The Class-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers were down to their final out on Sunday in Beloit, Wis., trailing the Beloit Snappers 3-0 in the ninth inning. Orlando Arcia gave the Rattlers a chance with a bases-loaded triple to tie it and Garrett Cooper—just back off the disabled list—drove in the eventual game-winner with a tenth inning single as Wisconsin stunned the Snappers 4-3.
The ninth-inning rally started with consecutive one-out singles by Cooper, Parker Berberet and Max Walla to load the bases. After Chris McFarland struck out, Arcia hit a sinking liner to right. Beloit right fielder Aaron Shipman tried to make a diving, game-ending catch, but the ball hit in front of him and rolled to the wall, allowing all three runs to score.
In the tenth, Adrian Williams and Victor Roache had back-to-back one-out singles, executed a double steal to move up to second and third. Cooper took advantage of a drawn-in infield, slapping a ball through the right side for a single to score Williams. Roache was cut down at the plate to leave the Rattlers with a one-run edge.
Ryan Fasano made his Class A debut, working two scoreless innings, surrendering three hits and striking out three. Taylor Wall (2-3) got the win with a scoreless ninth and tenth for the Rattlers.
Taylor, Cooper and Walla had two hits each for the Rattlers, who had 12 hits on the day—11 of them singles.
The Triple-A Nashville Sounds rallied to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth, but the Round Rock Express scored two runs in the top of the tenth for an 8-6, extra-inning victory in Nashville, Tenn., on Sunday.
Nashville squandered a 5-1 lead en route to losing for the seventh time in eight extra-inning games this year. Eugenio Velez gave the Sounds a 2-1 lead with a two-run homer in the third, his first since joining the team in late July, and Caleb Gindl extended the lead with his 11th homer of the season, a three-run shot in the fifth.
But Round Rock got two runs in the sixth off reliever Zack Kroenke and then took a 6-5 lead in the eighth by plating three runs—only one earned—off reliever Johnnie Lowe. Travis Webb surrendered the two runs in the tenth to fall to 2-5 on the season.
Alfredo Figaro, just sent down this week from the Milwaukee Brewers, started and worked four innings, allowing a run on five hits, walking three and striking out four.
Robinzon Diaz was 2-for-5 with a double for the Sounds and Hainley Statia was 2-for-4 with an RBI double to tie the game in the eighth.
Drew Gagnon surrendered four runs in 6.1 innings and fell to 4-7 on the season as the Double-A Huntsville Stars lost to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in Huntsville, Ala., on Sunday, 4-1.
Gagnon allowed eight hits while walking three and striking out three. He coughed up a pair of home runs. Eric Marzec got two outs to finish the seventh while Micah Owings and Michael Olmsted—in his first appearance after being sent down from Triple-A Nashville—each pitched a scoreless frame.
The Stars’ lone run came in the sixth on an RBI single by Jason Rogers, who leads the Southern League with 80 RBI.
Mike Walker was the only Star with multiple hits, going 2-for-4.
The bullpen for the High-A Brevard County Manatees couldn’t preserve a gem for starter Brent Suter, surrendering five runs in the seventh inning in a 5-3 loss to the Daytona Cubs in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Suter worked six shutout innings, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out six, but things went badly for reliever Stephen Peterson in the seventh.
Peterson (4-1) allowed five runs on six hits in the inning, including a pair of home runs. As is the case for relief pitchers, the outing was rough on Peterson’s ERA—shooting from 2.87 to 3.61 after the disastrous inning.
Daniel Meadows dud work a scoreless eighth for the Manatees.
Brevard gave Suter a 1-0 lead in the third when T.J. Mittelstaedt hit his 11th home run of the season against Scott Baker, pitching for the Cubs on a rehabilitation assignment.
The Manatees tried to rally, scoring two runs in the top of the eighth on RBI groundouts by Nick Ramirez and Mitch Haniger.
D’Vontrey Richardson was 2-for-5 and Mittelstaedt was 2-for-4.
