On an off-day for the Miami Marlins, the top two Marlins affiliates played.

In transactional news, the New Orleans Baby Cakes placed SS JT Riddle and RHP Nick Neidert on the seven-day injured list.

Triple-A Pacific Coast League

New Orleans Baby Cakes 3, Memphis Redbirds 0

With 2,324 in the house at the Shrine on Airline, Ben Meyer started a combination shutout with Mike Kickham and R.J. Alvarez.

Meyer (1-2, 6.00) struck out six over 5 2/3 innings, allowing four walks and three hits. Kickham came on for 2 1/3 innings, getting five whiffs and allowing a pair of hits. Alvarez pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save of the season.

Offensively, no Baby Cakes (14-10) player had more than one hit. Peter O’Brien hit his fourth triple-A home run of the season in the eighth inning for the final score. Bryan Holaday hit a double, and Deven Marrero scored the first run in the fourth inning on an RBI-single, scoring Austin Dean.

Jordan Yamamoto (1-3, 5.04) got the start and the loss with 2,234 in attendance at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. He struck out three, but gave up five hits in as many innings, adding four walks and a hit batsman for all four runs. Tyler Stevens pitched two scoreless innings, Elvis Araujo struck out a pair (but walked as many), and Parker Bugg tossed 1 1/3 perfect innings to end the contest.

The Smokies scored their first run in the fourth inning when Rodrigo Vigil tossed the ball into right field on a pickoff move. Luis Vazquez then singled another home off Yamamoto. In the fifth, Tennessee added two more.

Seymour brought the only Shrimp run home in the bottom of the fifth on an infield single, scoring John Silviano, but it wasn’t nearly enough, and Jacksonville didn’t score again.
