Memphis 5, New Orleans 3
- Ruben Gotay was 2-for-4 with a walk.
- Mark Hamilton was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. I’ve never been terribly high on Hamilton myself but I’d be curious what he could do if he was actually healthy for a full season.
- Matt Pagnozzi was 3-for-5 with a double.
- A nice outing from PJ Walters who went 7 innings allowing just 1 run on 6 hits. He struck out 6. Walters is striking out more than a batter an inning on the season with 4:1 K:BB rates. The worry has to be that he’s the Cardinals version of Yusmeiro Petit and the stuff just never plays at the majors.
- Rich Rundles failed to retire a batter allowing 2 runs on 3 hits.
- Josh Kinney relieved Rundles getting a pair of strikeouts and 1 hit in an inning of work.
- Fernando Salas closed out the game with a scoreless 1-hit 9th.
Springfield 1, NW Arkansas 10 (7 innings)
- Springfield was two hit with Chris Swauger tripling and Matt Carpenter doubling for the only hits. The team collected a measly two walks as well.
- Nick Additon lasted 5 innings allowing 4 runs on 5 hits while striking out 4.
- Gary Daley got lit up for 5 ER while retiring just 1 hitter. He allowed 3 hits and 2 walks.
Springfield 11, NW Arkansas 4 (7 innings)
- Antonio DeJesus was 2-for-4 with a walk.
- Tommy Pham was 1-for-3 with a pair of walks.
- Matt Carpenter was 2-for-4 with a double and a walk. Carpenter’s numbers have cooled a bit coming back into the good territory rather than the excellent. He’s hitting .318 on the season and drawing walks (OBP over .400) with good power (ISO over .150). The question for me is how good his defense is. If he’s good at the hot corner, than he’s likely a major leaguer of some sort. If not, the offense may not be enough by time he reaches the majors.
- Steve Hill was 3-for-3 with a double, a HR and a walk.
- Chris Swauger was 2-for-5 with a double and a triple.
- Brian Broderick was touched up for 9 hits in 6.1 innings but somehow manged to escape most of the damage allowing just 4 runs (3 earned) while striking out 3.
- Blake King retired the last two batters of the game.
Palm Beach 2, Lakeland 6
Quad Cities 13, Fort Wayne 5
- Luis Mateo was 2-for-4 with a double and a walk.
- Devin Goodwin was 2-for-5 with a double.
- Edgar Lara was 3-for-5.
- Alan Ahmady was 4-for-4 with a triple.
- CJ Beatty was just 1-for-4 but it was his second Grand Slam of the season.
- A mixed outing for Joe Kelly who went 5 innings allowing 5 hits and 3 runs (2 earned). He walked 1 and struck out 5 with a one more groundout than flyout. I’m a but surprised the team hasn’t backed off of Kelly more later in the season give that he was primarily used as a reliever in college. Kelly continues to put up good numbers though.
- Chris Notti pitched 2 perfect innings striking out 1.
Batavia 2, Jamestown 5
- Audry Perez was 3-for-4.
- Nick McCully allowed 6 hits over 5 innings for 3 runs. He struck out 4.
- Matt North struck out 4 over 2 innings allowing 1 hit and 1 walk.
Johnson City 7, Kingsport 6 (12 innings)
- Chris Edmundson was 2-for-5 with a triple and a walk.
- Philip Cerreto was 2-for-4 with a double and a pair of walks.
- Roberto Reyes was 2-for-2.
- Boone Whiting allowed 6 hits and 6 runs (3 earned) over 3.1 innings. He struck out 5. Whiting has 31 strikouts in 21.2 innings and an astonishing 1 walk.
- Jeff Nadeau went 3 innings striking out 5 while allowing 1 hit and 2 walks.
- Hector Corpas struck out 2 and walked 1 in 2 innings of work.
