Down On The Farm: April 7

USA TODAY Sports

A recap of the minor league action.

Saturday's action featured an extra inning win by Durham and a solid AA debut by Enny Romero.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (2-0)

In the first game of a planned doubleheader, the Durham Bulls won in the 11th inning by the score of 2-0. After a scoreless 10 innings, the Bulls came through with a two RBI single by Jason Bourgeois. After Colome pitched a scoreless five innings (two hits, two walks, four strikeouts), Josh Lueke, Frank De Los Santos, and Steve Geltz pitched a combined six scoreless innings.

The second game of the doubleheader was postponed.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (2-1)

Just like the Durham Bulls, the Montgomery Biscuits were engaged in a low scoring and tight affair. Down 1-0, the Biscuits responded by scoring a run in the fifth and sixth innings, winning by the score of 2-1. In the fifth inning, Mark Thomas scored on a sacrifice fly. A Mahtook triple to lead off the sixth inning led to their second run. In his four innings, top prospect Enny Romero allowed one unearned run while striking out four and walking two. Schenk, Sandoval, and Riefenhauser pitched the final five innings, allowing only two baserunners.

Advanced-A Charlotte Stone Crabs (1-2)

The Stone Crabs won their first game of the season yesterday behind a dominant pitching performance. The Stone Crabs did not allow a hit or a walk until the ninth inning, when Lenny Linsky allowed a run. Jesse Hahn was strong in his short debut, allowing nothing in three innings while striking out two batters. Jake Floethe picked up where Hahn left off, pitching five clean innings. On the offensive side, Jake Hager continued his strong start, going 2-4.

Single-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (1-2)

The Hot Rods were unable to complete the organizational sweep, losing 6-5 to South Bend. After Dylan Floro pitched five scoreless innings, Jensen and Garton allowed six runs. The Hot Rods only managed seven hits, but they walked six times. Thomas Coyle, two for four with a triple, was the offensive star for the Hot Rods.
