5/18: Minor League Wrap-Up

Only two games yesterday:

San Antonio beat Corpus Christi 3-2, in ten innings. Gary Harris hit a tiebreaking home run with one out in the tenth that proved to be the game winner. The game also marked the return of Luis Oliveros, who went 2-4 on the day with an RBI single in the seventh. Thomas Oldham was the starter and got no decision after allowing two runs (both on homers) in six innings. The Missions' bullpen then came in and allowed just one baserunner over four shutout innings to preserve the tie and, later, the lead. Notables:

Oldham: 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 2 K, 2 HR
Betancourt: 1-5
Bohn: 2-4, 1 SB, 1 CS, 1 HBP
Castro: 1-4
Oliveros: 2-4, 1 2B
Guzman: 1-4, 1 3B

Inland Empire topped High Desert, 5-2. (System sweep! System sweep!) All seven runs in the game were scored in the first three innings, highlighted by Chris Colton's two-run double in the second. Jason Mackintosh was fantastic for seven innings, giving way to Gregory Wear, who tossed two frames for the save. Colton, BJ Garbe, and Bryan Lahair all led the offense with two hits apiece, and Adam Jones reached base three times to up his OBP to .343. It's worth nothing that Jones has improved his walk rate by 10% over last season while reducing his strikeouts by 15%. All this coming at a more advanced level of competition. Anyway, notables:

Mackintosh: 7 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 K
Lahair: 2-4
Balentien: 1-4, 1 2B
Garbe: 2-3, 1 2B
Colton: 2-3, 1 2B
Jones: 1-2, 2 BB

Coming up today, Andrew Lorraine goes for Tacoma, Ryan Rowland-Smith for San Antonio, Aaron Trolia for Inland Empire, and Mumba Rivera for Wisconsin.
