Memphis beats Iowa 1-0
- Greg Garcia (2B), 2 for 3, 2B, K, CS
- Randal Grichuk (LF), 0 for 3
- Oscar Taveras (CF), 1 for 2
- Stephen Piscotty (RF), 0 for 3, K
- Pete Kozma (SS), 0 for 2
- Angel Castro, 6 2/3 IP, 8 Ks, BB, 3 Hits

To make up previously rained out games, the Redbirds hosted a doubleheader against Iowa yesterday. To make time for both games, this one was limited to just seven innings. It would have gone longer though, if Xavier Scruggs had not hit his 4th HR of the year in the bottom of the seventh to break the 0-0 tie.
Memphis leads Iowa 2-1
- Greg Garcia (2B), 1 for 3, HR, K, R, RBI
- Randal Grichuk (RF), 0 for 3, 2 Ks
- Oscar Taveras (CF), 1 for 3
- Thomas Pham (LF), 0 for 2, BB, 2 Ks
- Nick Greenwood, 3.0 IP, K, ER, 3 Hits
This game is ongoing -- they're going to pick it up today, hopefully. I imagine they'll just play out one more inning, and hopefully just a half inning if Memphis can preserve the lead in the top of the seventh today.
Springfield loses to Midland 4-9
- Mike O'Neill (LF), 0 for 5
- Rafael Ortega (CF), 0 for 4, 2 Ks, R, RBI
- Cody Stanley (C), 0 for 3, BB, K, R
- Patrick Wisdom (3B), 1 for 4, K
- Marco Gonzales, 4.0 IP, 7 Ks, BB, 4 Hits, 5 ER, HR
In his 9th start of the year, 3rd at AA, Marco Gonzales finally struggled. Although, his peripherals were still excellent as he struck out 7 of the 19 batters he faced and walked just one.
Palm Beach beats Daytona 7-2
- Charlie Tilson (CF), 2 for 4, BB, R, CS
- Breyvic Valera (2B), 2 for 5, R, RBI
- Casey Rasmus (C), 0 for 4, 2 Ks, 1 SB Allowed, 1 Pickoff at 2B
- Joe Cuda, 6.0 IP, 7 Ks, 2 BBs, 5 Hits, ER
Tilson still isn't hitting for very much power, but at least he's hitting. .297/.347/.335 on the year now, and .314/.385/.371 in the last ten. Palm Beach, and the Florida State League in general, is tough on offensive power, so that may be further limiting Tilson's power potential.
Peoria beats Burlington 2-1 in 12 Innings
- C.J. McElroy (LF), 1 for 5
- Vaughn Bryan (CF), 1 for 4, BB, K
- Juan Herrera (SS), 2 for 5, BB, 2 Ks, RBI
- Steve Bean (C), 0 for 4
- Kenneth Peoples-Walls (DH), 0 for 5, 2 Ks
- Michael Holback, 4.0 IP, 2 Ks, BB, ER, 3 Hits
- Chase Brookshire, 3.0 IP, 4 Ks, BB
- Chris Perry, 2.0 IP, 5 Ks
The Peoria pitching staff was just nasty in this one, tallying 18 Ks against 47 batters.
Ten games is a TINY sample size, but Bryan has looked good in it, hitting for average and drawing 5 BBs for a .390 OBP.
