RED WINGS REPORT
Rochester 2, Pawtuckett 1
W: Myles Jaye (7.0 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K)
SV: Nick Anderson (1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K)
Multi-hit games: Wynston Sawyer, Taylor Featherston
Miguel Sano was 0-for-2 with two walks and a strikeout in the first appearance of his rehab assignment. He was the designated hitter.
Rochester scored both of its runs in the fourth inning. Jermaine Curtis got things going by getting hit by a pitch with one out. Catcher Wynston Sawyer added a two-out single before Taylor Featherston drove them both home with a triple.
That’s all the offense the Red Wings would need thanks in large part to Myles Jaye. He held Pawtuckett to one hit, a solo home run, over seven innings of work. Jaye is on a roll, giving up just three earned runs on 13 hits over his last 18 innings pitched.
Gabriel Moya worked a scoreless eighth before Nick Anderson struck out the side in the ninth for his second save.
Old friend Justin Haley pitched a good game for the PawSox, striking out six batters over six innings of work, but was saddled with the loss. Dustin Pedroia, on a rehab assignment of his own, was held hitless in three plate appearances by the Red Wings’ pitching staff.
Biloxi 3, Chattanooga 2 (10 innings)
SP: Omar Bencomo (7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K)
Multi-hit games: Zander Wiel, Chris Paul, Tanner English
This one was tied at 1-1 heading into extra innings and Tanner English cashed in the Lookouts’ “bonus runner” in the 10th to take the lead. Tyler Jay came in to try and pick up the save in the bottom of the inning. Things did not go well.
The inning started, with the runner already on second of course, with an infield single. That was followed by another single that scored the tying run. With runners on first and second with no outs, the next batter bunted. Brian Navarreto committed a throwing error that allowed the game-winning run to score. Ouch.
Omar Bencomo pitched a gem (see above) and Cody Stashak added two perfect innings to go with three strikeouts. Nick Gordon had a single, a walk and stole his sixth base.
Fort Myers 2, St. Lucie 0 (Suspended in the top of the third inning)
They tried to get this one in, but the Florida rain had other ideas. The start of this contest was delayed more than 40 minutes and the game ended up being suspended in the top of the third inning due to rain. They’ll pick up where they left off tomorrow afternoon.
Cedar Rapids 6, Clinton 4
W: Jovani Moran (2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K)
SP: Bryan Sammons (4.2 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K)
Multi-hit games: Akil Baddoo, Jordan Gore, Alex Kirilloff, Ben Rodriguez, Jose Miranda
It was a hit parade for the Kernels, but all 14 of their base knocks were singles. Akil Baddoo was a terror at the top of the lineup, going 3-for-4 with a walk and his 11th stolen base of the season.
This game was tied at 2-2 heading into the seventh, but Cedar Rapids managed to manufacture the go-ahead run. With runners on the corners and one out, Jordan Gore stole second base and an error on the throw allowed a run to score. Gore also delivered a big two-run single in the eighth inning in what was a three-hit night for the Kernels’ second baseman.
Jared Finkle pitched a perfect eighth and then retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. Then things got a bit too interesting. He ended up surrendering a couple of runs, but righted the ship in time to secure the victory for Cedar Rapids.
