Scores and Highlights from 4/10

Charlotte Knight 5, Durham Bulls 0
The Bulls offense struggled to get anything going on Tuesday night as they were shut-out 5-0. The Bulls managed just four hits in the game but could not convert a bases loaded situation in the seventh as they took the loss. Alex Cobb was charged with the loss.

Montgomery Biscuits 7, Mississippi Braves 3
The Biscuits snapped their three game losing streak by opening the series against the Braves with a win. The Biscuits grabbed the lead in the fourth and never looked back. Mark Thomas led the offense by reaching base three times on the night including a triple to lead off the seventh. In addition to the triple by Thomas, the Biscuits offense produced 4 doubles. Shane Dyer dominated in his start, retiring the first nine hitters he faced to earn the win.

St. Lucie Mets 6, Charlotte Stone Crabs 2
The Stone Crabs fell from the top spot in the division following their second straight loss to St. Lucie. The Stone Crabs were held scoreless until the eighth inning when they pushed across a pair of runs in the final two frames of the contest. Both runs of the night were attributed to Luke Bailey. Bailey tripled and later scored in the eighth then drove home a run in the ninth on a sac fly. Bailey was also the only Stone Crabs to pick up multiple hits by going 2 for 4. Wilking Rodriguez suffered the loss for the Stone Crabs.

West Michigan White Caps 4, Bowling Green Hot Rods 3
The Hot Rods broke their scoreless streak by scoring in the second inning but that wasn't enough to keep them from losing their third straight game. Ryan Brett led off the inning with a triple and then scored to end the Hot Rods streak of 15 consecutive scoreless innings. But the Hot Rods quickly relinquished the lead in the bottom of the first and trailed until a two run rally in the top of the ninth to tie the game. However the White Caps struck in the bottom of the ninth to earn the walk-off win and hand the Hot Rods the loss. Joel Caminero drove home 2 of the Hot Rods 3 runs of the game. Stayton Thomas was charged with the loss and has fallen to 0-2 on the season.


  1. I was at the Bowling Green game again last night. Ryan Brett drilled the first pitch and showed off his speed getting to third easily. Kes Carter showed good speed legging out a couple of base hits that weren't particularly hard hits. Vettleson's arm looked strong on the two put outs, the put out at home was especially impressive, it was a straight throw from the outfield that never hit the ground.
    I liked watching the combination of Hager and Brett, they are both quick, athletic, and have a ton of energy.
    Gomez looked a little wild in the first but seemed to settle in as the game went on.

    1. Didn't Vettleson throw out the same guy twice, once at home and also at second?

    2. I don't remember for certain. It seems like it was two different players. Both tried to advance on pop outs. I think he threw out Dean Green at home, I don't remember who the other runner was. I just got back from the Wednesday day game and can send you a few pics.

    3. Actually now that I think about it it probably was Green both times. He had a couple of hits and is a pretty slow runner.

  2. Yes it was green. Green didn't challenge vettleson today nor the rest of the team. They respect his arm now:)
