6/13 Minor League Wrap-Up

New, 7 comments

Though the M's gifts to their fans come in the form of baseball excrement, the Mariners minor league clubs had a little gift for you on Friday night.  See if you can notice.

On to the wrap-up!

VENEZUELA~!  VSL Mariners 2, VSL Tigers 1
(League:  260/346/360... 3.78 ERA)

Gerardo Esparza:  6.2 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 walks, 6 K (6 GS +1, 0.85 ERA, 31.2 IP, 7/24 BB/K)
Mayckol Guaipe:  2.1 IP, 2 K, wild pitch (10 app, 1.80 ERA, 20 IP, 1 HR, 8/13 BB/K)
Jorge Agudelo:  2-3, double, 2 RBI (329/442/388)
Michael Acevedo:  2-4, K (278/381/400)
Eduardo Garcia:  1-2, double, R, walk

Gerardo Esparza had another impressive start, as the M's got all the offense they needed from a two out Jorge Agudelo RBI double and a bases loaded sac fly RBI from... Jorge Agudelo.  Yeah, great day for Jorge.

Dominican:  The DSLMs had the day off.

A:  They played two in Clinton!

Game 1:  Wisconsin 7, Clinton 5, 8 innings


Nathan Adcock:  7 IP, 5 H, (4 R) 3 ER, walk, 9 K, 3 wild pitches (12 GS +1, 3.54 ERA, 68.2 IP, 3 HR, 27/73 BB/K)
Ryan Moorer:  no outs recorded, 2 H, (1 R) 0 ER, walk (21 app, 3.97 ERA, 22.2 IP, 1 HR, 11/17 BB/K)
Justin Souza:  1 IP, 2 K (22 app, 4.40 ERA, 28.2 IP, 3 HR, 7/30 BB/K)
Maximo Mendez:  1-4, double, R, K (250/346/354)
Juan Diaz:  1-3, double, 2 R, RBI, walk (246/286/308)
Ronald Garth:  2-3, 3 run HR
Gavin Dickey:  1-2, 3 run HR (297/349/426)
Alex Liddi:  1-3, double, 2 K

The T-Rats got their runs in two big innings.  Gavin Dickey hit a 3 run HR in the 3rd, and Ronald Garth's 3 run HR, his 1st of the season, powered a 4 run 8th.

Game 2:  Wisconsin 5, Clinton 3, 7 innings

WIS:  29-34... CLI:  40-24
(League:  248/321/368... 3.59 ERA)

Walter Suriel:  4 IP, 5 H, (3 R) 2 ER, 2 walks, 5 K, wild pitch, 2 hit batters (11 app, 1 GS, 6.00 ERA, 18 IP, 2 HR, 15/19 BB/K)
Travis Mortimore:  2 IP, K (20 app, 0.64 ERA, 28.1 IP, 10/21 BB/K)
Robert Harmon:  1 IP, 1 H, K (17 app, 3 GS, 8.74 ERA, 22.2 IP, 3 HR, 17/23 BB/K)
Edilio Colina:  2-4, double, 2 R, 2 K (306/372/398)
Ronald Garth:  2-3, double, R, K (247/294/348)
Calvin Beamon:  1-3, double, RBI, K (237/307/328)
Alex Liddi:  1-3, R, RBI (222/287/330)
Blake Ochoa:  1-3, solo HR (272/337/391)

Clinton jumped on Walter Suriel (making a rare start thanks to the doubleheader) in the 3rd, but those 3 runs were all that they got.  Blake Ochoa solo homered in the 3rd.  Edilio Colina came home on a wild pitch in the 4th.  Three T-Rats runs in an interesting 6th (in which Clinton manager Mike Micucci got ejected for arguing a dubious field call) gave the T-Rats the lead for good.

A+:  High Desert 5, Lake Elsinore 4
Mavs:  30-38... Lake:  32-36
(League:  267/337/399... 4.42 ERA)

Alfredo Venegas:  4 IP, 3 H, (4 R) 3 ER, 4 walks, K (12 app, 4 GS, 4.60 ERA, 45 IP, 3 HR, 14/46 BB/K)
Austin Bibens-Dirkx:  2 IP, 3 H, wild pitch (20 app, 4.97 ERA, 29 IP, 5 HR, 9/19 BB/K)
Steve Uhlmansiek:  two outs, 1 H (11 app, 0.69 ERA, 13 IP, 1 HR, 8/11 BB/K)
Bryan Harris:  1 IP, 2 walks, K (15 app, 6.35 ERA, 17 IP, 3 HR, 3/10 BB/K)
Aaron Cotter:  1.1 IP (27 app, 3.15 ERA, 34.1 IP, 3 HR, 8/28 BB/K)
Kuo Hui Lo:  3-5, double, K (242/298/352)
Carlos Triunfel:  1-5, RBI, K (239/291/320)
Greg Halman:  1-4, double, R, RBI, K (273/325/581)
Travis Scott:  1-4, R, RBI (260/306/379)
Carlos Peguero:  2-4, 2 doubles, RBI, 2 K (297/321/469)
Jose Yepez:  2-4, solo HR, 2 R (260/314/365)
Jamie McOwen:  2-4, double (243/303/324)

Alfredo Venegas, once again trying to cut it as a starter, struggled after the 3rd and could not record an out in the 5th.  Austin Bibens-Dirkx finished the rocky 5th with a 4-3 deficit, but the Mavs ground out a couple runs in the 7th to take the 5-4 lead for good.  Bryan Harris is rebounding from his rcky start in Hgh A and Aaron Cotter's arm may explode from the workload anyday now.

AA:  West Tenn 12, Chattanooga 4, 8 innings (rain)
WTN:  40-28... CHA:  36-32
(League:  262/341/396... 4.20 ERA)

Rich Dorman:  6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 8 K, wild pitch (14 GS, 2.62 ERA, 89.1 IP, 5 HR, 29/79 BB/K)
Craig James:  one out, 3 H, (3 R) 2 ER, 2 walks, K (22 app, 4.97 ERA, 25.1 IP, 2 HR, 13/31 BB/K)
Roman Martinez:  two outs, K (18 app, 5.48 ERA, 21.1 IP, 1 HR, 12/18 BB/K)
Shawn Kelley:  1 IP, 2 K
Michael Saunders:  3-4, double, 3 R, RBI, walk, K (291/374/481)
Mark Kiger:  2-4, 3 R, RBI, K (214/345/291)
Mike Wilson:  3-5, 3 run HR, 5 RBI (259/346/514)
Johan Limonta:  2-5, RBI, 2 K (321/403/545)
Adam Moore:  2-4, double, R, 2 RBI (308/385/464)
Luis Valbuena:  2-4, double, R, RBI, K (297/371/467)

A dominant Rich Dorman + an explosive DIAMOND JAXX offense = easy win

AAA:  Tacoma 7, Sacramento 6
TAC:  33-34... SAC:  41-27
(League:  274/346/432... 4.70 ERA)

Joe Woerman:  6 IP, 5 H, 4 ER (HR), 4 walks, 7 K, hit batter (8 GS +5, 8.93 ERA, 40.1 IP, 4 HR, 41/31 BB/K)
Tracy Thorpe:  1.2 IP, 2 H, walk, 3 K (8 app, 7.71 ERA, 9.1 IP, 3 HR, 6/9 BB/K)
Jared Baek Bait Wells:  1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, walk, 2 K (26 app, 5.27 ERA, 27.1 IP, 1 HR, 16/25 BB/K)
Tug Hulett:  1-5, RBI, 2 K (283/355/433)
Matt Tuiasosopo:  2-3, 2 run HR, 3 R, 2 walks, K (257/344/377)
Jeff Clement:  0-4, 2 R, walk, K (347/468/701)
Victor Diaz:  2-3, 3 run HR, 4 RBI, walk (280/358/551)
Prentice Redman:  2-4, RBI (304/377/493)

This was a game of trading blows.  Victor Diaz hit a 3 run bomb in the 3rd.  Joe Gaetti's 2 run double powered a game-tying 3 run 4th on Joe Woerman, who despite his usual wildness worked 6 innings without serious damage, and struck out 7 to boot.

Down 4-3, Victor Diaz singled in a run and Prentice Redman singled in another to give the Rainiers a 5-4 lead.  In the 9th, Matt Tuiasosopo hit a surprise 2 out, 2 run blast in the 9th to give the Rainiers a 7-4 lead.

The Rainiers did get a scare in the bottom 9th, as Jeff Baisley doubled in a run with one out, and a throw YIKES AND AWAY by Tuglett allowed another to come in... but Baek Bait got two quick outs to end the ballgame.
