Scores and Highlights from 6/6

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees 9, Durham Bulls 4
For the second night in a row, the Bulls struggled to contain the Yankees offense as they fell 9-4 on Wednesday night. The Bulls found themselves down 3-0 by the end of the third and never recovered. For the second consecutive night, Henry Wrigley paced the offense, going 3 for 4 with a double, homer, 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored to extend his hitting streak to five games. Stephen Vogt tripled in the fourth inning to extend his hitting streak to seven games. Lance Pendleton suffered the loss.

Tennessee Smokies 3, Montgomery Biscuits 2 
The Biscuits late rally fell short as they lost the rubber match against the Smokies. The Smokies jumped out to a 3-0 lead before the Biscuits scored their first run in the seventh. The Biscuits added another run in the home half on the ninth, but they could not find a third as they suffered the loss. Tyler Bortnick was 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI. Omar Luna was 2 for 5 with an RBI. Alex Colome suffered the loss. Marquis Fleming provided 2 1/3 no-hit innings of relief while Kirby Yates chipped in with a perfect ninth, striking out all three hitters.

Charlotte Stone Crabs 4, Lakeland Flying Tigers 1 (Game One)
The Stone Crabs waited out a brief rain delay before heading out on the field to put an end to the recent skid by defeating the Flying Tigers in game one of the doubleheader. The Stone Crabs offense backed a stellar outing by starter Enny Romero who five scoreless innings before allowing a run. While Romero was keeping the runs off the board, the offense was doing their part by putting runs on the board. Riccio Torrez, Mikie Mahtook and Hector Guevara each plated a run. Romero allowed just one run while striking out 6 enroute to the win. Chris Rearick picked up the save.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 10, Charlotte Stone Crabs 3 (Game Two) 
The Stone Crabs dropped the second game of the doubleheader by the score of 10-3 to split the twin bill. The Stone Crabs led of the game by scoring in the first inning to take an early lead. But the lead wouldn't last long as the Flying Tigers answered with four runs in the bottom of the first. The Stone Crabs would never fully match the offense of their opponent as they suffered the loss. The Stone Crabs managed just six hits spread amongst six hitters. Derek Dietrich had a triple and Phil Wunderlich a double. Victor Mateo was charged with the loss.

Bowling Green Hot Rods 4, Lansing Lugnuts 4 (Suspended/11th Inning)
The Hot Rods and Lugnuts game on Wednesday night was suspended in the eleventh inning due to rain. The score was tied 4-4 when the decision was made to halt play. The Hot Rods were trailing 3-1 in heading into the sixth when Jake Hager went deep to pull the Hot Rods to within a run of the lead. The Hot Rods took a brief lead by scoring twice in the seventh but the Lugnuts countered to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh. The game would remain tied through regulation and into extra innings when the skies opened up and the game was suspended. Play will resume as part of a doubleheader on Thursday.

VSL Phillies 3, VSL Rays 2
The Rays went twelve innings but could not push across the winning run as they fell to the Phillies. The Rays jumped out an early 2-0 lead in the second inning. They then surrendered a run in the second and another in the third to tie the game. That's when the pitchers took control of the tempo and exchanged eight straight scoreless inning before the Phillies scored the winning run in the bottom of the twelfth. Eduardo Medina was charged with the loss.

DSL Royals 15, DSL Rays 7
The DSL Rays are still searching for their first win of the season as they fell to the Royals 15-7. The Rays trailed early and never recovered as they dropped to 0-4 on the season. Ismael Aguero was 3 for 4 with a double and 3 RBI's. Cristian Toribio was 2 for 3 with a double. Luis Marte was 2 for 4 with a 2 run homer. Wilmer Hernandez took the loss.


  1. I am starting to get concerned with Lucas Bailey defensively. He already has 8 errors and has barely played. He has also had a hard time throwing runners out.

    Does he have any experience playing any other postions?

  2. So the Yankees beat us in AAA as well. So disgusting.

  3. Derek Dietrich playing CF tonight (6/11) for Charlotte, Mikie Mahtook at 1B, Steve Tinoco at C, Alejandro Torres at 3B, that is all weird. Either there is a mistake in the boxscore, or they are trying to give Dietrich and Mahtook experience at new positions. It isn't explained by injuries, because they could easily have Torres at C, Tinoco at 1B, Mahtook in CF, and Dietrich in the infield.
