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

On the second to last Saturday night on the minor league season in the best system in baseball it went an even 3-3 W-L overall excluding the two lowest short-season clubs. Memphis didn't have enough to steam to pull off a comeback in a loss against Iowa. Jonathan Cornelius delivered a terrific start leading way for Springfield over Tulsa to open the three-game set. Palm Beach won a tight one with Sam Gaviglio appearing in the DFR for the first time in awhile. Peoria was shutout on consecutive nights. State College blanked Auburn behind a awesome outing by Jimmy Reed. Steve Bean had three hits in a Johnson City loss.
