Milwaukee Brewers Minors: Trent Grisham homers in Triple A debut
Almost every team in the Milwaukee Brewers organization is back to action after the mid-season break
San Antonio Missions (47-26) vs. Omaha Storm Chasers (34-39)
Omaha jumped out early, but the Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate came back to win the game 7-5 on the power of a three-run home run by Trent Grisham in his Triple A debut.
After being promoted, Grisham went 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Cory Spangenberg, Nate Orf, and Jacob Nottingham all looked good with two hits apiece. The Missions had a total of 13 hits and every player got a hit.
Thomas Jankins got his sixth win of the season, going five innings, and striking out four while giving up three runs. Angel Perdomo struggled in his only inning of work. Perdomo has gone five games without giving up a run.
The Missions continue the series tomorrow.
Biloxi Shuckers (41-30) – Mississippi Braves (34-36)
Like the Missions, the Shuckers has 13 hits and scored a lot of runs, but pitching struggled and gave up 11 runs in the loss to the Braves.
Dillon Thomas had three hits including a triple in the contest. C.J. Hinosoja had two hits in the game including a double.
Pitching struggled tonight as four of the six pitchers gave up a run. Cody Ponce looked sharp in garbage time, pitching a scoreless ninth inning.
Drew Rasmussen who started the season hot has run into some issues lately, going 2 2/3 innings while giving up four runs. He has a 5.40 ERA giving up 18 runs in his last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers are taking their time with him and letting him work his way back to full strength so stretches like this might be expected.
Class A Advanced
Carolina Mudcats (39-31) vs. Potomac Nationals (31-37)
It was not a good start to the second half of the season for the Mudcats, dropping the series opener against the Nationals 15-2.
Rob Henry, Payton Henry, and Devin Hairston each had two runs with doubles for each player but none of the hits led to runs.
Braden Webb pitched a scoreless inning to start the game but that was the best pitching performance for the Mudcats. The bullpen gave up 15 runs on 17 hits over eight innings.
The nice part is that tomorrow is a new day for the Milwaukee Brewers High-A affiliate.
Wisconsin TimberRattlers (32-38) vs. Clinton LumberKings (33-37)
In front of a packed house, the Wisconsin UdderTuggers got the win tonight against the LumberKings 5-2.
Brice Turang and David Fry led the way with two hits each at the top of the order, while Je’Von Ward got two hits at the bottom of the order. They also accounted for the only hits the UdderTuggers would get on Thursday. Fry hit his ninth home run of the season.
Justin Jarvis got his first win of the season, throwing seven innings with just two runs allowed while striking out five. The bullpen duo of Victor Castaneda and Anthony Bender pitched great in relief.
Rocky Moumtain Vibes (4-2)
No game tonight for the Vibes on Thursday.
