Daily Farm Report - 5/8/13

New, 15 comments

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

The system won one of its three games on the day. Memphis was the lone victor as Wong, Taveras, and Garcia lead the offense to back Maikel Cleto's second start of the season.

Sacramento 2, Memphis 6

  • Adron Chambers was 1-for-3 with a double and walk leading off.
  • Kolten Wong was 2-for-5; both of his hits were doubles and he stole a base (5).
  • Oscar Taveras was 2-for-4 with a double.
  • Greg Garcia was 1-for-2 with a double, 2 walks, and a stolen base (3); his OBP is now up to .344 despite a lowly .238 batting average that's been dragged down by a .271 BABIP (compared to career .330 BABIP).
  • Jamie Romak walked twice and Jermaine Curtis singled once.
  • In another start, Maikel Cleto threw 5 scoreless innings of 1 hit ball. Though the results were nice, the process still needs some work as he struck out 6 but walked 5. He has walked 25% of the batters he has faced this season. That's not good.
  • Barret Browning struck out 2 in 1.2 innings that included 3 hits but zero runs.
  • Eric Fornataro gave up 2 runs on 2 hits (1 HR) in 1.1 innings.
  • Eduardo Sanchez threw a perfect 9th inning.
Springfield: No scheduled game

Peoria 1, Beloit 6

  • Charlie Tilson was 1-for-4 with a walk in the leadoff spot.
  • In the DH spot, Carson Kelly had 3 hits that included a double, Peoria's only extra-base hit on the night.
  • Casey Rasmus was 2-for-4.
  • Patrick Wisdom and Michael Swinson each added 1 walk.
  • Josh Lucas was probably lucky to only allow 3 runs in 4 innings. He was reached for 9 hits (1 HR), 1 walk, and only had 1 strikeout.
  • Jhonny Polanco struck out 7 in 3 innings but also gave up 4 hits (2 HR) and 2 walks that resulted in 3 runs.
  • Joe Donofrio struck out 2 in his inning of work.
