  • Wednesday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 7-5; Double-A Pensacola won, 8-2; High-A Beloit won, 14-3; Low-A Jupiter won, 4-1. Just when Jerar Encarnación looked to be cooling off, he erupted for a four-hit game (his first since 2018). Encarnación already has more runs scored in 2022 than he had all of last season for the Blue Wahoos.
