Murphy makes his debut as Horne dominates

By

Two Yanks’ minor leaguers were suspended after testing positive for banned substances. I’ve never heard of either kid.

Mike Ashmore says Ian Kennedy is going to join Colin Curtis in the Arizona Fall League. So I guess he is eligible after all.

Triple-A Scranton
Game 1 (4-3 win over Lehigh Valley in 7 innings, walk-off style) makeup of yesterday’s game, which was flooded out … this game was actually played in Lehigh because SWB’s park is still flooded, so Lehigh lost via a walk-off on their own turf … that must be tough
Kevin Russo & Austin Jackson: both 2 for 4 – Russo tripled & scored twice … Jackson drove in the winning run with a walk-off single, swiped a bag, scored a run & K’ed
Colin Curtis & Juan Miranda: both 1 for 3 – Curtis doubled, scored a run & walked … Miranda K’ed
Shelley Duncan: 1 for 2, 1 R, 2 RBI
Yurendell DeCaster: 2 for 3, 1 RBI, 1 K
John Rodriguez & Reegie Corona: both 0 for 3 – Corona K’ed
Chris Stewart: 0 for 2, 1 BB, 1 K
Ivan Nova: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 6-5 GB/FB – 52 of 76 pitches were strikes (68.4%) … nice outing after he’d been struggling
Jon Albaladejo: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 3-0 GB/FB – 6 of 11 pitches were strikes (54.5%) … he actually blew the save in the top of the 7th, but walked away with a win

The box score for Game 2 is taking for-freakin-ever to update, and I don’t really feel like waiting around. There’s really not much to see; Igawa got rocked, Melancon did too. That’s about it.

Double-A Trenton (2-0 loss to Erie)
Austin Krum & Edwar Gonzalez: both 0 for 4 – Krum K’ed twice & threw a runner out at home from CF
Matt Cusick: 1 for 4
Eduardo Nunez: 2 for 3, 1 BB
Chris Malec, Francisco Santana, Marcos Vechionacci, RJ Baker & Justin Snyder: all 0 for 3 – Malec, Santana & Snyder each K’ed once, Vech & Baker twice
Ryan Pope: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 1 HB, 6-4 GB/FB - 23-4 K/BB ratio in his last 19 IP
Josh Schmidt: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 3-1 GB/FB – the walk was intentional
Jose Valdez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2-0 GB/FB

High-A Tampa (4-3 win over Lakeland, walk-off style)
Dan Brewer, Damon Sublett, Kevin Smith & Luis Nunez: all 2 for 4 – Brewer walked, stole a base, scored a run & K’ed … Sublett was hit by a pitch, drove in a run, swiped a bag, scored twice & K’ed … Smith walked * K’ed twice … Nunez drew a walk, drove in two, K’ed & committed a fielding error
David Adams, Austin Romine & Walt Ibarra: all 0 for 4 – Adams walked, scored a run & K’ed twice … Romine walked … Ibarra K’ed
Brandon Laird: 1 for 4, 1 HBP
Jack Rye: 1 for 3, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K – bases loaded walk-off walk
Jason Stephens: 6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 11-4 GB/FB
Pat Venditte: 1.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 0-2 GB/FB – first run allowed since July 26th
Jon Hovis: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 3-0 GB/FB

Low-A Charleston‘s game was suspended due to rain at the end of the fourth inning. They’re going to finish this one up tomorrow, so I’ll update the stats then. Here’s the box score anyway. It’s worth noting that they faced this year’s 7th overall pick, who was mading his pro debut.

Short Season Staten Island (7-2 loss to Tri-City)
Jimmy Paredes & Hector Rabago: both 1 for 4 – Paredes drew a walk … Rabago committed a fielding error
Zoilo Almonte: 3 for 5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K
Neil Medchill: 0 for 5, 3 K – 1 for his last 16 (.063)
Luke Murton & Kyle Higashioka: both 1 for 3, 1 BB – Murton scored a run … Higashioka drove in a run & committed a throwing error
DeAngelo Mack: 0 for 3, 1 BB – threw a runner out at third from RF
Kelvin Castro: 2 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K
Carmen Angelini: 0 for 4, 1 K, 2 E (fielding)
Kelvin Perez: 4 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 2-6 GB/FB – Robert Pimpsner says he threw 80 pitches, 49 for strikes (61.3%)
Ronny Marte: 3 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 6-0 GB/FB – 29 of 46 pitches were strikes (63%)
Paul Patterson: 2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 1 HB, 1-4 GB/FB- 19 of 36 pitches were strikes (52.8%)

Rookie GCL Yanks (5-0 win over GCL Pirates)
Eduardo Sosa, Jose Toussen, Ramon Flores & Mitch Delaney: all 1 for 4 – Sosa doubled & scored a run … Toussen stole a bag & scored a run … Flores scored a run … Delaney doubled
JR Murphy: 1 for 3, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – he DH’ed … fine debut for the kid with $1.25M burning a hole in his pocket
Kelvin DeLeon, Jose Mojica & Jhorge Liccien: all 0 for 4 – DeLeon K’ed & committed a fielding error … Liccien K’ed
Issac Harrow: 2 for 4, 1 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K
Danny Gil: 2 IP, zeroes, 2 K, 4-0 GB/FB
Alan Horne: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 5-8 GB/FB – I’d call that an encouraging outing

    One aspect of Jackson’s game that never gets mentioned is his baserunning — he’s stolen 21 (or 22, unsure if b-ref has updated to include tonight) bases this year, and only been caught 4 times.

  2. Brandon says:

    Haha. Those banned substances did not work for those 2 DSL kids. Not at all.

  3. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    I’ve never heard of either kid.

    Neither one of them are Facebook friends of mine. The only Facebook friend of mine on the juice is Pawlikowski.

  4. DreDog says:

    No Slade? I want my money back!

  5. JMK says:

    So many kids in our farm are talented but inconsistent. That’s why it’s nice to see this virtually every day:

    Carmen Angelini: 0 for 4, 1 K, 2 E (fielding)

  6. RalphieD says:

    guesses on who will join kennedy and curtis (why him)…?

  7. Tom Zig says:

    is it pronounced Horn or Horn-e

  8. DontChaKnow says:

    What will Sterling’s Call for Jesus be when he comes up? I just miss seeing his name in the DOTF, so I figured I bring him up.

  9. Tom Zig says:

    What do you guys think Murphy spent that cool million on?

  10. Dave Luch says:

    Igawa should be tested for performance decreasing drugs.

  11. Jake H says:

    Jackson had a good day. 4 hits will do that.

  12. Jersey says:

    I just realized that Ajax is from the same hometown as one of my favorite TX punk bands. Small world.

  13. A.D. says:

    Excellent JR Murphy isn’t a bust
