Pitchers who rake got a new member tonight and the Milwaukee Brewers minor league teams had themselves a 3-0 night!
Triple-A San Antonio
San Antonio Missions (15-9) vs. Iowa Cubs (14-10)
The Missions opened the first game of a four game series with the Cubs on Monday with a 4-3 victory!
Eight Missions had a hit, but no hit was bigger than pitcher Adrian Houser’s solo home run in the third inning to get San Antonio on the board.
Houser, who recently was optioned back to Triple-A, was strong through five innings, allowing two runs on three hits with five strikeouts.
The Mission book ended the scoring with a solo shot by Lucas Erceg, his only hit of the night.
The only hitter to not get a hit was top prospect Keston Hiura, who was 0-4 with three strikeouts. How often do we see that?
The Missions will look to keep the wins rolling Tuesday.
Biloxi Shuckers (12-13) vs. Chattanooga Lookouts (11-12)
After dropping the first four games, Shuckers put up 14 runs to win the finale against the Lookouts.
It took the offense a few innings to heat up, but the Shuckers put 13 runs on the board in the last four innings.
It all started with Weston Wilson’s two run home run in the sixth. He would end the evening with two hits, four RBIs, and two runs scored. Williams got the scoring going in the seventh, as he doubled in a run and the Shuckers put five on the board.
Dillon Thomas picked up two runs on a double, his only hit of the night. Trent Grisham also drove in two runs on his only hit on the evening. Max McDowell added a two-run homer in the ninth to add insult to injury.
