View Full Version : Thursday August 21st minor league updates

08-21-2008, 01:06 PM
Louisville plays at 7:05 with lefty Adam Pettyjohn making the start. Louisville clinches their division with a win or a Toledo loss.

Chattanooga plays at 7:15 with lefty Pedro Viola starting.

Sarasota starts at 7:00 as Dallas Buck will take the mound. Buck threw five shutout inning while allowing only one hit in his first start with the Reds organization last Friday.

Dayton plays at 7:00 with Luis Montano making his first start since returning from the disabled list. Dayton has a 4.5 game lead in the wild card so a playoff spot is looking very likely at this point for Dayton.

Billings plays at 9:05 with Enrique Garcia pitching.

The GCL Reds are off today. Yonder Alonso's debut will wait another day.

The DSL Reds played at 10:30. Boxscore to come later.

08-21-2008, 07:02 PM
Is there any chance that Yonder could go to Dayton and play a couple more games as they are likely to make the playoffs instead of Sarasota...

08-21-2008, 07:12 PM
Dallas Buck threw a 1-2-3 first inning with a strikeout.

08-21-2008, 07:18 PM
Fraizer has a double

1-0 Sarasota after 1 1/2 innings after Frazier doubled and Parker singled him in.

08-21-2008, 07:40 PM
Buck struggled in the second inning. He loaded the bases up with one out but got a big strikeout for the second out, but the next batter followed with a groundball single to LF to make it a 2-1 game after two.

08-21-2008, 07:51 PM

Is that a pitch count thing?

Is that a pitch count thing?

Ground outs / Flyouts.

A good thing to keep track of for pitchers who will potentially play in GABP one day...

I think he means taking him out early, is that a pitch count thing.

"Adam Pettyjohn kept the Bulls at bay all night and the offense got three runs in the fourth to help the Louisville Bats earn a 6-3 victory and clinch the West Division Title in front of 8,503 fans. The title is the first since 2003 and Louisville's fourth International League West Division title."

Dorn:2-5, 19th HR

Turner:3-3, HR, 3 RBI

Valaika:2-4, HR, 2 RBI

Viola:6 IP, 5 hits, 3 runs, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

Manuel: 2 IP, 3 K

I really hope Manuel starts next year at Louisville. Here are his 2008 numbers at Chattanooga:

71 IP, 44 games, 44 hits, 14 BB, 88 K, 1.39 ERA, 0.82 WHIP, and 2 HR allowed. He really is dominating at AA.

Dayton lost 6-5.

Jones: 2-for-4 triple, walk
Cozart: 4-for-4 double, HBP
Soto: 1-for-5
Phipps: 3-for-5
Kahaulelio: 3-for-5 double

Cozart had a dreadful May. Since then, in 69 games, he has hit .301 with a .346 OBP and 10 HR. Not bad for a slick shortstop.

Never saw it mentioned anywhere, unless I overlooked it, but Buck was lifted early because he had back stiffness, fyi.
