Minor Details: Games of August 25

Byron Buxton begins his rehab.  The DSL season comes to a close.

SYRACUSE 11, ROCHESTER 3 IN SYRACUSE

The Chiefs took a 3-1 lead after three and never trailed.  Zander Weil was 2-for-4 with a double.  He is batting .253.  Brandon Barnes was 1-for-4 with a home run, his twenty-ninth.  He is batting .254.  Jorge Alcala struck out three in 1.2 scoreless innings, giving up one hit.  His ERA remains zero.  The Red Wings are 66-66, in fourth place, four games back.  Their elimination number is five.

JACKSON 4, PENSACOLA 1 IN PENSACOLA

An error scored two Generals in the fifth to break a scoreless tie.  LaMonte Wade, on a rehab assignment, was 2-for-4 with a double.  He is batting .267.  Alex Krilloff was 2-for-4.  He is batting .284.  Griffin Jax struck out seven in six innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk.  His ERA is 2.67.  Andrew Vasquez pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a walk and striking out one.  His ERA is 4.91.  The Blue Wahoos are 34-28, in third place, four games back.  However, Biloxi, which won the first half, is in first place by 2.5 games in the second half.  If the Shuckers win both halves, the second playoff qualifier will be the team with the second-best overall record.  The Blue Wahoos have clinched that distinction, and will go to the playoffs is Biloxi holds its lead.  It would have been really interesting if Pensacola played Biloxi in the last week of the season, but they don't.

FORT MYERS AT PALM BEACH

Rained out.  The game will not be made up.

PEORIA 9, CEDAR RAPIDS 5 IN CEDAR RAPIDS

The Kernels led 5-0 through eight, but the Chiefs scored nine runs in the ninth.  Tyler Webb was 2-for-3 with a triple, a walk, and two runs.  He is batting .241.  Spencer Steer was 2-for-4 with a double and a walk.  He is batting .255.  Wander Javier was 2-for-5 and is batting .176.  Byron Buxton, beginning his rehab assignment, was 1-for-2 with a double and a walk.  Josh Winder pitched six innings, giving up four hits and two walks and striking out five.  His ERA is 2.68.  Dylan Thomas pitched two shutout innings, giving up two hits and a walk and striking out one.  His ERA is 2.70.  The Kernels are 33-29, in fourth place, six games back.  Their elimination number is four; however, they qualified for the playoffs by finishing second in the first half.
