Recapping a rainy weekend on the farm

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Cardinals affiliate teams won eight of ten games over the weekend, with two rain outs (Springfield and Peoria) on Saturday. Peoria attempted to make up their game on Sunday with a doubleheader, but the second game was postponed due to - you guessed it - rain.

With that, here are some notes from the weekend, one that wasn’t a total washout:

-The Redbirds pounded out eleven runs on sixteen hits against the Express on Sunday, with only one spot in the lineup not collecting a hit and six of the spots notching at least two.

-With two home runs on Sunday as part of the Redbirds’ big day, third baseman Paul DeJong is up to four long balls this season.

-Memphis first baseman Luke Voit went 4-for-11 with two homers over the weekend. He has five on the year.

-Chiefs starter Steven Farinaro was sharp against the Kernels on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits and needed only 83 pitches (56 strikes) to do so.

-Ryan Helsley tossed a quality start on Saturday, giving Palm Beach six innings of two-run ball while striking out seven Hammerheads batters.

-Shortstop Tommy Edman cracked a pair of doubles over the weekend, giving him eight two-baggers on the season thus far for Palm Beach.

-In three starts this season, Palm Beach starter Connor Jones owns a 1.13 ERA in sixteen innings of work, including five innings of one-run dominance in his Sunday outing against the Hammerheads.

-Every spot in Springfield’s initial batting order collected a hit on Sunday in the club’s 11-10 win over the Travelers, with only four of the spots not getting two hits.

-Jack Flaherty punched out four more batters and allowed only one earned run on Sunday, giving him 24 strikeouts and a hearty 0.33 ERA in 27 13 innings this season for Springfield.
