White Sox Farm Report 6/13
The Knights (27-39) had the night off on Wednesday and will return home tonight for a four-game set against Columbus (32-34). Jason Berken (4-6, 4.24) will take the ball this evening for Charlotte. The righty will be looking for his first victory since May 28. First pitch is scheduled for 5:15.
Birmingham (41-24) also had a day off yesterday. They are back at home to do battle with Jackson (27-34) this evening. 2011 Voyager Scott Snodgress (7-4, 4.54) gets the nod for the Barons. The southpaw has won two of his past three starts. They are expected to get underway from Regions Field tonight at 6:05.
The Dash (35-31) fell to Lynchburg (34-30) last night by the score of 6-3. 2012 Voyager Christopher Beck was roughed up for four runs and six hits in only three innings of work. Wednesday marked the first loss for Beck in five starts. Winston-Salem trailed 4-0 after the third inning, and they would never recover. Two ex-Voyagers, Adam Heisler (2011) and Martin Medina (2011), each chipped in an RBI despite the loss. With only four games remaining in the first half of the Carolina League schedule, the Dash trail division leading Myrtle Beach by two games. Tonight, Winston-Salem heads to Wilmington to begin a four-game weekend set. Righty Jake Cose (1-1, 5.73) gets the nod for the Dash in his third start since being called up from Kannapolis.
Kannapolis (23-41) fell for the fourth straight time last night in a 5-3 loss to Augusta (35-29). The Intimidators did strike first with an early 3-0 lead after three, but they would soon see the Green Jackets even it up thanks to a two-run fourth and a one-run fifth. A pair of former Voyagers, Mike Marjama (2012) and Michael Johnson (2012) would pick up two hits a piece and also score. Euclides Leyer (2-8) got charged with the loss, as he allowed four runs (three earned) over six frames. Ex-Voyagers Stew Brase (2011) and Zach Isler (2012) then combined to allow just one run in three innings of relief. Kannapolis returns home tonight to begin a four-game set against Rome at 5:05. 2012 Voyager Brandon Brennan (3-4, 4.53) will make the start for the Intimidators.
