Affiliates go 3-1 on the day behind some excellent pitching performances, all by non-prospects.

Garcia had a bad night at the plate for Memphis, but I don't care so here is a picture of his walk off HBP...

Memphis 6 Omaha 2

Notables:
  • Greg Garcia (SS): 0-4, K
  • Randal Grichuk (DH): 0-3, BB, 2 K
  • Oscar Taveras (CF): 0-4
  • Stephen Piscotty (LF): 1-4, R, K, SB (5)
  • Shane Robinson (RF): 3-3, 2 R, BB
  • Xavier Scruggs (1B): 2-4, R, 2B, 3B, 4 RBI, K
  • Pete Kozma (2B): 0-2, BB, K
  • Angel Castro (SP): 7 IP, 6 H, ER, 4 K
  • Eric Fornataro (RP): 1 IP, 2 H, ER, BB
  • David Aardsma (RP): 1 IP, H, 2 K
Notes:
  • It's going to be interesting to see how many starts Greg Garcia gets at SS, especially while sharing the roster with Pete Kozma. More starts for Garcia at short would indicate that he's likely going to get a shot as the utility infielder soon as well as being a good indicator of the future of Kozma in the organization.
  • Solid game for Xavier Scruggs, who's been playing well as of late, with three multi-hit  games in his last 10 starts and five extra base hits over that span as well

Springfield 7 Arkansas 4

Notables:
  • Mike O'Neill (LF): 2-4, 2 R, 3B, RBI, BB
  • Jacob Wilson (2B): 1-4, 2B, RBI, BB, K
  • Cody Stanley (C): 0-2, R, RBI, 2 BB, K
  • Jonathan Rodriguez (DH): 0-3, R, RBI, K
  • Patrick Wisdom (3B): 0-4, RBI, 2 K
  • Rafael Ortega (CF): 3-4, 2 R, 2 SB (8)
  • David Popkins (RF): 1-4, 2 K
  • Marco Gonzales (SP): 5 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
Notes:
  • Gonzales struggled to find the strike zone all night, throwing only 56 of his 90 pitches for strikes. Even with his normally pinpoint control absent, he was still able to get through 5 innings while allowing just a pair of runs and keep his team in the game. It's good to see pitching prospects muddle through when they don't have their best stuff or best command -- especially guys like Gonzales who don't have much plus stuff to begin with.
  • Rafael Ortega had his first multi-hit game since April, stole his 7th and 8th bases of the season, and scored a pair of runs to pace the offense from the bottom of the order.

Tampa 3 Palm Beach 2

Notables:
  • Breyvic Valera (2B): 1-4
  • Starlin Rodriguez (RF): 2-4, R, 2B, K
  • Alex Mejia (SS): 2-4, R, 2B, K
  • David Washington (1B): 0-4
  • Luis Perdomo (RP): 3 IP, 2 H, 3 K
