Sanchez mashes, Mitchell mashed in Low-A lossBy
Got some notes to pass along…
- RHP Mark Montgomery, OF Rob Segedin, and C J.R. Murphy will represent the Tampa Yankees in the High-A All-Star Game. The Murphy selection is quite sketchy, but they tend to lean towards prospects with these things anyway. Montgomery and Segedin are well-deserving.
- OF Tyler Austin ranked ninth in this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. His .545/.667/.818 performance last week was probably like, his fourth best week of the season.
- 2B Corban Joseph has been promoted from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Empire State. This was long overdue, he’s been suiting up for the Thunder since the middle of 2010. Cole Garner was placed on the DL with a hand injury in a corresponding move.
Triple-A Empire State Game One (4-3 loss to Norfolk in seven innings, walk-off style) makeup of an April 21st rain out
CF Kevin Russo: 1-4, 1 R
2B Corban Joseph: 1-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB — celebrated his promotion to Triple-A by homering in his first plate appearances
1B Steve Pearce: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 K
DH Jack Cust: 0-4, 1 K
LF Ronnie Mustelier: 2-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 HBP — first multi-hit game of his seven-game hit streak
C Frankie Cervelli & 3B Brandon Laird: both 0-3 – Laird struck out twice
RF Colin Curtis & SS Ramiro Pena: both 2-3 — Pena drove in a run and got picked off first
RHP Ramon Ortiz: 6 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 9/3 GB/FB — 55 of 85 pitches were strikes (64.7%) … worst start in about three weeks
RHP Manny Delcarmen: 0.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K — 12 of his 22 pitches were strikes (54.5%)
Low-A Charleston (13-3 loss to Greenville) no Mason Williams again, he hasn’t played since getting hit by a pitch on Wednesday
2B Angelo Gumbs, C Francisco Arcia & CF Ali Castillo: all 0-4 — Arcia struck out twice, Castillo thrice … Arcia also allowed a passed ball
SS Cito Culver: 1-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K
3B Dante Bichette Jr.: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K
RF Tyler Austin: 0-3, 1 R, 1 BB — he’s drawn a walk in seven straight now and is probably starting to get the Bonds treatment, no one’s throwing anything close to the zone when he’s up

RHP John Brebbia: 1.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1/0 GB/FB
Triple-A Empire State Game Two was postponed due to rain. They already have a doubleheader scheduled for Sunday, so if they make this one up tomorrow it’ll be four games in 48 hours.
Double-A Trenton‘s games was suspended due to rain in the middle of the eighth inning. I assume they’re going to finish it off tomorrow. Here’s the box score, I’ll update the stats then.
High-A Tampa was rained out. They’re going to play a doubleheader tomorrow.
