Minor League Player of the Day: Lance Janke (Lynchburg): 6 IP, 0 Runs, 3 Hits, 0 Walks, 2 Ks

AAA

Durham 5 – Louisville 1

Chris Burke went 2-4 with 2 singles. Zach Cozart had a double in 4 at-bats and added the lone Bats RBI.

Travis Wood allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 8 hits and 2 walks in 6.2 innings pitched.  He struck out 7 and fell to 4-6 on the season.  Enerio Del Rosario threw gas on the fire by allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk in 1 inning of relief.

AA

Mississippi 5 – Carolina 4

Sean Henry had a solo homerun (his 8th of the season) and a triple in 4 at-bats.  He scored twice and raised his average to .306 on the season. Eric Eymann had 2 doubles and a walk in 4 plate appearances.  He also scored a run and drove in a run.

Matt Fairel fell to 1-3 on the season with Carolina in the loss.  He allowed 5 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks in 5.1 innings pitched.  He struck out 5.

High A

Lynchburg 3 – Potomac 0

Carlos Mendez went 2-4 with a run scored while Neftali Soto went 1-4 with a double and 2 RBI.

Janke, our POTD, improved to 3-4 on the season with the win.  Bradley Boxberger made his first relief appearance of the season and pitched a scoreless inning, walking 1 and striking out 2.  I assume this was just a workout assignment with the High A All-Star break this week and nothing more as Boxberger is typically a starter.

A

Great Lakes 7 – Dayton 5

Trailing 7-0 going to the 9th, the Dragons attempted some late inning heroics charged by Shane Carlson’s homerun.  Carlson went 2-4 with a homerun, 3 RBI, and a run scored.  Didi Gregorius went 3-4 with 2 doubles and a run scored.

Blair Carson pitched a scoreless inning of relief to lower his ERA to 1.82 on the season in 34.2 innings pitched with the Dragons this season.
