  1. And then there were two - Biloxi and Nashville. What a long strange trip it always is. We begin each season with four full-season affiliates, we add four summer league teams (in the Dominican and in Arizona), and then we lose the same four summer league teams. Finally, we whittle away Low-A and High-A and we enter the home stretch. Soon there will only be our beloved Nashville Sounds left standing. The Minor League baseball season is a wild and wooly beast and we are here for every step of the way. Let's get into the reports. Image courtesy of Brewer Fanatic Transactions: Firstly, let's get you up to date with the brief flurry of moves from Monday: A special congratulations is in order, from my POV, to RHP Taylor Floyd who did it the hard way and earned his way back to Double-A. He was phenomenal in Wisconsin. And, of course, congratulations to all other players who receive these late season promotions. All extremely well deserved. I guess we should also definitely point out the historic nature of Jackson Chourio's late-season send off in Double-A: That probably deserves a: "WOW!". At this point, these types of things are ridiculously routine for Chourio which is, well, simply nuts. And, lastly, there were a couple Brewers-related moves today: RHP Trevor Gott and OF Jonny Davis were both sent on rehab assignments to the Nashville Sounds Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Jacksonville (Marlins) 4, Nashville 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please visit and review: Sounds Drop Series Opener to Jumbo Shrimp - Lead atop International League West Division Remains 2.5 Games Happy birthday to Marcus Walden who turned 34 years young on this fine September day. Coming in to this game tonight, my first thought was: "A plus 5 ERA does not do justice for the fine work Walden has given the Sounds outside of, say, two rough outings.". By and large, he's been a multi-tool for the pitching staff. He'll start. He'll come out of the bullpen. He's dependable. Like Josh Lindbolm, he's another quality veteran and I've enjoyed the work he's given his team and the fans so far in 2022. He finished tonight with just 76 pitches, 52 strikes, in 6 complete IP. All told he gave up 1 R (unearned), 4 H, 1 BB, 5 K. He lowered his ERA to 4.53 and I exhaled freely: justice was served in the baseball universe. Three Quick Strikes: 1) The air seemed a bit stiff in Nashville tonight - several fly balls seemed to fall flat at the warning track as the ballpark flags drooped listless high atop their poles. It could be I see things less accurately as I age, but, this certainly seemed to be the case. This being said, a Sounds outfield combination of Esteury Ruiz, Jonathan Davis , and Joey Wiemer (left to right) has some serious serious speed and can cover some serious serious ground. During RHP Trevor Gott's first rehab inning, Ruiz ran down a well-hit liner down the left field line with a man on first. It was a key out. He made the fly out look awfully routine. I'm here to tell you: it most definitely was not. He ran down a hard hit liner in shallow left field an inning or two prior. You have to absolutely earn everything you hit into that Nashville outfield grass. 2) Sal Frelick is an on base machine in Triple-A Nashville. He started his evening 3-for-3 adding his fifth three hit game since his promotion (he also has a four hit game in his bag). He is truly an exciting pure lead-off prospect for the Brewers - every at-bat is a battle, nothing is freely given, and he more often than not can work the count to his benefit even when he's behind 0-2. It's simply a matter of time - there is entirely too much talent in this young man's toolkit - before he's an everyday player in Milwaukee. 3) Five errors committed by the division leading, fielding percentage leading, Nashville Sounds? Unfortunately, that isn't a typo. I saw several of these miscues - none worse than the E2, E6 in succession by Pedro Feliciano and Brice Turang allowing the absolutely not speedy Willians Astudillo to score from first base in the Jacksonville eighth frame. Feliciano also managed his 11th passed ball on his season in an ugly catch attempt of a Gott outside 96-mph heater. Feliciano got his full glove on the ball and, well, he simply didn't catch it. A smart betting man would opine: we probably won't see a poorer fielding night the rest of Nashville's 2022 season; previous to this laugher, the Sounds had topped out at two errors in a game on 14 separate occasions. This was as ugly as it will get. We're onward and upward from here, folks! Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 7, Pensacola (Marlins) 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shucker' site, game details, please visit and review: Chourio Drives in Three in Double-A Debut as Shuckers Top Wahoos - Luna Twirls Six Quality Innings All I want for (baseball) Christmas is a solid ending to the Shuckers season. Taking game one in convincing, quality start, shutdown bullpen fashion in Pensacola gives me the fuel I need to watch these young men close their 2022 season in a good way. It's certainly been no secret that I've endured these Shuckers up-and-downs from afar as I have watched the Brewers Double-A affiliate throughout all of 2022. But, let me tell you, the way they bounced back versus Mississippi in their closing home series after seeing a 26-4 deficit through two games has me believing again. RHP Carlos Luna gave us a fantastic quality start to get the series started right. His teammates followed suit. Three Quick Strikes: 1) OF Jackson Chourio definitely impacted his first Double-A game in classic Chourio fashion: 1-for-4, 1 2B, 1 SF, 3 RBI, 3 K. The strikeouts were back in a hurry with this level jump but so were the timely hits and skillful plays. Take a look on this deep drive to almost leave the ballpark high up the right center field wall nearly clearing the bases (apologies, Jason Lopez): He followed with a very casual deep liner sacrifice fly to extend the Shuckers lead to 7-2 in the sixth inning. The strikeout rate had improved significantly with his jump to High-A dropping to a very respectable 21%. We'll simply have to watch and see if he can adapt in this extremely brief test of Double-A waters. All in all, a very solid debut. 2) I've said it a couple times recently, but it's worth bringing it up again: the example OF Garrett Whitley is giving in Biloxi is noteworthy. I love his availability, his approach, his body language, his professionalism and his results. After tonight's 2-for-4 outing (1 2B, 1 HR, 1 BB), he pushed his BA to 0.260 and his OPS to 0.865. He has speed that plays all over the outfield and on the base paths. I do not take his efforts for granted and I sincerely hope the Brewers can keep his veteran presence in the fold in 2023. If they could manage to keep both he and Monasterio in the fold, that would be a massive get for organizational depth at the upper levels. Both young men are just entering their primes and both young men are fantastic baseball players. Let's get this done, Brewers! 3) Welcome back to Double-A, Taylor Floyd. What a turnaround for this young man as he has battled through the early season woes in that early-season arduous return from injury. He has turned many new pages over the past month plus in Appleton and this continues for Biloxi as he looks to close his 2022 campaign. Floyd went 1 scoreless IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 K. How rough was his early season tenure with the Shuckers? He lowered his ERA to 8.18 in Double-A after tonight's scoreless frame. RHP TJ Shook looks to bounce back strong after his most recent outing and LHP Ethan Small continues looking for a quality start. With Nashville barely clinging to a 2 1/2 game lead, and with their worst defensive performance of 2022 in their rearview mirror, now is the time for Small to find that early season shutdown stuff. Your team needs you, Mr. Small. It is time.

  3. Cam Devanney led the Biloxi offense with three hits and four runs batted in, while Carlos Luna and Noah Zavolas were excellent in covering the full nine innings, giving Biloxi a 7-3 win over Pensacola. Carlos F. Rodriguez was his usual exceptional self for the Mudcats, while the offense came through with a 6-run 5th inning in their 7-3 win over Down East. The Timber Rattlers produced only two runs in their doubleheader sweep at the hands of Beloit, spoiling a fine pitching effort by Antoine Kelly in the opening game. Nashville gave up big hits and left too many men on base in their series-deciding 9-5 loss at Louisville, despite Jon Singleton and Keston Hiura combining for two home runs and five RBIs. Sunday’s Game Balls go to Devanney, Rodriguez, Kelly, Luna and Singleton, with apologies to Hiura and Zavolas. Transactions: OF Jackson Chourio promoted to High-A Wisconsin from Low-A Carolina RHP Freddy Peralta commenced rehab assignment at AAA Nashville Game Action: Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Louisville 9, Nashville 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Bats Power Past Sounds on Sunday DH/1B Jon Singleton (2-for-5, HR, 2 RBIs) continued his terrific 3-game series (6-for-13, 3 HR, 8 RBIs), giving Nashville a 1-0 lead with a 1st inning single. However, the Sounds stranded four runners in the first two innings, a theme of the game. Rehabbing RHP Freddy Peralta (2 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 3 Ks) returned to action for the first time since May 22, throwing 33 pitches (22 strikes) over two innings and exiting with the score tied 1-1. Peralta gave up a home run on his very first pitch and also walked the lead-off batter in the 2nd inning, which were the sole blemishes in his encouraging comeback. RHP Luis Perdomo pitched a 1-2-3 third inning in his fourth rehab appearance for Nashville, though he’s yet to throw more than 14 pitches in any outing. RHP Josh Lindblom was unfortunately battered for four runs in the 4th inning to set Nashville back 5-1, though 2B Keston Hiura (2-for-5, HR, 3 RBIs) closed the gap to 5-4 by smashing his fourth homer in AAA this year, a 3-run shot in the top of the 5th inning. However, two more runners were stranded in that frame. Lindblom gave up a single and a walk in the bottom of the 5th inning, but nearly escaped via a caught stealing (thank you C Mario Feliciano), fly out and ground ball, but Hiura booted the latter. Lindblom then walked his final batter before giving way to RHP Zack Brown, who conceded a walk and a back-breaking grand slam to trail 9-4. Singleton homered in on a 2-0 pitch in the 7th inning to claw back to 9-5, while Nashville's bullpen of RHPs Matt Hardy, Trevor Kelley and Luis Contreras combined on three scoreless, hitless innings to give the offense a chance. However, Nashville stranded three more runners in the 8th inning to complete a frustrating night, as Hiura grounded out in his opportunity to play hero. 22-year old leadoff man SS Brice Turang (1-for-2, 3 walks, SB) reached base four times in the game, as he continues to perform at a high level (season slash: .282 AVG / .349 OBP / .378 SLG). Next week’s outlook: The 55-37 Sounds return home, facing 34-59 Charlotte this week. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 7, Pensacola 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Devanney's Perfect Night Drives Shuckers To 7-3 Victory 3B Cam Devanney (3-for-3, HR, 4 RBIs) may be the surprise of the season, once again stepping up for this talented Biloxi offense. RHP Carlos Luna (5 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 3 Ks) retired the first 11 batters he faced before conceding consecutive 2-out home runs in the 4th inning, as the Shuckers found themselves behind 2-0. Thankfully, the Biloxi offense immediately responded with 4th inning doubles from OF Garrett Mitchell (1-for-4, double), OF Joey Wiemer (2-for-3, double, walk, SB) and 1B Noah Campbell (1-for-4, double, RBI), a single from DH Tristen Lutz and a Devanney sacrifice fly, giving the team a 3-2 lead which it would not relinquish. Devanney’s second hit of the game extended the Shucker advantage to 4-2 in the 5th inning. RHP Noah Zavolas (4 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 BB, 1 HBP, 4 Ks) entered in the 6th inning, getting a rough start by yielding a double and RBI single (4-3 lead), before settling in to retire eight straight batters in a fine outing. C Brent Diaz (1-for-4, HR, RBI) re-established the 2-run lead with his 7th homer of 2022, a solo shot in the 6th inning. Devanney completed his evening with a 2-run homer (15th of the season) in the 7th inning to push Biloxi’s advantage to 7-3. Whether his bat is hot or not, it’s excellent to see Wiemer continue to contribute in all manners, including his 24th stolen base of 2022 and this web-gem: Next week’s outlook: 42-46 Biloxi remains home to take on 41-42 Montgomery this week. RHP Victor Castaneda is expected to start the series opener. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Game One Final: Beloit 1, Wisconsin 0 (final in 7 innings) Box Score / Game Log Game Two Final: Beloit 5, Wisconsin 2 (final in 7 innings) Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, Game One details: Unearned Run Beats Wisconsin in Game One Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, Game Two details: Rattlers Drop Game Two 5-2 to Sky Carp LHP Antoine Kelly (5 IP, 1 R (0 ER), 4 H, 3 BB, 7 Ks) threw 100 pitches (64 strikes) and deserved a better fate, but was instead saddled with a loss as the Timber Rattler bats couldn’t produce in the opening game of Sunday’s doubleheader. The only run which Beloit needed came via a walk, two stolen bases and a throwing error in the first inning. 1B Ashton McGee (2-for-3, double) doubled in the 2nd inning and added a leadoff 7th inning single, but his teammates couldn’t come through. A two-on, nobody out 3rd inning opportunity (SS Antonio Pinero single, OF Terence Doston walk) also yielded nothing, while another two runners were stranded in the 6th inning (OF Joe Gray Jr. double, OF Tristan Peters walk). Kudos to RHP Joey Matulovich (2 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 0 K) for two strong innings of relief work in the opening 1-0 loss. In the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader, the Sky Carp scored in each of the first three innings against RHP Justin Jarvis (4 IP, 5 R, 7 H, 2 BB, 1 WP, 3 Ks) in building a 5-0 lead. RHPs Zach Mort, James Meeker and Taylor Floyd kept a flicker of hope alive with three scoreless innings, with Mort in particular striking out three batters. Wisconsin’s last push produced two runs on three hits in the 6th inning by Peters (2-for-3), Gray (1-for-3, double) and DH Darrien Miller (1-for-2, walk, RBI), but that was as close as they’d come in the 5-2 series finale, sadly concluding a 3-game sweep by Beloit. At least the team made some fine defensive plays along the way: Next week’s outlook: 48-41 Wisconsin will also remain home, hosting 55-35 Cedar Rapids, with OF Jackson Chourio expected to join the squad from Tuesday. LHP Russell Smith is scheduled to start the opening game. Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 7, Down East 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats’ website, game details: Mudcats Score Six in the Fifth to Down the Wood Ducks After showing he was mortal in his last outing, 20-year old RHP Carlos F. Rodriguez (5 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 Ks) was back in shutdown mode on Sunday to lead the Mudcats to a series clinching victory. OF Hendry Mendez (1-for-3, SF, RBI) got things started right away, singling to lead off the bottom of the first and extend his hitting streak to 13 games. OF Jackson Chourio (1-for-4, double) followed with his 23rd double of the season and OF Hedbert Perez (1-for-3, triple, SF, RBI) delivered the first run via sacrifice fly. A 3rd inning Wood Duck homer knotted the affair at 1-1, though Rodriguez’s defense came to his aid by throwing out two runners at third base in the same inning (left fielder Perez on a single; C Jeferson Quero on an attempted steal). Quero gunned down another robbery attempt in the top of the 5th inning (this time at second base) and Down East thankfully went to their bullpen in the bottom half of the inning, enabling Carolina to unleash its pent-up offense. In that 5th inning, the Mudcats produced six runs on four hits and two hit batsmen, with the big hits coming through a Perez triple and 1B Jesus Chirinos (2-for-4, HR, RBI) solo homer (6th of the year) for a 7-1 advantage. RHPs Fernando Olguin and Miguel Guerrero were both effective in relief, throwing scoreless 6th and 9th innings, respectively. This was Olguin’s fourth straight short appearance after working as a starter or long man in his first eight outings. Mr. Chourio was promoted to High-A Wisconsin after the game, ending his unforgettable 62-game stretch in Carolina with a .324 / .373 / .600 slash line in 271 plate appearances, including 40 extra-base hits, 47 RBIs, 51 runs scored and 10 stolen bases. Way to go Jackson!!! Next week’s outlook: 45-45 Carolina hits the road to face 38-50 Fayetteville this week.

  4. Biloxi and Carolina grabbed series-clinching wins over tough competition with solid 7-3 victories. Wisconsin was swept in a doubleheader, as the bats disappointed. Nashville gave up four home runs to lose their finale in Louisville.

Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Biloxi 7, Pensacola 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Devanney's Perfect Night Drives Shuckers To 7-3 Victory 3B Cam Devanney (3-for-3, HR, 4 RBIs) may be the surprise of the season, once again stepping up for this talented Biloxi offense. RHP Carlos Luna (5 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 3 Ks) retired the first 11 batters he faced before conceding consecutive 2-out home runs in the 4th inning, as the Shuckers found themselves behind 2-0. Thankfully, the Biloxi offense immediately responded with 4th inning doubles from OF Garrett Mitchell (1-for-4, double), OF Joey Wiemer (2-for-3, double, walk, SB) and 1B Noah Campbell (1-for-4, double, RBI), a single from DH Tristen Lutz and a Devanney sacrifice fly, giving the team a 3-2 lead which it would not relinquish. Devanney’s second hit of the game extended the Shucker advantage to 4-2 in the 5th inning. RHP Noah Zavolas (4 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 BB, 1 HBP, 4 Ks) entered in the 6th inning, getting a rough start by yielding a double and RBI single (4-3 lead), before settling in to retire eight straight batters in a fine outing. C Brent Diaz (1-for-4, HR, RBI) re-established the 2-run lead with his 7th homer of 2022, a solo shot in the 6th inning. Devanney completed his evening with a 2-run homer (15th of the season) in the 7th inning to push Biloxi’s advantage to 7-3. Whether his bat is hot or not, it’s excellent to see Wiemer continue to contribute in all manners, including his 24th stolen base of 2022 and this web-gem: Next week’s outlook: 42-46 Biloxi remains home to take on 41-42 Montgomery this week. RHP Victor Castaneda is expected to start the series opener. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Game One Final: Beloit 1, Wisconsin 0 (final in 7 innings) Box Score / Game Log Game Two Final: Beloit 5, Wisconsin 2 (final in 7 innings) Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, Game One details: Unearned Run Beats Wisconsin in Game One Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, Game Two details: Rattlers Drop Game Two 5-2 to Sky Carp LHP Antoine Kelly (5 IP, 1 R (0 ER), 4 H, 3 BB, 7 Ks) threw 100 pitches (64 strikes) and deserved a better fate, but was instead saddled with a loss as the Timber Rattler bats couldn’t produce in the opening game of Sunday’s doubleheader. The only run which Beloit needed came via a walk, two stolen bases and a throwing error in the first inning. 1B Ashton McGee (2-for-3, double) doubled in the 2nd inning and added a leadoff 7th inning single, but his teammates couldn’t come through. A two-on, nobody out 3rd inning opportunity (SS Antonio Pinero single, OF Terence Doston walk) also yielded nothing, while another two runners were stranded in the 6th inning (OF Joe Gray Jr. double, OF Tristan Peters walk). Kudos to RHP Joey Matulovich (2 IP, 0 H, 1 BB, 0 K) for two strong innings of relief work in the opening 1-0 loss. In the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader, the Sky Carp scored in each of the first three innings against RHP Justin Jarvis (4 IP, 5 R, 7 H, 2 BB, 1 WP, 3 Ks) in building a 5-0 lead. RHPs Zach Mort, James Meeker and Taylor Floyd kept a flicker of hope alive with three scoreless innings, with Mort in particular striking out three batters. Wisconsin’s last push produced two runs on three hits in the 6th inning by Peters (2-for-3), Gray (1-for-3, double) and DH Darrien Miller (1-for-2, walk, RBI), but that was as close as they’d come in the 5-2 series finale, sadly concluding a 3-game sweep by Beloit. At least the team made some fine defensive plays along the way: Next week’s outlook: 48-41 Wisconsin will also remain home, hosting 55-35 Cedar Rapids, with OF Jackson Chourio expected to join the squad from Tuesday. LHP Russell Smith is scheduled to start the opening game. Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 7, Down East 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats’ website, game details: Mudcats Score Six in the Fifth to Down the Wood Ducks After showing he was mortal in his last outing, 20-year old RHP Carlos F. Rodriguez (5 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 Ks) was back in shutdown mode on Sunday to lead the Mudcats to a series clinching victory. OF Hendry Mendez (1-for-3, SF, RBI) got things started right away, singling to lead off the bottom of the first and extend his hitting streak to 13 games. OF Jackson Chourio (1-for-4, double) followed with his 23rd double of the season and OF Hedbert Perez (1-for-3, triple, SF, RBI) delivered the first run via sacrifice fly. A 3rd inning Wood Duck homer knotted the affair at 1-1, though Rodriguez’s defense came to his aid by throwing out two runners at third base in the same inning (left fielder Perez on a single; C Jeferson Quero on an attempted steal). Quero gunned down another robbery attempt in the top of the 5th inning (this time at second base) and Down East thankfully went to their bullpen in the bottom half of the inning, enabling Carolina to unleash its pent-up offense. In that 5th inning, the Mudcats produced six runs on four hits and two hit batsmen, with the big hits coming through a Perez triple and 1B Jesus Chirinos (2-for-4, HR, RBI) solo homer (6th of the year) for a 7-1 advantage. RHPs Fernando Olguin and Miguel Guerrero were both effective in relief, throwing scoreless 6th and 9th innings, respectively. This was Olguin’s fourth straight short appearance after working as a starter or long man in his first eight outings. Mr. Chourio was promoted to High-A Wisconsin after the game, ending his unforgettable 62-game stretch in Carolina with a .324 / .373 / .600 slash line in 271 plate appearances, including 40 extra-base hits, 47 RBIs, 51 runs scored and 10 stolen bases. Way to go Jackson!!! Next week’s outlook: 45-45 Carolina hits the road to face 38-50 Fayetteville this week.

  5. Transactions: There was a bit of action in the player movement department including another unexpected and, frankly, sad retirement. (Retroactive to 6/27) INF Pablo Reyes was optioned back to Nashville from Milwaukee INF Andruw Monasterio was assigned to Biloxi from Nashville RHP Trevor Kelley was optioned back to Triple-A Nashville from the Brewers RHP Israel Puello was assigned/promoted () to Wisconsin from Carolina INF Antonio Pinero was activated from the 7-Day IL returning to the Timber Rattlers' active roster RHP Edrian Robinson of ACL Brewers Blue was placed on the 60-Day IL LHP Scott Sunitsch began his rehab assignment with the ACL Brewers Gold RHP Jolon Zhao handed in his walking papers and retired *** Let's kick off our DSL coverage with an homage to our very own @damuelle who gave us this little DSL nugget in the Minor League Game Thread earlier today: An awesome day in the DSL for our two Brewers squads. Let's recap... DSL Brewers 1 4 , DSL White Sox 2: Daniel (quoted above) gave you the Jhonny Severino teaser. With that double and triple in today's 3-for-5 lead-off line, he is now 8-for-13 over his last three contests. The BA is up to 0.255 and the OPS is creeping toward 0.800 at 0.772. One of our current Brewer Fanatic favorites in Luis Lara continues to perform extremely consistently and extremely well. Today was no different as Luis went 2-for-5 and is now rocking a 0.352 BA with a 0.939 OPS in 72 at bats. In addition to the fine work from Osbriel Mogollon , we saw fine scoreless work from Leonardo Rivera and Jesael Cabrera who pitched five combined scoreless innings. This is three straight victories for the DSL Brewers 1 who have improved to 6 and 12 in their early going. DSL Brewers 2 5, DSL Phillies White 3: Reybert Reyes had a 1 1/3 inning four hit and three run hiccup (including two straight hit batters before departing in the eighth) allowing the Phillies back into the game late. Reyes can thank his running mate Nelson Cuevas for preventing further damage and ensuring a victory to get back to 0.500 at 9-9. Cuevas shut the Phillies down with a closing scoreless 1 2/3 innings. It was shutdown work at first but Nelson worked for it in the end - the drama included consecutive singles, a hit batter, bases loaded drama and a throw at home. Let's hit the showers and call it a 'W'! Whewwww. Perhaps most pleasant in this victory was the multiple hit performances from the bottom-of-the-order and sub 0.200 hitters Demetrio Nadal and Mendy Ferreira. A hard fought if unexpected victory. *** Let's kick off our ACL games with some tasty tasty highlights from RHP Phil Silverio's work last week versus the ACL Royals. ACL White Sox 7, ACL Brewers Gold 4: Let's start with a tip of our proverbial hats to up and coming OF Luis Castillo. With today's 1-for-4 outing (1 rbi, 1 triple), he continues to rake: 0.397 BA and 1.145 OPS in 58 at bats. Quite an intriguing beginning for the 18-year-old prospect. Of note in the pitching realm: Ryan Middendorf completed another scoreless inning - 4 1/3 total. A small sample but a good result. So far, Ryan's unscored upon with a WHIP sub-1.00. And, in his first rehab outing Scott Sunitsch opened with a scoreless one hit, one strikeout inning. Kudos for a successful return! ACL Brewers Blue 3, ACL D-Backs Red 0: A shutout is always worthy of a deeper dive. Seven complete innings of 3 hit, 8 strikeout ball. Anthony Perez started this gem out with five unblemished three hit innings including four strikeouts. Perhaps most impressive is the Brewers Blue did not give out a single walk in the entire outing. Following Perez, Leoni Cruz (at his age of 24 looking to get promoted) completed a scoreless three strikeout inning while Quinton Low pitched another scoreless frame to close out the game. Offensively, the bats were relatively quiet but it was enough. And, special mention will go to OF 19-year-old Venezuelan Jamal Zalm whose 0-for-1 two walk outing brought two key runs across the dish. *** Final: Carolina 8, Fayetteville (Astros) 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats' site, game details, please visit and review: Mudcats Win See-Saw Battle 8-5 to End Skid - Eduardo Garcia Led the Way While Going 3-for-4 with Three RBI in Carolina's Series Opening Victory Versus Fayetteville Let's talk about the 2-1-2-3 run output to close this baby out. That's the stuff. Coming on late but coming on. That's how you end the 6-game skid. Let's keep it rolling! Eduardo Garcia gets the sound bite with his 3-for-4 evening but let's also recognize Jackson Chourio's triple (his fifth) and Jesus Chirinos two-hit night with three rbi's. Junior Montero gets the victory in this one but it came at the price of a blown save. Michele Vassalotti continues his resurgence. After a recent bout of challenged outings, Vassalotti has now gone three straight outings of three combined innings with zero runs and six punch outs. That's what we became accustomed to and it feels quite nice to see its return. Let's talk about Carlos Rodriguez. He continues his run of excellence. In five outings in June, the Mudcats' Ace has now pitched to the tune of 21 1/3 innings, 10 hits, 11 walks, 25 k's, 5 runs, 2 HR's, 1 HB, 0.149 BAA, 0.98 WHIP, 2.11 ERA. Folks, he's a stud. We are seeing a trend. Let's not forget: He ended May with a better k:bb ratio, yes, but the ERA is now floating on a two-month 2.05 average. May and June combined we are looking at 55 k's to 15 bb's. The word I would prefer to use here is 'zesty'. Let me close with a Hedbert Perez missile from last week.

He did manage the three strikeouts but the five runs - including a two-run homer to the second batter he faced - had put his team in a hole. The T-Rats managed to scatter three hits but plated nary a runner. Hence, we'll pick this back up tomorrow and follow with a seven inning game to complete the now double-header. *** Before we get into Biloxi's comeback win let's honor Shucker C/OF/DH Jakson Reetz (thank you@Mass Haas: See Thread Here).

So did this: Andruw Monasterio: we salute you! Further mention is in order for Kent Hasler's scoreless 1 2/3 innings that handed the ball to Carlos Luna who was phenomenal. I've said it before: Luna has the toolkit it's simply a matter of control. One walk in four innings will get the job done. Fantastic work tonight from Luna! Sometimes a rally takes an opportunistic hit and some timely courage. How about this tying run: What does winning baseball look like? You saw the Mike Guerrero send of Felix Valerio above - a great call and a heck of a jump and slide from Valerio. Well, let's take a look at Jason Lopez getting the jump to score the winning run off of Noah Campbell's sacrifice fly: I sense bigger and better things for Biloxi in their second half - after all they struggled with in the first few months, they still had their chance for an automatic post-season bid. Tonight was a fantastic beginning. Let's keep rooting them on. *** If we're going to celebrate Reetz above, we're definitely going to celebrate Ethan Small right here: International League Pitcher of the Week.

The press release is here. It's hard to fathom Jackson Chourio hasn't grabbed one of these awards yet given his continued fabulous play. Regardless, this award was noteworthy indeed as Hedbert is the first Mudcats player to receive this recognition in 2022. Here's to many more! For a pitcher with such a nice breaking curve and growing change-up, RHP Carlos Rodriguez has some truly dangerous tools to work with. This being said, on several 0-2 counts, Carlos appeared to be leaving far too many flat fast balls over the heart of the plate. He was touching 93 on the heater while dropping that curve down to the low 70's. There's lots to work with for the 20-year-old - he utilized his change-up in the second inning for two straight strikeouts to finish the inning. I'd also opine, Carlos might have the best pick-off move to first of the entire Mudcats staff. It's a very quick turn and he nearly grabbed a runner in the first and then he managed to successfully pick the lead-off runner off in the second inning for the first out. For the Hillcats, Jack Leftwich - previously featured as a piggy-back bullpen stud - was on the mound starting for Lynchburg. (He will start a second time in this same series.) He was cruising through the early innings finishing inning number one striking out Jackson Chourio while ending inning number two by striking out both Jeferson Quero and Hedbert Perez on high heat. He was touching 94 and 95 regularly on the radar gun. Throughout Leftwich's outing, the Mudcats were slow to catch up to his velocity. Ultimately, he finished five complete innings with ten strikeouts. Leftwich was dominant in his longest outing of the 2022 season. Rodriguez, it should be noted, went stride-for-stride through his four complete innings. Further Viewing Notes: It was essentially a Jheremy Vargas and Arbert Cipion show tonight for the Mudcats. Both Mudcats' runs were the product of their work at the plate. Their first run came with two outs and their second run - to take the lead in the top of the sixth - came when they lead off the inning. Without these two, the Mudcats batters were simply ineffective on the evening. It was definitely a pitching duel early and often between Rodriguez and Leftwich. Unfortunately, Alex Cornielle couldn't match Rodriguez's settle in and control as Alex walked far too man batters during his 3 2/3 innings of work. In total, Alex walked five batters in his relief stint. I don't know if there is a better defensive catcher in all the Brewers Minor League affiliates than Jeferson Quero. The ease with which he scoops pitches short of the plate or in the dirt is truly a sight to behold. He had several cool, calm, and collect scoops tonight. He is a defensive stud at such a young age. Hopefully, he can get his bat going again. Carlos Rodriguez hadn't started a game since May 7th whereas Cornielle has played the part of Starter and Middle relief seemingly throughout all of May. I don't know if there is a single thing to make of this other than: Carolina mixes up their Starters and their long relief with regularity. It is worth noting: Zack Raabe was not in the field or in the lineup in any fashion tonight... Meanwhile, recent trade acquisition Jose Acosta was officially assigned to the Carolina Mudcats. Is a High-A promotion in store? Stay tuned. I think our very own @damuellemight have the right thinking here: Appleton bound? This game truly came down to the Cornielle and his lack of strike zone control. All else spoke to and resulted in a pitching duel and the quiet bats and the many strikeouts speak to this. On to the next! A random comment regarding the Lynchburg telecast: I watch a lot of Minor League baseball games. I've mentioned the difficulty in adjusting to our own Biloxi feed from 50' up and 100' back of home plate. It takes getting used to. Lynchburg was challenging in a different way: repeated choppy cuts from the camera crew and repeated mistaken player profiles for the batters (ghost profiles from the previous hitter). I know it's Low-A, but, to all involved: I'll be looking for improvements as the series progresses.

Antico came into the evening having stolen 21 of 24 bases on the season. He promptly stole second and third, and scored on a sacrifice fly. Jarvis managed to pick off the walked first base runner with a very fast and sneaky move, but, it's fair to say, this start was indicative of Jarvis' overall outing: inconsistent, inaccurate, and pretty much a struggle. This obviously isn't what we were hoping for, but, he did manage to leave with a 5-4 lead in tact after he left the mound after 3 2/3 innings. In total, he finished his evening with five hits, four walks, and three strikeouts. Control was the issue. Here's to more dominant future outings! Grab your full game highlights here: Further Viewing Notes: Ashton McGee had his best at bat in quite some time (arguably since he opened as the starting third baseman for Biloxi in the Pensacola opening series) on his opposite field double with two down in the second inning. Nice work, Ashton! Alex Hall ultimately drove McGee in immediately after said double. It just feels so good when the bottom of the order comes through clutch. With two down? The cherry on a baseball sundae. This just in: 18-year-old Jadher Areinamo is currently a bit overmatched at the plate in High-A. This is hardly shocking and, as we know, small sample sizes mean little. I'll simply note: he is swinging at any and every off-speed or breaking pitch with two strikes. This is great exposure for the young man. Hopefully, he has many a take away from his at bats and he finds incremental improvements. This was not the dominant Jarvis we have seen in his most recent starts. He was not locating his fastball tonight and, in general, was all around the plate but not touching corners or edges. Lots of high and outside and a few in the dirt. The third inning was the stuff tonight: Tristan Peters catch in sixth inning was an absolute thing of beauty (1 minute 22 second mark above or just watch this Twitter highlight below). Perhaps, he had to out do the Ashton McGee leather? Maybe. Perhaps, the T-Rats are just really good at defense. Ethan Murray's throw out to end the eighth: What a play! With the bases juiced and a diving Zavier Warren incapable of corralling the grounder, Ethan fielded that slow-rolling ball and threw across his body to nail the runner at first. The T-Rats defense continues to impress on a nightly basis. Dominant late inning bullpen? Check. Solid defense on a night in, night out basis? Check. This is winning baseball. Tune in often. You won't be disappointed. I had to give the nod to Cam Robinson over the always noteworthy Tyler Black for the 'Tag' nod. Cam went the entire month of May unscored upon. That's what we might call 'impressive'. He gets his 10th save tonight with a clean ninth inning. All told, in the month of May: 16 innings pitched, 0 earned runs, 5 hits surrendered, 5 walks, 1 hit batter, 19 strikeouts, .100 batting average, 0.63 WHIP. Let me quote the great Adam McCalvy: "Sweet sassy molassy" I would be remiss if I didn't not the fine work of Joey Malutovich and Kent Hasler. Hasler, in particular, worked his way out of that bases loaded jam. The bullpen, as a whole, played a huge part in tonight's victory. We have a possible update (and the only one I can find on the interwebs) regarding the status of OF Carlos Rodriguez. He just received the 'Player of the Week' honors himself for the Midwest League: Press Release Here. In a cruel twist of fate, Roriguez was seen in the dugout hobbled on crutches at tonight's game. And, post game, we have this from our very own @zagski6: Having seen how Rodriguez was helped off the field in Cedar Rapids and knowing the typical history of a non-contact leg injury (the announcers claim he fell to the ground in a heap), this unfortunately measures up. What a blow this might turn out to be for such an incredibly evolving season. No official word yet. Let's keep our fingers crossed, but, I have to be honest: I'm prepared for a season ender. Sigh. *** Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Pensacola (Marlins) 5, Biloxi 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' site, game details, please visit and review: Wahoos Walk Off Shuckers in 10 Innings - Lutz Drives in Three for Biloxi A Quick Snippet: I came into tonight's tilt looking forward to seeing former Brewer prospect, Hayden Cantrelle with the Blue Wahoos. However, I had forgotten he was traded to the San Francisco Giants last week (he is now at their Double-A affiliate in Richmond, fwiw)! Good luck in your newest organization Hayden. It's been a whirlwind Minor League tour for the young Cantrelle in 2022. We wish all our prospects - current and former - all the best as they look to get to the Major League level. To this end, I may as well mention: traded on the same day as Hayden, Korry Howell is starting to heat up down in San Antonio (Padres Double-A affiliate) as he is having a very solid second-half of May - his best play of his 2022 season. Keep it going, Korry! On the other end of the spectrum, Brett Sullivan (traded with Korry for current Brewers back-up, Victor Caritini, if you recall) has cooled off considerably down in El Paso (San Diego Triple-A affiliate) in May after a scorching hot start to his season in April. We wish both Korry and Bret the best of luck for the remainder of their seasons. If there's a more beautiful Minor League setting than Pensacola, I don't know what it is. Every game is a glorious view of the ocean harbor past the outfield walls. Much like the Shuckers opening series of 2022, I found myself pondering the sheer beauty of those salt waters. Stay beautiful, Pensacola! The Shuckers had a definitive bullpen game tonight and Lucas Erceg got the nod for the early going. Ultimately, the Shuckers lost the lead late as the typically uber-reliable Harold Chirino surrendered his first (and the game-tying) home run of his 2022 season in the bottom of the eighth - the first Blue Wahoo hit since the third inning, no less. Ultimately, the Wahoos tagged Nash Walter s for the winning runs in extras. A frustrating and tough loss for the Shuckers, no doubt. Further Viewing Notes: It really looked like the Shuckers were going to break the game open in the second inning when they led the frame with four consecutive hits. They did manage to plate three in the frame after the Gabe Holt sacrifice fly, but, they ultimately stranded men on first and second base. The Shuckers finished their night 3-for-10 with RISP. The Tristan Lutz renaissance and IL resurgence continues. I've mentioned it in many a Minor League game thread recently and tonight was no different: he is seeing the ball cleanly and he is crushing the ball. His 2-rbi double in the second was an opposite field rope to the wall. It wasn't just that double though. Check out this contact on the, then, game-leading single in the top of the 10th: Jakson Reetz' 2022 season continues to amaze at the plate. After another 2-for-4 evening (with another double) we saw his batting average creep back closer to .300 yet again while his OPS stayed north of 1.000. Who could have expected this type of season? Keep it up, Jakson. We definitely see your fine work. With runners on 1st and 2nd and only one down, the Shuckers were the recipients of a beneficial caught stealing call. My goodness, I feel like I see that once in a blue moon as a Wisconsin professional sports fan. It deserves mention and a salute: thank you Ump! That call proved quite formidable as Luis Avilas struck out with a flailing swing on the next pitch and Lucas Erceg had made it through two scoreless. Speaking of which, a special mention to Erceg for two scoreless innings of work. His ERA is back below 7.00 and he's worked hard to get there. Let's keep it going in that direction, Lucas. Fine work tonight! With the bases loaded in the top of the fourth and one down, Felix Valerio struck out and Joey Wiemer flew out to right field on his first pitch. It remained 3-1 Shuckers but that was an obvious opportunity missed. Any one of those most likely runs prevents extra innings. And, so it goes in the extremely hard game of baseball. Hats off to Carlos Luna and his fine four innings of work. He was credited with an unearned run on a throwing error, but, in total he went four complete with nary a hit, three walks, and five punch outs. This was his best outing in some time. Well done, Carlos! Chirino has been dynamite for nearly all of 2022. This being said, he fell behind 3-0 to eighth inning Wahoo lead-off hitter Paul McIntosh and surrendered his first home run of his season and it was suddenly a 3-3 ball game. He proceeded to hit the next batter, Griffen Conine. But, Chirino found his way from there. He was ultimately credited with the blown save - an unfortunate stat for the Shuckers' best reliever in 2022. Things don't get any easier for the Shuckers as they face Marlins highly-touted prospect Eury Pérez in their next tilt. Eury absolutely owned Shuckers hitters his last time on the hill to the tune of five innings, no runs, and (gulps) 12 strikeouts. Let's hope the Shuckers find different results this time around. *** That's all for tonight's wrap-up. Stay tuned again tomorrow as all four of our affiliates are back at it to open the month of June. Wisconsin will be our lone matinee game kicking off at 12:10 CST when Russ Smith re-takes the mound.

These are wonderful reports to give you an ongoing glimpse of the teams, the players, and what to possibly keep track of in the week ahead. What's more? Seth's pitcher of the week for the final week in May, Justin Jarvis, got the start tonight as the Timber Rattlers returned to Fox Cities Stadium to face Peoria. Let's head to Bank of the James Stadium first, however, as our Carolina Mudcats started a road series versus Cleveland's Low-A affiliate in Lynchburg.

  9. When you give up a collective 42 runs across four games while only scoring 11, you’ve got to be grateful if you win any matchups. Thankfully, Nashville came back from a 2-1 deficit to pull out a victory and avoid an affiliate O-fer on Sunday. RHP Dylan File put in a strong performance in Nashville’s win, while C Mario Feliciano provided the game-winning single. Both men are on the Brewers’ 40-man MLB roster, so they can be quickly recalled to the big club if any need arises. Despite the lowlights, we still have enough Game Balls to go around for File, Feliciano, OF Garrett Mitchell, RHP Carlos Luna, and CF/SS Brice Turang.

Carolina and Lynchburg tied at ten hits apiece, but that was the only silver lining in this one. RHP Miguel Segura started for the second time this week but suffered his first loss in his ninth organizational start. LHP Pablo Garabitos, LHP Karlos Morales, and RHP Trevor Tietz had encouraging performances before a ninth-inning nightmare. RHPs Brandon Ramey and Lun Zhao tried to cover the ninth inning but only managed to throw 30 strikes in 63 pitches, walking six batters and throwing three wild pitches. In the ninth inning, the team gave up nine runs (eight earned), extending Lynchburg’s lead to 15-1. In addition, results in the field were also a struggle, with the squad committing three errors. However, we always look for the bright sides, and here they are: By stringing together three runs of their own in the bottom of the 9th inning, on two doubles, a single, and two sacrifice flies, hopefully, this awakens the Mudcat bats for the next series Micah Bello’s fourth-inning,, home run had to feel good as he tried to escape a mini-slump Tietz lowered his ERA from 16.62 to 12.71 in his second straight solid appearance C Jeferson Quero threw out a base stealer in the first inning, then was untested the rest of the night Performances of Note: Jesus Chirinos – 2-4, double, RBI Zack Raabe – 2-3, double, sac fly, RBI Micah Bello – 1-3, HR, sac fly, 2 RBI Arbert Cipion – 1-4, double Miguel Segura (Loss) – 3 2/3 innings, 4 runs, 5 hits, 4 walks, 2 Ks Pablo Garabitos – 1 1/3 innings, zero runs, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 K Trevor Tietz – 1 1/3 innings, zero runs, zero hits, zero walks, 1 K Three other relievers – 2 2/3 innings, 11 runs, 4 hits, 7 walks, 1 HBP, 3 wild pitches, 4 Ks This week’s outlook: The Mudcats (7-8) will go on the road to face Down East (7-8), whom we swept in three games at home to start the season.

Quad Cities got their revenge after suffering five straight defeats to the Timber Rattlers throughout the week. The River Bandits even surpassed Wisconsin in run differential (39-32 for the series), although I’m sure they’d rather have the five wins. Every Timber Rattler pitcher was hit hard in this one, with six different hurlers each giving up an earned run and no pitcher lasting more than two innings. RHP Justin Jarvis had the honor of starting two games in the series, but perhaps this shows that he needed more rest (five runs, seven batters reached, and one balk – all in two innings of work). Despite scoring only one run, there are some positives to not from the offensive side, where OF Tristan Peters continues his solid run (a triple and single boosting his OPS to .869) , and Wes Clarke also keeps hitting (a double; OPS now .829). C Darrien Miller’s bat has cooled off (0-for-4 in this one), but he put the ball in play each time up. He also threw out a baserunner in the first inning, though two others completed steals later. Here he makes a tough catch while battling the wind in foul territory: Performances of Note: Ethan Murray – 2-3, double, RBI Tristan Peters – 2-3, triple Wes Clarke – 1-3, double, walk Justin Jarvis (Loss) – 2 innings, 5 runs, 4 hits, 3 walks, 1 wild pitch, 2 Ks Five relievers – 7 innings, 13 runs (12 earned), 12 hits, 7 walks, 1 HBP, 7 Ks This week’s outlook: Wisconsin (11-4) hits the road for six games against the Peoria Chiefs (7-8), whom the Rattlers defeated two games to one to start the season. Expect LHP Russell Smith to start the opener, looking to bounce back from a rough last appearance. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Birmingham 7, Biloxi 3 Box Score / Game Lo Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Barons Too Much for Shuckers as Biloxi Drops Finale 7-3 Every game of the Biloxi-Birmingham series felt like a see-saw boxing match, with major highs and lows, unfortunately ending with a low in five of the six games. In a repeat of Tuesday’s contest, starting pitchers RHP Carlos Luna and RHP Davis Martin held opposing hitters mainly in check, except for a Birmingham home run and Luis Urias’ RBI single. However, both exited the 1-1 affair after four innings, giving a reprieve which hitters immediately took advantage of. Biloxi had the first chance against the Barons’ bullpen, with a Urias walk and Garrett Mitchell homer giving the team a 3-1 lead, which we were hopeful would hold up. However, Shuckers’ reliever RHP Robbie Hitt couldn’t escape a jam of his own making, giving up four runs on four singles and two hit-by-pitches, exiting with Biloxi down 5-3. RHP Luis Contreras managed to strand two runners that inning to keep it close. Cam Devanney tried to spark a rally with a lead-off sixth-inning double and another single in the eighth inning, but the Shuckers couldn’t build off it. Performances of Note: Cam Devanney – 2-4, double Garrett Mitchell – 1-4, HR, walk, 2 RBIs Luis Urias – 1-4, RBI Ashton McGee – 1-4, double Carlos Luna – 4 innings, 1 run, 4 hits, 1 walk, 3 Ks Robbie Hitt (Loss) – 2/3 innings, 4 runs, 4 hits, 2 HBP, 2 Ks JT Hintzen – 1 inning, zero runs, zero hits, zero walks, 1 K This week’s outlook: Biloxi (9-6) returns home to face Pensacola (6-9), with LHP Andy Otero likely getting the first start in the series on Tuesday. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 3, Charlotte 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details: Sounds Clip Knights in Front of Another Sellout Crowd at First Horizon Park. Solid pitching carried the Sounds to a fifth win in their six-game series against Charlotte. RHP Luis Perdomo started after six straight relief appearances, his first time starting a game since August 2020 with the San Diego Padres. Perhaps Mr. Perdomo took his foot off the gas a bit, as he didn’t record a strikeout in two innings of work. He did yield an earned run on two second-inning hits, but that RBI double involved an injury to more left-field Garrett Whitley. Despite the injury, Nashville managed to throw out that runner at home, except for the whole ball squirting out aspect. Thankfully, Whitley walked off under his own power while Pablo Reyes entered the game at third base, and Weston Wilson moved to left field. Nashville struck back in the third inning, picking up two runs, with Brice Turang knocking in Mark Mathias with a gground-ruledouble and then a Wilson RBI groundout scoring Reyes. RHP Dylan File took over in the third inning and had his best performance of the year, throwing 52 strikes in 76 pitches over five innings and only giving up one run. Unfortunately, that seventh inning single tied the game 2-2, so File couldn’t earn the win. The game was won in the bottom of the eighth inning, thanks to Wilson and David Dahl singles, followed by an RBI single for Mario Feliciano. The 23-year-old Feliciano is obviously still trying to figure out AAA pitching while improving as a catcher. Still, there are positive signs as evidenced by hitting doubles in consecutive games and throwing out Charlotte’s only attempted steal of the night. RHP Pete Strzelecki and Trevor Kelley only allowed one baserunner to reach as they covered the eighth and ninth innings for the win and save, respectively. Performances of Note: Brice Turang – 2-4, double, RBI Mario Feliciano – 2-4, double, RBI Mark Mathias – 2-3, SB Pablo Reyes – 1-2 Weston Wilson – 1-4, RBI Luis Perdomo – 2 innings, 1 run, 2 hits, 1 walk Dylan File – 5 innings, 1 run, 4 hits, 1 walk, 4 Ks Pete Strzelecki (Win) – 1 inning, zero runs, zero hits, zero walks Trevor Kelley (Save) – 1 inning, zero runs, zero hits, 1 walk This week’s outlook: Nashville (13-5) will be nearby the Brewers this week, traveling to face St. Paul (10-7). RHP Jason Alexander will likely start the opener, looking to stretch his record to 4-0. We hope that you enjoy the Minor League Link Report. Enjoy your travel day, gentlemen!

  10. Nashville won 3-2, capping off a 5-1 series win. Biloxi did the opposite, falling 7-3 to lose five of six games in the week. The Timber Rattlers and Mudcats both got thumped. When you give up a collective 42 runs across four games while only scoring 11, you’ve got to be grateful if you win any matchups. Thankfully, Nashville came back from a 2-1 deficit to pull out a victory and avoid an affiliate O-fer on Sunday. RHP Dylan File put in a strong performance in Nashville’s win, while C Mario Feliciano provided the game-winning single. Both men are on the Brewers’ 40-man MLB roster, so they can be quickly recalled to the big club if any need arises. Despite the lowlights, we still have enough Game Balls to go around for File, Feliciano, OF Garrett Mitchell, RHP Carlos Luna, and CF/SS Brice Turang. Transactions: None Game Action: Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Lynchburg 15, Carolina 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats’ website, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Hillcats Win Series with 15-4 Finale Victory. Carolina and Lynchburg tied at ten hits apiece, but that was the only silver lining in this one. RHP Miguel Segura started for the second time this week but suffered his first loss in his ninth organizational start. LHP Pablo Garabitos, LHP Karlos Morales, and RHP Trevor Tietz had encouraging performances before a ninth-inning nightmare. RHPs Brandon Ramey and Lun Zhao tried to cover the ninth inning but only managed to throw 30 strikes in 63 pitches, walking six batters and throwing three wild pitches. In the ninth inning, the team gave up nine runs (eight earned), extending Lynchburg’s lead to 15-1. In addition, results in the field were also a struggle, with the squad committing three errors. However, we always look for the bright sides, and here they are: By stringing together three runs of their own in the bottom of the 9th inning, on two doubles, a single, and two sacrifice flies, hopefully, this awakens the Mudcat bats for the next series Micah Bello’s fourth-inning,, home run had to feel good as he tried to escape a mini-slump Tietz lowered his ERA from 16.62 to 12.71 in his second straight solid appearance C Jeferson Quero threw out a base stealer in the first inning, then was untested the rest of the night Performances of Note: Jesus Chirinos – 2-4, double, RBI Zack Raabe – 2-3, double, sac fly, RBI Micah Bello – 1-3, HR, sac fly, 2 RBI Arbert Cipion – 1-4, double Miguel Segura (Loss) – 3 2/3 innings, 4 runs, 5 hits, 4 walks, 2 Ks Pablo Garabitos – 1 1/3 innings, zero runs, 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 K Trevor Tietz – 1 1/3 innings, zero runs, zero hits, zero walks, 1 K Three other relievers – 2 2/3 innings, 11 runs, 4 hits, 7 walks, 1 HBP, 3 wild pitches, 4 Ks This week’s outlook: The Mudcats (7-8) will go on the road to face Down East (7-8), whom we swept in three games at home to start the season.
