Minor League Player of the Day – Daniel Mayora (AA) - 4 for 4, 1 2B, 1 Grand Slam, 6 RBI's. The 28 year old Mayora had by far his best game of the year as he single-handedly led the Lookouts to a win on Tuesday.
AAA – The Isotopes doubled up the River Cats (A's) 8 to 4 on Tuesday behind a solid start from Red Patterson. Patterson allowed just 2 runs over 6 innings, striking out 3 and walking a pair. Yimi Garcia tossed a scoreless frame in relief and while Sam Demel got into some trouble in the 9th, Josh Judy was able to stop the threat and get the save. On offense Jamie Romak had a perfect day at the plate as he went 3 for 3 with a homer and 2 RBI's. Alex Guerrero also went deep for his 4th long ball of the year, while Walter Ibarra connected on his first homer.
AA – Chattanooga used a couple of big innings to down the Blue Wahoos (Reds) 7 to 3. Daniel Moyora did almost all of the offensive damage in this one as he was a perfect 4 for 4 with a double, a grand slam, and 6 RBI's. The only other hitter of note was actually starting pitcher Tyson Brummett who went 2 for 3. On the mound Brummett was very good as well as he did not allow an earned run over 7 frames to lower his ERA to a league leading 0.49. He allowed 5 hits, didn't walk a batter, and struck out 5.
HiA – Not much to see here as the Quakes got crushed by the Mavericks (Mariners) 11 to 0. Starter Lindsey Caughel got roughed up for 5 runs over the first 5 innings of the game, but that was nothing compared to reliever Jack McGeary who got pounded for 5 more runs while recording just one out. The offense managed just 3 singles in this game, with Corey Seager going 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout.
LoA – The Loons offense also couldn't get anything going as they lost a 1-0 pitchers duel to the Dragons (Reds). Despite the loss starter Jonathan Martinez threw very well as he gave up just 1 run over 6 innings of work and struck out 5. Michael Johnson and Jacob Rhame were perfect over the last 3 frames. At the plate Brandon Trinkwon's double was the club's only extra base hit, while Joey Curletta led the offense by going 2 for 4.
Coming up – A couple of early games as Zachary Bird and the Loons along with Tom Windle and the Quakes both play before noon. Matt Magill throws for the Isotopes while the Lookouts starter hasn't been announced.
