There was lots of action this weekend for the Milwaukee Brewers affiliates. Let’s see who did what over the weekend of June 22nd and 23rd…

Triple-A

San Antonio Missions (47-28) vs. Omaha Storm Chasers (36-39)

The Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A affiliate dropped one game over the weekend and had another suspended til Monday.

On Saturday, San Antonio looked like they had another win in the books then the StormChasers put up two in the eighth to take the 6-5 victory over the Missions.

Trent Grisham hit his second home run in Triple A in the second, and Keston Hiura did what he does. Hiura hit his 17th HR of the season in the fifth.

Hiura finished the game with two hits while Nate Orf put up two hits himself.

Sunday the game was suspended in the fifth tied 7-7 because of a rain delay.

Grisham hit a two-run homer in the first inning quickly followed by a grand slam by, you guessed it, Hiura, in the second. Lucas Erceg hit a solo shot in the fourth to make the score 7-4. Omaha fought back to tie it before the rain came.

Zack Brown is still the pitcher of record, going 4 2/3 innings with seven runs on nine hits.

Double-A

Biloxi Shuckers (43-31) – Mississippi Braves (35-38)

The Milwaukee Brewers Double-A affiliate split the weekend, winning Saturday but dropped Sunday against the Braves.

Dillon Thomas has a strong weekend, going 3-for-5 with a home run, double, three RBIs, three walks and scored two runs.

Patrick Leonard had a three-run home run on Saturday, and Dylan File got his first win in Biloxi on Saturday, going six innings, allowing one run and struck out six.

Michael O’Neill came back down to Biloxi and collected three hits over the weekend.

Trey Supak picked up the loss on Sunday going six innings, giving up five runs on seven hits and struck out five. This was also Supak’s first lose in more than a month.

Biloxi finishes the series tomorrow against the Braves.

Class A Advanced

Carolina Mudcats (42-31) vs. Potomac Nationals (31-40)

After a rough start to the series the Mudcats have won three in a row against the Nationals.

On Saturday the Mudcats had nine runs on 13 hits. Payton Henry led the way by going 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI. He also collected his 15th double of the season. Ryan Aguilar, Tristen Lutz, and Julio Garcia each had two hits.

Nelson Hernandez picked up the win, going five innings, giving up three runs allowed.

Sunday belonged to Noah Zavolas, the “throw in” to the Ben Gamel / Domingo Santana swap from the off season. Zavolas went nine shut out innings, allowing just two hits and struck out 11 Nationals.

Aguilar gave him the offense he needed, going 3-for-3 with a home run, double, scoring twice, and driving in two runs.
