Kyle Jensen had four hits in the Zephyr's win at home, Andrew Heaney was awesome in his Double-A debut, Angel Sanchez continued to make his case for a promotion, and Felix Munoz had two home runs to earn Batavia a 3-2 win in Connecticut.

Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3B: 2-for-5, 2 RBI

Jared Rogers, SP: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

New Orleans tallied fifteen hits on Thursday night at Zephyr Field, and even though only one of those was an extra-base hit, the Zephyrs still managed to put nine runs on the board. Kyle Jensen had four hits and Kevin Kouzmanoff continued his hot hitting of late, going 2-for-5. New Orleans improves to 55-58 with the victory.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
W 5-1 vs. Chattanooga Lookouts

Full Box Score

Mark Canha, 1B: 1-for-3, BB, 3B, 3 RBI

Andrew Heaney, SP: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Andrew Heaney made a big impression on the home crowd at Bragan Field on Thursday, pitching six scoreless innings. On a personal note, this gets me fired up! Maybe it's the Marlins recent process of drafting pitchers or maybe it's the coaches that are working with them in the minors, but the Marlins really seem to know what they're doing with prospects like Heaney and Jose Fernandez, for example. For all that's wrong with the Marlins organization and how it's run, this area of the Marlins, player development, deserves endless praise for the results they've been getting.

Anyways, back to the game, Heaney only needed 79 pitches to get through Joc Pederson and the Lookouts hitters. The Suns scored four of their runs in the seventh inning, largely thanks to a clutch Mark Canha triple.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
L 4-5 (F/10 )vs. Brevard County Manatees

Full Box Score

Ryan Goetz, CF: 3-for-5, RBI

Angel Sanchez, SP: 6.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Jupiter lost a very tough game at Roger Dean Stadium on Thursday night, falling to 56-52 on the season with the loss. Brevard County scored three runs in the eighth inning and two runs in the tenth to steal the win. On the bright side, Angel Sanchez was fantastic once again, this time pitching almost seven scoreless innings. Sanchez has still yet to allow two runs in any of his five starts since the trade.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
Game postponed

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
W 3-2 @ Connecticut Tigers

Full Box Score

Felix Munoz, 1B: 3-for-, 2 HR (3,4), 3 RBI

Jarlin Garcia, SP: 6 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

Felix Munoz had three of Batavia's four hits and he drove in all of Batavia's three runs. His solo homer off of Tanner Bailey in the ninth was all the cushion that Josh Easley needed to finish off the Tigers in the ninth. Also of note, Jarlin Garcia continued to dominate, as now he has a 14:3 K/BB in his last two starts. Batavia improves to an even 21-21 with the victory.
