Triple A

Salt Lake Bees (LAA) at the Fresno Grizzlies

The Grizzlies put up an 8-spot in the 3rd that included Domingo Santana and LJ Hoes each reaching base twice and  Jon Singleton homer. The inning ended when LJ Hoes was thrown out trying to stretch his single to a double on a cut by former Astro, Marc Krauss. Singleton walked and also did not strike out. Preston Tucker also had 2 hits and Domingo Santana later added a homerun. Santana also did not strike out.

Brady Rodgers got roughed up a little bit giving up 11 hits and 7 runs but by golly he did not walk anyone. Josh Fields and James Hoyt each worked scoreless innings en route to holding the lead.

Fresno wins 9-8 and improves their record to 3-2.

Tweet of the Night (and he did extend his streak):

Double A

Corpus Christi Hooks at the Tulsa Drillers (LAD)

Pretty slow offensive night for the Hooks as they only had 6 hits and only scored 6 runs en route to the victory over the Drillers. Tony Kemp did his usual lead off thing going 1 for 3 and adding 2 walks. Captain Carlos Correa got to spend the night at DH and drove in 3 runs.

Strong goatee-ed Mike Hauschild struck out 8 over 5.0 IP. He did give up 7 hits and 3 runs, but he had enough support to get the win. Mich Lambson, Jandel Gustave (welcome back!), and Tyson Perez combined to pitch 4 innings of scoreless relief.

Corpus Christi wins 6-3 and improves their record to 5-0.

High A

Stockton Ports (OAK) at the Lancaster JetHawks

The young A's continued their big clubs assualt on Astros' ball clubs. The Ports piled up 13 hits against JetHawks pitching along with 13 runs. Not a whole lot of positives in this one. Anthony Boyer's boy, Chase McDonald, added a hit (a 2B) and 2 RBIs. Danry Vasquez also added a 2B along with 2 hits.

The JetHawks lose 13-4 and their record drops to 2-3.

Tweet of the Night (from the voice of the JetHawks):

Single A

Clinton Lumber Kings (SEA) at the Quad Cities River Bandits

Brock Dykxhoorn said "more like the Clinton Lumber Queens, am I right?" Dykxhoorn struck out 6 over 5.0 IP while only allowing 2 hits and sporting a 4-2 GO/AO.  The 6-8 mountain of a man was a 6th round draft pick in 2014. He struck out 36 in 31.1 IP last year while only walking 8. Lots of Ks, not many walks, Dykxhoorn is one worth learning how to spell the name.

The offense was paced by 2014, 14th round pick, Nick Tanielu. He piled up 3 hits with 2 of those being 2 baggers. Derek Fisher decided to be all compensation pick-like and homer while also walking and Jacob "The Sheriff" Nottingham added a homer of his own, his 2nd of the year.

Quad Cities wins 6-2 and improves their record to 4-1.
