A daily recap of the minor league players in the Cardinals' system.

This is Seth Maness probably not walking a batter.

Big scores at the top and bottom of the games tonight along with a bevy of home runs. Ryan Jackson makes some noise and Chris Corrigan leads Springfield's shutout.

Memphis 6, Las Vegas 19

  • A bit of a bloodbath for Memphis pitchers. Both Nick Additon and Kevin Siegrist allowed 6 ER in just 1.1 IP.
  • Micahel Blazek fared marginally better allowing 2 ER in 1.2 inning. He walked 2 and allowed 4 hits while striking out 2.
  • Anderson Gerdel allowed 1 run on 1 hit in 1 inning of work. He struck out 1.
  • Ryan Jackson was 3-for-5 with a home run and a double. It would be supremely ironic if he forced his way into playing time this year via his bat rather than his glove.
  • Brock Peterson was 2-for-5 with a home run.
  • Chad Huffman also went yard.
  • Colin Walsh was 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and a walk. Walsh had a huge season at the plate last year for Quad Cities. The bat will continue to move him up the ladder but the question of position remains.
  • Mike O'Neill doubled and walked.

Springfield 1, Binghamton 0

Palm Beach 4, St. Lucie 6

Peoria 11, Savannah 8

  • Robert Stock allowed 1 run in a messy 2.1 innings. He walked 2 and was tagged for 4 hits while striking out 1.
  • Jhonny Polanco suffered through an equally messy outing allowing 3 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 3 in 2.1 innings.
  • David Washington was 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk.
  • Anthony Melchionda was 3-for-5 with a double and two triples.
  • Bruce Caldwell doubled and homered.
  • Adam Lewis was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk.
  • Lance Jeffries was 1-for-3 with a double and a HBP.
  • Michael Swinson was 1-for-2 with a double, 2 walks and a HBP. He stole 3 bases.
