Another day of baseball in the books. See how the teams and prospects performed in their games last night.

AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (11-15) lost 5-4 (BOX SCORE)

Holmes got the start for the Grizzlies and struggled allowing 5 runs over 3.1 innings pitched. Fresno got on the board in the 2nd inning on a 2 run single from Aplin. They would get two more back in the 5th on a Brignac 2 run HR to make it 5-4. The bullpen was solid not allowing any runs but the offense wasn’t able to get anything else going.

Note: Fisher is hitting .313 with 4 HR, 10 RBI over his last 10 games.


AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (15-10) lost 6-1 (BOX SCORE)

Armenteros was on the mound but had his first rough start of the season going 3.2 innings allowing 7 hits and 2 runs. The Corpus offense was quiet not scoring until the 9th inning on a Muniz RBI single. James tossed 3 innings in relief allowing 1 run but that was about the most notable performance of the night as they fell 6-1.

Note: Muniz has 8 hits in his last 4 games.


A+: Buies Creek Astros (18-8) won 4-3 (BOX SCORE)

It took 12 innings but Buies Creek was able to take the win. Bower started and pitched well allowing 1 run over 5 innings of work.
