Deja Vu all over again for Trenton

By

Forgot to mention this last night, but Chris Basak was claimed off waivers by the Twins. Basak, as you may remember, was DFA’ed to make room on the 40-man roster for 1st rounder Andrew Brackman. So long Chris, thanks for that lone big league AB where you stood on second thinking you hit a double, but in reality you were out.

Triple-A Scranton (2-1 loss to Rochester in 10)
Brett Gardner: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 CS – gunned Lew Ford down at the plate
Eric Duncan: 0 for 5, 1 BB, 1 K
Alberto Gonzalez: 1 for 5, 1 2B – 5 doubles, 1 triple & 1 homer in last 8 games
Jose Cruz Jr.: 0 for 5 – yes, it’s that Jose Cruz Jr….when did they pick him up, who knows
Bronson Sardinha & Andy Cannizaro: both 1 for 3
Kevin Thompson: 1 for 1, 3 BB
Ian Patrick Kennedy: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 1 HBP, 1-11 GB/FB – another dominant outing, but that GB/FB ratio is kinda ugly
Ross Ohlendorf: 2 IP, bunch of zeroes, 1 K – nails
Jim Brower: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Double-A Trenton (1-0 win over Connecticut) second 1-0 win over Connecticut in as many days…second 1-0 win over Connecticut in as many days in which the only run came on a Matt Carson homer…second 1-0 win over Connecticut in as many days in which the only run came on a Matt Carson homer & the starter dominated for 7 innings
Reegie Corona: 0 for 5, 4 K – 15 K in his last 10 games
Noah Hall: 2 for 5, 1 K
Jamal Strong & Juan Miranda: both 1 for 4 – Miranda K’ed twice
Matt Carson: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – two nights in a row…what are the odds?…oh, and he gunned a runner down at the plate to preserve the lead
PJ Pilittere & Gabe Lopez: both 1 for 3, 1 BB – Lopez K’ed
Jeff Marquez: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 12-4 GB/FB – this is exactly the kind of start I’ve been waiting to see from him
Steven Jackson: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – 3rd straight hitless outing

High-A Tampa (5-4 loss to Dunedin in 10, walk-off style)
Eduardo Nunez: 2 for 5, 1 RBI, 1 K
Tim Battle: 1 for 5, 1 2B, 3 K, 1 SB - and with that, he’s now at 137 K on the year (117 games)
Austin Jackson: 0 for 4, 1 R, 4 K – and with that, he’s now at 100 K on the year (115 games)
Edwar Gonzalez: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K
Kevin Russo: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B
Anthony Claggett: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K – first ER allowed since July 22nd
Josh Schmidt: 1.1 IP, bunch of zeroes, 3 K – 85 K in only 59.2 IP

Low-A Charleston (5-4 loss to Augusta) all 4 runs came in the 9th, so they made it interesting
Hit Streak Hilligoss: 1 for 5 – multi-hit game streak ends at 6, but the the regular old hit streak is now at 11…grounded out to end the game with the tying run at 3rd
Kyle Anson & Josue Calzado: both 1 for 4 – Anson K’ed…Calzado scored a run
Seth Fortenberry: 0 for 2, 1 R, 2 BB, 2 K
Joe Muich, Chase Odenreider & Luis Nunez: all 2 for 4 – Muich scored a run & K’ed twice…Odenreider scored a run, drove in 2 & K’ed…Nunez tripled, drove in 2 & K’ed
Mike Dunn: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 1 WP – having a breakout year…but you knew that already
Jesse Hoover: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Short Season Staten Island (12-3 beatdown of Brooklyn)
Justin Snyder: 0 for 2, 3 R, 1 RBI, 3 BB, 1 HBP, 1 E (throwing) - I’ve been trying to figure out who this guy’s game reminds me of for quite some time now, and I finally figured it out, it’s the player Red Sox fans think this guy is…key word being “think”
Taylor Holiday: 2 for 5, 2 R, 2 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
Damon Sublett: 3 for 5, 2 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI – 7 for his last 15 with 2 doubles, a triple, 5 RBI, 4 BB, 0 K

Matt Morris: 2 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Jose Gil: 1 for 4, 2 RBI – 5 RBI in his last 3 games after 0 steaks in his previous 5 contests
Zach McAllister: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 6-3 GB/FB
Jonathan Ortiz: 1 IP, bunch of zeroes, 2 K – 16.1 IP, 13 baserunners, 24 K, 3.17 GB/FB…another year, another dominant closer for SI

Rookie GCL Yanks (11-2 win over GCL Tigers) lit up Zumaya for 5 runs…Rich Zumaya that is
Abe Almonte: 0 for 1, 1 R, 2 BB, 1 SB, 1 CS - left in the bottom of the 5th, may have injured himself while stealing a base…not 100% sure though
Gerson Manzanillo: 2 for 4, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
Zoilo Almonte: 2 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 1 E (throwing)

    Poor Chris Basak… at least he got someone to carry his bags around for him for a couple of weeks while Joe Torre consistently passed over him for Miggy Cairo on every occasion.

    Also, not sure what you mean about Dusty Pedroia- who wouldn’t take .324/.395/.449 and 5 of 5 on the bases from their 24 year old second baseman? In terms of RC/27, Pedroia is ahead of Cano, who is .309/.356/.491, and a year older… it may be that Pedroia is closer to David Eckstein than Ryne Sandberg, but right now he’s among the top 2B in the league.

    yea, that’s great- I’m still taking Cano, who will bat 3rd someday, over dustin

  3. C-Note says:

    and tonight we get the Eric Duncan we all know…

    the air was cool here in PA today, I went to the cinemark, right above the stadium and watched him for an inning or two, the cool thin air, esp. cuz the stadium is at a good elevation, could of added to the flyball ratio. It was probably between 60-65 when the game started and got down to 54 near the end of the game.

  5. felixpanther says:

    is this Brandon Laird a prospect? extremely good number

  6. Matt Carson also nailed the tying runner at home on a BB from right. The throw beat the runner by a good 4-5 steps.

  7. Jake T says:

    I’m not sure i like 73 hits in 59.2 innings for ohlendorf. He has to start turning in outings like this as opposed to his AUG 14 line of 2 inn 3 hits and 2 er if he wants to deserve the september call up that poeple like Gammons seem to think he deserves

  8. [...] Two years ago today on DotF, Matt Carson homered for the second consecutive day to give Double-A Trenton it’s second consecutive 1-0 win. [...]
