Memphis 4 - New Orleans 3

Notables:
  • Dean Anna (SS): 0-4, 3 K
  • Stephen Piscotty (RF): 1-3, 2 R, 3B
  • Xavier Scruggs (1B): 1-2, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K
  • Ty Kelly (LF): 0-4, K
  • John Gast (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
  • Sam Tuivailala (RP): 1 IP, 2 K
Xavier Scruggs has not slowed down after his hot start, and with 5 HR and both a BB% and K% in the 20s he is not disappointing TTU fans...Ty Kelly's line for the season is now .179/.276/.262...Sam Tuivailala remains unscored upon through 9 IP this year and has struck out 12 and walked 2.

Friday Probables: MEM (Whiting) @ New Orleans (Nicolino)

Northwest Arkansas 7 - Springfield 2

Notables:
  • Charlie Tilson (CF): 1-5, K,
  • Jacob Wilson (2B): 0-4, K
  • Jonathan Rodriguez (1B): 1-3
  • Mike Ohlman (C): 1-3, R, 2B, BB, K
  • Aledmys Diaz (SS): 1-3, R, BB
  • Andrew Morales (SP): 5.1 IP, 12 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
Mike Ohlman provided the only XBH for Springfield...After some of Joe Schwarz's comments on yesterday's DFR I feel obligated to mention Jonathan Rodriguez's line now sits at .338/.385/.508...20 of the 39 NW Arkansas batters who came up to bat reached base.

Friday Probables: SPR (Petree) @ ARK (McGowin)

Palm Beach 7 - Jupiter 2

Notables:
  • C.J. McElroy (CF): 0-4, R, RBI
  • Mason Katz (DH): 1-4, K
  • Luke Voit (1B): 2-3, R, 2B, BB
  • Rowan Wick (RF): 0-4
  • Carson Kelly (C): 1-3, R, BB
  • Ronald Castillo (LF): 1-2, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K
  • Trey Nielsen (SP): 6.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
  • Josh Lucas (RP): 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 K

Louis Linwood Voit's slash line stands at .329/.425/.466 as of yesterday. The Wildwood native also has BB% and K% rates above and below 15% respectively. He is 24 and taking a second crack at the Florida State League, if he keeps hitting and Springfield continues to struggle like they have, the Cardinals may want to push him just to see if there is anything there...The Games Since Rowan's Wick's Last Strikeout counter stands at 2.

Friday Probables: JUP (Newell) @ PB (Littrell)

Peoria 3 - Beloit 1

Notables:
  • Oscar Mercado (SS): 1-4, R, K, SB
  • Danny Diekroeger (3B): 0-3, K
  • Collin Radack (RF): 1-4, R, RBI, K

  • Blake McKnight (SP): 2 IP
  • Kyle Grana (RP): 1 IP, 1 BB, 2 K
Blake Drake's homer last night was his second home run and 3rd extra base hit in his last three game...Small Ball Oscar Mercado struck again last night. In the 8th he singled, stole second, advanced on a sac bunt and scored on a single up the middle...Mercado's stolen base was his Midwest League leading 11th...The home run Dan Poncedeleon gave up last night was the first he had allowed as a professional baseball player. He has struck out 22 and walked 5 through 23.1 IP this season...In his first crack at full-season ball Kyle Grana has walked 4 and struck out 16 in 9.1 IP.
