Memphis beat El Paso 7 - 4

  • Thomas Pham (CF), 1 for 5, K, R, Outfield Assist
  • Randal Grichuk (LF), 0 for 4, K
  • Stephen Piscotty (RF), 2 for 4, CS
  • Xavier Scruggs (1B), 0 for 3, BB, K, R
  • Pete Kozma (SS), 0 for 4, 2 Ks, Error (Missed Catch)
  • Mike O'Neill (PH), 1 for 1, RBI
  • Marco Gonzales, 6.0 IP, 3 Ks, 0 BBs, 8 Hits, 2 ER
  • Justin Wright, 1.0 IP, 2 Hits, ER
  • Kevin Siegrist, 1.0 IP, BB, K
Notes:

Some interesting opponents in this one, between Tyler Greene at SS (3 for 5), Cameron Maybin in CF (2 for 5), Jeff Francoeur in RF (1 for 3 with a 2B and a WALK?!), Alex Castellanos at 3B (3 for 4 with a 2B), and Andrew Cashner (5 IP, 4 Ks, BB, 3 ER). Strong list of former Cardinals farmhands and MLB players; I just answered so many "Where are they now?" questions that I didn't know I had.

Peoria lost to Beloit 4 - 6

  • Vaughn Bryan (CF), 1 for 3, 2B, R
  • C.J. McElroy (PH-CF), 0 for 2, K, Pinch Hit for Bryan in the 7th
  • Juan Herrerra (SS), 0 for 4, K, RBI
  • Carson Kelly (DH), 1 for 4, K
  • Rowan Wick (RF), 1 for 4, 3 Ks, R
  • Ronald Castillo (LF), K, R, RBI
  • Steve Bean (C), 2 for 4, 2B, K, RBI
  • Alex Reyes, 6 1/3 IP, 10 Ks, BB, 3 Hits, HR, 4 Runs, 2 ERs
  • Kyle Barraclough, 1 1/3 IP, 2 BBs, 0 ER
Notes:

Pretty exciting game from Alex Reyes, with excellent peripherals and a limited number of hits in the game. In his last two starts he has 21 Ks against 3 BBs in 12 1/3 IP.

Bryan was pinch hit for in the middle of his at bat (1 - 2 count), bringing McElroy off the bench for the first time since he hurt himself on a diving catch on Friday.

GCL Cardinals lost to the GCL Mets 3 - 4

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF), 2 for 3, R, CS
  • Edmundo Sosa (SS), 1 for 4, CS
  • Malik Collymore (2B), 0 for 4, 3 Ks
  • Elier Rodriguez (C-1B), 1 for 4, 2B, K, R
  • Jack Flaherty, 4.0 IP, 6 Ks, 2 BBs, 5 Hits, ER
Notes:

For what it's worth, Flaherty has looked pretty fantastic, with 24 Ks against 4 BBs.

Johnson City lost to Bristol 3 - 6

  • Casey Turgeon (2B), 0 for 3, BB
  • Oscar Mercado (SS), 0 for 3, BB, R, Throwing Error
  • Blake Drake (CF), 1 for 4, K
  • Chris Rivera (3B), 1 for 4, 2B, K, RBI
  • Matt Pearce, 5.0 IP, 2 Ks, 0 BBs, 9 Hits, 5 Runs, 4 ER
Notes:

That's Mercado's 28th error this season. The high error totals of shortstops with high defensive reviews is a fascinating aspect of the minor leagues. I've seen it with Kozma and Brendan Ryan and Ryan Jackson, so I'm not particularly concerned, but I am perplexed regarding why it happens.
