Minor league roundup: August 20

Three Kannapolis pitchers combined for a seven-inning no-hitter in the back end of a doubleheader. Might that bode well for the White Sox as they embark on a true doubleheader of their own tonight?
Probably not, but here are the scores:

  • Charlotte 4, Gwinnett 3
    • Dayan Viciedo went 1-for-4, but hey — no strikeouts.
    • Tyler Flowers was 0-for-3 with a strikeout.
    • Jordan Danks tripled and struck out twice over four ABs.
    • Brent Morel went 1-for-3 with a double and a K.
    • Lucas Harrell had a nice start: 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.
  • Birmingham 11, Huntsville 10
    • Josh Phegley went 2-for-4 with a strikeout and three RBI.
    • Christian Marrero had two singles and a walk in five trips to the plate.

    • Kyle Bellamy walked two and fanned two over 1 1/3 innings.
  • Winston-Salem 9, Potomac 8
    • Jose Martinez was hitless in five at-bats, striking out twice.
    • Jon Gilmore walked twice and struck out one in an 0-for-3 night.
