Three of the Brewers’ minor league affiliates had games to play on Mother’s Day and two of the three celebrated by picking up wins. One Brewer prospect playing in his first game in almost a year after returning from injury celebrated the holiday in style.
San Antonio Missions (21-16) vs New Orleans Baby Cakes (19-18)
The Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate tried pulling off a Mother’s Day comeback with a big six-run inning that would give the team their first lead of the day. But New Orleans tied it back up in the bottom of the inning and another in the tenth to walk it off and hand San Antonio a 10-9 loss.
Corey Ray led the game off with a solo home run, his third home run in as many games, and finished 3-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Mauricio Dubon went 2-for-5 with three RBIs, two runs scored, and the solo home run that started the eighth inning rally. Eight Missions players registered a hit in the game.
Biloxi Shuckers (18-19) vs Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (13-24)
The Shuckers collected back to back home runs in the first inning and never looked back in earning a 7-1 win over the Jumbo Shrimp.
Jake Gatewood made his first appearance since undergoing season-ending ACL surgery last June and decided to announce his presence with a bang, swatting a two-run homer on the third pitch he saw. Weston Wilson continued his hot hitting with a solo jack of his own to go back to back with Gatewood and help set the tone for the day.
Wilson added his second homer of the day in the ninth and now has six hits in his last eight games. Johan Belisario pitched a solid six innings, giving up just a run and four hits to improve to 2-0 on the season.
Class A Advanced
Carolina Mudcats (22-14) vs Myrtle Beach Pelicans (12-25)
Eight out of nine Mudcat hitters registered a hit and six scored at least one run as Carolina completed a three-game sweep of the Pelicans with a 7-2 win on Sunday.
Tristen Lutz started off the scoring with a run-scoring double in the first inning to stretch his hitting streak to five game and also give himself hits in nine of his last ten games. Devin Hairston added an RBI double of his own, the first hit of a 3-for-4 day, to put the Mudcats up for good.
Dylan File continued his turnaround from his rough start to the season with two runs given up over seven innings, evening out his record at 3-3. With another no-walk outing on Sunday, File has given up just one walk over his last five starts while striking out 27. His K/BB ratio is now 42/3 on the season.
The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers got to celebrate Mother’s Day off the field as they had a scheduled off day on Sunday.
The Milwaukee Brewers Class-A affiliate will resume play at home on Monday against the 21-15 Kane County Cougars.
