Daily Farm Report - 5/23/13

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

Memphis 9, Salt Lake 7

  • Adron Chambers was 2-for-5 with a home run.
  • Kolten Wong continued his power streak with a 1-for-5 night that included his 4th home run of the season.
  • Jermaine Curtis was 3-for-5 with a double.
  • Jamie Romak was 1-for-3 with a pair of doubles.
  • Nick Additon allowed 9 hits over 6.1 innings for 6 runs while striking out 4. Easily the most astonishing part of that line is the 4 home runs allowed.
  • Between Additon and the opposing starter, Matt Shoemaker, there were 7 home runs allowed in the game.
  • Sam Freeman struck out 2 in 1.2 perfect innings.

Springfield 0, Frisco 1

  • Mike O'Neill was 1-for-3 with a walk. That was the only Springfield hit of the game which also included 4 walks in total.
  • Tim Cooney pitched well for 7 innings allowing just 1 run on 4 hits and a walk. He struck out 7 and almost exclusively kept the ball on the ground. Keep an eye on Cooney as another strike throwing left hander not terribly dissimilar from John Gast and Tyler Lyons. He had a 5:1 K:BB in 55 innings last year and currently has a 6:1 ratio in 54 innings this year.

Palm Beach 9, Brevard County 5

  • Jonathan Rodriguez was 2-for-4 with a double and a home run. Rodriguez has been with the club for 4 seasons now and after some big numbers in the Quad Cities during 2011, he struggled mightily last year at Palm Beach. A repeat season seems to have done him well as he hits for average and continues to get on base at a nice clip (.373). The power still isn't at QC levels but it's held steady since last year.
  • Danny Stienstra was 2-for-5.
  • Anthony Garcia was 0-for-4 with a walk. His average has dipped below .200.
  • Matt Williams was 2-for-4 with a double and a walk.
  • Jesus Montero was 2-for-5 with a double.
  • Cesar Valera was 2-for-4 with a double.
  • The Cardinals went with a bullpen approach using 5 pitchers, none of whom pitched more than 2 innings. The most noteworthy performance belongs to Jose Almarante with 6 strikeouts in his 2 innings while allowing 2 hits.

Peoria 9, Kane County 8 (14 innings)

  • Breyvic Valera was 4-for-5 with 2 walks.
  • Jordan Walton was 2-for-6 with a double. Patrick Wisdom was 2-for-6 with a triple. More importantly, they both earned the dreaded golden sombrero with 4K nights.
  • Silfredo Garcia was lit up for 8 runs (5 earned) on 4 walks and 6 hits in 2.2 innings.
  • Zach Petrick struck out 6 in 2 innings allowing 1 hit and 1 walk.
  • Christopher Thomas pitched a scoreless 13th and 14th inning with 3 strikeouts to pick up the win.
