Miami Marlins Daily Minor League Report: August 14

The Miami Marlins minor league affiliates were collectively swept in a disheartening day for the organization.

Marc Serota

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
L 1-8 @ Las Vegas 51s

Full Box Score

Alex Burg, 3B: 2-for-4, BB
Kyle Jensen, RF-LF: 0-for-4, 2 SO

Brad Hand, SP: 3.2 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO

25-year-old Alex Burg was aggressively promoted from high Class A to Triple-A, where he has performed nicely in his first week, batting .333.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
Game postponed

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
L 5-7 vs. Charlotte Stone Crabs

Full Box Score

Alfredo Lopez, LF: 3-for-4, R, BB, SO

Jake Esch, SP: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO

Reliever Kevin Cravey imploded in dramatic fashion during the seventh inning, surrendering five runs almost entirely off singles.

Full Box Score

Colin Moran, 3B: 0-for-4, SO

Austin Brice, SP: 0.2 IP, 4 H, 9 R, ER, 2 BB, SO

Sometimes box scores are very weird. This was one of those days, as Austin Brice was pulled after less than inning. The Power scored nine runs while he was on the mound, yet only one was charged as an earned run thanks to an error.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
L 2-4 vs. Jamestown Jammers

Full Box Score

J.T. Riddle, 3B: 2-for-3, BB

Jarlin Garcia, SP: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 7 SO

Jarlin Garcia delivered an excellent scoreless start for the Muckdogs, but the bullpen and defense couldn't hold the slim lead.

Rookie: GCL Marlins
L 2-3 @ GCL Nationals

Full Box Score

K.J. Woods, LF: 1-for-3, 2 R, HR, BB, 2 SO

Adam Westmoreland, SP: 3.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 SO, HR
