Tonight I saw the new Star Trek movie. It was awesome. An absolutely spectacular display of everything that the action genre should and can be. JJ Abrams produces some of my favorite eye candy (Alias, Lost) and he comes through with a HR on this outing.
The downside to the awesomeness of the movie is that I’m now starting the DFR at 12:54 AM. Link roundup tomorrow – I’m givin’ ya all she’s got captain!
3 games to recap as the QC game was suspended due to spanking* in the second inning – QC was down by 7 already.
- Nick Stavinoha was 2-for-4.
- David Freese was 3-for-4.
- The Redbirds racked up a whopping 9 singles. Somebody get the big boy bats for the next game.
- Adam Ottavino took the loss allowing 4 runs over 6 innings. He’s got an ERA over 7.00 and he’s walking too many batters (4 today). Simply put, it’s not good enough. This is the same kind of outing we saw at Springfield that made us think his prospects to have a real big league career were dodgy. We want the WBC Ott back, please.
- Daniel Descalso was 2-for-4 with a double. I almost expect him to overacheive now. I expect him to do more than I expect.
- Andrew Brown was also 2-for-4 with a double.
- Tyler Hearne had the best game of his professional career. I don’t really even know what to say. Over 6 innings, he struck out 13 batters. 13 flipping batters in 6 innings. He walked just one and allowed 2 hits. He struck out 13 batters. 13! Somehow he did it on just 90 pitches as well (62 for strikes). That’s sick. His lone mistake came on a solo HR.
- Tyler Norrick recorded 5 outs allowing 1 run. He struck out 3.
- Francisco Samuel pooed the proverbial sleeping mattress allowing 4 runs in the 9th on a grand slam. Ugh.
- Shane Peterson was 1-for-2 with a triple and a pair of walks.
- Colt Sedbrook was 3-for-4.
- Matthew Arburr was 0-for-3 with 3 whiffs and a walk.
- Nick Additon had a stellar outing. The soft tossing lefty struck out 7 over 6 innings. He allowed just 2 hits and 1 walk.
- Palm Beach used the big guns for relief letting Sam Freeman toss 2 innings striking out a pair against a walk and a hit.
- Eduardo Sanchez finished things off with a 1K perfect 9th. Either Sanchez or Freeman could probably move up to Springfield to help solidfy a bullpen that’s in shambles.
