Daily Farm Report: Grichuk Goes Yard, Petrick Pitches A Beauty, and Peoria Puts Up With (Hopefully) Winter's Last Gasp

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The system went 2-1, the starters in Memphis and Palm Beach had mediocre outings, but Zach Petrick picked up his counterparts. Randal Grichuk hit one of 3 Memphis home runs as the Redbirds hung 8 runs on the Sounds.

Memphis 8 Nashville 4

Notables:

Notes:

  • This was not the version of Tim Cooney we've become accustomed to as he allowed 10 men to reach base over 5.1 innings. Even with all of the base runners he still really only ran into trouble in the first and the sixth.
  • Jose Almarante, Sam Freeman, Eric Fornataro and Jorge Rondon combined to allow 1 run on 0 walks with 3 strikeouts over the final 3.2 innings.
  • Joey Butler's homer was his third of the season and tied him with Greg Garcia for the team lead. It's only 12 games into the season, but the 4 highest OPS's on the team belong to org guys Joey Butler, Scott Moore, Audrey Perez and Ed Easley.

Springfield 2 Corpus Christi 1

Notables:

Notes:

  • On a day when the bats were quiet, Zach Petrick was the star for Springfield. He got dinged for a run in the first and pitched out of a jam in the fifth, but he cruised for the rest of his night.
  • Springfield did not have an extra base hit on the night.
  • Aledmys Diaz drove in the winning run in the fifth. Right now his strike out to walk ratio is an irrational number, but he is batting .359 on the young season.

Bradenton 5 Palm Beach 0

Notables:

Notes:

  • There aren't a lot of offensive performances of note when the team gets shutout, but Palm Beach still managed to pick up 6 hits (including 3 doubles) and 3 walks, but Bradenton pitchers were able to pitch around those as well as the 4 errors made behind them.
  • It was a forgettable outing for Marco Gonzales. He struck out 5 put 12 men on base in 6.1 innings. He was only on the hook for 3 of the runs though. His defense made 2 throwing errors behind him in the second, and the third run of the inning came in on a double steal.
  • Palm Beach allowed 3 stolen bases in 3 attempts, although 2 came on the aforementioned double steal.
  • Anthony Garcia only has 9 (.205 BA) hits on the season, but 6 (4 homers and 2 doubles) of them have gone for extra bases.
