Charlotte Knights vs Norfolk Tides: Suspended

Suspended due to rain in the fifth inning, with Charlotte leading 5-3 over the the Tides. Dylan Cease only allowed one run over four innings, and had five strikeouts. Game will be completed on June 28, as part of a doubleheader at Norfolk.

Chattanooga Lookouts 7, Birmingham Barons 4

Felix Paulino (SP): 6 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 1 HR (L,3-2)
Luis Robert (CF): 3-for-5, 3 2B, 3 RBI **MVP**
Ti’Quan Forbes (3B): 1-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB
Blake Rutherford (RF): 1-for-4, 2B, 1 RBI, 0 K
Laz Rivera (SS): 1-for-3 ,2B, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Ramon Torres (2B-1B): 1-for-3, 2 R, 1 BB

The Barons were holding it down with a 4-0 lead going into the top of the sixth, then it all fell apart from there.

Birmingham got on the board first, in the second, with a Blake Rutherford RBI double. Then, Luis Robert kept it going with an RBI double of his own in the third, and doubled down with a two-run double in the fourth inning! He is dangerous. Robert would end up with three Doubles for the day.

Starter Felix Paulino was doing just fine until the sixth, when he allowed a two-run homer. Paulino’s day was done early in the seventh, after allowing an RBI triple and single. The Barons were unable to come back. Hard loss for Birmingham. Tomorrow, the boys start a 10-game road trip against the Jackson Generals and the Tennessee Smokies.

Winston Salem Dash vs Potomac Nationals: Cancelled

The doubleheader against Potomac was cancelled due to inclement weather. It’s been a crazy, rainy weekend. These games will not be made up.

Kannapolis Intimidators vs Hickory Crawdads: Postponed

I drove the 40 minutes to Intimidators Stadium to cheer on the K-Town Boys. It only rained a little this afternoon, followed by sunshine. The heat was drying up the grounds, but I guess the field was still trying to recover from last night’s hailstorm and downpour. There will be a doubleheader tomorrow night at 6 p.m. I will be attending and snapping some picture,s and hopefully enjoying a baseball-filled night out to make up for today.
