A daily recap of the minor league players in the Cardinals' farm system.
Memphis 2, Iowa 6
Kolten Wong was 1-for-4 with a triple. As Wong has improved his statistics, I find it increasingly fascinating to see what the organization does with him long term. Matt Carpenter has proven to be a potent force at the top of the major league line. This question would seem to be less about Matt Carpenter and Kolten Wong than it is David Freese, who has the fewest years of cost control. Depth like this is a good problem to have and if Freese departs via free agency, that would provide an obvious avenue for both Wong and Carpenter.
Brock Peterson was 1-for-4 with his 20th home run.
Michael Wacha had a mixed outing surrendering 8 hits in 5.1 innings but striking out 9. He allowed 1 walk and 4 runs.
Mitchell Boggs allowed 2 runs on 2 hits and a walk in 2 innings of work.
Peoria 2, Burlington 1
- C.J. McElroy was 1-for-3 with a triple and a walk.
- Peoria only collected 6 walks to go with their triple and 3 singles.
Cory Jones scattered 8 hits over 7 innings of work allowing 1 run. He struck out 2 and walked 1. Jones had his sinker working with 12 of 15 outs on the ground.
- Joe Donofrio closed out the last two innings with 2 hits, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts.
State College 2, Williamsport 5
Cesar Valera, SS, and Bruce Caldwell, DH, were both 2-for-4 with a double.
Carson Kelly, 3B, was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.
- Ben O'Shea allowed 4 runs on 6 hits in 5 innings. He struck out 3 and walked 1.
Mitch Harris pitched two scoreless innings allowing 1 walk and striking out 1. Harris has started out the season with 7 scoreless innings for State College.
