From a results standpoint, I’d probably take Shelby Miller‘s start from today’s game. From a peripherals standpoint, I’d go with Kyle Hald. Kolten Wong has a multi-hit outing and Greg Garcia makes the notes again with a perfect day at the plate.
Memphis 1, New Orleans 4
- Shelby Miller pitched 5 innings allowing 6 hits and 2 ER. He struck out 2 and walked none.
- Chuckie Fick and Maikel Cleto both pitched a perfect inning. Cleto struck out 1.
- Eduardo Sanchez struck out 2 and allowed 1 unearned run on 2 hits in his inning of work.
- Amaury Cazana Marti doubled.
- Memphis recorded a handful of additional hits (6) in a rather weak offensive showing for the club.
Springfield 8, Jacksonville 7
- Michael Blazek struck out 5 in 4.1 IP. He was touched up for 4 hits and 3 ER while walking 2.
- Deryk Hooker, who looks headed for a bullpen role this year, struck out 3 in 2 innings. He allowed 1 run on 2 hits.
- Scott Schneider had a rough outing allowing 3 ER while retiring just 1 batter. He had 2 hits and 2 walks to his name.

Quad Cities #1 0, Greensboro 8
- In a game full of messy Quad Cities pitching lines, Hector Hernandez start with 3 innings allowing 4 ER is, arguably, the worst. He was dinged by 6 hits and did himself no favors with 3 walks. Hernandez, a lefty who pitched for Batavia much of 2011, struck out 1.

- Virgil Hill was 2-for-4.
- Luis Mateo was 1-for-3 with a walk.
- Garrett Wittels was 2-for-2.

- Kevin Jacobs pitched a pair of perfect frames striking out 3.
- Kolby Byrd was 3-for-4 with a HR.
- Gerwuins Velazco, David Bergin and Gary Apelian all doubled.
