The A teams on their final night off made for a rather quiet night in the system.

L- Kent Emanuel (3-4)
S- Trey Wingenter (5)

CC home runs: None.

Davis single in the 7th. Jon Singleton went 2-4 with a double and scored twice. Mayfield (2B, RBI, R, SB) and Jason Martin (2B, 3B) also finished with 2 hits.

Riley Ferrell worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

The ValleyCats entered the win column for the first time in 2017 in walk-off fashion.

Patrick Sandoval turned in 5 solid innings, allowing a run on 4 hits, walking 1, and striking out 8. The Spinners got to Leovanny Rodriguez in the 6th, though. Rodriguez only got 2 outs (both via strikeout) and allowed 3 runs on 2 hits and walked 2. Reggie Johnson got Rodriguez out of a bases-loaded predicament and went on to throw 2.1 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 2, and striking out 3. Humberto Castellanos worked around a couple of hits to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Vicente Sanchez doubled in the 2nd and scored TC's first run of the season on an infield single from Andy Piñeda. Sanchez hit a sac fly in the 3rd and Piñeda followed with an RBI sac bunt. Frankeny Fernandez led off the 9th with a single and Ruben Castro ripped a double to join him on the bases. Sanchez went down on strikes, but an error allowed Piñeda to reach, and Fernandez and Castro scored the tying and winning runs.

Piñeda finished 2-3 and was credited with an RBI on what turned out to be the winning play. Troy Sieber (2B) and Castro (2B, R) also had 2 hits on the evening. Fernandez finished 3-4 and scored twice.

Ricardo Castro takes the mound in game 2. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

DSL Astros Blue 5, DSL Braves 2

W- Angel Macuare (1-1)
L- Jhonny Diaz (2-1)

Blue home runs: Brandon Benavente (1, 2-run in 8th), Ronaldo Urdaneta (1, solo in 8th)

This game was called with 1 out in the 9th due to rain. The Blue team broke a 2-2 tie with a pair of home runs in the 8th.

Both teams scored in the 3rd; Team Blue got their run on an Angel Tejeda RBI single. Kendy Moya scored on an error that allowed Anthony Rodriguez to reach in the 5th. Brandon Benavente whacked a 2-run homer in the 8th inning and Ronaldo Urdaneta went back-to-back with a solo blast. Tejeda finished 2-4.

The one run that Antonio Pujols allowed in his 4 innings came on a solo homer hit by Yenci Peña in the 3rd. He allowed 2 other hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Jean Reyes and Bryan Solano pitched an inning apiece; Reyes worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 5th, striking out 1. Solano allowed a run on a groundout, a run, and walked 2. Angel Macuare allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 2.1 scoreless innings.

DSL Astros Orange 6, DSL Indians/Brewers 3

W- Diosward Gonzalez (1-1)
L- Henry Garcia (0-1)
S- Luis De Paula (1)

Orange home runs: None.

Team Orange only scored in one inning and only had 4 hits. They had as many hits as they did strikeouts. They won anyway.

Carlos Perdomo allowed 4 hits and struck out 3 over 3 scoreless innings. Angel Ortega recorded a strikeout in a 1-2-3 4th inning. Diosward Gonzalez went 4 innings and allowed 3 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits and struck out 2. Luis De Paula worked around a couple of walks in order to save the game.

The Orange team scored all 6 of their runs in the 8th without a hit. Only in the Dominican Summer League.

Freudis Nova got plunked to lead off the inning and Euclides Chavez drew a walk to join him on the bases. Jose Carrillo got hit to load the bases, and Jose Alvarez got plunked to bring Nova in for the Orange team's first run of the day. Jeury Castillo drew a bases-loaded walk, which prompted the Brewdians to make a pitching change.

Carrillo scored on a wild pitch. Gerry Castillo, who was at the plate at the time, eventually walked. While Michael Garcia was at the plate, Alvarez scored on a passed ball and Jeury scampered home on a wild pitch. Garcia ended up coaxing a walk. He then stole 2nd and Renaigel Martis walked to re-load the bases for Deury Carrasco, who walked to bring Gerry Castillo home.

Alvarez had 3 of Team Orange's 4 hits, all of which were singles; Carrasco had the other hit. Martis walked 4 times. Team Orange drew 12 walks on the day.
