Savannah’s game against Greenville was suspended in the 5th inning, so they will continue that one today. Other than that, this Sunday is very silent and gray to quote Morrissey, so let’s check out the scores. Morrissey’s is a huge minor league baseball fan incidentally*.
Buffalo 7, Durham 6
Josh Satin was 1 for 3 with a run and Zach Lutz hit a solo homer to spur a four run 8th innings that put the Herd on top over the Bulls for good.
Binghamton 7, Richmond 0
Jeurys Familia and Jack Egbert combined on the four hit shutout for the B-Mets. Familia went five innings, giving up two hit and striking out five while walking none. Matt den Dekker, who had a two run homer on the day, Jonathan Malo and Juan Ligares all went 2 for 5.
St. Lucie 3, Charlotte 0
Zach Wheeler took the loss in his third start for the Lucies. His line was 5IP, 5 hits, 1 run, 3BB, 5K’s. The one flag on him coming over in the trade was the walk rate. It appears as if he still needs to get that under control. His ERA is down to an even 3.99 though. Wilmer Flores was 2 for 3 and Rylan Sandoval hit his third home run in the last four days with a solo shot.
Brooklyn 2, Mahoning Valley 1
Steve Winnick (who got the win) and Todd Weldon (who earned the save with a five strikeout performance in three innings) combined for five perfect innings of relief to help the Cyclones edge the Scrappers. Richard Lucas was 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run.
Kingsport 5 Princeton 3
Dustin Lawley hit a solo homer in the 8th to break a 3-3 tie and Dylan Brown doubled in an insurance run to give the K-Mets the win.
