Minor League Player of the Day – Tom Windle (HiA) - 5 IP, 1 run, 6 hits, 0 walks, 6 K's. Windle didn't get the start on Sunday, but he made the most of his 2014 debut and struck out more than a batter per inning while allowing just 1 run.
AAA – Zach Lee gave up just 2 hits in his 2014 debut as the Isotopes defeated Tacoma (Mariners) 9 to 3. Lee lasted 5 innings and walked just 1, although he still managed to allow a couple of runs. Steve Edlefsen followed with two shutout innings of relief, then Daniel Moskos and Josh Judy finished off the victory. Quite a few players continued offensively for Albuquerque, including Carlos Triunfel who went 2 for 4 with a couple of doubles to drive in a pair. Jamie Romak and Brendan Harris both went 2 for 3 with a double, two walks, and a RBI, while Joc Pederson had 3 singles in 5 at bats.
AA – A late homer by Daniel Mayora gave the Lookouts a 5 - 3 win over the Generals (Mariners) on Sunday. Down by 1 heading into the 8th, Jeremy Hazelbaker tied the game with a triple prior to Mayora's two run bomb, which turned out to be the game winner. There wasn't much offense before that for Chattanooga outside of a O'Koyea Dickson solo homer and a Scott Schebler triple. On the mound Andres Santiago started tossed 5 frames, allowing just 2 earned runs despite permitting 7 hits and a walk. The bullpen was excellent as three relievers combined for 4 shutout innings, including two by Mike Thomas. Hector Nelo then threw the 8th and got the win while Pedro Baez picked up his first save with a hitless 9th.
HiA – The Quakes scored in the first, but then were shutout for the rest of the game as Rancho fell to the Giants 3 to 1. With the 5 hits the offense was very quiet, and Jeremy Rathjen's double was the only one that went for extra bases. The big news in this game was Chad Billingsley getting the start and then subsequently getting pulled early, which was covered by Craig earlier. Rob Rogers relived Billingsley and threw 1.2 innings, but the majority of the game was pitched by Tom Windle as he threw 5 innings and allowed just 1 run one 6 hits while punching out 6.
LoA – The Loons continued their strong start to their season as Great Lakes doubled up the TinCaps (Padres) 10 to 5. The offense load was spread among several players on the Loons, with Webster Rivas leading the way with two singles and a double. Paul Hoenecke drove in 3, while Dillon Moyer went 2 for 4 with a double, a triple, and 2 RBI's. Starting pitcher Luis Chirinos didn't have a particularly strong outing as he allowed 5 hits, 4 walks, and 4 runs, but he still managed to pick up the win as he threw the necessary 5 innings. James Baune threw the next 3 innings and gave up just one run.
Coming up – The Loons have the day off, but the other three teams are in action including Garrett Gould and the Lookouts. Henry Sosa will take the mound for the Isotopes and Fabio Martinez will throw for the Quakes.
