Minor League Round-up: 5/11/07

Iowa 4 - Fresno 3

  • Pitching Notes: Carlos Marmol picked up win #4 of the season, throwing 6.2 innings, allowing all 3 Fresno runs. Marmol surrendered 4 hits, 1 walk while striking out 7. Pignatiello, Webb and Rapada split the final 2.1 innings of hitless baseball. Rapada recorded 1 out to get the save.
  • Hitting Notes: Eric Patterson led off for Iowa and went 2-4 with a HR. C Koyie Hill went 2-3 with a 2B and a run scored. SS Michael Fontenot went 1-4 with his one hit being his 6th HR of the season. Buck Coats went 3-3 with 2 RBIs. Felix went 1-4 with a 2B.
  • Tennessee 3 - Montomery 0
  • Pitching Notes: Nothing is more frustrating to see a Cubs minor league team shut down their opponent, expecting to see one of the big prospects having a spectacular outing, only to see some career minor leaguer or no-namer have a career game. That didn't happen today as Sean Gallagher threw seven solid innings, allowing 4 hits and 4 walks, while striking out 8. Billy Petrick and Geoffrey Jones kept the shut-out intact as each allowed one hit over an inning of work. Jones notched his 4th save of the season.
  • Hitting Notes: CF Sam Fuld went 2-4 with a walk and a run scored in the leadoff spot. DH Chris Robinson also went 2-4 with a run scored. Jake Fox started in LF, went 1-4 with a double and an RBI.
  • Lakeland 6 - Daytona 5 (17 innings)
  • Pitching Notes: Starter Jesse Estrada would give up all 5 Lakeland runs (4 earned) in regulation, throwing 4.1 innings. They would not score again until the 17th inning. Obviously there was tremendous relief by Darin Downs (2 IP, 1 BB, 3 Ks), Michael Phelps (1.2 IP, 3 hits, 1 BB, 2 Ks), Jerry Blevins (2 IP, 3 Ks), Grant Johnson (3 IP, 3 hits, 2 BB, 4 Ks), and Matt Avery (3 IP, 2 hits, 1 BB, 2 Ks). Lakeland got the winning run off of 1B/LF Alberto Garcia who allowed 1 run on 2 hits.
  • Hitting Notes: Since Garcia clearly took one for the team, we'll mention that he went 2-8 with an RBI. Tyler Colvin went 4-7 with a double, a walk, a run scored and 2 RBIs. Nate Spears went 4-7 with an RBI. 2 hits each for Jesus Valdez, Robinson Chirinos, and Kyle Reynolds. Reynolds and Chirinos each had a triple. Daytona stranded 17 runners in this extra inning affair which was either an epic battle or boring as hell.
  • Peoria 10 - Dayton 9
  • Pitching Notes: No, its not April Fools Day. Peoria really did score 10 runs. Starter Jose Pina didn't fare all that well allowing 5 runs (4 ER) in 5 innings. He gave up 5 hits and a walk while striking out 3. Reliever Oscar Bernard threw 1.1 hitless innings, unfortunately 2 walks and some fielding problems resulted in 3 runs (2 earned). Jayson Ruhlman picked up the win, tossing 1.2 innings, giving up 1 unearned run on 2 hits, striking out 2. A certain Peoria closer got his 8th save and tossed yet another scoreless inning, allowing 1 hit while striking out two. I can see the promotion say two or three years from now, "come early to Wrigley and play croquet with Roquet"
  • Hitting Notes: Peoria came back big time in this one, scoring 3 in the 8th and 4 in the 9th. The key hit was a 3 run HR in the 9th off the bat of Dylan Johnston who went 2-4 with with a walk and 2 runs scored. He needed that night at the plate as you'll see in the "fielding notes" section. Matt Camp went 3-5 with 2 runs scored and an RBI as he tries to get a little distance from the Mendoza line (he's currently hittin .208). LF Alfred Joseph went 1-3 with a walk, a double and 2 runs scored. Yusuf Carter went 2-5 with a double and a 3 run HR. DH Blake Lalli went 2-4 with a double. Josh Lansford and Russell Canzler each had a hit and an RBI.
  • Fielding Notes: Oy vey! 6 errors for Peoria including 4 by Dylan Johnston. 3 were throwing errors and one was a missed catch. This brings his total up to 11 for the season. Lansford committed a fielding error and Canzler committed a throwing error.
