So much to talk about in Tuesday’s Milwaukee Brewers Minor League system… a walk off win, a double header sweep and a shutout (not a good one though).

Triple-A

San Antonio Missions (4-2) vs. Memphis Redbirds (2-3)

Let’s walk off Missions!

Leave it to Mauricio Dubon (5th) to hit a ninth inning, two out, ground ball single to score two runs in a come from behind 6-5 win against the Memphis Redbirds.

The ninth inning rally started when Lucas Erceg (8th) took a walk to get on base. Erceg had a great night going 2-3 with two home runs, three runs, three RBIs and a walk.

After a Jacob Nottingham (16th) strike out, Jake Hager collected a pinch hit single to right field. After a Corey Ray (2nd) struck out, the stage was set for Dubon.

The single was Dubon’s only hit of the night but it was a big one. The Missions only had seven total hits while striking out 11 times including three strikeouts for Ray.

Adrian Houser (15th) got the no-decision after going six scoreless innings and striking out six.

Jeremy Jeffress pinched just one inning in his rehab stint, allowing three runs on four hits and striking out two. He will most likely pitch again tomorrow and, barring any setbacks, will move back to the major leagues very soon.

The Missions will play game two of the three game series tomorrow.

Double-A

Biloxi Shuckers (3-2) had the day off Tuesday. They travel to Montgomery to start a series with the Biscuits.

Class A Advanced

Carolina Mudcats (4-2) vs. Potomac Nationals (3-3)

Double header, no problem for the Mudcats as they swept the day and got the series victory against Potomac.

In game one, the Mudcats jumped to an early five run lead and never looked back, winning 7-2 in seven innings. Catcher Payton Henry (10th) hit his second home run of the season going 1-4 with two RBIs. Outfielder Rob Henry led the Cats with two hits, including a double, scoring two runs and driving in one.

Starting pitcher Christian Taugner was stellar in his season debut, going six innings, giving up one run on three hits.

The Mudcats handled business in game two winning 6-0 in another seven inning game.

Four players had two hits (Tristen Lutz (4th), Payton Henry (10th), Mario Feliciano (14th) and Devin Hairston, and all but one Mudcat collected a hit. Outfielder Joantgel Segovia hit his first home run of the season and leads the team in batting average (.375) and hits (9).

On top of his two hits, Feliciano collected two RBIs and stole his second base this year.

It was The Matt Show on the mound, as Matt Smith pitched great going four scoreless, striking out five but Matt Hardy got the win throwing a scoreless fifth.

The Mudcats close out the series against the Nationals tomorrow.

Class A

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (4-2) vs. Peoria Chiefs (2-4)

The bad and ugly of the Milwaukee Brewers minor leagues Tuesday night was the Timber Rattlers 9-0 loss to the Chiefs.

Hitters went 4-31 with no walks and didn’t collect their first hit until the sixth.

Scott Sunitsch pitched well in his first game this season but not in his second game. He went 3.2 innings allowing five runs on nine hits. Logan Gillaspie didn’t fare much better, going 1.1 innings with four runs allowed.

Is Jimmy Nelson close to returning?. dark. Next

The Milwaukee Brewers affiliates for the most part are off to a strong start to the 2019 season.
