Minor League Ball Gameday - Sunday, August 16th

New, 96 comments

Welcome to the Gameday! Blake Swihart did his part in Boston's rout, picking up four base hits while Red Sox farmhand Michael Chavis left the yard twice. Tyler Wagner chucked seven shut out frames, Tyler Duffey allowed one hit in six innings, Stephen Tarpley went eight scoreless, and Mississippi Cody Reed punched out 10.

Blake Swihart has what kids these days called "good flow".
