The Minors


Not a single thread for the opening day on the farm? I think not!

The Red Wings were dismantled 11-3 by the Red Sox of Pawtucket. Boof Bonser made the start for Pawtucket giving up 3 runs on six hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings.Jacque Jones hit a homer and drew a walk.Swarzak pitched poorly, lasting only 3 innings and letting up 5 ER on 4 hits, but 5 Ks with 0 BB is promising.Wilson Ramos batted fourth in the lineup, but went 0-4.  Brock Peterson went 2-4 with a homer. And Danny Valencia and Luke Hughes hit doubles.

The Rock Cats also lost, this time 5-4. However, to get four runs off of Kyle Drabek is nothing to dismiss. Juan Portes hit a homer, Singleton hit a double, Joe Benson stole a base and Revere hit a single :) Carlos Gutierrez gave up 4 runs in four innings, giving up 7 hits and 3 BB, along with 4 Ks, and of course 6 groundouts to 1 flyout. Cole Devries pitched 1.2 innings giving up a run. Spencer Steedley pitched very well, 2.1 innings 4 ks, no hits, no walks no runs. Santos Arias pitched the ninth and gave up a hit and recorded a K.

Fort Meyers lost 18-3. Ramon Santana picked up where he left off with a double and a homer Nick Romero, Paul Kelly and Chris Herrmann had two hits a piece. The pitching is really the story here. Kyle Gibson struck out 7(!) batters in 3.2 innings, but walked 2, and gave up 6 hits and 3 ER. Looking at this, I actually think it looks pretty solid for a first start. Shooter Hunt came in, walked three and gave up a homer, and hit a batter... He didn't record an out. Ron Mahay is pitching in Hi-A, must be rehab. Hector Arias gave up 7 ER in 1 inning.

 

Don't worry this won't be regular, but it was opening night and I didn't have any other place to write down thoughts
