Here‘s what Joba had to say about his hitless outing yesterday. 

TJ Beam hasn’t pitching a game since May 3rd. Make of it what you will, but it’s funny how no one’s missed him…

Triple-A Scranton (5-2 loss to Columbus)
Kevin Thompson: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 E (fielding)
Chris Basak: 2 for 5, 1 2B, 1 SB
Andy Phillips: 0 for 3, 2 BB
Bronson Sardinha: 0 for 2, 2 BB, 1 E (throwing)
Shelley Duncan: 1 for 2, 1 2B, 2 BB – 18 XBH in 31 games…
Eric Duncan: 0 for too many to count (4 really)
Alberto Gonzalez: 0 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB – OPS is entering dangerous territory (I’m talking sub-.600)
Steven Jackson: 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 3 K, 8-4 GB/FB – only 57 of 107 pitches were strikes (53.3%)
Ben Kozlowski: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Charlie Manning: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Double-A Trenton
First Game (2-1 win over New Britain)
This was the continuation of yesterday’s game that was suspended in the top of the 9th due to rain. Not much happened today, Gerardo Casadiego recorded a K to end the top of the inning, and Matt Carson singled home PJ Pilittere in the bottom of the frame after PJ singled and advanced to second on a Carlos Mendoza walk. See yesterday’s DotF for the stats…
Second Game (5-1 win over New Britain)
Ramiro Pena: 2 for 3, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SB
Noah Hall: 0 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K – 1 for 17 since 3 for 4 game in organizational debut…
Shawn Garrett: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Carlos Mendoza: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 E (fielding)
Justin Christian: 1 for 3, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – last SB was 9 games ago, what gives?
Matt Carson: 4 for 4, 1 R, 2 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI – he’s clearly been the best hitter on the team this year, so why is he still buried in the 8-hole?
Jason Jones: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K – it’s ironic how the guys performing well this year are the Brett Smiths and Jason Jones’ of the organization, not the Ross Ohlendorfs and Steven Jacksons and Tyler Clippards…
Michael Gardner: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

High-A Tampa had a scheduled off day.

Low-A Charleston (12-6 loss to Asheville)
Mitch Hilligoss: 2 for 5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E (fielding)- extends hit streak to minor league leading 20 games…
Austin Jackson: 1 for 4, 1 BB, 1 K
Seth Fortenberry: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 BB – 8 RBI in last 7 games…
Chris Malec: 2 for 3, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HBP, 1 E (fielding)
Brian Baisley: 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K – 9 for his last 14 with 2 homers and 5 RBI…
Jose Gil: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E (pickoff)
Angel Reyes: 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 6 BB, 0 K, 2-8 GB/FB – last 3 outings: 12.1 IP, 15 H, 11 ER, 11 BB, 7 K…
Garrett Patterson: 3 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 1 K, 1 WP – 43 baserunners allowed in 24.1 IP…at least his GB/FB ratio is over 5.50…

Happy Mother’s Day to mine, and all the other moms out there. You make the world go ’round.

    Beam’s been injured. I guess his slipped by everybody because of the Yankee injuries.

    Actually… the beat guy says that Beam was injured on May 3rd. Hughes was put on the DL that same day. So that’s why Beam’s injury wasn’t talked about…

    Thanks for the info Nathan. I should really start checking the beat writer blogs for the affiliates…

    But like I said, I haven’t really missed Beam. They probably should have traded him this offseason while his stock was high.

    Steven Jackson is clearly struggling with a lot of things, namely his control. But he is suffering from a .355 BABIP… where is the excellent control he had last year when we walked 2.71/9 IP. This start bring him up to 3.86 for the season. The strikeouts i expect to go down because of the tougher league, but what’s up with the control?
