The Triple-A Buffalo Bisons tied the Memphis Redbirds 1-1. LHP Mark Cohoon started and pitched three scoreless. RHP Dylan Owen followed with three more scoreless. RHP Collin McHugh and LHP Jack Leathersich also pitched in this one, apparently not as effectively. IF Wilmer Flores provided the offense with a solo HR. The Double-A Binghamton Mets won 9-3 over the Springfield Cardinals. RHP Zack Wheeler got the start allowing one unearned over 3 IP with 1 H, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP. He was reportedly touching 97 mph and threw 33 of his 52 pitches for strikes (63%). OF Cory Vaughn and IF Travis Ozga hit back-to-back homers in the second; Ozga finished a triple shy of the cycle. RHP Domingo Tapia and LHP Angel Cuan got the starts for the two A-ball clubs in Jupiter.
