Minor League Player of the Day – Ryan Adams (AA) - 3 for 4, 3 2B's, 1 RBI, 1 Run. While we haven't heard much about Adams this season, he captures the player of the day award with a trio of doubles in the Lookouts loss. The 2nd baseman hasn't shown much power this season, but he does have a solid .307 average.
AAA – Off day
AA – The Lookouts couldn't overcome an early deficit as Chattanooga fell to Mobile (Dbacks) 9 to 4 on getaway day. Starter Raydel Sanchez fell to 0 - 4 on the season after allowing 6 runs in just 3 innings of work, 3 of them coming on a pair of homers. Garrett Gould followed with some stellar work out of the pen as he tossed 4 shutout frames, but then Craig Stem got touched up for 3 more runs while recording the final 6 outs. On offense Ryan Adams had a big game at the plate as he connected on a trio of doubles and drove in a run. Tuesday's hero Noel Cuevas hit a 2-run homer as an encore performance while Chris O'Brien's pinch hit double rounds out the extra base hits for the Lookouts.
HiA – The Quakes chewed up the Rawhide on Wednesday, doubling up on Visalia 4 to 2. Rancho starter Chris Anderson, on the final day that he can call himself the Dodgers most recent 1st round pick, recorded his 3rd win of the season after allowing just 4 hits and 2 runs over 6 innings. Daniel Coulombe followed with 2 shutout frames, then Blake Smith picked up the save for the second day in a row. At the plate Corey Seager broke out of his mini slump by going 2 for 4 with his ninth home run of the season, as captured by Steve Fiorindo of Big League Futures:
Brandon Dixon tripled, while Jose Capellan also had the team's only other multi-hit game and drove in two runs.
LoA – The Loons couldn't get anything going offensively on Wednesday as they fell to the Whitecaps (Tigers) 4 to 1. Outside of a Jacob Scavuzzo homer, his 4th of the year, Great Lakes didn't have an extra base hit. All Star Joey Curletta had the only multi-hit game as he went 2 for 4. On the mound Brandon Martinez took the hard luck loss as he allowed just 1 earned run over 5 frames. He struck out 4, walked 1, and gave up 2 more runs on a Brandon Trinkwon error. Ralston Cash and Jordan Hershiser each tossed a scoreless inning of relief.
DSL – The Dominican Dodgers lost their 3rd game in a row on Wednesday, falling to the Rays 7 to 4. The Dodger offense was again very quiet in this game, although Jimy Perez did hit the club's first homer of the season. Johan Mieses' second triple of the year was the only other extra base it for the good guys. Starter Miguel Urena had the team's best start of the young season as he allowed just 3 hits over 5 shutout innings while punching out 4. Unfortunately Max Gooding then came out of the bullpen and promptly walked the first three batters he faced, which all eventually came around to score. The only highlight out of the bullpen was Jesus Canizales making his professional debut and tossing 2 perfect frames.
Coming up – Everyone plays on Thursday evening, with Julio Urias and the Quakes highlighting the day's action. Scott Barlow takes the mound for the Loons, Nick Struck gets the call for the Lookouts, and Sam Demel toes the rubber for the Isotopes. The Albuquerque game, a 7:05 p.m. PT start in Tacoma, will be televised by CBS Sports Network.
