Plenty of good starting pitching performances including another excellent start from Trevor Rosenthal. Oscar Taveras continues to crush the baseball, just in time to move his name up the midseason prospect rankings. Full slate after the jump as the system goes 3-3.
Top offensive prospects have big days as the system 4-2 in a full slate of games.
While the major league team had a low scoring day and an effective debut by Joe Kelly, the offenses in the minor leagues went absolutely bonkers. A total of 95 runs were scored by both sides in Cardinals minor league games today and 51 of them off Cardinal bats. Football scores after the jump.
The weakened Memphis lineup could not stand up against major league vets in Chris Volstad and Carlos Marmol and Robert Stock started his first professional game in the second game of a double header as the system goes 2-3.
Plenty of name-brand prospects started tonight for the organization but only Palm Beach, sans a top prospect starter, managed a win.
