Minor League Player of the Day: Tough choice today…I think I’ll go with Bats starter, Wirfin Obispo, who threw 5 no-hit innings in a losing cause.

AAA

Syracuse 2 – Louisville 1 (7 innings)

No one had more than one hit, Felix Perez had a double. How sad is it when one double is the offensive highlight?

Nice start by Pedro Villarreal who threw 6 innings of 4 hits 1 run baseball, striking out 1.

Nick Christiani took the loss giving up 2 hits, a walk and the winning run in 1/3 of an inning.

Syracuse 1 – Louisville 0 (7 innings)

Think the first game was bad? In the second the Bats got 1 hit. Yep, one hit. Congrats to Nefi Soto. (That’s a total of 5 in two games and 9 in the last 3.)

Outstanding start for Wirfin Obispo, who threw 5 no hit inning, no runs, he did walk 4, but struck out 5.

Travis Webb took the loss, allowing a run in 2 innings.

AA

Jacksonville 2 – Pensacola 1

Ryan LaMarre went 3-4.

Daniel Corcino took the loss, going 5 innings, allowing 5 hits, a walk, and striking out 5, while giving up 2 runs. Chris Manno threw 2 hitless innings of relief, Drew Hayes threw 2 innings of one hit relief.

High A

Bakersfield 5 – Visalia 1

Big night for the Blaze running game. Billy Hamilton went 1-3 with 2 walks and stole 4 bases (67), Theo Bowe went 0-3, but stole 2 (16). Redleg Nation Spotlight Player, Tucker Barnhart, went 2-4. Travis Mattair went 2-2 with 2 walks. Dominic D’Anna homered.
