Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 4-3 vs. Iowa Cubs
Elih Villanueva, SP: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 SO, HR
New Orleans tied Iowa in the the bottom of the sixth, and the score would remain unchanged for nine additional innings. Alex Burg finally ended the nearly five hour marathon with a walk off single, scoring Rob Brantly.
Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
W 6-4 @ Chattanooga Lookouts
Mark Canha, 1B: 3-for-4, 2 R, 2 B, SO
Jacob Realmuto, C: 1-for-2, R, HR, BB
Anthony DeSclafani, SP: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 9 SO, HR
After batting just .225 in July, Jake Realmuto has looked better thus far in August, hitting .333/.438/.542 in 29 plate appearances. He hit his fifth home run of the season, raising his season line to .240/.309/.359. With just two weeks left in the year, it's unlikely that his final numbers will look too inspiring.
High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
W 2-1 vs. St. Lucie Mets
Josh Hodges, SP: 6.2 IP, 3 H, R, ER, 2 BB, 6 SO
Brent Keys just can't stop getting hits. His .353 batting average is impressive enough - but he's also been a model of consistency for the Hammerheads. Keys has not had any prolonged slumps, batting well throughout the season in the lead-off position.
Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
L 2-3 vs. Kannapolis Intimidators
Colin Moran, 2-for-4, 2 R, 2B, HR, SO
Daniel Oliver, SP: 6.0 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 7 SO
Colin Moran had one of his better nights of the year, scoring all of Greensboro's runs. Unfortunately, the rest of the offense failed to deliver, and the Intimidators won.
Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
L 0-4 vs. State College Spikes
Avery Romero, 2B: 0-for-4, 2 SO
Chad Wallach, C: 0-for-3
Ryan Newell, SP: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 9 SO
The Muckdogs offense was largely silent, reaching base only three times and scoring no runs. Key contributors like Avery Romero were held hit less.
