El Paso 6 - Memphis 2

Notables:
  • Tommy Pham (CF): 2-4, R, RBI, BB, K, SB (14)
  • Randal Grichuk (LF-RF): 0-5, 2 K
  • Stephen Piscotty (RF): 0-3, BB
  • Ed Easley (C): 1-4, R, 2B, K
  • Pete Kozma (SS): 2-4
  • Mike O'Neill (PH-LF): 1-2

Notes:
  • Tommy Pham keeps chugging along, he's now hitting .341/.404/.508 this season and filling up box scores. His RBI came on a 2nd inning bases loaded walk.
  • Tyler Lyons has given up 15 runs in his last 3 starts (18 IP), although one of those games was in Albuquerque.
  • Before the season Baseball Prospectus' Jason Parks said Randal Grichuk's most likely big league role may be as a platoon outfielder. Grichuk hasn't done anything to dispel that notion in AAA, He is giving up almost 400 points of OPS (1.085-.693) against same side pitching this year.

Springfield 9 - Northwest Arkansas 8

Notables:
  • Charlie Tilson (CF): 2-4, R, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K
  • Breyvic Valera (2B): 1-5, R, K
  • Cody Stanley (DH): 2-5, RBI, K

  • Rafael Ortega (CF): 1-4, R, BB
  • Patrick Wisdom (3B): 0-2, R, 3 BB
  • Alex Mejia (SS): 1-5, R, 2 RBI
  • David Popkins (RF): 1-3, 2 R, RBI
  • Travis Tartamella (C): 1-4, R, RBI, K

  • Samuel Tuivailala (RP): 1.1 IP, BB, K
  • Mitch Harris (RP): 0.2 IP, H
  • Joey Donofrio (RP): 1.1 IP, H, 3 K
Notes:
  • Springfield was able to plate 9 runs on 11 hits, only 1 of which went for extra bases. The S-Cards did almost all of their damage in the 1st, when they sent 11 batters to the plate and 7 of them came in to score. 
  • Kurt Heyer and Seth Blair were not nearly as stingy with the extra base hits as their NW Arkansas counterparts. The pair allowed 5 homers (4 by Heyer) and a double in their 5.2 IP. The rest of the relievers who appeared for Springfield were able to get through the game unscathed.

Palm Beach 4 - Jupiter 3

Notables:
  • Nick Martini (CF): 0-2, 2 R, 2 BB
  • Aledmys Diaz (DH): 1-3
  • Luke Voit (1B): 2-5, 2 2B, RBI
  • Bruce Caldwell (2B-1B): 1-4, RBI, 2 K
  • David Washington (RF): 2-4, R, HR, 2 RBI
  • Tyrell Jenkinsl (SP): 7 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 3 K
  • Kevin Herget (RP): 1 IP, 2 K
Notes:
  • Kevin Herget, who has seen his K% this season almost double compared to last year, picked up right where he left off in his Florida State League debut.
  • David Washington's 8th inning, game winning homer was his 13th of the season, and the only home run in the system all night.

Beloit 3 - Peoria 0


Notables:
  • CJ McElroy (CF): 1-4
  • Juan Herrera (SS): 0-4, K
  • Carson Kelly (C): 0-4, K
  • Chase Brookshire (SP): 8 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 1 HR
  • Robert Stock (RP): 0.2 IP, 2 H, R, BB
Notes:
  • Chase Brookshire was the lone bright spot for Peoria. Brookshire had one of his strongest outings of the season, setting season highs for innings and strike outs, but the Chiefs bats were not able to back him with any offense.

GCL Mets 3 - GCL Cardinals 2

  • Magnueris Sierra (CF): 0-5, K
