This DFR brought to you while working on my Cueto kicks on the back of my couch…
- Kyle Lohse must have stopped just working on pitches and actually started to try to get players out (I kid!) because he pitched much better tonight at a hitter’s park in Reno. He went 7 innings with 9 (9!) strikeouts and only 2 walks and 3 hits. Kyle, that’s how you prove you are healthy enough to return to the bigs.
- Dan Descalso had a solo HR and an RBI single.
- Stav had 2 hits
- Adron had a pinch-hit single and a stolen base.
Springfield was off.
Palm Beach was postponed.
- So far it is easy to see why the Cardinals drafted Daniel Bibona twice. He struck out 8 in 5 inning. He allowed 5 hits and 2 runs (1 earned) and walked 3, but so far so good for Bibona in his first year in the system.
- Justin Smith pitched .1 inning before the delay with 1 strikeout.
- Devin Goodwin, Rainel Rosario and Edgar Lara each had 2 hits. Rosario had 4 RBIs all by himself.
- Justin Edwards started for the Muckdogs and took the loss even though he gave up only 2 earned runs (4 total) and 5 hits in 7 innings. He struck out 5 and only walked 1.
- LaCurtis Mayes pitched the last 2 shutout innings with 3 Ks.
- Pat the Bat Biserta was at DH (natch) and went 2-3 with a double.
- Joey Bergman was 2-4 with a walk and SB.
- Yunier Castillo and Roberto Espinoza had a double.
- Equal opportunity pitching as Trevor Rosenthal (4Ks / 0 BBs and 1 hit allowed) and Cale Johnson (2 runs allowed but 4 Ks to 0 walks) each got 3 innings and Andrew Benes got 2 innings. Bob Revesz got the save.
- Greg Garcia had a 3-run HR on a 2-3 night and a walk.
- Roberto Reyes had a double on the way to a 2-3.
- Patrick Elkins and his mustache was 2-4.
