There was a lot of losing on the farm last night. A lot! Two so-called pitching prospects picked up their 10th loss of the year. Let’s take a look:
Pawtucket 11, Buffalo
It was a typical Pat Misch outing, 4 runs in 5.2 innings, but then things got out of hand when Gustavo Chacin gave up 7 runs and recorded just 1 out. The washed-out former big leaguer is nursing an ERA over 24. Josh Satin only managed 1 hit, but it was a double, and it kept his 13-game hitting streak alive. Zach Lutz returned from the DL and was 1-3 with a walk.
Reading 9, Binghamton 3
Robert Carson was bad yet again, giving up 5 runs on 5 hits and 4 walks in 4 innings, suffering his 10th loss of the season. Brad Holt gave up 2 runs in an inning of work. Allan Dykstra and Raul Reyes had 2 hits each, with Reyes hitting his 9th homerun of the year.
Charlotte 6, St. Lucie 3
Scott Movie only let up 3 runs in 5 innings, but he also gave up 10 hits and suffered his 10th loss of the year. Wilmer Flores was 3-5 with a double. Cesar Puello was 1-3 with 2 walks and an RBI.
Charleston 6, Savannah 5
Angel Cuan struck out 7 in 6 innings, but he also gave up 5 runs and 7 hits and took the loss. Wilfredo Tovar and Albert Cordero both had 3 hits. Darrell Ceciliani and Alonzo Harris both had 2 hits. Blake Forsythe struck out 4 times, but he also hit his 5th homerun of the year.
Staten Island 6, Brooklyn 4
Jeffrey Walters took his 5th loss in 10 starts, giving up 4 runs in 4.2 innings. Daniel Muno, Cole Frenzel, Brian Harrison, and Travis Taijeron all had 2 hits. Harrison doubled and hit a 2-run homer, which were the only extra-base hits for the Cyclones.
Kingsport 5, Burlington 1
The K-Mets were the only affiliate to win last night, doing so behind the effort of Akeel Morris, who was effectively wild yet again. Morris pitched 5 innings, giving up an unearned run on 2 hits, while striking out 4, but he also walked 5. Julio Concepcion and Greg Pron both had 2 hits, a double, and an RBI.
