Down on the Farm

Minor League Player of the Day: Tim Crabbe – 6 innings pitched, 2 hits, 2 walks, 0 Runs, 4 strikeouts.  Win.

Triple – A
Toledo 2 – Louisville 1

Neftali Soto hit his 3rd double of the season and drove in the Bats lone run.

Pedro Villareal pitched well in the start, but was on the short end of a pitcher’s duel.  Villareal allowed 2 runs, only 1 earned, on 4 hits while striking out 6 in 6 innings pitched.  He’d take the loss.  Jose Arredondo walked 2 in an inning pitched and struck out 1.

Double – 
Pensacola 1 – Mobile 0: Game 1

Tucker Barnhart went 2-2 and drove in the lone Blue Wahoos RBI while Donald Lutz added a double and scored the run for Pensacola.

Tim Crabbe pitched 6 shutout innings, allowing just 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4.  Curtis Partch struck out the side in the 7th for his 2nd save.

Mobile 2 – Pensacola 1: Game 2

The Blue Wahoos managed just 3 hits in this contest.  Steve Selsky led the offensive “surge” by going 1-3 with his 2nd double of the season and scoring the only run.

Yohan Pino made the start and pitched 4 shutout innings, allowing just 2 hits and striking out 7.  Lee Hyde was saddled with the loss after allowing a run in the bottom half of the 7th inning.

High – A
Bakersfield 6 – Stockton 3

The Blaze won their first game of the season and improved to 1-8 overall on the season.  Sammy Diaz went 2-4 and scored twice for the Blaze.  Yorman Rodriguez was slightly better in his 2-4 night as he scored a run and drove in 3 Blaze RBI.  Kyle Waldrop added his 2nd homerun in the contest.

Mike Dennhardt picked up the win in relief for the Blaze after pitching 1.1 scoreless innings.  Dennhardt walked a batter and struck out 1.

Low-A
Dayton 8 – Great Lakes 5

Humberto Valor hit his first homerun of the season in the 2nd inning and drove in 2 RBI to lead the Dragons to victory.  Seth Mejias-Brean scored twice and drove in a run in 4 at-bats.

Ismael Guillon struck out 7 in 4 innings but allowed 6 hits and 2 runs and therefore did not qualify for the win.  Tony Amezcua allowed a run on a hit in 1 inning of relief but picked up his first win of the season.

  2. Disappointing to see Neftali Soto playing 1B at AAA when neither the guy playing 3B (Ray Chang, 30y.o.) or LF (Chis Negron) are prospects.
