It was not a full slate of games for the St. Louis Cardinals prospects, Springfield and the DSL Cardinals had the night off. Peoria managed to make history.
- Xavier Scruggs was 3-5 with a 2B and 2 RBI.
- Nick Greenwood did not have a good night. He surrendered 12 hits, 9 ER and 4 HR in 3 IP.
- Blake McKnight had his worst start of the year for Palm Beach allowing 4 runs and 7 hits over 5 IP. Since he slid into the starting rotation at the beginning of the month he's struck out 18 batters in 22 innings and walked 3.
- Harrison Bader's 2 run home run in the 4th was his 6th of the year.
- Jack Flaherty and Mariano Dixon Llorens had absolute disaster outings. They allowed 13 earned runs and retired one batter between the 2 of them. Flaherty's ERA went up half a run and Llorens ERA went up almost 4 full runs.

Every affiliate will be in action today. Tyler Lyons will be on the mound for Memphis, and the increasingly interesting Matt Pearce will be on the bump to try and right the ship for Peoria.
