8/2: Minor League Wrap-Up

Omaha whooped up on Tacoma, 7-1. This one wasn't Chris Buglovsky's fault - he left after tossing six shutout innings, having allowed just three hits. It was the relief corp that fell apart, as Emiliano Fruto and Andrew Lorraine combined to surrender seven runs in 1.2 innings. Not that the last five runs really made much of a difference - Mike Wood was on his game, and the Rainiers picked up just six hits all day. Ramontiago had two of 'em. Notables:

Buglovsky: 6 IP, 3 H, 7 K
Choo: 1-4
Santiago: 2-3, 1 2B
Dobbs: 0-4
Ojeda: 1-4
Leone: 0-4
Snelling: 1-4

San Antonio smashed Corpus Christi, 10-4. Facing a 4-3 defecit in the bottom of the seventh, the Missions put up a huge rally of their own, scoring seven runs over the next two innings to turn a close game into a blowout. Jesse Hoorelbeke's three-run homer gave San Antonio the lead, and a few walks, singles, and errors helped them climb comfortably ahead in the next inning. Thomas Oldham got the win with seven effective innings, while TJ Bohn reached base another four times. Notables:

Oldham: 7 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 2 HR
Mateo: 1 IP
Bohn: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Jones: 1-4
Rivera: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Hoorelbeke: 2-5, 1 HR
Castro: 1-3, 1 BB
Espy: 1-2, 2 BB

Inland Empire pounded out 22 hits in beating Lancaster 16-7. Bandbox ballparks are prone to these kinds of offensive outburts (whither Juan Silvestre?). Every 66er who came to the plate picked up at least one hit, while the top five spots in the lineup went a combined 13-22 with nine RBI. Bryan Lahair, Wladimir Balentien, Sebastien Boucher, Luis Oliveros, and Sam Bradford all homered, and it was 11-2 by the third inning courtesy of a ten-run top of the third. Jason Mackintosh has never picked up an easier win. Notables:

Mackintosh: 5 IP, 9 H, 5 R (4 ER), 5 BB, 2 K, 1 HR
Boucher: 3-5, 1 HR, 1 BB
Balentien: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 HR
Lahair: 3-6, 1 HR
Garciaparra: 4-5, 1 2B, 1 BB
Arroyo: 3-6
Cabrera: 1-6
Bradford: 2-5, 1 HR
Oliveros: 2-4, 1 HR

Wisconsin rallied past South Bend, 8-7. Trailing 7-5 midway through the game, the T'Rats manufactured a run in the fifth (walk/steal/wild pitch/sac fly), picked up an RBI single in the sixth, and won with a Mike Wilson single in the ninth. Jeff Clement picked up a hit in his low-A debut, while Wilson had four and a walk. It was a strong effort by the bullpen (4.1 shutout innings), as Julio Santiago was pounded for 12 baserunners and seven runs in 4.2. Notables:

Santiago: 4.2 IP, 10 H, 7 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 2 K
Wilson: 4-4, 1 HR, 1 BB
Clement: 1-4
B Johnson: 1-3, 2 BB
Tuiasosopo: 0-4
Chen: 1-4, 1 BB
Hubbard: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB
Navarro: 2-4, 1 2B

Everett stormed past Yakima, 10-7. When you score eight runs after the seventh inning, chances are you're sitting pretty at the end. That's exactly what happened for the Aquasox, who took the lead for good courtesy of an error and a Daniel Santin double in the top of the ninth. This came after five consecutive Yakima hitters reached with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, three of them crossing the plate. Rollie Gibson vultured the win by retiring the one batter he faced, while Stephen Kahn tossed an inning to pick up his second save. Notables:

Rohrbaugh: 5 IP, 5 H, 4 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
Eastley: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 HR, 1 BB
Flaig: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Sabatella: 3-4, 1 2B
Santin: 2-3, 1 2B, 2 BB
Valbuena: 1-4, 1 BB

Coming up: Yorman Bazardo's debut for San Antonio, Mumba Rivera for Inland Empire, Ivan Blanco for Wisconsin, and Paul Fagan for Everett.
