Memphis 9 Omaha 4


  • Greg Garcia (2B): 1-4, R, 2 K
  • Randal Grichuk (CF): 2-5, 2B, 2 R, RBI
  • Oscar Taveras (DH): 0-3, K
  • Tommy Pham (DH/PR): 0-1, K
  • Stephen Piscotty (RF): 1-5, R, RBI
  • Scott Moore (1B): 2-4, 2 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB
  • Joey Butler (LF): 2-4, HR, R, 3 RBI, BB
  • Boone Whiting (SP): 4 IP, 5 H, 2 BB, 2 R, 0 ER, 6 K
  • Lee Stoppelman (RP): 1 IP, H, ER, BB, K


  • Memphis actually trailed this game 4-3 in the 9th before erupting for 6 runs in the top of the frame.
  • Whiting had a solid, if brief, second outing of the season. He was able to scatter 7 base runners over four innings, and racked up 6 strike outs along the way.
  • Oscar Taveras started at DH and was lifted for Tommy Pham in the 8th. The Memphis DH's combined to go 0-4 with 2 K's.
  • Joey Butler started in left in place of Taveras and was the hitting star, with a home run and 3 RBI.
  • It's early, but the so far Lee Stoppelman has not looked great.

Corpus Christi 7 Springfield 6 (11 Innings)


  • Mike O'Neill (DH): 2-4, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 K, SB
  • James Ramsey (RF): 3-6, 2 2B, 2 R
  • Patrick Wisdom (PH/3B): 0-2, K
  • David Popkins (RF): 1-4, 2B, BB
  • Aledmys Diaz (SS): 4-5, 2B, 3B, R, 3 RBI, CS
  • Kurt Heyer (SP): 7 IP, 4 H, ER, BB, 4 K
  • Ronnie Shaban (RP): 0.1 IP, 4 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, K
  • Springfield led 5-1 in the 9th, Ronnie Shaban was on the hook for all 5 runs the Hooks scored to take the lead. Springfield came back to tie it in the bottom of the frame before losing in extras.
  • Aledmys Diaz started at short, and had what is almost certainly his best day as a pro, the only negative was a caught stealing.
  • Mike O'Neill had 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. He struck out two more times in a game than did James Ramsey. OK.
  • Kurt Heyer did his thing, limiting both walks and strikeouts.
  • Needless to say it was a tough outing for Ronnie Shaban.

Bradenton 4 Palm Beach 3


  • Charlie Tilson (CF): 1-3, BB
  • Breyvic Valera (DH): 2-4, RBI
  • Jacob Wilson (2B): 1-4, K
  • Anthony Garcia (LF): 1-4, HR, R, RBI
  • Kyle Helisik (SP): 7 IP, H, BB, 3 K
  • Sam Tuivailala (RP): IP, H, 3 K
  • Robert Stock (RP): 0.2 IP, H, 2 ER, 2 BB
  • Thomas Lee (RP): IP, 3 H, 2 R, ER, 2 K, HR

  • Another ugly bullpen meltdown in the late innings. Robert Stock gave up 2 runs in the 8th, Thomas Lee came in to clean up the mess, and ended up surrendering a walk-off shot in the 9th. The silver lining for the bullpen was Sam Tuivailala striking out the side.
  • Kyle Helisik held Bradenton to 1 hit over 7 innings.
  • Anthony Garcia hit his first homer of the season, which was the only extra base hit for Palm Beach on the night.

Peoria 1 Dayton 0


  • C.J. McElroy (CF): 2-4, 2B
  • Mason Katz (2B): 0-3, R, BB, K
  • Carson Kelly (C): 0-4
  • Kenneth Peoples-Walls (DH): 1-3
  • Ronald Castillo (RF): 1-3, RBI
  • Nick Petree (SP): 5 IP, 5 BB, 6 K
  • Nick Petree only allowed 2 hits, but was all over the place walking 5 and striking out 6.
  • Carson Kelly had another rough night behind the plate, he allowed 2 stolen bases and had a throwing error.

There are three games on the slate today. Angel Castro starts for Memphis in a day game, and a couple of Gonzaga alums start in the night games; Marco Gonzales for Palm Beach and Arturo Reyes for Peoria.
