GCL Marlins (6-7)

Gulf Coast League (Rookie)

Early this afternoon, the GCL Marlins hosted the GCL Mets (7-5) at Roger Dean Stadium, and dropped a 3-1 decision.

Colby Suggs started, and pitched a perfect inning before giving way to Humberto Mejia (1-1, 1.42). Mejia allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits and a walk in 3.2 innings. Luis Silva (1-1, 2.45) earned the win for the Junior Mets, striking out five and allowing two hits and a walk in seven very solid innings of work. Silva earned a 78 GameScore for his efforts.

DSL Marlins (6-23)

Dominican Summer League (Rookie-FRL)

This morning at Boca Chica North Field, deep in the Dominican Republic, the DSL Marlins lost to the DSL Phillies (12-18), 5-1.

The Phillies scored early, putting a "1" on the board in the first inning when Keudy Bocio drew a lead-off walk, stole second and third base, and scored on an RBI-groundout by Henry Santana.

The Marlins tied it in the top of the third on a Jhon Garcia RBI-single, then the Phillies took their lead back in the fifth when Luis Liriano hit an RBI-single. The Phils added two more in the frame, on a Jose Estrada RBI-single and a Keudy Bocio RBI-groundout. In the sixth, Yeremin Lara issued a bases-loaded walk to Liriano for the Phillies fifth and final run of the contest.

The River Monsters racked up four runs in the bottom of the fifth on an Eric Marinez two-run single and a Miguel Mercedes (4) two-run homer.

Greensboro Grasshoppers (50-35)

South Atlantic League (Single-A)

The Grasshoppers were up 2-0 over the Kannapolis Intimidators (33-52) in the third inning courtesy of a Kyle Barrett round-tripper when the game was interrupted by excessive precipitation. They'll continue the scheduled nine-inning contest where they left off tomorrow starting at 5PM, presumably with an identical batting order and also presumably with two new starting pitchers. The regularly scheduled contest will play at as nearly as scheduled as possible, and is set to go seven innings with Cody Poteet (3-6, 3.20) to face off against Luis Martinez (3-7, 4.50).

Jupiter Hammerheads (39-45)
