Minor League Recap: Lugnuts don't need power to win.

Scoring in New Hampshire (2-1 win) and Dunedin (6-4 loss) remains low, but the Lugnuts (8-6 win) and the 51s (7-11) loss continue to hit well.

The Las Vegas 51s:

Darin Mastroianni: 0-for-6, strikeout. .279/.311/.302

Brett Lawrie: 3-for-5, double, strikeout. .462/.523/.718

Eric Thames: 3-for-4, 2 doubles, strikeout. .389/.477/.611

David Cooper: 2-for-4, walk. .361/.439/.528

Adam Loewen: 1-for-3, 2 walks, 2 strikeouts. .259/.344/.296 (10 strikeouts in 27 ABs = not good)

All pitchers gave up at least a run, but Rommie Lewis' implosion was the most notable: 4 runs on 3 walks and a hit, no outs recorded!

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats:

Adeiny Hechavarria: 1-for-4, strikeout. .200/.222/.257

Jonathan Diaz: 1-for-4, double. .318/.464/.409

Anthony Gose: 0-for-3, walk. .194/.237/.194

Michael McDade: 1-for-4. .361/.395/.444

Travis d'Arnaud: 0-for-3, walk. .077/.172/.115

Moises Sierra: 2-for-4, stolen base. .294/.368/.294 (back in the lineup after missing 3 days with an injury)

Chad Beck (26), having been promoted from Dunedin, went 8 innings, striking out 5 while walking none, 1 earned run against.

Ronald Uviedo, after a 2-strikeout inning for the save, has 1 hit and no runs against in 6.1 innings out of the bullpen, 9 strikeouts and 2 walks.

The Dunedin Blue Jays:

Brad McElroy (not much of a prospect) was notable because he drew 4 walks and went 0-for-1 as leadoff hitter.

Ryan Goins: 2-for-4, double, 2 strikeouts. .200/.200/.367

Sean Ochinko: 0-for-4, walk, strikeout. .133/.212/.200

Brad Glenn: 2-for-4, double. .333/.389/.667 (should be higher than high-A given his age, but nice that he;s giving Dunedin some offense)

Justin Jackson: 0-for-2, 2 walks, strikeout. .368/.458/.421

Kenny Wilson: 1-for-3, hit by pitch, 2 strikeouts. .333/.360/.500

Asher Wojciechowski: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K. Got 37.5% groundballs this time, gave up 2 home runs.

Frank Francisco: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Ready to come off the DL?

The Lansing Lugnuts:

Marcus Brisker: 2-for-4, walk, 2 strikeouts. Has a very weird .263/.440/.316 line with 9 strikeouts in 19 at bats, but also 6 walks. Not much of a prospect considering his previous years (where he also couldn't make contact enough or hit with any power).

Carlos Perez: 3-for-4, walk, strikeout. .409/.480/.545 (yeah I wouldn't worry about d'Arnaud much if Perez keeps this up)

Jake Marisnick: 1-for-4, strikeout. .250/.333/.292

K.C. Hobson: 1-for-3, walk. .167/.259/.208

Gustavo Pierre: 0-for-4, strikeout. .208/.269/.250

Marcus Knecht: 1-for-4, strikeout. .217/.308/.261

Michael Crouse: 1-for-2, 2 walks, strikeout, 2 stolen bases. .250/.400/.500

Oliver Dominguez: 3-for-4, double. .308/.357/.385

Misaul Diaz: 4.1 IP, 6 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 K. Seems bad, but wasn't hit hard with 83.3% of the balls in play against him being ground balls. His control was good last year in rookie and short season-ball, so hopefully he can turn it around.
