Triple-A: Sacramento 10 - Memphis 3

  • Charlie Tilson (CF): 1-4, 2B, BB, K
  • Greg Garcia (SS): 1-4, R, 2B, BB, K, CS

  • J.C. Sulbaran (SP): 5 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 2 BB, 4 K, 2 HR
  • Sam Tuivailala (SP): 1 IP, 1 H, 2 K

David Washington continues to beat up on the Pacific Coast League, he has a 168 wRC+ and is tied for the Memphis team lead with 3 HR in only 49 at-bats...Charlie Tilson's BB% and ISO are career bests and his K% is close to it, but his line has only been good for a 91 wRC+ so far.

Double A: Springfield 5 - Tulsa 3

  • Harrison Bader (CF): 0-2, R, 2 BB, SB
  • Bruce Caldwell (2B): 2-4, 2 RBI
  • Paul Dejong (3B): 0-4, 2 K
  • Carson Kelly (C): 1-3, R, BB
  • Daniel Poncedeleon (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 5 K

A Advanced: Palm Beach 6 - Lakeland 0

  • Vaughn Bryan 0-3, R, 2 BB, 2 K, SB
  • Blake Drake (CF): 2-3, 1 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, K, SB
  • Oscar Mercado (SS): 1-2, R, BB, SB
  • Matt Pearce (SP): 9 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K

Matt Pearce threw his first career shutout last night, the 6 strikeouts were a season high. Oscar Mercado's stolen base was his 13th of the year which tied him for the Florida State League lead.

Class A: Peoria 4 - Kane County 3

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 1-4, R, SB
  • Edmundo Sosa (SS): 0-4, K
  • Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 1-4, R, RBI, 2 K, 2 SBI
  • Chris Chinea (DH): 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
  • Sandy Alcantara (SP): 7 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 10K

Magneuris Sierra still isn't walking much or hitting for an power, but his average is keeping him afloat right now...Eliezer Alvarez's full-season breakout continues .294/.379/.452, and 11 stolen bases...Sandy Alcantara has issues with free passes this year, but his career high 10 strikeouts last year pushed his K rate to 27%.
