Fresno 4 (SF + 15), Tacoma 6 (eleven innings)
Extra innings, then? LHP Chris Seddon (3.39) had a hit, a walk, and a K through four frames of work before giving way to RHP Mark Worrell (5.84), who let three runs score on four hits and a walk. Not good. Nor was RHP Mumba Rivera (3.86) letting two more plate on two hits and a K in the next two innings. RHP Levale Speigner (4.62) had a hit and a pair of Ks in the three innings that followed and then RHP Scott Patterson (1.46, W) allowed one hit in the eleventh, which didn’t matter all that much.
The hero of this one was LF David Winfree (HR, 2 RBI, A, 2-5, .268) for hitting a two-run shot in the eleventh to give the Rainiers a walk-off. Additionally, C Eliezer Alfonzo (HR, .275) and 1B Matt Mangini (2 2B, R, .311) both had two hits, 3B Matt Tuiasosopo (HR, 2 RBI, E, .278) had his fourth home run and also his fourth error, and 2B Jack Hannahan (3B, R, RBI, .231) tripled.
High Desert 5, Rancho Cucamonga 4 (ANA + 2)
LHP Anthony Vasquez (2.38, W) got bit by a couple of long balls again, part of seven hits allowed, but it wasn’t so bad this time as they turned into four runs (three earned) as the offense was enough to back him. He struck out four in six innings of work. RHP Stephen Penney (2.55) rung up a pair in the next two innings and RHP Wes Littleton (2.70, S) did the same in one inning of work.
3B Shaver Hansen (2B, 2 R, E, .233) had two hits and a walk to lead the team with three times reached. 2B Edilio Colina (2B, 2 RBI, .302) and RF Johermyn Chavez (HR, 2 RBI, .294) both managed two times reached, Colina with two hits and Chavez with a hit and a walk. Chavez’ home run was his twentieth.
Clinton 6, Kane County 2 (OAK + 1)
Yeehaw! LHP Jimmy Gillheeney (2.92, W) gave up just a hit and a walk while striking out eight through seven innings. Great, great outing for him. RHP Daniel Cooper (5.13) pitched the next inning and two-thirds, allowing two runs to score on four hits, three walks, and a K before RHP Brandon Josselyn (3.12) entered for the final out.
SS Nick Franklin (HR, 4 R, SB, .285) had the best day of anyone at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two walks and his fifteenth home run. RF James Jones (3B, .242) and C Blake Ochoa (2B, R, .571) were both a bit behind, going 3-for-5 and 2-for-2 with a walk, respectively. 2B Luis Nunez (R, .361), 1B Vinnie Catricala (2B, 3 RBI, .283), and 3B Mario Martinez (.246) all had two hits and DH Tim Morris (RBI, .316) walked twice.
Spokane 1 (TEX 0), Everett 10
I think anyone who went here over the M’s/Yankees game probably made the right choice. RHP Eric Thomas (4.18, PO) was having a heck of a time with his command today, pitching just four+ innings and giving up a run on three hits, three wild pitches, six walks, and three Ks. RHP Willy Kesler (3.86, W) entered with the bases loaded and managed to strand everyone, going three innings overall and allowing two hits while striking out three. He also got himself his first pro win. RHP Stephen Pryor (0.82) walked one and struck out a pair in the final two frames.
If you know Everett Memorial, you probably know that there are going to be home runs in a game like this. There were four total, one apiece for CF Ryan Royster (HR, CS, 2-5, .412), DH Mickey Wiswall (HR, 4 RBI, 1-4, .182), C Steve Baron (HR, PB, 1-4, .180), and RF Dwight Britton (2B, HR, 2 RBI, 2-4, .221), and yeah that was a grand slam for Wiswall. The other two batters with two hits were 2B Hawkins Gebbers (2B, R, RBI, .133) and SS Terry Serrano (2B, 2 R, .246). 1B Evan Sharpley (2B, R, .257) added a double and 3B Kevin Mailloux (R, .244) had a single and a walk. Everyone in the lineup had a hit, but we’re missing Rivers on mentions here because he just had a single.
Pulaski 7, Danville 6 (ATL 0) (ten innings)
RHP Richard Vargas (4.50) let five runs (four earned) score on ten hits, a wild pitch, and four Ks in six innings. Not good? RHP Tim Griffin (11.42) let another one plate in an inning+ after a hit, a walk, and a K, and due to hyperactive bullpen management, it wasn’t LHP Ryan Kiel (1.69) who scored that run, as he merely hit one and got a groundout, but RHP Matthew Bischoff (2.31, BS, W), who walked one and struck out three in the final two and two-thirds for the win.
The run that scored was a little interesting. 3B Ramon Morla (HR, 3 R, 2-5, .317) struck out swinging, but since the last pitch went wild, he got on anyway. One out later, the pitcher tried and failed to pick him off, which allowed him to reach second. RF Jose Rivero (R, CS, A, 2-5, .500) singled to put runners on the corner, and then Wood hit a suicide squeeze that got Morla to score. Rivero was then caught stealing and that put an end to that. Beyond Morla’s ninth dinger and winning run, you also had a home run and a walk from DH Henry Contrares (HR, 2 RBI, .333), a double by 1B Andrew Giobbi (2B, .316), and two singles from C Hassiel Jimenez (R, RBI, PB, .226). The Mariners won with three catchers starting. This is funny to me.
RHP Seon Gi Kim (6.39, W) got his record to 3-1 by giving up a run on three hits (HR), a wild pitch, a walk, and five Ks in five innings. Less extreme! RHP Luke Taylor (6.75) struck out two in the next two innings and then RHP Jandy Sena (4.32) gave up two runs (one earned) on two hits and a K in the eighth. RHP Danny Cruz Ayala (0.96, S) came in for his third save with a K in the ninth.
1B Ji-man Choi (2 2B, R, 2 RBI, .511) ran a 4-for-4 night. He keeps doing things like that. SS Carlos Ramirez (2 R, PO, .256) had three hits and a walk, and DH Jose Flores (2B, RBI, .256) added a double and a walk.
VSL Reds 1, Aguirre Mariners 5
RHP Ivan Julio (1.74) gave up three hits and two walks while striking out four in five frames of work. RHP Maikol Guaipe (3.05, BS, W) blew the save op by giving up a run on five hits, a hit batter, a wild pitch, and a walk against four Ks in the last four innings, but the M’s rallied anyway so it was no big deal.
3B Ramon Coronel (2B, R, 2 RBI, CS, .246) had the team’s only extra-base hit, which is interesting in that it was also his first double of the year. CF Jesus Ugueto (R, .317) and C Ivan Ramirez (RBI, .351) both had two hits.
