Minor League Wrap-Up: 5/14/06

New, comments

Update: Season lines for selected players added.

Tacoma fell to Albuquerque, 3-0. Kevin Appier was smacked around for five innings, but it was Jesse Foppert who allowed most the damage as he went only an inning and a third of relief giving up two runs on three hits while walking three. UnNomar made his AAA debut and was surprisingly impressive by collecting a basehit and walking twice. Derek from USSM made the trip down there and had some observations, so check them out. I'm back in town now, too. So, I'll be at every Rainiers game for the next month (starting tonight) or so and this section of the wrap-up will be a bit more informative.

Notables:

Kevin Appier: 5.0 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K.
Jesse Foppert: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 2 K.
Shin-soo Choo: 1-3, 2 BB. (.296/.373/.452)
Chris Snelling: 1-5. (.400/.526./.400)
Greg Sears: 2-5.
Adam Jones: 1-3. (.260/.295/.480)
Asdrubal Cabrera: 1-2, 2 BB. (.284/.429/.403)
Little Garciaparra: 1-2, 2 BB.

San Antonio edged Frisco, 5-4. It's funny, but Ryan Feierabend picked up his first win of the year on a game that he probably had no business winning. Feierabend went one out over the minimum and gave up four runs on ten hits. He also walked one and fanned three en route to his W. You can thank some nice relief from Chad Fillinger and Jon Huber for closing the door. Oswaldo Navarro, Bryan LaHair, Wlad!, and Ismael Castro all went multi-hit to lead the Missions.

Notables:

Ryan Feierabend: 5.1 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K.
Sebastien Boucher: 1-5.(.188/.268/.228)
Oswlado Navarro: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 RBI. (.279/.405/.327)
Bryan LaHair: 2-3, 1 BB.
Wladimir Balentien: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI. (.254/.350/.508)
Ismael Castro: 2-4.

Inland Empire held off Stockton, 10-9. And what a bottom of the ninth it was:

Haas Pratt flies out to left fielder Jack Arroyo.
Gregorio Petit singles on a line drive to center fielder Brent Johnson.
With Cameron Coughlan batting, wild pitch by Jose De La Cruz, Gregorio Petit to 2nd.
Cameron Coughlan walks.
Luke Appert grounds out, second baseman Yung Chi Chen to first baseman Marshall Hubbard. Gregorio Petit to 3rd. Cameron Coughlan to 2nd.
Richie RobnettIII singles on a ground ball to right fielder Michael Wilson. Gregorio Petit scores. Cameron Coughlan scores.
Landon Powell grounds into a force out, shortstop Erick Monzon to second baseman Yung Chi Chen. Richie RobnettIII out at 2nd.  

Blowing a three run lead in the ninth would have really, really sucked for Jose De La Cruz, not to mention the offense which played it's collective heart out. Stockton's comeback wasn't limited to ninth, either. They were down 9-3 coming into the bottom of the seventh before scoring two in each frame before the final out. Six of the starting nine 66ers managed at least one basehit and four went multi-hit on the night.

Notables:

Robert Rohrbaugh: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K. (On a pitch count)
Ivan Blanco: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 5 K, 1 HR.
Reed Eastley: 2-5.
Mike Wilson: 2-3, 2 BB, 1 RBI.
Marshall Hubbard: 2-3, 1 2B, 2 BB, 1 RBI.
Ron Prettyman: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 4 RBI.
Jack Arroyo: 1-3, 2 BB.
