Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Norfolk 12, Lehigh Valley 4

Brad Lincoln - 1.1 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 6 ER, K, HR, WP
Hector Neris - 2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, K, 2 HR
Jeremy Horst - 2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, HR
Ethan Martin - 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, K
Tyson Gillies - 1 for 4, HR, K
Tyler Henson - 0 for 4 (throwing error)
Maikel Franco - 1 for 4, R
Cameron Rupp - 1 for 3, HR, 2 RBI, HBP
Leandro Castro - 1 for 4, R, 2B

Well now, when you think Brad Lincoln can't get any worse, it happens. This time he can't even make it out of the 2nd inning. Because of that, the Iron Pigs were out of this game before they even had a chance. Mind you, despite the offense putting up 4 runs, they only had 4 hits. Cameron Rupp hits his 6th home run. Fun hit break down for Rupp on the season. Of his 12 hits (batting .200), he has 6 homers, 2 doubles and 4 singles. Kind of bizarre. Positives on that besides "yay for power"? He continues to hold his own behind the plate. Gillies hits his 2nd homer this season. Maikel Franco has a very modest 11 game on base streak. If you didn't notice, Hector Neris got the call back up to Lehigh and was clobbered.

Reading 9, Trenton 6 (12 innings)

Hoby Milner - 4.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 6 BB, 2 K, HR, 3 GB, 4 FB
Austin Wright - 2.2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, HR
Nefi Ogando - 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 K
Tyler Knigge - 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K
Albert Cartwright - 1 for 5, R, 3B, BB, 2 K
Everett Williams - 3 for 5, 2 R, RBI, BB, K
Brock Stassi - 3 for 6, R, BB, 2 K
Cam Perkins - 3 for 7, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI, K
Aaron Altherr - 1 for 5, R, 2 K
Anthony Phillips - 1 for 2, R, 3 BB

Hoby Milner with a disappointing start. He had 4 quality starts in a row prior to this. He gave up a grand slam in the 3rd inning. Reading would actually have the lead in the top of the 9th before Ogando would blow his first save opportunity. Cam Perkins (of course) would end the game with a 3 run homer to left field, his 3rd on the year. It's a good thing that the SBN picture database doesn't include Perkins, because it would be his picture almost every day. Tyler Knigge continues his hot streak. He hasn't given up an earned run in 11 games (21 innings). He is a bit old for the league and could get a call up to Lehigh Valley in the next month.

Clearwater 5, Fort Myers 4 (11 innings)

Colin Kleven - 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 5 K, 6 GB, 4 FB, WP
Roman Quinn - 0 for 4, 3 K, HBP
KC Serna - 2 for 5, R
Peter Lavin - 0 for 4, R, K
Chris Swauger - 1 for 3, 2 R, RBI, BB, K
Art Charles - 1 for 4, HR, 3 RBI, BB, K
Gabriel Lino - 1 for 4, 3 K
Andrew Knapp - 1 for 4

Colin Kleven continues his rather good month of May, though doesn't get the win. The outcome was looking bleak until Lavin was able to reach 1st on a 2-out catcher interference call. Chris Swauger then would work a walk before Art Charles smacks his 3rd of the year to tie the game. In the bottom of the 11th, Swauger and Charles draw 1-out walks, which allows Logan Moore to deliver the walkoff single to end the game. Excitement for the Threshers!!!! Roman Quinn doesn't have a great game at the plate, but was part of fielding 2 successful double plays in the game.

Lakewood 2, Greensboro 1

Jon Prosinski - 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, BB, 3 K, 12 GB, 2 FB
Carlos Tocci - 0 for 4
JP Crawford - 1 for 4, 3 K, CS
Willians Astudillo - 1 for 4, R, K
Dylan Cozens - 2 for 4, R, 2 2B
Samuel Hiciano - 1 for 4, 3 K
Mitch Walding - 0 for 4, 3 K
Wilmer Oberto - 0 for 2, BB, K (fielding error)
Robinson Torres - 1 for 3, 2 RBI, K

Jon Prosinski, a 23 year old college pitcher, is demoted to Lakewood. Pretty damning if you ask me. He of course picks up the win despite all the odds against him. He gives up more baserunners than innings pitched, Greensboro outhits the Blue Claws 9-6 and the Lakewood lineup strikes out a staggering 14 times at the plate. The least likely hero of the game, Robinson Torres, gets a 2 RBI single in the 5th. That would obviously hold up. JP Crawford with a not so good day at the plate, but still collects a hit (and his 7th caught stealing attempt). Cozens hits his 11th and 12th doubles on the season and steals his 7th base.
