Robert, Madrigal, and Walker keep on racking up the hits. Walker 2 for 4 last night with a double and a walk. He's got his average up to .333 with a .955 OPS.

(2) Birmingham winning behind Lambert's quality start (despite 9 hits) and more offense from by the org guys;

(3) Luis Robert managed to raise his average by going 2 for 3, both singles, but was 1 of 2 in stolen base attempts.

Winston-Salem should have won their game but gave up 3 unearned runs. Kannapolis lost theirs on bad relief from Wilber Perez and Bennett Sousa.

It's a good thing the Sox won.
I was curious about this since his box score line looked good: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, O R. It looks like Sousa came in with the bases loaded and 1 out in the inning. The first batter grounded into a fielders choice on the first pitch with a run scoring and then for the 2nd batter, he threw a wild pitch which let a run score before that batter grounded out on a 1-1 count to end the inning. Sousa has looked pretty decent so far this season, only 1 ER in 7.0 IP. 3 BB and 9 Ks in those 7 IPs.
