The Miami Marlins were swept on Sunday by the Atlanta Braves. Starting pitching was solid, but again, the bullpen let the club down.

The Miami Marlins minor league feeder system, at the same time, got into four contests from Florida to Iowa to New Orleans to Mississippi.


The New Orleans Baby Cakes activated SS JT Riddle from the seven-day injured list. That was the only transaction for the Miami Marlins system for the day.

Triple-A Pacific Coast League

New Orleans Baby Cakes 9, Oklahoma City Dodgers 11, 11 Innings

With 2,497 in attendance at the Shrine on Airline, the Dodgers (10-19) scored 11 runs in as many innings to top the Baby Cakes (16-14).

With three runs in the first and another pair in the third, the Dodgers took an early 5-0 lead off New Orleans starter Hector Noesi. Jeff Brigham pitched two perfect innings of relief, R.J. Alvarez allowed a run in the ninth, and Tommy Eveld (0-3, 6.75) gave up five runs in 1 2/3 innings for the loss.

In the seventh, Dean added a two-run double to score Ramirez and Isan Diaz, then Matt Snyder (4) gave the Baby Cakes a 6-5 lead with a three-run shot.

Alvarez blew the save by allowing a solo home run in the ninth. After giving up a run in the 10th, Yadiel Rivera scored Lewis Brinson to send it to another extra frame. In the 11th, Eveld allowed an RBI-single and two home runs to take the loss.

Double-A Southern League

Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 0, Mississippi Braves 1, 10 Innings

The Jumbo Shrimp (10-20) lost their sixth straight with 1,529 in the audience at Trustmark Park on Sunday, 1-0 in 10 innings to the Mississippi Braves (15-13).

Jacksonville pitching held the Braves to just two hits. Jordan Yamamoto tossed six one hit innings, walking two and striking out six. Dylan Lee surrendered a hit and a walk in two innings, and Parker Bugg (0-1, 3.31) allowed the runner on second to score with one out in the bottom of the 10th.

Offensively, no Jacksonville player had more than one base hit. Bryson Brigman hit a double, while singles were collected by Magneuris Sierra, Brian Miller, J.C. Millan, John Silviano, and Rodrigo Vigil.

Advanced-A Florida State League

Jupiter Hammerheads 9, Charlotte Stone Crabs 1

The Hammerheads (9-19) tattooed the Stone Crabs (14-16) in front of 1,109 at Charlotte Sports Park.

Isael Soto opened the scoring in the third with an RBI-single, and Michael Donadio doubled the lead in the fourth with a solo homer, his first of the season. Cameron Baranek hit a two-run double in the fifth, followed by an RBI-double from Connor Grant.

After Charlotte crossed the plate in the sixth, James Nelson scored on an error in the seventh, then Isael Soto hit a three-run shot in the ninth to close it down.

Jordan Holloway (2-1, 2.29) earned the win by shutting Charlotte out on two hits over five innings. Colton Hock allowed a run in three innings of work, and Chad Smith worked a perfect ninth in a non-save situation.

Single-A Midwest League

Clinton LumberKings 2, South Bend Cubs 3

The LumberKings (15-13) dropped a 3-2 decision to South Bend (15-14) with 875 witnesses at Ashford University Field.

After spotting the Cubs a first inning run, Clinton scored a pair in the second on a Marcos Rivera RBI-single and a Samuel Castro RBI-groundout. South Bend tied it in the fifth on a run-scoring double play ball. Demetrius Sims, Will Banfield, and Rivera each collected multiple hits in the game.
