Daily Farm Report - 6/27/13

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

Memphis 5, Albuquerque 3 (10 innings)

  • Kolten Wong was 2-for-4 with a double and a walk. He's made big strides in the last month and has really transformed his seasonal numbers. He's now hitting .321/.371/.475. On top of that he's managed to pilfer 11 bases while being caught just once.
  • Brock Peterson was 3-for-5 with a two run walk off home run. It is his league leading 19th home run in the PCL.
  • Boone Whiting struggled with his command allowing 1 run on 4 walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out 6.
  • The Cardinals had a 2 run lead heading into the 8th. Mitchell Boggs proceeded to allowing the tying run that inning on 2 hits (only 1 run was earned after an error by Greg Garcia).
  • Fernando Salas picked up the win with 2 innings of shutout baseball allowing 2 hits and striking out 3.

Springfield 6, Corpus Christi 5

  • Memphis needed a 10 inning walk off but Springfield needed their own set of heroics. Trailing 4-1 headed into the 9th, Memphis slapped a 5 spot on the Hooks and then turned to a first time closer.
  • James Ramsey was 0-for-2 but walked 3 times.
  • Luis Mateo was 2-for-4.
  • Cody Stanley pinch hit in the 9th inning and came away with a monster 3 run home run.
  • Jonathan Cornelius allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits and 3 walks. He struck out 5.
  • Kevin Thomas struck out 4 in 2 innings allowing just 1 hit. Kevin Thomas has been sneaky good this season. In case you hadn't noticed, he's struck out 46 in 32.2 innings against 12 walks. The former starter converted to full time relief last year and saw a big improvement in command while the strikeout rates started to climb.
  • Lee Stoppelman came in to relieve Heath Wyatt in the 9th. Wyatt had started the inning but allowed two runners to reach base immediately. Stoppelman, with no margin for error, stemmed the tied and closed out the game for his first save. He walked 1.

Palm Beach 10, St. Lucie 6

  • Colin Walsh was 0-for-3 with a pair of walks. Despite a .269 batting average Walsh has a .373 OBP.
  • Danny Stienstra was 3-for-4 with his 3rd home run of the season.
  • Anthony Garcia was 2-for-5 with a double.
  • Zach Petrick struck out 3 in 6 innings of work. He allowed 1 walk and 5 hits for 1 run. This is the second start for Petrick who was incredible in relief. It will be interesting to see how this conversion proceeds.
  • Jay Voss got lit up for 4 runs in 2 innings of relief. He allowed 4 hits and 2 walks while striking out 1.

Peoria 5, Quad Cities 4

State College 0, Mahoning Valley 2

  • State College was held to just a single and a double on the night as Mahoning Valley faced just 2 over the minimum.
  • 2013 draftee Nick Petree allowed 1 run on 3 hits. He allowed 1 walk and struck out 4.
  • Victor de Leon struck out 1 in 2 innings of shutout work. He allowed 2 hits.

Johnson City 5, Bristol 3

  • Brett Wiley, 2B, was 0-for-2 with a pair of walks.
  • Ronnierd Garcia, 3B, was 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk.
  • Luis Perdomo got the start with 4 innings allowing 2 unearned runs. He struck out 6 and allowed 5 hits.
  • Norge Paredes struck out 4 with 1 hit and 1 walk in 4 innings.
