It was a rough one throughout the Milwaukee Brewers organization tonight. You might want to just scroll down to Carolina.
Note: You have been warned.
San Antonio Missions (5-4) vs. Nashville Sounds (3-6)
Just as the Missions looked like they were taking care of business, the bullpen gave up seven runs in the top of the eighth, ruining Aaron Wilkerson’s gem by the score 7-3.
As mentioned, Wilkerson was superb Friday night. He tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowed just two hits, and only gave up a walk. Jay Jackson had another strong outing pitching a scoreless 1 1/3 innings with three strike outs. Then with two outs in the top of the eight, Rick Sweet called for Donnie Hart to shut down the Sounds and finish the inning.
Hart promptly allowed a double and back-to-back singles to make it 2-1. The Missions then called for Taylor Williams to get the last out. Williams walked Eli White to load the bases. A throwing error by Mauricio Dubon scored two runs making it 3-2 and kept the inning going. Andy Ibanez singled in a run to make it 4-2 and with two, the Sounds put a nail in it with a three-run home run by Matt Davidson. The Missions ended the bleeding when former Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jett Bandy grounded out to Lucas Erceg.
Nice part about baseball is there is always a game tomorrow and they will do it again Saturday night.
Biloxi Shuckers (4-4) vs. Montgomery Biscuits (4-3)
Another rough night for the Shuckers as the drop their second game in a row against the Biscuits 7-1.
Trent Grisham went 2-for-4 with a double from the lead off position. Blake Allemand was 2-for-3. Second baseman Bruce Caldwell drove in the only run for the Shuckers, a ground out that scored Patrick Leonard in the fifth.
Shuckers will try and even the series tomorrow evening.
Class A Advanced
Carolina Mudcats (6-2) vs. Wilmington Blue Rocks (5-3)
It seems like every night we are talking about walk offs or rain outs and Friday night was the latter.
Mudcats will play a double header tomorrow against the Blue Rocks. Don’t worry fans, Saturday night’s game will still feature the “Micro Brews” alternative uniform and replica jersey give away. Combine this with the Lorenzo Cain Bobblehead and you have two unique fan giveaways.
Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (4-4) vs. Quad City River Bandits (5-3)
The Rattlers hoped for a old showing at Miller Park. However theme of the night for the Milawukee Brewers farm teams was “One Bad Inning”. It was no different in Milwaukee as the Rattlers lost 8-3 to Quad City.
Tied 2-2 heading into the sixth inning the River Bandits were able to put a five spot up in the board. Seven of the eight runs came off Aaron Ashby as he struggled in his 3 2/3 innings in relief.
The one bright spot for the Rattlers was catcher David Fry who went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a run. The rest of the team went 1-for-26.
Go home, take a shower, wash off today and let’s get ready for a new day.
