7/5 recap: Ravelo homers in big day for Barons

The holiday weekend continued with four wins for White Sox affiliates and some offensive explosions.

Knights 6, Norfolk 3

Micah Johnson 3-4, 2B
Carlos Sanchez 1-4, 2 K
Marcus Semien 2-4, 2B, E #3
Matt Davidson 0-4, K
Shawn Hill 7 IP, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 K, 2 BB, 7 H

Barons 13, Tennessee 3

Trayce Thompson 1-4, BB
Rangel Ravelo 2-4, HR #6, K
Josh Richmond 2-4, 2B
Chris Curley 3-4, 2B
Nick McCully 6 IP, 2 R, 2 K, 3 BB, 3 H
Braulio Ortiz IP, 2 BB

That's a AA debut for Ortiz. The 22-year-old drew some attention by striking out 103 batters in 90 innings last season between Kannapolis and Winston-Salem, but he hasn't improved his control enough to be an effective starter. He had nine starts and 11 relief appearances this year with the Dash with a 5.05 ERA, 51 K, 33 BB in 51.2 IP.

Wilmington 3, Dash 2

Jacob May 0-3, BB
Joey DeMichele 0-4
Jason Coats 3-4
Keon Barnum 2-3, 2B, K
Cleuluis Rondon 0-4
Terance Marin 8 IP, 2 R, 5 K, 0 BB, 6 H

Rondon is only 1-14 since moving up to Winston-Salem, although the 20-year-old has just one strikeout so maybe there's reason to think he can bounce back quickly. It's not a big surprise he is struggling though.

Hagerstown 3, Intimidators 1

Trey Michalczewski 0-3, K
Danny Hayes 0-2, 2 BB, E #8
Jacob Morris 0-2, 2 BB
Brett Austin 1-3, BB, 2 K
James Dykstra 7 IP, 3 R, 1 ER, 4 K, BB, 8 H

Brett Austin update: The fourth round pick is hitting .244/.304/.317 in 11 games. Austin has three walks and 16 strikeouts in 46 plate appearances. Strangely he has hits in 10 of his 11 games, but no multi-hit games.

Voyagers 13, Missoula 9

Hunter Jones 2-5, HR #1, BB
Jake Peter 3-5, 3B, BB
Zach Fisher 3-5, 2B, BB, K
Jackson Laumann 1-4, HR #4, BB, 2 K
Ethan Gross 2-5, 3B, K
Brandon Brennan 1.1 IP, 5 R, K, 3 BB, 5 H

Arizona White Sox 8, Giants 6

Eddy Alvarez 2-4, BB, E #5
Cody Yount 2-5, K
Marc Flores 1-3, 3B, BB, K
Micker Adolfo 1-4, K
Jose Barraza 2-3, K
Lucas Shearrow 4 IP, 0 R, 5 K, 2 BB, H
