Charleston got out to a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning before coughing up the lead by allowing a three-run seventh to the Crawdads. A DBJ homer in the bottom of the ninth inning pulled them one run closer to tying the game again, but the rally fell short. Dan Camarena starts for the RiverDogs tonight at 7:05 pm.

The Renegades got out to a 4-0 lead before the Yankees ever came to bat, but Staten Island put themselves on top with a big six-run inning of their own in the third. Unfortunately, the pitchers gave it right back by allowing a five-run inning to Hudson Valley in the fourth inning before the game was called in the seventh due to rain. Staten Island takes on the Aberdeen Ironbirds tonight at 7:05 pm.
Notes from the Gulf Coast League:
GCL Yankees 1 beat the GCL Blue Jays 9-0 with three multi-run innings in their first four of the game. Tyler Wade picked up a single and worked two walks, Chris Breen had two singles, Kevin Cornelius singled and drove in a run in addition to walking twice. Jordan Barnes was 0-4 with a strikeout. Luis Severino, Daury Aquino, and Eric Ruth combined for the shutout.
GCL Yankees 2 rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to beat the GCL Astros 5-4 in first round pick Eric Jagielo's debut. Jagielo was 0-2 with a pair of strikeouts before he was removed from the game, likely to not push his newly-recovered hamstring too far on his first day back. Adonis Garcia singled in a run, Nathan Mikolas homered and drove in two in his only at-bat of the day, Renzo Martini was 0-3 with a strikeout, and Jorge Alcantara was 2-4 with a double. Alex Polanco pitched one inning, walking one and striking out another. Rich Mascheri picked up the two-inning save while racking up four strikeouts.
