OKC Game Postponed



Tulsa Drillers 7 vs Wichita Wind Surge  (Twins) 3

In his first AA start, Nick Nastrini flirted first with a perfecto and then with a no-no.  He issued a walk for his first baserunner after 5.2 IP.  With one out in the 7th, he gave up a HR for the first hit and loss of the shutout.  He got through 6.2 IP with 97 pitches/57 strikes.

The Wind Surge scored two runs in the bottom of the 9thNick Robertson inherited 3 runners from Guillermo Zuniga, but allowed a 2-out 2-run single.

Ismael Alcantara (3) and Abiatal Avelino (5), hit HRs in consecutive games.  Alcantara hit a 3-run big fly.  Andy Pages also hit a HR (22).

Leonel Valera is not on any top prospect lists but he continues to hit at the AA level. With 2 hits, he is now hitting .303/.378/.486/.864 in 218 AB. Avelino also had 2 hits on this night.

But the star on this night was Nick Nastrini.


Box Score


Great Lakes Loons 12 vs Lansing Lugnuts (A’s) 3

Carlos Duran stretched out to his longest outing of the season, 5.0 IP.  He threw 75 pitches/58 strikes.  Unfortunately, he allowed a 2-run HR and a solo HR in his 5.0 IP.  He also recorded 7 Ks with only 1 BB.

Cole Duensing and Aldry Acosta pitched 4.0 scoreless innings to finish off the Lugnuts.

Damon Keith was having a rough start to his Great Lakes promotion.  On this night he had 2 HRs (3).  Eddys Leonard (12) and Aldrich De Jongh (8) also hit HRs on the night.

Up 4-3, the Loons scored 4 in the 7th and the 8th.  In the 7th Austin Gauthier singled and came home on the De Jongh HR.  After a BB and single, José Ramos doubled to score two more.  In the 8th, Damon Keith tripled, and after 2 BB, Max Hewitt doubled home two.  An Eddys Leonard sac fly brought home a third run, and Jorbit Vivas singled to bring home Max Hewitt for the final run.

Box Score



Modesto Nuts (Seattle) 11 vs Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 6

Peter Heubeck started and lasted 3 innings.  He gave up 3 runs on 5 hits.  Jerming Rosario got roughed up in 4 IP.  He allowed 6 runs on 3 hits and 3 BBs, including a 2-run HR.  What Jerming did do is strike out 9 Ks.  Yamil Castillo allowed a 2-run HR in the 9thCarlos De Los Santos did have a good inning.  He retired all three batters he faced with 2 Ks.

This was another big night for Dalton Rushing.  He was 4-5 with 2 HRs.  He now has 5 HRs in 42 AB.  Rushing is putting up Diego Cartaya +++ numbers at RC. He is now hitting .452/.579/.881/1.460, with 5 HRs, 3 doubles, 13 RBI, 10 BB against 9 K.  I am not sure how much more of low A he needs.  But Great Lakes does not need another catcher, so that is why he is probably staying in RC.  He needs more catching experience.


Kyle Froemke had his first HR on the season.  Taylor Young had 2 hits.
