Las Vegas lost to Sacramento, 5-4:
Travis Snider was 4-4 with a walk and a double. Nothing left to do in the minors.
That was it for extra base-hits.
Brad Mills, by the way, had another great start on Friday. The Vegas offense did nothing, but Mills threw 6 scoreless innings while striking out 9 and walking just 2.
New Hampshire lost 4-1
Joel Carreno started and gave up 4 runs over 6 2/3 innings. Carreno struck out 7 and walked 2 which is good, but the two home runs were less good and the fact that he only had 2 groundouts (8 flyouts) was downright awful.
Anthony Gose was 3-4 with three singles, and also stole two bases. No one else got on base multiple times and no one had an extra-base hit.
On Friday, Mike McDade and Mark Sobolewski both had two hit days, with Sobolewski hitting a double. Craig Stansberry homered.
Dunedin lost to Daytona 4-2.
Deck McGuire made the start and it wasn't a great one. Deck pitched 6 1/3, gave up 4 runs (3 earned). He struck out 3 and walked 3, and gave up two home runs. Lots of groundouts, though, and his season is still going pretty well (3.65 ERA, 19/8 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings), particularly considering he started his pro career at high-A.
Chris Hopkins had the only extra-base hit (a double), while going 1-4. Hopkins also walked.
Kevin Ahrens and Justin Jackson each had a single and a walk. Jackson was playing right field and is hitting well so far this season. .310/.423/.381
Lansing saved the day with a 2-0 win over West Michigan:
Marcus Knecht was 2-4 with a solo home run. .378/.451/.622 on the season.
No other extra-base hits for the team. The other run came on a Michael Crouse sacrifice fly.
Casey Lawrence had a great start, pitching 6 scoreless innings. Lawrence struck out 6, walked none. 3.38 ERA and 16/1 (!) K/BB ratio over 24 innings. The K numbers are a little low but Lawrence has been getting a ton of groundouts.
