Mark Montgomery 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 3 K - 19 of 32 pitches for strikes
Cody Eppley 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 K

A Corban Joseph run in the first inning stood up over all nine innings as the RailRiders shut out the Red Wings for their third straight victory, thanks to impressive pitching by Bootcheck, Montgomery, and Eppley. Graham Stoneburner gets the start for Scranton today at 7:05 pm.

Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 1-5 vs. Akron Aeros

Ramon Flores 2-4, 2B - 13 for his last 40 (.325)
Jose Pirela 0-4, 2 K
Tyler Austin 0-4, 2 K - 11 for his last 43, did have two outfield assists
JR Murphy 1-3, BB, PB
Rob Segedin 1-4, RBI, 2 K, 2 E5 - both throwing errors
Neil Medchill 0-4, 4 K - welp
Casey Stevenson 0-3, 2 K - batting .316

Jeremy Bleich 4 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K - six groundouts, two flyouts
Shaeffer Hall 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER - four pitch inning

Shaky defense behind Nuding cost the Thunder their win streak and tonight's game in which the offense failed to do much against Aeros starter T.J. House. Francisco Rondon gets the start today at 10:35 am.

High-A Tampa Yankees: L 6-8 vs. Dunedin Blue Jays

Mason Williams 2-5, 2 K - 12 for his last 40
Carmen Angelini 0-4, BB, 2 K
Ben Gamel 1-5, 2 K - batting .354

John Brebbia 2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, BB, K
Manuel Barreda 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, BB, 2 K

When they score runs, the pitching doesn't come through. The Tampa Yankees are really struggling right now, having lost eight of their last 10 games. Shane Greene gets the start and tries to change that today at 7 pm.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 0-3 vs. Rome Braves

Taylor Dugas 0-4
Cito Culver 0-4, 2 K

Philip Wetherell 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 3 K - two groundouts, three flyouts

Can't win if you don't score and the RiverDogs could only muster two hits against Braves' pitchers last night. Gabriel Encinas gets the start today at 11:05 am at The Joe.
