AAA – Postponed
AA – Chris Reed had a rough outing on Tuesday as the Lookouts fell to the Barons (White Sox) 10 to 5. Reed didn't make it out of the 5th inning as he allowed 8 hits, 2 walks, and 6 runs while striking out 4. Jarret Martin also had a less than stellar day as he gave up 2 more runs in relief, while Juan Noriega also permitted a score out of the bullpen. At the dish Bobby Coyle connected on a couple of doubles and Casio Grider went 2 for 4 with a 2-run homer, but that was it for the offensive highlights.
HiA – The Quakes used a 5-run 7th inning to shoot down the Mavericks (Mariners) 10 to 7. Steven Prosica had the big hit during the pivotal frame with as his bases clearing double drove in 3, while Robbie Garvey fell a homer shy of the cycle and scored 3 runs. Brandon Dixon also had 3 hits, and Corey Seager went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk, and a RBI. Starter Jharel Cotton didn't throw well in the win as he allowed 10 hits and 5 runs in just 4.1 innings. Gustavo Gomez gave up 2 more runs in relief, although both were unearned, while Rob Rogers recorded his 5th save of the season by getting the final 4 outs.
LoA – The Loons managed just 4 hits in a 4 - 1 loss to the Silver Hawks (Dbacks). Jacob Scavuzzo connected on a solo homer and Paul Hoenecke tripled, but that was the only offense to speak of for Great Lakes. Starter Zachary Bird threw well despite the loss as he allowed just 2 hits and 1 earned run over 5 frames while punching out 6. Jordan Hershiser also struck out 6 in relief despite just throwing 3 innings, although he also gave up a pair of homers.
Rookie Ogden – The Raptors won for the first time in over a week as Ogden defeated the Chukars (Royals) 4 to 1. Starter J.D. Underwood picked up his first win of the season with 5 solid innings, striking out 7 and allowing just 1 run. Trevor Oaks followed with outstanding relief as he allowed just 2 hits over 3 scoreless frames, then A.J. Vanegas picked up his first save with a hitless 9th. At the dish Julian Leon went 3 for 4 with a triple and 2 RBI's, while Jaylen Harris drove in the only other run for the Raptors.
Rookie Arizona – The Arizona Dodgers allowed 8 early runs and that was too much to overcome in a 10 - 4 loss to the Dbacks. Starter Jairo Pacheco was responsible for all 8 of those early runs, although only 3 of those runs were earned thanks to a quartet of Dodger errors. Once Pacheco left the game his reliever did solid work, including 4.1 strong frames from Yeuri Gonzalez that included 5 K's. Despite 9 hits for the Dodgers there is only one player worth mentioning as Deivy Castillo went 4 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI's.
DSL – The Dominican Dodgers doubled up on the Indians in a 4 - 2 win. Center fielder Johan Mieses connected on the game's only homer, a 2-run bomb, but that was the only extra base hit for the Dodgers. Samuel Ortiz had the only other RBI with a single. Starter Hector Rodriguez picked up the win by allowing just 1 run over 5 frames. Adriel Almonte lowered his ERA to 0.90 with 2 hitless innings, then Johan Diaz picked up the 6 out save.
Coming up – The Isotopes will play a double header on Wednesday, with Red Patterson taking the mound in game 1 and Carlos Frias getting the ball in game 2. Andres Santiago is the scheduled starter for the Lookouts, Tom Windle gets the call for the Quakes, Brandon Martinez toes the rubber for the Loons, and Abdiel Velasquez will starts for the Raptors.
