Nashville Sounds (AAA) 9-13
Won 7-6 vs Albuquerque Isotopes (LAD) (box / pbp)

Huntsville Stars (AA) 14-8
Lost 7-2 at Mississippi Braves (ATL) (box / pbp)

Brevard County Manatees (High A) 10-13
Won 6-1 vs Lakeland Flying Tigers (DET) (box / pbp)

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Low A) 7-12
Lost 5-2 vs Clinton LumberKings (SEA) (box / pbp)

I'm trying something new at the end of the stats. I'm putting pitch counts and strikes for each of the starters in; the AAA and AA ones are supplied in the box scores and Wisconsin's are unofficial, being relayed by the Timber Rattlers' Twitter account. (Thank you!)

Oh, after I mentioned Nick Shaw's walk talents, he quit walking. This is much like how I profiled Matt Cline and he stopped hitting. Hopefully this works in reverse, considering my rant about Kyle Heckathorn's walks. As for what happened with Nashville tonight, I should keep my fingers off the keyboard.
