Minor League Recaps: 7/7

The 10 hours days are starting to catch up to me. Meh. Also, I'm watching Sportscenter right now and I just saw that R.J. Swindle made his major league debut for the Phillies tonight. I went to school with him at Charleston Southern University. Classis soft tosser who dominated the low minors and then got released and then picked up again after some time in an Indy league if I remember correctly. The Mets have a pitching prospect name Robert Parnell who I roomed with in college as well.

Richmond - Off


Chattanooga 3, Mississippi 4

  • M. Young 1-3 HR(2), 2 RBI, BB
  • M. Diaz 0-4 2K (.188 AVG)
  • K. Medlen 7IP 4H 3R 1BB 10K

This game is still going on but Kris Medlen had another solid outing as a starter. We could reasonably see this guy in Atlanta next year if he continues to show this kind of prowess as a starter. Our rotation could be very young. The Braves pull off the come from behind win in this one with a walk-off Sac Fly from Quentin Davis in the 9th.

Wilmington 2, Myrtle Beach 5

  • W. Cabrera 2-4 3B, RBI
  • T. Flowers 1-3 2B, BB, K
  • R. Gress 2-2 HR(1) RBI, BB
  • C. Vines 7IP5H 1R 0BB 5K

Tyler Flowers really is a walking machine. He now has a 63/65 BB/K rate on the season and has a .409 OBP. He is quietly putting together a solid season at Myrtle Beach in a horrible park at home and playing a demanding position. I'm impressed. Randy Gress made his debut in full season ball tonight and promptly homered to announce his arrival. He was an 18th Rnd pick out of Quinnipiac last season and struggled pretty heavily last year in the GCL and Appy leagues, but pummeled the Appy in a few games this season.

Greensboro 2, Rome 8

  • J. Heyward 2-4 2 RBI
  • F. Freeman 2-5 3B, RBI, K
  • J. Locke 7IP 3H 0R 0BB 6K

Jeff Locke turned in what was probably his best performance of the year and dropped his ERA below 4 for the first time this season. He has been getting stronger and stronger as the season wears on. Heyward left the game in the 8th inning. I'm not sure if he is injured or what but he has missed some noticeable time lately. Freddie Freeman continues to rake.

Danville - Off


Indians 5, Braves 9 - Suspended due to Rain
