Domingo German threw six hitless innings in Batavia's 6-2 win and Jacksonville lost a dramatic extra innings affair with Mississippi to determine the final playoff team in the Southern League.

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs

L 3-4 vs. Albuquerque Isotopes

Full Box Score

Kyle Skipworth, C: 1-for-4, HR (11), RBI

Elih Villanueva, SP: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

The Isotopes scored on a fluky single in the top of the ninth to defeat New Orleans in their last game of the regular season. New Orleans finishes the year at 72-72, they never seemed to be able to get over the .500 winning percentage hump. Without a playoff berth, the Zephyrs won't be back on the field until 2014.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns

L 5-6 (F/11) vs. Mississippi Braves

Full Box Score

Mark Canha, 1B: 1-for-5, 2B, 3 RBI
Isaac Galloway, CF: 2-for-5, 2B

Justin Nicolino, SP: 3.2 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

The Suns lost a heartbreaking play-in game to get into the Southern League playoffs as the last team. It took eleven innings, but Mississippi just barely snuck past the Suns. Justin Nicolino had a disappointing end to the season, giving up five runs early in the ballgame. Jacksonville has had a roller coaster season with plenty of ups and downs and talented players coming and going. Next season will sure to be a great year back in Jacksonville, but it's a real bummer that this season had to end the way it did.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads

L 3-6 vs. St. Lucie Mets

Full Box Score

Ryan Rieger, 1B: 2-for-3, HR (7), 2 RBI

Josh Hodges, SP: 6.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Jupiter lost their final home game of the season to St. Lucie despite Ryan Rieger having a big day at the plate. Hammerheads starting pitcher Josh Hodges was let down by his defense and he struggled to keep runners off the basepaths. Jupiter only has a couple more games left in their season, all of them in St. Lucie.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers

Game at Lakewood postponed due to rain.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs

W 6-2 vs. Williamsport Crosscutters

Full Box Score

Chad Wallach, C: 2-for-3, 2 RBI

Domingo German, SP: 6 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Domingo German pitched six hitless innings against Williamsport in his final start of the season. Chad Wallach led the Muckdogs lineup in front of 703 spectators at the historic Dwyer Stadium. German recaps a breakout season, both in the GCL and in Batavia, in which he posted a 1.61 ERA and only gave up one homer in 67 innings pitched.
