Marc Rzepczynski got the rehab start and was great. 7 2/3 innings, 3 hits, no runs, 1 walk and 9 Ks. We should be set if one of our starters has to miss a few games.
Jesse Carlson finished the game with 1 1/3 scoreless innings, 1 walk. ERA isn't great, but 28 Ks and 8 walks over 30 2/3 innings is solid.
Brett Wallace was 3-5 with three singles. I'm not sure why people were down on him when he had a bad week or so. .298/.357/.503 with 34 extra-base hits on the season, not amazing considering the environment but he's holding his own.
Edwin Encarnacion was 1-3 with a walk in his first AAA game. He could put up some huge numbers in the PCL. Edwin also made his first error.
J.P. Arencibia was 1-5 and is hitting .291/.342/.574 on the season with 36 extra-base hits. Nice bounce-back season so far.
Brad Emaus continued his hot hitting, going 2-4 with a double. .361/.425/.583 since his promotion to Vegas with 8 doubles, a triple, and 2 dingers in 21 games.
Adam Loewen had a big day, going 2-4 with a home run and a triple as well as a walk. Loewen is hitting .279/.369/.491 on the season with 29 extra-base hits.
Eric Thames was 2-3 with a walk and 2 doubles. Would be nice to see him come up out of his slump as he's been really struggling lately (.222/.282/.389 over his last 10 games) but his overall numbers (.260/.330/.461 with 12 homers) are still decent. Needs to learn to hit lefties, though.
David Cooper was 1-5 with a single. .222/.288/.397 with 10 home runs and 14 doubles, but with a .227 BABIP mlb splits thinks it's been bad luck - luck-adjusted line .303/.362/.506.
Darrin Mastroianni was 2-5 with a walk. .297/.387/.390.
Shawn Bowman was 0-4 with a walk but as you know he is having a great season. .312/.394/.578 at New Hampshire, though he is 25.
Tim Collins and Adrian Martin combined for 3 Ks and no walks over 3 scoreless innings.
Joel Carreno pitched a great game as the Jays beat Tampa 2-0. 7 Ks, 1 walk, and 2 hits over 6 scoreless innings.
Tyler Pastornicky provided all the offense, going 1-3 with a 2-run home run. Ty is having himself a nice little season, .259/.349/.382 with 5 homers. If he could bring that average up a little his numbers would really look pretty.
None of the rest of the team did much of anything at the plate, with Brian Van Kirk getting the only other hit (a single) and no one walking. O fers for Brad McElroy, Mark Sobolewski, Adeiny Hechavarria, Yan Gomes.
Lansing: (most recent game, June 20th, thanks ClintB)
Matt Fields pitched well in a losing effort, 2 runs over 6 innings with 3 Ks, 3 hits, and a walk.
Kenny Wilson 0-3 with a walk. .249/.371/.303 with 7 doubles, 2 triples, and 22 steals (67%). Have to love the eye, but the hit tool needs work.
Ryan Goins was 2-4 with a double. Has been so good Justin Jackson has been relegated to playing second. .309/.374/.430 on the season.
Speaking of Justin Jackson, 1-3 with an RBI single.
Kevin Ahrens was 0-4 with 3 Ks. Hasn't started to click yet.
Antonio Jimenez and Sean Ochinko were both 2-4 with 2 singles each. Both are having nice seasons.
I mentioned 2010 draftee Asher Wojociechowski yesterday and his 4 scoreless innings in his first start for the team.
Marcus Knecht was 1-4 with a two-RBI single and a walk.
C Carlos Perez was 1-5 with a single.
Marcus Brisker was 2-4 with a double and a walk. Marcus also swiped 2 bases.
Lance Durham was 1-4 with a home run.
Gustavo Pierre was 2-5 with a double.
Egan Smith had a good second start. 6 innings, 3 runs (0 earned), 4 Ks and no walks. Brisker and Smith himself were responsible for the errors.
Jake Marsinick was 2-4 with a double and a walk. The season only just started, but he's off to a good start. .300/.462/.400.
Moises Sierra is back, which is great news. He didn't have a hit yesterday, but all that really matters is that he's healthy. I'd expect him to make his way back up to AA pretty soon.
Chris Hawkins, another 2010 draftee, was 2-3 with a double and a walk.
Song title from the new Stars record. I am enjoying it quite a bit so far. Also, U-S-A! U-S-A!!
