Indianapolis Indians 1, St. Paul Saints 16
Hunter Owen's tenth home run of the year, a solo shot, was one of three hits on the night for the Indians and the only one that produced a run.
Steven Wright started the game, but failed to register an out, allowed three hits, two walks and five earned runs. Coming in relief, Joe Jacques didn't fare too much better, allowing eight earned runs in 1 2/3 innings.
Altoona Curve 4, Harrisburg Senators 3
Josh Bissonette hit his first home run of the season, a three-run shot that did the majority of the damage for the Curve. Ji-Hwan Bae added a double and Cal Mitchell went 2-for-3 with his sixth stolen base of the game. Trey McGough pitched six innings, struck out four while allowing three earned runs.
Greensboro Grasshoppers 8, Winston-Salem Dash 0
Home runs controlled the day for the Grasshoppers, as they slugged four on the day. Jared Triolo (9), Matt Gorski (11), Lolo Sanchez (10) and Grant Koch (7) all went deep for Greensboro as they shutout the Dash. For Triolo, his home run was a grand slam and it also gave him 50 RBIs on the season. Grant Ford (6 IP, 9 K) and Colin Selby (3 IP, 4 K) combined to pitch the shutout.
Bradenton Marauders 6, Dunedin Blue Jays 11
Nick Garcia lasted only 2 1/3 innings, allowing four earned runs and six hits while striking out three batters. The Marauders also committed three errors on the day, helping the Blue Jays offense.
Darial Lopez went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs driven in with Hudson Head and Maikol Escotto each went 2-for-5 on the day. Escotto hit his sixth home run of the year, while Head also doubled.
