New, 10 comments

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

The system went 1-and-3 on the day. Memphis had the day off. Adam Melker powered Springfield to a win. Anthony Garcia continued his struggle to make contact in Palm Beach. Peoria had a miserable day offensively.

Memphis: No Scheduled Game

Springfield 5, Tulsa 3

  • Mike O'Neill was 3-for-4 in the lead-off spot. He was caught stealing for the second time this season.
  • Adam Melker was 3-for-4 with 2 HRs (3, 4).
  • James Ramsey, Jake Lemmerman, and Cody Stanley each singled and walked. Ramsey stole his first base in Springfield.
  • Starlin Rodriguez had a pinch-hit single.
  • Richard Castillo pitched 7 strong innings that included 1 run on 4 hits, 2 walks, and 1 strikeout.
  • Nick Greenwood allowed 2 runs on 3 hits and only recorded 2 outs.
  • Keith Butler was credited with his 6th save by striking out 2 against 1 hit and 1 walk in 1.1 innings.
  • The pitching staff kept the ball on the ground (17-1 groundout-flyout ratio) and the defense supported them by turning four double plays.

Lakeland 5, Palm Beach 1

Peoria 0, Kane County 4

  • Peoria's entire offense only reached base 5 times via 3 hits and 2 walks despite only striking out twice.
  • Charlie Tilson's double was the lone extra-base hit.
  • Casey Rasmus and Nick Martini singled.
  • Jordan Walton and Breyvic Valera walked.
  • Joe Cuda struck out an impressive 9 batters in 6.1 innings but still gave up 3 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits. He also had a strong 6-1 groundout-flyout ratio.
  • Joseph Scanio was lucky to only give up 1 run as he allowed 4 hits and 2 walks. He permitted one of Cuda's runners to score as well.
