AZL Indians 13, AZL Brewers 2

Arizona Box Score
Well to be quite honest the score says it all. The A-Crew took the lead in the first inning on a Jose Sermo triple after 2nd rounder Tyrone Taylor led off the game with a single. Then Dustin Houle flew out and Sermo was thrown out at home and that was the end of that mini threat. Jalen Harris scored in the 7th on a Angel Ortega ground out and that signified the only A-Crew runs.

Joel Dicent started his first game in the states and wasn't nearly as effective as he was in the DSL last year; 5 earned runs in 4 innings. 10th round pick Anthony Banda followed him with 5 runs (all earned) on 6 hits and 2 walks in 1.1 innings. Carlos Sosa, the 2011 DSL Brewer closer, came in for his states debut and didn't really stop the bleeding. He gave up the final 6 hits and 3 runs of the night.

Raul Mondesi Jr. threw out a guy at third. That's 4.

Like father, like son, I guess.

Can I ask if you mean 'just' 4 OF assists, or has RMJ nailed 4 baserunners at 3B alone so far?

Final: Nashville 8, Albuquerque 4

Five Homers Power Sounds To 8-4 Win In Road Trip Opener
Halton Goes Yard Twice For Third Time In Career

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The Nashville Sounds belted five home runs to beat the Albuquerque Isoptpes, 8-4, on Saturday night in the opener of a four-game series at Isotopes Park.

With homers in a season-high seven consecutive games, the five home runs set a season high for Nashville (31-45) and was one long ball shy of a franchise record.

The victory was Nashville's (31-45) fifth in the last seven contests overall first to begin a road trip this season (1-6).

First baseman Sean Halton hit a pair of home runs as part of a 3-for-5 evening for the Sounds. The two-homer effort by Halton was the third multiple-homer game of his four-year career and second two-homer effort by a Sound this season after outfielder Logan Schafer went yard twice last night against Oklahoma City.

Second baseman Eric Farris also had three hits and a run scored while outfielder Corey Patterson recorded his second multi-hit game in a row.

Nashville starter Mark Rogers (3-4) picked up the victory, allowing four runs on five hits with three strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. Reliever Donovan Hand ended the contest with 2 1/3 scoreless frames to extend his scoreless streak to 13 1/3 innings in the month of June.


Albuquerque took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning on a bases loaded, two-run single by Matt Angle.

After Patterson lined a double to right field, Rogers helped his own cause by crushing a two-run homer to left. The long ball was the first of Rogers' professional career and first by a Sounds pitcher since Sam Narron went yard on August 23, 2010 at Iowa.

· AUDIO: Mark Rogers Game-Tying Homer

Nashville took a 3-2 lead in the top of the fourth inning thanks to an inning-opening walk by third baseman Andy Gonzalez, who moved to second based on the ensuing base hit by Sean Halton. Gonzalez would score two batters later on a Farris RBI base hit down the left field line.

Gonzalez extended the Nashville lead to 4-2 on the first pitch of the sixth inning from Albuquerque starter Michael Antonini. The big fly was Gonzalez's seventh of the season, which have all come in the month of June.

· AUDIO: Andy Gonzalez Goes Yard

Five pitches later, Halton went yard over the left field wall for back-to-back jacks, removing Antonini from the contest. It was the third time in 2012 that the Sounds have hit back-to-back homers and second occurance by the due of Gonzalez and Halton (June 4 vs. New Orleans).

· AUDIO: Sean Halton Goes Back-To-Back

Three batters later after Farris singled, Patterson lined the third homer of the inning over the right field wall for a 7-2 advantage. The home run was Patterson's fourth of the season.

· AUDIO: Corey Patterson Two-Run Home Run

Halton's second homer of the game was to the deepest part of the park to straightaway center, extending the lead to 8-2.

The Isotopes trimmed the lead to 8-4 in the bottom of the seventh thanks to a two-out, two run rally that spoiled the quality start for Rogers. Angle got things started with a two-out single and was followed by a pinch hit base hit by Brian Cavazos-Galvez that removed Rogers from the game. Former Sound Trent Oeltjen then cranked a two-run triple off the left field wall.

Antonini (1-6) was charged five runs on seven hits and three homers in five innings for the loss.

The Sounds and Isotopes continue their series at 7:05 pm CT on Sunday evening at Isotopes Park. Right-hander Brian Baker (1-3, 6.39) will start for Nashville against Albuquerque right-hander Fernando Nieve (3-5, 7.05).

Nashville Box Score
First a correction from my earlier post as tomorrow's starter will be the uninspiring Brian Baker. Jeff was extremely confused when Donovan Hand started warming up in the bullpen, but apparently in game strategy trumped the plan. The single with 2-out in the 7th didn't exactly chase Mark Rogers, something with his hand did. It looked like Dabney was just coming out for a talk and then Mark was promptly pulled. It's too bad Hand gave up the ensuing triple because Mark's line looked a heck of a lot better without the extra 2 ER. His final line was 6.2 IP, 5H, 4ER, 1BB, and 1HBP against 3SO throwing 58 of 92 pitches for strikes and posting an 8:6 ratio.

The offense was covered in the game story but Eric Farris did commit his 5th error of the season (fielding).

Nashville Play By Play
Rogers still has too many of these "A Ball" innings (that's been the description in my head forever) where he gives up unnecessary runs... A HBP and a walk to load the bases followed by a gimp single.
Albuquerque Bottom of the 2nd
    Scott Van Slyke singles on a ground ball to center fielder Logan Schafer.
    Luis Cruz pops out to shortstop Jeff Bianchi.
    Jerry Sands hit by pitch. Scott Van Slyke to 2nd.
    Tim Federowicz walks. Scott Van Slyke to 3rd. Jerry Sands to 2nd.
    Matt Angle singles on a ground ball to left fielder Corey Patterson. Scott Van Slyke scores. Jerry Sands scores. Tim Federowicz out at 3rd on the throw, left fielder Corey Patterson to third baseman Andy Gonzalez.

    Michael Antonini grounds out, shortstop Jeff Bianchi to first baseman Sean Halton.

The Isotopes 7th, I actually felt bad for Mark, outside of 4 hitters he pitched well, but the razor thin margins for error are part of the game.
Albuquerque Bottom of the 7th
    Jerry Sands grounds out, third baseman Andy Gonzalez to first baseman Sean Halton.
    Tim Federowicz flies out to center fielder Logan Schafer.
    Matt Angle singles on a ground ball to right fielder Jordan Brown.
    Offensive Substitution: Pinch hitter Brian Cavazos-Galvez replaces Blake Johnson.
    Brian Cavazos-Galvez singles on a ground ball to right fielder Jordan Brown. Matt Angle to 2nd.
    Pitcher Change: Donovan Hand replaces Mark Rogers, batting 9th.
    Trent Oeltjen triples (4) on a fly ball to left fielder Corey Patterson. Matt Angle scores. Brian Cavazos-Galvez scores.

    Alex Castellanos flies out to right fielder Jordan Brown.

Generals Outshine Stars

JACKSON, Tenn. – A complete-game by pitcher Anthony Fernandez in his Double-A debut highlighted a 5-1 loss for the Huntsville Stars over the Jackson Generals on Saturday night at Pringles Park.

In the second inning, the Stars managed their only action off of Fernandez in the entire ballgame. After a double by Stars newcomer Hainley Statia, a RBI single by left fielder Scott Krieger gave the Stars an early 1-0 lead. For Krieger, it was his third consecutive game with a run batted in.

However, from that point on, the Generals dominated the rest of the game.

The Stars lead vanished for good in the third inning with a two-out rally from the Jackson offense off of Huntsville starter Kyle Heckathorn. After a walk by shortstop Gabriel Noriega and a single from third baseman Leury Bonilla, second baseman Stefan Romero hit a three-run home run to put the Generals up 3-1.

Jackson would then plate insurance runs in the sixth inning on a solo home run by designated hitter Joe Dunigan and in the seventh inning on a RBI triple by Romero to increase their lead to 5-1.

That lead was plenty for Fernandez. The 22-year-old lefty went the distance in his first ever Double-A game, only giving up one run on five hits while striking out five. Prior to his debut, Fernandez was 2-5 with a 3.48 ERA with High-A High Desert this season.

After being tabbed with the loss, Heckathorn fell to 2-7 on the season after giving up four runs and seven hits in six innings of work. The 24-year-old has not won a game since May9th.

On the pitching side, LHP Dan Meadows gave up a run in an inning of relief and RHP Darren Byrd pitched a scoreless frame.

Game four of a five-game series will begin on Sunday as the Stars will send RHP Hiram Burgos (2-1, 2.40 ERA) to the mound to square off against Generals RHP Brandon Maurer (5-1, 3.82 ERA). First pitch is at 6:05 PM.

Mustangs extend win streak vs. Brewers
by Amber Kuehn, Helena Independent Record

Opening night now seems like a distant memory for the Billings Mustangs.

Six days removed from a season-starting, blowout loss to Missoula, the Mustangs have won five straight – the latest a 7-3 victory over the Helena Brewers. Billings is in first place in the Pioneer League North Division, and looks like a team that belongs there with quality pitching, timely hitting and a defense that doesn’t let up no matter how big the lead.

“We’re on a nice roll,” Mustangs manager Pat Kelly said following Saturday night’s win. “Our pitching and defense have been solid, and the last two nights we’ve been swinging the bat well.”

It was déjà vu all over again at Kindrick Legion Field. Billings again broke open the game in a big sixth inning, this time scoring five runs in the frame. Robert Maddox again blistered the Brewers with his hot bat, with his second 3-for-4 performance in as many nights. And once again, Helena managed to muster some late-game drama, only to see the comeback come up short.

“It’s been the same story every night it seems like,” said Brewers manager Jeff Isom. “Big innings and comeback chances. We need to make sure we’re getting the same quality at-bats early in the game, because what I’m seeing is guys are dialed in late.

“We’ve got to be able to carry that through the whole game.”

Billings starter Wes Mugarian was masterful through five scoreless innings, allowing just two hits for the win. Michael Garza put the Brewers on the board in the sixth, with an RBI single off reliever Joel Bender. The hosts would tack on another run in the eighth, but some poor decisions on the base paths prevented them from scoring more. Isom has often praised the Brewers for their aggressiveness in that regard, but admitted that that same mentality didn’t work when trailing by six runs. McFarland was thrown out at the plate after missing the stop sign at third on Michael Reed’s double, and Garza was picked off at second.

“We’ve got to understand which situations call for more patience,” Isom said.

The Brewers had a chance to rally in the ninth inning against a wild Jesus Adames. The Mustangs right-hander walked Emmanuel Quiles on four pitches, then walked Kevin Berard and Adrian Williams to load the bases with one out. One run scored on a wild pitch. Enter the calm and collected Mo Wiley, the closer who already had one save this season for the Mustangs (5-1). Wiley fanned Raul Mondesi, Jr. on a pitch that just grazed the inside corner of the strike zone, then struck out McFarland to end the threat.

“He did a nice job bailing us out of trouble, and that was big,” Kelly said. “It was especially key with the lineup turning over there, we were getting into their best hitters.”

Will West was tagged with his second loss of the season, after the Brewers southpaw gave up 11 hits and seven earned runs in just over five innings of work. After striking out the side in the fifth, the 19-year-old starter ran out of gas in the sixth, giving up four base hits and a walk before being pulled.

The Mustangs have now scored 11 runs in sixth innings alone this series, and have combined for 26 hits against Helena. In addition to Maddox, Carlos Sanchez tore it up for the visitors Saturday with two doubles, a pair of singles and 3 RBIs.

The Brewers will look to end a four-game skid today when they take on Billings at 1 p.m. Right-hander Robert Stephenson, a first-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Reds, gets the nod for Billings this afternoon, while fellow right-hander Michael Schaub takes the mound for Helena.

NOTES: Billings catcher Fray Sosa stayed in the game Saturday night after being shaken up on a collision at home plate. Sosa was hit hard while blocking McFarland and making the out in the eighth ... the Mustangs’ pitching staff leads the league in strikeouts with 54 ... Brewers first baseman Adam Giacalone ended an 0-for-16 slump to start the season with his double in the second inning — his first professional hit.

And That said:
Through 2 and 2/3 games, the Maryvale squad has been outscored 41-4.


Their pythagoreon win/loss has to be -3/0.

I wrote that in a confusing way. He has 4 OF assists already. Pretty sure 2 were gunned at the plate and 2 at 3B.

Not too shabby for 6 games in.

I am almost always more worried about the runner in these collisions. The lone exception is when Prince Fielder is doing the plowing.

It appears McFarland is all right.

Rogers is really injecting some life into the BC offense.

Following Jason Rogers' lead, John Dishon gets a hit (2B) in his first AB in A+. BC is on the way towards the sweep. 4-2 'Tees.


Quick edit:

Dishon actually singled and walked on Friday making Saturday's 2B his 2nd hit in A+. My bad John, and thank you MH for making me aware.

Great start for the two new hitters.

Not overly concerned, but it is interesting. I wonder if it's a matter of the Brewers deciding he can't play SS, or if it's just that they have other guys to play the position. I know they had him paired with Arcia quite a bit through Spring Training and Extended until Arcia got injured. His value is obviously higher if he can play SS but I think his main attributes are his bat and his speed. I seem to remember some questions when he was drafted as to if he could stick at short. Some people saw him as a future center fielder if I recall correctly.

Iirc that was colbyjack's one knock on McFarland in the draft discussions -- that he wouldn't stick at SS. But everything else about him so far seems to be easy to like.

Also hard not to get excited about that start from Mark Rogers. I just hope his hand is ok... the guy certainly doesn't need another fluky injury to deal with.
