Full Box Score

Ed Lucas, SS: 2-for-5
Bryan Petersen, RF: 2-for-5, RBI

Brian Flynn, SP: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 5 K, 2 HR

Brian Flynn had a rough start facing a potent Fresno lineup, but on the bright side, he does have fourteen strikeouts and no walks in his last two starts. Flynn struggled keeping the ball in the ballpark, as he allowed two homers, which accounted for five out of the six runs he allowed.

Arquimedes Caminero, RP: 1.0 IP, K
Michael Brady, RP: 1.0 IP, K, SV (7)

Both Jake Marisnick and Kyle Jensen went yard in Jacksonville's 3-1 in Mississippi. Arquimedes Caminero and Michael Brady both came on in relief of Sam Dyson and took care of their business.

High Class-A: Jupiter Hammerheads
W 5-2 @ Palm Beach Cardinals

Full Box Score

Alex Burg, 1B: 1-for-4, HR (1), 3 RBI
Brent Keys, LF: 2-for-5, RBI
Austin Nola, SS: 2-for-4, 2B, BB
Austin Barnes, DH: 1-for-4, 2B, BB

Jose Urena, SP: 6.0 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, BB, 5 K
Jordan Conley, RP: 1.1 IP, H, SV (3)

Jose Urena had a nice bounce back start for Jupiter, as he pitched six dominant innings in the win. His 4.74 ERA isn't at all telling of the success he has had this year, aside from a few rough starts. Brent Keys had his third straight multi-hit game, raising his average on the season to .367 in fourteen games.

Low Class-A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
W 8-5 @ Lakewood BlueClaws

Full Box Score

Cameron Flynn, LF: 3-for-4, 2 3B, 2 RBI
Anthony Gomez, SS: 2-for-4, BB, RBI

Daniel Oliver, SP: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 K

Behind two triples from Cameron Flynn, Greensboro was able to score a bunch of runs against Lakewood on Saturday. Flynn, selected out of Kentucky in the 23rd round of the 2012 Amateur Draft, is fairly raw and doesn't have the number of innings under his belt that many players drafted out of college do, due to missing an entire year in college with a hand injury. For a player that only had two triples in the entire 2012 season, two in one game is even more impressive.
