Welcome to our daily Around the Horn post which will be updated throughout the day/night as we are able to post results from the day’s action. Feel free to check back often and join in on the conversation in the comments section below.


MILWAUKEE BREWERS 4, Toronto Blue Jays  3
The Brewers scored two in the first and never trailed as they edged the Blue Jays by a score of 4-3.  Wily Peralta started and got the win, going six innings and allowing three runs.  Jacob Barnes and Corey Knebel each tossed a scoreless inning of relief and Neftali Feliz worked a 1-2-3 ninth to notch the save.  Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana each homered and singled for the Brewers while catcher Manny Pina went 3-for-4 with a double.

COLORADO SPRINGS SKY SOX 1, Memphis Redbirds 5
Colorado Springs dropped the opening game of their series with Memphis, as they fell to the Redbirds 5-1.   Josh Hader started and was charged with the loss after lasting just three innings and giving up three runs, all via the home run ball.  Tim Dillard, Tyler Cravy and Tristan Archer all turned in scoreless outings in relief while Michael Blazek got roughed up for two runs in an inning plus.  Nick Noonan provided the only run of the game for the Sky Sox with a pinch-hit home run in the sixth and Garrett Cooper singled, walked and was hit by a pitch.

The Shuckers are off on Tuesday as they return to Biloxi for their home opener on Wednesay night when they kick off a series against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.

CAROLINA MUDCATS 2, Wilmington Blue Rocks 3
Jordan Yamamoto tossed five scoreless innings for the Mudcats, but Wilmington got to the bullpen for three late runs as the Mudcats fell to the Blue Rocks by a score of 3-2.  Conor Harber followed Yamamoto on the mound and was charged with the loss after allowing all three runs, though only one was earned, in an inning and two-thirds of work.  Lucas Erceg was on base twice for Carolina, going 1-for-3 with a walk.  Troy Stokes walked three times and stole a base while Luis Aviles added two walks and three steals and Trent Clark chipped in a double.

Three Bees pitchers held Wisconsin to just one run on three hits as they took game one of Tuesday’s doubleheader 4-1.  Victor Diaz got the start for the Rattlers and was charged with the loss after going four innings and giving up two runs, one earned, on just one hit.  Ronnie Gideon reached base twice with a double and a walk while Monte Harrison and Gilbert Lara each added a single and Demi Orimoloye drew a pair of walks and stole a base.

The Timber Rattlers got even in game two, scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh to earn a split of their doubleheader with a 4-3 victory.  The game was tied at 1-1 heading into the final frame, but Burlington put up two runs in the top half of the inning to take the lead.  Wisconsin managed to load the bases in the bottom half however, and Ronnie Gideon ripped a double down the left field line, clearing the bases and giving the Rattlers the win.  Jake Drossner started and went four innings, allowing just one run. Miguel Sanchez followed and was credited with the win after giving up two runs over three innings of work.  Gideon finished 3-for-4 with a double while Mario Feliciano went 2-for-3 and Ryan Aguilar singled and drew a pair of walks.
