Columbus Clippers 3, Louisville Bats 5
Box Score · Clippers fall to 27-30
Giovanny Urshela did his best to pace the Clippers offense, going 3-4 with a home run, but it wasn’t enough. Urshela was joined on the day by Eric Stamets and Richie Shaffer, who both had multi-hit games, with Shaffer also collecting a double.
Pitchers Chris Narveson and Michael Peoples combined for 7.1 mediocre innings, giving up four runs on nine hits and four walks, with Narveson taking the loss.
Lynchburg Hillcats 3, Salem Red Sox 7
Box Score · Hillcats fall to 32-24
Shane Bieber continues to stay in the strike zone, but perhaps that’s not a great thing. The 2016 fourth round pick was tattooed yet again yesterday, giving up seven runs on 11 hits in 5.1 innings. After a strong first start upon being promoted to High-A, Bieber has now given up at least eight hits in his last five starts.
He’s walked four batters on the season (two intentionally) while striking out 58, but it seems batters are taking advantage of the fact that he’ll be in the strike zone.
Offensively, every member of the Lynchburg starting lineup had at least one hit, but the team simply couldn’t string their hits together, scoring a measly three runs despite 13 base hits and two walks.
Sam Haggerty, Willi Castro and Daniel Salters all had two hits in the losing effort.
Lake County Captains 2, Fort Wayne TinCaps 1 (F/13)
Box Score · Captains improve to 20-36
It took 13 innings, but Lake County finally pulled through after a heroic performance from its pitching staff.
Tanner Tully had a tremendous start for the Captains, giving up just one run in seven innings while striking out six and walking none. Ryan Colegate, Ben Krauth and Ryder Ryan combined for six innings of shutout relief to give the Captains their chance to win.
Todd Isaacs was the offensive hero for Lake County, scoring the tying run in the sixth inning, then knocking in the go-ahead run in the top of the 13th with an RBI double. Gavin Collins and Miguel Eladio also had multi-hit games.
Box Score · DSL Indians fall to 0-3
A disastrous eight-run sixth inning sunk the DSL Indians. Starting pitcher Luis Garcia cruised through five frames, giving up one run, but reliever Christophers Santana gave up all eight runs without getting an out, leaving the game with an infinite ERA.

DSL Indians/Brewers 7, DSL Dodgers2 19
Box Score · DSL Indians/Brewers fall to 1-2
This game was an absolute disaster, but the good news is all of the earned runs were given up by Brewers pitchers. The only Indians prospect to pitch, Adoni Kery, threw 0.2 innings without surrendering and earned run, which is something to be proud of when your team gives up 19 in total.
Shortstop Makesiondon Kelkboom had another strong game, going 2-4 with a double, a hit by pitch and three runs batted in while Julio Cabrera went 2-3 with a double in the defeat.
The Double-A Akron Rubberducks had their game rained out.
