Two weeks of games is really too little time to make definitive claims regarding any team, much less a minor league affiliate that’s still figuring out its roster. So this week’s update will focus on highlighting some performances of note and not so much on team analysis.

 

Sacramento River Cats (5-6)

 

S. Doolittle   326/396/488  2-1-1 (D-T-HR)  4/8 (BB/K)  42 AB

C. Denorfia  300/364/350  2-0-0 (D-T-HR)  4/6 (BB/K)  40 AB

E. Patterson  289/372/447  3-0-1 (D-T-HR)  5/8 (BB/K)  38 AB  5-0 SB

V. Mazzaro  3 GS  14.0 IP  9 H  7/12 (BB/K)  2.75 GO/AO  1.93 ERA

C. Schroder  4 G  6.0 IP  2 H  3/7 (BB/K)  .83 GO/AO  0.00 ERA

 

GO/AO rate means the number of ground outs vs. air outs a pitcher gets. 1.1 GO/AO is about average, so Mazzaro’s 2.75 GO/AO shows him to be an extreme ground ball pitcher.

 

 

Midland Rockhounds (7-3)

 

A. Cardenas  405/457/690  7-1-1 (D-T-HR)  4/8 (BB/K)  42 AB

C. Brown      357/471/464  3-0-0 (D-T-HR)  5/9 (BB/K)  28 AB

C. Carter       286/353/476  5-0-1 (D-T-HR)  5/15 (BB/K)  42 AB

S. Demel       5 G  4.2 IP  3 Sv  2 H  1/5 (BB/K)  3.50 GO/AO  0.00 ERA

 

Stockton Ports (1-10)

 

M. Smith         269/321/423  1-0-1 (D-T-HR)  2/5 (BB/K)  26 AB

D. Gordon       3 G  8.0 IP  3 H  0/11 (BB/K)  .63 GO/AO  0.00 ERA

C. Hernandez  2 GS  11.0 IP  11 H  3/9 (BB/K)  2.67 GO/AO  3.27 ERA

 

Why do I have Matt Smith’s batting line posted up here? Because he’s the Ports’ leading hitter. Here’s a bit of analysis for you: The Ports’ line-up is wretched!

 

Kane County Cougars (7-3)

 

D. Coleman  324/425/618  2-1-2 (D-T-HR)  5/9 BB/K  34 AB

S. Haviland  2 GS  11.0 IP  9 H  1/12 (BB/K)  1.00 GO/AO  2.45 ERA

S. Deal         3 G  6.0 IP  2 H  3/9 (BB/K)  1.25 GO/AO  0,00 ERA
