9/1 Minor League Wrap-Up

With the AZL season over, we see a surprising number of AZLers scattered around the org to try and fill in blanks in these final days of the minor league seasons.  See if you can spot them all.

On to the wrap-up.

a:  Vancouver 6, Everett 0
EVE:  33-39.. VAN:  35-36

Juan Carlos Ramirez:  4 IP, 2 H, (5 R) 3 ER, 4 walks, 7 K, 2 hit batters
Mark Pettis:  3 IP, 3 H, 5 K
Will Brown:  2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 walks, 3 K, wild pitch
The Aquasox were 3 hit, with a walk and 12 K.

Add in Juan Carlos coughing up 5 runs in the top 1st, and this game was basically done for.  That said, welcome to Daniel Carroll and Denny Almonte, who started last night and will be here for the rest of the year... all four games of it.

A:  Kane County 7, Wisconsin 1
WIS:  29-38... KC: 38-29

Michael Renfree:  4 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, walk, 3 K, 2 wild pitches
Rollie Gibson:  2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, walk, 3 K
Tom Ellis:  2.1 IP, 4 H, 1 ER
Gavin Dickey:  3-4 (.228/.286/.384)
Ronald Garth:  2-3, triple, walk, K (.271/.340/.452)
Juan Beltran:  1-2, solo HR, walk (.244/.315/.320)

This whitewashing came with one saving grace, and no, it wasn't Michael Renfree's MWL debut. Just 5 days after hitting his 1st home run of the season, Juan Beltran belted his 2nd blast of the year, a solo shot in the bottom 7th of what was still a wash.

A+:  Lancaster 13, High Desert 10
Mavs:  22-46... Jethawks:  43-25

Marwin Vega: 2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, walk, 3 K, 3 wild pitches, hit batter
Nick Allen:  3 IP, annihilated
Steve Uhlmansiek:  3 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 4 K
Aaron Jensen:  1 IP, 1 H, K
Casey Craig:  3-5, triple, solo HR, 3 R, K (.306/.394/.472)
Carlos Triunfel:  1-5, double, 2 RBI, 2 K (.290/.336/.360)
Jesus Guzman:  3-5, double, solo HR, 2 R, 2 RBI (.298/.368/.537)
Johan Limonta:  2-5, R (.298/.366/.455)
Travis Scott:  2-4, double, 2 run HR, 2 R, walk (.280/.377/.517)
Matt Mangini:  2-5, 2 K (.204/.295/.389)
Eddy Hernandez:  1-4, RBI, 2 K (.188/.247/.295)

The Mavs pitching coach goes out to the mound to talk with Nick Allen during a particularly bad inning.
Coach:  Okay, Nick, I want you to tell me how you're going to get out of this situation.
Nick:  I'm gonna pitch like crap until Scott Steinmann pulls me.
Coach:  ...
Coach:  ::trudges back to dugout::

AA:  Chattanooga 3, West Tenn 1
WTN:  29-38... CHA:  36-32

Travis Chick: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3 walks, 9 K
Craig James:  2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, walk, 3 K, hit batter
David Asher:  two outs, 1 H, walk (intentional)
Jon Nelson:  2-4, double, solo HR
Chris Minaker:  2-4 (.227/.284/.286)
rest of DIAMOND JAXX lineup:  4-25, 4 walks, 5 K

It's at least good to see Jon Nelson hitting the ball somewhat well, as this disappointing AA season draws close to its conclusion.

AAA:  Tacoma 3, Colorado Springs 2
TAC:  67-75... CSP:  68-74

Jake Woods:  6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER (HR), 6 K, balk
Travis Mortimore:  1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, walk, balk
Justin Lehr:  1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 K
Jeremy Reed:  2-4, double (.295/.351/.445)
Prentice Redman:  1-3, RBI, K (.313/.353/.484)
Ronnie Prettyman:  2-3, RBI (.262/.304/.382)
Israel Nuñez:  1-3, double, K

All 3 Rainier runs came in the 1st inning, and a disgruntled Jake Woods, having not received a callup whle John Parrish did, went out and threw 6 of the best innings he's thrown all season, and Peoria closer Travis Mortimore got four outs before Justin Lehr came in and finished for his 1st save of the season.
