8/26 Minor Athletics

This is Dan crossing his fingers that this post does not falter once again. It was another frustrating night for our boys in the minors--but there were a couple fresh faces in the box scores. 

SAC---They had an interesting night. I was surprised when I looked at the box score and I see our boy C Gon in the line-up, just after I had seen him on tv against the Angels. Anyway--here are the two box line scores. and a few highlights. 

From April 6, 2008

 Final    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9      R   H   E

I'll combine stats where appropriate. 

Sweeney, M 1B: 2-3, 2B, 2 RBI, SO, .200

Murton LF: 3-7, R, 2 2B, RBI, BB, SO, .283

Baisley DH/3B: 4-6, R, 2B, RBI, SO, .295

Cunningham RF: 2-4, R, 2B, .339

Player IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Knox 0.2 1 0 0 1 0 0 0.00
Mazzaro (W, 1-0) 5.0 9 4 4 1 5 0 7.20

Mazzaro came in and pitched in the April 6 game which accounts for his inflated ERA. So, if you think about it, Mazzaro made a start in AAA and was demoted to AA, selected as the best pitcher there after his great season, and now returns to AAA where he has been for the last month. Is that confusing--or does that make sense. Sort of funny to think of it that way. Ohh--and he is still giving up way too many hits. Only 2 were for extra bases, so I wonder how many of those 7 singles were hard hit. 

Pitching from today's game

Player IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Dowdy 3.1 3 3 3 4 4 0 4.50

Prinz (BS, 2)(L, 1-3) 0.2 3 3 3 0 1 2 5.74

Nice outing today Gray. 

MID--A whopping two hits from our Rockhounds.

Rodriguez, H 2.2 2 0 0 0 3 0 7.62
Carignan 1.0 1 0 0 1 2 0 2

 

Nice game from our boy Henry. I can't remember the last time that he pitched this many innings without surrendering a walk. Very nice outing. Our boy Carignan also pitched well, although he did surrender a walk which has been his achilles this season. Any chance Carignan sees time in the Oakland bullpen next season? 

STO--I don't expect much from this team any longer. Its not really their fault. I think Taj said it best when he mentioned that this team has had too many good players who just happened to be promoted.  There is little consistency and the pitching staff has struggled because of that. The four starters everyone praised in the beginning have moved on--three promotions and an injury.  At this point I check their box score to see if Carter or Brown homered, and to see is Donaldson is still racking.  

 

Final    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9      R   H   E

Donaldson 1B: 0-4, .339 (Thats an interesting position for him to be playing.)

Carter 3B: 1-4, R, HR, RBI, SO, .259

Brown, C CF: 0-4, 2 SO, .253 

 

Player IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA

KCC--Hey we got a win from our Cougars. Christian makes his debut at SS and the pitching carries the night in Kane County.

Klein LF: 0-2, R, 3 BB, SB, .261

Christian SS: 2-5, 3 SO, .400

Johnson RF: 2-5, R, 2B, 2 SO, .281

 

Player IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Capra 7.0 4 2 2 2 5 0 3.80
Kerfoot (W, 7-1) 3.0 1 0 0 1 3 0 2.44

 

Capra is walking too many batters to start his young career. However, he is putting in some good inning of late and keeping his ERA at about 3.80.  This Kerfoot character has been putting together a very strong season coming out of the bullpen and offering multiple innings. Over his last 10 outings he has a 2.12 ERA, 17IP, 17 S) and only 4 BB.

I'm liking Hart. He has a great K:BB ratio, but in short season, it takes more than a K:BB ratio to determine how good a prospect is going to be. But hey, it doesn't hurt.
