AA: Amarillo Sod Poodles 5, Frisco RoughRiders 4; 59-61
For the third time this season, Blake Walston went up against Jack Leiter. Walston got knocked around a bit with 7 hits and 4 runs in 6 2⁄3 innings, but most of the damage came in the first as Walston was able to salvage enough from his start to keep Amarillo in the game. Tim Tawa’s 2-run double tied the game at 4-4 in the 8th and Tristin English hit a walk-off single in the 9th. Jordan Lawlar went 0-for-5 in the game, but drove home a run in the 3rd on a groundout.
High-A: Hillsboro Hops 5, Tri-City Dust Devils 4; 54-65
Luke Albright’s quality start put Hillsboro in good shape, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts in 5 innings. Conor Grammes couldn’t hold a 3-2 lead, allowing a run in the 6th and 8th inning. Grammes coughed up 3 hits and hit a batter in 2 2⁄3 innings. The Hops put together a 2-out rally in the 9th inning. A.J. Vukovich singled on a ground ball back to the pitcher then stole second. Neyfy Castillo tied the game with a single before stealing second himself. That set up Adrian Del Castillo for an opportunity to win it with a liner to the left-center gap to score Castillo. Del Castillo finished with 3 hits and 2 RBI in the win.
Low-A: Visalia Rawhide 2, Lake Elsinore 10; 40-81
Spencer Giesting took the start and allowed 1 run on 2 hits, 2 walks, and 1 strikeout in 2 2⁄3 innings. The bad news is the bullpen behind him had a pair of rough innings. Peniel Otano gave up a 4-spot in the 6th and Liu Fuenmayor gave up 5 runs in the 8th. The Visalia lineup didn’t do much with only 6 singles and a walk.
