Scoring the only run on a passed ball… well that was how the Shuckers won on Thursday night, 1-0.

Cooper Hummel had two hits, including a double, while five other Shuckers got a single. The only run was scored by C.J. Hinosoja, who was a pinch runner after Alexander Alvarez hit a single in the eighth.

Trey Supak, Devin Williams, Daniel Brown, and Nate Griep were fantastic, allowing just three hits and striking out 11. Williams got his league high fourth win while Griep got his fifth save, second in the Southern League.

Catcher Payton Henry picked up his 23rd RBI of the season on a single in the third. He is now fourth in the Carolina League in RBIs, and is hitting .275 with an OPS of .800. Rob Henry had two RBIs on his single in fifth and reached base on two walks as well.

Nelson Hernandez picked up his fourth win of the season, going six innings, striking out six and giving up the only two Red Sox hits. Hernandez joins fellow Mudcat Matt Hardy at the top of the Carolina League wins column.

TimberRattlers took the series but dropped the finale against Lansing 10-4.

Adam Hill gave up four runs in four innings to pick up his second loss of the season.

The bullpen didn’t really do much better after that, giving up six runs in the last four innings.

Next. What happened in the Minors on 5/1?. dark

Conner McVey had a big game, getting his first home run of the season in the fourth inning. David Fry, Chad McClanahan, and Jesus Lujano each had doubles but only drove in one run.

Tomorrow the Mudcats take on the Great Lake Loons at Dow Diamond.
