Alex Reyes made his big league debut. Luke Weaver got the news that he will get the ball on Saturday afternoon in Wrigley. Memphis played another double-header, and the bats struggled again. Springfield jumped all over the Rough Riders. And Junior Fernandez had a tough night.

Triple-A: New Orleans 6 - Memphis 4 (7 Innings)

  • Randal Grichuk (CF): 0-4
  • Jose Martinez (1B): 1-4, 3 RBI
  • David Washington (LF): 1-3, K
  • Harrison Bader (LF): 0-1, K
  • Carson Kelly (C): 0-3
  • Anthony Garcia (RF): 1-2, BB, K
  • Jacob Wilson (2B): 1-3, R, 2B
  • Kurt Heyer (SP): 5 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 5 , 1 HR

Triple-A: New Orleans 1 - Memphis 0 (7 Innings)

  • David Washington (RF): 1-2, 2B, BB
  • Mike Ohlman (C): 1-3
  • Harrison Bader (CF): 0-3, K
  • Thomas Lee (SP): 4 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K

Double A: Springfield 16 - Frisco 4

  • Paul DeJong (SS): 1-4, BB, K
  • Bruce Caldwell (2B): 3-5, 2 R, HR, RBI
  • Luke Voit (1B): 1-4, 2 R, RBI, BB, K
  • Blake Drake (CF): 3-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 6 RBI, 2 K
  • Vaughn Bryan (LF): 2-5, 2 R, RBI, K
  • Dan Poncedeleon (SP): 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 2 K
  • Rowan Wick (RP): 1 IP, 1 K

Springfield racked up 17 hits, but only 3 of them went for extra base hits. But 16 of the 25 base runners came around to score, which was more than enough.

Class A Advanced: Palm Beach 8 - Bradenton 7

  • Oscar Mercado (CF): 2-5, 2 R, 2B, 2 K, SB
  • Juan Herrera (SS): 3-5, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K, SB
  • Dylan Tice (2B): 1-4, R, RBI, BB, 2 K
  • Steve Bean (C): 1-5, 2 RBI
  • Junior Fernandez (SP): .2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 5 K
  • Landon Beck (RP): 2.2 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 0 K, 1 HR
  • Blake McKnight (RP): 4.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Cody Schumacher (RP): 3 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 5 K

"For whatever it's worth (absolutely nothing), Oscar Mercado has been a marginally better offensive player since becoming the full time center fielder. Dragging his slash stats up by 11 14 and 19 points respectively and stealing 5 bases over 13 games."

That is the exact same comment as yesterday, and it is still nice that he's been hitting a little better.

Class A: Peoria 8 - Cedar Rapids 6

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 1-4, R, K
  • Jose Martinez (SS): 2-4, R, RBI, BB
  • Eliezer Alvarez (2B): 2-3, R, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K, SB
  • Chris Chinea (1B): 1-4, R, RBI
  • Brian O'Keefe (C): 0-4, R, RBI
  • Ronnie Williams (SP): 5 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 5 , HR

For much of the season the three headed C/DH/1B hydra of Chinea, O'Keefe and Godoy had to carry the Chiefs' offense, but with Sierra hitting the ball a little better, Jose Martinez holding his own and the return of Eliezer Alvarez the order looks a lot deeper than it has in a while. Also that is a lot of up the middle offense, which is a nice bonus.

Class A Short Season: West Virginia 7 - State College 4

  • Tommy Edman (SS): 3-3, R, 2B, 2 BB, SB
  • Yariel Gonzalez (2B): 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, K
  • Jeremy Martinez (DH): 1-4
  • Danny Hudzina (3B): 2-4, R
  • Steve Farinaro (SP): 5.2 IP, 12 H, 5 R, 2 BB, 1 K

Rookie: Bristol 6 - Johnson City 2 (7 Innings)

  • J.R. Davis (2B): 1-3
  • Allen Cordoba (SS): 0-3
  • Matt Fiedler (RF): 1-3, 2B, K
  • Andrew Knizner (C): 0-3
  • Bryce Denton (3B): 0-3, K
  • Daniel Castano (SP): 5 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

  • J.R. Davis (2B): 1-3, 3B, SB
  • Allen Cordoba (SS): 1-3
  • Shane Billings (CF): 0-3, R, SB
  • Matt Fiedler (LF): 0-1, 2 R, 2 BB
  • Bryce Denton (DH): 1-3, 2 RBI
  • Ross Vance (SP): 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 8 K

  • Delvin Perez (SS): 1-2, R, 2B
  • Edwin Figuera (SS): 2-3, R

  • Brady Whalen (3B): 0-1, RBI, 3 BB
  • Walker Robbins (LF): 0-4, 2 K
  • Zac Gallen (SP): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
