Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 3-2 vs. Albuquerque Isotopes
Duane Below, SP: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 2 R, ER, BB, 2 K
Despite a valiant outing from Duane Below and a great day at the plate from Bryan Petersen, Jacksonville was not able to overcome the almighty Isotopes.
Bryan Petersen is hitting .364 with homers in his last ten games. For someone who only hit three homers all of last year, maybe Petersen has tapped into more of his raw power.
Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 2-3 @ Birmingham Barons
Birmingham scored three runs in the first inning of Saturday's ballgame against Jacksonville, and that was enough to win. Jacksonville falls to 31-28 with the loss.
Aside from the first inning, Jay Jackson was absolutely dominant, once again. Jackson was born in Greenville, South Carolina, the same state that produced none other than Shoeless Joe Jackson.
High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
Game suspended after seven innings due to rain
Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
L 6-7 vs. Kannapolis Intimidators
Jesus Solorzano, RF: 3-for-4, SB (17)
Viosergy Rosa, 1B: 2-for-3, HR (13), BB, 2 RBI
Yordy Cabrera, 3B: 2-for-4, HR (9), 2 RBI
Matt Milroy, SP: 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 5 BB, 5 K
On Princess Night at NewBridge Bank Park, Greensboro feel to the intimidating Kannapolis team. Jesus Solorzano did have three hits, raising his batting average on the season to .281, which is pretty impressive considering he hit .230 in the month of May. If Solorzano can keep this up, he should be in Jupiter before too long.
