6/10 Minor League Wrap-Up, Belated and Abbreviated Edition

New, 23 comments

Sorry for the delay yet again.  It's been that sort of week and will be through the weekend.  But I did want to give you Tuesday's results, notable for the 1st career home run of young Phenom Carlos Triunfel.

Dave Cameron gives the moment a far better treatment than I can or would have (had I not been buried in last-minute errands).  Triunfel may still have a ways to go with his defensive fundamentals, and may have some physical development to make before he can add power, but that he is already able as an 18 year old to not just stand in and hold his own against professional pitchers 4-5 years his senior (many of which cut their teeth against high college-level competition before going pro), but can hit for solid contact with any sort of consistency, is flat out amazing, and my mind can't quite wrap around what this kid's potential looks like.

So on to a belated wrap-up.  The next will come at some point today.

Scores and lines only for the Rookie leagues.

Like Aumont, Donnie Hume hit the wall today, and the Bees benefitted, as they piled on five quick runs and had this game in the bag by the time Hume called it a night after the 2nd.

From this point, I had not compiled cumulative stats and records before fate intervened, so there won't be any season or standings numbers.  What I can provide is how everyone did, of course.

A+:  High Desert 17, Rancho Cucamonga 7

Anthony Varvaro:  3.1 IP, 4 H, (6 R) 5 ER, 6 walks, 3 K, wild pitch
Bryan Harris:  1.2 IP
Alfredo Venegas:  1 IP, 1 H, 3 K
Ausin Bibens-Dirkx:  3 IP, 1 H, 1 ER (HR)
Leury Bonilla:  1-4, double, 2 R, RBI, walk, K
Kuo Hui Lo:  1-3, 2 R, RBI, walk, K
Chris Minaker:  3-4, 2 doubles, R, 3 RBI, K
Travis Scott:  3-5, double, R, 2 RBI
Greg Halman:  2-5, 2 run HR, solo HR, 2 K
Carlos Triunfel:  2-4, 2 run HR, 3 R, walk
Jamie McOwen:  2-5, R
Ogui Diaz:  2-4, 3 R, RBI, walk, 2 K

Given the struggles this talented young man was facing this season, he needed, in the worst way, the performance he put forth tonight.

So congratulations, Austin Bibens-Dirkx, for your 3 strong relief innings.  After the repeated woes of this season, that the worst you have to show for three innings of work is a single solo shot is a testament that you've still got it.

Oh, and the Mavs starting 2nd baseman hit his first pro home run too.  Did you know he's only 18?  Pretty cool, huh?

AA:  The West Tennessee DIAMOND JAXX, like me, checked out on Tuesday.  They started a 5 game home series with-LOOK OUT!... the Chattanooga Lookouts on Wednesday.

AAA:  Salt Lake 7, Tacoma 4

Robert Rohrbaugh:  6 IP, 7 H, 7 ER (HR), 3 walks, 4 K
Jon Huber:  2 IP
Jeff Clement (DH):  1-3, double
Victor Diaz:  1-4, RBI, K
Bryan LaHair:  1-4, double, R, RBI, 2 K
Prentice Redman:  2-4, double, R, K
Rob Johnson:  2-4, 2 RBI

Salt Lake pounded away at Robert Rohrbaugh for 4 runs in the 1st, and had a comfortable 7-2 lead once he was finally lifted after 6, as Daren Brown left him out there to soak up innings and rest the pen.  Jon Huber rebounded from a bad outing to throw two perfect innings against a Bees team that had packed it in with a comfortable lead.
