There have been a lot of good nights on the farm this season, but last night wasn’t one of them, with all four teams in action taking a loss. Let’s see what happened:
Richmond 7, Binghamton 6
Rainy Lara went 5 innings, allowing 4 runs on 9 hits. Hansel Robles and Dario Alvarez combined for 3 shutout innings, but Randy Fontanez allowed 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th without recording an out to get the blown save and the loss. Travis Taijeron was 3 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Brian Burgamy and Dustin Lawley had 2 hits each. Brandon Nimmo was 1 for 5.
Palm Beach 11, St. Lucie 5 (12 innings)
Kevin McGowan pitched the first 6 innings, striking out 6 and allowing 3 runs. But Julian Hilario blew the lead, and ultimately T.J. Chism and Robert Coles combined to give up 6 runs in the top of the 12th with both committing errors. Maikis De La Cruz and Jairo Perez had 3 hits each. L.J. Mazzilli and Jared King were both 2 for 6 with a double. Gavin Cecchini was 1 for 5 with 2 strikeouts.
Rome 4, Savannah 3
Logan Taylor let up 2 runs over 5 innings, while John Mincone followed for 3 innings, giving up 2 more runs and taking the loss. Dominic Smith was 0 for 2 with 2 walks, as the Gnats had just 3 hits the entire game.
Tri-City 3, Brooklyn 2
Marcos Molina struck out 10 over 7 innings, but took the loss after giving up 3 runs on 5 hits, including 2 homers. Amed Rosario was 3 for 4 with 2 doubles. Michael Conforto homered.
