Washington’s minor league farm system update!
On a rainy Tuesday night, two of the four scheduled games were postponed. Luckily for us, there was no shortage of action even though Fredericksburg started with a rain delay and ended up scoring
two touchdowns 15 runs, and Rochester put up a touchdown and field goal 10 runs.
The Red Wings staged a comeback for the ages to win after they overcame an 8-1 deficit, and the FredNats continue to run through every pitcher they face.
Class-A Fredericksburg “FredNats” Nationals
This was the clash of the two top teams in the Carolina League as the Nationals’ affiliate faced Tampa Bay’s pride and joy. For the third time in their last four games, the FredNats offense scored double digit runs. Tonight they got some help from the RiverDogs as they walked 15 and made three errors, however the hitters didn’t put up 15 runs on that alone. They totaled 12 hits and 11 runs batted in including back-to-back solo home runs from Leandro Emiliani and Andry Arias in the 5th. Emiliani’s OPS is up to 1.170 in 42 plate appearances.
It was two hits apiece for Drew Millas, Brady House, Emiliani, and Arias. As to not run up the score further, manager Jake Lowery pulled House mid-game.
On the pitching side of things, the bullpen stole the show once again. Peyton Glavine, Orlando Ribalta, and Cody Greenhill combined for four scoreless innings to close out the game.
High-A Wilmington Blue Rocks
The Blue Rocks’ game against the Hudson Valley Renegades was postponed due to weather and will be played tomorrow, Wednesday, the 27th, as part of a doubleheader.
Double-A Harrisburg Senators
The Senators’ game against the Hartford Yard Goats was also postponed due to weather and will be played on Thursday, the 28th, as the first game of a doubleheader.
Triple-A Rochester Red Wings
What a night in Rochester. The Wings went down early and easily could have folded and went home after they found themselves in an 8-1 hole in the fourth inning, but they fought back and ended up scoring nine unanswered runs to shock the Syracuse Mets with help from a Donovan Casey three-run homer, a Tres Barrera solo shot and a two-homer day from Luis García (4-for-4) including the go-ahead blast in the bottom of the 8th. It was quite the comeback with a 10-9 win!
Sterling Sharp did a fantastic job cleaning up after Luis Reyes gave up eight runs in only three innings. Sharp went four scoreless innings and only allowed two hits.
Farm System final notes 🎶
Despite two rain outs, there was a good amount of offense around the farm.
