Down on the Farm: Javier Baez, Iowa Cubs win in extras

4 of 5

Stone Crabs 11 – Cubs 5

The struggling Daytona Cubs and the Charlotte Stone Crabs went back and forth for the first four innings of last night’s ballgame.

Daytona would carry a 5-3 lead into the top of the fifth inning before the Stone Crabs were able to take control. Both Gioskar Amaya and Bijan Rademacher scored the first couple runs for the Cubs. Amaya hit his first home run of the season while Rademacher followed that up with an RBI double after Albert Almora was able to reach safely.

Starting pitcher Tayler Scott had a rough night last night as the Stone Crabs were able to take him deep twice last night. He only worked through 4 2/3 innings – allowing five hits (two home runs), and was charged with five earned while striking out and walking three apiece. Charlotte would get another three off pitcher Michael Jensen and Stephen Perakslis. The Stone Crabs’ Patrick Leonard launched a three-run shot during the top of the eighth inning to make it an 11-5 ballgame.

That would prove to be the dagger as Daytona was unable to respond in the late innings.

The winning pitcher is Ben Griset (1-1, 1.69 ERA), the losing pitcher is Michael Jensen (1-1, 3.94 ERA) and the save went to Bruedlin Suero (1).

Daytona Cubs fall to 10-24 on the y ear.
