What a disaster, all five teams in the organization took a loss last night. Let’s try to find a silver lining.
El Paso 4, Las Vegas 3
Giancarlo Alvarado let up 3 runs over 5 innings. Zack Thornton followed and allowed an unearned run despite striking out 2 and not allowing a hit. Josh Satin was 3 for 5 with a triple. Cesar Puello was 2 for 4 with a double. Andrew Brown homered, while Danny Muno and Kirk Nieuwenhuis both doubled.
New Britain 4, Binghamton 0
Angel Cuan gave up 4 runs over 6 innings to take the loss, although Ryan Fraser threw 2 shutout innings in relief. The B-Mets managed just 5 singles and struck out 14 times.
Brevard County 3, St. Lucie 1
Matt Koch suffered his first loss of the season, giving up 3 runs (1 earned) on 9 hits over 5.2 innings. The Lucies had just 5 total hits, including doubles by Cole Frenzel and Maikis De La Cruz. Brandon Nimmo did not play, and he’s expected to miss a couple more games due to conjunctivitis.
Rome 7, Savannah 6
Miller Diaz struck out 9 in 4.2 innings, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits. Tyler Vanderheiden gave up 3 runs in 2 innings of work, getting the blown save and the loss. Gavin Cecchini, Jeff McNeil, L.J.
