Triple-A Reno 0 @ Memphis 6. The Aces out-hit the Grizzlies 11-9, but were not able to translate that into any runs, as all the hits were singles, and they went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. LF Cesar Puello had four hits, 3B Juniel Querecuto got two knocks, and C Michael Perez a hit and Reno’s only walk. Alex Young had a (just) quality start, going six innings and allowing three runs on five hits, with no walks and a pair of strikeouts. Albert Suarez allowed the other three runs in his three innings of relief.
Double-A Jackson 10 @ Mobile 9. After a 1.86 ERA in his two rehab starts, Shelby Miller had a rough outing, allowing five in the first and three in the second. He posted a zero in the third, for a final line of eight earned runs over three IP, on nine hits and two walks, with four K’s. We’ll see whether further tuning is needed. This was a slugfest early, Jackson leading 9-8 after four, before Yuhei Nakaushiro settled things down with six K’s across three hitless innings. Brad Goldberg allowed a lead-off HR in the ninth, then stranded the tying runner on third with consecutive K’s for his first save. CF Daniel Robertson hit two HR and also tripled, while 1B Kevin Medrano and LF Jamie Westbrook also had three-hit games
High-A Visalia 4 @ Stockton 5. The Rawhide were 4-0 down after five innings, but came back, tying things up Ryan Grotjohn’s three-run homer in the seventh. But Tommy Eveld let the Ports walk it off with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Tyler Keele lasted only four innings, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks with four K’s. DH Luis Lara got three hits and a walk, while CF Marcus Wilson, doubled, singled and walked. SS Camden Duzenack hit his fourth HR.
A-ball Kane County 1/3 @ Clinton 9/4. The Cougars dropped both ends of the 7-inning double-header. They were pummeled 9-1 in the opener, mostly due to a seven-run fourth off Jhoan Duran and Carlos Bustamante, and managed only three hits. They did a little better in the nightcap, but still went down 4-3. C Renae Martinez doubled and homered, driving in all three Cougars runs, and improved his average to .328. Jake Winston took the loss, scattering seven hits and two walks across 4.1 innings, with one K and four earned runs allowed.
