New Hampshire Fisher Cats (22-26)   –   11
Reading Fightin Phils (33-17)   –   8

Five Fisher Cats batters had multi-hit games in a high-scoring affair against the Fightin Phils. A 10-2 lead in the third inning did get uncomfortably close against a scary Phils offence, but Chris Smith and Matt Dermody shut them down in the 8th and 9th.

Starting pitcher John Anderson and reliever Jason Berken combined for seven innings of work and seven earned runs on 14 hits.

Designated hitter Melky Mesa hit a solo shot and Christian Lopes went 2-for-3 with a walk and three RBI’s out of the nine hole. Other notables were Jon Berti‘s 2-for-5 night with a triple and Rowdy Tellez went 1-for-5 with a double and three strikeouts.

Dunedin Blue Jays (22-29)   –   4
Daytona Tortugas (23-28)   –   8

Justin Shafer pitched into the seventh inning but allowed seven runs on eight hits, three walks, and six strikeouts. The D-Jays were unable to break out offensively as Derrick Loveless and Richard Urena were a combined 0-for-10 at the top of the lineup.

Jason Leblebijian hit his sixth home run of the season for Dunedin and catcher Jorge Saez was 2-for-4 with a double and a couple of RBI’s. Top prospect Anthony Alford was also 0-for-4, in a tough night for the young Blue Jays.

Lansing Lugnuts (24-24)   –   0
South Bend Cubs (31-17)   –   1

Angel Perdomo dominated a lethal Cubs offence that had 17 runs on 19 hits just one night earlier. Perdomo pitched seven shut out innings of one-hit ball to silence some hot bats in the South Bend dugout. He walked three and struck out three, while improving his remarkable opponents batting average against to .142. He leads the MiLB in that category.

Unfortunately for Perdomo, the Lugnuts could only generate three hits. A scoreless game in the ninth ended when when Eloy Jiminez hit a home run to lead off the inning against reliever Starlyn Suriel to give the Cubs a 1-0 victory.
