Daily Farm Report - 9/2/13

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

Memphis 1, Oklahoma City 2

  • Brock Peterson was 2-for-4 with a double.
  • Vance Albitz was 1-for-3 with a walk.
  • Eric Fornataro got the start and went 6.1 innings. Fornataro is a former starter who had worked almost entirely in relief this year. The constant shuffling of players from Memphis to St. Louis forced the teams hand on a few occasions and Fornataro found himself making his fourth start of the season. He allowed 1 run on 5 hits and 1 walk while striking out 3. Fornataro had 12 groundouts against 2 in the air which is his calling card for being "on" in a start.
  • Lee Stoppelman took the loss allowing 1 run on 2 hits in the 9th inning. Stoppelman failed to record an out allowing a single and a double for OKC to drive in the winning run.

Springfield 4, Tulsa 8

  • Xavier Scruggs was 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs raising his season total to 29.
  • Stephen Piscotty was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. After a slow start in Springfield, Piscotty has ended the season on a high note raising his OPS over .800.
  • Adam Melker was 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles.
  • Zach Petrick had the start and went 5 innings on 81 pitches. He allowed 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 3. Petrick ends the season with incredible numbers including a 4.5/1 K/BB ratio, better than a strikeout an inning, and a slight groundball tendency. He pitched 113 innings split across 3 different levels of competition.
  • Zach Russell was blasted for 5 runs on 6 hits in just an inning of work.

Peoria 4, Kane County 5

  • Breyvic Valera was 2-for-4 with a walk.
  • Nick Martini was 3-for-5 with a home run.
  • Jordan Walton was 2-for-5.
  • Silfredo Garcia allowed 3 runs (1 earned) in 5 innings of work. He struck out 2, walked 1 and allowed 7 hits.
  • Dixon Llorens had a rare off night and wound up taking the loss. He allowed 1 run in the 9th on 3 hits and a walk. He struck out a batter for his only recorded out. Llorens has spent the whole season in Peoria despite impressive numbers. It will be interesting to see where the club places him in 2014.

State College 6, Jamestown 4

  • Jimmy Bosco, LF, was 3-for-5 with a double and a walk.
  • While Bosco was the only player with multiple hits, State College tallied up significant offense as a group. They had 8 hits and a whopping 10 walks on the night.
  • Arturo Reyes struck out 2 and walked 2 in 5 innings. He allowed 2 runs on 6 hits.
  • Mitch Harris struck out 2 in 2 innings. He allowed 1 hit and 2 walks.
