Pacific Coast League

New Orleans Baby Cakes 2, Nashville Sounds 3

Adam Conley had a quality start for the Baby Cakes (23-44) with 11,678 in attendance at First Tennessee Park, but the Nashville Sounds (35-31) finished with a walkoff, 3-2 victory.

Conley pitched six frames, giving up two runs on four walks and four hits while striking out three. He finished with a 57 GameScore, getting 60-of-99 pitches into the zone. Brian Ellington pitched two scoreless hitless innings, but allowed three walks, and Kyle Lobstein (0-1, 0.00) took the loss, allowing an unearned run on a hit and two walks in the bottom of the ninth.

The Sounds, the triple-A team for the Oakland Athletics, struck in the bottom of the third to open the scoring on a Bruce Maxwell sacrifice fly, then held the lead until the seventh, when Maxwell collected another RBI on a bases loaded walk. The Cakes came back in the top of the eighth with a Mike Aviles RBI-single and a Cal Towey bases loaded walk to tie the contest at two. Renato Nunez finished it with two outs, the bases loaded, and a full count with a single to left field, scoring Matt McBride with the winning run. Each team finished with just five hits.

Greensboro Grasshoppers 8, Delmarva Shorebirds 2 (6)

The Grasshoppers (37-30) defeated the Delmarva Shorebirds (28-39) by an 8-2 final in a rain-shortened six-inning contest with 7,114 in the house at First National Bank Field.

Kolton Mahoney (2-2, 1.88) earned the win by pitching to a 60 GameScore by getting 40-of-61 over the plate. He whiffed four over five innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and no walks. Kyle Keller pitched a perfect inning of relief.

Colby Lusignan opened the scoring with a two-run shot in the bottom of the first inning, his sixth of the season. The Hoppers added a run on an Eric Gutierrez RBI-single in the third.

The Shorebirds, the Baltimore Orioles single-A affiliate, brought in their pair of runs on a fourth-inning Chris Clare single, but that was as close as Delmarva got. The fifth inning would see the Hoppers score four runs on a Luis Pintor (2) solo homer, a James Nelson sacrifice fly, and a Justin Twine two-RBI single. They added another on a Corey Bird RBI-groundout.

The Hoppers racked up 10 hits in 27 at bats for an in-game .370 batting average. Gutierrez and Boo Vazquez each picked up a pair of hits.

The Marlins defeated the Braves, 4-2, Saturday morning in DSL action. They scored four runs despite collecting only three singles, from Bryan Pineda, Walner Espinel, and Miguel Pena. Omar Lebron stole his seventh base in just his 11th game of the season.

The Marlins scored a pair in the second inning on a Yefri Del Rosario wild pitch, then allowed the Braves to get back within a run in the fourth Eudis Lora RBI-double.

The Braves tied it on a Danyer Salazar RBI-groundout in the eighth, but the Marlins put two across the plate in the ninth on a Christoper Rodriguez RBI-groundout and a Miguel Pena RBI-single.
