04-24-2022 MiLB Summary

OKC Dodgers 1 vs Sacramento River Cats (Giants) 2 

The 04-24-2022 MiLB summary lists that OKC lost to Sacramento on Sunday 2-1.  The loss gave the two teams a split of the 6-game series.

The Cats scored a single run in the 1st on three singles.  The Cats scored a solo run in the second on a soft line-drive single and ground out, and a soft pop fly to score the run.  The Cats put runners on base in every other inning except 1, one but could not score.

On the other hand, the Dodgers could not string together enough offense to score any runs until the 6thDrew Avans got a bunt single, and moved while running on the pitch, got to second on an Eddy Alvarez 4-3 ground out.  After a Miguel Vargas K, Jake Lamb scorched a 2-out ground-rule double down the right-field line to score Avans.

On the Mound

Mike Wright, Jr. started for the Dodgers and came in with a WHIP of 2.25.  And the first two innings indicated that he was still going down this path.  3 runners in the 1st inning, 2 runners in the 2nd inning, 2 runners in the 3rd, and 1 runner in the 4th.  He threw 68 pitches (48 strikes) through 4.0.  In those 4.0 IP, 2 runs, 7 hits, 1 BB, and 5 K.

Tommy Kahnle, Jon Duplantier, and Carson Fulmer relieved Wright, Jr.  Combined they threw 4.0 innings and allowed 0 runs, 2 hits, 1 BB, and 2 K.  The hit off Kahnle was a ground ball up the 1B line that hit the bag and bounced into RF.  The second hit was a double off Carson Fulmer.  While on my Carson Fulmer watch, Carson was not overly impressive, but you do not have to be when you can still get outs.  Duplantier was the most impressive of the trio.  He allowed two base runners (HBP/BB) in his 2.0 IP.  He was the only pitcher to get the Cats to go down in order.


At the Plate

Jake Lamb had two hits, one a run-scoring ground-rule double.  Kevin Pillar, Ryan Noda, and Drew Avans each had a single.  In the second, the first two batters singled.  Pillar got a broken-bat single and went to third on a Ryan Noda line single.  Runners on the corner, and nobody out.  Andy Burns struck out looking on a pitch, he clearly disagreed with the pitch.  Jason Martin then hit into a 6-4-3 DP.


Player of the Game

It is hard again to come up with a player, but I choose Jake Lamb and his two hits, and the sole RBI.  Jon Duplantier was the other option.

Tulsa Drillers 8 vs Springfield Cardinals 12

On the Mound

Top prospect right-hander Bobby Miller did not have the start he would have liked giving up two runs in the bottom of the second inning on a single, a double, and a triple. The third inning did not go any better as Miller gave up a pair of singles followed by a home run.

He was relieved by right-hander Nick Robertson who gave up a pair of runs in his two innings dropping the Drillers into a 7-2 deficit.

Right-hander Guillermo Zuniga struck out the side in the bottom of the sixth inning but ran into some trouble in the bottom of the seventh inning. Following a leadoff double by right fielder Moises Gomez the Cardinals plated a run on a single by another Pages. That is catcher Pedro Pages who had four runs batted in on the day.

Right-hander Zach Plunkett came on in the bottom of the eighth inning and ran into some heavy bats giving up a pair of two-run home runs and putting the Drillers at a 12-6 disadvantage going into the top of the ninth inning.


At the Plate

Andy Pages started what the Drillers hoped would be another hit parade against the Cardinals with his second home run of the season in the top of the first inning giving Tulsa a quick 1-0 lead.

In the top of the second inning, Jacob Amaya picked up where he left off on Saturday by hitting a solo home run to left-center field on the first pitch he saw from Cardinals pitcher Garrett Williams.

In the top of the fifth inning, Andy Pages cut the deficit to 7-4 by driving in two more runs scoring Brandon Lewis who had singled, and Michael Busch who was hit by a pitch.

Michael Busch brought the Drillers two runs closer in the top of the seventh inning with a two-run home run bringing in James Outman who was hit by a pitch.

In the top of the ninth catcher, Hunter Feduccia fished the Drillers scoring with a two-run home run to right field.

Lake County Captains (Guardians) 9 vs Great Lakes Loons 6

On the Mound

Kyle Hurt started for the Loons and had his second consecutive good three-inning start. Once again the 6’3”/240 lb. right-hander had three scoreless innings on one hit, one walk, and three strikeouts.

Hurt was replaced in the fourth inning by right-hander Cole Duensing who had a clean inning with one strikeout.

Heading into the top of the fifth inning Great Lakes had a 6-0 lead. Left-hander Jacob Cantleberry came on in the top of the fifth and left with two outs and a lead now at 6-4. He loaded the base on walks and served up a grand slam to Captain’s first baseman Joe Naranjo.

Left-hander Julian Smith was able to get the last out in the inning but began the sixth inning by serving up another home run cutting the Loons lead to 6-5.

Right-hander Aldry Acosta replaces Smith with two outs and got the third out on a one-pitch ground out. Acosta was not able to silence the Captains in the seventh and gave up the tying run on a single and a Joe Naranjo double.

Right-hander Braydon Fisher pitched a clean eighth inning. Left-hander Adam Scoggins was the seventh pitcher brought in by manager Austin Chubb and did not fare very well in the ninth inning. He was touched up for a single walk followed by a home run leaving the Loons behind 9-6.

A Loons record was set when Kevin Malisheski was called upon to close out the ninth inning, the eighth pitcher used by Great Lakes.


At the Plate

The Loons started early with two runs in the bottom of the first inning with Jonny Deluca and Aldrich De Jongh scoring on a Zac Ching single.

They added another run in the third inning on Leonel Valera’s third home run of the season.

They struck again in the fourth on a pair of doubles by Valera and Eddys Leonard and took a 6-0 lead into the fifth. Leonard’s double drove in two.

The fun at the plate was over after the fourth inning as the Loons failed to score again.


Player of the Game

Leonel Valera with his home run and double driving in two and scoring twice gets the nod over Eddys Leonard who had a pair of hits and two runs batted in.



Box Score


Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 2 vs Modest0 Nuts 4

On the Mound

Nineteen-year-old Jerming Rosario started for the Quakes and worked through the first three innings and had his longest outing of the year. The young right-hander allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out four.

Right-hander Orlando Ortiz-Mayr followed Rosario and pitched the next three innings. He gave up an unearned run on two hits and three walks along with five strikeouts.

Another 19-year-old pitched the seventh inning. Left-hander Ronan Kopp had another strong outing with no hits allowed one walk and two strikeouts. On the season he has struck out 16 in 6.1 innings. He will have to tighten up his control a bit as he has walked eight.

Right-hander Joan Valdez finished up in the eighth inning allowing a fourth Modesto run on a hit, two walks and two strikeouts.

Quakes pitchers struck out 11 and walked nine in their eight innings pitched.


At the Plate

The offense could only muster up five hits.

Their first run came across in the top of the third inning on a Damon Keith double bringing home Yeiner Fernandez who was on base with a ground out.

The second run came in the sixth inning and came home in a similar fashion. Austin Gauthier collected his seventh RBI of the season driving in Luis Yanel Diaz with a double. Diaz was on base with a ground out.


Player of the Game

Offensively there was not much action so the pick goes to Orlando Ortiz-Mayr for his three innings of work on the mound. The lone run he gave up did score on his throwing error to third base. However, limiting the Nuts to two hits and striking out five were good days of work.
