Daily Farm Report - 6/26/13

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

The system went 3-and-2 with the lower rungs of the farm providing wins and exciting performances. Cory Jones pitched well for Peoria. Jimmy Bosco, the Cardinals' 13th round pick in this year's draft, hit for the first cycle in State College's history. And Alexander Reyes, the 18-year-old Dominican pitcher signed by the Cardinals last December, struck out 11 in 6 innings for Johnson City.

Memphis: No Scheduled Game

Springfield 1, Corpus Christi 13

  • Springfield managed two extra base hits, which were doubles for Chris Swauger and Stephen Piscotty, who singled as well.
  • Cody Stanley was 3-for-4.
  • Tyler Rahmatulla singled and walked.
  • James Ramsey, Jake Lemmerman, and Luis Mateo singled. Lemmerman committed his 15th error on the season.
  • Richard Catillo had a nightmarish start, getting bludgeoned for 10 runs (all earned) on 10 hits (2 HRs), 2 walks, and 1 strikeout in just 2.2 innings. Yikes.
  • Corey Baker soaked up 4.1 innings but allowed 3 runs on 6 hits (2 HRs), 1 walk, and 3 strikeouts.
  • Jose Almarante struck out 1 and allowed 1 hit in his inning of work.
  • In the leadoff spot, Colin Walsh doubled and walked.

  • Danny Stienstra and Anthony Garcia both singled and walked.
  • David Popkins and Alex Mejia singled.
  • Matt Williams drew a walk.
  • Tyler Melling allowed 4 runs in 5.1 innings, but only 1 was earned; he gave up 5 hits (1 HR) and struck out 1 batter.
  • Danny Miranda pitched 1.2 scoreless innings that included 1 hit and 1 walk.
  • Aidan Lucas was saddled with the loss for allowing 3 runs on 5 hits in the 8th inning.
  • Peoria couldn't muster any extra base hits but still managed to turn 6 singles and 1 walk into 3 runs, which was good enough to win this one behind Peoria's pitching and defense (turned 3 double plays).
  • Those six singles belonged to Breyvic Valera, Ildemaro Vargas, Jordan Walton, Jeremy Schaffer, Charlie Tilson, and Gerwuins Velazco. Velazco also drew a walk.
  • Despite walking more batters (3) than he struck out (2), Cory Jones only allowed 1 run on 2 hits in 6 innings. He retired more batters via airouts (7) than groundouts (5).
  • Joe Donofrio allowed 2 hits in a scoreless inning that included 1 strikeout.
  • Joseph Scanio pitched a scoreless inning that included 1 hit and 1 walk.
  • Dixon Llorens was credited with his 6th save for pitching a scoreless ninth; he struck out 1 batter.

  • Michael Schulze (3B) doubled twice and walked once.
  • Luke Voit (C) and Matthew Young (RF) each doubled.
  • Several players (Cesar Valera, Bruce Caldwell, Ronald Castillo, and Steven Ramos) singled. Ramos also stole 2 bases.

  • Stalyn Lopez recorded a strike out but also walked 2 batters.
  • Anderson Gerdel stranded all three runners he inherited; he retired both batters he faced, 1 on a strikeout.
  • Zach Loraine gave up 1 run on 1 hit and 1 walk in 1 inning.
  • Michael Holback didn't allow any runs to cross home plate in his inning, but he flirted with danger by giving up 1 hit and 2 walks; he struck out 1.
