Memphis 6, Nashville 7
- Tyler Greene continues his hot hitting ways going 3-for-5 with a double. As a first round pick, he obviously had the tools to be a top player. Can we possibly be seeing another late bloomer for the Cardinals? He’s 18 months younger than Brendan Ryan having turned 26 in August.
- Allen Craig was 3-for-4.
- David Freese was 2-for-5.
- Brian Barden was 3-for-5.
- Shane Robinson, of whom we’ve seen little since his brief major league stint, went 2-for-4 with a walk.
- Memphis got another good start out of Jaime Garcia allowing 1 ER over 5 innings. He struck out 6 and, shaky command, walked 3 allowing 4 hits including a solo HR.
- Matt Scherer got hit hard for 3 ER in 1.1 IP including a 2 run HR.
- Fernando Salas walked 1 and struck 1 out in 1 IP.
Springfield 2, Tulsa 0
- Colt Sedbrook was 1-for-3 with a walk.
- Andrew Brown launched his 12th HR of the season.
- Trey Hearne needed 94 pitches to go 8 innings. He recorded a phenomenal 15 outs on groundballs against just 5 in the air and striking out 3. He walked 1 and allowed 5 hits. I still have trouble getting worked up about a player that has 97 strikeouts in over 150+ innings when they don’t have Pineiro like command. With a K:BB ratio just under 2, my long term doubts around Hearne remain strong despite an outstanding season.
- The S-Cardinals continue to ride their live 20-year-old arm hard as he picked up the save allowing 1 hit in a scoreless frame. For the season, he’s shown good control walking just 24 in 74 innings while striking out 81. With groundball tendencies to boot, Sanchez shows why relief prospects are such a volatile market as he vaults to the head of the Cardinal class after this season.
Palm Beach 3, Sarasota 2
- Matt Carpenter was 2-for-5 with a HR.
- Curt Smith was 1-for-3 with a walk.
- Brian Broderick had a great outing tossing 8 innings and striking out 7. With 0 walks and 8 hits, he allowed 2 ER.
- Adam Reifer picked up the save with a 1 walk, 1 strike, hitless frame.
Quad Cities 8, Beloit 3
- Frederick Parejo was 2-for-3 with a walk.
- Jack Cawley was 2-for-4.
- The clouds parted over the River Bandits statement. Rays of sunlight peaked through to illuminate the pitchers’ mound. The crowd murmmured hushed oohs and aahs. Shelby Miller pitched 1 inning and wanted to get a taste of everything: 1 hit, 1 unearned run, 1 walk, 1 strikeout.
- Scott McGregor had a stellar “relief” of Shelby Miller. He lasted 6 innings striking out 9 allowing 5 hits and 2 runs (1 earned).
Batavia 4, Auburn 8
- Luis de la Cruz was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles.
- Jesse Simpson struck out 7 over 5 innings. He walked 1 and allowed 3 hits for 1 ER.
- Justin Smith blew up for 4 runs (2 earned) without retiring a batter.
