SS Addison Maruszak 0-4

Dellin Betances 5 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 4 BB, 3 K - seven groundouts, two flyouts
Sam Demel 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R/0 ER, BB, K

Betances may have had a shot at the no-hitter if his pitch count hadn't reached 90 after five innings, but the offense easily took care of the Braves, out-hitting them 10-2.

Game Two:

2B Corban Joseph 1-3, BB - 8 for his last 38 (.211)

Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 1-5 vs. Richmond Flying Squirrels

LF Ramon Flores 0-4
2B Jose Pirela 0-4
DH Tyler Austin 2-4, 3B, RBI, K - 9 for his last 33 (.273)
1B Kyle Roller 0-4, 2 K

Caleb Cotham 2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, K - rumored to be pulled mid-game because of a promotion

Danny Burawa 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, K
Tom Kahnle 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

It was a little bizarre that Cotham was pulled after two scoreless innings, but Thunder beat writer Josh Norris tweeted that it sounded like he was being promoted. Why, and who he is going to replace, I couldn't tell you. In this game, the offense failed to do much of anything, including capitalizing on three Richmond errors. Matt Tracy starts for Trenton today at 7:05 pm.

High-A Tampa Yankees: W 8-2 vs. Fort Myers Miracle

Fred Lewis 2 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Matt Daley 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 K

Tampa managed to take advantage of five Miracle errors, in addition to doubling them up in the hit column, by putting up back to back three-run innings in the seventh and eighth. The Yankees take on the Miracle again today at 7:05 pm.

A four-run sixth inning by the Shorebirds put this one out of reach for Charleston. These two teams face off again today at 7:05 pm.
