New Orleans Zephyrs (31-31)
Last night the Zephyrs got back to the .500 mark with a 6-0 victory over the Round Rock Express. Noteworthy to the Marlins, Chris Narveson pitched seven strong innings, striking out eight and allowing just two hits. He walked nobody and didn't allow any runs.
Jacksonville Suns (26-38)
The Suns played the Mobile BayBears even for nine innings, sending the game to extra innings tied at seven thanks to Austin Dean's sacrifice fly in the eighth inning to score Yefri Perez. Unfortunately, the Bears won on a Ildemaro Vargas walk-off RBI-single in the 10th. Peter Mooney went two-for-six with a walk and three RBI, including a two-run shot in the first inning. Francisco Arcia and Chris Curley also went deep for the Suns.
Jupiter Hammerheads (30-33)
The Daytona Tortugas rode a nine-inning no-hitter on the back of Tyler Mahle to defeat the Hammerheads by a 4-0 count. Mahle didn't walk anyone, and faced the minimum 27 batters. It was not a perfect game due to Mahle hitting Brian Schales with a pitch in the bottom of the third. Schales was erased a moment later on a Justin Bohn double play.
Greensboro Grasshoppers (34-30)
The Grasshoppers defeated the Tourists, 4-3 despite an Asheville two-run ninth inning. 1b Angel Reyes had two RBI on a home run and a double. Jose Quijada pitched three innings in relief, allowing one hit and striking out five. The Grasshoppers assigned Kris Goodman to the Batavia Muckdogs and activated 1b Josh Naylor from the injured list.
Class-A Short Season
Batavia Muckdogs (0-0)
The Muckdogs begin play on Friday, with the rest of the New York-Penn League. Earlier today, they cut Miami's 2013 fourth round pick, K.J. Woods. Woods had hit .155 in 24 games for the Grasshoppers earlier this season, and struck out 34 times in 84 at bats.
DSL Marlins (2-5)
The Dominican Summer League Marlins dropped an 8-2 decision to the DSL Dodgers(2). The Marlins committed six errors in the loss, including three by Enmanuel Rodriguez. Rodriguez, a shortstop by trade, was out of position as the Marlins' emergency third baseman after regular third baseman Gerardo Nunez was defensively replaced in the bottom of the third. The Marlins also had a tough night from pitcher Julio Frias, who allowed four earned runs on four walks and seven hits in four innings. He struck out four Dodgers.
Miami Marlins (33-31)
The big club had a pretty good game too, defeating the Padres 13-4 in late action last night. Martin Prado had three hits, including a home run and three RBI, while Adeiny Hechavarria had a season-high four RBI. Ichiro Suzuki also collected three hits to bring his career total to 2,977.
The same six affiliates will be in action tonight against the same opponents, excepting the rookie-league Marlins, who will be playing the DSL Red Sox (1).
