Wang takes the loss in second Triple-A start

By

OF Thomas Neal has been placed on the DL after leaving last night’s game with a hamstring issue according to John Sadak. Neal was a candidate to replace Ben Francisco as the right-handed bench bat, but I don’t think a move was imminent. UTIL Kevin Mahoney has been bumped from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton to fill the roster spot.

Triple-A Scranton (4-1 loss to Columbus)

Low-A Charleston (7-0 loss to West Virginia)

  • CF Jake Cave: 1-4, 1 HBP
  • SS Cito Culver: 2-4, 2 K — five hits in his last 12 at-bats (.417)
  • DH Greg Bird: 1-4, 1 HBP
  • 3B Dante Bichette Jr.: 0-4, 1 K
  • LHP Daniel Camarena: 5 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 1 Balk, 4/5 GB/FB — 55 of 74 pitches were strikes (74%) … has allowed at least five earned runs in three of his four starts

Both Double-A Trenton and High-A Tampa had scheduled off-days.

    A tad ironic how the first loss of Wang’s second stint with us is against the Clippers.

  • Barry

    Bout time Romine, slacker..

    • Tim

      His first XBH correct?

  • Coolerking101

    Adams wants back on the 40 man. Would love to see what he can do in the bigs.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

      I’d like to see it as well.
      I think he may not be eligible until May 15, though.

    Camarena gave up 6 hits and 7 runs with – BB. That’s pretty interesting. Grand Slam and 2 solo shots? I guess he balked home a run at some point?

      He did balk in a run, but the rest was wack.

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

      He gave up only one HR, and it was a solo shot.
      Other runs were a 2-run error, a 2-run triple, sac fly, and balk.
