Triple-A Albuquerque (23-33)
Double-A New Britain (32-22)
The Rock Cats scored three in the sixth and two in the seventh to secure the win yesterday. They did not do so in overly dramatic fashion. Six of the seven Rock Cats hits were singles, including hits from Trevor Story and Tommy Murphy. The team's only extra base hit came courtesy of Jayson Langels, who knocked in a run with an RBI triple.
On the mound, Ryan Carpenter pitched seven strong innings. He allowed two runs on four hits and struck out a batter an inning. Hard throwing right-hander Austin House pitched the ninth for a save, although he did allow three hits and a run while doing so.
High-A Modesto (26-29)
This one was not much of a contest. Stockton took the lead in the first with a run, but the Nuts tied it in the bottom half of the frame. But then Stockton scored four more in the top of the second and never looked back. Johendi Jiminian took the brunt of it. In 4.2 innings, Jiminian gave up six hits and walked seven batters, which contributed to the nine runs he allowed. Sam Moll fared better, although he didn't impress either, as he gave up a hit, two runs, and walked two in two innings.
The offensive bright spots were purely future oriented: PuRPs Raimel Tapia and Ryan McMahon both collected two hits.
Single-A Asheville (23-33)
In his longest outing of the year, Ryan Castellani pitched five fairly strong innings. He allowed just three hits, one a solo home run. Charleston got its other run off him due to a Wes Rogers fielding error in the first inning. Castellani struck out four and walked two in his five innings.
While Rogers gave a run away on defense, he was also responsible for the runs Asheville scored. His two RBI triple in the fourth inning was all the Tourists would get on the day.
Dominican Summer League (3-4)
Not all DSL Rockies games are 20 run affairs. The DSL Rockies defeated the DSL Dodgers in a pitchers duel that saw the teams combine for just six hits. Jose Rodriguez scored the lone run of the game, and that came courtesy of a wild pitch.
Starting pitcher Alejandro Requena pitched six excellent innings for the DSL Rockies. He gave up two hits, struck out five, and didn't walk a batter.
