Minor League Recaps: 8/1

Columbus 2, Richmond 3

  • B. Lillibridge 3-4 2 2B, BB
  • B. Canizares 2-5 2B, RBI, BB
  • J. Reyes 6IP 4H 2R 1BB 5K

JoJo Reyes continues to dominate AAA hitters which is really frustrating for me, but right now I don't care. What I do care about is that Brent Lillibridge had another 3 hit game tonight and tacked on 2 more XBH. Good lord he has been good lately.

Mississippi 2, Huntsville 1

  • R. Gorecki 1-4 HR(10), 2 RBI
  • C. Sencion 5IP 2H 1R 7BB 5K
  • S. Marek 1IP 1H 0R 0B 0K

Reid Gorecki hit a 2 run homer in the 4th to give the Braves pitching staff all it needed. Snecion did his best not to walk every batter he faced. I still like him better as a starter and while he does walk a few guys, 7 seems like a bit of a blip on the radar. Stephen Marek made his second scoreless appearance for the Mississippi team.

Lynchburg 10, Myrtle Beach 11

  • G. Hernandez 2-5 2B, HR(5), K, SB(12)
  • W. Cabrera 2-4 HR(14)
  • E. Campbell 1-2 3 BB

This game was a completion of the the game that was rained out from yesterday. Everyone in the game had a hit except for Light Hittin' Phil Britton (sorry its late).

Lynchburg 0, Myrtle Beach 1

  • E. Campbell 2-3 HR(14), K
  • S. Diamond 5IP 2H 0R 5BB 6K

A couple guys giving up their share of walks today but keeping the opposing offense under wraps anyway. Eric Campbell has a .265 AVG at this point and has a 31/36 BB/K ratio. Still a prospect?

Greenville 6, Rome 7

  • C. Lundahl 3-5 2B, RBI
  • J. Heyward 2-4 2B, K
  • M. Kennelly 3-4 2B, 2 RBI
  • C. Johnson 2-4 2B, 2 RBI, K

Well at least Jason Heyward is getting some XBH again. He has 4 in his last 10 games. He still hasn't regained his power stroke and he is only hitting .216 in his last 10. He might be pressing again. Recently promoted Aussie catcher Matt Kennelly had a good game and is hitting close to .500 in his short time in Rome. He's only 19 years old so he could be someone to keep an eye on. Though he hasn't hit well in rookie ball in the past. Jeff Locke got roughed up a bit too.

Pulaski 2, Danville 21

  • S. Moody 2-5 3 RBI, K
  • G. Rodriguez 2-5 2 2B, 4 RBI
  • J. Gilmore 4-5 3 RBI, BB
  • L.V. Ware 4-6 K
  • S. Kent 2IP 0H 0R 0BB 4K

WOW. 21 runs huh? One pitcher for Pulaski gave up 9 hits and 8 runs and only got one out. The amazing thing here is that Danville only had 4 doubles and everything else was a single. Every starter had at least one hit, 8 of them had at least 2 hits, and 3 had 4 hits. And to me the most interesting thing was Steven Kent having another good outing. His last 4 appearances: 7.1IP 2H 0R 0BB 7K.

Phillies 10, Braves 0
