Triple-A: Indianapolis Indians 4, Rochester Red Wings 1
1B Byung Ho Park went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in the second inning, but that’s about all that went right for the Red Wings yesterday.
Well, I suppose RP Alex Wimmers threw two perfect innings and struck out four, that’s good too. But SP Nik Turley, who started the game for the Red Wings, was not good, giving up all four Indians runs and getting pulled after 4.1 innings. He only struck out three this time, too.
Double-A: Chattanooga Lookouts off
Scheduled off day.
[No Box Score]
High-A: Tampa Yankees 7, Ft. Myers Miracle 3
Welp, the Miracle’s poor defensive lost this one. Errors by SS Jermaine Palacios, SP Lewis Thorpe, and 1B Zander Wiel led to four unearned runs, which if you look at the score you can see was the different maker here.
Even not counting the unearned runs, Thorpe was shaky, giving up three earned runs on four hits and three walks. He also threw two wild pitches and balked, and was pulled after just 3.2 innings.
At least young LF Brent Rooker had a good game, going 1-for-2 with a double and two walks. And Doug Mientkiewicz didn’t get ejected for the fourth time in five games.
Low-A: Lansing Lugnuts 3, Cedar Rapids Kernels 1
More unearned runs in this one. The Lugnuts jumped out to an early lead, scoring three in the bottom of the 1st inning. It was really ugly inning, that included a hit by pitch, an RBI bunt, and an error by 3B Caleb Hamilton that accounted for two of the runs.
Luckily, SP Anthony Marzi was able to regain himself and ended up pitching a full 7 innings, giving up only the one earned run on six hits and zero walks. He has a 1.35 ERA over 26.2 innings this year in Low-A.
Rookie League: Elizabethton Twins 15, Pulaski Yankees 4
A couple big innings turned this game into an absolute drubbing of the baby Yankees, including a six run 5th inning and a eight run 9th inning. Although most of the runs came on singles, DH Jose Miranda, 1B J.J. Robinson, and LF T.J. Dixon did all hit dingers.
Miranda was actually the most impressive batter in the game, going 4-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored. He’s hitting .337 in rookie league so far this year.
