6/2: The Rundown

Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees 4, Durham Bulls 3
Box | Recap
Notes: Durham fell to 29-23... Aneury Rodriguez took the loss, struggling with his control most of the night. He walked three in the 1st inning but worked out trouble, something he couldn't do in a 4-run 4th inning... Jason Cromer pitched three scoreless innings in relief... Desmond Jennings went 0-3. He was hit by a pitch and stole a base... Justin Ruggiano had 2 hits and 4 stolen bases...
The Leftovers: Weirdly, Ruggiano has hit righties well but struggled against lefties this year. The OPS split, entering today, was .891 against .556...

Mississippi Braves 5, Montgomery Biscuits 2
Box | Recap
Notes: Montgomery fell to 27-23...
The Leftovers:

Charlotte Stone Crabs 4, Daytona Cubs 1
Box | Recap
Notes: Charlotte improved to 27-23... Joseph Cruz threw 6 strong innings to get the win. He allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5... Sergio Espinosa threw 1.2 scoreless innings, and Josh Satow finished it off for the save... Leslie Anderson went 3-5 including a 3-run home run... Tim Beckham was 1-4 with a walk and an RBI...
The Leftovers: It's only been three outings, but Sergio Espinosa looks like he has some nice action on his pitches, or maybe throws a nice sinker. He's recorded 23 outs (7.2 innings). 16 have been groundouts and 5 have been strikeouts...

Bowling Green Hot Rods 7, Clinton LumberKings 2
Box | Recap
Notes: Bowling Green improved to 22-30... Kyle Lobstein had his strongest start of the year, taking a no-hitter into the 7th inning and finishing with a run allowed on 2 hits in 6+ innings. He walked 2 and struck out 5... Ryan Wiegand was the offensive star, blasting 2 home runs and driving in 5... Ty Morrison went 3-4 with a double while Kyle Spraker and Robi Estrada had two hits apiece...
The Leftovers: Morrison has 9 hits in his last 6 games


  1. Any reaon why DJ was in the 7 spot the last few games?

  2. Cork at RaysIndex has speculated it may be to get him used to that role for an eventual call-up, but I think it was more to just shake things up to try to get Jennings out of his slump.
