Triple-A: Nashville Sounds 9, Columbus Clippers 3
Double-A: Akron RubberDucks vs. Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Ppd)
High-A: West Michigan White Caps 7, Lake County Captains 1
Low-A: Delmarva Shorebirds 8, Lynchburg Hillcats 0


Jose Tena (2B, Lake County): 2-4, R: Tena broke up West Michigan pitcher Chance Kirby’s no-hitter in the sixth inning with a single to right field. Before that, Kirby was perfect other than a walk to LF Victor Nova in the third. It would be the only hit Kirby would give up over 6.0 IP. Tena would add another hit in the ninth and go on to score the only run of the game for the Captains.

Ryan Lavarnway (C, Columbus): 2-4, HR, RBI: One of the few bright spots on the day and the series for Columbus, Larvarnway had two hits including a double and a home run in a losing effort to the Nashville Sounds.

Best of the Rest

Tyler Krieger (2B, Columbus): 1-4, HR, 2 RBI: The infielder hit his first home run of the season, a no-doubter over the right field wall to put the Clippers on the scoreboard in the second inning.

Andres Gimenez (SS, Columbus): 1-4, 2B, BB: After two hitless games, Gimenez got back on track with a double in the second inning. It was one of the few bright spots in a frustrating game and series for the Clippers.

Bobby Bradley (1B, Columbus): 0-3, 2 SO: A day after homering on his 25th birthday, Bradley went 0-3 and was thrown out of the game after he tossed what appeared to be his shin guard and a few choice words in the direction of the umpire. Earlier in the at-bat Bradley lined a pitch down the first base line and it was called a foul ball, although Bradley and the hometown crowd clearly believed otherwise. Bradley went on to create his own “strike out, thrown out,” to end his frustrating day.

Daniel Schneemann (DH, Lake County): 1-4, RBI: Schneemann provided the only RBI of the game for the Captains when he grounded out to West Michigan first baseman Spencer Torkelson in the ninth to score Jose Tena. He also singled to right field in the seventh in the Captains’ losing effort.

Gabriel Rodriguez (3B, Lynchburg): 1-2, 2BB: On a day when the Hillcats could only muster three hits, the struggling Rodriguez had one of them and also worked two walks.

Yainer Diaz (DH, Lynchburg): 1-4: The catcher notched a hit from the DH spot today, and his season average is now .328. For an organization looking for catching depth, it is nice to see Diaz find success early in the season.

Jaime Arias-Bautista (RP, Lynchburg): 3.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 SO: Josh Wolf could not get out of the first inning after giving up 5 ER over 0.1 IP. Arias-Baustista came on in the second and pitched three perfect innings, notching seven strikeouts.
