Minor League Recap May 21: Ricky Romero, Dustin McGowan

USA TODAY Sports

Our minor league system went 2-2 today.

Buffalo Bisons (26-18) beat Charlotte Knights 8-7

  • Ricky Romero pitched 5 pretty good innings, but then he walked 4 straight batters to start the 6th (apparently the first one on 5 balls, the umpire messed up). Before that he went 5 innings, allowed 2 walks, 4 hits, 2 k, 2 earned, which would have been a big step forward. Then it all unraveled.
  • Dustin McGowan pitched for the 2nd time for the Bisons. It did not go well, he gave up a walk, got a fly out, 2 singles, another walk and then was pulled. 2 hits, 2 walks, 3 earned, 1 out. It was all going to smooth.
  • Thad Weber: 2.2, 3 hits, 1 walk, 2 k, in his first appearance since we picked him off waivers.
  • Neil Wagner: 1.0, 1 k. Win. 0.96.
