Daily Farm Report: Memphis Bludgeons Salt Lake Again, And Rowan Wick Homers

Randal Grichuk - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The system goes 5-4 on the night.

Memphis 13 - Salt Lake 4


  • Memphis didn't waste any time, scoring 5 runs in the 1st 2 innings. Greg Garcia was the only Memphis hitter not to get a hit, but he reached on a fielder's choice and scored. Tommy Pham was the only Redbird starter not to score.
  • Much like Thursday night the Redbirds were able to put up a big number even though they had trouble putting balls over the fence. They scored 12 runs with 1 home run Thursday night, and scored 13 without the aid of a homer last night.

Arkansas 3 - Springfield 2

  • Springfield starter Mike Mayers was making his Texas League debut. He was able to wriggle out of a couple jams, but was undone by a 3 run 5th inning.
  • James Ramsey drove in Springfield's 1st run on a sacrifice fly in the top of the 3rd, but Starlin Rodriguez replaced him in center to start the bottom of the 3rd. I'm not sure if that was due to injury or not.

Palm Beach 3 - Charlotte 1



  • Dixon Llorens BB% has ticked up a bit this season, but he's still striking out almost 40% of the batters he faces.

Quad Cities 2 - Peoria 1 (7 Innings)

  • C.J. McElroy (CF): 0-4, 2 K
  • Carson Kelly (C): 0-2, BB
  • Vaughn Bryan (RF): 1-3, K
  • Richie Pedroza (DH): 1-3, R
  • Kenny Peoples-Walls (LF): 0-2, K
  • Jimmy Reed (SP): 5 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 9 K, 1 HR

Peoria 1 - Quad Cities 0 (7 Innings)

  • C.J. McElroy (CF): 0-3
  • Vaughn Bryan (RF): 1-3
  • Luis Perez (LF): 2-2, R
  • Michael Schulze (3B): 2-2, RBI
  • Chase Brookshire (SP): 5.1 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K


  • Not much in the way of offense in either game. The 2 teams combined for 3 extra base hits (2 2B 1 HR) over 14 innings of baseball. 
  • Jimmy Reed's 9 strike outs for Peoria in game 1 equaled his season high.

State College 5 - Jamestown 3

  • Jhohan Acevedo (CF): 1-5, R, RBI, 2 SB
  • Danny Diekroeger (2B): 1-5, R, HR, RBI, K
  • Adam Ehrlich (DH): 0-4
  • Alex De Leon (1B): 1-4, R, HR, RBI
  • Rowan Wick (RF): 1-4, R, HR, RBI, 2 K
  • Leobaldo Pina (SS): 1-4, R, 2B, K
  • Daniel Poncedeleon (SP): 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB
  • Trey Nielsen (RP): 4 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR

  • The 3 home runs State College hit were the only ones hit in the system last night. Which means Rowan Wick single-handedly hit more homers than the rest of the Cardinals minor league affiliates combined.

DSL Mariners 6 - DSL Cardinals 1


  • Carlos Talavera (CF): 0-2, R, BB
  • Jonathan Rivera (RF): 2-4, 2B, 2 K
  • Luis Bandes (LF): 0-3, RBI
  • Oscar Cotes (3B): 3-4, R, K

Bluefield 4 - Johnson City 1

  • Oscar Mercado (SS): 0-4
  • Chris Rivera (3B): 0-4, 2 K
  • Casey Turgeon (2B): 2-3, R, K
  • Landon Beck (SP): 3 IP, 4 H, K
  • Steven Farinaro (SP): 4.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
