The farm goes 2-2, as Bryan Augenstein goes down to injury with the big club. We may have to say a fond farewell to one of our Memphis relievers, but only for a little while!
New Orleans 3, Memphis 2
- The Redbirds offense didn’t do much, with Bryan Anderson and Daryl Jones accounting for the only 2 extra base-hits of the night. Anderson finished 1-3 with a double, and Jones added his double pinch-hitting for P.J. Walters in the 5th
- Matt Carpenter and Nick Stavinoha both hit 1-4
- Shane Robinson led off with a line of 0-3, 1 RBI, and 1 BB
- Adron Chambers hit 8th and went 2-3 with a BB and K. His role with the Cardinals remains interesting, as he remains below Craig and Jay on the organizational depth chart. With Stavinoha off of the 40-man roster, he might be a Jon Jay injury away from reaching St. Louis.
- Pete Kozma went 0-4 in the 5th spot. There’s going to be even more pressure on Kozma to perform this year with Ryan Jackson knocking on the door in Springfield.
- Tony Cruz filled in for Anderson in the 7th and went 2-2
- P.J. Walters fell to 0-2 on the season with a line of 5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, and 3 K
- Fernando Salas may have pitched his last inning in Memphis for a bit after striking out 1 in a scoreless inning of work
Midland 2, Springfield 1
- It took the Cardinals 13 innings to squeak out 7 hits. In a night full of offensive fail, Ryan Jackson is probably the only batter worth mentioning. They went 0-12 with RISP
- Ryan Jackson continues his hot start after hitting 3-5 with a double and walk. The bandwagon is filling up, folks!
- Tommy Pham led off and went 1-4 with a walk
- Tyler Henley, Niko Vasquez, Aaron Luna, and Alex Castellanos all put up big goose eggs. The only saving grace for Henley & Luna was 2 walks each and an RBI from Vasquez
- The pitching performed well for Springfield. Scott Schneider had a solid effort of 6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, and 6 K. He had 9 groundball outs compared to 2 in the air, and 5 of the hits he gave up were all singles
- Richard Castillo added 3 scoreless innings out of the pen. He gave up 3 H, 1 BB, and 3 K
- A wild pitch by Brett Zawacki in the 13th scored the winning run
Palm Beach 10, Charlotte 8
- 8 of the 10 runs scored came in the first inning
- Zack Cox went 3-5 (all singles) with 1 RBI
- Rainel Rosario belted 2 HR’s in the first inning. He had 4 total hits on the day and 4 RBI’s. Talk about setting the table at the top of the order
- Edgar Lara hit a HR and double. He finished with a line of 2-5 with 3 RBI’s
- Travis Tartamella started at catcher and went 2-4 with a 2B
- Justin Smith gave up 6 runs and 8 hits in 4 innings of work. He struck out 3 and walked 2
Quad Cities 5, Kane County 3
- Virgil Hill made his season debut, and it was a good one. He finished 2-5 with a double and 2 RBI in the leadoff spot. He’s saving his first stolen base for another day
- Cody Stanley, Patrick Elkins, Yunier Castillo, and Michael Swinson had 2 hits each. All were singles
- Zach Russell made his QC debut and gave up 3 runs (2 earned), 5 hits, 4 walks, and 5 K’s in 4.1 innings
- Chris Corrigan earned the save by throwing 3 shutout innings of 1-hit ball
