Starting out with some draft signings, the Cardinals came to agreements with top pick Scott Hurst, 4th-rounder Kramer Roberston, and 8th-rounder Zach Jackson.

Oklahoma City 2, Memphis 7

  • Chad Huffman - 1-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB
  • Jose Adolis Garcia - 1-4, 2B, 2 K
  • Harrison Bader - 2-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, K
  • Breyvic Valera - 2-4, 2 R
  • Luke Weaver - (W) 6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K

Probably the most exciting part of this Cardinals season has been watching the prospects advance through the Minors. We’re seeing a few more at Memphis that are pushing for playing time with the big club. Harrison Bader looks like a future Cardinals outfielder, whether or not he’s a starter or a 4th outfielder remains to be seen. But, he’s doing everything he can to carve out a spot—and soon. Bader’s home run tonight puts him at 13 for the season and he’s slashing a solid .290/.348/.493. Luke Weaver deserves a spot in St. Louis. He does not have a whole lot left to prove at AAA. Either limiting his innings and sticking him in the big league ‘pen or sticking Wacha in the ‘pen and allowing Weaver to start seems like a no-brainer at this point.

Palm Beach 5, St. Lucie 2 (Game 1)

  • Darren Seferina - 1-2, 3B, 2 R, 2 BB
  • Randy Arozarena - 0-2, R, 2 RBI
  • Jose Godoy - 2-3, 2B, RBI
  • Andy Young - 0-2, RBI
  • Luke Dykstra - 1-3
  • Connor Jones - (W) 5.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 K

Palm Beach 5, St. Lucie 3 (Game 2)

  • Darren Seferina - 3-3, R, 2B, RBI, BB
  • Randy Arozarena - 0-2, 2 RBI, BB
  • Thomas Spitz - 2-3, R, BB, K
  • Leobaldo Pina - 0-3, R, BB, 2 K
  • Andy Young - 0-3, K
  • Jeremy Martinez - 1-2, R
  • Junior Fernandez - (W) 5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, BB, 4 K
  • Jacob Evans - 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, BB, K

I feel like we always talk about the big name prospects, like Fernandez, so I am going to mix it up a little and talk about Jacob Evans. He is a solid lefty from the University of Oklahoma and he’s consistently put up good numbers. When I saw him pitch in college, I thought he could be a solid lefty-reliever or a LOOGY and he’s done nothing to dispel that notion. In case you follow Tim Tebow, he hit his first HR since being promoted to St. Lucie off of Junior Fernandez.

Beloit 3, Peoria 0

  • Dylan Carlson - 0-2, BB, K
  • Nick Plummer - 0-2, K
  • Austin Sexton - 1.0 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, K
  • Frederis Parra - (L) 4.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 BB, K

Not a whole lot going on in this game for the Chiefs. The starting lineup only managed 3 hits. Austin Sexton started the game and only went one inning. Frederis Parra picked up the slack but took the loss.

Auburn 1, State College 7

  • Evan Mendoza - 3-4, 2B, 2 RBI
  • Ricardo Bautista - 0-4, 2 RBI
  • Bryce Denton - 0-4, K
  • Zach Kirtley - 0-2, 2 R, 2 BB
  • Anthony Shew - (W) 5.2 IP, 5 H, R, BB, 8 K

Evan Mendoza has gotten off to a nice start in pro ball. Zach Kirtley got a hit in his first professional at bat and has since gone 0-14. However, he did walk twice. Anthony Shew now has a sterling 0.85 ERA in two games for State College.

Greeneville 3, Johnson City 6

  • Chase Pinder - 0-4, BB
  • Wood Myers - 3-5 , R, 2 2B, RBI, K
  • Wadye Ynfante - 2-3, R, 2B, RBI, BB, K
  • Brady Whalen - 0-2, BB, K
  • Carlos Talavera - 1-3, 2 R, 2B, BB
  • Irving Lopez - 2-4, R, RBI, K
  • Franyel Casadilla - 4.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 3 K
  • Jake Walsh - (W) 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, K

GCL Cardinals 4, GCL Mets 5

  • Carlos Soto - 0-4, 3 K
  • Leandro Cedeno - 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 4 RBI
  • Terry Fuller - 1-3, K

Terry Fuller picks up his first pro hit!
