When I Was a Boy I Was Counfounded By You: 7/9 Minor League Recap

Las Vegas beat Salt Lake 9-8 for its second consecutive win by that margin:

  • Brett Wallace DHed and was 2-4 with two singles and a walk
  • J.P. Arencibia was 1-4 with yet another home run, his 23rd of the season.
  • Josh Roenicke got the win despite giving up 4 runs in an inning and a third. 
  • Jesse Carlson pitched well in relief (1 1/3 innings, 1 K, 1 hit, no walks or runs)

New Hampshire put the hurt on Binghampton, 10-2:

  • Kyle Drabek got the win with an excellent outing - 6 scoreless innings, 5 hits (3 were doubles so he was pretty fortunate not giving up any runs but still), with 5 Ks and 1 walk.  When guys were making contact against Kyle, it was on the ground - he had 9 groundouts and just 3 outs in the air.  3.03 ERA for Kyle now, with 46 walks and 85 Ks over 113 innings. 
  • Trystan Magnuson pitched a scoreless 9th.  1 K, 1 hit, no walks.  40/7 K/BB ratio over 47 innings. 
  • Darrin Mastroianni was 2-5 with a walk.  He also stole his 32nd base of the season.  .305/.406/.399
  • David Cooper was 2-5 with a double.  .235/.295/.439 with 34 extra-base hits.  1.170 OPS over his last 10 games.
  • Shawn Bowman was 2-4 with a 3 run home run, his 16th of the season.
  • Brian Jeroloman was 2-5 with his 7th homer of the season.  .278/.446/.455. 
  • Eric Thames was 1-3 with a triple and 2 walks.  He really seems to have a nice eye at the plate.  .279/.359/.480. 
  • Travis Snider was 0-4 with 3 strikeouts.  He did have an RBI. 

Dunedin lost 7-6 to Brevard County:

  • Travis d'Arnaud was 2-6 with a double.  .282/.329/.441. 
  • Mark Sobolewski was 2-5 with a couple of RBI. 
  • B^3 friend Brad McElroy was 3-4 with a walk. 
  • Justin McClanahan was 2-5 with a home run.  .255/.322/.396.
  • Chad Jenkins had a not-great start, getting through 5 innings while giving up 4 runs.  He did strike out 3 and walk just 1 and he was getting plenty of grounders (8 GO/3 AO) so maybe just bad luck/bad defense.  Jenkins has a 6.04 ERA in four starts since his promotion.   

Lansing shut out Great Lakes 6-0:

  • Egan Smith had a great start, going 6 scoreless innings with a walk and 5 Ks.

Auburn lost 4-3 to Hudson Valley:

  • Lance Durham hit his 4th home run of the young season. 
  • Matt Johnson also homered, and that was about it for Auburn's notable offensive performances

  • Jake Marsinick was 3-4 with a double.  .293/.391/.483.
