Minor League Player of the Day – Chris Anderson (A) - 6 IP, 0 R, 2 hits, 4 BB, 7 K's. Chris Anderson pitched 6 innings and did a nice job in his longest outing of the young season. Honorable mention: Isotope catcher Griff Erickson had a great game going 4 for 4 with 3 doubles and a home run.
AAA – The Isotopes took a 9 - 1 lead over El Paso (Padres) and they eventually won the game 10 to 6. Red Patterson had a solid start going 7 innings, giving up 2 runs, 6 hits and 4 strikeouts. Griff Erickson was 4 for 4 with 3 doubles and his first home run. Joc Pederson went 3 for 5, Nick Buss was 2 for 4, and Clint Robinson had 2 hits.
AA – Chattanooga was shut out 6 - 0 by Suns (Marlins). Starter Garrett Gould pitched 5 innings gave up 6 hits, 5 runs, 1 walk and 7 strike outs. The Lookouts had 5 hits, no one had more than one and no hitter in the lineup is batting higher than .237.
HiA – The Quakes led 4-0 after 6 innings but the Rawhide (Diamondbacks) was able to mount a rally and won the game 7 - 4. Chris Anderson put 6 solid innings of work and left the game with the lead but Jharel Cotton's first game of the year was memorable for the wrong reason as he gave 4 runs in one inning of work. Matt Shelton had held teams scoreless for 9.1 innings but he gave up 3 runs in the 8th to provide the margin of victory. Corey Seager hit his first home run of the season. Adam Law went 1 for 3 with 2 RBI.
LoA – The Loons scored 2 in the top of the first but then gave up 5 to fall behind by 3. But a 5-run 4th inning and a solid bullpen effort notched win number 10 with a 7 - 6 victory over the Timber Rattlers (Brewers). Luis Chirinos started and got the win but it was the bullpen (Michael Johnson, Victor Araujo and Jacob Rhame) that pitched the last 4 innings and gave up just 1 run. Malcolm Holland stole 2 bases giving him 14 for the year (with no caught stealing), Jacob Scavuzzo was 3 for 4 with a double and Joey Curletta had 3 hits.
Coming up – Julio Urias will be making his first road start of the season for the Quakes, Greg Harris will be on the mound for the Loons, and Carlos Frias will try to continue his good start to the season for the Lookouts. Stephen Fife will pitch for the Isotopes
