5/27: Minor League Wrap-Up

Tacoma took out Fresno, 8-2. Cha Baek was great for seven innings, fanning four while walking none and keeping the Grizzlies off the scoreboard. Ryan Christianson led the offense with three hits - a two-run homer and two RBI singles. Mike Morse and Greg Jacobs chipped in with two hits apiece (Jacobs went deep), while Ramon Santiago hit his fourth home run of the season. Seriously. Oliver Arias' ninth inning appearance was the only blemish, as he surrendered a pair of solo shots. Notables:

Baek: 7 IP, 7 H, 4 H
Strong: 1-4, 1 3B
Choo: 0-4, 1 BB
Morse: 2-4
Christianson: 3-5, 1 HR
Jacobs: 2-4, 1 HR
Santiago: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB

San Antonio lost to Wichita, 6-2. The Wranglers scored five runs in the first three innings against Juan Sandoval, and despite good work from the bullpen, the Missions couldn't climb back into the game. Jesus Guzman and Jaime Bubela led the way with two hits, with Bubela smacking and RBI single and Ismael Castro picking up and RBI walk in the ninth. It was actually a wild ninth inning - with the score 6-0, the first two batters struck out before the next five all reached, and Gary Harris flew out as the tying run to end it. Notables:

Sandoval: 4 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Jimenez: 1 IP, 2 K
Betancourt: 0-4
Bohn: 0-3
Guzman: 2-3, 1 BB
Castro: 0-2, 1 BB
Rivera: 1-4

Inland Empire piled on High Desert, 12-0. It was actually a close game until the seventh inning, when the 66ers broke out for six runs to make it an 8-0 game (they'd add another four in the eighth). Brandon Moorhead was able to keep the Mavericks off the scoreboard, but the real story was the IE offense, which smacked 19 hits and picked up 23 baserunners. The 2-through-5 hitters were a combined 11-17 with six extra-base hits, while Erick Monzon led the way with four hits. Wladimir Balentien's two home runs were his 11th and 12th of the season. Notables:

Moorhead: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 5 K
Looper: 2 IP, 3 K
Garciaparra: 0-4
Balentien: 3-5, 2 HR
Lahair: 3-4, 1 BB
Jones: 3-4, 2 2B, 1 3B (.294/.365/.503)
Monzon: 4-5, 1 2B
Rogelstad: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Garbe: 3-5, 2 2B

Wisconsin blasted Quad Cities, 12-5. The T-Rats jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the fifth and held on the rest of the way, as Jason Snyder picked up the win with six effective innings. Everyone in the starting lineup picked up at least one hit, while Thomas Hubbard and Sebastien Boucher picked up the big blasts with a pair of two-run homers. Nine of Wisconsin's 17 hits went for extra bases, and Rob Johnson upped himself to a .300 average by going 3-6. Notables:

Snyder: 6 IP, 8 H, 3 R (2 ER), 4 K, 1 HR
Navarro: 2-5, 2 2B, 1 BB
Tuiasosopo: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 BB (free-falling)
