Carlos Peguero was recalled to Seattle today to take the place of Justin Smoak, who hit the bereavement list so that he could go to South Carolina and be with his ill father. Aside from condolences to Smoak, which supersede any concerns I have about production, I don't know what to offer in the way of analysis on Peguero. Anecdotal reports suggest that the swing is cut down a little and that's what we've seen with the fewer strikeouts, and the power remains fairly legit. This is likely only going to be a cup of coffee, but I wouldn't be surprised if they trot him out there Wednesday morning for the heck of it. He's unlikely to hit his way onto the roster now, but the org thinks well of him and I could convince myself to come around with a little more data. I feel bad for Daren Brown, but at least we sort of know that Bonilla can play center, which is where he was tonight.

Colorado Springs 6 (COL - 3), Tacoma 3
LHP Chris Seddon (0.96, L) was finally touched up for a few runs, three (two earned) in all on seven hits (HR), three walks, and six Ks in five and two-thirds innings. On the hill in the bottom half of innings, Greg Reynolds, still kicking around. Those safe picks aren't always so safe. RHP Justin Miller (1.17) pitched the next frame and a third and let a run score on two hits and two Ks. RHP David Aardsma (18.00) came in next! I suppose you can guess that he had some trouble, as he threw just over half his pitches for strikes and had a couple runs score against him on two hits (HR) and two walks. RHP Denny Bautista (5.06) allowed a hit and struck out the side in the ninth.
2B Dustin Ackley (2B, R, RBI, CS, .255) and 1B Jose Yepez (2B, .333) both had a three-hit night, with Ackley adding a walk. That double was his first of the season. Also, 1B Jose Yepez? Are we really straining that much? DH Mike Carp (2 2B, RBI, .128) had a pair of doubles and 3B Alex Liddi (2B, R, .163) had one, which is positive.

Jackson 4, Montgomery 5 (TB - 4)
This game was lost to the sentient Twinkies. Apparently, they are actually buttermilk biscuits, but whatever. I can't be bothered with "facts," I have a box score to parse. LHP Anthony Vasquez (4.50) yielded four of the runs on eight hits (HR) and four Ks in six and two-thirds innings. The dinger opened the seventh inning. RHP Steven Richard (3.00, L) came on for an inning and a third after that, and a little extra, allowing a run to score on two hits, a walk, and two KS. Since Richard couldn't get an out after three batters in the ninth, LHP Bobby LaFromboise (3.60) came in, and he gave up the RBI single that ended it for the Generals.
CF James McOwen (HR, 3 RBI, SB, .356) and 3B Nate Tenbrink (HR, .167) both hit home runs, with Tenbrink drawing a walk. For McOwen, it was his second home run. Someone asked if I think any more of him than I did before, and my answer is still, not after this many games, but I'm starting to get interested. RF Johermyn Chavez (.239) had two singles. He and Tenbrink are two guys who are struggling, but we aren't making much of it yet.

Lancaster 13 (HOU + 1), High Desert 3
Well, this was just unfortunate. The Mavericks ran out three pitchers and each of them gave up two home runs. You know how many we hit? One. You know who hit it? Almonte. Arg. Right, so LHP Jimmy Gillheeney (3.86, L) let four runs score on seven hits, a hit batter, and three Ks in five innings, which is still way better than what followed. RHP Chris Kirkland (12.00) had four (three earned) score against him on four hits, a hit batter, a walk, and three Ks, and RHP John Housey (7.71) let five plate on five hits and three walks in the last two and a third innings. Now the pitching portion is over.
The big hit for the Mavs was the LF Denny Almonte (HR, .333) home run, as I mentioned before. DH James Jones (2B, .111) made the recaps for the first time this season by getting two hits and a walk. RF Kalian Sams (2 R, A, .258) had a hit and a walk and a K, and oh how I wish that hit were a home run.

Clinton was experiencing rain. Unto each season of baseball, a little rain must fall. Remember that during this sweep.

I did post the first minor league wrap of the season today, because it's a Monday. Also, LHP Chris Seddon was PCL Pitcher of the Week, which is cool.

Sacramento 7 (OAK + 2), Tacoma 6
These games have been close, and that surely means something. RHP Blake Beavan (4.02) gave up six runs on ten hits (3 HR!!!), a walk, and three Ks in five and two-thirds innings. If it's any consolation, he got that deep, and it's probably one of the worst starts we'll see out of him this season. But he did give up a home run to Eric Sogard, who is regarded as one of the nerdiest-looking gentlemen in baseball. RHP Manny Delcarmen (4.50) gave up a run on a hit and a walk in the next inning and a third, and that was apparently the fatal blow. Sometime during all that, Daren Brown got himself ejected, when with two outs, Adrian Cardenas singled and drove in a run but got tagged out in a rundown trying to advance to third. I don't know what happened there, but I'm assuming that he wasn't actually ejected in the bottom half of the inning just before Tui got plunked. RHP Dan Cortes (3.68) had a hit, a wild pitch, two walks, and three Ks in an inning and two-thirds following Delcarmen. Yeah, I believe that. LHP Royce Ring (7.71) was brought in for the final out. I guess that was because Cortes had thrown thirty-one pitches by then.
The two big bats for the offense, as far as hit totals went, were 3B Alex Liddi (2B, HR, 4 RBI, E, .156) and LF Johan Limonta (E, .263), who both had two, with Limonta adding a walk. I hope that Liddi is picking it up, but who's to say? SS Sean Kazmar (E, .196) walked twice, 1B Matt Tuiasosopo (2B, R, .214) and CF Carlos Peguero (2B, 2 R, 2 RBI, A, .311) both had doubles, with Peguero adding another walk and an outfield assist, and 2B Dustin Ackley (2 R, SB, .213) had a single and a walk, which raised his average.

Jackson 6, Montgomery 4 (TB - 5)
We won a game today! We beat the team that has a mascot that looks like a Twinkie that achieved sentience. We did not beat the corn though. Today, we lost to River Cats, some awful airplane/bird chimera, and corn. RHP Kenn Kasparek (1.93, W) got his second win and struck out four through seven innings, which is exciting! He also let three runs score on five hits (HR) and a walk which is less exciting. LHP Brian Moran (11.37) let a run score on a hit, a walk, and a K in a third of an innings. He has to drop into a single-digit ERA eventually. RHP Scott Patterson (2.84, S) scored that run and had a hit and three Ks in an inning and two-thirds.
LF Jake Shaffer (HR, 2 RBI, .400) and DH James McOwen (2B HR, 3 RBI, .366) both had three hits including a home run in the game. They're practically twins. Shaffer walked though. SS Carlos Triunfel (HR, .275) hit his second home run, which is great, because it might have been June before we saw the second home run in most other years. CF Brandon Haveman (R, .143) had two hits batting ninth, and 1B Rich Poythress (2 R, .235) had a single and a walk.

Lancaster 12 (HOU 0), High Desert 8
RHP Taylor Stanton (6.52, L) pitched, which meant that I was right, but pitched quite poorly, which meant that I probably would have been happier being wrong. Through four and a third innings, he let seven runs plate on nine hits (2 HR!), two walks, and five Ks. RHP Daniel Cooper (7.20) followed with an inning and let three runs (two earned) score on two hits and a walk. RHP Tim Boyce (7.94) then let another run plate on four hits (HR) in an inning and a third. The last two were split between RHP Ogui Diaz (3.86), who had a hit and a walk, and LHP Jose Jimenez (0.00), who let an unearned run score on a walk and a K.
It was another night for DINGERS. Every time I sit here and try to type up a recap for a game like this, I feel like I'm traveling back to the Kingdome days and writing about a bad Mariners team. LF Daniel Carroll (2B, HR, 2 R, E, .340) had four hits in the leadoff spot and was a triple away from the cycle, which isn't really worth mentioning because no one generally gets the triple. Well, one guy got the triple tonight. We'll get to that. SS Nick Franklin (2B, 2 R, RBI, SB, .333), C Trevor Coleman (HR, PB, .214), and 2B Gabriel Noriega (.244) all had three hits, which is cool because Franklin walked and Coleman and Noriega both actually had hits, but Coleman passed his fifth ball of the year. What's up with that? 1B Dennis Raben (3B, R, RBI, .333) had the triple as one of two hits, and CF Denny Almonte (HR, 3 RBI, SB, .340) was the other guy with two hits, which included his third home run. If you guessed that the Mavericks were tied for the league lead in home runs, you'd be right. You'd also have an unfair advantage because you've probably spent the last four+ years paying attention to Mavericks baseball. Cheater.

Cedar Rapids 4 (ANA + 1), Clinton 3
At least Anaheim's affiliate is the same. That means one more thing I don't have to learn this year. LHP Anthony Fernandez (5.40) started and went five innings, with two runs scoring on four hits, three walks, and five Ks. RHP Steve Kohlscheen (5.63) followed and had a run score on a balk, three walks, and five Ks in three and a third innings. Tandem start in their case seems to mean that Fernandez is out there for as long as seems reasonable and then Kohlscheen tries to take the rest. Also, two balks by the same team in a game? It's either low-A ball or some umpire out there has been brushing up on his rulebook reading. RHP Tyler Burgoon (1.93, BS, L) took the final two-thirds, but scored Kohlscheen's run and one of his own on two hits and a K. Suck.
Some good came out of it all, like CF Julio Morban (2 2B, R, .360) and DH Mickey Wiswall (RBI, .175) both collecting two hits and 1B Tim Morris (SB, .282) getting a hit and a walk. I'm really pleased that Morban is hitting as well as he is, but really, a walk now and then, please.

Doubleheaders! Some walk-offs!

Sacramento 3 (OAK 0), Tacoma 1
At least it was still close? LHP Fabio Castro (3.00) had two hits and two walks allowed against four Ks in five innings. RHP Justin Miller (0.00) then took over for an inning and two-thirds, walking one and striking out one. LHP Edward Paredes (12.60, BS, L) was tagged with the loss as he allowed a hit, threw a wild pitch, and hit two while recording only two outs. RHP Chris Smith (3.60) scored one of those with three hits, a wild pitch, and three Ks in the last inning and two-thirds.
The one run came when 2B Dustin Ackley (HR, SB, .205) hit a dinger in the third. He also walked. The average is low, but the OBP is .340 and the slugging is .359. Those aren't bad in isolation.

Jacksonville 2 (FLA 0), Jackson 3
This one went to regulation-length because it was tied. RHP Erasmo Ramirez (1.50) pitched seven innings and let an unearned run score on two hits while striking out one. Baffling. LHP Bobby LaFromboise (0.00) also had an unearned run score against him after two hits, a walk, and two Ks in an inning+. RHP Stephen Penney (2.25, W) scored that run with a hit and a walk in the ninth. I'll let it slide this time.
With two outs in the ninth, James McOwen (2B, R, CS, 1-4, .259) doubled, and then RF Johermyn Chavez (R, 1-3, BB, .267) walked, 3B Nate Tenbrink (RBI, 2-4, .174) singled to drive one in, and PH Ralph Henriquez singled again to drive in the winning run. Earlier in the game, 1B Rich Poythress (2B, E, .208) doubled and DH Jake Shaffer (.400) had two singles.

Jacksonville 13 (+ 1), Jackson 7
This also went to regulation, with far different results. RHP Andrew Carraway (9.64) threw the first three+ frames and had four runs (three earned) score against him on five hits and three Ks. RHP Moises Hernandez (11.25) scored two of those and two of his own on two hits, a hit batter, and a walk in two innings of work. Then, there was a lull. RHP Steven Richard (0.00) struck out one in the sixth and RHP Scott Patterson (3.86) had a hit, a hit batter, and a K through the eighth. It all went south after that. LHP Brian Moran (10.50) had seven runs, all earned, all his responsibility, score against him on five hits (HR) and two walks with a K as his only out. It was so bad that RHP Scott Savastano (0.00) pitched the final two-thirds and gave up a hit and a walk.
The offense at least was reasonably alive, though the only clear sign of that in the ninth was 2B Kyle Seager (HR, E, .289) hitting a home run, his second hit of the evening. CF James McOwen (R, SB, .313) had three hits in the game, LF Jake Shaffer (3B, 2 R, RBI, .400) added another two, and 3B Nate Tenbrink (2B, RBI, SB, E, .185) RF Johermyn Chavez (2B, R, RBI, .257), and DH Eddy Martinez-Esteve (2B, R, RBI, .167) all had doubles, with Tenbrink and E-ME adding walks.

Lake Elsinore 12 (SD - 2), High Desert 6
This seems like a more plausible High Desert game. Unfortunately, we were on the receiving end of the drubbing and LHP Nick Czyz (6.52, L) gave up seven runs on seven hits, two walks, and two Ks in three and two-thirds innings. RHP John Housey (1.93) pitched the next inning and a third and let a run score on four hits, a walk, and a K. RHP Ogui Diaz (4.50) also got knocked around for three runs on four hits (HR) and RHP Chris Kirkland (10.38) came through the final two with only one run allowed on three hits and two Ks.
On the plus side, there were dingers? LF Kalian Sams (2 HR, 3 RBI, .261) had two, as his only two hits, and CF Denny Almonte (HR, .293) had one as one of two hits. 3B Vinnie Catricala (2B, 2 RBI, SB, .385) led the team with three hits and SS Nick Franklin (R, .300), like Almonte and Sams, had two. DH Daniel Carroll (2B, .286) and 2B Gabriel Noriega (2B, .161) both had doubles, but Carroll walked too. Guti still wasn't active. I'm not expecting him at this juncture.

Kane County 4 (KC - 3), Clinton 6 (seven innings)
Now that Kane County is a Royals affiliate, I don't feel such a rivalry with them. Strange, but true. RHP Fray Martinez (5.63) gave up four runs through four innings on seven hits (2 HR!), a balk, three walks, and three Ks, which was not so good. RHP Brandon Maurer (1.29, W) then allowed one hit and struck out four through the final three innings, which was very good.
CF Julio Morban (2B, R, 2 RBI, .351) and 1B Tim Morris (R, SB, .276) both had a couple of hits in the game and 2B Carlos Ramirez (R, SB, .333) walked twice, and is running a 3/7 K/BB at present. He also did something similar in 2009 and has been close to even the rest of the way, so perhaps this isn't so much a surprise. All six of the runs came in the fifth as the Lumberkings sent ten to the plate. I'd say it was Mariners-like, but it happened too early and they won.

Kane County 1 (- 4), Clinton 2 (seven innings)
RHP Seon Gi Kim (3.48) turned in a solid start, giving up five hits, a wild pitch, and a walk through five and a third innings while striking out four. RHP Willy Kesler (2.57, BS, W) scored a run to tie the game on two hits and a balk against two Ks in an inning and two-thirds, but then the Lumberkings walked off and it didn't really matter.
The seventh opened with a 3B Carlos Ramirez (R, RBI, 1-1, 2 BB, .400) walk and a Tanabe single. Phillips then sacrificed the two over 90 feet, and SS Marcus Littlewood (PO, 0-2, 2 BB, .313) was intentionally walked to get to CF Julio Morban (RBI, 2-4, .366), which sounds dumb, and was dumb, as Morban singled. Otherwise, DH Mickey Wiswall (CS, .156) had a single and a walk. Good!

The first of the weekly wraps should be up in the morning at USSM, provided I don't get exhausted along the way and have to stop typing.  It doesn't seem likely this week, but it could hapen.

Sacramento 3 (OAK + 1), Tacoma 1

Déjà vu. LHP Luke French (5.40) gave up a run on four hits, three walks, and four Ks in six innings. LHP Cesar Jimenez (3.52, PO, L) took the loss with two runs on two hits (HR) and two walks with one K in the final three.
C Josh Bard (2B, .323) had three hits in the game. It's as though he wants a major league job or something. LF Matt Tuiasosopo (2B, RBI, .211) and SS Sean Kazmar (2B, .205) both had doubles.

Jacksonville 8 (FLA + 2), Jackson 7 (eleven innings)
Alas, they are more Jackson-y than we. RHP Jarrett Grube (3.97, E) pitched five and third innings and let five runs (four earned) plate on seven hits, a hit batter, two walks, and a K. RHP Stephen Penney (3.18) pitched the next inning and two-thirds and let a run score on three hits and two Ks, then RHP Josh Fields (0.00) came on for two and two-thirds and had a hit batter, a walk, and a K. The final two pitchers both came on for two-thirds of an inning, LHP Bobby LaFromboise (3.60) letting two runs score on two hits (HR) and a walk and RHP Steven Richard (0.00) scoring two of those on two hits.
The offense had a lot going for it throughout the game. I'd highlight SS Carlos Triunfel (2B, HR, 3 R, .278) for his three hits and a walk, as one of the hits was a home run to keep it tied in the tenth. CF James MCOwen (RBI, .324), DH Rich Poythress (2B, RBI, .226), 2B-3B Scott Savastano (R, .188), 1B Eddy Martinez-Esteve (2 2B, 2 R, RBI, .273), and C Brandon Bantz (2B, RBI, E, .158) all had two hits, with McOwen, Poythress, and E-ME adding walks. RF Johermyn Chavez (RBI, .237) had two walks. On the downside, the team stranded thirteen and Tenbrink got ejected in the second inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Lancaster 8 (HOU - 1), High Desert 15
Now that's more like it! RHP Yoervis Medina (4.60) gave up all eight of the runs (five earned) on six hits (2 HR!) two walks, and two Ks. It's funny because the forecast doesn't even talk about there being significant wind blowing out. LHP Jonathan Hesketh (1.80, W) had four hits, two walks, and three Ks allowed in the next three and a third innings and RHP Austin Hudson (3.38) had a hit and a K in the ninth.
Everyone reached base, but surprisingly, one guy went hitless. 2B Jake Schlander (4 R, .278) led the team by reaching all five times up, three hits and two walks. Next was 1B Dennis Raben (2 2B, 3 R, 5 RBI, .327), who had four hits in the game including his third home run. DH Nick Franklin (3B, 2 R, RBI, .294) and CF Denny Almonte (2B, HR, 4 RBI, .326) both reached three times, Franklin with a hit and two walks, Almonte with the three hits, and then the twos were LF Daniel Carroll (2 2B, R, 2 RBI, .293), 3B Vinnie Catricala (3B, R, 2 RBI, E, .386), and SS Gabriel Noriega (2 R, .194). RF Kalian Sams (HR, A, .250) also hit his third home run. He struck out three times too.

Kane County 6 (KC - 3), Clinton 1
RHP Forrest Snow (3.86, L) was tagged with his first loss as he let three runs score on five hits, three walks, and four Ks in five innings. So it goes, sometimes. RHP Tyler Balndford (9.64) had a couple of hits and a walk in the sixth, then LHP Edlando Seco (9.00, PO) took over for an inning and a third. That didn't go so well, as he let three plate on six hits, a walk, and three Ks. RHP Matthew Bischoff (2.70) had two hits and three Ks in the final inning and two-thirds.
DH Tim Morris (HR, .278) had a couple of hits in the game and CF Julio Morban (2B, SB, .356) had a double.

So far as I know, everything east of the Rockies was subject to deluge today except Kansas City, which somehow got a baseball game in.

Sacramento 6 (OAK - 1), Tacoma 5
Home opener lost by a run in the ninth. RHP Chaz Roe (10.57) did better than last time out, which isn't saying a whole lot, but he went six innings and let three runs (two earned) score on five hits (HR), a wild pitch, a walk, and five Ks and I'm pretty sure that's a quality start. The bullpen couldn't quite follow suit, as RHP Manny Delcarmen (3.86) had two runs score against him on two hits, a walk, and a K in the seventh, RHP Dan Cortes (4.76) barely held off an eighth-inning threat with two hits, a wild pitch, and a K to his line, and RHP Denny Bautista (6.23) let a run score on two hits, a walk, and two Ks in the ninth. So ended the game.
CF Carlos Peguero (2B, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .364) had three hits in the game. It's as though he's rubbing the position switch in my face by continuing to hit and thus making me comment on it. 2B Dustin Ackley (.194) and 1B Matt Tuiasosopo (.226) both reached three times as well, Ackley with a hit and two walks and Tui with three walks. We're just walking the heck out of the baseball. 3B Alex Liddi (R, .121) had a hit and a walk, as did C Josh Bard (R, RBI, .259). Liddi has still struck out in nearly half his at-bats thus far, so I think that perhaps he's being patient to a fault. He's yet to have a start where he hasn't struck out.

Lake Elsinore 1 (SD - 3), High Desert 2
By July, this will seem like something out of a dream. RHP Chris Sorce (0.69, PO) had some good stuff going for him tonight, with four Ks and only three hits and an unearned run allowed in seven innings of work. He also had a 12/3 ground/fly, and the defense was mostly helpful. RHP Tim Boyce (9.00) got the win and had a walk and a K in the final two frames.
The 1-2 of LF Daniel Carroll (R, SB, .290) and 2B Nick Franklin (SB, .269) both had a hit, a walk, and a stolen base. Only two hits and a walk from the rest of the lineup, but since we won, I'm not complaining too loudly. Guti isn't there yet. I imagine we see him tomorrow?

For those of you who are interested and living in Southern California, Mariners CF Franklin Gutierrez will be rehabbing with the Mavericks over the weekend. It's April, so there's no telling how many of the Tacoma games are going to get played anyway.

Tacoma 2, Fresno 3 (SF + 2) (ten innings)
Loss. A walk-off loss, as all extra-inning losses on the road are. LHP Chris Seddon (0.00) pitched seven frames and allowed two hits and two walks while striking out five. The other guy struck out nine, but lasted six innings and allowed a run on just three hits and a walk, so this qualifies as a kind of pitching duel. RHP Denny Bautista (5.40) gave the Grizzlies their first run back, however, on two hits and two Ks. From then, collapse. RHP Chris Smith (5.40) let two runs score on three hits and four walks in an inning and a third. His stats for the season are only going to give passing consideration to the fact that three of those walks were intentional, but it remains a bad position to end up in. LHP Royce Ring (9.00), I presume was brought in for the double play, but instead allowed a RBI single and so the game ended.
CF Carlos Peguero (2B, R, .321) and C Josh Bard (2B, RBI, .261) both doubled and 3B Alex Liddi (R, SB, .103) had a single and a walk. Peguero also struck out three times. I'm trying to remember if I've ever seen him play center before this season.

Jacksonville 3 (FLA + 1), Jackson 0
This does not seem to be going well. It has been twenty-one innings since we scored. RHP Steven Hensley (2.38, L) let three runs (two earned) score on six hits, three walks, and five Ks. I'm hoping that's a command hiccup and nothing else, but with these guys that have a history of elbow problems, it's hard to know how worried to be. LHP Brian Moran (0.00) struck out one pitching his way through the eighth, and then RHP Andrew Carraway (10.80) rung up one in the ninth.
I can't really say anything for the offense. Three hits, one walk, mistakes on the basepaths. I'll give you this though, Eddy Martinez-Esteve is off the DL now, which meant Johan Limonta got his promotion to Tacoma. The way things have been going of late, expect to see him in center soon enough.

Lake Elsinore 0 (SD - 2), High Desert 4
The first shutout in Lancaster seemed bizarre, insoluble in a way. This one seems to have less of an impact. Perhaps since I've already seen one this season, I'm already past the point of wanting to make a thing of it. The Mavs shut out another team at home. Great going Mavs. There's another game tomorrow. LHP Jimmy Gillheeney (2.00, W) turned in six innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Far better than his own Lancaster outing where he lasted three innings and walked five along the way. He's already had a taste of what it's like in High Desert, so I'm hopeful that he manages to find a way to pitch there. RHP Daniel Cooper (4.50) pitched the next two and had two hits and two Ks to his line and LHP Jose Jimenez (0.00) allowed a hit in the ninth.
The highlight of the game was easy to point to, had to be when LF Daniel Carroll (HR, A, 1-4, .286) and SS Nick Franklin (HR, 2 R, E, 3-4, .250) went back-to-back with two outs and none on in the fifth. Outside of that, 1B Dennis Raben (E, .353) had a couple of hits, 3B Vinnie Catricala (RBI, .387) singled and walked, and CF Denny Almonte (3B, R, .281) tripled.

Clinton 3, Beloit 0 (MIN +2) (thirteen innings)
Clinton finally picked up their second win! RHP George Mieses (2.08) pitched the first seven and allowed two hits, a hit batter, and a walk while striking out three. This was good news in some respects, because the bullpen had to absorb six innings and Mieses probably hasn't hit seven innings all too often in his young career, but the lack of strikeouts is something he's shown before and especially at this level, is concerning. LHP Jason Markovitz (0.00) had three hits, a walk, and a K to his line in the next two innings and then RHP Matt Bischoff (3.60) took over for another two, recording a hit, a balk, two walks, and four Ks. RHP Tyler Burgoon (0.00, W) pitched the final two, hitting one and striking out a pair. Hey, we weren't swept in this series!
With one out in the thirteenth, 3B Ramon Morla (3B, R, .094) tripled and then scored on what I can assume was a botched play at the plate since Morris reached. From there, a single and a walk loaded the bases before a hit batter forced in a run and a groundout scored another. Silly, but effective. SS Marcus Littlewood (.370) had that walk and recorded a single earlier in the day. The Snappers were 0-for-8 with men in scoring position. The Lumberkings were better by virtue of them having fewer opportunities.

Tacoma 3, Fresno 1 (SF + 1)
We didn't get swept today! RHP Blake Beavan (0.90, W) pitched six frames and let an unearned run score on four hits and four Ks, so that was pretty cool. LHP Cesar Jimenez (1.93) had a hit and a K in the next two-thirds of an inning, then RHP Justin Miller (0.00) took over for four outs, allowing a hit along the way. LHP Royce Ring (9.00, S) struck out two men in the ninth for the save. According to his gameday photo, he is now sporting a mustache, and this may be the last night he needed in order to become a legendary reliever, but we may need a larger sampling in order to determine this.
2B Dustin Ackley (HR, .179) homered in his first at-bat. Dingers! It would be something if the hit the home run on the first pitch of the game, but that's just not something that happens with him. It took him six pitches, in case you were wondering. SS Sean Kazmar (2B, RBI, .259) had two hits and his double came in the at-bat following Ackley's dinger. C Josh Bard (2B, R, .263) also had a double and CF (yes, CF) Carlos Peguero (.333) and RF Leury Bonilla (R, .308) both had a single and a walk. Halman needs to come back soon because I don't think my brain can quite handle this.

Jacksonville 2 (FLA 0), Jackson 0
In years past, we had the battle for Tennessee pride. Now, as an added bonus, we have the war to see who is more Jackson-y. We lost the first round :( LHP Anthony Vasquez (3.97, PO, L) lasted seven innings and gave up two runs on seven hits, a hit batter, two walks, and a K. It could have been worse? RHP Josh Fields (0.00) had a hit, two walks, and two Ks in the next inning and two-thirds, and LHP Bobby LaFromboise (0.00) got that critical, last out. If he hadn't, we might have kept going!
2B Kyle Seager (.346) had three hits leading off. DH Jake Shaffer (2B, .435) doubled. The rest of them walked once and recorded a single which was eliminated on a caught stealing. There were only five Ks. Defense?

High Desert 4, Inland Empire 7 (LA + 1)
The warm feelings I was having at the start of the series may have dissipated. LHP Jonathan Hesketh (2.70, L) got the start. It kind of makes more sense to have him in the rotation, it just didn't show this time as he let three runs (two earned) score on four hits, a hit batter, a walk, and three Ks in three+ innings of work. Suffice to say, I don't know what this does for the rotation, or if this is even a thing to try to make sense of, seeing as how the press coverage is limited down there. RHP Austin Hudson (4.15) scored two of those and four unearned of his own on two hits in an inning and two-thirds. RHP John Housey (0.00) scored two of those, with two hits of his own in an inning and a third. Crooked numbers courtesy of the defense. RHP Ogui Diaz (0.00) walked one and struck out one in the final two frames.
2B Matt Browning (3B, 2 R, SB, E, .286) reached all four times he was up courtesy of two hits and two walks. Of course, his playing off his usual position showed and he made one of the errors. 3B Vinnie Catricala (2B, RBI, .379) had two hits, 1B Dennis Raben (2B, RBI, .333) doubled, and SS Nick Franklin (2 R, RBI, 2 E, .150) had a hit, a walk, and two of the errors. Almonte struck out three times, but put up a valiant effort going as long as he did without doing that.

Clinton 4, Beloit 10 (MIN +3)
Our best hope now is to stave off the sweep. There was a scheduled tandem start, but the first four and a third innings went to LHP Anthony Fernandez (6.48, PO), who let four runs score on seven hits (HR), a wild pitch, and four walks against three Ks. So that was the opposite of good. LHP Edlando Seco (0.00) finished up the fifth and then RHP Steve Kohlscheen (7.71, L), who I think was scheduled to get the start, gave up a run on three hits, a wild pitch, and two Ks in the sixth. From there, a collapse on the level of the M's bullpen earlier, as RHP Tyler Blandford (12.27) let another five runs score on four hits (HR), three walks, and three Ks in the final two innings.
3B Ramon Morla (2B, R, CS, .074) had the only double for the Lumberkings. On the plus side, he had a hit. CF Julio Morban (R, .357), RF Kevin Rivers (R, .333), and C Steve Baron (R, 2 RBI, .250) all had two hits and 2B Carlos Ramirez (.500) had a single and two walks. The Lumberkings were 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position and the Snappers were 5-for-10. That would seem to do it.

I kept forgetting to post this even though it's pretty interesting. Baseball America compiled a list of the youngest players in each league and there was Mariners representation throughout. Robles ranked third in the AL, even though he doesn't technically count, so let's just go with Pineda as the #4. Robles would still be eighth in the PCL anyway, but instead, we get Blake Beavan at #10, then on down the line, Erasmo Ramirez and Triunfel as #1 and #5 in the Southern League, Nick Franklin as #9 in the Cal League, and Marcus Littlewood and Julio Morban as #5 and #9 in the Midwest. Youth movement!

Tacoma 2, Fresno 10 (SF + 2)
This was unfortunate. LHP Luke French (8.00, E, L) was pulled after five innings, having given up six runs (two earned) on eleven hits (HR), a walk, and four Ks. Churchill says French isn't looking so hot. RHP Dan Cortes (5.79) let three more runs score on five hits (HR) and a K and then LHP Edward Paredes (8.31) scored one of those and one of his own on three hits in an inning and a third. I'd say at least there were strikes for Paredes this time, but I'm a bit bummed by the future bullpen projections.
The most exciting thing for the offense was that DH Mike Carp (HR, .100) went yard, even if he struck out the other three times. CF (yes, CF) Carlos Peguero (RBI, SB, .333) had a single and two walks and there are only so many things about that line that I'm capable of processing at once. It seems that Mike Wilson is now hurting, which makes sense, what with it being an odd year, and so 3B Jetsy Extrano (E, .333) made his debut, going 1-for-3 with a walk as Tui was moved to the outfield and Liddi went to first. I can die happy knowing that if nothing else, Jetsy Extrano was one step away from the big leagues.

High Desert 1, Inland Empire 3 (LA 0)
Sometime in the seventh inning, the game stopped updating for a few hours, and when I got back, it was like this. RHP Yoervis Medina (2.45, L) gave up two runs on six hits and four Ks in six frames of work, which isn't bad work at all for a loss. RHP Chris Kirkland (2.25, E) had a run score against him on three hits and a K in the next inning and a third and RHP Daniel Cooper (9.00) recorded the final two outs.
The good news coming out of this game was that SS Nick Franklin (3B, R, .125) got his first two hits of the season. Where the offense was concerned though, it was pretty much the only news.

Clinton 0, Beloit 1 (MIN + 2)
At the end of the season, this will still probably rank as one of the most heartbreaking losses of the year, as the Lumberkings only allowed one hit and still lost. RHP Forrest Snow (3.00) lived up to his ace billing the second time around, pitching six frames and allowing just two walks while striking out eight. RHP Matt Bischoff (6.00) allowed the one hit, which wasn't even a home run, but a measly single to advance a runner who later scored on a sac fly. Bischoff also had a walk and a K. RHP Tyler Burgoon (0.00) had a K in the eighth, but ugh, agony.
For the offense, SS Marcus Littlewood (.471) and RF Kevin Rivers (2B, .294) both had two hits, but Littlewood managed to walk too. Lumberkings pitchers recorded ten Ks, but the lineup struck out fifteen times. And here I was thinking that we had managed to discourage that tendency.

Mariners!

Down on the farm, we have our first significant injury of the season. Greg Halman was hit on the wrist by a pitch last night. I initially thought that he was probably just pulled because the Rainiers were being blown out at the time and why not, but Mike Curto says Halman is on the DL now and is having x-rays done. The move freed up the roster space to bring in tonight’s starter in Fabio Castro, but one would prefer other means. I would guess that Bonilla continues to get trotted out there most of the time, but others have said Mike Wilson.

Tacoma 6, Fresno 7 (SF + 1)
LHP Fabio Castro (6.75, L) pitched four innings and gave up six runs (three earned) on nine hits (HR), two walks, and four Ks. I had to coax my brain into remembering that the F, in the “Castro, F” that I saw in the box score did not stand for “Fidel.” I wonder how long that’s going to happen. RHP Manny Delcarmen (0.00) had three hits and a hit batter, but struck out four in two innings, so some good, some bad. RHP Denny Bautista (3.86) walked one and struck out two and that one walk came around to score as LHP Royce Ring (18.00) allowed a hit while striking out the last two batters. Boo to that.
The offense put up a fight at least. LF Leury Bonilla (R, 2 RBI, .500) had three hits and a walk batting ninth. That meant that CF Mike Wilson (2B, 2 R, .294) was our man in the middle there, which given his ST play is kind of scary but okay. He had two hits and a walk. Also awesome. 2B Dustin Ackley (E, .158) and 1B Matt Tuiasosopo (2 RBI, .333) both had two walks, but Tui added a hit. RF Carlos Peguero (HR, 2 R, E, .316) had a home run and a walk. One of those things manages to be more interesting to me than the other, but I’d be going against consensus there.

Jackson 3, Mississippi 0 (ATL - 1)
The first of many five-game series ends in a win. RHP Kenn Kasparek (0.00, W) pitched a solid game, giving up three hits and a walk in seven innings of work. I want to be more excited, but he only struck out three. If you see any of Mr. Kasparek’s missing Ks, please return them to him. RHP Moises Hernandez (13.50) and RHP Stephen Penney (3.00, S) split the final two innings and each had a hit, a wild pitch, and a K. They did not have the same groundouts and flyouts, however.
1B Rich Poythress (HR, 2 RBI, .250) and RF Johermyn Chavez (HR, .250) both had dingers, Chavez’ as one of two hits. The sight of home runs pleases me. 2B Kyle Seager (CS, .273) had a single and two walks from the leadoff spot. More walks than Ks for him thus far. LF Jake Shaffer (2B, R, SB, .474) added two hits and SS Carlos Triunfel (2B, .300) had a double.

High Desert 6, Inland Empire 0 (LA – 1)
Inland Empire! Oh, to pitch in a real park. Actually, it’s really more on the opposite end of the spectrum for park factors, but it’s always a little uncomfortable to go back knowing that the Dodgers will have to leave before they want to drop the affiliation, like running into an ex-girlfriend with her new guy who has no discernable flaws and a stable income. Actually, with the McCourt divorce, that’s probably not so apt. Baseball! LHP Nick Czyz (0.00, W) did indeed get the start and it was the best we’ve seen out of a Mavericks starter yet, as he went six frames and allowed two hits and a walk while striking out five. He can keep on doing that if he feels like it. LHP Jose Jimenez (0.00) struck out one in the next two innings and then RHP Tim Boyce (18.00) allowed two hits in the ninth. The Sixers also had a Jose Jimenez on their team, but he was catching and allowed a passed ball. This seems confusing. Let’s move on to something else.
LF Daniel Carroll (2 R, SB, CS, PO, .353) had a hit and three walks. Basebpath antics aside, this is worth isolating because with his next walk, he’ll have more than a quarter of his total from last season. 2010 K/BB: 94/21. 2011 K/BB: 4/5. DH Dennis Raben (HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, .409), 1B Vinnie Catricala (R, .364), CF Denny Almonte (2B, 2 RBI, CS, .350), 3B Jake Schlander (.182), and C Trevor Coleman (2B, .300) all had two hits, and Coleman and Schlander added walks. Coleman is hitting! RF Kalian Sams (2B, R, .250) also doubled. The only Maverick that didn’t have a hit was Nick Franklin. Awk-ward.

Clinton 2, Beloit 7 (MIN + 1)
Tonight, the Lumberkings were beaten by Beloit’s famed snapping turtles. They made it snappy too, as the game lasted two and a half hours. RHP Seon Gi Kim (7.20, E, L), of South Korea, pitched five innings and gave up the same number of runs (four earned) on seven hits, a wild pitch, a walk, and two Ks. He was opposed by Russian LHP Andrei Lobanov. I wanted us to have a good Russian pitcher! Arg. Why do the Twins have to have better European scouting than us? What? Oh, the game. RHP Willy Kesler (1.69) pitched the final three frames and let two runs (one earned) score on two hits (HR) and three Ks. Now you know.
CF Matt Cerione (SB, .200) and 2B Stefan Romero (2B, .222) both had two hits in the game and RF Julio Morban (SB, E, .421), DH Tim Morris (R, .357), and SS Marcus Littlewood (RBI, .429), batting eighth again, all had a hit and a walk. Not a bad offense, but certainly insufficient.

Tacoma 3, Sacramento 11 (OAK 0)
Today, I feel like I can say decisively that the Rainiers were worse than the Mariners. RHP Chaz Roe (37.80, L) gave up seven runs on five hits (HR), a wild pitch, two hit batters, three walks, and two Ks, all in an inning and two-thirds. That's a lot of action for a small span like that. LHP Edward Paredes (9.00) scored just one of those, but had three runs of his own score against him after a hit, a hit batter, four walks, and a K. I don't know if I'm officially or unofficially worried about his command. LHP Cesar Jimenez (2.25) pitched the next two and a third innings and had a run score against him on five hits while striking out five. That last part is kind of wacky. RHP Justin Miller (0.00) pitched two after that and had a walk, a wild pitch, and a K, then RHP Chris Smith (0.00) pitched the final frame and had a hit, a walk, and two Ks.
1B Matt Tuiasosopo (RBI, SB, .333) had three hits in the game, but people are bound to be more interested in the fact that DH Mike Wilson (HR, .214) had two hits and one of them left the park. CF Greg Halman (2B, R, SB, .231) and C Josh Bard (2B, .250) both had doubles. Halman still hasn't struck out yet, which is quite unexpected. I did, however, suggest that Leury Bonilla would be the back-up center fielder and that definitely happened today.

Jackson 2, Mississippi 1 (ATL 0) (ten innings)
Based off this sampling, the Generals will either win all of their extra inning games, or only win extra inning games, or only win when Rowdy Hardy is on the mound. RHP Jarrett Grube (1.50) started and had a pretty typical Jarrett Grube start, going six frames and letting a run score on four hits (HR), a wild pitch, a walk, and three Ks. RHP Josh Fields (0.00) had a hit and strikeout through the next two innings and then LHP Brian Moran (0.00, W) had two hits and a walk in the final too, which wasn't good, but didn't really hurt us either.
We could have won by a wider margin. The team left seven men on, and was 1-for-10 with men in scoring position. Bantz struck out twice to end an inning with men in scoring position. To get to the positives, because hey, we won, the tenth had LF James McOwen (2B, R, 2-3, BB, .417) single and then move to second on a sacrifice. Triunfel was intentionally walked (what) and then Seager reached on a botched force attempted which allowed McOwen to score. Manufacturing runs! Wait, hold on, I think these are seconds… The two through four batters were also all right, as CF Brandon Haveman (2B, R, .077) had a double, DH Jake Shaffer (.500) had two singles, and 1B Rich Poythress (CS, .231) had a single and a walk. I would encourage Poythress' walking tendencies, but the stolen base attempt doesn't seem like the right choice.

High Desert 3, Lancaster 1 (HOU 0)
Another low scoring game? How delightfully absurd! RHP Chris Sorce (1.50, W) got the win after going six innings and allowing one run to score on three hits and three Ks. I still don't really know what to think of him in the rotation, what with the former closer reputation and all, but if he wants to do this more often in spite of the climate, I'm for it. LHP Jonathan Hesketh (0.00) had a hit, two walks, and two Ks in the next two innings and then RHP Ogui Diaz (0.00, S) walked one and struck out one in the ninth. Ogui Diaz: Closer. It's a surprise to us all.
C Andrew Giobbi (2B, .667) worked quickly to earn the team's favor, collecting two hits in the game. 2B Gabriel Noriega (R, RBI, .214) did the same. RF Kalian Sams (3B, R, .250) had a triple and two Ks. At least part of that seems right. Nick Franklin was back in the lineup too. Don’t everyone go freaking out on me.

Burlington 4 (OAK + 2), Clinton 3 (ten innings)
This had some interesting ups and downs. RHP Brandon Maurer (2.25) had two runs (one earned) allowed on four hits, a wild pitch, a balk, and a walk against six KS in four innings. Well played, Maurer. RHP Fray Martinez (2.25) had a run score against him on also four hits and a walk against two Ks in the next four innings. They're trading starts just like Kohlscheen and Fernandez are doing. RHP Tyler Blandford (0.00, L) let an unearned run score on two hits, a balk, and two Ks, and what I'll take away from that is not so much the loss as the lack of walks. LHP Jason Markovitz (0.00) recorded the last out of that inning BUT IT WAS ALREADY TOO LATE.
The player of the game, for both good and ill, is SS Anthony Phillips (HR, E, .111) for doing two unlikely things. One is hitting a home run to tie it in the ninth. Phillips has a career .223/.309/.313 line and was listed in last year's media guide as 5'9 and 170 lbs, so the odds of him hitting a tying home run would be roughly the same as Chone Figgins doing it. The second unlikely thing was making a throwing error, his second of the year, which let the run score. Phillips has stayed around in spite of his hitting because he's regarded as a good glove. So he both gave the Lumberkings a chance and cost them the game. RF Julio Morban (2 R, .467) had four hits, 2B Stefen Romero (.143) and 1B Tim Morris (.364) both had two, and DH Mickey Wiswall (RBI, .200) had a single and a walk. Morla struck out four times. Worried.
