Final: Kane County 9, Wisconsin 2

Cougars slam Rattlers
By Chris Mehring / Wisconsin Timber Rattlers

GENEVA, IL - Kane County Cougars third baseman Michael Antonio was hitting .182 with no home runs heading into Monday afternoon's game against the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark. Antonio collected three hits, including a grand slam home run in the third inning, to lead the Cougars to a 9-2 victory over the Rattlers.

Max Walla gave the Rattlers (23-15) a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Ben McMahan doubled with Nick Ramirez at first to put runners at second and third with one out. Walla's grounder to second got Ramirez home for the lead.

The Cougars (20-18) came back with a two-out, two-run home run by Murray Watts in the bottom of the second inning. Antonio had doubled with one out in the inning and scored ahead of Watts line a pitch just over the wall in right field for his seventh homer of the season.

Justin Trapp tripled with one out in the bottom of the third, but he was still at third with two outs. Then, Rattlers starter Chad Thompson walked the next two batters to load the bases. Thompson fell behind Antonio 3-1. The Cougars third baseman cracked a long homer to left on the next pitch for a grand slam and a 6-1 Kane County lead.

Kevin Shackelford got the final out of the third, but did not fare much better in the fourth. Kane County scored three runs in the frame to grab a 9-1 advantage. Danny Mateo had an RBI double. Jorge Bonifacio singled in another run. The final run came home on a fielder's choice by Lane Adams.

Yadiel Rivera got Wisconsin back on the scoreboard in the top of the sixth inning with a long home run to left. Rivera's third home run of the season made the score 9-2. But, Moen was solid the rest of the day. He allowed two runs on four hits without walking a batter and striking out four in six innings.

Rattlers reliever Mark Williams came on in the bottom of the fifth and had a nice outing. He worked four shutout innings, walked two, allowed one hit, and struck out five.

But, a pair of Kane County relievers combined to work three scoreless innings to secure Kane County's second straight win over Wisconsin.

The Timber Rattlers and Cougars wrap up their four game series Tuesday morning. David Goforth (3-2, 4.67) is the scheduled starting pitcher for the Timber Rattlers. Robinson Yambati (1-0, 3.60) is set to start for Kane County. Game time is 11:00am. Tune in for the Miller Lite Pregame Show on AM1280, WNAM or timberrattlers.com starting at 10:40am.

HOME RUN:
WIS:
Yadiel Rivera (3rd, 0 on in 6th inning off Kellen Moen, 0 out)

KC:
Murray Watts (7th, 1 on in 2nd inning off Chad Thompson, 2 out)
Michael Antonio (1st, 3 on in 3rd inning off Chad Thompson, 2 out)

WP: Kellen Moen (2-1)
LP: Chad Thompson (1-1)

TIME: 2:28
ATTN: 4,135

Wisconsin Box Score
In the 2 outings since his debut no hitter Chad Thompson hasn't fared so well but at least Mark Williams continued his fine start to the season.

Max Walla has dropped to 7th in the order and Yadiel Rivera to 9th and it worked today as both players produced runs, but it's a little disappointing from a development perspective. However it is understandable given how well the players in front of them have been hitting. Gregory Hopkins has cooled off a bit, Jason Rogers has been a pretty steady .280ish hitter, and Nick Ramirez (2-4 today) are all hitting in the upper .200s while Brandon Macias and Ben McMahan are hitting over .300 in their last 10 games. John Dishon batted lead off today as Chadwin Stang didn't play.

Wisconsin Play By Play
Not much to be excited about in here.

Final Game 1: Huntsville 5, Mississippi 4 (7 innings)

Game 1 Box Score
Interestingly as I followed the game and even after I started my post the box score had Tyler Thornburg charged with 3ER instead of the 1ER it's showing now, I thought it should have been 2ER all along. Regardless, Tyler wasn't sharp again walking 3 and allowing 5 hits in only 6IP, but he did strike out 4 batters. He threw 92 pitches but only 56 for strikes and posted a 4:5 GO:FO ratio. Jesus Sanchez came on pitched a clean 7th to nail down the victory, he hasn't been scored upon in at least 10 straight appearances.

Scooter Gennett and Juan Sanchez both went 2-3 with a double while Jason Jarmillo added a double of his own. Thornburg went 1-1 with a HBP (excessively hateful Mr. Lugo!) bumping his season AVE up to .222. The defense wasn't good as the Stars committed 3 defensive miscues, Gennett had a throwing error in the 5th and Jarmillo had a throwing error and passed ball in the 4th. Josh Prince stole his 7th base of the season.

Wow, another inning with no runs for Arnett. He even allowed no baserunners for once. He's almost got his ERA into the 2's. Anyone have any info on his stuff? I assumed that with the struggles, the shoulder injury, etc that he was still around 90. Has it gotten back to pre-draft levels?

Fiers Tosses Three-Hit Shutout In Twinbill Opener
05/14/2012 8:05 PM ET
Nashville Sounds

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Right-hander Mike Fiers tossed a three-hit, seven-inning shutout to lead the Nashville Sounds to a 5-0 victory over the Reno Aces in the first game of a doubleheader on Monday evening at Greer Stadium.

Fiers (1-2) picked up his first victory of the season with the gem, which was his second career shutout. His first, a nine-inning three-hitter, came last August 31 for the Sounds at Iowa. The right-hander walked two batters, hit a pair of batters, and struck out five during his 96-pitch effort.

Logan Schafer and Eric Farris each recorded three hits and Martin Maldonado belted a homer to pace the Sounds' 13-hit attack. Nashville finished 5-for-10 with runners in scoring position in the contest.

The Sounds squandered a no-outs, bases-loaded opportunity in the bottom of the first inning against Reno starter Charles Brewer. Schafer, Farris, and Jeff Bianchi started the frame with three consecutive singles to fill the bags against the right-hander. Brewer induced a comebacker from Jordan Brown and forced Schafer at the plate for the first out. Erick Almonte followed with a line drive to right, which was gloved by ex-Sound Cole Gillespie who then fired to the plate to nail Farris for the final out as he attempted to score on the play.

Nashville took a 3-0 lead in the third against Brewer. Fiers led off with a double into the left field corner and later scored on a bloop RBI single off the bat of Eric Farris, which fell just in front of the glove of a diving Adam Eaton in center field. Later in the frame, Brown and Almonte (Audio) legged out back-to-back, two-out run-scoring doubles to increase the Sounds' advantage to three.

Maldonado upped the lead to 4-0 in the fourth when he belted his third homer of the season, a one-out solo shot to left-center that careened off the guitar-shaped scoreboard. The blast snapped a 20 at-bat hitless stretch for the backstop.

Farris concluded the Sounds' scoring in the sixth inning with a two-out RBI single that plated Schafer, who had singled with two outs, stole second, and moved to third on a wild pitch.

Brewer (1-3) took the loss after working all six innings for Reno, giving up five runs on 13 hits.

Box Score

On the day of a double header, Mike Fiers (96 pitches, 59 strikes) was a pitching coach's dream as he went the distance. 7 IP 3 H 0 R 2 BB 5 K 1 WP 2 HBP 9:3 GO:FO. Mike also hit a big 2B to help his own cause. Fiers is fully stretched out at this point and ready to compete for a rotation spot next year. I have said before that he could thrive in a Marco Estrada kind of role. Basically, Fiers is a good 6th starter with the ability to fill a rotation spot adequately. Former Brewers farmhand Cole Gillespie had two of the three hits for the Reno Aces.

The bats were relentless and should have been more potent. 13 hits including 6 between the top two hitters in the lineup and another 5 from the 3-5 hitters. Logan Schafer (3-3 BB SB PO) was magnificent. Eric Farris, who has 2 XBH's in well over 100 PA's (both doubles), also had 3 hits. Martin Maldonado dented a guitar. Caleb Gindl received Game 1 off.

Game Log

Whoops.

'Tees edged by Cubs, 2-1
05/14/2012 10:26 PM ET
By Frank Longobardo / Brevard County Manatees

Image
Manatees starting pitcher and 2011 first round draft pick Jed Bradley went just 3 1/3 innings as he left the game with an apparent groin injury on Monday night. Brevard County lost their fifth game in a row falling 2-1 to the Daytona Cubs. (Dennis Greenblatt/Hawk-Eye Sports Photography)

VIERA, Fla. - The Brevard County Manatees lost their fifth game in row as they were defeated by the Daytona Cubs, 2-1 on Monday night at Space Coast Stadium. After a 5-1 start to the season, the 'Tees have gone 9-21 since.

Manatees starting pitcher and Brewers 2011 first round draft pick Jed Bradley (4-3, 3.53) went just 3 1/3 innings as he left the game with an apparent groin injury. He allowed two runs on three hits, while walking two and not recording a strikeout.

The two runs scored on Bradley in the first inning were all that the Cubs needed as Nelson Perez hit a two-run single with two outs in the frame. The Manatees (14-22) got one run back in the bottom of the inning as Cody Hawn plated Reggie Keen with a RBI single.

The scoring by both teams in the first inning would be all for the game as pitching dominated the rest of the way. After Bradley's early exit, Brevard County's bullpen held Daytona (14-23) scoreless for 5 2/3 innings.

Brian Garman came out of the pen first for the 'Tees and threw 2 2/3 innings while allowing just one hit and striking out four. Eric Arnett, Stosh Wawrzasek and Eric Marzec threw a scoreless inning each against the Cubs.

The Manatees had their chances offensively as they outhit the Cubs 7-5, but Brevard went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. Both Hawn and Mike Walker had two hits each in the Manatees' loss. During their current five game losing streak, Brevard County has scored just eight runs and is hitting just .192 as a team.

Brevard County and Daytona will be back in action on Tuesday night at 6:35 p.m. for the second game of this three-game set.

Brooks Hall (0-1, 1.98) will get the start for the Manatees as he replaces the recently promoted Hiram Burgos in the rotation. In his first start of the season last Thursday against Palm Beach, he went five innings and allowed one run, while striking out five.

The Cubs will send Matt Loosen (1-1, 5.54) to the hill. Loosen faced the 'Tees on opening night and allowed three runs on one hit and four walks in 1/3 of an inning.

Box Score

So this game should have been called after the first inning. The final score would have been the same and our prized young southpaw with the slippery slider wouldn't have hurt his groin. Starter Jed Bradley almost escaped the 1st inning, but a key two-out 2-run knock proved to be the game winner. In case you missed it, Bradley left in the 3rd inning with a groin injury. I'm glad the injury is a lower half thing. He did post a 7:1 GO:FO. The relievers were spectacular allowing only 1 hit the rest of the way.

T.J. Mittelstaedt (0-2 2 BB SB) has been struggling. 45 K's in 126 AB's for Brevard's best hitter. Mike Walker and Nick Shaw have identical, but not really, .704 OPS.

Game Log

I think the run-scoring single was actually with 1-out, no?

Daytona Top of the 1st


Arismendy Alcantara singles on a line drive to center fielder Reggie Keen.
With Ronald Torreyes batting, Arismendy Alcantara steals (9) 2nd base.
Ronald Torreyes walks.
Rubi Silva pops out to pitcher Jed Bradley.
Greg Rohan walks. Arismendy Alcantara to 3rd. Ronald Torreyes to 2nd.
Nelson Perez singles on a ground ball to right fielder Franklin Romero Jr. Arismendy Alcantara scores. Ronald Torreyes scores. Greg Rohan out at 3rd on the throw, right fielder Franklin Romero Jr. to third baseman Michael Walker. Nelson Perez to 2nd on the throw.
John Andreoli grounds out, shortstop Nick Shaw to first baseman Cody Hawn.

Sounds Split Doubleheader With 5-1 Loss
05/14/2012 11:09 PM ET
Nashville Sounds

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Sounds lost 5-1 to the Reno Aces in the twinbill finale of a doubleheader on Monday evening at Greer Stadium.

With the split, the Sounds moved to 1-3 in doubleheader action in 2012 and sport a 13-23 record, which moves the club ahead of Memphis into third place in the PCL American Northern Division.

Reno struck first with three runs against starter Seth McClung in the opening frame of the nightcap. The bases were loaded with one out as Adam Eaton and Jake Elmore reached on singles, followed by a one-out walk from Mike Jacobs. David Winfree brought home the first run on a sacrifice fly while Taylor Harbin knocked a two-run triple in the ensuing at-bat.

The runs scored by Reno ended a scoreless streak of nine innings leading back to the fourth inning of Saturday's rain-shortened contest.

The Aces pushed the score to 4-1 in the top of the fifth as Eaton doubled and scored on an Elmore single to right field.

David Winfree belted his first homer of the season to extend the Aces' lead to 5-1 in the visiting half of the sixth. The solo shot was hammered over the wall in right center.

The Sounds got a run back in the next frame on Aces starter Taylor Sinclair, who made his Triple-A debut. Shortstop Jeff Bianchi reached on a run-down fielder's choice, and scored on an RBI base hit from left fielder Erick Almonte.

Schafer, Bianchi, and Sean Halton recorded two hits apiece in the nightcap.

Sinclair surrendered one run on four hits and a walk on 2 2/3 innings for the Aces. Reliever Mike DeMark (302) pitched 1 1/3 innings for the victory.

McClung (0-4) remained winless on the year, giving up four runs on five hits on while striking out four in 4 2/3 innings.

Juan Perez struck out his only two batters faced. Amaury Rivas allowed one run on one hit in 2/3 of an inning.

With a scoreless inning, Jim Henderson extended his scoreless streak to 17 2/3 innings over 10 appearances to open the season, the most innings of all PCL pitchers with a 0.00 ERA.

The teams will wrap up the four-game series with an 11:05 a.m. matinee on Tuesday morning at Greer Stadium, when thousands of area schoolchildren will pack the stands on Education Day as a reward for reaching their goals in the Nashville Sounds Reading Club program. (Again?)

Right-hander Mark Rogers (0-2, 4.03) will start the contest for the Sounds and face Albuquerque southpaw Zach Kroenke (3-1, 5.23).

Box Score

Logan Schafer added 2 more hits including a 2B. Sean Halton also had 2 hits and 2B.

Juan Perez
was very good in this one. He is having a very good season thus far. Same with Jim Henderson. Both guys are certainly hotter than anything in the Milwaukee bullpen right now.

The Sounds need to head out west to take advantage of those thin air ballparks. The hitters need it.

I'm not sure where his stuff is, but he's only pitching an inning every 4-7 days (2 times he went 1+) which leads me to believe that young Mr. Arnett and coach Dewey are doing a ton of work in the bullpen. Typically when the Brewers are limiting innings due to injury the schedule is very regular... every third day, every fourth day, etc. Since his schedule is fairly random but with plenty of time to get BP sessions in between that would be my guess.

I doubt we get anything out of the local news, we'd have to get something from another source like Ash, BA, MiLB, etc.

Final Game 2: Mississippi 6, Huntsville 0 (7 innings)

Game 2 Box Score
Someday a psychologist is going to sit down and figure out what it is with splitting doubleheaders. I know they were my least favorite part of baseball when I played. I was fortunate to come through school during my town's prime so I competed with some awfully talented people and we didn't lose much so after changing into shorts and taking off the jersey top, then getting something to eat, I never felt like suiting back up to play another game against a team we already beat, especially in July and August. I don't recall ever losing the front end of a doubleheader, but I can imagine there is a sense of urgency that comes with that 2nd game to put a win on the board and get a return on the investment.

Unfortunately Kyle Heckathorn had his worst start of the season in Game 2, he last 4.2IP giving up 7H, 5ER, 0BB, 1WP, and 1HR against 3SO. Kyle only threw 73 pitches but 46 strikes so efficiency with the pitch count wasn't his problem he just got hit hard, he was especially burned by XBHs which accounted for all 5 runs against him. Daniel Meadows came on to get the last out in the 5th then gave way to Bradley Blanks who allowed a run on 2 hits against 3 strike outs in his 2 innings. Positive spin for game 2... Stars pitchers did not walk a batter.

The offense was pretty anemic in game 2 only putting 5 hits on the board and no Huntsville player had multiple hits or an XBH. Josh Prince did steal his 8th and the Stars played clean defense.

Manatees' Bradley leaves with injury
Left-hander suffers mild groin strain, replaced after 3 1/3 frames
By David Heck / Special to MLB.com

Image
Jed Bradley, the 15th overall pick in 2011, has posted a 3.53 ERA this year. (Cliff Welch/MiLB.com)

An injury limited Jed Bradley to the shortest start of his career Monday.

The Brewers' No. 2 prospect lasted just 3 1/3 innings -- coming out in the middle of an at-bat -- in Class A Advanced Brevard County's 2-1 loss to Daytona.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash told MLB.com that Bradley was removed with a mild groin strain.

On the night, Bradley (4-3) surrendered two runs on three hits and two walks. The outing marks the first time that he failed to pitch at least five innings, as well as the first time that he did not record a strikeout.

The 21-year-old left-hander scuffled in the first inning, allowing four of the first five batters he faced to reach base. Arismendy Alcantara led off the game with a single, while Ronald Torreyes followed with a walk. After a popout by Rubi Silva, Greg Rohan drew a free pass and Nelson Perez delivered a two-run single.

Bradley went on to retire the next eight batters he faced before Perez again singled in the fourth. He then threw one pitch to John Andreoli, but was replaced by reliever Brian Garman in the middle of the at-bat.

"It was weird, he didn't even limp or anything," said Robbie Aaron, the Daytona Cubs' director of broadcasting and media relations. "We didn't know if he was injured or something happened. The coaching staff and trainer came out. We didn't know if he was hurt, but he didn't look like he was in pain."

Drafted with the 15th overall pick in June, Bradley has posted a 3.53 ERA through 43 1/3 innings with the Manatees. He has fanned 36 while walking 14.

Pirates prospect Justin Wilson left his Triple-A start with a groin injury after three innings on Monday afternoon, the team said.

Wilson held Norfolk to one hit over three innings for Indianapolis before exiting with tightness in his right groin while warming up to start the fourth inning. The Pirates said it was a "precautionary measure" and that Wilson, Pittsburgh's No. 2-ranked left-handed prospect, will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Wilson threw 30 pitches -- 21 for strikes -- and allowed just one hit, a two-out single to center in the first inning.

The left-hander is 3-3 with a 3.14 ERA in eight starts this season, with 41 strikeouts in 43 innings, including a game on April 29 in which he combined with Jose Diaz and Doug Slaten on Indy's first no-hitter in nearly seven years when the Indians blanked the Durham Bulls, 2-0.

The Fresno State alum was named the International League's Pitcher of the Week on April 30 and has held opponents to a .184 average this season.

Veteran Rick VandenHurk pitched five scoreless innings in relief of Wilson, holding the Tides to five hits for his first win. Matt Hague's sacrifice fly scored Gorkys Hernandez in the fourth for the game's lone run.

Norfolk's Steve Johnson took the tough-luck loss, allowing an unearned run on three hits over eight innings. He struck out eight and walked one.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.- After two consecutive rainouts, mother nature finally complied and allowed the Huntsville Stars to play and split a doubleheader against the Mississippi Braves on Monday night at Joe Davis Stadium. The Stars won game one 5-4 and lost game two 6-0.

In game one, down by a run early, the Stars got an RBI double from Jason Jaramillo and a two-run single from center fielder Josh Prince to take a 3-1 lead after the first inning.

While defensive miscues by Huntsville allowed the M-Braves to score three of their four runs, making the score 5-4 in the fifth inning, their was no scoring after that point.

Huntsville starting pitcher Tyler Thornburg improved to 5-0 on the season after pitching six innings while giving up four runs (one earned) and striking out four. Following Thornburg's departure before the seventh inning, Stars RHP Jesus Sanchez shut down the M-Braves for his third save of the season. Sanchez hasn’t allowed a run in his last 12 appearances.

In game two, the Stars were shutout by a score of 6-0 and held to five total hits by the combination of M-Braves starting pitcher Sean Gilmartin and reliever Andrew Wilson.

On offense, the Braves began the scoring in the first inning on a two-run home run from third basemen Joe Leonard.

Mississippi also got an RBI triple by center fielder Todd Cunningham in the second inning, and a two-run double by first basemen Ian Gac in the fifth inning to give Gilmartin all the run support he needed.

The Braves 2011 first round draft pick (29 th overall) improved to 2-4 on the season by shutting out the Stars through six innings, giving up just four hits while striking out four.

Stars starting pitcher Kyle Heckathorn fell to 2-2 on the season after giving up five runs in 4.2 innings pitched. For Heckathorn, the first inning home run to Leonard was his first long ball given up this season in over 40 innings pitched. The loss was the fourth time the Stars have been shutout this season.

The Stars and Braves will finish off their four-game series with a special 10:43 AM first pitch on Tuesday with Huntsville sending out RHP Hiram Burgos (2-1, 0.87 ERA with High-A Brevard County) to face off against Mississippi starter RHP David Hale (2-2, 4.66 ERA).
