Minor League Scorebook

2007-08-24: Salt Lake 5, Colorado Springs 3 #
Smith, Ca: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Gorneault: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI
Rivera: 1-4
Wood: 0-3, 1 BB
Brown: 3-4, 1 2B
Wilson: 2-4, 1 RBI
Murphy: 0-3
Rouwenhorst: (W, 10-8), 7.0 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 6 H, 4 K, 0 BB, 4.61 ERA
Gwyn: (S, 15), 0.1 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 3.08 ERA
Nobody will ever mistake Jonathan Rouwenhorst for a major league starter, but he's given the Bees six quality starts out of seven tries since July 24 with a 3.38 ERA over that time, and that's got to count for something. His strikeout rate is still pretty awful (4.37 over the last month, and 4.85 for the season), and while he sports a 2.00 K/BB ratio, that's still pretty high. Nevertheless, he snapped a personal five-game losing skid with last night's win, and so, congratulations.

Nick Gorneault broke a 1-1 tie with a two-run homer in the fifth and drove in another on an RBI double in the seventh. Matt Brown went 3-for-4, his second consecutive three-hit game.

2007-08-24: Arkansas 1, Wichita 8 #
Rodriguez, S: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI
Collins: 1-3, 1 K
Green: (L, 10-7), 6.1 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 H, 1 K, 3 BB, 3.68 ERA
Nick Green's four-game winning streak came to an end, but he's done a great job in that stretch. His last two wins were consecutive, but between July 6 and August 8 he also posted five no-decisions. There's been chatter about Green being ready for the Show as early as next year, maybe even leapfrogging Nick Adenhart, but I'm not so sure. For one thing, Green's peripherals (5.47 K/9, 3.27 K/BB, 1.08 WHIP) remind me a lot of Jonathan Rouwenhorst's, and, well, huh. Nevertheless, eight quality starts in nine tries since July 6, so good on him.

The offense just could not get it going against Jason Shiell and two relievers, who combined to four-hit the Travs, though one of those hits was a Sean Rodriguez solo homer, who got half of the Travs' total hits by going 2-for-4.

Reliever Jonathan Kennard gave up a grand slam in the seventh to Jorge Padilla.

2007-08-24: Rancho Cucamonga 4, San Jose 3 #
Statia: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K
Toussaint: 2-3, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 1 BB
Wipke: 1-2, 1 RBI, 2 BB
Leblanc: 0-4, 4 K
Schoeninger: (W, 6-3), 6.1 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 6 H, 4 K, 4 BB, 1 HR, 6.02 ERA
Rodriguez: (S, 1), 2.2 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 5 K, 0 BB, 6.29 ERA
Tim Schoeninger snapped a personal two-game losing streak, collecting his first win in nearly a month with the Quakes and only his second quality start in that period. Francisco Rodriguez got a 2.2 inning save, his first of the season.

Both sides traded zeroes through three until Drew Toussaint doubled in a pair in the fourth; he later scored the winning run in the top of the sixth.

2007-08-24: Cedar Rapids 9, Quad Cities 0 #
Phillips: 0-5, 5 K
Bourjos: 1-3, 2 BB
Ortiz, W: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Trumbo: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB
Conger: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Mount: 2-3, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB
Bell: (W, 7-4), 7.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 5 K, 2 BB, 4.24 ERA
Browning: 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 K, 0 BB, 2.97 ERA
Trevor Bell is on a little roll here, getting quality starts in four straight games and receiving wins in three of them. Barret Browning and Marco Albano completed the shutout to three-hit the Swing; the game marked Albano's return to the Midwest League after his conversion to the mound. (He actually pitched in one game on July 17, but disappeared shortly thereafter to Tempe, presumably in instructional league. He struck out one and walked one in this contest.) The Kernels now lead the league in shutouts, with eleven.

Hank Conger notched his first multi-hit game since returning from the DL, going 3-for-4. Wilberto Ortiz and Ryan Mount both homered, Mount's a two-run shot in the second.

2007-08-24: Casper 0, Orem 1 #
Miller: 2-3, 1 BB
Tobin: 6.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 7 K, 1 BB, 1.64 ERA
Towns: (W, 4-3) (in relief), 3.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 3 K, 0 BB, 2.36 ERA
Mason Tobin got his second quality start in three tries, but failed to collect the win despite a dominant seven strikeout performance. Both sides traded goose eggs through eight and a half until Gordon Gronkowski was hit by a pitch to lead off the bottom of the ninth. Orem called in pinch runner Trevor Pippin, who stole second (only his third steal of the season) and reached third on an offline throw by catcher Austin Rauch. Hector Estrella's sac fly sent him home to glory, ending a remarkably short game (2:22).
2007-08-24: AZL Angels 1, AZL Giants 8 #
Reckling: 4.0 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 5 H, 9 K, 1 BB, 2.84 ERA
Rosario, An: (L, 2-2) (in relief), 1.1 IP, 6 R, 5 ER, 4 H, 2 K, 1 BB, 1 HR, 5.75 ERA
Trevor Reckling has crazy strikeouts (13.64 K/9), never walks anybody (9.60 K/BB) or gives up baserunners (1.11 WHIP), but he still can't seem to figure out how to get a quality start, qualifying for exactly one while at Tempe. He could be a real lights-out bullpen guy...
2007-08-24: Tucson 2, Las Vegas 3 (10 innings) #
Valdez: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 K
Hu, C: 0-4, 1 RBI
Young: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
McDougall: 2-5, 1 RBI
Pinango: 7.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 2 K, 3 BB, 4.12 ERA
Riley: (BS, 3), 1.1 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 1 BB, 1 HR, 6.50 ERA
Hull: (W, 4-3) (in relief), 1.2 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 2.76 ERA
The 51's pulled this one out in extras with Marshall McDougall's 10th-inning walkoff RBI single. Delwyn Young took the PCL two-bagger lead with his 47th double in the ninth.

Miguel Pinango, who occaisionally resembles a pitching prospect, carried a no-hitter through four and two-thirds before giving up a two-out RBI single to Ronnie Merrill, Jr., the only run he allowed in seven innings.

2007-08-24: Mississippi 5, Jacksonville 2 #
Dewitt: 0-4, 1 K
Howard, K: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K
Tomlin: 2-3, 1 BB
Miller: (L, 1-2), 3.0 IP, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 H, 5 K, 7 BB, 4.54 ERA
Hammes: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 2 K, 2 BB, 4.43 ERA
LaMura: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 2 K, 1 BB, 2.56 ERA
I'm not really sure what they're thinking in Jacksonville, because Greg Miller keeps weaving in and out of the rotation, getting a start in this game and on August 17, but also being used in relief on August 14 and 21. Very odd, considering, but the Dodgers must know what they're doing ... right?

Kevin Howard went 2-for-4 and hit a solo homer in the loss.

2007-08-24: Lake Elsinore 2, Inland Empire 1 #
De Jesus: 0-3
Bell: 0-3, 1 K
White, C: (L, 2-2), 6.2 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 9 H, 1 K, 2 BB, 3.86 ERA
Cody White has a 4.14 season K/9 with Inland Empire over 11 games, yet he owns a 3.86 ERA over that span... just amazing ... he also owns a 1.81 K/BB and a 1.35 WHIP, which makes the success he's had even more unlikely. He had a good outing earned-run-wise, the lone unearned run coming in the first on RF Jamie Hoffman's fielding error.
2007-08-24: Great Lakes 1, Lansing 4 #
Mattingly: 0-4, 2 K
Mathews: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K
Santana: 0-3
Rivera, J: 1-3, 1 2B
Malone: (L, 0-3), 5.0 IP, 4 R, 2 ER, 5 H, 5 K, 2 BB, 6.27 ERA
Jones: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 3 K, 1 BB, 5.20 ERA
Sanfler: 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 5.51 ERA
2007-08-24: Idaho Falls 6, Ogden 3 #
Pedroza: 2-4, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K
Garabedian: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI
Herrera: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K
Blevins: (L, 3-3), 5.0 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 7 H, 6 K, 0 BB, 3.55 ERA
2007-08-24: GCL Dodgers 9, GCL Mets 7 (10 innings) #
Becker: 0-4, 2 BB, 1 K
Poole: 3-6, 1 2B
Silverio: 3-6, 2 RBI, 1 K
Lambo: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Orr: 1-6, 1 HR, 2 RBI
Danielson: 2.0 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 3.48 ERA
Perez, E: 2.0 IP, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 4.34 ERA
Tuten: (BS, 1)(W, 2-0) (in relief), 2.0 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 K, 2 BB, 2.08 ERA
Won on RBI singles by Alfredo Silverio and Andrew Lambo in the top of the 10th; Brandon Tuten got a blown save but also the win, pitching a scoreless tenth.
