9/8: Minor League Wrap-Up

Tacoma dropped game to to Sacramento, 7-4. The Rainiers now trail 2-0 in the best-of-five. Bobby Livingston spun a quality start through six innings and left with a 4-3 lead, but the bullpen couldn't hang on, as Andrew Lorraine and Masao Kida allowed four runs in the last two frames (Kida serving up a two-run shot to AAAA'er Jermaine Clark in the ninth to really put it away). Tacoma had a chance at the end, with the bases loaded against Jairo Garcia, but Wiki Gonzalez struck out to end the game. Shin-soo Choo and Abraham Nunez each reached base three times, while TJ Bohn got on twice and Bohn, Gonzalez, and Aaron Rifkin contributed two-baggers. Notables:

Livingston: 6 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
Choo: 1-3, 2 BB
Nunez: 1-2, 2 BB
Bohn: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Gonzalez: 1-5, 1 2B
Rifkin: 1-4, 1 2B
Jacobsen: 1-4

San Antonio lost to Midland 5-2 and fell behind 2-1 in the series. Thomas Oldham was ugly from the start, lasting just five innings while allowing 11 baserunners and five runs (including a homer). Ryan Rowland-Smith's three innings of shutout relief proved to be too little, too late, as the Missions couldn't get anything going against the tough Rockhound staff. Jaime Bubela, Nate Espy, and Jesse Hoorelbeke each had two hits, while Brian Moon and Gary Harris had RBI singles, but it wasn't enough to rally. Adam Jones was the lineup's goat, as he went 0-5 in the #2 slot with a trifecta of strikeouts. Notables:

Oldham: 5 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
Rowland-Smith: 3 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 2 K
Bubela: 2-5
Espy: 2-3, 1 2B
Hoorelbeke: 2-4
Guzman: 1-4
Jones: 0-5

Wisconsin smashed Beoit, 9-1. J was right - Aaron Jensen was on his game, allowing just two hits over seven innings while striking out five. Meanwhile, the T'Rat offense gave him all the support he'd need, picking up three runs in the second, four in the fourth, and two more in the sixth for good measure. The big hit: a three-run Oswaldo Navarro double that blew it open after the Snappers had picked up a run in the top of the fourth. Marshall Hubbard, suprisingly, was the only member of the lineup to reach base twice. Jeff Clement, on the other hand, didn't reach once. Notables:

Jensen: 7 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, 1 HR
Navarro: 2-5, 1 2B
Clement: 0-5
Hubbard: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Colton: 2-4
Womack: 1-3
Wilson: 1-4, 1 2B
Tuiasosopo: 0-3, 1 BB
