The Blue Wahoos used a 3-run 8th inning to defeat Jacksonville 7-4. “Thelma and” Luis Castillo got the start and was solid, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts over 5.1 innings. He also apparently did this, which is also a good thing. Gabriel “Young Vlad” Guerrero was 3 for 4 with a double, a triple, and 2 runs scored. Aristides “Heiress Titties” Aquino was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI and scored a run and Brian “Beef” O’Grady was 1 for 2 with a solo dinger, 2 RBI, and 2 walks.

Things did not go well for Daytona on Tuesday, as they fell 10-1 to Charlotte. Jonathan “He lives!” Crawford got the start and, while he didn’t give up any runs, he was pretty much all over the place. He pitched 5 shutout innings and gave up only 2 hits, but he walked 5 and only struck out 1. I won’t go into the bullpen because, well, they stunk. Narciso “You’re A” Crook “Captain Hook” was 2 for 3 with a double on the evening and Shed Long was 1 for 4. Gavin “As I Walk Through” LaValley provided the only run for the Tortugas with a solo home run. After that, Daytona had nothing left.
Up Next: Jose Lopez gets the start for Daytona at 7:05 PM ET.
