9/3: Minor League Wrap-Up

Tacoma fell to Sacramento, 2-0. Jesse Foppert is beginning to regain is endurance, as he lasted four innings in the start, but he and the rest of the Tacoma bullpen couldn't get any kind of support from a slow offense despite pitching pretty well. Justin Leone reached base three times and Ramontiago had a walk and a double, but Tacoma only got two runners to third base all day long. Rafael Soriano made another relief appearance, topping out in the 95-96 range. Notables:

Foppert: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Nageotte: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB
Soriano: 1 IP, 2 K
Leone: 1-2, 2 BB
Santiago: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Cabrera: 1-3 (fast-tracked)
Choo: 1-4

San Antonio lost a close on to Corpus Christi, 3-2. It was a 3-2 game entering the bottom of the third, and it stuck that way, as Jon Huber, Tim Rall, and Tim McClaskey all pitched well for the final two-thirds of the contest. The Missions didn't get anyone past first base after the third inning and only had seven baserunners in all, with Adam Jones getting on twice. Notables:

Huber: 5 IP, 9 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 7 K
Jones: 2-4
Bubela: 1-4
Castro: 1-4
Espy: 1-4

Inland Empire dropped a 6-1 contest to Rancho Cucamonga. Mumba Rivera went just 4.2 innings in the start, allowing a run on seven baserunners, but everything would go to hell in the top of the sixth. Trying to keep a 1-0 defecit as it was, Aaron Trolia melted down, allowing three singles, a walk, and committing an error in giving up a four-run inning that iced the game. The 66ers would get a pair of doubles from Trevor Heid and one from Mike Garciaparra, but they didn't mean much of anything by the end. Notables:

Rivera: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
Heid: 2-3, 2 2B
Garciaparra: 1-4, 1 2B
Arroyo: 2-4
Dominguez: 1-3
Gergel: 1-4

Wisconsin shut out Beloit, 1-0. Despite getting just one run of support, Aaron Jensen made it work, spinning seven innings without allowing anyone to score. Ivan Blanco and Eric O'Flaherty inherited the finishing job and closed out the shutout. That one run? An RBI single by Jack Arroyo in the top of the seventh. Marshall Hubbard and Chris Colton each had two hits, while Josh Womack walked twice. Notables:

Jensen: 7 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 7 K
Arroyo: 1-4
Hubbard: 2-4
Colton: 2-3
Navarro: 1-4
Womack: 0-2, 2 BB
Clement: 0-4 (4 strikeouts)

Everett used an offensive explosion to beat Salem-Keizer, 13-7. The Aquasox scored as many runs in the first inning as the other four minor league affiliates did in their combined 36, but they didn't stop there, getting a ton of support from the bottom of the lineup in pushing across a baker's dozen. The 6-through-9 hitters all had two hits and drove in eight total runs, while Ron Prettyman, Mike Saunders, and Alex Gary all went deep. Notables:

Fagan: 6 IP, 8 H, 5 R (4 ER), 3 BB, 2 K
Prettyman: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 HR
Gary: 2-5, 1 HR
Saunders: 1-4, 1 HR
Tucker: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 BB
Hudson: 2-5, 1 2B
Craig: 2-4, 2 BB
Flaig: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Valbuena: 1-5, 1 BB
