Trenton managed to keep the game close after Ramirez lasted only an inning and two-thirds, mainly thanks to a three-run eighth inning. A scuffling Tyler Austin had a chance in the ninth inning, but his struggles continued. Nik Turley pitches for the Thunder today at 6:35 pm.

High-A Tampa Yankees: L 4-12 vs. Bradenton Marauders

CF Mason Williams 0-4, BB, K - 7 for his last 40 (.175)
DH Angelo Gumbs 3-4, 2 2B, BB
2B Rob Refsnyder 0-3, 2 BB
C Gary Sanchez 2-5, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K - eighth homer of the season
LF Ben Gamel 1-4, RBI, BB, K

Zach Arneson 1.1 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, HB
Manny Barreda 0.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R/0 ER, BB, K

A disaster, to put it simply. The starter failed and a fail in the bullpen compounded that. At least there are Sanchez dingers to take the sting off. Bryan Mitchell starts for Tampa today at 6:30 pm.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: W 4-2 vs. Savannah Sand Gnats

CF Jake Cave 1-4, BB, K - 13 for his last 44 (.295)

1B Greg Bird 2-5, K

RF Yeicok Calderon 1-4, 2B, BB, 2 K
LF Taylor Dugas 2-4, RBI, HBP
DH Kelvin De Leon 1-5, RBI
2B Claudio Custodio 1-4, SB - 7 for his last 37 (.189)

Evan Rutckyj 4 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, HB - three groundouts, one flyout
Dietrich Enns 3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K - 43 strikeouts in 25.1 IP
Phil Wetherell 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 BB
Ben Paullus 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, HB

If the RiverDogs lost this game, they'd have fallen to second place in the South Atlantic League standings. DBJ has kept his streak of hot hitting going and the RiverDogs managed to pull off the win to stay in first. Charleston starts a series with the Greenville Drive tomorrow after taking three of four from them last weekend.
