  • Mario Feliciano, C – Carolina Mudcats – Milwaukee Brewers –– 3-5, 2 HR (5,6), 3R, 5RBi, K – – The Brewers CBB round pick out of the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy in 2016 posted his second three-hit game of the season in grand fashion, belting his fifth and sixth homers on the season, and driving in a season-high five runs in a 9-7 slugfest win over Myrtle Beach. The 6’1″- 195 lb. righty grounded out in the first, struck out in the fourth, and singled in the sixth, but saved his best for last, clubbing two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth scoring Tristen Lutz, bringing the Mudcats within a run of the Pelicans. After a clean top of the ninth by Carolina reliever Rodrigo Benoit, Feliciano came up again in the ninth. With shortstop Devin Hairston on base via shortstop Jhonny Bethencourt‘s throwing error and Tristen Lutz grounding into a force out, shifting Hairston to third, with Lutz on first, the Brewers #14 ranked prospect launched a three-run walk off blast to right-center, giving the Mudcats a thrilling victory.
