Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (76-64)
Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (84-55)
Bowling Green's season is over.
Short-Season Hudson Valley Renegades (47-27)
Hudson Valley's offense no-showed in a 3-0 Game 1 to State College. The Renegades did not get their first hit until Angel Perez doubled in the fifth, and that would be the only inning they even threatened with more than one runner on base. Despite walking four batters, starter Noel Rodriguez finished with five scoreless innings. The Spikes scored all three of their runs against J.D. Busfield, who allowed seven hits in 1 1/3 innings.
