Ian Hamilton: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

The Knights dropped an extra-inning dogfight, 6-4. Eloy Jimenez did not start the game, but came in to pinch-hit for Jake Elmore and singled. Patrick Leonard was the big offensive provider, with a two RBIs and a double. However, the true MVPs were in the bullpen. Until the 11th inning, the pen threw a shutout ,with all the familiar names (Tyler Danish, Aaron Bummer, Carson Fulmer, Ian Hamilton). On top of five scoreless innings, they did not allow a hit either, which let allowed the Knights to come back and tie the game.


Birmingham Barons 6, Jackson Generals 2

Joel Booker: 2-for-4, 3 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 SB

Luis Basabe: 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 3 K

Zack Collins: 1-for-3, 1 R, 2 BB, 2 K

Tanner Banks: 8 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K **MVP**

The Barons, led by Tanner Banks, flanked the Generals, 6-2. Banks went eight strong innings and lowered his ERA to 2.70 in Birmingham. For the offense, only the first five hitters in the lineup garnered hits. Joel Booker led the way with two, but he is still in a rut after a stellar start to his AA career. Overall, the offense took advantage of command issues from the Generals, coaxing eight walks.


Winston-Salem Dash 7, Myrtle Beach Pelicans 2

Luis Gonzalez: 0-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K

Blake Rutherford: 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K, 2 SB

Lincoln Henzman: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Tyler Johnson: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Another all-around win for the Dash. The defense did not commit any errors, and baserunners stole three bases. Offensively, the club reached base 13 times (nine hits and four walks). Gavin Sheets and Laz Rivera led the way for the offense, with two hits each, combining for three RBIs. Lincoln Henzman got the start, but he is still on an innings limit that will prevent him from going deep into games. He threw a three-inning shutout and did not issue a walk. In fact, only Tyler Johnson walked a batter for the Dash. They are now 61-39 on the year.


Kannapolis Intimidators 2, Hickory Crawdads 1 (10)

Zach Lewis: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K

Joe Nin: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K **MVP**

In a uneventful extra-inning game, the I’s take the win. Kannapolis had only one extra-base hit, which ruined their scoring opportunities despite getting nine men on base. Zach Lewis got the start and battled through five innings to keep the game scoreless. Will Kincanon allowed the lone run for the I’s, a solo homer run in the seventh. Jose Nin took over after the seventh and threw three shutout innings to earn the win. Nick Madrigal extends his strikeout-free streak.
