Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (58-39)

Class-A Short Season Hudson Valley Renegades (20-13)
After falling into a 4-0 hole, the Renegades rallied to win the game by the score of 7-5. Offensively, Hudson Valley totaled 11 hits, with Granden Goetzman a home run shy of the cycle. Aaron Griffin ran into trouble early, allowing five runs while not making it out of the fifth inning.
Rookie Princeton Rays (6-22)
The struggles continued for the Rays as their lackluster offense failed to make up for their mediocre pitching in a 5-3 defeat. Jacob Faria pitched superbly as the starter, going six innings of one run ball with two hits, no walks, and seven strikeouts. However, Edgar Gomez allowed four runs in relief. The Princeton Rays offense tallied only one hit.
Rookie GCL Rays (10-15)
A poor start from Grayson Garvin cost the Rays in their 4-1 loss. Garvin, in a rehab stint, failed to escape the first inning, allowing two runs. Alexander Simon and Taylor Hawkins were the only two batters to reach base multiple times.
Star of the Day: His team lost, but it was quite the night for Jacob Faria.
Goat of the Day: Princeton is a mess right now.
