Scranton defeats Lehigh Valley, 7-0
- Alfredo Aceves got the start, and the Mexican Gangster was just that, giving up just 3 hits and a walk in 8 scoreless, and striking out 6.
- Steven Jackson, recently demoted from the bigs, gave up 2 hits in a scoreless inning of work.
- Shelley Duncan was 1 for 3 with his 7th homer of the year and a walk. He’s hitting .370 on the year, and a little part of me keeps wondering if he could hit major league pitching if given enough play time.
- Juan Miranda was 1 for 4.
- Austin Jackson was 1 for 3 with a walk, and is hitting .356.
- Eric Duncan, at 3rd again, was 2 for 4, raising his average to .313 on the season.
Trenton falls to Connecticut, 3-2
- Zach McAllister struggled a little by his standards, giving up 3 runs (2 earned on 5 hits and an uncharacteristic 4 walks in 4 innings, while striking out 5. According to Mike Ashmore, McAllister was not pulled after 4 innings because he was hurt, but rather, because he was “ineffective and inefficient.”
- Reegie Corona was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Marcos Vechionacci was 2 for 4.
- Colin Curtis and Jorge Vazquez were each 0 for 4.
Tampa blanked by Lakeland, 5-0
- Lance Pendleton was decent as the starter, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits and 2 walks, and struck out 3.
- Jesus Montero, Brandon Laird, and Damon Sublett were each 0 for 4. Montero also made a throwing error, and allowed 4 of 5 runners to steal successfully off of him. He’s still OPS’ing .981, so all is well.
- Austin Romine was 1 for 4, and is hitting .275 on the year.
Charleston loses in a slugfest, 12-10
- Brett Marshall had the worst start of his young career, giving up 8 runs (only 4 earned) on 6 hits and 2 walks in 4 innings, and only struck out one.
- Ray Kruml was 4 for 5 with a double.
- Taylor Grote was 1 for 3 with 2 walks.
- David Adams was 2 for 5 with 2 doubles and a steal. He may be heating up, as he has multiple hits in 4 of the last 6 games.
- Abe Almonte was 0 for 5.
- Melky Mesa was 2 for 5 with his 5th homer of the year.
- Garrison Lassiter was 0 for 4.
- Chase Weems was 2 for 3 with 2 doubles, a walk, an error, and 2 passed balls.
- Carmen Angelini had the night off, but I’m sure he made an error from the bench.
