Daily Farm Report: O’Neill Continues Power Show

Recapping Monday’s farm action.

Minor League Baseball: Nashville Sounds at Memphis Redbirds Yalonda M. James-USA TODAY Sports

Only the Memphis Redbirds and Springfield Cardinals were in action on Monday. Here’s what happened:

Memphis Redbirds 7, Iowa Cubs 4

Dakota Hudson (SP): 6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K’s

Max Schrock (2B): 3-5, 2B, RBI, 2 R

Tyler O’Neill (LF): 3-5, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 3 R

Preston Guilmet (RP): 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 3 K’s

Starter Dakota Hudson allowed only two runs over six innings of work, lowering his ERA to 3.86 on the season. Hudson continues to be effective despite a low K/9 by generating plenty of weak ground ball contact. Preston Guilmet picked up the save with 2 innings of work. His lone run was a given up on a two-out solo shot in the eighth inning.

Tyler O’Neill had the number of Cub’s starter Jen-Ho Tseng, homering off of him in both the first and third inning. O’Neill’s home run total is up to six on the year. Centerfielder Oscar Mercado also tagged Tseng for a home run in the first. Second basemen Max Schrock is still raking, raising his line to .408/.442/.510 through his first 49 AB’s.

The Memphis Redbirds are now 10-2 out of the gate. They’ll travel north tomorrow to take on the Omaha Stormchasers. Start time is set for 6:35 CST.

Springfield Cardinals 6, Frisco RoughRiders 1

Jake Woodford (SP): 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 5 K’s

Edmundo Sosa (3B): 2-4, 2B, HR, RBI, BB, 2 R

Andrew Knizner (C): 2-3, BB, R

Darren Seferina (2B): 2-3, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, BB, R

Springfield rolled past the Ranger’s affiliate on Monday. Cardinal’s starter Jake Woodford walked four but was able to limit to damage to only one run over five innings. Reliever Chris Ellis closed out the contest, tossing a scoreless ninth and striking out two.

Usual shortstop Edmundo Sosa saw time at third base today, and put up a line befitting a corner infielder. The new leg kick might be clicking for Sosa, which could restore some of the prospect luster that’s faded in recent years. Meanwhile, catcher Andrew Knizner hasn’t missed a beat following up his breakout 2017 campaign. Knizner is slashing .379/.455/.586 with a 1:1 K/BB so far. Springfield will take on Frisco again tomorrow at 11:10 CST.
