Milwaukee Brewers top prospect Keston Hiura is heating up. I don’t have to say much more than that. Let’s see what else happened in the Brewers organization on April 26th


San Antonio Missions (13-8) vs. Oklahoma City Dodgers (7-14)

The Missions continued on their winning ways against the Dodgers taking game three of the series 4-3, their fifth win in a row and six of the last seven.

Keston Hiura was a stud tonight. He went 3-for-3 with two home runs, a double, three RBIs and two runs and reach base a fourth time with a walk. Hiura now owns a .316 batting average, 1.07 OPS, has seven home runs, and 16 RBIs on the season.

David Freitas and Tyrone Taylor each had two hits on the evening. Jacob Nottingham and Mauricio Dubon each had singles, the only other hits in the game for San Antonio.

Zack Brown got his first victory of the season, going five innings, allowing one run and struck out five hitters. Michael Tonkin, Deolis Guerra, and Jay Jackson did fantastic out of the pen, pitching four shutout innings, with just one hit combined. Donnie Hart struggled, giving up two earned on three hits before being pulled for Jackson.

The Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate looks to continue the winning ways tomorrow against the Dodgers.


Biloxi Shuckers (11-11) vs. Chattanooga Lookouts (9-11)

The Milwaukee Brewers Double-A affiliate dropped their third game in a row, second straight against the Lookouts in a 7-6 loss.

The Shuckers lead early after putting up two runs in the second inning, but Trey Supak struggled giving up four runs in the bottom of the second. Supak went four innings, allowing six total runs and ten hits compared to just one strike out.

Devin Williams, Angel Perdomo, and Aaron Kurcz kept the Shuckers close, shutting down the Lookouts for four innings.

Luis Aviles Jr., C.J. Hinojosa, Trent Grisham, and Weston Wilson had the offense clicking, collecting two hits each and driving in five runs and scoring four times. Michael O’Neill was the only other Shucker with a hit, however it was Dillon Thomas, who was hit by a pitch, that scored the tying run to make it a 6-6 game going into the 9th inning.

However in the bottom of the ninth, Justin Topa gave up a bases loaded walk to pick up the loss.

Shuckers look to get back on track tomorrow against the Lookouts.

Class A Advanced

Carolina Mudcats (12-10) vs. Potomac Nationals (9-13)

A game that had 22 runs and 27 hits was exciting down to the last at bat as the Mudcats come back fell short 12-10.

Joantgel Segovia has the hot bat with three hits, including a double and had three RBIs. Rob Henry has one hit but it was big two run homer, and drove in another run for a total of three RBIs on the night.

Pat McInerney had two hits and three runs scored with Ryan Aguilar, Mario Feliciano, and Payton Henry each had singles that drove in a run.

Once again in a game that had 22 runs and 27 hits, pitching wasn’t pretty, the four pitchers used by the Mudcats allowed 12 runs, 18 hits, three walks and had just seven K’s.

The Mudcats will continue the series with the Nationals over the weekend.

Class A

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (7-11) vs. Cedar Rapids Kernals (9-10)

Great double header win for the T-Rats on Friday night, taking game one 2-0, and game two, 2-1.

The Rattlers just needed four hits, singles from Brice Turang and Yeison Coca and two hits for Gabriel Garcia, a single and double, to win the game.

The reason they didn’t need the hits was because Adam Hill was electric in the outing, going six innings with one hit and had a career high eight strike outs. Michael Mediavilla came in and closed the game out in the seventh to get the save.

In game two, Turang and Garcia were joined by Connor McVey to lead the offense, with six hits. Jesus Lujano drove in the first run on his only hit and Garcia drove in the second run to take the lead in the eighth.

dark. Next. What happened in the Minors on April 24th?

Scott Sunitsch, Logan Gillaspie, and Robbie Hitt pitched well giving up one run on seven hits and struck out 12 in the seven inning affair.

Action for the Milwaukee Brewers Single-A affiliate will continue the series over the weekend.
