Double-A Trenton lost to New Hampshire, 3-2
New Hampshire scored three by the third inning, and held on despite Trenton scoring two in the fifth on a Melky Mesa double and Ramiro Pena RBI single. Pena played five innings in the field and was 1-for-3 overall. Corban Joseph was 2-for-4 and doubled. Graham Stoneburner gave up five hits, three runs, three walks, and struck out six in six innings.

Low-A Charleston lost to Savannah, 11-8
Charleston scored two in the second on a Taylor Grote double, but Savannah tied it with two in the fourth and then took control of the game with seven in the fifth (!!!). Charleston actually scored five in the seventh, but Savannah held on. Shane Brown was 3-for-5 with a double, and many others contributed offensively, but obviously, the pitching stunk. Shane Greene gave up eight runs, seven earned, over just 3.2 innings, with three hits, five walks, two hit batters, and six strikeouts. Control, kid.

Staten Island beat Vermont, 6-4
Staten Island scored a run in the third on a sac fly. After Vermont had re-tied it, SI scored three times in the bottom of the fourth to take the lead again. Tyler Austin homered, and Casey Stevenson was 1-for-2, the one hit a double, and also walked twice. Will Oliver gave up a run on five hits, two walks, and two strikeouts over five innings.

The GCL Yankees lost to the GCL Marlins, 9-2
This was the second game of the best-of-three championship, and the final deciding game will take place tomorrow. Anyway, not much to see here. Evan Rutckyj got hit hard, for five runs in just 3.2 innings, and both Edwin Rodriguez and Danny Martinez gave up two runs in relief. Henry Pena hit a home run, at least.
