New, comments

This wrap-up's gonna be so quick and dirty your mom's gonna be impressed.

On to the wrap-up!

VENEZUELA~!  VSL Mariners 7, VSL Tigers 3
VSLMs:  7-7... VSL Tigres:  1-13

Jessie Nava:  4 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 walks, 2 K, 3 wild pitches, 2 hit batters
Yoervis Medina:  5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, walk, 3 K, wild pitch
Manuel Campos:  1 IP, 2 K
Carlos Ramirez:  1-4, double, K
Jorge Agudelo:  1-5, R, 3 RBI, walk
Rigoberto Rangel:  2-5, double, 2 RBI, K
Michael Acevedo:  3-4, 2 run HR

The VSLMs, trailing 3-1, tied this game in the top 8th when, after Mario Yepez became one of the SIX VSLMs hit by a pitch in this game, Michael Acevedo crapped all over some Tigre's suck pitch to tie the ballgame.

They blew it open in the top 10th, with Jorge Agudelo singling with the bases loaded and two out to cash in two, and Rigoberto Rangel doubling to cash in two more.  Needless to say, the worst team in the VSL had no answer in the bottom 10th.

A:  Wisconsin 2, Kane County 1
WIS:  22-27... KC:  31-21

Phillipe Aumont:  5 IP, 3 H, 2 walks, 6 K, hit batter (10 app, 4 GS, 1.50 ERA, 36 IP, 2 HR, 11/35 BB/K)
Ryan Moorer:  2 IP, 2 H, 2 K (16 app, 2.89 ERA, 18.2 IP, 1 HR, 8/16 BB/K)
Justin Souza:  two outs, 2 H, 1 ER, K (16 app, 3.80 ERA, 21.1 IP, 1 HR, 6/19 BB/K)
Jose Escalona:  one out, K (7 app, 1.42 ERA, 6.1 IP, 3/7 BB/K)
Keith Meyer:  1 IP, 2 K (13 app, 3.05 ERA, 20.2 IP, 2 HR, 9/22 BB/K)
Juan Diaz:  1-3, 2 RBI (235/286/301)
rest of T-Rats lineup:  3-26, 2 R, walk, 9 K

Aumont did load the bases in the 3rd but got out that jam and had no trouble otherwise.

Groundballs:  5
Flyballs:  4
Line Drives:  2
Pop Ups:  1
Walks:  2 (plus 1 hit batter)
Strikeouts:  6

Scott Mitchinson (9 GS, 1.49 ERA, 54.1 IP, 1 HR, 7/55 BB/K) pitched as well as you'd expect him to, with his only run allowed being unearned, but Phillipe Aumont had a fine rebound effort, shutting out the Cougars over 5 innings, and the T-Rats got one heck of a bullpen relay, as save for Bad Souza, the rest of the bullpen put on the clamps and held a 2-1 lead.  Juan Diaz knocke din both T-Rats runs, one in the 6th and the other in the 8th.

A+:  High Desert 4, Stockton 1
Mavs:  25-29... Ports:  31-22

Keith Renaud:  5.1 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 2 walks, 3 K, hit batter (10 GS +1, 6.26 ERA, 54.2 IP, 7 HR, 40/29 BB/K)
Julio Santiago:  1.2 IP, 2 K (16 app, 2.31 ERA, 23.1 IP, 14/23 BB/K)
Aaron Cotter:  1 IP, 1 H, K (21 app, 3.46 ERA, 26 IP, 3 HR, 6/23 BB/K)
Shawn Kelley:  1 IP, 3 K (10 app, 0.00 ERA, 9 IP, 2/9 BB/K)
Tyson Gillies:  1-4, triple, R, K
Carlos Triunfel:  0-3, sac fly RBI, 2 K (273/317/347)
Carlos Peguero:  1-4, RBI, 3 K (288/309/452)
Greg Halman:  1-3, solo HR, K (271/324/578)
Jamie McOwen:  1-3, solo HR (242/311/337)

I'd say Keith Renaud is acquitting himself nicely, wouldn't you?

Groundballs:  7
Flyballs:  7
Line Drives:  2
Walks:  2 (plus 1 hit batter)
Strikeouts:  3

Aaron Cotter is a workhorse, and has also acquitted himself, in this case from a rocky 2007.  There may be a future out of the bullpen for this kid.

AA:  Mississippi 7, West Tenn 2
WTN:  33-21... MIS:  22-32

Justin Thomas:  4.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER (2 HR), walk, 5 K, 2 wild pitches (9 GS +1, 5.30 ERA, 56 IP, 7 HR, 26/54 BB/K)
Roman Martinez:  two outs (14 app, 6.19 ERA, 16 IP, 1 HR, 7/16 BB/K)
Marwin Vega:  1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, walk, wild pitch (15 app, 6.21 ERA, 29 IP, 2 HR, 24/16 BB/K)
Jason Mackintosh:  2 IP (18 app, 3.38 ERA, 21.1 IP, 5/13 BB/K)
Brent Johnson:  1-3, double, RBI, walk, K
Michael Saunders:  1-4, double, RBI (300/365/495)
Johan Limonta:  1-3, double, K (284/380/478)
Jeff Dominguez:  2-3, double, 2 R, walk (217/280/283)

Justin Thomas got rocked for 4 runs in the 1st (in which he threw 2 wild pitches), and he and the DIAMOND JAXX never quite recovered.

Groundballs:  8
Flyballs:  5 (2 HR)
Line Drives:  3
Walks:  1
Strikeouts:  5

AAA:  Fresno 5, Tacoma 4
TAC:  26-27... FRE:  26-27

Robert Rohrbaugh:  6 IP, 7 H, (4 R) 3 ER, 2 walks, 8 K, hit batter (10 GS, 6.06 ERA, 52 IP, 2 HR, 21/37 BB/K)
Scott Shoemaker:  1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, walk (12 app, 2.78 ERA, 22.2 IP, 3 HR, 10/18 BB/K)
Jared "Baek Bait" Wells:  1 IP, 1 H (20 app, 5.57 ERA, 21 IP, 1 HR, 12/14 BB/K)
Shawn Garrett:  1-3, solo HR, walk (291/319/488)
Victor Diaz:  1-4, solo HR, 3 K (289/392/479)
Rob Johnson:  2-3, R, walk, K (239/303/302)
Prentice Redman:  1-4, double, R, K
Oswaldo Navarro:  1-4, double, 2 RBI, K (279/366/364)

As good as Robert Rohrbaugh looked last year in Tacoma, he has looked as bad with the Rainiers in 2007.  After Brian Bocock... yes, Brian Bocock... bunted himself on in the 1st, he stole 2nd, and Scott McClain doubled him in to make it 1-0.  Nate Schierholtz singled to cash McClain in and made it 2-0.

The Rainiers blew up in the 4th when Shawn Garrett and Victor Diaz went back to back yard to tie the ballgame, and doubles by Prentice Redman and Oswaldo Navarro cashed in two more runs to make it 4-2.

The Grizzlies quickly loaded the bases with the first 3 batters in the 6th, and Rohrbaugh plunked Schierholtz to force in a run.  Brian Horwitz's groundout brought in another run and tied the ballgame.  Rohrbaugh got out of the inning but it was the last inning he worked.

Groundballs:  6 (plus 1 bunt by Brian freaking Bocock)
Flyballs:  5
Line Drives:  2
Pop Ups:  1
Walks:  2 (plus 1 hit batter)
Strikeouts:  8

Scott Shoemaker walked Eugenio Velez to lead off the 7th.  Bocock, as you'd guess, bunted him over.  Velez stole 3rd base with two out, then Scott McClain singled him in to give the Grizzlies the lead for good.  The Rainiers did load the bases with two outs in the 8th, but Prentice Redman grounded out to 1st to end the threat.  And to add insult, Wife Vulture came in and closed out the ballgame without incident in the 9th.
