Memphis 5, Oklahoma City 2
- Steve Hill was 1-for-3 with a HR.
- Aaron Luna was 2-for-2 with a double, a HR and a walk. Luna’s walk rate at Memphis has come back to down to earth but his power has spiked a bit too. Will be interesting to watch what he develops into with more time at AAA.
- Maikel Cleto had a rough start. He walked 4 in 5 innings allowing 2 runs on 3 hits. He struck out 6.
- Pete Parise followed up with a pair of scoreless innings allowing 1 hit.
- Bryan Augenstein and Victor Marte finished the game with scoreless 8th and 9th innings. Marte picked up his 14th save.
Springfield 9, Frisco 6
- Ryan Jackson was 3-for-5 with a double. Jackson’s having some every other month syndrome going on. Take a look at his slash stats.
- Zach Cox was 2-for-5.
- Chris Swauger was 2-for-5.
- Shelby Miller pitched another strong game going 6 innings allowing 2 runs on 6 hits. He struck out 5 and walked 0. Miller needed 90 pitches to get through the start recording 7 of his 8 outs on balls in play via the groundout.
- Nick Greenwood pitched a scoreless inning striking out 1.
Palm Beach 2, Bradenton 3
- Greg Garcia was 1-f0r-3 with a walk.
- Xavier Scruggs was 2-for-4.
- Domnit Bolivar went 2-for-3 with a homerun.
- Kevin Siegrist went 6 innings allowing 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks. He struck out 3 and showed good groundball rates with 9-2 FO:GO. Siegrist has been in the system for 4 years now being drafted out of community college in 2008 at the age of 18. He’s shown an improved strikeout rate this season but needs to get the walks under control to stick as a starting pitcher.
- Jordan Swagerty pitched a 1 hit, 1 K inning of relief. Personally, I hate the move to the pen with Swagerty even though it is temporary. With a flagging relief corp throughout the minor league system, the Cardinals have take advantage of promotions and new draftees to bolster the ranks in the bullpens. That said, I think Swagerty is a reliever long term.
Quad Cities 3, Clinton 5
- Kolten Wong was 0-for-5. Still no strikeouts.
- Ronnie Gil was 3-for-3 with a double and a walk.
- Nick Longmire was 1-for-3 with a walk. I look forward to seeing Longmire at the end of the month. He’s one of those guys that I liked a lot coming out of the draft and has fallen flat in his second year of professional ball.
- Colin Walsh was 1-for-3 with a walk.
- Seth Blair pitched 5.2 innings allowing 3 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 2.
- Justin Edwards struck out 3 in 1.1 IP while walking 1.
Batavia 6, Jamestown 8
- Mike O’Neill was 1-for-4 with a walk.
- Joe Bergman was 2-for-5.
- Jeremy Patton and Romulo Ruiz both went 2-for 5 with a HR.
- David Medina and Juan Castillo both went 2-for-5 with a double. Medina also homered.
- Another impressive outing for Michael (Seth) Maness who went 6 strong innings striking out 5 while walking just 1. He allowed 1 hit and 1 unearned run. Of his 12 outs on balls in play, 11 were on the ground.
- Adam Bileckyj was roughed up in relief allowing 4 runs on 4 hits and a walk in 0.1 IP.
- Ricky Martinez took the BS and the loss during his 1.2 IP. He allowed 4 hits for 3 runs (2 earned) while striking out 1.
Johnson City 5, Pulaski 4 (10 innings)
- David Washington, 1B, went 2-for-4 with a walk.
- David Bergin, DH, went 4-for-5 with a double.
- Roberto de la Cruz went 2-for-4 with a double. In a limited number of ABs, de la Cruz is finally hitting with a .875 OPS. At 19, he’s still young but I’ll readily admit to prospect fatigue on my part.
- Jose Pasen pitched 5.2 innings allowing 2 hits and 2 walks for 2 ER. He struck out 3.
- Manuel de la Cruz struck out 3 in 1.1 perfect relief innings.
- Dyllon Nuernberg picked up the win walking 2 and striking out 2 in the 10th.
