Friday

Louisville Bats 8, Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 6

Narciso Crook: 3-4 (3B, HR), 1 RBI, 1 BB
Aristides Aquino: 2-5 (HR)
Alex Blandino: 1-4 (HR), 1 BB, 2 R

Vladimir Gutierrez: 6.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Eric Stout: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
Justin Grimm: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
RJ Alaniz: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Narciso “I Am Not A Crook” had himself a night, belting a triple and a dong. Aquino hit his 23rd of the season, and also Alex Blandino hit another dinger. Chadwick “Chadterrell” Tromp smacked a pinch hit home run, as well. Meanwhile, the Bats got a somewhat rare quality start from Vlad “The Impaler” Gutierrez.

Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 15, Chattanooga Lookouts 3

Mitch Nay: 2-3 (2B), 1 BB, 1 R
Stu Fairchild: 1-4, 1 R, 1 RBI
Tyler Stephenson: 1-3, 1 R, 1 BB

Tony Santillan: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
Wyatt Strahan: 0.0 IP, 6 H, 6 ER
Tyler Jay: 1.0 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 K
Cory Thompson: 2.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Bryant Flete: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 2 ER

Mitch “Yay or” Nay collected two more hits, but the Nooga offense was relatively quiet. Tony Santillan had not such a great outing, and now his ERA is above five for the season. Wyatt “Earp” Strahan melted down in a bad way which opened this game wide open.

Daytona Tortugas 4, Lakeland Flying Tigers 2

Michael Beltre: 4-5 (1 2B), 1 R, 1 RBI
Jose Garcia: 2-4 (1 2B), 1 R, 1 RBI
Jonathan India: 2-5, 1 R

Jared Solomon: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 K
John Ghyzel: 3.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Aneurys Zabala: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Dauri Moreta: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Andy Cox: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 K

Michael Beltre was just sent down to Daytona earlier in the week, but he jumped all over A+ pitching, with four hits. Jonathan “BaseBollywood” India got two hits, but he spent his time at DH, probably because he was a little banged up in a game last week.

Dayton Dragons 7, Quad Cities River Bandits 1

Randy Ventura: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI
Cameron Warren: 2-2, 2 R, 2 BB
Miguel Hernandez: 1-4 (1 HR), 3 RBI, 1 R
Jay Schuyler: 2-4, 1 RBI

Adrian Rodriguez: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER (1 R), 1 BB, 5 K
Jerry D’Andrea: 4.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

The pitching is the story for Dayton in this one, as neither Adrian Rodriguez and Jerry D’Andrea combined to allow only two hits and one earned run, striking out eight River Bandits along the way.

Billings Mustangs 4, Idaho Falls Chukars 0

Eric Yang: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI
Matt Lloyd: 2-3 (1 2B), 1 RBI, 1 BB

Miguel Medrano: 5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K
Ian Koch: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Frainger Aranguren: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Jake Stevenson: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Only three hits for the Chukars, with no runs. Eric “Christina” Yang hit twice and scored a run, and the catcher from UC Santa Barbara had a .977 OPS through this one.

Greenville Reds 4, Elizabethtown Twins 2

Ivan Johnson: 2-4, 2 R, 1 RBI
AJ Bumpass: 1-3 (1 HR), 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB

Tyler Garbee: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K
Patrick Raby: 3.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Matt Gill: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

I don’t think a guy named “Bumpass” needs a nickname... Ivan “Pudge” Johnson got a couple of his, which is good, because some of these higher round draft picks are hitting like butt right now. Greeneville pitchers whiffed 14 Twins, which is pretty cool.

DSL Reds 8, DSL Orioles1 4

AZL White Sox 13, AZL Reds 6

Saturday

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 5, Louisville Bats 4

Nick Longhi: 2-4, 1 RBI
Scott Schebler: 1-4 (1 HR), 1 R, 1 RBI
Blake Trahan: 1-3 (1 HR), 1 R, 2 RBI
Aristides Aquino: 0-2, 2 BB

Tejay Antone: 3.0 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Joe Mantiply: 3.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 K
Alex Powers: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

“Remember Me?” Scott Schebler hit a dinger! So did Blake Trahan. Aristides “Heiress Titties” Aquino didn’t hit a dinger or anything, but he did walk twice, which seems significant.

Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 4, Chattanooga Lookouts 3

Alfredo Rodriguez: 1-4 (1 2B), 1 R
Mitch Nay: 1-4 (1 HR), 1 R, 2 RBI

Ryan Lillie: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Juan Martinez: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Johendi Jiminian: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER
Ty Boyles: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Mitch Nay makes hay again. He’s played really, really well this season. There’s a particular Reds fan twitter account out there that REALLY loves Alfredo “Sauce Rod” Rodriguez, and says we don’t talk about him enough. Here he is.

Daytona Tortugas 4, Lakeland Flying Tigers 1 (F/7)

Alejo Lopez: 2-3
Michael Beltre: 1-3 (1 HR), 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 BB
Jonathan India 1-3, 1 R, 1 BB

Wendolyn Bautista: 7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K

Daytona had to finish Friday’s game on Saturday, so their scheduled game Saturday was only a seven inning affair. Beltre had another good day, while Wendolyn “Gwendolyn” Bautista cruised through the Tigers batters for a complete game three hitter.

Dayton Dragons 1, Kane County Cougars 0

Mike Siani: 2-4,
Cameron Warren: 1-4 (1 HR), 1 R, 1 RBI

Andy Fisher: 5.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K
Connor Curlis: 4.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

This was a barn-burner. The pitching was obviously incredible, and Cam “Wam Bam” Warren had another solid day, blasting a dinger.

Idaho Falls Chukars 8, Billings Mustangs 5

Victor Ruiz: 2-4, 1 RBI
Edwin Yon: 1-4 (1 2B), 1 R
Reyny Reyes: 1-4 (1 3B), 1 R, 1 RBI

Orlando Rodriguez: 5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 ER (4 R), 0 BB, 7 K
Alberto Gonzalez: 0.0 IP, 1 H, 4 ER, 1 BB (3 HBP)
Johnnie Schneider: 2.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Ryan Dunne: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

“Wild Thing” Alberto Gonzalez had quite the day. He allowed only one hit and one walk, but also beaned three guys, which led to four earned runs. Yikes. Reyny Reyes is a helluva name.

Greeneville Reds 9, Princeton Rays 2

Ivan Johnson: 2-4 (1 3B), 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 BB
AJ Bumpass: 3-5 (1 2B), 2 R, 1 RBI
Tyler Callihan: 2-4 (1 HR), 1 R, 4 RBI

Jose Salvador: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
Jake Gilbert: 4.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

The Baby Reds did some work on offense in this one, including Tyler “The Creator” Callihan’s dinger, the second of his young professional career. The Greeneville pitchers were really good again, striking out 12 Rays.

DSL Reds 8, DSL Orioles1 2

Sunday

Louisville Bats 7, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 4

Stuart Turner: Dinger
Narciso Crook: Dong
Blake Trahan: Tater
Aristides Aquino: Homer
Scott Schebler: Bomb

Keury Mella: 6.0 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
Jackson Stephens: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Brad Markey: 2.0 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

So, the Bats mashed quite a few taters in this one, including Stuart “Little” Turner’s first of the year, and both Trahan and Schebler hitting homers in back to back days. The pitching was fine, though Brad “Biz” Markey gave up two runs in the ninth.

Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp 10, Chattanooga Lookouts 5

Taylor Trammell: 3-4 (1 2B, 1 3B), 1 R, 1 BB
Gavin LaValley: 2-4 (1 HR, 1 2B), 2 R, 2 RBI
Mitch Nay: 1-4, 2 RBI

Reiver Sanmartin: 4.1 IP, 7 H, 8 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
Ryan Nutof: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Tyler Jay: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Jacob Stallings: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Hey, Taylor Trammell did some hitting today! That’s good news. His OPS starts with a 6. That’s bad news. The Lookouts have dropped 14 straight games. Yikes.

Lakeland Flying Tigers 8, Daytona Tortugas 6

Lorenzo Cedrola: 3-4, 3 R, 1 BB
Michael Beltre: 2-5, 1 R,
Andy Sugilio: 2-5 (1 2B), 1 RBI
Drew Mount: 2-4, 2 RBI

Aaron Fossas: 5.1 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Michael Byrne: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Julio Pinto: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Diomar Lopez: 1.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER (3 R), 0 BB, 0 K

Beltre kept hitting, and the Tugas wracked up 13 hits, but only one of those was anything more than a single. Diomar “George” Lopez blew it in the 8th, allowing three runs to the Tigers.

Kane County Cougars 8, Dayton Dragons 5

Mike Siani: 2-3, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Jay Schuyler: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI
Miguel Hernandez: 1-4 (1 2B), 1 R, 1 RBI

Eduardo Salazar: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER (5 R), 2 BB, 4 K
Clate Schmidt: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
Carlos Machorro: 3.0 IP, 2 H 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

So, Mike Siani hasn’t really hit for any power this year. However, since June 1st, he is batting 316/.373/.374 as a 19 year old in A ball, so that’s pretty okay. I assume he’s still playing a dazzling CF, so I think this is coming along okay.

Idaho Falls Chukars 4, Billings Mustangs 3 (F/10)

Nate Scantlin: 2-5, 1 R
Matt Lloyd: 1-4 (1 2B)
Cash Case: 1-2, 2 BB

Justin McGregor: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Andrew McDonald: 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Francis Peguero: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Frainger Aranguren: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K

Frainger Aranguren got small balled in the 10th with the automatic runner on 2nd. He allowed a sac bunt and a sac fly that got the deciding run in. That was really the most interesting thing in this one.
