Reno Aces (Arizona) 3 vs OKC Dodgers 2

On the Mound

Mike Wright Jr. started and was burned for an unearned run in the 1st on a passed ball and throwing error.  He made one mistake, and that was a 2-out 2-run HR (by Stone Garrett).  That gave the Aces a 3-0 lead.  But the Aces were only able to get 2 more base runners for the remainder of the game.  Wright threw 6.0 innings.  Three relievers shut down Reno.  The star of the trio was LHRP Caleb Ferguson who threw an immaculate inning.  Methinks he is getting his command back.

Daniel Zamora and Marshall Kasowski finished off the final two innings.


At the Plate

The Dodgers pushed one across in the home half of the 3rd inning.  Jason Martin had a leadoff double.  Drew Avans walked, and Zach McKinstry singled to load the bases.  After the second out, Jake Lamb walked to force in a run.  The score stayed 3-1 until one out in the 9th when Jason Martin slugged his 6th HR of the season.  But that was as close as they would get.


Player of the Game

With a double, HR, and both runs scored, Jason Martin is the Player of the Game.


Box Score



Springfield Cardinals (St. Louis) 3 vs Tulsa Drillers 2 – Game 1

On the Mound

Landon Knack allowed only 2 baserunners in his 6.0 IP.  Unfortunately one of those was a Nick Dunn HR (2).  Guillermo Zuniga relieved Knack and gave up a 2 run jack of his own to make it a 3-0 lead.  After tonight’s game, Knack now has a 2.81 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in his 16.0 AA IP.


At the Plate

The Drillers were shut out for 6.  In the 7th, Andy Pages and Devin Mann singled.  With 2 outs, the runners moved up on a WP.  Both runners scored on a Kody Hoese single getting the Drillers within one.  Jeren Kendall pinch ran for Hoese, and immediately stole 2nd.  With a RISP and 2 outs, Justin Yurchak popped up to end the threat and game.

Pages and Mann had 2 hits apiece for Tulsa.


Player of the Game

Landon Knack was superb for 6.0 innings.

Springfield Cardinals (St. Louis) 0 vs Tulsa Drillers 2 – Game 2

On the Mound

Jose Martinez started and grinded through 5.1 scoreless IP.  He allowed 3 hits but issued 4 walks.  Austin Drury struggled a bit of his own with 2 BBs in 0.2 innings of work., but eventually got through the 6th unscathed.  Nick Robertson retired the side in order in the 7th for his 2nd save.  That is Nick’s 3rd consecutive outstanding effort after a rough start to the season.


At the Plate

Jacob Amaya singled to open the home half of the 1st.  Amaya moved to 2nd on a WP, moved to 3rd on a fly ball out by Andy Pages, and scored on a Kody Hoese ground out.

In the 2nd, Devin Mann hit his 5th HR of the season.  And that was it for the Drillers offense.


Player of the Game

I could go with Jose Martinez, but instead I am going to go with Devin Mann and his HR.


Box Score



Great Lakes Loons 4 vs South Bend Cubs 11 – 

On the Mound

Nick Nastrini had another off game, allowing 5 runs on 3 hits and 4 BBs in 3.0 IP.  Adam Scoggins allowed an unearned run in his 1.0 IP.  Then the roof caved in.  With Carlos Alejo on the hill, he walked 4 batters with one scoring and leaving the bases loaded for Julian Smith who followed AlejoSmith got a ground out, but not a DP and a run scored.

In his next inning, Smith allowed a pair of singles, a WP, and a ground out to score 1.  On his 2nd WP, the second run scored.  A walk and double scores a third run, and an 11-4 score that held up.

Jacob Cantleberry pitched the final 2.0 innings in scoreless fashion.


At the Plate

José Ramos hit his first Great Lakes HR in the second to put the Loons on the board.  The Loons put up 3 unearned runs in the 6th but could not get any closer.

The Loons could only muster 4 hits in this one.


Player of the Game

With his 1st GL HR, José Ramos is selected.

The Quakes were breezing – 5-0 and 6-1 before the Rawhide put up 11 in the 6thMaddux Bruns started and pitched 1.2 innings, walking 4 and striking out 3.  Adolfo Ramirez followed Bruns with 2.1 IP allowing an unearned run.

Roque Gutierrez pitched a scoreless 5th.  Heading into the 6th with a 5-1 lead, Gutierrez allowed 2 hits but got 2 outs.  Unfortunately he could not get the 3rd out, and with 2 more singles, the lead was down to 6-3.  Horacio Andujar followed Gutierrez.  He faced seven batters, and did not retire anyone.  When Jhan Zambrano relieved Andujar, the Rawhide were up 9-6 but the bases were loaded.  Zambrano gave up a bases clearing double and when the dust settled, the Rawhide put up 11 runs and took a 12-6 lead.

The 2020 draft is starting to show extreme promise. Nothing at the 2016 level, but great to see.

as is, superficially, Luis Rodriguez. Not only with the bat, but I think he’s recently shown a nice arm. Was that always part of his profile?

  1. Gonna need low cost solutions across the board.

what do you hear about Dodgers player development? From what I read there’s nRy a non-believer. Obviously not 💯 in developing but that’s a silly bar to set


Depth to be packaged in trades. That’s exactly what I was thinking when reading this post.

So…. who are the keepers?


Perhaps that’s the plan then? Develop pitching internally and then for position players a combination of internal and free agent?
