It was a crazy night down on the farm for the Milwaukee Brewers affiliates. Let’s take a deep dive into everything that went down on June 27th…
San Antonio Missions (50-30) vs. Round Rock Express (46-33)
As you have already read and most likely aware, just before game time both Keston Hiura and Tyler Saladino we’re pulled from the field. Speculation grew and reports answered, both are moving to the Milwaukee Brewers roster while Travis Shaw was sent down and Hernan Perez was designated for assignment.
As for the game, wow is a great way to describe the combined one hitter against the Express in a 3-0 victory, the Missions 50th of the season.
The offense put up three runs on eight hits, led by Lucas Erceg’s solo shot in the third and Jake Hager’s in the seventh. The third run came courtesy of Nate Orf’s sixth inning single that scored David Freitas.
Erceg’s bat is starting to pick up with seven hits in the last seven games, including three home runs and five RBIs.
Biloxi Shuckers (45-33) – Pensacola Blue Wahoos (41-37)
Dylan File shut down the Wahoos, going 5 2/3 innings of one run ball to get the 5-1 win for the Milwaukee Brewers Double-A affiliate.
The Shuckers and Blue Wahoos do it all again tomorrow.
Class A Advanced
Carolina Mudcats (43-34) vs. Potomac Nationals (33-42)
Another amazing pitching performance led to the Milwaukee Brewers High-A affiliate to a 4-1 victory tonight.
Nelson Hernandez got win number eight in the season, going 6 1/3 innings allowing just one run on one hit and struck out seven. Justin Topa got his third hold while Clayton Andrews collected save number 11 on the season.
Rob Henry has two RBIs on his only hit of the game.
Wisconsin TimberRattlers (36-40) vs. Cedar Rapids Kernels (42-35)
Pitching was the story of the night across the farm and Freisis Adames wrote his chapter, getting the no decision in a 5-2, 11-inning victory.
Adames went 5 1/3 innings, with two runs onside hits while striking out four. The bullpen combined for 5 2/3 scoreless innings.
Rattlers finish the series with the Kernels tomorrow.
Rocky Mountain Vibes (4-8) vs. Orem Owlz (6-7)
Currently on a seven game losing streak, the Vibes drop another game, Thursday night against the Owlz 3-1.
The Vibes only run was courtesy of Luis Avalo’s single in the eighth.
The Milwaukee Brewers Rookie League affiliate will try again tomorrow against the Owlz.
