After the excitement of last Saturday when Blake Snell, Taylor Guerrieri and Brent Honeywell pitched on the same day, we're down to just Snell today.
Triple-A Durham Bulls (26-23)
Everett Teaford's struggles continued in Durham's 8-2 loss to Rochester. It took just four batters for the Red Wings to take a 2-0 lead in the first inning, and Teaford allowed four two-out runs in the fourth inning. In the bottom half of the inning, J.P. Arencibia singled home a run, and Rochester conceded a second run to turn a double play against Richie Shaffer.
Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (21-26)
A 4-1 lead evaporated quickly in Montgomery's 12-4 loss to Jackson. Hector Guevara cleared the bases with a double in the fourth, but the Generals responded with nine unanswered runs to close out the game. Jaime Schultz was hammered for six runs on six hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings, and Guevara's eighth-inning error cost Bryce Stowell four unearned runs.
Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (32-14)
With another great start, Jacob Faria pulled back into a tie for most wins in professional baseball with eight in Charlotte's 3-2 win over Brevard County. He struck out six and scattered just four hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings before the Manatees got two against Brad Schreiber in the ninth. The Stone Crabs struck first in the fourth with a Pat Blair RBI single and Yoel Araujo sacrifice fly, but Jake Bauers' eighth inning single to score Willy Adames proved crucial.
Class A Bowling Green Hot Rods (27-20)
A late lead did not hold up in Bowling Green's 6-3 loss to Lansing. In a 2-2 game, Mac James plated the go-ahead run with one out in the eighth, but the Hot Rods failed to cash in further with two runners on base. Damion Carroll started the ninth after pitching the eighth, but the Lugnuts scored three runs before he could even record an out. They added one more later in the inning, and the Hot Rods went down 1-2-3 in the bottom half of the inning to end the game. Starter Chris Pike allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings.
