Daily Farm Report - 4/8/13

New, comments

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

Memphis 18, New Orleans 2

  • That is not a typo. Memphis scored 3 in the 2nd, 5 in the 5th, 3 in the 7th and 7 in the 8th. They went 18-41 (.439 AVG) with 4 walks and 5 home runs.
  • Kolten Wong was 3-for-5 with a triple.
  • Chad Huffman was 1-for-3 with a home run and a pair of walks.
  • Jamie Romak had what is probably the highlight of his career hitting 3 home runs in 5 at bats.
  • Rob Johnson was 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk.
  • Vance Albitz was 3-for-5.
  • Oscar Taveras also made his debut in one of the less likely of ways. Put in to pinch hit in the 8th, Taveras actually got to bat twice since while Memphis went all the way through the lineup in that inning. He was 1-for-2.
  • Tyler Lyons showed his excellent control with 7 walk-free innings -- though he did hit a batter. For his professional career, he has a 2.4BB/9 walk rate. Last night, he struck out 3 and allowed 2 runs on 7 hits.
  • Eduardo Sanchez pitched a scoreless frame allowing 1 hit and striking out 1.
  • Eric Fornataro allowed 1 hit in a scoreless 9th.

Springfield 2, San Antonio 5

  • Xavier Scruggs was 1-for-2 with a home run and a pair of walks.
  • Starlin Rodriguez had the only extra base hit of the game, a double, in a pinch hitting role.
  • Seth Blair walked 3 in 4 innings of work. He allowed 2 runs on 5 hits while striking out 2.
  • Justin Wright pitched 2 scoreless innings allowing 1 hit and striking out 2.
  • Kevin Siegrist took the loss allowing 2 runs in the 7th inning. He walked 2, allowed 1 hit and struck out 2.

Peoria 4, Beloit 1

  • Patrick Wisdom was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a double.
  • Jacob Wilson was 1-for-4 with a home run.
  • Alex Mejia was 2-for-4.
  • Jordan Walton was 3-for-4.
  • Joe Cuda allowed 1 run over 5 innings. He was tagged for 8 hits and walked 1 while striking out 5.
  • Corey Baker struck out 4 in 2 scoreless innings allowing 2 hits.
  • Zachary Petrick struck out 5 in 2 innings. He allowed 2 hits. Petrick was largely under my radar last season but he struck out 50 in 45.3 IP for Johnson City against just 9 walks.
