Daily Farm Report - 5/27/13

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

Memphis 2, Round Rock 5

  • Kolten Wong was 2-for-5.
  • Jamie Romak was 1-for-4 with his 8th home run of the season.
  • Scott McGregor allowed 7 hits in 5 innings for 4 runs. He struck out 5.
  • Ramon Delgado struck out 2 in 2 innings of work.
  • Kevin Siegrist allowed one unearned run after Jermaine Curtis' error. Siegrist walked 1, allowed 1 hit and struck out 1.
  • Marc Rzepczynski struck out 2 and allowed 1 hit in a scoreless 9th. Rzepczynski has not been pitching particularly well since his demotion. In 14.2 innings, he's walked 9 and struck out 11.

Springfield 8, Midland 10

  • James Ramsey was 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles and his first error in Springfield.
  • Thomas Pham was 2-for-4 and was HBP.
  • Adam Melker was 2-for-2 with a double, HBP and a walk.
  • Anthony Ferrara was touched up for 5 runs in 4 innings. His ERA over 43 innings now sits at 6.23. Ferrara allowed 5 hits and 3 walks while striking out 3. It will be interesting to see if the Cardinals try him out of the pen at some point. That conversion has been a huge boon to Kevin Siegrist's MLB prospects.
  • Scott Gorgen allowed 5 runs in 3.2 innings. He was roughed up for 4 hits and 2 home runs while striking out 2. Gorgen never really managed to get things back on track after being sidelined for so long with injuries. He's 26 and is entering his 6th season in the system.
  • The oddity of the game was the number of HBP. While two Cardinal batters were plunked, Ferrara and Gorgen both managed to hit two Midland players apiece.

Palm Beach: No Scheduled Games

Peoria 4, Wisconsin 3 (12 innings)

  • Wisconsin scored 2 in the 12th to go up 3-1. Peoria still managed to pull out the win.
  • Breyvic Valera was 3-for-6. Valera is hitting well (.308) but with an ISO around .060 points, it's mostly an "empty" batting average.
  • Ildemaro Vargas was 2-for-4 with a pair of walks.
  • Jacob Wilson was 3-for-6.
  • Patrick Wisdom was 0-for-2 with three walks. Wisdom continues to maintain a double digit walk rate.
  • Hector Hernandez went 8 strong innings striking out 6. He walked 3 and scattered 5 hits for just 1 run.
  • Zach Petrick struck out 3 and allowed 1 hit in 2 scoreless frames.
  • Joe Donofrio was on the hook for the loss allowing 2 runs in his second inning of work on 3 hits. He struck out 3. Luckily, Peoria was able to pick him up with some help from Wisconsin. During the final inning, Peoria singled, walked, singled and singled before Wisconsin committed multiple throwing errors on the final play to give away the ball game. Donofrio picked up his second win of the season.
