Micah Johnson (3-4, 2B, K) had his first 3-hit game since joining the Knights and is now hitting .286/.352/.397 with Charlotte. Matt Tuiasosopo hit his fourth homer of the year. On the pitching side Scott Carroll pitched 5.2 innings of scoreless ball with 3 K, 2 BB, 8 H. Carroll has a 1.42 ERA in five starts in AAA.
Tim Anderson (1-4, 2B, BB, 2 K) is up to 21 stolen bases on the season with two more tonight and five Barons had two-hit games. Chris Marrero, younger brother of Christian Marrero, made his Barons’ debut. Both had two hits and batted back-to-back in the order. For those of us who tweet out game results and leading performers, having two Marreros, no two C. Marreros, no that’s not good enough either, you get the idea. It’s confusing. So much for original names within a family I guess. It’s the first time since high school that the two brothers played in the same lineup.
Myles Jaye had a quality start (6 IP, 3 R, 4 K, 2 BB, 7 H) in the win.
Omar Narvaez went 4-5 to bring his average up to .300, Jake Peter went 3-5 with a walk and Trey Michalczewski went 2-4 with 2 walks. Michalczewski is hitting just .260, but does have 23 walks in 225 plate appearances for a solid .342 on-base percentage.
James Dykstra had his worst start of the season (3.2 IP, 8 R, 7 ER, 0 K, 1 BB, 2 HBP, 6 H). That will mess up his overall stats, but he still has a sub-4.00 ERA at 3.83.
Louie Lechich (2-4) had the only multi-hit game of the night for Kannapolis. Recent signing Alexander Simon (1-4, 2B, K) had the only extra base hit. Yency Almonte (5.2 IP, 5 R, 2 K, 2 BB, 10 H) had another rough start in a game with few highlights for the Intimidators.
