Minor League Wrap-Up: 6/4

Tacoma dropped one to Portland, 6-4. Jorge Campillo struggled for five innings but still managed to keep the Beavers at two runs. A 4-2 game in the bottom of the eighth, Sean Green and Masao Kida combined to allow five baserunners and four runs, putting the Rainiers behind the 8-ball. They had a chance to come back, loading the bases with one down in the ninth, but Yuniesky Betancourt hit a tapper back to the mound, and Shin-soo Choo went down swinging to end it. Betancourt still had the only multihit day in the lineup, while Hunter Brown reached base three times. Notables:

Campillo: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 5 BB, 1 K, 1 HR
Snelling: 1-4
Betancourt: 2-5
Spiezio: 1-4
Christianson: 1-4
Olivo: 1-4, 1 HR (Yeah!)
Santiago: 1-3, 1 HR (Yeah!), 1 HBP

San Antonio and Wichita had a doubleheader to make up Friday's rainout. The Missions lost the first one 7-6, as the Mavericks scored runs in each of the final five innings in rallying to victory. Ryan Rowland-Smith tossed a sloppy 5.1, and even four Wichita errors weren't enough to keep San Antonio on top. The Missions won game two, though, 5-0. Jon Huber tossed a complete game (seven inning) shutout, whiffing four and walking one, while Jesse Hoorelbeke's three-run double in the third proved to be the big blow. Notables:

Rowland-Smith: 5.1 IP, 11 H, 4 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 2 K
Huber: 7 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 K
Bubela: 3-8, 1 2B
Guzman: 3-8, 1 2B
Hoorelbeke: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 BB
Menchaca: 3-6, 1 BB
Blakeley: 2-3
Bohn: 2-8

Inland Empire lost to Lake Elsinore, 9-8. Guarding a lead in the bottom of the eighth, Michael Steele collapsed, allowing four hits and three runs to put the 66ers behind 8-6. A Bryan Lahair two-run homer tied things up in the ninth, but Steele was sent right back out there and promptly lost the game. Mumba Rivera had a shaky debut in high-A, giving up five runs in 4.2 innings of work, while Carlos Arroyo led the offense with three hits. Adam Jones reached base another four times, walking twice. Notables:

Rivera: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 5 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
Jones: 2-3, 1 2B, 2 BB (.312/.390/.544)
Rogelstad: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Balentien: 1-4, 1 2B
Lahair: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB
Arroyo: 3-5, 1 2B

Wisconsin took out Southwest Michigan, 7-3. The T-Rats managed just six hits and nine baserunners all day, but some nifty situational hitting allowed them to push seven across. It would be more than they needed, as the pitching staff was able to keep the Rays at bay. Mark Lowe lasted just 3.2 innings, knocked out of the game after suffering an injury to his pitching hand, but the bullpen was sharp and able to hang on to the lead. Asdrubal Cabrera had another two-hit day to lead the lineup. Notables:

Lowe: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Cabrera: 2-4, 1 2B
Tuiasosopo: 1-4, 1 2B
Womack: 1-4
Boucher: 0-3, 1 BB
Johnson: 1-4
