RED WINGS REPORT
Rochester 1, Columbus 1 (Game suspended in bottom 5th)
The Red Wings and Clippers will resume this game and make it up tomorrow as part of a quasi-doubleheader.
Before the game was put on hold, Brent Rooker kept up his hot hitting.
BLUE WAHOOS BITES
ALL STAR BREAK
Fort Myers 4, Charlotte 3 (7 innings, Game 1)
Playing a doubleheader tonight Edwar Colina got the nod for Fort Myers in the first game. Working one out into the 6th inning he left in line for the win. Alex Phillips did allow a trio of inherited runners to score, but the Miracle held on to get the victory.
This one was like a page out of the big league book. Ryan Jeffers returned from the home run derby blasting his ninth dinger in the first inning. The two-run lead was added to in the second thanks to a Royce Lewis solo blast. Tied at three in the final frame Lewis stepped in again. His second dinger of the day came in walk-off fashion and doubled his homer output in 2019.
Charlotte 5, Fort Myers 0 (7 innings, Game 2)
After racking up eight hits in the earlier game against the Stone Crabs offense was non-existent in the nightcap. Melvi Acosta and Joe Record allowed five earned and Trevor Larnach accounted for the only hit in the game.
ALL STAR BREAK
Bluefield 6, Elizabethton 0
Ryley Widell made his 2019 debut tonight for the E-Twins and looked sharp. Working four complete he gave up just one run on two hits while fanning six and walking none. After a strong eight game debut with Elizabethton in 2018, that’s a great note to begin this campaign on.
Unfortunately the E-Twins were able to generate just five hits on the evening and didn’t push any runs across. Bluefield got to the bullpen late and the five runs scored after thesixth inning was enough to do the home team in.
