Tom Szczerbowski

Affiliates go 2-2 on the day. Springfield lost in the 10th inning, Peoria won in the 10th inning, and State College couldn't muster a run until the 9th in their 8-2 loss.

Memphis 7 Reno 2

Notables:

Notes:

  • The Redbirds jumped all over Reno's starter, Zeke Spruill, hanging 7 ER on him in just 4 innings of work.
  • Taveras wasted no time getting back to business in AAA and Stephen Piscotty celebrated his return as well with his 20th double of the season while drawing three walks.
  • Tim Cooney's last four starts: 28.2 IP, 17 H, 3 ER, 8 BB, 18 K

Tulsa 4 Springfield 3

Notables:

Notes:

  • Wisdom committed his 16th error of the season in just 65 games. That's....too many, especially for a guy who was thought to be an above average third baseman coming into the season.
  • Top prospect Jonathan Gray started for the Drillers, blanking Springfield over his 5 innings of work and striking out 5.
  • Starlin Rodriguez is just 3 for 29 since getting promoted to Springfield 10 days ago.  Oof.

Peoria 6 Clinton 5

Notables:

  • Vaughn Bryan (CF): 2-5, R
  • Juan Herrera (SS): 1-5, RBI, K
  • Justin Ringo (DH): 3-5, 2B, RBI
  • Steve Bean (C): 2-5, R, HR, RBI, K
  • Mason Katz (1B): 2-5, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, K
  • Kenny Peoples-Walls (LF): 0-4
  • Arturo Reyes (SP): 6 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, BB, K
  • Chris Perry (RP): 1 IP, BB, K
  • Zach Loraine (RP): 1 IP, 4 H, ER, HR
Notes:

  • Peoria rapped out 14 hits but left 9 on base, many of those in scoring position. They had multiple chances to break this game wide open and couldn't do it.
  • Mason Katz hit his 10th and 11th homers of the season, both solo shots.
  • Justin Ringo is hitting .447/.512/.816 in his first 42 PA's with Peoria with 5 doubles and 3 home runs among his 17 hits. Great start in A ball for the 23 year old lefty from Stanford.

Williamsport 8 State College 2

Notables:

  • Andrew Sohn (SS): 0-4, R, K
  • Adam Erlich (DH): 0-3
  • Nick Thompson (LF): 1-4, R, HR, 2 RBI
  • Rowan Wick (RF): 1-4, K
  • Brian O'Keefe (C): 0-3
  • Rafael Medina (3B): 0-3
  • Collin Radack (CF): 0-3
  • Ian McKinney (SP): 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
  • Kyle Grana (RP): 1.2 IP, 2 H, ER, 3 K
Notes:

  • Sohn, Thompson, O'Keefe, and Radack were all 2014 draftees who quickly signed and were sent directly to State College to start their seasons.
  • Thompson homered in just his 13th professional AB.
  • Ian McKinney pitched well in his Penn League debut, allowing just a pair of runs over 5 innings while striking out five and walking one.
  • Kyle Grana allowed 3 inherited runners to score after entering the game in the 6th inning in relief of Jeff Barkley, who was able to get just one out while being charged with 5 ER and allowing Williamsport to break the game open.
