Bad weather. Doubleheader tomorrow.

Tennessee Smokies

The Tennessee Smokies overthrew the Birmingham Barons (White Sox), 7-1.

Cory Abbott turned in a very good start and got his first win of the year. Abbott allowed just one run on eight hits over 5.2 innings. Abbott struck out eight and walked just one.

Third baseman Clayton Daniel made his season debut a great one, going 3 for 4 with one run scored and one RBI.

DH Ian Rice was 2 for 4 with an RBI double that capped off a four-run third inning.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans sawed off the Fayetteville Woodpeckers (Astros), 6-1.

Paul Richan allowed his first run of the season, but he also got his first win of the season. Richan allowed just one run on three hits over five innings. Richan did walk three batters and he struck out two.

The Pelicans scored six runs on just four hits, thanks primarily to 11 walks in a sloppy, rainy game. First baseman Luke Reynolds was 1 for 2 with two walks and two runs scored.

Shortstop Aramis Ademan was 0 for 1 with three walks and a stolen base. He scored one run.

South Bend Cubs

The South Bend Cubs lost to the Lansing Lugnuts (Blue Jays), 5-4.

Eury Ramos allowed three runs on five hits, including two home runs, over six innings. He walked two and struck out four.

Zach Mort took the loss after he allowed a run in the eighth inning and a run in the ninth. Mort’s final line was two runs, one earned, on two hits over 2.1 innings. He walked two and struck out three.

Shortstop Andy Weber was 2 for 5 with a triple and two RBI. He also scored once.

Right fielder Jonathan Sierra was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Center fielder Cole Roederer went 2 for 5.

Third baseman Christopher Morel made his season debut and was 1 for 4 with an RBI triple.
