7/31: Minor League Wrap-Up

Gotta be quick:

Tacoma lost to Omaha, 7-6. Cha Baek was roughed up - again - allowing five in four innings to raise his ERA to 6.60, while a late Tacoma rally fell one run short. Greg Dobbs had another three hits (.336), while Abraham Nunez hit his 13th home run. Notables:

Baek: 4 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 1 HR
Dobbs: 3-5
Leone: 2-5, 2 2B
Rifkin: 2-3, 1 BB
Nunez: 2-2, 1 HR, 3 BB
Snelling: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Lopez: 1-4, 1 BB

San Antonio was blasted by Midland, 8-1. Jon Huber went seven strong in the start, allowing just one run, but a pair of Ryan Rowland-Smith errors in the eighth led to a six-run inning that put the Missions way behind (all six runs were unearned). Rene Rivera was the only member of the lineup to have a multihit day. Nathanel Mateo made his debut, allowing two hits in two-thirds of an inning. Notables:

Huber: 7 H, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Rowland-Smith: 0.1 IP, 5 R (0 ER), 3 BB, 1 K
Rivera: 2-3, 1 2B
Jones: 1-4, 1 2B
Castro: 1-1, 1 BB
Guzman: 1-4

Inland Empire was clipped by Rancho Cucamonga, 6-4. A 4-2 lead in the eighth inning couldn't hold up, as Troy Cate surrended four runs in the frame to put the 66ers in a hole. Matt Rogelstad and Michael Garciaparra each had three hits, with Garciaparra reaching base four times in all. Notables:

Moorhead: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Rogelstad: 3-4
Garciaparra: 3-4, 1 BB
Arroyo: 1-5
Cabrera: 1-3, 1 BB
Bradford Jr.: 1-4, 1 HR

Wisconsin downed Burlington, 4-1. It was Aaron Jensen's night to shine, as he allowed a run on nine baserunners over seven innings for the win. His support came from the likes of Oswaldo Navarro, who reached base four times and had a pair of doubles, and Mike Wilson, who had two hits and a double of his own. Notables:

Jensen: 7 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
Navarro: 3-4, 2 2B, 1 BB
Wilson: 2-5, 1 2B
Tuiasosopo: 1-2, 1 BB
Chen: 1-4, 1 2B
Falcon: 1-3, 1 BB

Everett took care of Tri City, 4-3. The Aquasox jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, courtesy of a Luis Valbuena two-run homer and a Jeff Flaig RBI double, and then held on for the rest of the game, coming within 90 feet of blowing the lead in the ninth. Everett managed just five total hits, and Flaig reached base twice to lead the pack. Notables:

Gilmore: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 8 K, 1 HR
Valbuena: 1-3, 1 HR
Clement: 0-2
Flaig: 1-2, 1 2B, 1 BB
Santin: 1-3
Prettyman: 1-4
