Triple-A Durham Bulls (82-51)
After scoreless first innings for both sides, the game between Durham and Norfolk was suspended due to weather.
Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (65-66)
Some spotty relief work and a bad offense led to Montgomery's 8-1 loss. After Mike Colla pitched three innings with one run charged to his name, Joe Van Meter, Jim Patterson, and Austin Hubbard all allowed multiple runs out of the bullpen. Mikie Mahtook went 2-4 while Delmon Young was hitless with two strikeouts in four plate appearances.
Advanced Class-A Charlotte Stone Crabs (62-61)
The offense was quiet and the bullpen poor in Charlotte's 3-0 loss to Jupiter. For the first seven innings, each team went without a run as starters Jacob Partridge and Scott Lyman matched each other. Both went seven innings, allowed two hits, and walked two batters. However, while Jupiter's bullpen continued to keep Charlotte off the board, Nate Garcia allowed three runs in two innings. Taylor Motter and Hector Guevara were the only two Stone Crabs to collect a hit.
Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (75-54)
The Hot Rods couldn't close out a victory in their 5-3 loss to West Michigan. They jumped out to a quick lead, scoring two runs in the first and one in the second. Though West Michigan scored a run in the seventh, Bowling Green entered the ninth inning with a 3-1 victory. Marcus Jensen, in his second inning of work, fell apart in the ninth, allowing four runs before Jose Molina finished the inning. Andrew Toles had two of the four hits for the Hot Rods.
Short Season Class-A Hudson Valley Renegades (30-33)
A six run second inning propelled Hudson Valley to a 6-0 defeat over Lowell. Though both teams had six hits each, Hudson Valley took advantage of theirs by bunching them together with all nine hitters heading to the plate in the second inning. Julian Riding's bases loaded triple pushed home three runs. Derek Lorea pitched 5.0 sharp innings, allowing only fours hits while walking none and striking out seven. Cory Jordan also pitched three scoreless frames in relief.
Rookie Princeton Rays (21-40)
Yoel Araujo shined in the Rays 10-3 win over Bristol. Though he has struggled this season, Araujo went 3-5 on Friday; two of the hits were home runs and he drove in six batters. Travis Flores also added a home run as part of his two hit night. Hunter Wood only went 5.0 innings, but he was brilliant. In those five innings, he only allowed one hit while walking one and striking out twelve.
Rookie GCL Rays (24-31)
The GCL Rays defeated the GCL O's 5-1 in Damion Carroll's season debut. Carroll went only one perfect inning and was relieved by Freddy Alvarez, who pitched the next four scoreless. Kean Wong went 3-4 while Alexander Simon went 2-3 with a triple.
Star of the Day: Yoel Araujo and Hunter Wood starred for Princeton.
Goat of the Day: The Charlotte offense has been strong of late, but they couldn't get anything going on Friday.
