Luis Garcia was back in Rochester’s lineup following a collision on Tuesday, so it seems that he’s good to go injury-wise. Certainly a relief.
Class-A Fredericksburg “FredNats” Nationals
Rodney Theophile was on the bump for the FredNats and he was tremendous once again. He gave the team a much needed quality start, going 5 1/3 of shutout ball. Theophile is on the old side for Low-A, as a 22-year-old, and 1.45 ERA with 55 strikeouts in 43.1 IP is surely good enough for a promotion to Wilmington.
More great pitching from the bullpen and Fredericksburg won 12-1.
High-A Wilmington Blue Rocks
Tim Cate spun five shutout innings with only three hits allowed – a good outing from an otherwise struggling prospect. The back-end of the bullpen surrendered five runs and that’d be all she wrote.
Blue Rocks lose 5-2.
Double-A Harrisburg Senators
The Senators dropped another one after spotting the Curve five runs early in the game. They just can’t seem to keep up with Altoona’s offense.
Ehire Adrianza played third base, shortstop, and second base in the game as he works towards a comeback to the big leagues.
Jack Dunn had two hits and two walks along with a tremendous catch crashing into the centerfield wall.
Sens lose 5-2.
Triple-A Rochester Red Wings
The Red Wings had to use six pitchers in the game to keep the Mets to seven runs.
Wings win 9-7.
Farm System final notes 🎶
The Nats’ minor league system had a much better night than the previous few, but still a lot to work on all around.
