Columbus Clippers 2, Toledo Mud Hens 3

Box Score · Clippers fall to 41-38

Columbus outhit Toledo 10-6, but a trio of errors led to two unearned runs for the Mud Hens and the Clippers were very anti-clutch, going just 2-9 with runners in scoring position.

Offensively, Yandy Diaz went 4-4 at the dish while Abe Almonte and Daniel Robertson had multi-hit games in the loss.

Brock Hartson pitched the game of his life, shutting out Frederick over seven innings while giving up just two hits, walking three and striking out six. Paul Hendrix completed the two-hit shutout with two perfect innings of relief.

Yonathan Mendoza, Claudio Bautista and Anthony Miller all had multi-hit efforts for the Hillcats.

Mahoning Valley Scrappers 1, West Virginia Black Bears 7

Box Score · Scrappers fall to 6-5

Mahoning Valley jumped out to a 1-0 lead thanks to an RBI double from 2016 first round pick Will Benson, but that would be the end of the offense for the Scrappers as the team proceeded to allow seven unanswered runs.

Starting pitcher Francisco Perez faced adversity for the first time this year, allowing four runs (two earned) in just 4.1 innings of work. He gave up three hits, walked three and struck out just one.

AZL Indians 5, AZL White Sox 0

Box Score · Indians improve to 2-4

A combination of four pitchers all allowed one run en route to a four-hit shutout victory. Juan Mota pitched six strong innings, striking out four and walking three before giving way to the bullpen.

Offensively, Wilbis Santiago led the way going 2-3 at the dish with a walk and the lone extra base hit, a two-run homer. Felix Fernandez was also perfect at the plate, going 1-1 with three walks.

DSL Indians 7, DSL Rangers1 10

Box Score · Indians fall to 9-15

Three unearned runs were the deciding factor as the DSL Indians outhit the DSL Rangers 9-8 but were outscored by three.
