Player of the day

Grant Holmes faced the 18 batters in his six I nnings as he won his first start in the second half of his season. Holmes did give up a hit and two walks but two caught stealings and one double play confined his work in each inning to the minimum three batters.

Darnell Sweeney and Darwin Barney each had two hits; Scott Schebler had a triple and was 1-for-2.

19-year-old outfielder Johan Mieses went 4-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and a walk. The team scored four runs despite going 1-for-15 with runners in scoring position.

Low Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons beat the TinCaps (Padres) 2-1 behind solid pitching by Grant Holmes, J.D. Underwood, and Buddy Rossman. After Holmes finished his six innings, Underwood gave up a run in two innings and Rossman got his third save.

The Raptors and Owlz (Angels) each scored three runs in the ninth inning, the Owlz last run gave them the 9-8 win. Matt Jones had three doubles, Willie Calhoun hit his third home run and Nick Dean was 2-for-5 with a home run.
