Last Night on the Farm - 4/26/13
Last night while the Knicks were moving within 1 game of the second round and the Jets were adding a 6th mediocre quarterback to their roster, these 4 minor league games were played. Let’s have a look: Tacoma 10, Las Vegas 1Carlos Torres started and proved why he shouldn’t be in the AAA rotation anymore, giving up 6 runs on 9 hits in 5 innings. Darin Gorski pitched a scoreless inning of relief, but was followed by Dylan Owen, who gave up 3 runs in 2 innings. Josh Satin had 2 of the 51’s 4 hits. Kirk Nieuwenhuis was 1 for 4 with a double. Akron 4, Binghamton 0Rafael Montero took his first loss of the season, giving up 2 runs on 4 hits over 5 innings, although he struck out 8 and walked 2. Chase Huchingson pitched 2 scoreless innings, despite giving up 4 hits. Jack Leathersich struck out 3 but allowed 2 hits and a walk in a scoreless inning; Leathersich hasn’t allowed a run in 11 innings this year, but he’s walked quite a few batters in the process. Offensively, the B-Mets had 5 hits, drew 2 walks, and struck out 16 times, enough said. St. Lucie 5, Bradenton 2Angel Cuan was decent for once, allowing just 2 runs over 5 innings. Jim Fuller and T.J. Chism both pitched 2 scoreless innings with 3 strikeouts each. Fuller has pitched 12.1 scoreless innings to start the season, allowing just 5 hits. Dustin Lawley homered twice, driving in 3 runs; he has 5 homers on the season, which goes well with his .184 average. Albert Cordero had 2 hits and Travis Taijeron doubled. Savannah 4, West Virginia 2Steven Matz was pretty good, but his outing was pretty short. He lasted 4.1 innings with 2 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Tim Peterson, Julian Hilario, and Beck Wheeler combined for 4.2 scoreless innings, allowing just 1 hit. The Gnats had just 7 hits, all singles. Chad Zurcher had 2 hits. Jayce Boyd, Kevin Plawecki, and Phillip Evans were among the players with 1 hit each. Brandon Nimmo got the day off.
