Trenton sweeps into the Eastern League Championship series

By

Damon Sublett is heading to Hawaii Winter Baseball after missing most of the season due to injury.

Triple-A Scranton (6-4 win over Pawtucket) SWB leads the best-of-five series 2-1 … Phil Hughes takes on Bartolo Colon in Game 4 tomorrow
Justin Christian, Juan Miranda, Shelley Duncan & Chris Stewart: all 1 for 4 – J-Chrizzle drew a walk & scored a run … Miranda doubled, drove in a run & K’ed … Shelley K’ed twice … Stewart committed an error on catcher’s interference
Bernie Castro: 0 for 4, 1 K
Juan Miranda: 1 for 4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Ben Broussard: 3 for 3, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Matt Carson: 0 for 3, 2 R, 1 K – playing CF now that Melky’s back up
Eric Duncan: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB – drove in the game winning runs with a 3-R jack … but it came in the 4th inning, so it doesn’t count because it wasn’t late in the game and therefore not clutch, right?
Nick Green: 2 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K
The Ghost of Kei Igawa: 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 10-7 GB/FB – 61 of 103 pitches were strikes (59.2%)
Steven Jackson: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 WP, 1-0 GB/FB
Scott Strickland: 1.1 IP, zeroes, 3 K, 1-0 GB/FB – now that’s how you slam the door in the playoffs

Double-A Trenton (5-4 win over Portland) Trenton wins the best-of-three series 3-0 … it’s the second straight year they knocked Portland out, and the second straight year they’ve been to the finals … Akron currently leads Bowie 2-1 in their series, the winner will face the Thunder in the finals
Reegie Corona & Austin Jackson: both 0 for 4, 1 BB – Ajax K’ed twice
Ramiro Pena: 1 for 4, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB
Chris Malec: 0 for 2, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 HBP
Colin Curtis: 4 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 BB – drove in the game winning run on a bases loaded walk … guess they pitched him carefully after picking up a hit in his first 4 plate appearances
PJ Pilittere: 1 for 4, 1 BB
Frankie Cervelli & Kevin Russo: both 0 for 3, 1 HBP – Cervelli drove in a run … Russo swiped a bag & K’ed twice
Edwar Gonzalez: 2 for 4, 1 CS
Jason Jones: 6 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 HB, 6-11 GB/FB – hasn’t been so great the last month-and-a-half
Kevin Whelan: 2 IP, zeroes, 5 K, 1-0 GB/FB – what did I say yesterday? if you want to make a deep playoff run, someone needs to step up and make an big unexpected contribution
Mike Dunn: 1 IP, zeroes, 2 K, 1-0 GB/FB

High-A Tampa’s season is over, they did not qualify for the playoffs. You can find Florida State League playoff coverage here.

Low-A Charleston’s season is over, they did not qualify for the playoffs. You can find South Atlantic League playoff coverage here.

Short Season Staten Island (17-0 beatdown of Hudson Valley) and to think, they sat their regular 2-3-4 hitters
Addison Maruszack (17): 3 for 6, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI
Taylor Grote: 1 for 4, 4 R, 2 BB – he had scored 4 runs total in his last 10 games

Jahdiel Santamaria: 1 for 4, 3 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Braedyn Pruitt: 2 for 4, 3 R, 1 3B, 3 RBI, 1 BB
Erik Lovett (39): 4 for 5, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 1 K – he had 4 RBI on the year coming into this game
Mitch Abeita (19): 1 for 2, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Roy Gomez: 1 for 5
Kelvin Castro: 0 for 4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Jon Albaladejo: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K, 4-0 GB/FB – it really is a shame he got hurt
Casey Erickson: 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, 1 WP, 1 HB, 4-3 GB/FB
Jacinto Gonell: 1 IP, zeroes
Nick Asselin: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Mike Obradovich: 1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 3-0 GB/FB

    Beating the Red Sox minors teams is just a bonus. :-)

    I’m glad to hear Whelan pitched well. I kinda felt bad for the poor guy when I saw him pitch in person a few weeks ago when he threw four wild pitches in an inning and walked a bunch of people.

  3. A.D. says:

    Jason Jones pitched poorly to end last season too

  4. Why are Jose Reyes ringtones advertised here? My eyes!!!1!!! My eyes!!!1!!!
