Full Box Score

Nick Green, 2B: 0-for-4, 3 SO
Kyle Jensen, LF: 1-for-3, SO

Sam Dyson, SP: 7.0 IP, 2 H, BB, 4 SO

A dismal day at the plate for the Zephyrs spoiled an excellent performance by Sam Dyson, who pitched seven scoreless innings. The bullpen imploded in the ninth inning, as Josh Wall allowed two runs, raising his ERA to 4.96.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 2-4 @ Chattanooga Lookouts

Full Box Score

Jacob Realmuto, C: 2-for-5, R, 2B, SO

Grant Dayton, RP: 2.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO, HR

The Suns battled a tough Zack Cox for six innings, and for six innings they failed to score off him. Finally, Jake Realmuto broke the silence by scoring Alex Burg on a double to left field. Mark Canha doubled again to score Realmuto. Unfortunately, the runs were too little, too late.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
L 1-3 @ Bradenton Marauders

Full Box Score

Ryan Fisher, 1B: 2-for-4, 1B, 2B, SO

Jake Esch, SP: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 9 SO

Jupiter looked sloppy in all aspects of play, giving up three errors and reaching base only four times. Quite appropriately, their only run of the game came off a double play.

W 11-10 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds

Full Box Score

Justin Bohn, SS: 3-for-6, 2 R, 2B, BB, SO

Jesus Solorzano has also been hot recently, with a .333/.377/.542 line in August.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
W 2-1 @ Auburn Doubledays

Full Box Score

Avery Romero, 2B: 0-for-4, SO

Trevor Williams, SP: 3.0 IP, H, R, 2 BB, SO

While Trevor Williams has been capped at three innings per outing, he's looked reasonable strong in all nine starts. The right-hander has a 2.77 ERA and has allowed only eight walks.

Rookie: GCL Marlins
L 4-8 @ GCL Nationals

Full Box Score

K.J. Woods, LF: 1-for-3, BB, 2 SO
Iramis Olivencia, 2B: 2-for-4, R, HR

Adam Westmoreland, SP: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 2 SO

After pitching a scoreless inning, reliever Ryan Wertenberger fell apart in the eight, allowing four runs to score. He even caused a runner to score by hitting a batter with the bases loaded. A tie game quickly turned into a huge deficit for the GCL Marlins.
