Jose Urena, SP: 7.0 IP, 9 H, R, ER, BB

Jose Urena miraculously lasted seven innings despite generating zero strikeouts. He made up for his lack of swing-and-miss stuff by showing solid control, walking just one batter. His ERA for the season fell to 4.26.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
L 10-4 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds

Full Box Score

Michael Main, CF: 2-for-4, 2 R, 2B

Austin Brice, SP: 3.2 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 6 BB, 2 SO, HR

Austin Brice's struggles in the South Atlantic League continued yesterday in another horrific start. He has walked an unacceptable 31 batters in 38 and one-third innings pitched this year, and has a 6.57 ERA. Brice turns 21 in June, so in theory, he should be young enough that his control issues are correctable. The Marlins' coaching staff have their work cut out for them.
