Farmers Only: Weekend Review

Only 6 games on the weekend for Reds minor leaguers.

    Castillo
    Walk-off Wilkin
  • On Saturday, Louisville won 3-2 over Scranton/WB behind a (finally) good start from Daryl Thompson.  Thompson pitched 6 innings and gave up 2 runs.  On offense, Norris Hopper, Drew Stubbs, Kevin Barker, and Wilkin Castillo all had two hits.  Sunday's game was a true pitcher's duel, as the Bats won again, 3-0 in 11 inningsRamon Ramirez went 8 innings of shutout ball, and Pedro Viola and Josh Roenicke both pitched more than one inning in relief without giving up a hit.  Viola's ERA is down again, to 0.66 now.  Deadly.  Wilkin Castillo was the hero, with a walk-off 3 run shot in the 11th, and Drew Stubbs was 3-for-4 for the Bats.  Up next: Matt Maloney's next in line, as he takes on Scranton at 7:05.
  • Ramirez
    8 shutout innings, dude
  • Carolina lost an up and down game on Saturday, 7-5.  After Carolina broke the 3-3 tie in the 8th, Mobile came back with two in the top of the 9th with two runs.  El Nino Destructor singled in his pet chupacabra to tie it in the bottom of the 9th, but Ruben Medina gave up two runs in the 10th to lose the game for the Mudcats.  Eric Eymann, who has 6 hits in his last two games, was 3-for-5 to lead Carolina, and Juan Francisco, Zach Cozart, and Sean Henry all had two hits.  Chris Heisey went 0-for-4, but walked in the 9th to extend his on-base streak to "every single game this season".  The Mudcats were off on Sunday.  Up next: Misael DeJesus takes on Birmingham at 8:05.
  • On Saturday, Sarasota won an extra inning game, 7-6 over Jupiter in 12Neftali Soto hit his 3rd homer of the season, and Yonder Alonso, Denis Phipps, and Devin Mesoraco had two hits each to lead the offense.  Jerry Gil started again, and gave up 6 ER in 3 1/3 innings.  It's time to give this little experiment up, Jerry, your 10.36 ERA isn't getting it done.  On the positive side of the pitching perspective, Enerio Del Rosario, Philippe-Alexandre Valiquette, and Ben Davis all pitched at least two innings of scoreless ball for the S-Reds.  Up next: Luis Montano is the probable starter to take on Fort Myers at 7:05.
  • Dayton beat Kane County 7-5, as Kevin Coddington drove in 3 runs for the Dragons.  Curtis Partch had a little bit of trouble, giving up 5 R (3 ER) in 6, but the bullpen was solid to keep the Dragons in the game.  Sunday's game wasn't as lucky for the Dragons, as they got spanked by the Cougars, 18-3Byron Wiley hit his first HR of the season and Frank Pfister had two hits to highlight the Dragons offense.  The pitching was obviously bad.  Forget that ever happened.  Up next: Dayton's off tonight.
