Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 8-15 vs. Richmond Flying Squirrels

LF Ramon Flores 1-6, 2 K
2B Jose Pirela 3-5, 3B, RBI
RF Tyler Austin 2-5, HR, 2 RBI, K - second homer of the season

Shaeffer Hall 3.1 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 0 BB, WP
Josh Romanski 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Rondon was plenty bad all on his own, but the Thunder defense has done nothing to help out their pitchers for most of this season. Their fielding has been a mess. Caleb Cotham starts for Trenton today at 2:05 pm.

High-A Tampa Yankees: W 9-8 (11 innings) vs. Clearwater Threshers

CF Mason Williams 0-6, RBI
2B Rob Refsnyder 2-2, RBI, 4 BB, 2 SB - 14 for his last 35 (.400)
C Gary Sanchez 2-5, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K - fifth home run of the season
1B Fu-Lin Kuo 0-5, BB, 2 K
3B Anderson Feliz 1-6, 3B, RBI, 2 K, E5 - throwing error, seventh of the season
SS Dan Fiorito 1-3, 3 BB, K, E6 - fielding error, third of the season
DH Francisco Arcia 4-6, RBI

Mikey O'Brien 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K - six groundouts, one flyout

Zach Arneson 0.2 IP, 4 H, 5 R/2 ER, 2 BB, K
Joel De La Cruz 3.1 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Tampa nearly lost this one when Arneson and shaky defense allowed the Threshers to rally for five runs in the eighth inning, but a Mason Williams walk-off sac fly put them over the top in the eleventh inning to win it. Scottie Allen pitches for the Yankees today at 4:05 pm.

Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 2-3 vs. Delmarva Shorebirds

RF Jake Cave 1-4
SS Cito Culver 0-4, K
1B Greg Bird 2-2, 2 BB, SB - 12 for his last 34 (.353)

DH Yeicok Calderon 1-4, 2 RBI, K
CF Taylor Dugas 0-4, K
LF Kelvin De Leon 0-4, K
C Wes Wilson 0-3, BB, 2 K
2B Claudio Custodio 1-3, SB, E4 - fielding error, fourth of the season

Gabriel Encinas 3.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, HB - given up three ER in 32.1 innings this season
Ben Paullus 3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K - two groundouts, one flyout
Taylor Garrison 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Not much to say about this one. Charleston rallied to tie it in the sixth inning, but it was given right back by Paullus in the seventh. The RiverDogs take on the Shorebirds again today at 2:05 pm.
