Triple A: Memphis 4 - Iowa 3

  • Breyvic Valera (LF): 2-4, 3B, 3 RBI
  • Nick Martini (CF): 0-4, K
  • Tyler O’Neill (RF): 1-4, R, HR, RBI
  • Aledmys Diaz (3B): 1-4, 2 K
  • Patrick Wisdom (3B): 1-4, 2 K
  • Kevin Herget (SP): 5.1 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 8 K, 1 HR
  • Andrew Morales (RP): 1 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 K
  • Mark Montgomery (RP): 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 K

Tyler O’Neill’s home run last night was his 8th of the season for Memphis and his 27th of the year. The home run binge he began in late June has followed him from Tacoma. His batting average (and BABIP) have held down his overall line since he arrived in Memphis, but his ISO is up near .250 since joining the Redbirds...Kevin Herget made his 3rd consecutive start for Memphis. He’s been a useful band aid for a Redbirds rotation that has been lost arms to a trade and the Memphis Shuttle...Andrew Morales is going the other direction, he has been converted to a full time reliever and made his PCL debut last night, his third stop this season.

Double A: Springfield 8 - Tulsa 0

  • Oscar Mercado (CF): 1-4, BB, K
  • Tommy Edman (SS): 0-5, K
  • Jose Adolis Garcia (RF): 3-4, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, K
  • Andrew Knizner (C): 2-4, R, 2 2B, RBI
  • Pedro Echemendia (SP):6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K
  • Corey Littrell (RP): 1 IP, 1 H, 1 K
  • Sandy Alcantara (RP): 1 IP, 1 H, 2 K

Adolis Garcia hit his 14th and 15th homers of the year. He’ll be 25 all of next season, and he hasn’t necessarily forced his way into the big league picture this year, but he’s more than held his own in his stateside debut, and depending on what happens with the crowd of outfielders in the high minors he may find himself in the mix for a big league roster spot, or at least a place on the taxi squad...Like Kevin Herget in AAA Pedro Echemendia is a career reliever who is patching a temporary hole in the team's rotation, so the Cardinals were happy to get the 6 innings of scoreless ball...Sandy Alcantara has 5 K's 0 BB, and 2 HB since his "strategic" move to the bullpen. He was at 121 IP before the shift to a relief role, which was one shy of his total from 2016, so there should be plenty of relief innings left in his arm for Springfield or St. Louis.

Class A Advanced: Palm Beach 8 - Jupiter 3

  • Thomas Spitz (LF): 2-4, 2 R, K
  • Chris Chinea (1B): 3-4, R, 2 RBI
  • Andy Young (2B): 1-3, R, RBI, BB, K
  • Jose Godoy (C): 3-4, 2B, 4 RBI
  • Edmundo Sosa (2B): 2-4, R, K
  • Andy Young (3B): 1-4, 2B, RBI
  • Sam Tewes (SP): 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 11 K
  • Derian Gonzalez (RP): 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 K

2016 8th rounder Sam Tewes has pitched at 3 different levels, plus extended spring training after not throwing any professional innnings last season. Last night was likely his best game as a professional, 11 strikeouts easily set a career high for him. Last night's win also gave him back-to-back one run, zero walk outings.

Class A: Peoria 2 - Kane County 1

  • J.R. Davis (2B): 1-4, R, K, SB
  • Kramer Robertson (SS): 2-3, R, 2B, BB, CS
  • Stefan Trosclair (DH): 0-3, 2 K
  • Juan Yepez (1B): 0-3, K
  • Ryan McCarvel (C): 0-3, K
  • Dylan Carlson (RF): 2-3
  • Anhony Shew (SP): 8 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

Last night’s 2-3 brings Dylan Carlson’s season line in Peoria to exactly average...2016 undrafted free agent Anthony Shew now has a 26% K rate and 4.4% BB rate in 53 IP in the Midwest League.

Class A Short-Season: State College 10 - West Virginia 6

  • Scott Hurst (CF): 1-4, RBI, BB, K
  • Josh Lopez (C): 1-5, R
  • Bryce Denton (LF): 1-5, R, 2 K
  • Zach Kirtley (2B): 2-3, 2 R, 2B, RBI, 2 BB, K
  • Brandon Benson (RF): 4-4, 2 R, 2B, 3 RBI
  • Daniel Castano (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 2 BB, 7 K, 2 HR

Rookie: Princeton 8 - Johnson City 7

  • Irving Lopez (2B): 0-4, R, BB, K
  • Brady Whalen (3B): 1-4, R, BB, K
  • Julio Rodriguez (C): 1-5, R, RBI
  • Luis Bandes (1B): 1-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB
  • Imeldo Diaz (SS): 0-2, R, 2 BB, K
  • Walker Robbins (LF): 1-4, R, BB, K
  • Evan Guillory (SP): 6.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Rookie: GCL Nationals 11 - GCL Cardinals 1

  • Jonathan Machado (CF): 0-4, 2 K
  • Terry Fuller (LF): 0-3, 3 K
