Scranton’s game against Syracuse was postponed
Trenton batters New Britain, 11-0
- Zach McAllister put together another strong start, giving up just 4 hits and 2 walks in 7 shutout innings, while striking out 5. This type of outing has been Zach’s MO over the past 2 years: not striking out tons of batters while limiting extra-base hits and walks. So far it’s worked for him, with a 1.91 ERA on the season.
- Kevin Whelan allowed a hit and struck out 1 in 2 scoreless.
- Eduardo Nunez was 4 for 4 with his 3rd homer of the year, raising his average to .302.
- Colin Curtis was 5 for 5 with a walk.
- Jorge Vazquez was 2 for 5.
- Kyle Anson was 2 for 3 with 2 walks.
Tampa defeats Fort Myers, 3-1 (7 innings)
- Lance Pendleton pitched well, giving up an unearned run on 3 hits and 2 walks in 6 1/3 innings, while striking out 5.
- Jesus Montero, catching, was 2 for 4 to raise his average to .329. He’s had a bit of a homer drought, not going deep since May 1. However, as long as he keeps the average high and the doubles coming, I’m not worried.
- Austin Romine was 1 for 4 with a double, dropping his average to .288. He’s having a very solid year offensively so far, though the low walk total is reason for concern.
- Damon Sublett was 1 for 2 with a double and 2 walks.
- Wady Runio and Brian Baisley were each 2 for 3.
Charleston beats Bowling Green, 9-4
- Andrew Brackman had an absolute meltdown with his control, but somehow escaped with only 3 runs allowed in 3 1/3 innings. The tall righty allowed just 1 hit but walked 10 (!) and also tossed 5 (!!!) wild pitches. I hope he’s not injured, but this loss of control is likely indicative of a pretty serious mechanical problem (injury-related or no). He seemed to have gotten the walks under control in his last few outings, and I was even calling for a promotion, but perhaps he needs more time to iron out his mechanics.
- Abe Almonte was 2 for 5 with a triple to raise his average to .273.
- Dan Brewer was 1 for 5 with 2 steals.
- David Adams was 2 for 3 with 2 walks, and is hitting .278.
- Melky Mesa continued his hot hitting, going 2 for 4 with a double and a walk. He’s hitting .394 in his last 10 games, and a promotion Tampa awaits if he keeps this up.
- Mike Lyon was 2 for 3 with 2 walks and 2 steals.
- Jose Pirela was 1 for 4 with a walk.
- Addison Maruszak was 2 for 3 with a double.
That’s all for tonight. Stay tuned for draft stuff tomorrow, and see which high school players I will become irrationally obsessed with.
