Memphis and Springfield get postponed due to weather as I luck out with a short DFR.
For any of you that might care, and it’s probably not many, I’m tenatively planning to spend the weekend in Quad Cities May 23-25th for the Sat, Sun and Mon games. I’d be thrilled to spend the day watching prospects with other informed fans.
Another article on the Lance Lynn promotion. The Cardinals remain very aggressive with their prospects in promotions. Personally, I think this had a negative impact on Mortensen’s development last year so I hope Lynn spends some time at AA.
- Adron Chambers was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk. Chambers was, well, a weak hitting outfielder in 2008 with a .238/.322/.345 line at Quad Cities. It might be time to take notice of Chambers as he hits .360/.415/.533 thus far at Palm Beach.
- Palm Beach totaled just 5 hits and 1 walk. They did do their best to take advantage of their time on base, however, stealing 4 bases.
- Nick Additon brought his A game with 6 hitless frames. He walked 3 and struck out 4. He had 9 groundouts against 5 flyouts.
- Chuckie Fick tossed 2 scoreless innings for his PB debut. He allowed 1 hit and struck out 2 with 4 groundouts.
- Adam Reifer imploded in the 9th taking the blown save and the loss. He hit a batter and walked a batter to start the inning. They got the lead runner on a bad bunt but Micheal Stanton doubled in one runner. Matt Dominguez then singled on a pop up to the SS (not sure how that happens) scoring the other runner.
- Charles Cutler and Jon Edwards both went 2-for-4.
- Brian Buck went 0-for-3 with 3 strikeouts. He has a .366 OPS so far this season under the overhang of “The Curse of Liam”. Jameson Maj waves from the distance.
- Scott McGregor struck out 4 in 5 innings. He walked 1 and allowed 3 hits for 2 ER.
- Miguel Tapia walked 2 and allowed 2 hits in 2.1 innings. He was tagged for 1 ER as Ramon Delgado allowed an inherited runner to score. Delgado proceeded to allow the go ahead run in the 8th as Clinton took the lead and held onto it to close out the game.
