Patrick Wisdom - Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Two players drafted as 3rd basemen in 2012 hit home runs, Memphis is rained out and the system goes 1-2.

Oklahoma City @ Memphis (PPD)

Springfield 4 - Midland 1

  • Patrick Wisdom's 2nd inning 3 run homer was his 5th of the season.
  • Wisdom's home run was all the Springfield pitching staff would need. Jonathan Cornelius had one of his better outings this year. His 7 IP equaled his longest outing this season. Justin Wright contributed two scoreless innings as well.

Daytona 8 - Palm Beach 4

  • Thomas Lee's walk rate has fallen every time he has moved up a level, starting at 4.1% in rookie ball, dropping down to 2.6% at Peoria last year, and getting all the way down to 1.6% this year. Unfortunately, his K% rate which started at 26% in rookie ball has fallen as well, dropping below 16% this year. Last night was a typical Lee outing this season, as he pitched to contact. 9 balls in play fell for hits and another 2 went for errors, which lead to a run in the 2nd and 3 more runs in the 5th.
  • After the giving up the lead in the 5th, Palm Beach was still able to make it a 1 run game in the 7th, but Sam Tuivailala gave up 3 in the 8th and Daytona put the game out of reach.
  • Breyvic Valera's stolen base was his team leading 11th of the season. He set a career high with 13 stolen bags in 2013.

Kane County 5 - Peoria 4

  • C.J. McElroy (CF): 2-5, SB
  • Vaughn Bryan (CF): 3-5, R, 2B
  • Juan Herrera (SS): 3-4, R, 2B, RBI, BB, K, SB
  • Carson Kelly (C): 2-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB
  • Kenneth Peoples-Walls (LF): 1-5, RBI, 2 K
  • Gerwuins Velazco (DH): 1-3, BB, K
  • Richy Pedroza (2B): 1-4, R
  • Blake McKnight (SP): 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
  • Brandon Lee (RP): 1.2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, HR
  • Blake McKnight had a rough 1st inning, giving up a triple to the 1st batter he faced and allowing 1 run 2 hits and 1 walk total. He settled in after that until running into trouble in the 6th. McKnight allowed 2 baserunners before giving way to Brandon Lee. Lee allowed 1 of his inherited runners to score along with 3 of his own when he gave up a grand slam later in the inning. The home run put Kane County ahead for good, although Peoria would rally late.
  • Carson Kelly's home run was his 4th of the season and his 2nd in the last 5 days. Kelly also threw out the only Cougar who attempted a stolen base, made a putout on a play at the plate and picked off a runner.
  • Juan Herrera's stolen base was his team leading 19th of the season, C.J. McElroy's was his 10th.
  • The top of the Peoria lineup drove the offense, the 1st 4 hitters went 10-18, 3 R, 2 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB, K.
