Minor League Player of the Day: Tony Cingrani faced just 1 batter over the minimum in 8 innings of shutout baseball. He had a no-hitter through 6.1 innings and finished with 3 hits, 1 walk and 15 strikeouts. Cingrani set career highs in innings pitched and strikeouts.

AAA
Buffalo 9 – Louisville 4

Joey Gathright was 3-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, a run scored and 2 RBI. Daniel Dorn went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and an RBI. Dioner Navarro also collected 2 hits and an RBI.

Pedro Villarreal gave up 6 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks over 4.1 innings while striking out five. Josh Judy gave up the other 3 runs in his 1.2 innings of work. Travis Webb and Nick Christiani pitched two shutout innings.

AA
Pensacola 5 – Jackson 0

Tony Cingrani retired the first 14 batters he faced, took a no-hitter into the 7th inning, and struck out a career high 15 batters in an excellent start for the Blue Wahoos. As of this morning, the MLB.com game story is on the top of the front page of milb.com.

He didn’t surrender his first hit until Leury Bonilla lined a single to left field with one out in the seventh…Bonilla was caught trying to steal second one batter later as Cingrani faced the minimum through seven innings.

In the eighth, Kalian Sams singled, but Jesus Sucre bounced into a double play. After Almonte tripled, Cingrani struck out Joe Dunigan on his 100th and final pitch.

The 15 strikeouts for Cingrani — who employs a fastball, changeup and slider that he’s continually working on — eclipsed his previous high of 13, established over six hitless innings for Rookie-level Billings last Aug. 27. The eight innings were one better than his previous best, established for Class A Advanced Bakersfield on April 20.

Cingrani’s final line was 8 innings, facing just 25 batters, with 3 hits, 1 walk, and 15 strikeouts.

Ryan LaMarre was 2-for-4 with a triple, a stolen base, 2 runs scored, and an RBI. Josh Fellhauer was 2-for-4 with a double, 2 RBI, and a run scored.
