Minor League Scorebook

News

From this week's Prospect Hot Sheet:
No. 6 IVAN DeJESUS, 2B/SS DODGERS

Team: Double-A Jacksonville (Southern)
Age: 21
Why He's Here: .440/.481/.600 (11-for-25), 7 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 4 SO, 1-for-1 SB
The Scoop: Now rocking a 15-game hitting streak, DeJesus has all the ingredients to hit for a high average: he has quick bat speed, he puts the ball in play and he has an excellent knowledge of the strike zone. That plate discipline makes DeJesus and his .411 on-base percentage a valuable prospect as a middle infielder, whether it's at shortstop or second base. But when a player's slugging (.409) is less than his OBP, that's a warning sign that more advanced pitchers might simply do a better job of attacking DeJesus, who right now is more of a singles hitter without much extra base pop. He doesn't project to have much power, but he's still just 21 and has the time to gain the strength needed to make him a valuable big leaguer.

Scores

2008-08-22: Tucson 12, Salt Lake 3 #
Wilson: 0-4
Brown, D: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Wood: 0-4, 2 K
Sandoval, F: 1-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI
Adenhart: (L, 7-13), 5.0 IP, 5 R, 5 ER, 8 H, 4 K, 2 BB, 6.16 ERA
Bootcheck: 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 2.66 ERA
Another lame start by Nick Adenhart, who gave up four runs after two. He gave up a pair of wild pitches along the way, one of which put two runners in scoring position, another which actually did score a run. Kid needs to regroup.

Freddie Sandoval homered, a two-run, two-out shot in the eighth that was too little, too late. Brandon Wood failed to reach first in any of his plate appearances, ending a 12-game on-base streak.

Tim Raines, Jr. was a single away from hitting for the cycle for Tucson.

2008-08-22: Arkansas 8, Tulsa 7 #
Ortiz, W: 3-5, 1 RBI, 1 K
Stavisky: 3-5, 1 RBI
Johnson, Be: 2-5, 1 K
Trumbo: 2-5, 1 RBI, 1 K
Pettit: 2-3, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Morrissey: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Leahy: 2-4, 1 RBI
Mosebach: 4.0 IP, 6 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 2 K, 6 BB, 4.74 ERA
Ibanez: 3.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 5 K, 3 BB, 5.56 ERA
Rodriguez, Fr: (W, 5-4) (in relief), 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 1 BB, 4.11 ERA
Tulsa put a five-run beatdown on Bobby Mosebach in the third, three of which were unearned when an inning-ending double play turned into a force and an error on Wil Ortiz; Eduardo Cornejo's eventual bases-loaded double cashed in all three baserunners. The Travs scratched their way back with three in the fifth and two more in the top of the ninth, with Mark Trumbo driving in the tying run in the top of the ninth and Chris Pettit executing a squeeze to push across the winning run. Francisco Rodriguez closed out the game with two scoreless innings and was credited with the win.
2008-08-22: San Jose 4, Rancho Cucamonga 8 #
Willits: 1-2, 2 BB
Mount: 2-4, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 K
Conger: 1-4, 1 K
Toussaint: 1-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K
Phillips: 0-2
Bourjos: 1-4
Walden: (W, 4-2), 6.0 IP, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 4 K, 2 BB, 4.10 ERA
Bell: 1.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 2 BB, 4.48 ERA
Ryan Mount hit a fifth-inning grand slam that blew the game wide open, giving the Quakes a 6-3 advantage they would not relinquish. Drew Toussaint also homered, a leadoff shot in the sixth.

Jordan Walden got his fourth win since making his first start with the Quakes on July 20, giving him a decision in all but one of his seven starts but only three quality starts in that span.

2008-08-22: Cedar Rapids 6, Peoria 5 #
Moore: 2-5, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K
Romine: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Fuller: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 K
Perez, Ju: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Brossman: 2-4, 2 2B, 2 RBI
Fish: (W, 9-4), 6.1 IP, 3 R, 3 ER, 9 H, 8 K, 1 BB, 5.07 ERA
McKiernan: (S, 19), 1.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 3.84 ERA
Cedar Rapids should have won this game by a larger margin than they did, but the bullpen let the Chiefs back into the game and nearly denied Robert Fish's fine eight-strikeout effort. Jeremy Moore homered in the top of the third, Jay Brossman drove in two on a sixth-inning RBI double, and doubled to lead off the ninth. That set up the game-winning insurance run, when Tyler Johnson's drove in Brossman on a scoring groundout to the pitcher. Eddie McKiernan allowed a solo homer to Brandon Guyer, but that was all.
2008-08-22: Casper 1, Orem 9 #
Perez, D: 0-2, 3 BB, 2 K
Contreras: 3-3, 1 2B, 1 BB
Lopez: 2-4, 1 HR, 4 RBI
Jimenez: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI
Castillo: 2-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 1 K
Miller: (W, 7-2), 6.0 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 4 H, 8 K, 1 BB, 2.01 ERA
Correa: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 3 K, 1 BB, 6.00 ERA
The Owlz continue to stomp just about everybody. In this game, Orem hit four homers — two by Angel Castillo, and one by Luis Jimenez and Roberto Lopez, Lopez's a three run shot in the seventh and the only one with runners on base.

Darwin Perez is hitting .227/.393/.273 in August, and he actually has more walks this month (17) than hits (15). In general the kid's been walking a bunch, with a .287/.402/.436 line on the season with Orem, and you've just gotta looove that kind of plate discipline. He got three walks in this game, the third game this year with three or more, and he's walked in all but six games this month.

2008-08-22: AZL Mariners 1, AZL Angels 4 #
Crawford: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K
Sierra: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Wing: 2-4, 2 RBI, 1 K
Chatwood: (W, 1-2), 5.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 11 K, 2 BB, 2.83 ERA
Thompson: (S, 1), 2.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 K, 0 BB, 4.50 ERA
Tyler Chatwood got his first win in ten starts and only the first one in which he's been eligible for a win; he's been a master of the no-decision, and hadn't completed the fifth in any of his prior appearances.
2008-08-22: Las Vegas 12, Colorado Springs 0 #
Maza: 0-4, 2 BB, 1 K
Young: 3-5, 2 2B, 1 3B, 1 RBI
Orenduff, J: 0-1, 1 K
DeWitt: 2-6, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 K

Hu: 3-4, 1 2B, 2 RBI
McDonald: 0-1, 1 K
Williams: (W, 1-2), 5.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 4 K, 1 BB, 2.70 ERA
McDonald: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 4.15 ERA
Orenduff, J: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 0 BB, 6.75 ERA
Jerome Williams got the start and picked up his first win in his first start of the season for the 51's. James McDonald made his first relief appearance all year (save for the Southern League All-Star game) and pitched two scoreless innings; pretty clearly, he's being groomed for a bullpen appearance at the big club. Las Vegas pitchers combined for a four-hit shutout of the Sky Sox, while the 51's battered Colorado Springs' pitching for 12 runs on 16 hits, 10 of them for extra bases.

Perez, E: (W, 4-2), 5.0 IP, 2 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 4 K, 2 BB, 2.91 ERA
Completed early due to rain, the Dodgers pounded the Cards with a six-run first that included three wild pitches, five walks (one of them scoring), and two errors. The four-run sixth wasn't nearly as busy, but almost as effective, with scoring capped by Chris Jacobs' three-run homer.
