Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
L 0-1 @ Iowa Cubs
Brian Flynn, SP: 7.2 IP, 3 H, BB, 9 SO
Brian Flynn made perhaps his best start in months. He could have lasted eight innings, if it weren't for the fact that he walked the potentially winning run into scoring position. Jonathan Albaladejo got the Zephyrs out of the jam, but they ultimately lost in the next inning to walk-off single.
Double-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
L 2-3 @ Clearwater Threshers
Josh Hodges, SP: 7.0 IP, 5 H, R, ER, BB, 3 SO
The top two hitters in the Hammerheads lineup each walked three times and singled. Unfortunately, their successors failed to drive them home. Cleanup hitter Austin Barnes went hit-less in six plate appearances. Jupiter ultimately lost in a 13th inning walk-off.
Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
W 3-2 vs. Hagerstown Suns
Colin Moran, 3B: 1-for-4, SO
Chad James, SP: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 7 SO
Chad James achieved season highs in both walks and strikeouts, lowering his season ERA to 5.84. The 22-year-old and former first round pick would be age appropriate for Double-A baseball.
Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
L 0-7 vs. Jamestown Jammers
Avery Romero, 2B: 1-for-3, SO
Max Garner, SP: 2.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, BB
Rookie: GCL Marlins
L 2-7 @ GCL Nationals
K.J. Woods, LF: 0-for-2, 2 BB
Iramis Olivencia, 2B: 0-for-1, R, 2 BB
Gabriel Castellanos, SP: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 SO
Gabriel Castellanos did not have a good night. In addition to walking four batters in just two innings of work, the 19-year-old left-hander also made two costly errors.
