Trenton can’t wrap up EL Championship

Game 147: A word on the rivalry
Wow

Double-A Trenton (8-2 loss to Akron)
Reegie Corona & Gabe Lopez: both 0 for 3 – Corona walked
Austin Jackson: 0 for 4, 3 K – not easy to win when your top 2 hitters get on base only once all game
Colin Curtis, Cody Ehlers, PJ Pilittere & Marcos Vechionacci: all 1 for 4 – Ehlers K’ed & drove in a run…PJ also drove one in…Vech GIDP’ed to end the game
Noah Hall: 1 for 2, 1 R, 2 BB
Matt Carson: 2 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K, 1 E (throwing)
Alan Horne: 3 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 2-6 GB/FB, 1 E (pickoff) – not easy when your SP gives up a 4 spot in the 1st inning…I’m sure this isn’t what he had in mind for his last start of the year
David Robertson: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K – this probably finishes him for the series, and season
Jason Jones: 1 IP, zeroes, 1 K
Kevin Whelan: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K – ditto Robertson’s comment, but he’s going to the AzFL

Trenton still leads the best-of-five series 2-1, and is sending out Danny McCutchen in Game 4. He’ll be opposed by former first round pick/Long Island Duck Bobby Brownlie. If necessary, Jeff Marquez is slated to go in Game 5, and Akron will likely bring Adam Miller back on regular rest.

After the jump is a great shot of Colin Curtis jumping into Matt Carson’s arms after scoring the winning run on Noah Hall’s walk-off single in Game 2. Great, great stuff. Be sure to check out the catcher’s reaction in the background.

    great photo…

    and I was arguing for Horne to be promoted for like 2 months, boy was i wrong— guess that’s why I dont work in the front office… once upon a time this year Horne was lights out, I hope the last few weeks is just from his arm being tired

    Do Action Jackson & Tabata start at Double A next year?

    great article in pinstripe plus about Abe almonte moving to centerfield and how his numbers jumped after that

    now I’m going to watch the top of the 8th again

    He should have been promoted a long time ago: The talent level in AA isnt a whole lot different than AAA (guys make quick transitions a lot of the time). The last number of starts he was definitely tired, peripherals don’t suddenly suffer due to declining skill or something like that. Everyone else who was even close Horne’s numbers at AA was promoted much earlier in the season.

    EJ discussed Austin Jackson yesterday for all those interested…
