Batavia Muckdogs are 1 game up in the wild card chase in the NY-Penn League after their victory on Sunday night, but they were rained out tonight. Put a doubleheader on the sched manana.
We love to see postseason minor league baseball to see how the kids react under pressure as it were. So, hopefully Batavia can make it happen.
Hello neighbors, it’s a beautiful day for a DFR. Won’t you join me?
- PJ Walters was touched for 6 runs in 2.2 innings.
- Matt Scherer and Rich Rundles did their best to run out the clock on the semi-blowout.
- Francisco Samuel struck out 2 in 1 mop-up inning. He’s had a rocky year, but I hope he continues to improve his control. Because with control (I know, longshot most of the time) he could be a great relief weapon.
- Tyler Greene (Fangraphs needs to get his link right… stupid bugs) had two hits.
- Steven Hill took an odd path to AAA (through the majors) he was 0-3 with an RBI.
- Trey Hearne got the win for the S-Cards in relief with 2 shutout innings.
- Ramon Delgado, Blake King and Jason Buursma all combined to pitch the last 3.1 shutout innings.
- X-man went 3-5 and legged out a double to spite azru.
- Nick Derba hit a 2 run HR.
- Matt Carpenter and Pete Kozma both had a single and a double. Kozma had a stolen base and Carpenter had a walk.
- Kevin Thomas held the pitchers duel for the Cardinals with 7 shutout innings scattering 4 hits with 6 Ks to 3 walks. Thomas has been much better this year with his control getting more Ks and giving up less walks moving up to the more pitcher friendly league.
- Jesse Simpson took the L giving up 2 runs in 1 inning.
- Only notable hitter was Jared Bogany who was 1-1 with a single and 3 walks.
- Michael Blazek scattered 5 hits in 6 innings giving up 2 runs (1 earned).
- LaCurtis Mayes blew the save with 4 runs allowed in 1 inning.
- Jose Rada has been a very nice surprise out of the bullpen this year. He’s 22, but he was a dominant closer in Batavia this year and he’s moved up and closing again for QC and doing well. 46/11 K/BB on the year.
- Devin Goodwin was 3-5 with a 2 run HR.
- Robert Stock hit his 1st HR of the year. (finally!)
- Luis Mateo and Colin Walsh both had 2 hits.
Batavia v Williamsport was postponed.
- Angel De Jesus struck out 3 and walked 2 in 3 shutout innings.
- Bob Revesz struck out 1 in 2 shutout innings.
- Hector Corpas got the save with 2 Ks in you guessed it, 1 shutout inning.
- Cody Stanley was 2-6 with the game winning RBI single.
- Greg Garcia was 2-5 with a walk.
- Rom Ruiz and Roberto Reyes both had doubles.
