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

Fernando Salas sees his shadow, may not return to St. Louis for another 6 weeks despite pitching well in Memphis.

The system went 3-and-2 as Johnson City was rained out. Brock Peterson continued to mash for Memphis and Piscotty powered up in Springfield. Palm Beach nearly became the victim of a no-hitter. Though Helisek pitched well, Peoria couldn't muster much offense either. State College's strong pitching performance was backed by a Cesar Valera home run.

Memphis 6, Iowa 5

  • Danny Stienstra's single in the 2nd inning was the only thing that saved Palm Beach from falling prey to a no-hitter.
  • Ronny Gil and Anthony Garcia walked.
  • Ryan Sherriff was knocked around for 9 hits and 1 walk in 5 innings, resulting in 5 runs. He struck out 3 batters.
  • Travis Miller then surrendered 2 runs on 3 hits and 1 walk in his inning of work.
  • Jordan Swagerty, making an appearance at PB for the first time since 2011, coughed up 4 runs on 3 hits and 1 walk. The only batter he retired was a strikeout.
  • Jay Voss had an identical line to Swagerty, though he walked an extra batter.
  • Aidan Lucas allowed 2 inherited runners to score before he stopped the bleeding with 1.1 innings of scoreless relief; he struck out 2 batters.
  • Cesar Valera (SS) was 1-for-3 with his first home run; he also walked.
  • David Washington doubled.
  • Mason Katz was 1-for-3 with a walk.
  • Trevor Martin and Steven Ramos each singled.
  • Nick Petree had a nice outing, only permitting 1 run to score on 2 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts in 4 innings.
  • Jimmy Reed was even better in that he only allowed 3 hits in 4 innings and struck out 5; he has not been scored upon in his first 9 innings pitched.
  • Brady Adamek allowed 2 hits but no one came across to score against him as he was able to strike out 2 batters.
