Down on the Farm

By

I checked on the scores earlier this afternoon, and when I looked at the continuation of yesterday’s Tampa Yanks suspended game, the box score said Christian Garcia was pitching for Tampa. Garcia, as you may recall, is out for the year with elbow surgery. I hit refresh, and the box score was corrected to show that Wilkins Arias was pitching. Talk about getting your hopes up…

Triple-A Scranton (6-3 win over Columbus)
Andy Phillips: 2 for 4, 2 R
Eric Duncan: 0 for 4 – 0 for last 11…at least (I’m too lazy the check the game log of the last game in which he actually got a hit, so that could be as much as 0 for 13)
Shelley Duncan: 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI – .330-.398-.689-1.088, stick Matsui in RF, bench Bobby, and let Shelley play LF
Bronson Sardinha: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 K
Omir Santos: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 K
Tyler Clippard: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K – 56 baserunners allowed in 38.2 IP, and lefties are giving him some trouble
Chris Britton: 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – bumped from the closer’s role…
Everyday Ronnie: .2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K – 5 of 7 pitches were strikes, only 3 days until he can opt out…
Jim Brower: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 5-0 GB/FB

Double-A Trenton‘s game with New Britain was suspended due to rain with 2 outs in the top of the 9th with the score tied 1-1. I’m guessing they’ll pick it up tomorrow. Here’s what the guys did up to that point:
Jamal Strong: 2 for 3, 1 K
PJ Pilittere: 2 for 3
Matt Carson: 2 for 3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K
rest of lineup: 1 for 19, 1 BB, 6 K – Juan Francia picked up a RBI with a sac fly… 
Alan Horne: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 9-1 GB/FB, 1 E (throwing) - 11.05 Kper9, 1.77 BBper9, 5.56 K/BB…the best pitching prospects in the game put up numbers like that, and Horne is on his way to becoming one this year…
Jef Kennard: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

High-A Tampa
First game
(10-7 loss to St. Lucie in 13 innings) this is the continuation of yesterday’s suspended game, so those stats include anything I cited yesterday
Reegie Corona: 2 for 7, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 E (throwing)
Tim Battle: 3 for 7, 2 2B, 2 K
Jose Tabata: 2 for 6, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Juan Miranda: 2 for 7, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K
Edwar Ramirez: 2 for 6, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Grant Plumley: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Frankie Cervelli: 0 for 4, 2 BB, 1 HBP
Chris Garcia Wilkins Arias: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Anthony Claggett: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – another disappointing guy from the Sheff deal…
Mike Martinez: 4 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 9-3 GB/FB
Second Game (5-1 win over St Lucie in 7 innings)
Reegie Corona: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 E (fielding)
Tim Battle: 2 for 4, 1 2B, 1 K, 1 CS
Jose Tabata: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 HBP – 11 for last 28
Juan Miranda: 1 for 2, 1 BB – multi-hit games in 6 of his last 10, just not this one though…
Kevin Russo: 2 for 3, 1 2B, 1 RBI
James Cooper: 2 for 3, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Joba Chamberlain: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 6 K – issued his first walk since October 25, 2006 (57-7 career K/BB ratio)
Jose Valdez: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Low-A Charleston (11-8 loss to Asheville)
Mitch Hilligoss: 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 E (fielding) – 19 game hit streak and counting…
Austin Jackson: 1 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 K – 13 for last 38
Seth Fortenberry: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Brian Baisley: 4 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Josue Calzado: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 2B – doubles in 5 of his last 7 games…
Kyle Anson: 1 for 5, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K
Edgar Soto: 4 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 3 WP, 6-3 GB/FB
Nick Peterson: 2 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 Balk
Jon Hovis: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K – I bought a Jon Hovis shirt today, why don’t you?

    Tabs is back over .300, nice. And it’s good to see Joba and Horne continue their dominant pitching.
