5/10: Minor League Wrap-Up

Tacoma downed Round Rock 9-4. The Rainiers were able to ride Damian Moss and a powerful offensive performance to victory, as Moss allowed two runs in five innings and the lineup blasted four home runs. Shin-soo Choo was the hero, finishing 3-4 with a triple, two homers, and a walk, and he's presently sporting a .294/.400/.544 line in AAA action. Cha Baek returned from the DL to throw three relief innings, while Jamal Strong and Aaron Rifkin added home runs. Notables:

Moss: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
Baek: 3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 K, 1 HR
Choo: 3-4, 1 3B, 2 HR, 1 BB

Rifkin: 1-5, 1 HR
Snelling: 1-2, 3 BB
Christianson: 0-4, 1 BB

San Antonio lost to Springfield in extras, 9-6. Bobby Livingston had trouble out of the gate, allowing five runs in the first two innings and lasting just three, but the real trouble came in the twelfth. Emiliano Fruto allowed the first run to score, but an error by Jesus Guzman brought home a second and led to a third, putting the Missions three runs behind. It was a wasted comeback effort, as they had ralled for two in the bottom of the ninth to tie. Five Missions recorded two-hit days, and Jon Nelson blasted his ninth homer of the season - which was responsible for tying the game in the ninth. Notables:

Livingston: 3 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 3 BB
Jimenez: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 BB
Betancourt: 2-6, 1 2B
Nelson: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB
Castro: 2-5
Guzman: 2-5
Bohn: 2-6
Rivera: 1-4

Inland Empire returned the favor by beating Lancaster 13-11 in twelve innings. A Bryan Lahair RBI double and a wild pitch accounted for both run-scoring plays in the final inning, and Chris Key was able to close out the Jethawks with a 1-2-3 twelfth. Ryan Feierabend was hammered out of the gate, letting five runs score in the first inning, but the 66ers were able to ride an incredible 21-hit offensive attack to victory. Carlos Arroyo and Bryan Lahair led the way with four hits apiece, and four other 66ers had 2+ hits. To go with his game-winning double, Lahair hit his third homer of the season in the eighth inning. Notables:

Wisconsin lost to West Michigan, 5-4. It was a spotty start for Aaron Jensen, who allowed four runs in the first three innings and left after five, but the Rattler bats couldn't get anything going until a Chen RBI double in the sixth. After taking advantage of two defensive errors in the seventh, Wisconsin scored three runs and trailed by only one with a man (Cabrera) on third and nobody out, but none of the next three hitters were able to drive him in. Rob Johnson ended the game by fouling out when men on first and second. Three Rattlers accounted for six of the team's seven hits, and Asdrubal Cabrera picked up his first triple of the year. Notables:

Jensen: 5 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR
Cabrera: 2-5, 1 3B
Womack: 0-4, 1 BB
Tuiasosopo: 0-3, 1 HBP
Chen: 2-4, 1 2B
Hubbard: 2-4
Green: 0-4
