SAVANNAH 5, ASHEVILLE 10 (Box)

Alex Panteliodis wasn't fooling anybody last night, as the Tourists pounded him for eight runs (six earned) on eleven hits in just four innings of work. He allowed two runs in the 1st and three runs in the 2nd before somehow not allowing a hit in the 3rd. Savannah took the opportunity to draw closer to the Tourists, as Cole Frenzel connected for a home run in the top of the 4th to make it a closer 5-2 ballgame, but Asheville responded with another three run inning to extend their lead once again. Savannah was plucky, plating two runs in the top of the 5th thanks to a sac fly and an error, but this time John Mincone gave up some runs. The offense was playing catch-up all night, but thanks to shoddy pitching, the hole they were in was too deep to fully dig out of.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-16)__________________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (10-14)__________________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Rookie - GCL Mets (11-10)__________________________________

GCL METS 1, GCL MARLINS 0 / 7 (Box)

In a rain-shortened contest, the GCL Mets shut out the GCL Marlins, with Robert Whalen, Flabio Ortega, and Kevin Canelon allowing four hits and one walk in seven total innings. The lone run of the game scored in the top of the 5th. Alfredo Reyes and Darryl Knight had back-to-back hits, and were both moved up a base on Dale Burdick's sacrifice bunt. GCL Marlins pitcher Francisco Aquino then walked Milton Ramos to load the bases and Raphael Ramirez to force in a run, before inducing a double play to end the inning and escape further damage. With the win, the GCL Mets move a game over .500 for the season.

Star of the Night

Narrowing down the field to Patrick Biondi, Dom Smith, Cole Frenzel, Robert Whalen, and Raphael Ramirez was the easy part. Picking who I think did better was a bit harder.  Ultimately, I'm going with Whalen here.

Goat of the Night

This one was much easier: Alex Panteliodis. Duh.
