Triple-A — Omaha 9, Portland 5
Craig Stansberry (SS): 1-for-5
Matt Antonelli: 1-for-2, 3 BB
Chase Headley: 0-for-5
Brian Myrow: 2-for-5, 2B
Edgar Gonzalez (RF): 1-for-4, HR
Will Venable (DH): 0-for-2, 2 BB
Chip Ambres (CF): 1-for-4, HR
Nick Hundley: 0-for-2, 2 BB, 2 E
Cesar Ramos: 1.2 IP, 8 H, 7 R, 0 HR, 4 BB, 1 SO (75 pitches, 38 strikes)
Dirk Hayhurst: 3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 2 SO, HBP
Mauro Zarate: 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 1 SO
Adam Bass: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 2 SO
Venable still hasn’t played the field since returning from the disabled list… Ramos finally had one of those games… I wouldn’t mind seeing Hayhurst get a shot with the big club at some point.
Double-A — Midland 9, San Antonio 3
Drew Macias: 1-for-4, BB
Chad Huffman: 1-for-3, 2 BB
Kyle Blanks: 1-for-4, BB
Craig Cooper: 1-for-4
Jose Lobaton: 0-for-3, BB
Mike Ekstrom: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 9 R, 2 HR, 2 BB, 2 SO, HBP
High-A — Modesto 4, Lake Elsinore 0
Cedric Hunter: 1-for-4
Eric Sogard: 0-for-4
Mitch Canham: 0-for-2, 2 BB
Kellen Kulbacki: 0-for-4
Rayner Contreras: 0-for-3
Nathan Culp: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 4 SO, WP (10 GO)
The once-potent Storm offense is sputtering. That’s three shutouts in four days if you’re keeping score at home (they scored two runs in the other game).
Low-A — South Bend 2, Fort Wayne 0
Bradley Chalk: 1-for-3, BB
Andrew Cumberland (SS): 1-for-4, SB
Shane Buschini: 0-for-4
Felix Carrasco: 0-for-4, E
Yefri Carvajal: 2-for-3, BB
Wynn Pelzer: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 2 SO, WP, HBP
Robert Woodard: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 2 SO
The Wizards also were blanked Friday, completing an organizational 0-for-5 on the day… I remain intrigued by Pelzer and Woodard.
Based on the ultra-small-sample-size of 1 game (he pitched against the Oregon St Beavers in the College World Series a couple of years ago), I do not find Robert Woodard intriguing. His comp in my mind is Vern Sterry … and I’m not sure where Vern is these days. Colt Morton prolly knows, as they were battery mates at NC St, but now I’m on a tangent.
Based on comments by the MadFriars, I do find Wynn Pelzer intriguing.
A MadFriars subscriber posted this set of pics he took up at Lake Elsinore last Sunday (Hunter had 5 hits, Carter had another grand slam. Dunn got hammered.)
*VERY* fun pics … check ‘em out!
