Trevor Rosenthal’s terrific outing headlines an otherwise tepid night for the farm system. Things got ugly in Memphis for one relief pitcher and Quad Cities bats were silent.
Welcome to the Daily Farm Report.
- Cedric Hunter and Bryan Anderson both went 2-for-4 on an otherwise dismal night for Memphis. Anderson doubled.
- Brandon Dickson, despite the final score, actually faired reasonably well. In 5 innings, he allowed 4 runs but only one was earned due to an error by Eugenio Velez. Dickson allowed 7 hits and 1 walk while striking out 4.
- The real goat was Clay Zavada who allowed 8 runs (7 earned) in 1 inning of work. He struck out 2 and walked 1. Albuquerque had 5 hits on him including 2 homeruns.
- Nick Greenwood stuck out 2 in 2 innings allowing 1 hit.
- Kolten Wong was 0-for-5.
- Oscar Taveras was 2-for-4 with a walk.
- Greg Garcia was 2-for-4 with a home run. Garcia continues to quietly shine this season as a shortstop. He’s hitting .272/.404/.414 after last nights game.
- Adam Melker was 2-for-3.
- Trevor Rosenthal had his strongest outing of the year with 7 innings of 1 run ball. He struck out 7 allowing 3 hits and a walk. It’s the second time this year that Rosenthal has made it through 7 innings. He hasn’t held the opposition to a single walk in the game since his first Springfield start when he walked 1 in 4 innings.
- Quad Cities mustered up 4 singles and 4 walks in the game.
- Jonathan Cornelius struggled through 4 innings allowing 7 hits and 4 earned runs. He struck out 3 and walked 1.
