The Memphis Redbirds game between the Colorado Springs Sky Sox was postponed and rescheduled for a doubleheader on Friday evening; the mound matchup for the front game will be the one that was originally slated for Thursday.
Aside from that, it was a solid day down on the farm:
Double-A: Springfield 6, Travelers 3
Austin Gomber (SP): 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Jose Adolis Garcia (RF): 3-4, 2 2Bs, HR, 2 RBIs, R
Nick Martini (LF): 2-3, 2 2Bs, 3 RBIs, 2 R
Big days at the dish from corner outfielders Adolis Garcia and Nick Martini complemented Austin Gomber’s quality start as the Cardinals knocked off the Travelers Thursday evening, 6-3.
Garcia unloaded on his third home run of the season, while Martini plated his eighth runs of the season. Gomber’s six innings of one-run ball were definitely welcomed, considering he had been roughed up for five runs over his last five frames.
High-A: Palm Beach 3, Yankees 2
Zac Gallen (SP): 6 2⁄3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
Randy Arozarena (CF): 2-4, 2B, 3B, RBI, R
Zac Gallen’s sharpness on the mound gave Palm Beach just enough of an edge to squeak by the Yankees on Thursday, 3-2.
Gallen dazzled with eight punchouts over 6 2⁄3 frames of one-run ball walking just one batter in his work. On the offensive side, Randy Arozarena captivated box scores with his 2-4 day, smacking a double and triple in.
Class-A: Wisconsin 11, Peoria 8
Ronnie Williams (SP): 4 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
Tommy Edman (SS): 3-5, 2B, 3B, 2 R
Andrew Knizer (DH): 2-5, 2B, HR, 2 RBIs, 2 R
What started out as a fairly okay evening for Chiefs starter Ronnie Williams turned in to an unraveled Peoria bullpen, as the Chiefs relievers combined to six runs over the final four innings, including two home runs off the bat of Monte Harrison.
On the Chiefs’ side of things, shortstop Tommy Edman finished the game just a single shy of the circle,
