The Baby Birds went 3-2 with Memphis, Palm Beach, and Johnson City all winning. Springfield is on its all-star break and State College was rained out after 1 and 1/2 innings. Tyler Lyons (pictured) was awesome in his return to Memphis and Anthony Garcia and David Popkins continue their hot hitting. Johnson City improves to 5-1 and have a very exciting lead-off hitter in Vaughn Bryan. Here are quick game recaps followed by key player lines. (AAA) Tyler Lyons made his first start since getting demoted from the major leagues and was stellar for 7 innings. Jamie Romak hit his 16th HR which puts him in second in the Pacific Coast League behind teammate Brock Peterson. Kolten Wong had 2 more hits. The Redbirds are off on Wedneday, but return home on Thursday. (A+) Anthony Garcia and David Popkins continue their hot hitting as Palm Beach wins again. Popkins is hitting .468 in his last 20 games. In Garcia’s last 11 games, he is hitting .405 with 6 home runs. Palm Beach travels to St. Lucie on Wednesday to face the Mets. (A-) The Peoria bats were shut down and they did not score their run until the 9th when Patrick Wisdom brought home Jacob Wilson on a sacrifice fly. Breyvic Valera had a rare hitless night. The Chiefs continue their series with Quad Cities on Wednesday as Corey Jones takes the mound. (SS-A) The Jamestown Jammers and State College Spikes were suspended in the second inning due to weather. The Spikes were winning 2-0 thanks to RBI’s from Bruce Caldwell and David Washington. A make up date has yet to be announced. On Wednesday, the Spikes travel to Mahoning Valley as Nick Petree will be making his second start. (SS-R) Johnson City pounded out 12 hits against the Danville Braves. Lead-off hitter Vaughn Bryan is fun to watch. After 5 games, Bryan is hitting .333 with 4 stolen bases. Kenny Peoples-Walls is also off to a hot start, hitting over .400. Alexander Reyes gets the start on Wednesday as the Bristol Sox come to Johnson City. (GCL) Jordan Swagerty made his second appearance for the GCL Cards in a rehab assignment and allowed 1 hit and struck out 2 in one inning. The hit Swagerty allowed was to Mets first round pick Dominic Smith and it was a double. 7th round pick Chris Rivera was 0-for-4 in his second game.
