8/14 Minor League Wrap-Up

- August is the month of minor league updates for several useful sites: Minor League Splits has finally uploaded a ton of data from the Mariners org, and pretty much everyone from the AZL on up is searchable. Still no data from the DSL or VSL but given they had next to no data on 2008 before now, I'll gladly take it. This data is an upgrade over First Inning's pitcher stats in that MLS has line drive data, very important for getting a handle on how much variance has affected pitchers' numbers. The site as a whole, when updated, is a baseball nerd's statgasm for the minors, so go check it out.

- Some fun facts about Everett's 4-0 loss to the last place Yakima Bears:

Number of bases by Luis Nuñez (includes hits, walks and steals): 6
Number of bases by rest of team: 5 (this includes a Tyson Gillies triple)
Number of hits by Aquasox players not named Tyson Gillies or Luis Nuñez: 0

Some more numbers:

Runs per game allowed by Yakima this season: 5.49 (most in NWL)
Runs scored by Aquasox in 4 games this series: 10
Runs per game scored by Yakima this season: 4.14 (2nd least in NWL)
Runs scored by Yakima in 4 games this series: 21
Losses this series by Aquasox to Yakima Bears: 3
Number of innings completed by the Aquasox with a lead: 6
Record of all other NWL teams against Yakima this season: 33-15

Everett is not having a good series. One game left.

Number of walks on season by Luis Nuñez as of August 7: 2
Number of walks by Luis Nuñez since August 7: 2

There is hope.

- Phillipe Aumont made his return to the rotation, finishing 4 shaky but useful innings against the infamous Peoria Chiefs, the first time the T-Rats have played them since the massive Peoria-Dayton brawl where that Peoria reliever ended up in the slam for throwing at the Dayton dugout, missing said dugout and plunking a fan. True to form, they plunked Edilio Colina in the 3rd and knocked him out of the game (okay, it was an accident).

Aumont, meanwhile, had himself a more measured outing:

1st: Plunk, groundball, line drive, groundball
2nd: Strikeout (swing), flyball (HR), groundball, groundball
3rd: Walk, wild pitch, strikeout (swing), groundball, groundball
4th: Groundball, strikeout (swing), line drive, flyball

Plenty of groundballs, and though they got RISP in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd frames, aside from the home run, runners only got into scoring position via smallball. Peoria couldn't really hit Aumont all that much.

- Mike Wilson woke up with a couple hits yesterday, after what had been a 3 for 26 slump in which he managed to draw 10 walks in 36 PAs but also struck out 10 times. When over half your plate appearances end without a ball in play... THAT's a slump. Credit to Mike for drawing walks and working his way through it with patience.

- Travis Chick got the start for Tacoma yesterday and responded with the game of his life, throwing a complete game two hit victory against the slumpbusting Las Vegas 51's.

1st: Strikeout (called), pop-up, flyball
2nd: Strikeout (swing), pop-up, flyball
3rd: Flyball, groundball, strikeout (swing)
4th: Flyball, flyball (HR), groundball, strikeout (swing)
5th: Strikeout (swing), pop-up, groundball
6th: Line drive, flyball, strikeout (called), groundball
7th: Strikeout (called), groundball, flyball
8th: Line drive, groundball, strikeout (called)
9th: Groundball, strikeout (swing), groundball

Groundballs: 7
Flyballs: 6 (1 HR)
Line Drives: 2
Pop Ups: 3
Walks: 0
Strikeouts: 9

Chick threw 120 pitches, 81 for strikes. He struck out a batter in every inning. I'm not sure what else to say about this, given this came out of nowhere.

Stats below the jump....

Dominican: Though a DSLMs game was scheduled with the AthleticsUno, for some reason no results are listed, with no mention of a rainout or anything else. This could be a delay in receiving the results, strange given results for the other Santo Domingo North complex games, a doubleheader between the Phillies and AthleticsDos, were listed. I'll follow up later to see if this game was in fact played.
