Hi All – by now we have all heard the news of the day in regards to Chris Perez being sent down to Memphis to work on some stuff.
Is it a case of Perez being caught between Motte’s excellent spring, his Spring Training injury and only one off day in the first half? Or is it the case of Perez (heaven forbid) being disliked by the Cards brass?
IMHO, I’m not worried and I think Chris Perez will be back up with the big club at the beginning of May. But look at the bright side, Chris Perez is back in the DFRs! The squads went 2-2-1 today.
Memphis 3, New Orleans 8
- Mitchell Boggs got knocked around a bit and what I like least about his line is the 5, count em, 5 walks in 3.2 IP. He also allowed 4 H and 5 ER and he only struck out 1.
- Matt Scherer begs and pleads to stay on the 40 man roster with 1.1 IP of 1 hit ball with 1 K.
- Pete Parise went one inning with one K.
- Tyler Norrick didn’t help the cause with 3 ER over 2 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, but he did have 3 K’s
- Breakout candidate Sam Freeman finished off the game with 1 IP, 1 H, no runs allowed.
- Nick Stavinoha was 2-for-4 with a run scored.
- Bryan Anderson was 2-for-3 with a HR.
- Another country heard from as Jarrett Hoffpauir singled and had two RBIs.
Springfield 8, Jacksonville 6
- Adam Ottavino went 4.2 IP and gave up 6 runs, five of which were unearned, but he was not free of blame as he gave up 7 hits, 2 BB but struck out 4.
- Kyle Mura followed with a solid outing 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB.
- Ken Maiques – 1 IP, 2 BB, 1 K.
- Francisco Samuel – a three outcomes pitcher if there was one went – 1 IP, 1 BB, 2 K’s
- Daryl Jones reinforces his press in the local Springfield paper and he was the hero today going 3-for-3 with a triple, homer, walk, 2 runs and 2 RBIs. He was a double short of the cycle.
- Daniel Descalso 2-for-4 with 2 RBIs.
- Tyler Henley 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.
- Andrew Brown and Brett Wallace doubled, Mike Folli singled and walked, Antonio DeJesus singled and had two RBIs.
Palm Beach 1, Jupiter 6
- David Kopp started and had a blah line of 3 IP, 7 H, 3 ER ,0 BB, 1 K
- Lance Lynn followed with another blah line of 2.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 1 K
- Casey Mulligan was struggling today and recorded only one out and walked two guys, gave up one hit and one run.
- Sugar Shane Peterson 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored. Am I surprised? No. He’s used to playing with the big boys now. Pardon me, Sugar Shane Peterson is not Sugar Shane Robinson.
- Tommy Pham and Oliver Marmol doubled. Adron Chambers, Jon Edwards and Pete Kozma singled.
- Charlie Kingrey had the lone RBI for Palm Peach today.
Quad Cities #1 2, Greensboro 1
- Adam Veres started and gave up the only run for QC#1 – 2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K’s.
- Miguel Tapia did well, even though I’m not quite sure who he is with 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.
- Arquimedes Nieto has the sort of name that gets stuck in your head when you least expect it. He has the game to match with 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K’s.
- Ramon Delgado finished up the game, getting the “save” – 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K’s.
- (Notice only 2 walks allowed for the QC#1 staff today, nice work all around. It is not a coincidence that consequently they gave up very few runs.)
- Marcus Ingram (who I guess was previously known as D’Marcus Ingram. Can anyone confirm that?) singled, walked and scored a run.
- Domnit Bolivar singled and scored a run.
- Niko Vasquez singled and had an RBI. I’ll let HL fill in what he did with the rest of his day.
- Edwin Gomez doubled and Paul Cruz singled.
Quad Cities #2 2, Marlins 5th 2
- It seems like QC#2 plays Marlins #5 everyday, but I guess a game is a game no matter who the opponent in Spring Training.
- Kevin Siegrist 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K’s.
- Mike Blazek 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB.
- Joshua Hestor was on the mound for both the Marlins 2 runs for his two innings with 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K.
- Jose Rada somehow survived 1 IP giving up no runs on 4 H with 1 K.
- Jason Buursma 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.
- Yunior Castillo was the leader for QC#2 going 2-for-3 with a run scored.
- Beau Riportella doubled.
- Travis Mitchell and Brian Buck both had an RBI.
