Sunday saw a few rainouts in the upper minors as we await the outcome of some rumored promotions in the upper levels of the minors.

Gwinnett Stripers - PPD Rain

This game was cancelled because of rain.

Probable 8/5 Starter: Off day

Mississippi Braves - PPD Rain

The Braves scored a pair of runs in the first, with Trey Harris and Greyson Jenista each picking up RBI singles, and got two strong innings out of Philip Pfeifer before the rain came. This game is leaving off in the bottom of the second with Alejandro Salazar on second base and one out with the top of the order due up.

Probable 8/5 Starter: Ian Anderson

Jupiter Hammerheads 5, Florida Fire Frogs 2

Box score

  • Drew Lugbauer, 1B: 2-3, HR, 2 RBI, .584 OPS
  • Logan Brown, C: 1-4, .524 OPS
  • Freddy Tarnok, SP: 5.2 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 2 BB, 8 K, 5.50 ERA

This was the first game of a doubleheader and saw Freddy Tarnok nearly go the distance in the shortened game. Tarnok was an out shy of the complete game, giving up five runs on nine hits and a pair of walks over his five and two thirds innings before giving way to Lukas Young for the final out.

Offensively things weren’t great outside of a solo homer from Drew Lugbauer, who also singled home a run. Besides Lugbauer, the only other hits were Logan Brown and Riley Delgado singles.

Jupiter Hammerheads 5, Florida Fire Frogs 2

Box score

  • Riley Delgado, SS: 2-3, R, .670 OPS
  • Jefrey Ramos, LF: 1-3, 2B, RBI, .653 OPS
  • Garrison Schwartz, RF: 1-3, HR, .656 OPS

The second half of the doubleheader went the same way as the first, with the same score. Matt Withrow went two innings and allowed a run on a hit and a pair of walks. Sean McLaughlin followed with a pair of additional runs allowed over three innings, while Caleb Dirks gave up the final two runs in his inning.

At the plate things were a little better then the first game as Garrison Schwartz homered and Jefrey Ramos had an RBI double along with an outfield assist. Riley Delgado had a pair of singles in the loss, while Drew Lugbauer went one for three to give him three hits on the day.

Probable 8/5 Starter: Ryan Hartman

Rome Braves 7, West Virginia Power 2

Box score

  • Drew Campbell, RF: 3-5, 2B, 2 R, .582 OPS
  • Braulio Vasquez, 3B: 1-2, R, 3 BB, .542 OPS
  • Dilmer Mejia, SP: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K, 2.52 ERA

Dilmer Mejia was excellent here, going six shutout innings and allowing only three hits with two walks as he struck out six. Jose Montilla went the final three innings to pick up the save, allowing a pair of runs.

Drew Campbell had the biggest day at the plate, going three for five with a double and scoring a pair of runs- but he had some competition for that title. Braulio Vasquez went one for two, but walked three times to reach base four times on the day, while Braden Shewmake had a pair of doubles. Ricardo Rodriguez went two for five and Jose Bermudez walked and singled, giving the Braves fourth and fifth guys to get on base multiple times. Griffin Benson added a double with two RBI in five at bats.

Probable 8/5 Starter: Alan Rangel

Danville Braves 6, Princeton Rays 2

Box score

  • Cody Birdsong, 3B: 3-4, RBI, .536 OPS

  • Lisandro Santos, SP: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K, 0.00 ERA

Making his Danville debut and first start in the US this year, Lisandro Santos threw five scoreless innings, giving up three hits and three walks while striking out five. Zach Daniels gave up two runs over his inning, while Albinson Volquez went a pair of scoreless innings and Marrick Crouse had a 1-2-3 inning to finish the game off for Danville.

Cody Birdsong had a big day at the plate, going 3-4 with an RBI and scoring a run. Mitch Calandra had a multi-hit game including a triple and a pair of RBI. Bryce Ball continued his assault on Appalachian League pitching with a double.

Probable 8/5 Starter: Tyler Owens
