Omaha 5 Memphis 1

Notables:

  • Dean Anna (SS): 2-4, K
  • Ty Kelly (LF): 1-3, 2B, BB
  • Stephen Piscotty (RF): 0-3
  • Cody Stanley (DH): 1-4, RBI
  • John Gast (SP): 5 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
  • Sam Tuivailala (RP): 1 IP, H, R, IBB
  • Mitch Harris (RP): 0.2, BB, K
Former Cardinal farmhand Clayton Mortenson tossed 6 shutout innings and scattered three hits for the Storm Chasers. Dean Anna continues to hit for the Redbirds and Ty Kelly's double will perhaps get him going after some scuffles to start the season.

Gary Brown still does not have a hit since joining the Cardinals in the last week of spring training.

Wednesday Probables: Omaha (Brooks) @ Memphis (Gonzales)

San Antonio 3 Springfield 0

Notables:

  • Charlie Tilson (CF): 1-4, SB
  • Aledmys Diaz (SS): 0-4
  • Breyvic Valera (3B): 2-4
  • Anthony Garcia (LF): 1-4
  • Nick Petree (SP): 5 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, HR
  • Chris Thomas (RP): 2 IP, 2 H, K
Missions starter Justin Hancock tossed seven scoreless innings and never allowed a Springfield runner past second base on the evening. Valera played his third position in as many days and was the only Springfield hitter to reach base twice -- no Cardinal drew a walk in this game, which speaks to the level of aggressiveness among the hitters on this roster: The Missions pitching staff needed just 106 pitches to shutout Springfield.

Springfield is off on Wednesday.

Palm Beach 7 Lakeland 1

Notables:

  • Juan Herrera (SS): 1-4, R, 2B, 2 K, E
  • Bruce Caldwell (3B): 3-5, 3 R, 2 2B, K
  • Luke Voit (1B): 2-4, 2 R, BB, 2 K
  • Rowan Wick (RF): 1-4, R, 2B, RBI, K
  • Carson Kelly (C): 2-4, 2B, 4 RBI, K
  • Mason Katz (DH): 1-4, RBI, 3 K
  • Jimmy Reed (SP): 5.2 IP, 4 H, ER, 2 BB, 6 K
Bruce Caldwell is off to a fast start for Palm Beach, hitting .476 through the first 6 games. Carson Kelly's two hit effort got him above the Mendoza line on the young season and also drove in 4 of the 7 Palm Beach runs. Lefty Jimmy Reed pitched well into the 6th inning, holding the Flying Tigers without an extra base hit.

Wednesday Probables: Palm Beach (TBD) @ Lakeland (Maciel)

Peoria 7 Wisconsin 1

Notables:

  • Magneuris Sierra (CF): 0-5, K
  • Oscar Mercado (DH): 2-5, 2 R, 2 SB
  • Justin Ringo (1B): 3-5, R, 3B, 3 RBI
  • Collin Radack (RF): 4-5, R, SB, RBI
  • Darren Seferina (2B): 2-4, RBI, K
  • Andrew Sohn (SS): 1-4, R, E
  • Will Anderson (SP): 6 IP, 7 H, BB, 6 K
  • Zach Loraine (RP): 1 IP, BB
Will Anderson picked up where he left off in 2014, scattering 7 hits, striking out 6 and generally in control of the Timber Rattler bats for most of the contest. With Carlos Leal in the lineup at DH and Gregory McCall behind the plate for Wisconsin, the Chiefs lineup took advantage on the bases, swiping 5 bases with Seferina the only Chief getting thrown out.

Magneuris Sierra is off to a tough start to the season, with just two hits in his first 21 PA's, no walks, and 6 strikeouts. He'll eventually adjust, but it might be an ugly first couple of months as it was for Rowan Wick in 2014. He's been leading off for the Chiefs so far and it might make sense to drop him down in the order for a week or so and let him get his legs under him.

Wednesday Probables: Peoria (Perdomo) @ Cedar Rapids (Batts)
