Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs W 6-2 vs. Memphis Redbirds
Mark Canha, 1B: 3-for-4, HR (13), RBI
Kyle Skipworth, C: 1-for-3, BB, HR (10), RBI
Alfredo Silverio, RF: 1-for-4, HR (1), 2 RBI
Brad Penny, SP: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
Adam Conley, RP: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
The Zephyrs scored four out of their six runs in Sunday's win via the home run. Canha, Skipworth, and Silverio all went deep as the Zephyrs moved to above .500. Brad Penny's second start of the year with New Orleans went much, much more smoother than his first, pitching five scoreless innings. Adam Conley finished out the game coming out of the bullpen for the first time in his career since 2011. However, no need for panic, the reasoning behind this was simply that the Zephyrs wanted to get Conley some work before their All-Star break, which begins on Monday.
Double-A: Jacksonville Suns L 8-14 @ Tennessee Smokies
J.T. Realmuto, C: 2-for-5, 2B, 2 SB (9,10), 2 RBI
Austin Barnes, 3B: 2-for-3, 2B, RBI
Justin Nicolino, SP: 4.1 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 2 BB
Jacksonville suffered a disappointing loss in Tennessee on Sunday. The Smokies had a 7-run fifth inning and a 5-run seventh inning to steal the win. J.T. Realmuto might not have had a fun day behind at the plate, but when he came up to bat, he was on fire. Realmuto stole two bases, which is particularly interesting because his 10 stolen bases on the season are seven more than the highest current MLB catcher. A catcher who is also a threat on the basepaths is an extremely rare commodity and you have to love how Realmuto continues to play fast and fearless.
High Class-A: Jupiter Hammerheads L 2-6 vs. Daytona Cubs
Blake Barber, DH: 2-for-4, RBI
Colin Moran, 3B: 1-for-3, BB
Matt Milroy, SP: 6 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 6 BB, 3 K
The Hammerheads dropped Sunday's home game against Daytona 2-6. Colin Moran did reach base twice in the loss. Moran, the Marlins 2013 first-round selection, is hitting over .300 in his first full minor league season and has shown no signs of slowing down. Moran has reached base a whopping 19 times in his last ten games and he has a nice 10-game hitting streak.
Low Class-A: Greensboro Grasshoppers W 6-3 vs. West Virginia Power
Carlos Lopez, DH: 3-for-5, 2 RBI
Austin Dean, LF: 2-for-4
Cody Crabaugh, SP: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Greensboro picked up their 60th win of the year Sunday at NewBridge Bank Park. As a whole, the Hoppers recorded 11 hits and only struck out five times. Cody Crabaugh has continued to improve and turn in more quality innings as the season has went on.
Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs W 4-3 @ Hudson Valley Renegades
Mason Davis, 2B: 2-for-4, 2B
Ben Holmes, SP: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
Jose Adames, RP: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
The top three hitters in the Muckdogs lineup all had doubles on Sunday in Hudson Valley. Getting a win against a team that has lost a mere 8 games this season should be a big morale booster for Batavia.
Rookie: GCL Marlins
No game scheduled.
