Minor League Scorebook

2007-04-24: Tacoma 12, Salt Lake 11 #
Gorneault: 0-1
Murphy: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 K
Wood: 1-4, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K
Eylward: 2-5, 1 RBI, 1 K
Mathis: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 K
Evans: 2-5, 1 2B, 2 RBI
Brown: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 1 BB
Rouwenhorst: 3.0 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 8 H, 1 K, 2 BB, 1 HR, 7.11 ERA
Resop: (L, 0-1) (in relief), 2.1 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 H, 3 K, 1 BB, 1 HR, 9.26 ERA
Bulger: 1.2 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 3.86 ERA
Brandon Wood had one hit but he made it count, a bases-clearing triple in the bottom of the fourth that capped a five-run inning. But Salt Lake's pitching wasn't up to the task of keeping down Wladimir Balentien, who extended his 17-game hitting streak with a two-run homer in the first inning; Balentien went 4-5 with five RBIs. Chris Resop lost this one mainly because, hey, somebody had to; he wasn't much better or worse than anyone else the Bees sent to the mound, save for Marcus Gwyn, the only pitcher to escape unscathed.

Offensively, Jeff Mathis, Matt Brown, Tommy Murphy (playing left and center), and Mike Eylward all had multi-hit nights.

2007-04-24: Tulsa 3, Arkansas 0 #
Rodriguez, S: 0-4
Wilson: 1-3, 1 K
Collins: 1-3
Adenhart: (L, 3-1), 8.1 IP, 3 R, 2 ER, 6 H, 7 K, 2 BB, 1.01 ERA
Nick Adenhart took his first loss despite going eight and a third innings, mainly because the offense, and partly, his defense let him down; Arkansas made two errors, both by Bobby Wilson; his seventh inning pickoff attempt to nab Jordan Czarniecki stealing second went into center field, and thus resulted in an unearned run.
2007-04-24: High Desert 1, Rancho Cucamonga 2 #
Statia: 0-4, 2 K
Renz: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 K
Toussaint: 1-2, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Marek: (W, 1-0), 6.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 5 K, 2 BB, 1.80 ERA
Lynch: 1.2 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 2.38 ERA
A two-hitter by Steven Marek over six-innings; High Desert eventually collected six hits. Jordan Renz and Drew Toussaint both had solo homers that comprised the entirety of the Quakes' scoring.
2007-04-24: Cedar Rapids 1, Great Lakes 2 #
Bourjos: 0-4, 1 K
Trumbo: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K
Conger: 0-4, 1 K
Phillips: 0-2, 1 BB, 2 K
Brandt: 4.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 6 K, 0 BB, 0.00 ERA
Herrera: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 4.50 ERA
Browning: (H, 3), 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 6.75 ERA
Madrigal: (H, 2), 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 2.84 ERA
Romero: (BS, 2)(L, 0-1) (in relief), 0.0 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 0 K, 0 BB, 5.40 ERA
A tough game to lose considering the pitching performances delivered, and the fact that the only run the Kernels scored came from what has to be the least likely source: a Mark Trumbo solo homer. It's his first of the year, but what's disappointing is that he's struck out in every game but one (striking out three times each in two separate games), while collecting only four hits.

2007-04-24: Las Vegas 5, Sacramento 6 #
Abreu: 4-5, 1 2B, 1 3B, 3 RBI
Garcia: 2-5, 1 K
Loney: 0-4, 1 BB, 2 K
Young: 1-5, 1 RBI
Mays: 5.0 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 5 K, 2 BB, 1 HR, 3.91 ERA
Hoorelbeke: 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 1 BB, 5.56 ERA
White: (BS, 2)(L, 0-1) (in relief), 1.0 IP, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 0 K, 1 BB, 1.46 ERA
River Cat J.J. Furmaniak — now sit down for this — executed a suicide squeeze that drove home the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth. Since when do the A's teach their players smallball? I'm waiting to read a press release about a new manager in Sacramento any day now ... Some great offensive performances here, including Tony Abreu, who missed hitting for the cycle by a homer.

Pitching? Joe Mays? Eh, not so much.

2007-04-24: Jacksonville 5, West Tenn 3 #
Hu, C: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Paul: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 K
Dunlap: 0-4, 2 BB
McDougall: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Allen: 0-1, 2 BB, 1 K
Ellis: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 BB
Ojeda: 6.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 H, 7 K, 0 BB, 4.74 ERA
Wright: 3.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 4 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 0.77 ERA
Meloan: (BS, 1), 1.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 0 K, 1 BB, 1.46 ERA
Akin: (W, 1-1) (in relief), 3.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 6 K, 1 BB, 2.77 ERA
Thirteen innings that included traded single-digit scoring in the tenth; Jacksonville won this one on Marshall McDougall's bases-loaded walk. McDougall's been doing a lot lately, including a solo homer in the fifth, which got me checking his birthday: 12/19/1978, i.e., Why Are You Still At AA?

A wild pitch to Anthony Raglani also scored Xavier Paul in the tenth inning, giving the Suns the lead without the necessity of any boring base hits. You know, to mix it up some.

In a low-scoring game like this one, you can imagine there were a lot of stolen base attempts, and so it was. Chin-Lung Hu stole second but got caught trying to steal third; and Wilkin Ruan and Xavier Paul both successfully swiped second.

Brian Akin got the win in relief, striing out six while giving up no hits and one walk. Jonathan Meloan got a blown save.

White, G: (W, 1-0) (in relief), 1.1 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 1.23 ERA
Clayton Kershaw pwn3d the Kernels, fanning twelve and pitching a three-hitter through six. The Loons won this game when Kernels starting catcher Hank Conger allowed a passed ball during Josh Bell's at bat, in turn letting Francisco Lizarraga and Matt Berezay advance to second and third respectively. Josh Bell's RBI single and Eduardo Perez's sac fly cashed both in to win the game.
