Thursday, August 25th, at the Aquasox Game at Everett Memorial, there will be Campos Court.

Omaha3 (KC + 16), Tacoma 1
RHP Jarrett Grube (5.63) had a heck of an outing, one-hitting the Storm Chasers through seven, hitting one, and striking out six, but that one hit was a dinger. LHP Fabio Castro (3.93) let two score on a hit and a walk in the next inning and a third and RHP Shawn Kelley (2.89) had a hit allowed in the final two-thirds, scoring two of Castro's runs.
RF Mike Wilson (R, .327) had three singles, LF Greg Halman (2B, SB, .326) and CF Michael Saunders (2B, RBI, .288) both had two hits, and 3B Alex Liddi (.258) and SS Carlos Triunfel (.214) both had a hit and a walk.

Tennessee 3 (CHC + 6), Jackson 2
A close game is something with this kind of competition. RHP Steven Hensley (5.00, L) let three runs score on six hits (HR), two walks, and six Ks in six and two-thirds innings. LHP Brian Moran (4.83) allowed a hit in the next frame and a third and RHP Stephen Pryor (1.50) struck out two in the eighth.
SS Nick Franklin (3B, R, RBI, SB, .632) came back to double-A and responded by immediately picking up three hits. 1B Vinnie Catricala (3B, RBI, .361) had two hits and CF Kuo-hui Lo (SB, .216) and 2B Gabriel Noriega (R, .316) both had a couple of walks.

High Desert 1, San Jose 5 (SF + 7)
RHP Chris Sorce (4.86, L) gave up five runs on nine hits, two walks, a hit batter, and five Ks in seven and a third innings. RHP Keli'i Zablan (10.13) scored one of those and allowed a hit in the final two-thirds.
There were eleven Ks, so what I have for notables is that 3B Mario Martinez (2B, R, .285) doubled.

Quad Cities 2 (STL + 7), Clinton 5
This gives Clinton a game up in the standings, which is awesome, because they're only two out. LHP Anthony Fernandez (2.88, W) had five innings pitched and let two runs score on four hits, a wild pitch, and three walks against ten Ks. RHP Jessie Nava (3.64) got the next frame and a third and had a hit, a wild pitch, a hit batter, two walks, and two Ks to show for it. LHP Ryan Kiel (3.10) struck out one while wrapping up the seventh and RHP Jonathan Arias (2.57, S) had the final two innings for a save.
SS Anthony Phillips (RBI, CS, .190) had three hits from the ninths spot in the order, and two spots ahead of him, RF Kalian Sams (2B, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .237) had two hits and a walk.

Everett 4, Vancouver 3 (OAK - 8)
RHP Vicente Campos (2.37) started and went six innings with two runs (one earned) scoring on five hits, a balk, and a walk against seven Ks. Maybe Shipers is shut down? RHP Nolan Diaz (6.66, E, W) let an unearned run score on a hit batter in the next two innings and has the devil's ERA. RHP Tim Griffin (2.43, E, S) pitched the ninth.
SS Marcus Littlewood (3B, 2 R, 2 E, .238), CF Nathan Melendres (R, 2 RBI, .283), RF Mario Yepez (SB, .320), and 2B Jorge Agudelo (2B, R, SB. .203) all had two hits and 3B Ramon Morla (RBI, SB, .286) had a single and a walk.

Pulaski 3, Bluefield 5 (TOR + 11)
Further clashes with the team that leads the division. RHP Luke Taylor (8.24) gave up two runs through three innings on five hits and three walks, which has to be a disappointment coming off last week. RHP Reynaldo Sabala (3.67) had a hit, two walks, and six Ks through three innings, which is much more impressive. After that, RHP Bobby shore (3.77, BS, L) let three score on three hits and a walk against a K in the seventh. RHP Brett Shankin (6.46) had a hit allowed in the eighth.
DH Guillermo Pimentel (2B, RBI, .276) and RF Alfredo Morales (R, RBI, .245) both had a couple of hits in the game and 3B Patrick Brady (3B, RBI, .362) and 1B Jordy Lara (2B, R, .250) both had extra-base hits. Marlette also made his pro debut, but he passed a ball and was 0-for-4 with a K.

Peoria Mariners 3, AZL Rangers 4
LHP Nick Valenza (8.24) pitched four innings and let three score on four hits, five walks, and a K. Where with Chen, the command was awful and then improved, with Valenza he went from good command to horrible. RHP Gabe Saquilon (4.79), who has some lesser command issues, had two walks and two Ks in three innings and allowed a hit. LHP Scott Ronnenbergh (5.33) had a hit and a K in the eighth and RHP Alex Sunderland (5.21, L) got an out into the ninth before letting the winning run score on a hit, a wild pitch, and two walks.
SS Esteilon Peguero (2 RBI, E, .282) had three hits and a walk in the game, 3B Roberto Velasquez (.260) and LF Chalres Jimenez (R, REBI, .185) both had two hits, and DH Felipe Burin (2B, .341) and C Christian Carmichael (2B, .182) both double.

Yamasa Mariners 7, DSL Brewers 3 (eight innings)
Yesterday's game was not-awful. RHP Noel de la Cruz (3.79) pitched two and a third innings and let three runs score on three hits, two wild pitches, a hit batter, a walk, and a K in the two and a third innings that he pitched. RHP Ronald Dominguez (1.33)scored one of those and had four hits, a hit batter, and two KS in the final four and two-thirds.
SS Ketel Marte (R, SB, CS, .263), 1B Axel Wel (R, RBI, .267), 3B George Soto (HR, 3 RBI, .232), and RF Gabriel Guerrero (2B, HR, 2 R, .237) all had two hits with Marte adding a walk. 2B Noe Berroe (HR, .218) hit a dinger and walked. It was the fourth home run for both Berro and Soto, but the first of his career for Guerrero. LF Wilton Martinez (2B, .161) doubled.

Yamasa Mariners 8, DSL Cardinals 2 (- 18) (seven innings)
There was supposed to be a doubleheader but the second game got canceled. I believe this ensures that we have won the division. HOORAY. RHP Jose Torres (2.15, W) pitched all seven and let two score on three hits, a wild pitch, a hit batter, and three Ks.
CF Janelfry Zorilla (HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, .323) and 1B Axel Wel (2B, R, RBI, .272) both had two hits in the game, that being the twelfth dinger for Zorilla. 3B George Soto (RBI, .235) had a single and two walks.

Did you know that Sergeant Slaughter will be appearing in the final Aquasox homestand, on Friday the 26th? Now you do.

Omaha 7 (KC + 15), Tacoma 4
LHP Chris Seddon (6.43) let four runs score on seven hits, a wild pitch, four walks, and four Ks in the first five and two-thirds innings. RHP Chaz Roe (6.65, L) and RHP Steve Delabar (0.00, E) when eached pitched an inning and two-thirds, Roe letting three score on three hits and a walk, Delabar scoring one of those runs and having four hits, a wild pitch, and five Ks to his line. That's all Ks for his outs.
2B Matt Tuiasosopo (HR, 4 RBI, .226) hit a grand slam in the fourth. Huzzah! CF Michael Saunders (.283), RF Mike Wilson (2B, R, .321), and LF Greg Halman (2B, R, .322) all had two hits with Saunders and Halman drawing walks.

Tennessee 4 (CHC + 5), Jackson 1
Paxton has been shut down. We won't see him. Instead, LHP Jimmy Gillheeney (7.06, L), who gave up four runs on seven hits (2 HR) and seven Ks in six and two-thirds innings. LHP Edward Paredes (4.08) had a hit and a K in the next inning and a third and RHP Joshua Corrales (0.00) hit two in the final inning.
SS Gabriel Noriega (2B, RBI, .333) doubled and DH Johermyn Chavez (.217) had a single and a walk.

Quad Cities 5 (STL + 8), Clinton 7
RHP Steve Kohlscheen (5.14, W) did better than the other guy, giving up four runs on seven hits, two walks, and four Ks in the five innings he pitched. RHP Ben Versnik (10.80, PO) had a hit and three Ks over the next two, and then LHP Ryan Kiel (3.20) pitched an inning+ with a run scoring on a hit, a wild pitch, and two walks, while RHP Jonathan Arias (2.67, S) walked two and struck out two in the ninth, scoring one of Kiel's runs.
CF Mike McGee (2 R, .279), 2B Stefen Romero (R, .273), and 1B Mickey Wiswall (2B, R, .252) all had two hits with McGee and Romero drawing walks, DH Kevin Rivers (HR, 4 RBI, .247) hit his tenth home run, RF Kalian Sams (R, .232) and C John Hicks (3B, R, RBI, .242) both had a hit and a walk.

Everett 3, Vancouver 2 (OAK - 7)
RHP Joe DiRocco (3.98) ended up with the start and gave up a run on five hits (HR), a wild pitch, and two walks against a K in four and two-thirds innings. LHP Kyle Hunter (0.73) had a run score against him on three hits, a walk, and two Ks in the next two and a third innings and RHP Tim Griffin (2.51) struck out a pair in the final two innings.
DH Jabari Blash (2B, RBI, .287) doubled and PH-LF James Wood (.263) had a single and a walk.

Greenville 4 (HOU - 9), Pulaski 3
We can permit them to win, once. RHP Mayckol Guaipe (4.50, PO) let two (one earned) score on five hits, a wild pitch, three walks, and two Ks in four innings of work. RHP Seon Gi Kim (6.97) pitched the next three and a third innings with two runs scoring on four hits and four Ks. RHP Bo Reeder (4.05) scored two of those with two hits and two Ks in the final inning and two-thirds.
1B Patrick Brady (3B, RBI, .372) and DH David Villasuso (HR, 2 RBI, .216) both had two hits in the game and RF Alfredo Morales (R, .235) walked twice.

AZL Cubs 4, Peoria Mariners 5
RHP Trevor Miller (3.99, PO) went back to having good starts and this time out, he gave up two runs on six hits, two wild pitches, two walks, and eight Ks in six innings of work. RHP Marcos Reyna (3.64) gave up the lead once with a run scoring on two hits, a wild pitch, two walks, and a K in an inning of work, and then RHP Yunior de Jesus (3.60, BS, W) did it again with run scoring on two hits and a K in the final two innings. The M's won so this doesn't matter that much. Baseball.
Do I chronicle an eighth inning? With one out, Higgs singled and then 1B Jose Martinez (2B, 2 R, RBI, SB, 1-4, .265) was safe on a fielder's choice. Ordinarily, this would be bad news, but then Martinez stole second and scored on an error by the shortstop that allowed 3B Roberto Velasquez (2B, R, RBI, 2-4, .247) to reach. AZL games are sometimes decided in such ways. 2B Felipe Burin (RBI, .347) had a couple of singles because it's recognized by now that he does that and CF James Zamarripa (R, SB, .265) had a single and a walk.

The DSL isn't reporting, which either means doom or not-doom.

Omaha 4 (KC + 14), Tacoma 2
RHP Forrest Snow (5.76) pitched seven innings with a run scoring on four hits, a walk, and nine Ks. I am pleased. LHP Cesar Jimenez (3.72) had a K in the next inning, which was good, and RHP Scott Patterson (4.12) let three runs plate on four hits (HR) and two Ks in the ninth, which is not.
DH Luis Antonio Jimenez (.282) and C Jose Yepez (2B, 2 R, .321) had a hit and two walks apiece. 1B Johan Limonta (2B, RBI, .330) and RF Mike Wilson (.318) both had two hits and 3B Alex Liddi (2B, RBI, .260) doubled and walked. That was Liddi's thirtieth double of the season.

Tennessee 8 (CHC + 6), Jackson 6
Bah! RHP Moises Hernandez (6.44) was the starter and gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits (HR), a wild pitch, two walks, and two Ks in three+ innings. I struggle to care. More Paxton, please. LHP Bobby LaFromboise (3.63, L) took the loss as he let three runs plate on four hits, a walk, and two Ks. LHP Brian Moran then (4.96) struck out three over the next two innings, the finest performance of the night, and RHP Stephen Pryor (1.59) had a hit and a K in the final inning of work.
LF-1B Vinnie Catricala (2B, R, RBI, .360) reached four times with two hits and two walks. SS Gabriel Noriega (2 R, E, .324) had three hits again from the nine spot in the order. 3B Francisco Martinez (2 RBI, .290) singled twice, CF-LF Kuo-hui Lo (3B, .246) tripled, and 2B Scott Savastano (2 RBI, .293) had a hit and a walk.

Inland Empire 9 (ANA + 2), High Desert 12
LHP Nate Reed (4.79) stopped being so awesome and gave up four runs on five hits (2 HR), a wild pitch, three walks, and a lone strikeout in three+ innings of work. RHP Jason Buursma (3.65) let two score on four hits, a plunked batter, a walk, and a K in the next two and two-thirds. LHP Jason Markovitz (5.90, BS, W) blew the save op with three runs scoring on five hits (HR) and four Ks in two and a third innings, in addition to scoring both of Buursma's runs, but the Mavs rallied and RHP Willy Kesler (3.66, S) allowed a hit in the ninth on the way to saving it.
RF James McOwen (2B, 2 R, 2 RBI, .298) and SS Leury Bonilla (2B, 2 R, RBI, CS, .278) had three hits. Necessity is often cruel. 3B Steve Proscia (HR, 3 RBI, .333) and 1B-LF Mario Martinez (HR, 3 RBI, A, .285) both had three-run jacks, with Mar Mar adding a walk, 1B Rudy van Heydoorn (2B, R, 2 RBI, .234) doubled and walked, and LF Daniel Carroll (3B, R, .288) tripled.

Quad Cities 12 (STL + 9), Clinton 10
In the last four innings, the River Bandits scored ten runs and we scored one. LHP Tony Butler (3.38) had a sloppy, though not ineffective start as he let three runs (two earned) score on two hits (HR), five walks, and six Ks. RHP Matt Bischoff (3.81) had three (one earned) plate on two hits, two walks, a wild pitch, and two Ks in the seventh, and then RHP John Taylor (9.53, L) came on for a third, letting four runs (three earned) plate on three hits, while RHP Tyler Burgoon (2.47, BS) scored two of those and two of his own on two hits (HR) and a K in the final inning and two-thirds. That wasn't a grand slam. That would have been demoralizing.
DH Mickey Wiswall (2 R, RBI, .249) had four hits and 3B Carlos Ramirez (RBI, .245) had three, but while all seven of those were singles, there were not entirely singles from the lineup. LF Julio Morban (2B, R, RBI, .260), CF Mike McGee (3B, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .274), and RF Kalian Sams (HR, 3 RBI, E, .231) all had two hits of varying distances with Sams adding a walk. SS Anthony Phillips (R, 2 SB, A, .183) had a hit and two walks and 2B Stefen Romero (2B, 2 R, RBI, .271) and C John Hicks (2B, RBI, PB, .239) both doubled.

Everett 3, Eugene 8 (SD 0)
Can't win 'em all? RHP Steve Landazuri (4.55, L) did not have a bad start however, giving up three runs on four hits (HR), a hit batter, and two walks against seven Ks in six and a third innings. Part of the issue was that RHP David Colvin (45.00) couldn't get an out, giving up five runs (three earned) on four hits, a wild pitch, and a walk. RHP Cody Weiss (7.82) couldn't help but score one of those, and had two Ks in an inning and two-thirds.
LF Jabari Blash (HR, 3 RBI, .288) had a three-run shot in the ninth and that was the Aquasox offense.

Greenville 1 (HOU - 10), Pulaski 13
Smashy smashy. RHP Dylan Unsworth (4.94, W) gave up a run on four hits (HR), two walks, and four Ks, which is an uncharacteristically high number of walks for him in six innings. The Astros held the lead for one inning. LHP Jeremy Dobbs (5.85) had two hits, a walk, and four Ks in two and a third innings and RHP Brett Shankin (6.75) had a walk and two Ks in the final two-thirds. It is difficult for me to not add a g to the end of Shankin's name.
DH Jamal Austin (R, 2 RBI, .367), LF Guillermo Pimentel (HR, 3 RBI, .272), and C David Villasuso (2B, 2 R, 3 RBI, .202) all had three hits. Pimentel's next home run will be his tenth. Two others reached three times as well, those being 2B Dan Paolini (R, .283) with a hit and two walks and CF Efrain Nunez (2B, 3 R, .295) with a couple of hits and a walk. SS Bryan Brito (R, .232) had a single and a walk.

Yamasa Mariners 3, DSL Athletics 4 (- 18)
Things continue to be awful. RHP Ramire Cleto (6.49, L) let four runs score on five hits, two wild pitches, two hit batters, a walk, and two Ks in five+ innings and RHP Oliver Garcia (2.66) scored three of those on four hits, two wild pitches, two walks, and three Ks in three innings of work.
The offense got two singles apiece from 3B Luis Matias (R, E, .240) and 2B Noe Berro (R, CS, .216) and doubles from SS Ketel Marte (2B, R, E, .257) and CF Janelfry Zorilla (2B, 2 RBI, .324).

Omaha 3 (KC + 13), Tacoma 2
Omaha is of a different strength from Iowa. LHP Anthony Vasquez (3.21, PO, L) let three runs score on seven hits, two walks, and two Ks in seven innings. RHP Steve Delabar (0.00) had a K in the eighth, but RHP Shawn Kelley (3.12) had three of them in the ninth.
CF Greg Halman (CS, .329) and SS Carlos Triunfel (R, .200) both had two hits in the game and 1B Matt Tuiasosopo (R, .228) walked twice.

Tennessee 11 (CHC + 5), Jackson 6
Tennessee has one of the more potent offenses in the league, in spite of relatively few walks, so I look at this particular series as an opportunity to gauge where the pitching staff is at. I can't give great marks for RHP Kenn Kasparek (4.66, E, L) who gave up seven runs through five innings on six hits (HR), three walks, and five Ks, but only two of those runs were earned, so something else may be at play there. RHP Daniel Cooper (6.49) got through the next three allowing a run on a hit, a wild pitch, a walk, and a K, which is promising, but RHP Stephen Penney (5.09), who I've said had struggled this year a lot more than I thought he would, let three runs (two earned) plate on three hits and a K in the ninth.
2B Scott Savastano (2 HR, 3 RBI, E, .294) hit two home runs in the leadoff spot and is close to double digits now. Let us pause at this time to consider that the home run leader for the Generals, Chavez, only has thirteen dingers this year, and behind him is Shaffer, who has eleven and has hit two home runs since knocking out six in May. 3B Francisco Martinez (RBI, 2 E, .276) had four singles, so that happened. SS Gabriel Noriega (RBI, .267) added two singles and RF Chih-Hsien Chiang (2B, R, .241), LF-1B Vinnie Catricala (.355), CF-LF Kuo-hui Lo (R, .248), and C Jesus Sucre (R, .220) all had a hit and a walk.

Inland Empire 7 (ANA + 4), High Desert 1 (seven innings)
RHP Taylor Stanton (6.21, L) pitched all seven and let seven score on eight hits (2 HR), a walk, and seven Ks, which is different from the Sixers' starter pitching all seven innings and letting a run score on six hits, four walks, and eight Ks.
1B Mario Martinez (.285) had two hits and CF Denny Almonte (2B, RBI, .272) and 2B Jake Schlander (2B, .276) both had doubles and Almonte walked.

Inland Empire 5 (ANA + 3), High Desert 7 (seven innings)
Bwahaha Angels affiliate. The unlikely RHP Stephen Kahn (7.20) started this one out and let three plate in three and two-thirds innings on four hits (HR), a wild pitch, and a walk. RHP Austin Hudson (6.13) let two plate on four hits in the next frame and a third and then RHP Willy Kelser (3.77, W), who had a hit, a walk, and two Ks to his line in two innings, came away with the win.
In the bottom of the seventh, Marcoe was plunked, then there were three consecutive singles by Dunigan, LF Daniel Carroll (R, 1-3, BB, .288), and Bonilla to score Marcoe and leave the bases loaded, McOwen hit a sac fly off a new pitcher, and then DH Steve Proscia (HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, 2-4, .336) hit a home run. AWESOME.

Everett 5, Eugene 0 (SD - 1)
LHP Camercon Hobson (2.30, W) got five innings in and allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five. Man, the Aquasox are just rolling. RHP Bryan Leigh (4.79) had two wild pitches, three walks and a K in the next two and RHP Jeroen de Haas (8.44) had two hits, a hit batter, two walks, and two Ks in the final two.
C Larry Gonzalez (HR, 4 RBI, .253) hit a home run in the fourth, which was also his first of the year, which was also a grand slam. LF Jabari Blash (2B, R, .289) doubled and 3B Jharmidy de Jesus (.322) and DH Ramon Morla (R, .304) both had a hit and a walk.

Greenville 3 (HOU - 9), Pulaski 4
RHP Ambioris Hidalgo (3.89) gave up three runs on five hits, a plunked batter, two walks, and four Ks through four innings. RHP Benjamin Cornwell (4.41) followed that with a fine relief outing where he allowed a hit and struck out four. RHP Bobby Shore (2.02) and RHP Joshua Corrales (0.00, W) split the final two innings without much happening, save that Shore struck out one and Corrales won.
3B Dillon Hazlett (HR, .224) was the leadoff batter in the ninth and hit the walkoff as his first pro home run. Neat. RF Alfredo Morales (2 2B, 2 RBI, .250) and SS Bryan Brito (.232) both had two hits and 2B Dan Paolini (2 R, .282) had a single and a walk.

AZL Dodgers 6, Peoria Mariners 5
RHP David Holman (5.68) started and had a strikeout in the three innings he pitched. From there, RHP Min-sih Chen (6.65) gave up three runs on four hits (HR), a walk, and three Ks in four innings, the silver lining of which is that he was throwing strikes. RHP Maxx Catapano (6.29, PO, BS, L) let two plate on two hits, a balk, a walk, and a K in two-thirds of an inning. LHP Scott Ronnenbergh (5.54) let a run score on two hits (HR) and two Ks in the final frame and a third and scored one of Catapano's runs.
3B Yidid Batista (RBI, CS, .318) had three hits batting ninth. His numbers are superficially good, but he's a four-year VSL vet playing the AZL. 2B Felipe Burin (.342) and PH-DH Esteilon Peguero (2B, RBI, .276) both had two hits in the game and LF Phillips Castillo (2B, R, RBI, .321) doubled. Franklin had a single and a run scored and struck out only twice, which is progress.

DSL Rays 6 (0), Yamasa Mariners 3
If the M's end up losing first place in their division due to late season incompetence, I just don't know what I'll do. RHP Rigoberto Garcia (4.01, L) gave up five runs (four earned) on five hits (HR), a walk, a hit batter, and six Ks. RHP Junior Nunez (4.32) then let a run score on a hit and a walk in the next two and a third innings, but LHP Leoncio Munoz (3.95) scored that run with one hit in the inning that he pitch. That's uneven, but the game wrapped up a few outs early due to weather.
SS Ketel Marte (.257), DH Axel Wel (2B, R, .264), and RF Gabriel Guerrero (2B, R, SB. .230) all had two hits and 3B George Soto (2B, RBI, SB, E, .227) doubled.

So it is Draft Signing Deadline Day and even though I mentioned before that I wasn't going to really have time for immediate reactions, I can now sit myself down for several highly anticipated and pithy remarks. Leading up to the deadline, I was confident that Hultzen would get inked, but was uncertain about any of the others, and for some reason that didn't bother me as much as I would anticipate it. When Stanek didn't ink, and neither did Keller or Linehan, I was heartbroken. The year before, I was a little sad that Nelubowich and Griggs didn't sign. This year, I didn't feel that. I didn't know Smith would sign, or that Cohoes would sign (I assumed Miller would), but the way the draft had worked out for us, we brought in so much talent that I didn't really feel like we were missing opportunities. Marlette and Marder, depending on how you feel about him, were both around third-round talents. Hobson, Valenza, White, Saquilon, and Scammell all seems like sixth to ninth round talents, all of them inked. Additional players of unusual physical talents for their level like Guarnaccia, Taylor, Hunter, and Dobbs were brought in. What did I really have to complain about if we had signed the equivalent of three or four third-round picks, half a dozen or more sixth-rounders, and five tenth-rounders? These labels are all loose and not meant for serious consumption, but you get what I'm driving at here. Then they signed Smith (roughly a third rounder) and Cohoes (third to sixth rounder on talent?) in addition to Hultzen and Miller as was expected. They didn't get their uberbat in Cron, but it didn't seem like they tried to all that hard either, for whatever reason. That leaves us still lacking interesting first base prospects, but that's not a huge concern, and the organization has patched up the catching corps, added some strong-armed relievers and potential long-term starters, and bolstered the middle infield depth. Considering the picks that were made and when they were made, this is a legitimate haul for the team and it's hard to be dissatisfied with it.

Iowa 2 (CHC - 13), Tacoma 3
Walkoff! LHP Nate Robertson (6.53, W) went the whole nine, with two runs scoring on three hits (HR), five walks, and four Ks. Considering he was injured out of the gate this year, good for him!
DH Johan Limonta (HR, 2 R, .333) went 3-for-3 with a walk tonight, which is just wonderful. LF Greg Halman (.321) added two singles and 2B Sean Kazmar (3B, .254) tripled. In the ninth, Wilson walked, then Limonta singled and Tui bunted both over. A double play was set up by walking Henriquez, but then Triunfel reached on an error and both runners crossed.

Huntsville 1 (MIL - 7), Jackson 0
Low scoring, huh? RHP Andrew Carraway (3.57, L) gave the Stars their run on four hits, a hit batter, a walk, and five Ks in six innings. LHP Brian Moran (5.15) had two hits, a walk, and three Ks to his line in the next two and LHP Edward Paredes (4.23) had a hit, a walk, and two Ks in the ninth.
LF Vinnie Catricala (2B, .357) had two hits and 1B Rich Poythress (.266) had two walks.

High Desert 2, Inland Empire 7 (ANA + 3)
One would think that coming off a complete game and switching over to one of the friendliest parks in the league for pitchers, RHP Yoervis Medina (6.50, L) would have an easier time of it, but no. He let five (four earned) score in five and a third innings on five hits, a hit batter, four walks, and three Ks. LHP Jose Jimenez (6.44) had a run score against him on two hits, two walks, and a K in the next inning and two-thirds and RHP Keli'i Zablan (10.80) had another run plate on three hits, a wild pitch, and a K in the eighth.
CF Denny Almonte (HR, .271) hit his twentieth home run today and I'll lead off with that because human society has cast off their earlier obsession with sixes and it's now all about the round numbers. LF Daniel Carroll (R, SB, .290) had a single and two walks and 1B Steve Proscia (3B, RBI, .330) had two hits including his first pro triple.

Clinton 9, Peoria 5 (CHC - 10)
Sweep? Of Peoria? This calls for a beer. RHP Carter Capps (5.79) lasted four and two-thirds innings in his pro debut, giving up three runs on five hits, a wild pitch, a walk, and six Ks. Someone in the comments section of the wrap went to the game and saw 80% heaters in the 94 area with 20% changes around 80. Unrefined delivery, but live arm. RHP Jessie Nava (3.76, W) had two runs score on four hits, a walk, and three Ks in the next two and a third and LHP Ryan Kiel (2.89, S) had two Ks in the final two.
2B Carlos Ramirez (2B, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .238) had three hits in the game, and 1B Mickey Wiswall (2B, HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, .243) had those same extra-base hits minus the single. It was the fourth home run for Ramirez and the tenth for Wiswall. CF Mike McGee (2B, R, RBI, CS, .270) DH Stefen Romero (2B, 2 R, .272), and SS Anthony Phillips (R, SB, .181) all had two hits, with Romero adding a walk, and RF Kalian Sams (RBI, CS, .227) had a single and a walk.

Everett 7, Eugene 1 (SD 0)
I like these second half Aquasox. RHP Jordan Pries (3.24, W) got the win with a run scoring on four hits and a couple hit batters against six Ks. LHP Kyle Hunter (0.00) had two hits, a wild pitch, a walk, and three Ks in the next two innings and RHP Cody Weiss (9.00) had a hit and a K in the ninth.
Offense! 1B Jharmidy de Jesus (2B, R, .322), 3B Ramon Morla (R, RBI, .304), SS Jetsy Extrano (3B, R, RBI, .209), and CF Jarrett Burgess (R, 2 SB, .234) all had two hits with everyone but Jetsy adding a walk. 2B Marcus Littlewood (HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .244) continued his recent tear by hitting another home run. LF Nate Melendres (2B, 2 RBI, .294) added a double and PH-DH Ethan Paquette (.248) had a single and a walk.

Peoria Mariners 8, AZL Padres 4
RHP Charles Kaalekahi (5.40, W) got the start and went five innings with it, giving up a run on four hits, a wild pitch, a walk, and three Ks. RHP Marcos Reyna (3.45) got the next three innings and let an unearned run plate on a hit, a walk, and four Ks. RHP Alex Sunderland (4.82) had two unearned runs score on a hit and a wild pitch in the ninth.
There was a lot of offense, but Franklin was 0-for-5 with four Ks and two errors. I'm just throwing that out there to open things. CF James Zamarripa (2B, 3B, R, RBI, SB, PO, .276) and 2B Felipe Burin (2 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI, E. .336) both had three hits and you also had DH Angel Salome (2B, 3 R, RBI, .346) and 3B Yidid Batista (R, SB, CS. E, .301) reaching three times each with two hits and a walk. C Travis Higgs (2 2B, 2 RBI, .298) and 1B Jose Martinez (2B, RBI, E, .265) both had two hits and RF Rigoberto Rangel (2B, .220) doubled.

DSL Brewers 2, Yamasa Mariners 1 (+ 15) (seven innings)
DSL doubleheader. RHP Ivan Julio (2.73, L) got the loss after pitching six and two-thirds innings with two unearned runs scoring against him on a couple of hits, a hit batter, three walks, and eight Ks. RHP Enrique Rosario (1.53) struck out the one batter he faced.
1B Westlonder Marcelino (2B, .250) had two hits in the game and CF Janelfry Zorilla (2B, .332) doubled.

Yamasa Mariners 1, DSL Brewers 2 (+ 16) (seven innings)
Getting swept does affect things because now the Brewers are two back of us. The M's gave the ball to RHP Domingo Brazoban (3.08, L), who pitched the six innings expected of him with two runs plating on six hits (HR), a walk, a hit batter, and three Ks.
The M's were no-hit, but C Miguel Sanchez (.224) walked twice and I guess that means that some DSL pitcher now has an abbreviated no-hitter to his name.

Iowa 1 (CHC - 12), Tacoma 9
I will never tire of RHP Erasmo Ramirez (3.26, W) doing things that seem improbable. This time around he pitched eight and a third innings with a run scoring on a solo shot, six other hits, no walks, and eleven Ks. No one has been this delightful while defying expectations since Michael Pineda. RHP Scott Patterson (3.52) had a hit and a K in the final two-thirds.
The offense had four dingers, one each from 3B Alex Liddi (HR, 3 RBI, E, 3-4, .263), RF Carlos Peguero (HR, 1-2, .320), 1B Johan Limonta (2B, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2-4, .327). C Chris Gimenez (R, .200), rehabbing, had a hit and two walks. I would think that by the time he's eligible to come back, rosters may have expanded. Clever that. DH Mike Wilson (2B, .325) doubled and SS Carlos Triunfel (.182) had two singles.

Huntsville 2 (MIL - 8 ), Jackson 3
RHP Steven Hensley (5.09) had a seven-inning go of it, with a run scoring on nine hits, a wild pitch, and four Ks. I don't quite understand it but whatever. RHP Stephen Penney (4.76, W) had a hit, a walk, and a K in the next inning of work and RHP Stephen Pryor (1.69, S) had similar totals minus the K.
1B Rich Poythress (R, E, .267) had a hit and two walks. Any improvement in the fairer two outcomes is appreciated. 3B Francisco Martinez (2B, .224), PH Luis Antonio Jimenez (2B, 2 RBI, .317), and CF Brandon Haveman (3B, R, .275) all had extra-base hits and 2B Scott Savastano (RBI, .293) had a hit and a walk. Jimenez' role was pretty important.

Stockton 13 (OAK + 9), High Desert 3
This was even uglier than last night. RHP Jandy Sena (6.92, L) let nine runs score on eight hits (HR) ,four walks, and two Ks in two and two-thirds innings. LHP Jonathan Hesketh (10.35) scored two of those and four of his own on six hits (HR) and a walk against a K. LHP Jason Markovitz (5.54) had a hit and a walk against two Ks in the next three innings and RHP Jason Buursma (2.79) had a hit and a K in the final two.
RF James McOwen (2 2B, R, .267) and 3B Steve Proscia (RBI, .324) both had two hits and 1B Rudy van Heydoorn (.222) had a single and a walk.

Clinton 8, Peoria 2 (CHC - 9)
Yaaay. LHP Reonis Elias (2.89, W) had another solid outing, going six and two-thirds innings with two runs scoring on five hits, a hit batter, a walk, and seven Ks. RHP Jonathan Arias (2.72, S) had a walk and three Ks in the last two and a third innings.
CF Mike McGee (R, .266), RF Julio Morban (R, RBI, .261), 1B Tim Morris (HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, .257), and C Carlton Tanabe (2 2B, .209) all had two hits in the game. Fifth dinger for Morris, who I'll remind everyone is a first baseman. With speed. 2B Stefen Romero (2B, R, RBI, .269) and DH Robbie Anston (SB, .260) both had a hit and a walk.

Tri-City 3 (COL + 4), Everett 5
LHP Bennett Whitmore (4.74, W) pitched six innings in the start with three runs scoring on four hits (HR), a walk, and four Ks in that span. RHP Nolan Diaz (7.23) had a hit, a walk, and two Ks in the next two and RHP Tim Griffin (2.70, S) had a couple of Ks in the ninth.
SS Marcus Littlewood (HR, .246) had three hits from the leadoff spot, CF Nathan Melendres (R, .298) and RF Mario Yepez (R, .324) both had two following him, LF Jabari Blash (HR, 3 RBI, .286) hit his ninth home run at the level and 1B Ethan Paquette (2B, R, .245) doubled.

Bluefield 7 (TOR + 9), Pulaski 2
Some kind of revenge. RHP Angel Raga (3.26) had six innings in the start with two runs scoring on four hits (HR) and four Ks. RHP Brett Shankin (6.95, L) then let three runs score on a hit and two walks in a third of an inning with RHP Reynaldo Sabala (4.02) scoring one of those and two of his own on five hits, two walks, and two Ks in the next two and two-thirds.
1B Patrick Brady (2 2B, R, .359) had two doubles, CF Jamal Austin (2B, .368) had one, and RF Alfredo Morales (.239) had a single and a walk.

AZL Brewers 5, Peoria Mariners 6 (ten innings)
This is a wrap of a game from a few weeks ago, so some of these numbers aren't going to line up as we get to game two and you'll just have to deal. RHP Jochi Ogando (5.32) pitched the first four innings and let four runs (two earned) score on four hits, a hit batter, five walks, and two Ks. RHP Marcos Reyna (4.41) had an unearned run score against him on two hits, a walk, and four Ks in the next three and then RHP Alex Sunderland (3.27) had a hit, a walk, and two Ks to close regulation. In extras, RHP Yunior de Jesus (3.52, W) had a hit and a K and the win. Win!
In the tenth, the run was manufactured, as LF Phillips Castillo (3 R, 2-3, .326) was plunked with one out, advanced on a wild pitch, and scored on a single by RF Rigoberto Rangel (RBI, CS, 2-3, BB, .289). CF James Zamarripa (2 2B, R, .333) had three hits from the leadoff spot, 3B-SS-1B Jose Martinez (2 RBI, .256) had two singles, and SS Esteilon Peguero (2B, RBI, E, .269) and 2B Felipe Burin (2B, CS, .234) both doubled.

AZL Brewers 5, Peoria Mariners 0
This was the real game, with a real loss, with much to notice with the difference between then and now. RHP Jochi Ogando (5.84, L) also started this one and walked four and threw a wild pitch while recording two outs. One scored. RHP Lars Huijer (6.43, 2 E) pitched the next four innings with three runs scoring against him on six hits, a walk, and a K. RHP Brandon Plotz (6.10) then took over for two and a third innings and had a run score on two hits, a wild pitch, and three Ks. RHP Richard White (3.60) had easily the best outing of the day as he had a hit and two Ks in the final two innings.
CF James Zamarripa (.260) had a single and a walk and 2B Felipe Burin (.324) had two singles.

Written by Jay Yencich | 14 August 2011

Tyler Marlette has signed, which is a boon to our catching depth. Unless you count Cron, who probably won't ink, we've signed all of our catchers. Let's sign some more guys!

Iowa 3 (CHC - 11), Tacoma 8
LHP Chris Seddon (6.42, PO, W) ended up starting and let three runs plate on four hits (2 HR!), a couple of walks, and six Ks. Fringe-quality. RHP Shawn Kelley (3.52) had a hit and two Ks in the next inning and LHP Cesar Jimenez (3.78) struck out four in the last two.
CF Michael Saunders (2B, 2 R, .291) was back in the lineup and didn't seem to miss a beat as he had a double and three walks. LF Greg Halman (2B, R, 2 SB, .329) added three hits, DH Carlos Peguero (2 2B, 2 RBI, .318) and RF Mike Wilson (2B, HR, 2 R, .327) both had two, and 1B Johan Limonta (2B, 3 RBI, .325) had a double.

Huntsville 6 (MIL - 7), Jackson 3
Same Huntsville total, different Jackson total. LHP Jimmy Gillheeney (7.80, E, L) gave the Stars all their offense on eight hits (3 HR!) and a walk while striking out two. I do mean "all", because LHP Bobby LaFromboise (3.31) was perfect in the last three and struck out three.
RF Johermyn Chavez (HR, .220) had his thirteenth home run as one of two hits and 2B Scott Savastano (HR, 2 RBI, .292) hit out his seventh. LF Vinnie Catricala (2B, .362) doubled and CF Brandon Haveman (R, CS, .274) had a hit and a walk.

Stockton 9 (OAK + 8), High Desert 2
RHP Chris Sorce (4.79, L) got knocked around, giving up six runs in five innings on ten hits (3 HR!!), a walk, and five Ks. RHP Austin Hudson (5.97) then let another run plate on three hits and four Ks over the next two. So I guess that starting thing of his was just a blip. RHP Keli'i Zablan (11.00, E) let two runs (one earned) score on a hit and a walk against one K in the eighth and RHP Jason Buursma (3.52) had a walk in the ninth.
RF James McOwen (HR, .250) and DH Joe Dunigan (HR, .250) both had home runs, which I can't really get excited about considering both were in double-A not too long ago and the wind was blowing out 15 mph to center. 1B Steve Proscia (CS, .317) had two singles. I'm okay with that but not the caught stealing.

Clinton 3, Peoria 1 (CHC - 8) (ten innings)
Poor LHP Anthony Fernandez (2.84, W). He keeps trying for that CG and doesn't get it. He pitched nine innings this time out through and let a run score on five hits and nine Ks. RHP Tyler Burgoon (2.21, S), however, saved it with two hits, a wild pitch, and two Ks in the tenth.
In the tenth, after Tanabe reached on error, 2B Carlos Ramirez (HR, 2 RBI, 1-4, .233) cracked one to center. There was other stuff that followed, but it wasn't so momentous, although it did give LF Robbie Anston (3 2B, RBI, SB, .258) his third double of the night.

Tri-City 4 (COL + 5), Everett 6
RHP Vicente Campos (2.45, W) gave the Sox an eight-inning effort with two unearned runs scoring on two hits (HR) against seven Ks. Daaaaaang. RHP David Colvin (18.00), just promoted, was introduced to the league with two runs on two hits (HR) and a K. Similar, but different.
3B Ramon Morla (HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .305) and LF Jetsy Extrano (HR, .184) both had dingers. DINGERS! C Larry Gonzalez (2B, .253) added two hits.

Bluefield 5 (TOR + 8), Pulaski 15
Drubbing! RHP Luke Taylor (8.41, E, W) had two good starts in a row, going five innings this time out with two runs scoring on two hits (HR), a hit batter, two walks, and six Ks. That means he's probably going to be my Pitcher of the Week. RHP Seon Gi Kim (7.27) will definitely not because he had a load of trouble in an inning+, with three runs scoring on a hit, six walks, and two Ks. RHP Bo Reeder (4.41) had two hits and a walk in the next two innings and RHP Joshua Corrales (0.00) had a hit and a K in the ninth.
OFFENSE! It was mostly tied up in hitting. 3B Michael Acevedo (2B, 3 R, .294) and RF Efrain Nunez (2B, 3B, HR, 2 R, 6 RBI, .289) both had three hits in the game, with Acevedo drawing a walk. CF Jamal Austin (2R ,.371), LF Guillermo Pimentel (2B, R, RBI, .268), 2B Dan Paolini (2B, 3B, 2 R, 2 RBI, .288), DH Alfredo Morales (HR, 3 RBI, .235), 1B Patrick Brady (2B, 3 R, RBI, .343), and SS Bryan Brito (2B, R, RBI, .228) all had two hits, with Brady adding a walk. That's everyone but the catcher with two or more hits, and even he singled.

Peoria Mariners 1, AZL Rangers 6
End line score aside, RHP Gabe Saquilon (5.60, L) did pretty well with his start, giving up a lone run on four hits, a walk, and four Ks. LHP Nick Valenza (8.62), not so much, as he let five (three earned) score on four hits, three walks, and two Ks in the next two. RHP Maxx Catapano (5.70) had a K in the final two innings.
C Keanu Carmichael (3B, .250) tripled, RF Rigoberto Rangel (2B, R, .222) doubled, and 2B Roberto Velasquez (.247) had a single and a walk.

DSL Brewers 1 (+ 14), Yamasa Mariners 3
RHP Jose Torres (2.11, W) had a hit, a hit batter, a wild pitch, five walks, and three Ks in five innings. That would be effectively wild. RHP Ronald Dominguez (1.61, S) gave the Brew Crew their one run on two hits, a walk, and three Ks over the final four.
SS Noe Berro (2B, HR, .213) had two hits and a walk and 1B Axel Wel (2B, .267) joined him in reaching three times with three hits. CF Janelfry Zorilla (R, RBI, .335) had a couple of singles. That was almost the entire offense.

Some guy is saying that Cron won’t sign, which is sad, if true.

Iowa 9 (CHC - 10), Tacoma 3
LHP Luke French (6.12, L) gave up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits (2 HR!), three walks, and two Ks in two and a third innings. That’s bad. RHP Chaz Roe (6.47) then had an especially weird outing in that he struck out nine in four and two-thirds innings and only let an unearned run score on four hits and a walk. LHP Fabio Castro (3.75) let a run score on three hits and two Ks in the next inning and RHP Steve Delabar (0.00) had a hit batter, a wild pitch, and two Ks in the ninth.
CF Greg Halman (R, .303), 3B Alex Liddi (HR, 3 RBI, .263), and 1B Johan Limonta (2B, .327) all had two hits in the game. Twenty-six home runs for Liddi!

Huntsville 6 (MIL - 8), Jackson 11
LHP James Paxton (1.85, W) let very few of the runs to score, only one, with that scoring on four hits and a balk with ten Ks in seven innings. Huntsville is also a pretty b ad offensive eam. RHP Daniel Cooper (8.44) opened the eighth with four hits, two wild pitches, and a walk, and all five baserunners came around, RHP Mosies Hernandez (6.18) scoring one of them on three hits and a K.
Lots of offense, though. SS Gabriel Noriega (2B, 2 R, .375) had three hits from the ninth spot in the order and 2B Scott Savastano (2B, 2 R, RBI, .293), LF Vinnie Catricala (2 2B, 4 R, 2 RBI, SB, .363), DH Luis Antonio Jimenez (2 R, RBI, SB, .323), 1B Rich Poythress (2 RBI, .265), 3B Francisco Martinez (3B, HR, 4 RBI, E, .238), and CF Johermyn Chavez (RBI, A, .217) all had two hits with Savastano, Catricala, Jimenez, and Chavez adding walks. That was Martinez’ first home run in the org! It was also his first triple.

Stockton 0 (OAK + 7), High Desert 4
Home shutout? LHP Nate Reed (3.57, W) pitched seven innings without walking anyone or allowing a run. He had six hits, a hit batter, and eight Ks. Pitcher of the week. LHP Jose Jimenez (6.47) had two hits, a walk, and a K in two innings.
SS Leury Bonilla (3B, R, RBI, .300), 3B Steve Proscia (2B, R, .310), and 1B Mario Martinez (2B, .284) all had extra-base hits.

Cedar Rapids 2 (ANA - 7), Clinton 1
So that was another one-run loss. It wasn’t the fault of RHP Steve Kohlscheen (4.94, PO), who pitched seven innings and let a run score on six hits, a walk, and seven Ks. RHP Matt Bischoff (3.62, L) had a run score against him, the decisive run, on a hit, a wild pitch, and a hit batter while striking out four in two innings, which just seems like bad luck.
I suppose that part of the problem is eight hits without an extra-base hit. 1B Mickey Wiswall (.241), C John Hicks (R, .250), and 3B Matt Browning (CS, .235) all had two hits. CF Julio Morban (.258) had a single and a walk.

Tri-City 8 (COL + 6), Everett 5
Oh no? LHP Jordan Shipers (4.71, PO, L) gave up four runs on seven hits, a wild pitch, a hit batter, and three Ks. At least there were no walks. RHP Joe DiRocco (4.33) pitched the next two and a third innings with four runs scoring on five hits (HR), a wild pitch, a walk, and two Ks. RHP Tim Griffin (2.81) wrapped up that inning, scoring one of those runs against DiRocco. RHP Bryan Leigh (5.30) struck out two in the ninth.
2B Marcus Littlewood (HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, E, .234), DH James Wood (2B, .270), and C Mike Dowd (R, .241) all had two hits in the game with Littlewood adding a walk. 1B Jharmidy de Jesus (R, 2 RBI, .318) had a hit and a walk and LF Nathan Melendres (2B, R, .296) and PH-DH Jabari Blash (2B, .287) both doubled.

Bluefield 10 (TOR + 9), Pulaski 2
RHP Mayckol Guaipe (4.69, L) gave up three runs up on five hits (HR), a walk, a hit batter, and three Ks in five innings of work. The last four frames were split between LHP Jeremy Dobbs (6.62), who let four (three earned) score on four hits, three walks, and a K, and RHP Bobby Shore (2.19, E), who let three score (one earned) on two hits and three Ks. There were five errors in the game.
2B Dan Paolini (3B, HR, 2 E, .285) had three hits, coming a double shy of the cycle and made two of the errors. C Hassiel Jimenez (HR, E, .167) had his first dinger of the year, SS Michael Acevedo (2B, .283) doubled, and DH Efrain Nunez (.275) had two singles.

DSL Athletics 6 (- 18), Yamasa Mariners 3
LHP Leoncio Munoz (4.10) pitched four+ innings and let three runs (one earned) plate on three hits, a wild pitch, five walks, and three Ks. Wild, and not necessarily effectively so. RHP Gregorio Aquino (5.82, L) took the loss when he let two runs score on two hits, four walks, and two Ks in three+ frames of work. After that, RHP Oliver Garcia (4.29) gave up a solo shot, walked two, and struck out three in the final two innings. Both relievers let an inherited runner score.
DH Axel Wel (2B, HR, 2 RBI, .248), LF Estarlyn Morales (2B, .235), and RF Gabriel Guerrero (R, .235) all had two hits in the game.

Huntsville 5 (MIL - 7), Jackson 6 (fourteen innings)
RHP Kenn Kasparek (4.79) got five innings deep with the start and had four runs plate on seven hits, a couple of hit batters, a couple of walks, and four Ks. LHP Bobby LaFromboise (3.52) had an uneventful sixth, and then RHP Stephen Penney (4.89) had a hit, a hit batter, and two Ks in the next two innings. Penney gave way to RHP Stephen Pryor (1.80, BS), who is usually as safe a bet as any in the ninth, but a run ended up scoring on him after a hit and a walk. LHP Edward Paredes (4.34) took on the next three and had a hit, a walk, and a K in the span and then LHP Brian Moran (5.36, W) walked one and struck out four in the final two.
This was another simple walk-off: with one out, 3B Vinnie Catricala (3 2B, 2 R, RBI, E, 3-6, BB, .359) doubled, and PR-DH Jake Shaffer (RBI, CS, 2-2, BB, .286) singled him home. So ended the game. Otherwise, you had a home run and a walk from 1B Rich Poythress (HR, 2 R, .264), which was important for it being his tenth dinger. SS Gabriel Noriega (2B, 2 RBI, .273) also had two hits including a double, and I'll give credit to DH Luis Antonio Jimenez (.312) for having two walks in four plate appearances. Extra-innings games are harder to recap for offense because it's inherently less impressive when a guy takes seven at-bats to get two singles.

Stockton 3 (OAK + 8), High Desert 11
RHP Taylor Stanton (5.58, W) had another bizarrely successful home outing, giving up a run on four hits, a hit batter, and a walk against seven Ks in seven innings pitched. RHP Willy Kesler (4.03) fared worse though, no Ks, and two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk.
The offense hit five dingers. This is Adelanto. What do you want me to say? DH Joe Dunigan (2 HR, .258) had two of those as his only two hits. Also hitting balls out of the ballpark were LF Daniel Carroll (HR, 3 R, 2 RBI, SB, 3-4, BB, .292), SS Leury Bonilla (HR, 3 RBI, E, 2-4, .304), and 1B Steve Proscia (HR, 1-4, .313). Four of Proscia's five dingers have come at home. For the rest, C Trevor Coleman (2B, 2 R, RBI, .270) had two hits and RF James McOwen (2B< 2 RBI, .273) and CF Denny Almonte (2B, R, SB, E, .275) both doubled.

Cedar Rapids 6 (ANA - 8), Clinton 5
We scored four unanswered runs from the seventh through the eighth? LHP Tony Butler (3.43, L) had a mixed outing in that he struck out eight and only walked one through six innings, but he also let three runs score on nine hits (HR) and a wild pitch. RHP Ben Versnik (27.00) had a hit and a walk in the next third, both scoring as RHP John Taylor (5.06) came in and let a run score on three hits (HR) and a walk against one K in an inning and two-thirds. RHP Jonathan Arias (2.84) got back on the horse and had a K in the ninth inning.
CF Mike McGee (R, RBI, CS, .270) had two hits and LF Julio Morban (3B, R, 2 RBI, .257) and SS Anthony Phillips (2B, R, .181) both had extra-base hits.

Tri-City 3 (COL + 5), Everett 4
We won a game against our truly hated rivals from the eastern part of the league and state. RHP Steve Landazuri (4.58, PO) had three runs score on six hits, a wild pitch, three walks, and four Ks in five innings of work and then LHP Kyle Hunter (0.00, W) piggybacked for the rest, with two hits, a wild pitch, and seven Ks. That's a POTW argument right there, but four innings is borderline for just one appearance.
RF Mario Yepez (R, .331) and C Mike Dowd (2B HR, 2 R, PB, .233) both had three hits in the game. That was cool.

Pulaski 1, Kingsport 4 (NYM + 2)
RHP Dylan Unsworth (5.40, L) had four runs allowed through five innings after six hits and five Ks. He still doesn't walk anyone. RHP Brett Shankin (5.82) had a hit and three Ks in the final three innings.
3B Patrick Brady (RBI, .313) had a hit and two walks from the leadoff spot. Five other M's reached, but not more than once, and not for more than one base.

Peoria Mariners 1, AZL Giants 9
RHP Trevor Miller (4.12, L) gave up seven runs on ten hits (HR), a wild pitch, a hit batter, two walks, and six Ks, which is a shame in that I was one strong outing away from adding him to the weekly stuff. RHP Alex Sunderland (5.09) let one score on two hits (HR), a walk, and three Ks in the next two and two-thirds, scoring one of Miller's runs, and RHP Brandon Plotz (6.75) let a run score on two hits and a K in the eighth.
2B Felipe Burin (CS, .324) had a hit and two walks. He does stuff like that! RF Reggie Lawson (2B, R, .230) doubled.

Yamasa Mariners 6, DSL Cardinals 1 (- 18) (seven innings)
We're probably making up storm games now. RHP Rigoberto Garcia (3.20) had an unearned run score against him on two hits and two Ks in an inning of work. That was all the run scoring they got. RHP Noel de la Cruz (3.24, W) took over for the remaining six innings and allowed three hits, a hit batter, and a walk with three Ks.
SS Ketle Marte (2 R, SB, .266) reached three times with two hits and a walk. DH Axel Wel (R, RBI, .252), RF Wilton Martinez (R, RBI, .168), and LF Estarlyn Morales (3B, 2 RBI, .230) all reached twice, Wel and Morales with a hit and a walk and Martinez with two walks.

DSL Cardinals 11 (- 17), Yamasa Mariners 2 (seven innings)
Oh no. RHP Ramire Cleto (6.33, E, L) gave the Cards most of their offense, seven runs (six earned) on eight hits (HR), a hit batter, a walk, and two Ks. RHP Enrique Rosario (1.55) had two runs (one earned) score against him on three hits, a wild pitch, a hit batter, two walks, and three Ks in three and a third innings, and also scored one of Cleto's runs. RHP Yeuri Gonzalez (3.26) was called upon to strike ou the final batter of the inning and then RHP Junior Nunez (4.35) pitched the seven with two runs (one earned) scoring on three hits and a K.
RF Gabriel Guerrero (R, .224) had a hit and two walks, which is neat. C Ivan Brea (R, .222) had two hits and SS Noe Berro (3 E, .194) had a single and a walk and did some stupid stuff on the field.

Did you know that yesterday Alex Liddi broke the single season record for runs scored by a Tacoma Rainier? Well, he did. There's not much of a chance for him to hit the all time PCL mark though.

Tacoma 3, Round Rock 2 (TEX + 19) (fourteen innings)
LHP Anthony Vasquez (3.11) pitched seven innings and gave up a run on seven hits (HR), a walk, and two Ks despite it being 100+ at game time. LHP Cesar Jimenez (3.90) walked one in the eighth, but then RHP Scott Patterson (3.58, BS) blew it in the ninth with a run scoring on two hits and two Ks. For extras, it was all RHP Jarrett Grube (6.55, W), as he had a hit, a walk, and four Ks in the final five.
The fourteenth inning saw a home run by leadoff man? LF Johan Limonta (HR, 2-7, .325) and that just about did it. CF (yes, CF) Mike Wilson (2B, RBI, .329) had three hits and two walks in the game. For the lesser contributors, LF Matt Tuiasosopo (.232) and DH Wily Mo Pena (2B, R, .361) both had two hits but Tui walked.

Cedar Rapids 0 (ANA - 9), Clinton 2
Now we go against the Angels affiliate! I doubt they schedule things this way. Hey look, former first-round pick Randal Grichuk is hitting .198/.244/.309 in twenty-one games. I'm sure there's some context for that. RHP Taijuan Walker (2.89, PO, W) only pitched five innings with four hits, a walk, and three Ks. I'm guessing he's on a pitch count these days. LHP Ryan Kiel (3.24) struck out three through the next three innings and RHP Tyler Burgoon (2.25, S), who could probably be in Jackson or something, struck out one in the ninth.
SS Anthony Phillips (HR, .179) hit a home run. He has five this season, which I find remarkable even though he had seven in Everett in 2009. RF-LF Julio Morban (R, SB, .258) had two hits and a walk and CF Mike McGee (.264) and 1B Mickey Wiswall (RBI, .241) both had a hit and a walk.

Tri-City 18 (COL + 6), Everett 7
It hurts us. LHP Cameron Hobson (2.82, L) took the L for one of the less damaging pitching performances of the night as he went four innings and let two runs score on three hits (HR), a walk, and six Ks. The next three relievers were pretty much disastrous. RHP Bryan Leigh (5.60) let six runs (four earned) score in two-thirds of an inning on three hits (2 HR!), two wild pitches, two walks, and a K, RHP Nolan Diaz (7.89) got four outs and had four runs score on four hits (HR), two walks, a wild pitch, and two Ks, and RHP Jeroen de Haas (9.64) had six runs plate on seven hits, two walks, a wild pitch, and a strikeout in the next inning and two-thirds. Diaz also scored two of Leigh's runs. RHP Tim Griffin (2.88) did no such thing and had two hits and three Ks in the final inning and a third.
I suppose I pull myself out of the stupor and talk offense now. 1B Jharmidy de Jesus (HR, .320), 3B Ramon Morla (2B, .316), DH James Wood (HR, 2 R, .268), and SS Danny Lopez (R, RBI, .263) all had two hits and Wood added a walk. CF Jarrett Burgess (2B, 2 RBI, .230), LF Jabari Blash (HR, 2 RBI, .283), and C Larry Gonzalez (2B, R, PB, .237) all had extra-base hits. This was the losing effort.

Pulaski 7, Kingsport 4 (NYM + 1)
RHP Ambioris Hidalgo (3.52) pitched four innings and let two runs (one earned) score on three hits, a wild pitch, a walk, and a K. Progress? RHP Benjamin Cornwell (5.40) had two runs plate against him on two hits, a walk, a wild pitch, a hit batter, and two Ks in the next inning and two-thirds and then RHP Joshua Corrales (0.00, W) handed out two free passes and struck out five in the next two and a third innings and RHP Reynaldo Sabala (3.77) had a hit and two Ks in the final innings.
DH Jordy Lara (2B, HR, 3 R, 2 RBI, .265) had three hits and a walk in the game, and that was his fifth dinger of the year. His average is only .265, but his iso is .150+. RF Alfredo Morales (2 R, .236), LF Efrain Nunez (.267), and C Jose Hernandez (R, RBI, E, .193) all had two hits with Morales adding a walk.

AZL Padres 8, Peoria Mariners 3
RHP Min-sih Chen (6.64, E, L) pitched four and two-thirds innings with five runs scoring on seven hits (HR), a hit batter, a walk, and six Ks. The positive thing to take away from this is that Chen now as a K/BB over one. LHP Scott Ronnenbegh (5.47) had two and a third innings pitched after that with two runs scoring on three hits, three wild pitches, two walks, and three Ks. RHP David Holman (6.45, PO) gave up an unearned run on two hits, a pair of wild pitches, a walk, and two Ks in the final two.
DH Felipe Burin (R, .320) had two singles, C Travis Higgs (2B, R, 2 RBI, .294) doubled, and 2B Yidid Batista (RBI, .289) had a single and a walk. Guarnaccia got a PH debut and struck out.

Yamasa Mariners 11, DSL Brewers 5 (+ 7)
RHP Domingo Brazoban (3.09, W) got his ninth win by going five innings and letting four runs (three earned) score on five hits (HR), three walks, and five Ks. WILL HE GET TEN WINS? WILL WE HEAR HIM REFERED TO AS A TEN-GAME WINNER FROM THEN ONWARD IN HIS TRIP UP THE MINOR LEAGUE LADDER? I just don't know. RHP Oliver Garcia (2.89) had a hit, a wild pitch, a hit batter, and a walk against two Ks in the next three innings and then RHP George Drullard (4.35) had an unearned run score against him on a hit and a walk in the ninth.
CF Janelfry Zorilla (2B, HR, 3 R, 2 RBI, CS, .333) had three hits and a walk in the game and that was his eleventh dinger. I would be surprised if he wasn't stateside next year. LF Randy Perez (2 R, RBI, E, .284), DH Axel Wel (2B, R, 3 RBI, .250), and 3B George Soto (HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, .248) all had two hits with Perez drawing a walk.
