Reno Aces 0, Salt Lake Bees 11: Braden Shipley and the Aces offense struggled mightily in the game. The former 1st round pick gave up 6 runs in 2 2⁄3 innings, putting the Aces in a 6-0 hole. Unfortunately, the Aces were unable to get the bats going.
Jackson Generals 0, Birmingham Barons 3: Taylor Clarke was a bit wild, but limited the damage to 2 runs. Unfortunately, the Generals offense couldn’t string together hits as the team went 0 for 7 with RISP and stranded 8. In a close game, those missed opportunities killed them.
Visalia Rawhide Off Day
Kane County Cougars 1, Lake County Captains 6: The Cougars again fell victim of the lack of offense bug. They were able to scratch across a run on a Manny Jefferson RBI triple, but that was it offensively. The pitching wasn’t very strong as each pitcher that came into the game allowed at least 1 run.
Hillsboro Hops 6, Vancouver Indians 0: The Hops completed a 5-game sweep of the Canadians, handing Vancouver a shutout loss like Boston in 2011. Surprisingly, the offense didn’t come from the trio of Pavin Smith, Drew Ellis, and Daulton Varsho. Instead, the big spark plug in the offense came from a Day 2 pick and a late one in Camden Duzenack. The Hops scored a pair of runs each in the first three innings of the game and cruised from there. Tyler Keele pitched 5 shutout innings and the bullpen took care of the rest.
