Gagliano's Saturday Farm Report 3-1

Gagliano's Saturday Farm Report  3-1

Memphis won 9-5. Wainwright had another strong game, 7 ip, 6 h, 1 r, 1 bb, 7 k. For the season, he's now thrown 41.1 ip, 40 h, 5 BB, 34 K, 1.96 ERA. And only 1 HR in all those innings. Among guys with at least 30 innings, he's second in the league in ERA. Memphis has three of the top five in K's in the league. Gissell leads with 40, Wainwright is 4th with 34, and Reyes is 5th with 33. Then again, Wainwright is 1st in innings, Gissell 3rd. From the bullpen, Journell did the job, 1 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 0 bb, 2 k. Cali was out of whack, 01. ip, 4 h, 4 r, 1 bb, 1 k. White closed it out, 0.2 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 0 bb, 1 k. Seabol was 4 of 5, HR, Berger 3 of 5, HR, Nelson 2 of 3, BB, and Gonzalez 2 of 5. Cardona made his Memphis debut, going 1 of 4 with a HR. Seabol is seeing the ball. (Sorry.) After an awful start, he's now at .323 BA, .364 OBP, .636 SLG. If he keeps going this way for a couple weeks, I'd dump Cedeno and give him a try with the big league club. Rodriguez was released to make room for Cali or Journell as Thompson was moved up. Cummings moves to the rotation. Pearce and Parrott are apparently throwing some pitches. Memphis is now 16-11, good for 1st, 1 game up.

Springfield won 6-4. Pals went 5.2 ip, 8 h, 4 r, 1 bb, 4 k and popped a HR. Scalamandre struggled, 0.0 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 0 k. But Doyne and Kinney closed it out, 3.1 ip, 2 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 3 k. I hope those two don't burn out. Schutzenhofer was 2 of 4, Estrada 2 of 5. Springfield is 12-16, 6.5 out.

Palm Beach dried out, but lost 4-0. Adamczyk went 6 ip, 7 h, 4 r, 2 er, 1 bb, 6 k. Schweitzer, Batista, and Worrell were solid down the stretch, 3 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 3 k. [Dang. That reminds me...I forgot to set my VCR to record the Derby. Dang.] Palm Beach is 13-14, 3.5 out.

Quad Cities won 4-3 thanks to a two run 8th inning HR by Hammonds. Parisi went 6 ip, 5 h, 2 r, 1 er, 3 bb, 4 k. Hammond was 2 of 3, HR, Shepherd and Swackhamer 2 of 4. Robertson was moved into the rotation, McClellan to the pen. The Swing are 13-14, 4.5 out.

Combined, then, the farm teams are 54-55. Here's hoping for a winning day so they can cross .500.
