STARS FALL IN BARNBURNER WITH BAYBEARS

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – In a game that featured 21 combined runs and 33 combined hits, the Huntsville Stars fell to the Mobile BayBears by a score of 13-8 on Thursday night at Joe Davis Stadium.

The scoring began in the top of the third inning as the BayBears got a two-run double by shortstop Chris Owings and pair of RBI singles from center fielder Evan Frey and right fielder Mark Krauss to take a 4-0 lead. The initial burst was the third straight game Mobile was able to score first against the Stars.

However, the Stars were able to cut that lead in half in the fourth inning. After a lead-off home run by first baseman Hunter Morris put the Stars on the board, a RBI single by catcher Adam Weisenburger plated right fielder Kentrail Davis to make the score 4-2.

Unfortunately for the Stars and their starting pitcher Kyle Heckathorn, the BayBears offense was not ready to let up. With a pair of RBI singles from Owings and second baseman David Nick and then a two-run single by left fielder Wladimir Sutill, Mobile increased their lead to 8-2.

In the bottom half of the fifth, the Stars did not go down quietly. To begin the inning, the Stars hit back-to-back singles by center fielder Josh Prince and shortstop Hainley Statia. Then, after a walk by Morris loaded the bases, a two-run single by third baseman Domnit Bolivar plated Prince and Statia to cut the BayBears lead in half. Morris would then score later in the inning on a wild pitch by Mobile starter David Holmberg to make the score 8-5.

Three runs was the closest the Stars would get to the BayBears. Mobile scored two runs in the sixth inning and then three more runs in the eighth inning off of Stars LHP Dan Merklinger to go up 13-5.

In the ninth inning, the Stars tacked on their final three runs off of BayBears RHP Yonata Ortega. To highlight the inning, Huntsville got a pair of RBI singles from Morris and Davis and a RBI double by left fielder Juan Sanchez.

For Mobile, the 13 runs and 18 hits were both season highs. Shortstop Chris Owings lead the way with a 5-for-6 night at the plate that including a home run, a double and four runs batted in.

On the pitching side, Heckathorn fell to 2-8 on the season with the loss after giving up eight runs on ten hits in five innings. The 24-year-old has not won a start since May 9th against the Jackson Generals. Over the past two games, the Stars hurlers have given up a combined 21 runs and 33 hits.

From an offensive standpoint, Huntsville cranked out 15 hits, including three apiece from Morris, Davis and Statia. For Morris, the multi-hit game was his third straight.

Game four of a five-game series will begin on Friday as the Stars will send RHP Hiram Burgos (2-1, 2.42 ERA) to the mound to square off against BayBears RHP Derek Eitel (6-5, 4.37 ERA). First pitch is at 6:43 PM.

AZL Reds 8, AZL Brewers 7

Arizona Box Score
This game was a little frustrating because it seemed like the pitching was serviceable, however the defense let them down. Joel Dicent had a decent start, going 5 innings giving up 4 hits, 3 walks and 3 runs (2 earned). Anthony Banda had a line you really only see in the AZL or the DSL (2.1 IP, 2 hits, 4R, 0ER, 2 walks, 1 strikeout). Undrafted FA Taylor Mangum came into the game in the top of the 8th was runners on 1st and 2nd and allow both inherited runners to score. 1B Alan Sharkey had 2 errors (giving him five for the season) and SS Renaldo Jenkins had his 3rd of the year.

The offense wasn't too bad as every player got on base at least once. Tyrone Taylor had his first professional extra base hit (though he still hasn't taken a walk). Dustin Houle Jose Pena andMalcolm Dowell all had 2 hits.

I'll take the T-Rats for you Brad, and if no one else will cover TLB next week I'll cover the Stars as well.

Excellent, thank you! Except for Saturday I can take Huntsville for the week too if you don't want to cover three teams.

I'd rather not cover 3 so if you'd take Huntsville from Sunday on that would be wonderful.

BA Hot Sheet June 29

No. 1 MATT SZCZUR, CF
CUBS
Team: high Class A Daytona (Florida State)
Age: 22
Why He's Here: .478/.600/.696 (11-for-23), 2 2B, 1 HR, 7 R, 7 RBIs, 7 BB, 2 SO, 7-for-8 SB
The Scoop: Szczur entered the year as a breakout candidate after wearing down from his baseball/football grind in the second half of last season. He recently missed 19 games due to a knee injury that kept him from playing in the Florida State League all-star game, but he has made up for lost time this past week, splitting his time between center field and DH as a precaution. The injury didn't seem to affect Szczur's plus-plus speed, as he swiped seven bases in eight attempts.

Before the injury, Szczur led the FSL in runs, stolen bases and on-base percentage. On Wednesday, he came within a triple of hitting for the cycle, when he went 4-for-6 with a homer, a double, four RBIs and two runs scored. Perhaps the most refreshing development for Szczur this year has been has improved plate discipline, as his walk percentage has dramatically increased from 5.4 percent last year to 12.5 percent this year. An extraordinary athlete, Szczur looks like he's starting to combine his raw tools with performance and could see a promotion to Double-A Tennessee soon enough.

No. 3 STARLING MARTE, CF
PIRATES
Team: Triple-A Indianapolis (International)
Age: 23.
Why He's Here: .355/.412/.839 (11-for-31), 7 R, 2 2B, 2 3B, 3 HR, 12 RBIs, 3 BB, 7 SO, 0-for-1 SB
The Scoop: He had to struggle through May to find his footing in Triple-A, but it hasn't taken long for Marte to once again remind people that he's one of the best outfield prospects in the high minors. He had a 23-game stretch in late April and early May where he went 10-for-62 (.161) with just four extra-base hits. In the 36 games since then he's hit for a more characteristic .307 average (46-for-150) with a binge of triples. Marte's 10 three-baggers lead the minors, and he hit seven of them during his recent hot streak. With his ability to run, field and hit for both average and power, Marte doesn't look to be that far away from providing a boost to a Pirates lineup that could definitely use one.

No. 6 ALEN HANSON, SS
PIRATES
Team: low Class A West Virginia (South Atlantic)
Age: 19
Why He's Here: .500/.600/.850 (10-for-20), 2 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 7 R, 3 RBIs, 5 BB, 3 SO, 2 SB
The Scoop: Fresh off an appearance in the Sally League all-star game, Hanson continues to make things happen at the plate. He has a nine-game hitting streak that extends back to June 16, and his .331 average is fifth best in the SAL. Making his full-season debut, he leads West Virginia in virtually every offensive category, including home runs (11). We identified Hanson as a Pirates sleeper in the most recent Prospect Handbook, but he won't keep that title for long if he continues to produce this type of offensive production.

No. 8 TONY CINGRANI, LHP
REDS
Team: Double-A Pensacola (Southern)
Age: 22
Why He's Here: 1-0, 1.54, 2 GS, 11 2/3 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 4 BB, 18 SO
The Scoop: Last week, Pensacola's Daniel Corcino led this list for his work in a combined no-hitter. Cingrani had a start this week that was better than Corcino's. If not for a mediocre 3 2/3-inning outing earlier in the week, Cingrani would have given the Reds back-to-back No. 1s on the Hot Sheet, but even with that ugly outing, Cingrani's second start of the week had to be honored. He went eight shutout innings while striking out 15 and allowing three hits and a walk, a performance that added up to the best game score (90) we've seen this year in the minors. It's yet another reminder that the pre-draft scouting report that pegged Cingrani as a future reliever may have been a little light.

IN THE TEAM PHOTO
The worst thing a pitcher could see is Reds SS Billy Hamilton getting a lead off first base. The bad news for California League pitchers is that the Bakersfield shortstop has gotten much better at figuring out how to get to first. Hamilton, 21, was 7-for-29 this week with one extra-base hit, but he drew eight walks compared to four strikeouts, which allowed him to still swipe 12 bases in 15 attempts. Hamilton has walked 22 times compared to 17 strikeouts this month. The Cal League's hitting environments don't hurt, but Hamilton has managed to significantly cut his strikeout rate this year while upping his walk rate, it's a great combination for a leadoff hitter . . .

HELIUM WATCH
Jeimer Candelario, 3b, Cubs. Chicago skipped the 18-year-old Candelario, a standout in last year's Dominican Summer League, past the Arizona League to short-season Boise, and they've had no regrets through the first two weeks. The switch-hitter homered in three straight games from June 20-22 and leads the Northwest League with four bombs. Candelario has batted .314/.364/.569 through 51 at-bats, showcasing plenty of bat speed to go with plus pitch-recognition skills.
