brethren. Jomar Reyes had a single in 4 at bats. (2B) Ronarsy Ledesma hit a 2 run homer in the Shorebirds' 3 run 2nd inning.

Connecticut (Tigers) 3, Aberdeen 2

19 year old (RHP) Jean Cosme (17th round pick in 2014) had his best start as a pro, striking out 7 and walking none over 6 innings while yielding 3 runs (2 earned). D.J. Stewart went 0-3, but did draw a walk and scored a run. Steve Laurino drove him in with a single, and also walked twice. Top-of-order speedsters Cedric Mullins and Glynn Davis each went 0-4.
