Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple A)
Game postponed – Rain
Trenton Thunder (Double A)
Thairo Estrada, Mike Ford, Miguel Andujar and Jake Cave led the Thunder offense by recording multi-hit games in Trenton’s 6-0 victory over the Erie SeaWolves in game one of a doubleheader. Thairo Estrada set the tone as the leadoff hitter by going 3 for 4 with a run scored. First basemen Mike Ford collected two doubles, two runs scored, and two runs batted in during the seven-inning contest. Miguel Andujar doubled in the sixth inning, while Jake Cave homered in the top half of the second. Ronald Hererra gave up just four scattered hits over six innings. He walked none and struck out four. J.P. Feyereisen came in and pitched a perfect inning of relief, striking out all three batters that he faced.
Erie walked off against the Thunder in game two. After a shaky outing by Nestor Cortes, Matt Wotherspoon and Colten Brewer pitched a combined 2.2 innings of scoreless relief before Cale Coshow entered the game and blew his third save of the season. Offensively the one, two and three hitters in Trenton’s lineup accounted for five of the team’s seven hits and the majority of the club’s four runs. Jake Cave led-off and went 2 for 5 with two doubles and a run scored. Gleyber Torres batted second and went 2 for 5 with a double and run scored. Miguel Andujar batted third and responded by hitting a double and collecting two RBI’s.
Tampa Yankees (Single A Advanced)
Tampa’s three run sixth inning was enough for the team to earn a 4-3 victory over the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Sunday afternoon. The Yankees got off to a great start as Jorge Mateo led-off by hitting a double. He would later come around to score on a Chris Gittens two out single. The other three runs were accounted for in the sixth by a Wes Wilson sacrifice fly, Jorge Mateo RBI double, who would later score on an errant throw by Charlotte reliever Drew Smith on a stolen third base.
Charleston RiverDogs (Single A)
A four run fifth inning helped propel Charleston to a 7-5 victory over the Delmarva Shorebirds. Estevan Florial jump-started the RiverDogs offense by leading off the bottom of the first inning with a home run. In the fourth, following a Carlos Vidal bunt single, and Leonardo Molina walk, Florial collected an RBI as he singled to right field. Oswaldo Cabrera then laced a three-run home run over the left field wall. In the bottom of the eighth, Charleston scored their final two runs on a missed catch error and a Cabrera sacrifice fly. Adonis Rosa started the game for the RiverDogs, he pitched five innings permitted nine hits (two home runs), four runs (three earned) and a walk. Anyelo Gomez closed out the game, striking out three of the four batters he faced and picked up his seventh save of the season.
