Scranton beats Buffalo, 3-2
- Sergio Mitre got the start, and continued to pitch well. Mitre pitched 8 shutout innings, allowing 6 hits and no walks, with 5 strikeouts. He also had a 15-4 GO-AO ratio, and, best of all, needed just 82 pitches to get through 8 innings. With Aceves struggling in his last start, Mitre could be next in line for a major league start. He certainly didn’t hurt his cause.
- Edwar Ramiez got the save despite giving up 2 runs on 3 hits in 1 inning of work. This is why saves are a stupid stat.
- Kevin Russo was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Ramiro Pena was 2 for 5 with a double.
- Austin Jackson was 0 for 3 with a walk and his 15th steal.
- Justin Bernier was 2 for 4 wtih a double.
Trenton defeats Connecticut, 9-2
- Kanekoa Texeira started, giving up 2 unearned runs on 4 hits in 5 innings, with 7 strikeouts.
- Austin Krum was 3 for 5 with a double and a triple.
- Reegie Corona was 2 for 3 with a double.
- Eduardo Nunez, Kyle Anson, and Chris Malec were each 1 for 4.
- Jorge Vazeuz was 1 for 5 with his 13th jack.
- Edwar Gonzalez was 2 for 4 with 2 doubles.
Tampa defeats Dunedin, 5-0
- Hector Noesi started, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits and a walk, with 8 strikeouts.
- Dan Brewer was 2 for 5 with a 2-run shot.
- Austin Romine, DH’ing, was 2 for 5 with a double.
- Brandon Laird, on a tear of late, was 4 for 4 with his 7th home run and a double. He got off to a horrendous start, but has mashed in July, hitting .417 with 3 homers and a 1.269 OPS. He is too good of a hitter to be as bad as he was in April and May, so I’m glad he’s turning things around.
- Walter Ibarra was 2 for 3 with a walk.
Clockwise video Charleston was off tonight.
The Ewok Adventure film Staten Island beats Brooklyn, 5-3
- Francisco Rondon started, giving up 3 unearned runs on 2 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings, with 7 strikeouts.
- Gavin Brooks kept his ERA at 0.00 with a shutout inning of relief, striking out 1 and allowing 2 hits.
- Jimmy Paredes was 1 for 4.
- Carmen Angelini was 1 for 4 with a double.
- Zoilo Almonte was 2 for 4.
- Neil Medchill was 1 for 4 with a homer, his 4th of the season.
- Kelvin Castro was 0 for 3.
- Luke Murton was 2 for 3 with a double and an error.
- Kyle Higashioka was 0 for 3.
The GCL Yanks were off tonight.
Tonight was also the Futures Game, which included Jesus Montero and Manuel Banuelos competing for the World Team. Montero started at catcher and batted 5th, going 0 for 2 with an RBI groundout. Banuelos did not enter the game because it was shortened to 7 innings because of rain. Too bad for Manny, but at 18, he should get another chance if he keeps pitching like he has. The World Team rallied for a 7-5 win in the bottom of the 7th after being down 5-3. There is a nice interview of Montero at milb.com.
Since I didn’t get to write any other recaps this weekend, I should mention that Jairo Heredia is finally back from his mysterious injury. He pitched 2 shutout innings in the GCL. I’m not sure where he will end up this season, but he was ticketed for Tampa before the injury, so maybe he will be there. Ivan Nova pitched 8 innings of 1-run ball on Saturday for Scranton, so he has continued to pitch well. Andrew Brackman had another mediocre outing, but did not walk anybody, which is a plus.
