There were good wins for Biloxi and San Antonio highlight the evening. Let’s see what else happened throughout the Milwaukee Brewers organization on Monday…

Triple-A

San Antonio Missions (10-8) vs. Nashville Sounds (5-13)

Troy Stokes Jr. and Tyrone Taylor led the offense as the Missions got the series victory and a 5-0 win tonight for Corbin Burnes.

Burnes, who was recently demoted to San Antonio was sharp in his three innings of work, gave up just one hit and struck out three. He did have some location issues giving up three walks but looked good in his first Pacific Coast League action.

The bullpen quintet of Michael Tonkin, Miguel Sanchez, Tristan Archer, Deolis Guerra, and Jay Jackson held Nashville to just three hits, one walk and struck out nine in six innings.

Stokes Jr., who missed action early in the season with an injury, was 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in the second inning and stole a base. The big news of the day for “Playboy Troy” is that he will be honored on Thursday with his Minor League Baseball Gold Glove during a pregame ceremony.

Taylor had a three hit night including a double in the second he would later score on.

Milwaukee Brewers top prospect Keston Hiura had a solo home run in the third inning, his  fifth of the season. Lucas Erceg drove in his 11th RBI on the season and Tyler Saladino drove in his 15th RBI on a sac fly.

Double-A

Biloxi Shuckers (10-8) vs. Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (5-13)

The Shuckers got the series victory with the 7-1 win on Monday, now they will try for the series sweep.

Braden Webb earned his first victory of the season after going five innings, allowing one run and no hits. The bullpen combination of Justin Topa, Luke Barker, and Nate Griep held Jacksonville to zero runs the final four innings and allowed just one hit in the ninth inning, breaking up the no hitter.

The offense managed seven runs on seven hits, including a two-run home run by Weston Wilson in the third inning. Wilson finished the game with three RBIs and now has eight on the season.

Luis Aviles Jr. had a three hit evening, with a double and scored twice. Michael O’Neill drew two walks scoring both times he was on base. Cooper Hummel has a pitch hit single that scored two in the sixth inning.

Trent Grisham and C.J. Hinojosa both had one hit, but each stole their first base of the season and scored a run.

Mudcats were off on Monday but start a three game series with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans starting Tuesday.
