Erik here: Sorry if the site was being weird earlier, everything should be ok now.
In addition to the Jaime Garcia injury that was discussed in an earlier post, Joe Mather is also out for the season with a hand injury (I know he was in the big leagues and technically not a “Future” Redbird, but I still consider him to be one of ‘our guys’).
Derrick Goold is asking for his readers to weigh in on 2009 prospects in three categories: Top Rookie, Breakout Prospect and Sleeper. Head on over and weigh in, if you are so inclined.
The only two teams left playing were both in action tonight. All the details are… right here (I’m not making you jump for two games):
- Antonio DeJesus was 2-4 with a triple.
- Pete Kozma and Steve Hill were each 1-4 with a walk. Hill also doubled.
- Matthew Arburr was 1-3 with a homerun and two walks.
- Luke Gorsett was 2-3 with two doubles and two walks.
- Oliver Marmol was 2-4 with two stolen bases and one caught stealing.
- Nick Additon gave up two runs in seven innings on seven hits while striking out two.
- The Casey Mulligan Experience threw 1.2 innings and gave up a run on five (!) hits.
- Samuel Freeman came in and struck out a batter to finish off the seventh inning.
- Pete Parise gave up six unearned runs on four hits over two thirds of an inning. I’m almost too depressed to go on.
- Wayne Daman gave up a run on two hits in 1.1 innings.
- Jermaine Curtis and Shane Peterson were each 2-5. Curtis also doubled.
- Frederick Parejo was 3-4.
- Joshua Hester got the start and gave up four earned runs over 2.1 innings on nine hits. He also was betrayed by his defense, which resulted in an additional three unearned runs during Hester’s time. He did strike out three.
- The bullpen fared much better, starting with Rigoberto Lugo who pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, allowing only one hit.
- Hector Cardenas followed with three scoreless innings, allowing three hits and a walk.
- Daniel Richardson finished the game off with a perfect inning.
