Rough night in the minors as only New Hampshire was able to pull out a win. Dunedin was rained out. At least Aaron Hill and Gabe Gross had decent nights.
Durham 10 Syracuse 1
Somebody must have forgotten to tell Syracuse that they had a game to play last night. All of the Skychiefs pitchers struggled with their command from starter Josue Matos right on through relievers Mike Smith, Mark Lukasiewicz and Dave Maurer who in total gave up 10 BBís along with a costly HBP and wild pitch combo from Smith.
Gabe Gross was the only Skychief with 2 hits and knocked in their only run. Russ Adams went 0-5. Noah Hall and Glenn Williams each reached twice with a hit and a walk.
New Britain 1 New Hampshire 5
Cam Reimers had another solid, if unspectacular, night going 7+ innings with 5 H, 1 BB and 2 Kís and 1 run on a solo shot in the 4th. Jordan DeJong relieved Reimers in the 8th with a pair on and no one out but got a couple key strikeouts to end the threat. DeJong went on to earn the 2 inning save.
Aaron Hill, Ty Godwin and Danny Solano all singled and walked while Dominic Rich and Maikel Jova each had doubles.
Palm Beach vs Dunedin Ė Postponed (Rain)
This matchup will be made up as part of a double header this afternoon with Jamie Vermilyea getting the afternoon start and Neomar Flores going in the evening.
Congrats to Carlo Cota for being named the FSL Player of the Week!
Hickory 9 Charleston 7
5 errors resulting in 3 unearned runs were Charlestonís downfall in this contest. At least this is the Alley Cats last season in run-down Watt Powell Park before moving into a new downtown stadium. Clint Johnston had 3 hits in the losing cause while Chris Snavely chipped in a pair of doubles and drove in 3. Ryan Roberts hit his 12 HR of the season.
Starter Ramon Moraís 6 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks in 4.0 IP didnít help matters while Marcos Sandoval and Felix Romero were unable to stop the bleeding.
A rather uninspiring group to choose from today but itís a chance to reward a guy who would normally get overlooked.
The 3rd Star Christian Snavely: 2-4 with a pair of doubles and 3 RBI
The 2nd Star Cam Reimers: 7 solid innings to lead the Fisher Cats to victory
The 1st Star Jordan DeJong: Came up big in a pinch and earned the save.
