RED WINGS REPORT
Rochester 2, Lehigh Valley 4 (10 innings)
Through nine innings, this was a 1-1 game. Then came extra frames when the Red Wings gave up three runs and were only able to counter with one run in the bottom of the inning. The Red Wings finish their season with a record of 64-76.
Chase De Jong gave up one run on four hits and a walk through the first five innings. He struck out seven. John Curtiss struck out two in his inning. Ryan Eades struck out three batters over his two scoreless innings. Ryan Harper pitched a scoreless ninth inning, but he gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits in the tenth frame. He struck out two. Luke Bard came on and got the final out.
Kennys Vargas likely played his final game in the Twins organization as he can become a free agent at season’s end. He went 2-for-3 with a walk and his 22nd and 23rd doubles of the year. A night after his walk off homer, Zander Wiel added his first AAA triple. Victor Tademo made his first Red Wings appearance and had a single.
Chattanooga 4, Jackson 2
Sean Poppen put together another really solid, quality start, but he gets another no decision because he left the game with the Lookouts down 2-0.
Down 2-0 going into the eighth inning, Jimmy Kerrigan’s sixth home run got the Lookouts on the scoreboard. In the top of the ninth, Luis Arraez came up with the bases loaded and delivered a two-run single to give the team a lead. Kerrigan came back up and provided a little insurance with a sacrifice fly.
Mitchell Kranson went 2-for-3 including his ninth double in the ninth inning. Arraez went 2-for-4.
Poppen gave up two runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out five. Tyler Jay came on to get the final two outs of the seventh inning and worked a perfect eighth inning as well. Devin Smeltzer gave up a hit, but he struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning for his fourth save.
The Miracle begin their Florida State League playoff series on Tuesday night.
Cedar Rapids 2, Beloit 3
This game was scheduled for 2:00 central time. At 8:20 p.m., the game began in Beloit after a far-too-long rain delay that was necessitated by the Snappers needing a win to make the playoffs.
Tyler Watson started for the Kernels. The southpaw had a Quality Start. Despite giving up nine hits, he gave up just three runs over six innings. He struck out seven batters without a walk. Calvin Faucher threw a scoreless inning as well. Ricky Ramirez struck out two in a perfect eighth inning.
The Kernels took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning. Jacob Pearson doubled and then scored on a single from Trey Cabbage. Trevor Larnach went 2-for-4. Following his double, the Twins top 2017 pick scored on a Michael Helman single.
These two teams will begin a playoff series on Wednesday, also in Beloit.
The E-Twins begin the Appalachian League championship series on Tuesday.
