Mitch White Continues To Grow

Salt Lake City Bees (LAA) 3 vs OKC Dodgers 8

On the Mound

The story of this game is Mitch White.  After pitching 5.0 innings of 2 hit shutout innings against the ChiSox, Mitch White was summarily optioned to OKC.  The option did not seem to phase Mitch.  On Sunday, Mitch took the mound against the Bees.  White pitched 5.2 IP (72 pitches/45 strikes).  He did not allow a run or hit.  He did walk 2 and 1 HBP.  He never had any serious traffic.

White is ready, willing, and looks to be able to assume a backend ML rotation spot.

Jon Duplantier followed White and got roughed up, in his 1.1 IP.  He allowed all three runs.  Garrett Cleavinger and Justin Hagenman pitched the final two scoreless innings.


At the Plate

Miguel Vargas hit his 10th HR in the 3rd inning.


Drew Avens had a bases clearing double in the 5th inning.


Tony Wolters had two hits including his 1st triple.

Northwest Arkansas Naturals (KC) 7 vs Tulsa Drillers 3 

On the Mound

Well it finally happened.  Gavin Stone looked mortal.  He allowed 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 BBs.  After showcasing a keen strikeout pitch, Gavin was only able to muster 3.  It just was not Gavin’s night.

Nick Robertson struck out 5 in his 2.0 IP.

Guillermo Zuniga allowed 3 runs in his 0.1 IP.

Two pitchers who have been battered a bit, Jose Adames and Tanner Dodson, pitched the final 2.2 IP without allowing any hits or runs, and recorded 5 Ks between them.


At the Plate

Leonel Valera continued to prove he belongs in AA with 2 more hits.  Ryan Ward also had two hits.  Jeren Kendall hit a HR in B2B games.  He also had two walks reaching base three times.

Great Lakes Loons 9 vs Dayton Dragons (Reds) 5 

On the Mound

Kendall Williams started and was breezing for the first three innings.  He allowed 1 hit and struck out 8.  He had 49 pitches (34 strikes).  However, rain hit Dayton, and the game was delayed for 2 hours.  When play resumed, Williams was obviously not in the game.  Jeff Belge entered the fourth and pitched a scoreless inning.

Ryan Sublette and Jacob Cantleberry allowed 3 runs in the 5th and 7th, before Cole Percival put out the threat with two inherited runners stranded.  Percival continues to shine in relief with a scoreless 8th.


At the Plate 

Diego Cartaya went 2-4 with a double.  He also walked to reach base three times.

Jorbit Vivas was 2-3 with 2 walks.  Jonny DeLuca was 2-5.

At the Plate

Scoring 15 runs on 17 hits, several Quakes batters had good days, but none better than 20 year old catcher Nelson QuirozNelson had a game he will never forget; 4 hits, 3 HRs and a double, and 6 RBIs.
