(Birmingham Barons)

Birmingham Barons 8, Mississippi Braves 1

Joel Booker (.271): 1-for-5, 1 RBI, 1 R

Luis Alexander Basabe (.211): 1-for-3, 3 R, 2 BB, 1 SB (4)

W: Jimmy Lambert (2-1, 4.50 ERA), 7 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 9 K ***MVP***

The Barons jumped out to a 3-0 lead with four first-inning singles including RBIs by Zack Collins and Trey Michalczewski and that was all RHP Jimmy Lambert would need in a win on Monday night. Lambert was absolutely dominant through seven innings, allowing only one run while striking out nine and issuing zero walks. Lambert’s outstanding work allowed the Barons’ bats to keep adding on as Luis Basabe scored three runs, Collins reached base four times and Michalczewski had two hits and two RBI to lead the way.


Winston-Salem Dash 7, Salem Red Sox 3

Luis Gonzalez (.313): 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 R

Laz Rivera (.319): 2-for-5, 2 2B, 1 R

Blake Rutherford (.301): 2-for-5, 2 2B, 1 R

Mitch Roman (.288): 1-for-4, 2B, 1 RBI, 1 R, 1 BB

Gavin Sheets (.292): 3-for-4, 3 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R ***MVP***

Ti’Quan Forbes (.291): 1-for-4, 2B, 1 RBI

Zach Remillard (.247): 1-for-3, 2B, 1 R, 1 BB

W: Blake Hickman (2-2, 7.02 ERA), 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 0 K

The Dash doubled their way to victory on Monday with a season-high 10 two-baggers. Gavin Sheets had a monster night, with three doubles, three RBI and two runs scored, having now hit safely in 21 of his last 22 games. Laz Rivera and Blake Rutherford each had a pair of doubles and scored a run. After three straight starts allowing at least six earned runs, RHP Blake Hickman earned a quality start with six innings pitched allowing just two earned runs. Hickman walked four while striking out none, but turned in quite possibly his best start of the season. Rutherford’s pair of extra base-knocks pushed his OPS over .800 on the season.


Kannapolis Intimidators 6, Lakewood BlueClaws 2

Nolan Brown (.280): 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 SB (7)

Johan Cruz (.215): 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 SB (2)

Craig Dedelow (.268): 1-for-3, 2B, 3 RBI, 1 BB ***MVP***

Carlos Perez (.259): 2-for-4, 2 2B, 1 R

Justin Yurchak (.255): 1-for-3, 2 R, 1 BB

Yosmer Solorzano (4.85 ERA): 4 2/3 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

W: Luis Ledo (4-1, 4.95 ERA), 2 1/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

S: Joe Mockbee (1, 1.13 ERA), 1/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

The I’s plated three runs in both the sixth and seventh innings to turn a 2-0 deficit into a 6-2 victory on Monday night. With the bases loaded in the sixth inning, Craig Dedelow doubled to right field, driving in all three baserunners on what proved to be the game-winner. Carlos Perez came through with a pair of doubles and scored a run. Starting pitcher Yosmer Solorzano couldn’t make it through the fifth, but limited the damage to give the Intimidators a chance to rally back -- which they did.


AZL White Sox vs AZL Padres, Postponed due to rain


DSL Padres 5, DSL White Sox 3

Edwin Peralta (.178): 1-for-4, 2B, 1 R

Jose Rodriguez (.277): 1-for-3, 2B, 1 R, 1 BB

Jhoneiker Betancourt (.263): 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 R

Jefferson Mendoza (.222): 1-for-3, 2 RBI

Yoelvin Silven (2.05 ERA): 6 1/3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K ***MVP***

L: Luis Nin (0-1, 0.00 ERA): 1 2/3 IP, 1 H, 2 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 3 K

The DSL White Sox carried a 3-0 lead into the seventh inning and led 3-2 in the eighth before late defensive issues once again led to a loss. DSL White Sox committed three errors -- including a the 10th of the season by 3B Edwin Peralta -- as the DSL Padres plated all five of their runs over the final three frames to steal the win. Starting pitcher Yoelvin Silven pitched a gem into the seventh inning, allowing just one earned run and striking out eight on the afternoon. After recording an out to start the seventh inning, Peralta made his error and after a RBI double, reliever Luis Nin threw a wild pitch then balked in a run. The eighth inning saw more issues as Nin issued a leadoff walk before committing an error. Then, a passed ball and throwing error by C Jefferson Mendoza helped set up a couple more DSL Padres runs. Mendoza did come through with a two-run single in the fourth inning.
