Memphis was only farm-club to win as the system went 1-3 W-L overall. Maikel Cleto tossed a 5-hitter through 6 innings of impressive scoreless work. Kolten Wong with another multi-hit game. Big southpaw Kevin Siegrist made his Triple-A debut in a brief relief stint.
Kolten Wong smacked three singles in 5 at bats and stolen his 5th bag of the season continuing to punish the ball when he makes contact. Wong is currently on a 10 game hit streak in that span he's hit .457/.500/.826 (21-for-46) with 3 HR's and 5 RBI's.
Ryan Jackson hit an RBI single and walked.
Brock Peterson was 2-5 with a double.
Jermaine Curtis hit an RBI two sacker and walked.
Rob Johnson was 3-4 with a home run and 3 RBI's.
Maikel Cleto pitched 6 impressive shutout innings by only walking three and striking out 2. This is a very encouraging outing for Cleto whom threw 91 pitches-55 for strikes that's a good ratio for a guy desperate to find control.
Kevin Siegrist pitched 2 scoreless innings while striking out 2 in his Triple-A debut. If Siegrist dominates Triple-A hitters like he did Double-A hitters you could see him in the big leagues before long if a need for a left handed specialist opens up.
Eric Fornataro pitched a scoreless 9th in relief.
Mike O'Neill singled twice. Seems like every night he contributes getting on base either walking more than once or singling to get on base what he does exceptionally well.
Chris Swauger was 2-4 with a double.
Xavier Scruggs hit an RBI double.
Starlin Rodriguez went deep for the 4th time this season it was a 2-run shot. Nice to see him using that bat speed to hit for power.
