8/6 Minor League Wrap-Up

So after a day spent with various reformed drug users, criminals and otherwise mentally unstable patrons as the receptionist for a psychiatric clinic, I FINALLY got around to this after I got home today.

I'll keep it brief.

On to the wrap-up!

Dominican:  AthleticsUno 5, Mariners 4
DSLM's:  31-21... DSLA1's:  34-18

Henry Perez:  3.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 walks, 3 K
Felix Bautista:  2.1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER
Anthony Fernandez:  2 IP, 2 H, 2 K, wild pitch
Mario Flores:  sac fly RBI (.270/382/.527)
Rudy van Heydoorn:  1-4, double, RBI, K (.208/.315/.358)
Joel Mendez:  3-4, 2 R (.309/.370/.383)
Victor Ozuna:  1-3, R, RBI (.271/.426/.271)
Augusto Marte:  2-4, K (.277/.417/.426)

The A1's had a 5-0 lead after 5, and it took 4 late runs to make the score as close as it looked.  Amelis Carvajal was one base hit from tying the ballgame but he popped out to end it.

Arizona:  Mariners 2, Royals 1
AZLM's:  6-3... AZL Royals:  6-2

Jacob Wild:  5 IP, 3 H, 9 K
Eddy Fernandez:  2 IP, 1 H, (1 R) 0 ER, walk, 2 K, hit batter
Travis Mortimore:  2 IP, 2 H, 2 K, hit batter
Daniel Carroll:  1-4, RBI, walk, K (.338/.430/.419)
Brandon Fromm:  1-3, double, walk, K (.208/.298/.333)
Juan Fuentes:  pinch hit RBI single (.315/.373/.382)
Tyson Gillies:  2-3, R, walk

Jacob Wild finally got himself a start and he maximized it, striking out 9 over 5 innings while the AZLM's tacked on a run.  The AZL Royals got it back off Eddy Fernandez in the 6th, but the AZLM's got the lead back in the 8th when Juan Fuentes pinch hit and smoked a single into left to cash in Mario Martinez, opening the door for Travis Mortimore to... shut the door.

a:  Tri City 4, Everett 2, 11 innings
EVE:  22-25... 3C:  18-29

Juan Carlos Ramirez:  6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, walk, K, wild pitch
Nick Hill:  2 IP, 1 H, walk, K
Aaron Brown:  3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 4 K
Kris Sanchez:  2-5, R, RBI, 2 K
Manelik Pimentel:  2-3, RBI, walk
Jeff Dunbar:  0-4, 4 K: The Golden Sombrero

Aaron Brown was left in just a bit too long.

A:  Fort Wayne 9, Wisconsin 8
WIS:  15-27... FTW:  16-26

Anthony Varvaro:  4 IP, 6 H, 3 ER (HR), 4 walks, 4 K, hit batter
Drew Fiorenza:  2 IP, walk, K, wild pitch
Michael Wagner:  1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER (HR), 2 walks
Rollie Gibson:  1 IP, 3 H, 4 ER (HR), walk
Ronald Garth:  2-5, double, solo HR, 2 R (.241/.313/.425)
Alex Liddi:  3-5, 2 doubles, 2 R, K (.229/.300/.371)
Joe White:  2-3, double, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 walks, K (.320/.418/.476)
Gavin Dickey:  2-4, solo HR, 2 RBI, K (.202/.258/.337)
James McOwen:  2-4, R, 2 RBI, SB (.273/.291/.306)
Blake Ochoa:  1-4, RBI, K

The T-Rats had a 4-3 lead after 5.  Alex Liddi doubled to lead off the 6th and Joe White immediately cashed him in to make it 5-3.  Ronald Garth hit his 4th HR of the year with two outs in the 7th to make it 6-3.  However, Michael Wagner walked the leadoff batter in the bottom 7th, got two force outs where Leury Bonilla failed to turned the DP both times, then gave up a 2 run HR to Tom King to make it 6-5.  Wagner even loaded the bases before getting the final out of the 7th.

James McOwen hits singles in his, all the time, and a two out single cashed in Joe White to stretch it back out to 7-5.  Blake Ochoa, now getting DH time to take advantage of his hot MWL start, knocked in McOwen with a two out single to make it 8-5 (though he only went 1 for 4 yesterday).

Then the bottom fell out on Rollie Gibson.  Walk, single, RBI single, 3 run bomb, 9-8 Fort Wayne, three quick outs.

In the top 9th against RJ Rodriguez, Ronald Garth hit a two out double and Joe White walked, but Gavin Dickey went down on strikes to end it.

A+:  High Desert had Monday off.  They'll start a series in Rancho Cucamonga (22-22) in the next hour and change.

AA:  West Tenn 6, Carolina 5
WTN:  18-26... CAR:  21-23

Joe Woerman:  6 IP, 7 H, (3 R) 1 ER, 2 walks, 6 K
Brodie Downs:  2 IP, 2 H, walk
Mumba Rivera:  1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, walk, 2 K, wild pitch
Brent Johnson:  1-5, RBI (.286/.369/.389)
Marshall Hubbard:  3-5, 3 run HR, K (.253/.347/.399)
Rene Rivera:  3-4, double, R, 2 RBI, SB! (.202/.265/.294)

The Mudcats built a 3-0 lead through 3 on Joe Woerman, but eventually the DIAMOND JAXX got around to scoring a run in the 5th, then another in the 7th, and meanwhile, Woerman held the fort through 6, and got help from Brodie Downs through the 8th.  In the top 8th, Marshall Hubbard crapped all over a suck pitch with 2 men on to give the DIAMOND JAXX a 5-3 lead.  Brent Johnson cashed in a run with a single in the top 9th for insurance, and it was a good thing, because Mumba Rivera came in for the bottom 9th and suffered.  He walked the leadoff batter, struck out the next hitter on a wild pitch, then watched a grounder turn into a single, runners on the corners.  Pinch hitter Grant Psomas lined a single to cash in a run, 6-4 with runners on 1st and 2nd.  Alejandro De Aza popped up for two outs, but Eric Riggs lined a single to right to cash in another run and make it 6-5 with two down and runners on the corners... but Chase Lambin fortunately struck out to end the ballgame.
