8/4/16 recap: Lowry with another solid start, Hawkins homers

White Sox affiliates went 3-2 on Thursday with Thad Lowry’s pitching performance arguably the most notable performance of the day.

Knights 9, Gwinnett 4

Nicky Delmonico (4), Jerry Sands (4) and Slade Heathcott (2) each hit home runs in the win. Sands’ blast was a grand slam. Jason Coats had two hits and a walk to raise his average to .329. On the pitching side Kameron Loe had a quality start (6 IP, 3 R, 2 K, 2 BB, 8 H).

Tennessee 5, Barons 1

Courtney Hawkins hit his seventh home run of the season to break a shut out up in the ninth inning. That was one of just six hits for the Barons. Eddy Alvarez had the only multi-hit day. James Dykstra (4.2 IP, 5 R, 4 K, 4 BB, 7 H) got rocked for the loss.

Dash 3, Frederick 1

Thad Lowry (7 IP, R, 3 K, 3 BB, 1 H) walked two of the first three batters he faced and allowed a run in the first inning before settling down. He retired the last 14 batters he faced. That makes three quality starts in a row for the 21-year-old.

Landon Lassiter went 2-for-3 with a walk in the leadoff spot. Marcus Davis went 3-for-3 with a double to raise his average to .295. The Dash had six hits.

Greensboro 4, Intimidators 3

Like the Barons and Dash, the Intimidators managed just six hits. Grant Massey had the only multi-hit day, though Alex Call was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks. Johnathan Frebis gave up three runs in 3.1 innings, but Michael Horejsei and Alex Katz both had multiple innings of perfect relief.

Voyagers 7, Idaho Falls 3

Brady Conlan smashed his team-leading sixth home run in the win. Corey Zangari also had a rare game without any strikeouts, going 2-for-3 with a double and a walk. Catcher Casey Schroeder had a double and a triple and is hitting .301. Yosmer Solorzano (5.2 IP, 3 R, 2 ER, 5 K, 3 BB, 6 H) made the start and got the win.
