It’s a good day for the Patriot League’s division leaders.  Find out why below…

KNOXVILLE SMOKIES 5, MILWAUKEE BEAR CLAWS 3

The Knoxville Smokies kept their foot on the gas, getting another strong performance from rookie Scott Green and toppling the Milwaukee Bear Claws, 5-3.

“We got so much winning that y’all might be getting bored with winning,” said Smokies manager Snuff Wallace.  “Not me, though.  There’s never enough winning for me.”

Green (6-2) put up 7 solid innings on a balmy evening at Rocky Top Park.  He scattered seven hits and struck out six in a winning effort.  Bear Claws LF Josh Castleberry’s three-run homer in the 6th was the lone blemish on Green’s performance.

Knoxville closer Charlie Pasternak allowed a couple of singles in the 9th, but got Milwaukee CF DeRonde Maxwell to ground into a double play to secure his 15th save.

The Smokies dealt a rare loss to Bear Claws righty Patrick McNorman (8-3).  After Castleberry’s blast tied the game in the top of the 6th, DH Adam Valentim’s RBI single put Knoxville back in front in the bottom of the inning.  1B Eddie Battin added an insurance run in the 7th with a run-scoring single off reliever Olen Abernathy.

JACKSON HAMMERHEADS 11, SALT LAKE SAMURAI 9

In a wild contest at Cash Carter Downs in which both starters flamed out early, the Jackson Hammerheads used a five-run 3rd inning to build a lead, then used a procession of six different relievers to hang on for an 11-9 win.

“Thank God the offense showed up today,” said Hammerheads C Clarence Doyle.  “This wasn’t a pretty one, but it was fun.”

Both Salt Lake’s Grant Fore and Jackson’s Willie Lebron failed to make it out of the 2nd inning.  Samurai LF Chip Sparks hit a pair of two-run doubles to knock out Lebron, while Hammerheads DH Damian Deason’s three-run blast sent Fore to the showers.

But Jackson’s big 3rd against relievers Dean Gamble (1-2) and Jimmy Okamura broke a 6-6 tie.  To preserve the lead, Heads manager Bob Henley used a bucket brigade of relievers, including Brett Pollan (1-2), Rick Sheen, Hilton Sircy, Bobby Boniface, Woody Flowers, and even forgotten man Yu Chen, who tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up his first career save.

JACKSONVILLE DRAGONS 9, SILVER CITY OUTLAWS 5

The Jacksonville Dragons went deep four times in the first 4 innings and got a solid outing from right-hander Kyle Palmer to beat the Silver City Outlaws 9-5.

“Man, I love watching the ball fly over the fence,” said Dragons manager Steve Califano.  “This club can beat your brains out.”

Jacksonville started strong, hanging four runs in the 1st against Silver City starter Kevin Jennings (4-4).  LF Rob Hartley launched a massive three-run blast off the Tesla sign atop the left-field foul pole, and RF Roderick Hopps followed two batters later with a solo shot in the same direction.

In the 3rd, Dragons 1B Miguel Soria went deep and chased Jennings.  C Judson Teachout followed with a solo shot of his own in the 4th.

Palmer (7-4) worked 7 2/3 solid innings to pick up the victory, striking out nine Outlaws along the way.

ORLANDO CALRISSIANS 2, KALAMAZOO KAZOOS 0

Orlando Calrissians lefty Oliver Jones turned in one of the best starts of his young career, tossing 7 shutout innings to lead his team to a 2-0 win over the Kalamazoo Kazoos at Bespin.

“I feel like it’s starting to come together for me,” said Jones.  “I wasn’t fighting myself for a change.”

Jones (4-4) limited the Kazoos to a paltry three hits over 115 pitches.  Control issues have been the bugaboo that have plagued the 20-year-old throughout his career, but he issued only four free passes today against nine strikeouts.

After Jones departed, Caddington Smith worked a perfect 8th and Ruben Quesara blanked the Kazoos in the 9th for his 12th save.

Kalamazoo rookie Angelo Rosales (3-6) also pitched an exceptional game, limiting Orlando to three hits and striking out 11 in a complete-game effort.  There’s one pitch he’d like to take back, though: an 0-2 slider to DH Magnus Larson that caught too much of the plate and wound up in the cheap(ish) seats in left for Larson’s 22nd round-tripper, a two-run bomb that decided the game.

LAS VEGAS NARWHALS 7, CAROLINA COMETS 4

In a back-and-forth battle between the Patriot League’s two cellar-dwellers, the Las Vegas Narwhals scored four runs in the 7th inning to knock off the Carolina Comets 7-4.

Comets starter Jeremy Perkins (0-3) made his first start since being shut down in mid-April with shoulder trouble.  He wasn’t as sharp as he had been pre-injury, but he’d managed to work his way out of multiple jams with minimal damage, until the 7th.

With two on and two out, Perkins tried to sneak a fastball by Vegas 1B Brooks Defoor, who managed to hook it just fair inside the right-field pole for a three-run homer.

Narwhals starter Jesse Zepp (2-5) managed to get the win despite allowing 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.  Closer Chris Allen set the side down in order in the 9th for his 11th save.

CALIFORNIA SHARKS 9, NEW ORLEANS SAZERACS 5

The California Sharks scored four runs in the 9th inning to break a deadlock and hand the New Orleans Sazeracs a 9-5 loss.

Backup C Matt Jensen was an unlikely hero for the Sharks; he launched a two-run tater off of Sazeracs starter Darius Tice (5-5) as part of a four-run 2nd, then doubled in the go-ahead run against closer Justin O’Brien in the 9th.

“I’m just glad I can help the team when I have the opportunity,” said Jensen.  “As a backup, it’s hard to keep your swing hot, so it feels good to come through.”

SS Rubin Smyth gave California plenty of extra breathing room with a three-run dinger later in the inning.

Sharks closer Eugene Grace (2-3) cost starter Todd Warrant a win when he allowed a game-tying sac fly to New Orleans C Prince Carlo, but wound up with the win himself thanks to the 9th-inning rally.
