Triple-A: Buffalo 4, IronPigs 1
Joe Savery made his first appearance since getting sent down, he pitched the 8th inning and gave up an unearned run (DOM BROWN ERROR), as well as one hit while striking out two. Mike Schwimer also had a some relief time, an inning and a third, perfect with two Ks. Derrick Mitchell and Dom Brown both struggled (1-4 and 0-4, respectively), while Cody Overbeck had an RBI sac fly.
Double-A: Reading 19 (yes, 19), Richmond 6
wow, if only the Philadelphia Phillies could produce like this. Leandro Castro had six RBIs on a 3-5 night that featured two doubles. Cesar Hernandez went 5-6 and scored every time he got on. Darin Ruf had his first homer of the year and a double on a 5-5 night, Tyson Gillies went 2-6 with two runs scored and a RBI, Valle went 3-5 with three RBIs, a double, three RBIs and a walk (shock!). Every one of the starting eight position players had at least one RBI, including the hitless Troy Hanzawa (only one of starters to not get a hit). Oh and Trevor May got his third win on a five inning, one run performance. He had seven strikeouts and allowed just four hits and two walks (at the dish he went 2-3 himself). JC Ramirez was tagged for five runs in two innings of relief.
Hi-A: Tampa 2, Clearwater 1
Brody Colvin finally pitched well! Six scoreless with just two hits allowed and six punchouts. Cody Asche went 1-4 (I highlight him every night because he skipped a level this season, so he’s kind of a big deal), Peter Lavin improved to a .340 average with a 2-5 night (same situation as Asche). D’Arby Myers improved to .360 on the year with a 2-4 night, but he’s been talked about since 2006 so people are sort of tired on him. Lisalverto Bonilla blew the save in the ninth to end the game.
Single-A: Greensboro 4, Lakewood 3
Mike Nesseth struggled in another start, giving up three runs (two earned) on two hits and five walks in just two innings. Brian Pointer hit a triple, his second of the year, and drove in a pair of RBIs. Maikel Franco went 0-4, Aaron Altherr went 1-3 but was caught stealing.
