Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders: W 8-7 vs. Lehigh Valley IronPigs (10 innings)
It took 10 innings for the RailRiders to scratch out a win on Saturday, but Chris Parmelee's second homer of the season sent them home happy. His big walk-off hit was one of three for Parmelee in the game. Gary Sanchez and Cesar Puello also had big days with three hits apiece. All of Sanchez's hits went for extra bases with two doubles and his fifth home run of the year. Rob Refsnyder also had a multi-hit game with a double.
Brady Lail got a start after being bumped up from Double-A. He surrendered four runs and walked three in 3.2 innings. Tyler Olsen didn't fare much better out of the bullpen, giving up three runs on three hits in 3.1 innings. Conor Mullee was able to hold the IronPigs scoreless for three innings to close out the game.
Double-A Trenton Thunder: L 1-3 vs. Harrisburg Senators
It was a rough day for the Thunder who committed three errors and scored only one run in a loss to Harrisburg. Jake Cave was the star of the offense with three hits, two of which went for doubles, and driving in the team's only run. Cito Culver also had a multi-hit game, but he was responsible for one of the team's errors. Dan Fiorito and Jose Rosario committed the other two.
Cale Coshow walked five batters and gave up three runs in 4.1 innings, but he did manage to strike out seven batters. Alex Smith and Matt Tracy worked scoreless innings out of the bullpen. Unfortunately, that didn't matter because the offense failed to show up.
Jorge Mateo led the T-Yanks to victory with three hits including a triple and his fourth home run of 2016, an inside-the-parker. He drove in half the team's runs. Miguel Andujar, Abiatal Avelino, and Vince Conde were the only other members of the offense to pick up hits.
Starter Chance Adams was fantastic, pitching six shutout innings and allowing only three hits. He walked only one batter and struck out eight. The trio of Philip Walby, Caleb Frare, and James Reeves pitched one inning each, and they managed to hold the Threshers scoreless.
Low-A Charleston RiverDogs: L 3-5 vs. Hickory Crawdads
Two rough innings spoiled things for the RiverDogs on Saturday. Angel Aguilar led the way offensively with three hits including a double and his third home run of the year. Jeff Hendrix and Hoy Jun Park each doubled for their one hit of the day. Leonardo Molina made his 2016 debut in the game, but went hitless. He did work a walk, however.
Simon De la Rosa surrendered two hits in four innings, walking three and striking out four. Cody Carroll also struggled, getting tagged for three runs in four innings out of the bullpen. On the bright side, Travis Hissong continued his strong season with a scoreless inning of relief, dropping his ERA to 0.54.
