It feels good to see victories for the Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A and Double-A teams, but Travis Shaw was the big story on May 31st. Let’s take a look at every level of the organization…
San Antonio Missions (35-21) vs. Omaha Storm Chasers (26-30)
The Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate got back to their winning ways with a 3-0 win tonight against the Storm Chasers.
Travis Shaw was the story tonight. He went 3-for-3 with a home run as he prepares to move back to the major league roster. He is now hitting .276 during his rehab assignment.
Aaron Wilkerson looked amazing again on the mound. He threw seven innings with just one hit allowed and six K’s. Donnie Hart, Jacob Barnes, and Angel Perdomo were great in two innings of relief work. The trio allowed two hits and struck out two courtesy of Perdomo.
Our old friend, “Maverick” Brett Phillips, went 1-for-3 with the Storm Chasers.
Biloxi Shuckers (31-23) vs. Tennessee Smokies (26-27)
Shuckers score eight runs in the last three innings to pull out the 8-5 victory against the Smokies. The Milwaukee Brewers Double-A affiliate also captured the series win.
First the bad, Drew Rasmussen, who has been almost unhittable all season, had his worst outing of the season. The other Pride of Puyallup, second to Zach Davies, gave up four runs in three innings against Tennessee. He did have four strike outs and continues to look like he is doing okay after a pair of Tommy John surgeries.
Scoring was at a premium until the sixth when Trent Grisham scored on a Patrick Leonard hit that was scored a fielding error. Grisham repaid the favor, driving in a pair on a double in the seventh and scored again on another Leonard hit.
Luis Aviles Jr. drove in a run in the eight and then scored on a Grisham homer.
Grisham was 3-for-5 with a double and home run. Leonard had a pair of hits and Cooper Hummel reached base on three walks.
It’s worth mentioning that one of our favorite minor leaguers, Joantgel Segovia, moved up to Biloxi this week and has two hits in four games so far in Double A. He is currently hit .286 with a double and scored twice.
Class A Advanced
Carolina Mudcats (29-24) vs. Winston-Salem Dash (29-23)
Well power outage is a new one, but that is how the Mudcats game was postponed. There’s a double-header scheduled for Saturday against the Dash.
Wisconsin TimberRattlers (25-28) vs. Peoria Chiefs (23-30)
This was a tough loss for the TimberRattlers, dropping game one of the series at home, 3-0.
Logan Gillaspie picked up the tough luck loss, going six innings, allow just two runs and seven strike outs. Logan owns a 3.53 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the season.
