Daily Farm Report - 7/10/13

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


The system went 1-and-4 on the night. Michael Wacha toed the rubber for Memphis. Old habits were on display in Seth Blair's start for Springfield. Anthony Garcia and a strong bullpen performance carried Palm Beach to a win. Peoria became the victim of a shutout, and so they lost despite a strong outing by Kyle Helisek. State College had trouble making contact. Johnson City was postponed.

Omaha 8, Memphis 3

  • Ryan Jackson was 4-for-5 leading off.
  • Brock Peterson hit his PCL-leading 21st HR and walked twice.
  • Thomas Pham was 2-for-5 and threw someone out at second base.
  • Jamie Romak, Jermaine Curtis, and Adron Chambers all singled and walked.
  • Michael Wacha pitched 5 innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. He had one more groundout (4) than flyout (3).
  • Nick Greenwood coughed up 4 runs on 6 hits in 2 innings; he struck out 2.
  • Jorge Rondon then allowed 2 more runs (1 earned) in his 2 innings; he struck out 1 and walked 1.
  • Maikel Cleto threw 3 innings in relief for Omaha. Against his former team, he allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. He was bad enough to blow the save but good enough to hold on for a win.
  • Mike O'Neill doubled and stole his 12th base. He also struck out once.
  • Xavier Scruggs hit a HR (22) and walked twice, living up to his TTO reputation.
  • Luis Mateo doubled and struck out three times.
  • Adam Melker and Jake Lemmerman walked. Lemmerman stole his 6th base but committed his 19th error at SS.
  • Ruben Gotay singled.
  • Seth Blair allowed 6 hits and 4 walks in 5 innings, resulting in 5 runs. He struck out and walked an equal amount of batters (4), something he has not been doing as often lately.

  • Heath Wyatt allowed 2 hits (1 HR) in 1.1 innings.
  • Corey Baker walked 1 batter in his scoreless inning.
  • The only offense Peoria could muster was 2 singles (C.J. McElroy and Ildemaro Vargas) and 3 walks (C.J. McElroy, Patrick Wisdom, and Ildemaro Vargas).
  • In addition to his single and walk, McElroy also stole a base (3) and threw someone out at second.
  • Kyle Helisek pitched very well, scattering 8 hits over 7 innings. He only allowed 1 run, struck out 4, and didn't walk anyone.
  • Brady Adamek then struck out 2 in a perfect 8th inning.
  • Cesar Valera had a single and stole a base (3).
  • Mason Katz walked once but struck out 3 times.

Johnson City: Postponed by rain and should play a double-header today.
