Minor League games picking back up. Let’s do it to it.
Buffalo 3, Toledo 2
Josh Satin singled in Zach Lutz in the bottom of the ninth to give the Herd the win. Lutz was actually dead to rights trying to score from second on a single to left, but his slid jarred the ball loose from the catcher. Zach also had previously chipped in a solo home run, his eighth of the year. Busy night.
Binghamton 17, New Britain 5
The B-Mets got
a late field goal to cover the spread an offensive barrage, yet oddly scored more runs then they had hits. Juan Ligares went 3 for 6 with a double and two triples and four RBI, Matt den Dekker was 3 for 5 with a homer and two RBI, and Reese Haven was 1 for 4 with three RBI. Mat Harvey got the win, going 5IP, 3R, 5H, 2BB, 6K. Solid if unspectacular. However, he has been getting progressively better since his rocky start, and now has 54 K’s against only 13 walks in 44.2 innings. Brad Holt got roughed up in a third of an innings, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks.
Palm Beach 8, St Lucie 4
Kyle Allen gave up seven runs in 2.2 innings, and that was pretty much that for this one. Corey Mazzoni went a scoreless innings, striking out two while giving up a ruin and a hit. Wilmer Flores went 2 for 4, and Jefry Marte was 1 for 4 with an RBI.
Savannah 3, Asheville 2 (13 innings)
Aderlin Rodriguez hit a solo homer in the bottom of the 13th to give the Sand Gnats the win. Angel Cuan had a strong start, going six innings giving up one run on 4 hits, walking none and striking out 2. Hamilton Bennett blew the save in the ninth, but settled down to combine with Brandon Sage, who earned the victory, to hold the Tourists scoreless in the extra frames.
Kingsport 7, Johnson City 4
The awesomely name Yucarybert De La Cruz went 2 for 3 with a solo homer, and Julio Concepcion knocked in two ruins of his own. Jacob Lugo got the win, striking out six in 5.1 innings, and Brian Valenzuela notched the save, going 3.2 perfect innings.
