Daily Farm Report: Leone Implodes, Palm Beach Rallies

Recapping Wednesday’s action down on the farm.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The big league club won it’s 8th straight game last night, giving them 6 straight series wins. The farm teams didn’t fare as well on Wednesday, going 3-4 on the day.

New Orleans Baby Cakes 10 at Memphis Redbirds 6

Connor Jones (SP): 3 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 6 BB, 3 K’s

Tommy Edman (2B): 2-5, HR, 2 RBI, R

Carson Kelly (C): 2-2, RBI, BB, R

Edmundo Sosa (3B): 1-5, 2B, 2 RBI

The Redbirds and Baby Cakes kept the game close early, heading into the fifth inning tied 4-4. The Baby Cakes broke the stalemate with an offensive surge in the top of the fifth. A leadoff walk and a pair of single loaded the bases against Dominic Leone. Leone nearly escaped trouble, striking out one and inducing a pop out, but got burned for four runs on a Jonathan Rodriguez grand slam. New Orleans held a commanding 8-4 lead.

Memphis began to chip away in the bottom of the seventh. With runners on first and second and one out, Carson Kelly lined a single to center that scored Alex Mejia. The Redbirds added another run in the bottom of the eighth on a Mejia RBI single. The rally would end there, however.

Memphis is now 74-48 on the season.

San Antonio Missions 8 at Springfield Cardinals 3

Casey Meisner (SP): 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 1 K’s

Blake Drake (RF): 2-5, HR, RBI, R

Johan Mieses (LF): 1-4, 2B, RBI, R

John Nogowski (1B): 3-4, R

Springfield let this one slip away late. After entering the bottom of the sixth trailing 1-0, the Cardinals offense got things going on a John Nogowski one-out single. Johan Mieses then doubled to left to score Nogowski. In the next at bat, Chase Pinder singled to center and Mieses came all the way in to score. 2-1 Springfield.

The Cardinals got into trouble in the top of the ninth. Seth Elledge toed the rubber and got two quick outs via fly out and strikeout. One run up and one out away from a victory, Elledge gave the Missions some life by walking Hudson Potts. In the next at bat, Elledge struck out Josh Naylor but a passed ball allowed Naylor to take first. A pair of single would then put San Antonio up 3-2. Derian Gonzalez replaced Elledge but couldn’t stop the bleeding. The Missions left the top of the ninth leading 8-2. Springfield put up one run in the bottom of the frame, but it wasn’t nearly enough.

Springfield is now 54-68.

Palm Beach Cardinals 6, Tampa Tarpons 4

Jake Walsh (SP): 4 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 4 K’s

Stefan Trosclair (LF): 3-4, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, R

Connor Capel (RF): 1-4, 2B, RBI, R

Elehuris Montero (3B): 2-4, 2B, R

While the Springfield squad fell to a late rally, Palm Beach put on one of their own to overcome Tampa.

The Tarpons led the Cardinals 4-3 heading into the sixth inning. In the bottom of the frame, outfielder Stefan Trosclair homered to tie the game up 4-4.

After a scoreless seventh inning, Palm Beach rallied in the bottom of the eighth. The offense got things started with a Ryan McCarvel one-out walk. McCarvel advanced on a wild pitch before scoring on a Conner Capel double to left. Capel then came around to score on a Trosclair double to center. Palm Beach would hold on to the 6-4 lead.

Palm Beach is now 66-50.

Williamsport Crosscutters 5 at State College Spikes 3

Brady Whalen (1B): 1-4, HR, RBI, R

Stanley Espinal (DH): 1-4, RBI

State College and Williamsport traded runs early, heading into the fourth tied 2-2. Spikes starter Diego Cordero got into trouble in the top of the fourth, beginning with a leadoff ground-rule double. After a single put runners on the corners, a double to left fielder Lars Nootbaar scored the go-ahead run. Another would be added on a single to center.

The Spikes responded in the bottom of the fourth with a run of their own. With two outs and two on, a fielding error allowed Kevin Woodall Jr. to come in and score.

The Spikes wouldn’t score any more runs. They allowed one more in the top of the ninth and ultimately fell to the Crosscutters 5-3.
