AAA

Scranton/WB 2 – Louisville 1

“That’s all we got, one *$#$^& hit.” 

Harry Doyle would have been disgusted watching the Bats offense in this loss.   Corky Miller’s 8th inning homerun wound up being the only hit the Bats’ offense could muster.   The homerun came with 2 outs in the 8th inning and was Miller’s 2nd of the season.

Ben Jukich pitched 5 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits and 4 walks to pick up his first loss of the season.  Jesus Delgado pitched 2 scoreless innings in relief to lower his ERA t0 2.00 in 9 Triple-A innings.  He pitched 2 scoreless innings earlier in the season with Carolina.

AA

Jacksonville 12 – Carolina 6

Kris Negron, Jose Castro, and Jake Kahaulelio each managed 2 hits in the loss.  Negron was 2-5 with a walk and 3 runs scored.  Castro was 2-4 with 2 singles, a run scored, and 2 rbis.  Kahaulelio was 2-4 with a double, walk, and a run scored.  Luis Terrero was just 1-2 at the plate, but walked 3 times and drove in 2 rbis.

Daryl Thompson had his start shortened by rain.  Thompson went 3 hitless innings, striking out 3.  The bullpen pitched the final 6 innings and was brutal!

High A

Lynchburg 4 – Kinston 2

Cody Pucket tripled and homered in 4 at-bats to charge the Hillcats to the win.  Pucket’s homerun was his 2nd of the season.  He also scored 2 runs and drove in 3.  Kyle Day went 3-4 with a double and an rbi.

Bradley Boxberger improved to 2-1 on the season with his 5 inning, 1 run on 2 hits and 2 walk performance.  Boxberger struck out 7 and lowered his ERA to 1.89 on the year.  Jordan Hotchkiss added 2 more scoreless innings to his season which helped him lower his ERA to 0.79 in 11.1 innings of relief.

Dayton 5 – Lake County 4

    Last night’s wins by Lynchburg and Dayton broke a combined 17 game minor league losing streak (Louisville 3, Carolina 8, Lynchburg 2, Dayton 4)…

    It’s hard to believe how badly Louisville is playing. I thought they’d be a machine…

    Got this from yesterday’s game note for Lynchburg:

    CATCHING ON: On Sunday UTIL Neftali Soto played his third game this season and in his professional career catching…In those three games he has one error, no passed balls and is 0-for-2 in throwing out potential base thieves…Soto also showed signs of life with the bat, going 4-for-14 (.286) with two doubles, two RBI, a run scored and two multi-hit performances…He came into the series with just one extra-base hit and two multi-hit games…

    Bill, where is the shortstop we drafted last year playing? His name escapes me right now, but he the fast kid out of Mississippi (or AL). Raw talent, but I think he has a chance to be good.

    Billy Hamilton… it just hit me. What level is he on?

    Billy Hamilton…he’s in extended I assume, which means he’ll either be in the Arizona Rookie League (I think that’s the name of it) or he’ll be in Billings. Doesn’t surprise me that he didn’t make an A team out of ST, he’s very young, very raw, and is so skinny when it rains, he barely gets wet. 😛 Hopefully, he’ll put on a few pounds and develop and be ready for A ball next year.
