7/4 Minor League Wrap-Up

The Man and injuries can't keep me down forever!

As for the Mariners org....

Uh... on to the wrap-up!

VENEZUELA~!  VSL Mariners 8, VSL Cardinals 3

VSL Cards bullpen got crushed.

Rk-AZL:  Mariners 2, Rangers 1, 10 innings

AZLMs:  5-6... AZL Rangers:  7-4
(League:  267/349/390... 4.77 ERA)

Kenta Suda:  5 IP, 6 H, 4 K

Kyle Brown:  1 IP, 1 H
Cesar Fuentes:  2-4, RBI, K
Jharmidy De Jesus:  2-4, RBI
Terry Serrano:  2-4, K

Down 1-0 in the bottom 9th, Jarrett Burgess led off with a single, Cesar Fuentes bunted him to 2nd for one out, and Jharmidy De Jesus smoked a grounder into left to cash him in and TIE THE BALLGAME.

Since the formula worked so well in the 9th, they repeated it in the bottom 10th.  Donnie Jobe led off with a single, Jarrett Burgess bunted him over to 2nd for one out, and Cesar Fuentes smoked a grounder into right to cash in Jobe for the WALKOFF VICTORY.

Rk+:  Pulaski 14, Princeton 3

PMs:  8-8... PRI:  8-9
(League:  264/339/397... 4.50 ERA)

Jonathan Arias:  2-5, 2 run HR, 2 K

You know why this was so easy?  No Burt Reynolds in the P-Rays lineup!

Fun fact:  Stroker Ace's birthplace?

San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic. Those wacky Dominicans.  Adrian Beltre is the tip of the iceberg.

A-:  Everett 7, Yakima 1
EVE:  7-11... YAK:  8-10
(League:  250/339/354... 3.95 ERA)

Ryan Royster:  1-4, double, R (157/279/196)

Aside from Yakima asses getting kicked, our 2nd round pick from this draft FINALLY signing, making his pro debut and looking good, and reliever Aaron Brown getting the start and looking surprisingly effective... not much to report here.

A:  Peoria 9, Wisconsin 7
WIS:  3-13... PEO:  11-5
(League:  250/321/369... 3.61 ERA)

Edward Paredes:  1 IP, 6 H, (4 R) 3 ER (HR), walk, hit batter (16 GS +1, 4.91 ERA, 73.1 IP, 9 HR, 33/50 BB/K)
Ryan Moorer:  3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER (HR), K (26 app, 4.22 ERA, 32 IP, 2 HR, 12/21 BB/K)
Natividad Dilone:  1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER (HR), 3 K
Keith Meyer:  2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 walks, K, hit batter (25 app, 3.63 ERA, 34.2 IP, 4 HR, 19/36 BB/K)
Jose Escalona:  2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER (HR), walk, 2 K (18 app, 5.24 ERA, 22.1 IP, 4 HR, 14/27 BB/K)
Edilio Colina:  3-5, 2 run HR, 2 R (285/355/371)
Denny Almonte:  2-4, 2 doubles, 2 R, walk, K (271/324/465)
Alex Liddi:  1-4, R, RBI, walk (246/312/348)
Joe Dunigan:  2-5, double, solo HR, 3 RBI, K (196/260/340)

Edward Paredes got ripped up and chased before he could record an out in the 2nd inning.  The T-Rats got 3 of those runs back in the 3rd, but Peoria piled on with runs in the 4th and 5th.  Yet, the T-Rats piled on 3 more in the 5th with home runs from Edilio Colina and Joe Dunigan that tied the ballgame in the 5th.  But the Chiefs scored 2 runs in the 6th on Jovan Rosa's 26th double, and Luis Batista's 8th HR of the season in the 9th made it 9-6 Peoria.  The T-Rats turned a leadoff double from Denny Almonte into a cheap run, but couldn't get anything else across.

A+:  Inland Empire 7, High Desert 0

Mavs:  8-7... Empire:  9-6
(League:  270/340/404... 4.51 ERA)

Ricky Orta:  3.1 IP, 4 H, (4 R) 3 ER (HR), 3 walks, 4 K (9 GS +3, 4.31 ERA, 39.2 IP, 5 HR, 14/35 BB/K)
Julio Santiago:  3.2 IP, 2 H, K (26 app, 4.58 ERA, 39.1 IP, 1 HR, 25/32 BB/K)
Austin Bibens-Dirkx:  1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 walks, K, wild pitch, hit batter (29 app, 8.36 ERA, 37.2 IP, 9 HR, 14/27 BB/K)
Chris Minaker:  1-3, double (294/328/453)
rest of Mavs lineup:  5-29, 9 K

Since the run column's blank, I'm going to leave any analysis of this game blank.  It's only appropriate.

AA:  Montgomery 11, West Tenn 3
WTN:  6-11... MON:  6-11
(League:  262/341/395... 4.18 ERA)

Doug FISTER:  5 IP, 11 H, (10 R) 9 ER, 5 K, 2 hit batters (18 GS, 5.06 ERA, 99.2 IP, 9 HR, 35/73 BB/K)
Nelson Payano:  2 IP, 1 H, 4 walks, 2 K, wild pitch (31 app, 3.68 ERA, 51.1 IP, 1 HR, 30/48 BB/K)
Nick Hill:  1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER
Marwin Vega:  1 IP, 2 H, K, hit batter (29 app, 5.24 ERA, 44.2 IP, 3 HR, 32/28 BB/K)
Erick Monzon:  1-2, 2 RBI
Greg Halman:  3-5, 2 doubles, triple, R, K (310/365/621)
Mike Wilson:  1-5, double, RBI (271/365/562)
Adam Moore:  1-3, double (305/379/477)
Jon Nelson:  2-4, K (296/342/458)
Matt Mangini:  2-4, R (237/267/268)

The Biscuits blew up THE FIST in the 1st for 5 runs, had a 6-0 lead after 2, and piled on 4 runs in the 6th to chase FISTER and put the game completely out of reach.

AAA:  Portland 8, Tacoma 3

TAC:  44-44... POR:  45-41
(League:  274/346/437... 4.74 ERA)

Joe Woerman:  6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER (HR), 4 walks, K, hit batter (12 GS +5, 6.34 ERA, 65.1 IP, 6 HR, 56/44 BB/K)
Jake Woods:  1.1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, walk, K (26 app, 4.66 ERA, 46.1 IP, 6 HR, 18/37 BB/K)
Tracy Thorpe:  one out, 1 H, 5 ER (HR), 4 walks, K (14 app, 9.82 ERA, 14.2 IP, 5 HR, 11/18 BB/K)
Jon Huber:  one out, 2 H, 1 ER, K (31 app, 5.90 ERA, 39.2 IP, 1 HR, 13/29 BB/K)
Tug Hulett:  2-4, solo HR, solo HR, walk (289/366/488)
Victor Diaz:  1-4, double, R, K (286/367/492)
Prentice Redman:  2-4 (316/371/561)
Charlton Jimerson:  1-4, RBI, K, SB #12 (242/256/453... 2 walks, 74 K in 190 AB)

Joe Woerman managed to string together 6 solid innings by being his usual flyball-and-walk-prone self... but with a man on and one out in the 8th, Tracy Thorpe let this game get away faster than his body mass index, going walk, walk, walk (which forced in a run), GRAND SLAM (okay, he mixed in a strikeout, but still) to turn a 3-1 Rainiers lead into a 6-3 deficit, and he walked another batter before Jon Huber came in, allowed a single and a 2 run double to make it 8-3.

Tacoma OF watch:  WLAD in left, Jimerson in center and Prentice Redman in right, with Victor Diaz at DH.
