Milwaukee Brewers Minors: Hager shines as Missions fall in Vegas
It was a tough game for San Antonio, and a good win for Biloxi. The Mudcats got rained out and TimberRattlers will figure out the Snappers some day in the Milwaukee Brewers Minor League Review for 6/10
San Antonio Missions (40-25) vs. Las Vegas Aviators (31-30)
In the late late game, maybe not worth mentioning… let’s start with the ugly… the final score was 17-7.
The really bad, Aaron Wilkerson was roughed up for six runs in 2/3 of an inning. The bullpen wasn’t much better as Alex Wilson was the only relief pitcher to not allow a run.
The good, Jack Hager and Cory Spangenberg each hit a home run. Mauricio Dubon, Troy Stokes Jr., and Jacob Nottingham had doubles. David Freitas drove in a run in the ninth.
The bright spot of the game was Hager who had three runs, three hits and three RBIs on the evening. He was just a double shy of the cycle in front of his home town crowd.
The Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate will head back to San Antonio to welcome the Tacoma Rainiers next.
Biloxi Shuckers (39-25) vs. Pensacola Blue Wahoos (36-28)
Southern League Player of the week Trent Grisham launched two home runs leading the Shuckers to the 9-7 win, their fifth in a row.
Dillon Thomas has two hits including a triple and drove in two runs. Jake Gatewood and Wes Wilson each had two RBIs in the game. Alex Alvarez drove in a run on his only hit of the game.
Patrick Leonard had a game. He was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a stolen base.
Cameron Roegner went five innings, giving up three while striking out seven. Drew Rasmussen got the victory but was roughed up in two innings of work. He gave up four runs while allowing three hits. Southern League All-Star Nate Griep picked up his 14th save of the season.
The Milwaukee Brewers Double-A affiliate will go for the five game sweep against the Blue Wahoos on Tuesday.
Class A Advanced
Carolina Mudcats (35-27) vs. Frederick Keys (28-33)
Monday’s game was postponed due to rain, look for the doubleheader recap tomorrow.
Wisconsin TimberRattlers (29-34) vs. Beloit Snappers (25-37)
One day the Milwaukee Brewers Single-A affiliate will figure out those Snappers, as they dropped the final four games of the series with a 4-1 loss.
Je’Von Ward and Leugim Castillo led the way with two hits a piece. Ward scored the only run for the Rattlers on a hit by Castillo, and that was basically all the offense.
Scott Sunitsch picked up his sixth loss of the season going 6 1/3 with just two runs allowed on three hits. He struck out six and pitched well in defeat.
