Yesterday's Box Scores


Patrick Wisdom

Wisdom was 2-for-4 with a double and a homer in Springfield's 8 - 1 victory. He also started a 5-4 double play to help Springfield out of a 2-on-no-out jam in the top of the 6th. For more on Wisdom's revived prospect status, check out Eric "Fourstick" Johnson's farewell article.

Mike Ohlman

Ohlman was 3-for-4 with a double and a homer as well. He and Wisdom remain tied for the team lead with 10 HRs a piece. Ohlman was acquired by the Cardinals before the season to boost their catching depth, receiving him from the Orioles for cash considerations. Ohlman has not disappointed, as he's mashing .297/.373/..479 at Springfield this season. He's a smidge old for the level, at 24, but he's doing all he can to merit a shot at the next level.

Carson Kelly

Continuing with recently highlighted prospects, Kelly hit his 5th homer and threw out a baserunner. He was 2-for-4 overall, bringing his line up to .180/.233/.272. For more on his prospect status, see John Nagel's intro article.

Daniel Poncedeleon

After being touched upon in yesterday's DFR, Poncedeleon continued his success by throwing eight scoreless innings, striking out four, walking none, and allowing just six hits (none for extra bases). This was his 3rd appearance for Palm Beach this season, following his promotion from Low-A, and he has a 1.40 ERA and 11:3 K:BB ratio in 19 1/3 IP.

Luis Perdomo

The MLB Futures Game representative struck out 8 over 7 IP, walking none while throwing a "CG". He surrendered just one run on seven hits. Perdomo is sporting a 2.67 ERA in his second effort at Low-A, almost down to half of last season's 5.05 ERA at that level.

Edmundo Sosa, Magneuris Sierra, Chris Chinea

All three had multi-hit games for the Johnson City Cardinals. They batted 2-3-4 in the lineup, and scored 4 of the team's 7 runs. Sosa had his second homer of the season, and Chinea finished the game a dinger short of the cycle.


Today's games feature the once undrafted Zach Petrick, who has a solid 3.72 ERA this season and improved peripherals from last year, and also former 1st round pick Luke Weaver who has a 2.50 ERA in his first full pro season with a K:BB ratio near three (38:13).
