Daily Farm Report - 6/11/13

A daily recap of the minor league players in the Cardinals farm system.

Memphis 9, New Orleans 2 (7 innings)

  • Chad Huffman was 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk.
  • Oscar Taveras was 2-for-3 with a walk and a double. He would appear in game 2 only as a pinch hitter.
  • Greg Garcia was 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles.
  • Rob Johnson hit his 7th home run of the season.
  • Boone Whiting pitched a complete game allowing 2 runs in 7 innings. He scattered 8 hits and 1 walk while striking out 6. Whiting needed 104 pitches for the outing.

Memphis 5, New Orleans 4 (7 innings)

  • Justian Christian was 2-for-4.
  • Brock Peterson was 2-for-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Ryan Jackson was 1-for-3 with a walk.
  • Greg Garcia was 1-for-3 with a triple and a walk.
  • Richard Castillo struck out 4 in 5.1 innings. He allowed 2 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks.
  • Michael Blazek was roughed up for 2 runs in 0.2 innings. He allowed 3 hits and walked 1 while striking out 1.

Springfield 3, Tulsa 4

  • Mike O'Neill was 2-for-5. O'Neill still has a ridiculous .433 OBP.
  • Chris Swauger, back from the DL, was 1-for-3 with a walk.
  • Starlin Rodriguez was 2-for-3. After posting an OPS over .800 in Palm Beach across 2011 & 2012, Rodriguez has struggled to maintain his offense while playing second in Springfield. He's hitting for a .689 OPS on the season.
  • Ryan Sherriff allowed 10 hits in 7 innings but managed to scatter them for just 2 runs. He waked 1 and struck out 3.
  • Sherriff came out for the 8th but was pulled after his first hitter. Kevin Thomas allowed that runner to score and handed the game off to Deryk Hooker with two runners on base. Hooker would allow both of those runners to score handing Tulsa the lead heading into the 9th. Springfield couldn't recover.

Palm Beach 5, Dunedin 4

  • Colin Walsh was 3-for-5.
  • Alex Mejia and Nick Longmire both went 2-for-4.
  • Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a double.
  • Jonathan Rodriguez was 0-for-1 with 3 walks.
  • Kyle Hald struck out 4 in 5 innings. He allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and a walk. Hald's strikeout rate has taken a massive hit this season and gone from solid to unacceptable. He's maintained very good control but long term, obviously, this is a bad trend.
  • Danny Miranda struck out 1 in a perfect 9th.

Peoria 4, Clinton 6

  • Jeremy Schaffer went 3-for-4 with a home run.
  • Silfredo Garcia had an excellent start striking out 7 in 7 innings. He walked 1 and allowed 5 hits for 2 runs (1 earned).
  • That start was undone by a horrible 8th inning where Sam Tuivailala allowed 3 runs and Robert Stock allowed a 4th run.
