Dayton tied it in the 9th on a HR by Nick O'Shea and lost it in the 10th, 3-2. Got good pitching from Wes Mugarian and Dan Jensen. O'Shea and Yorman had two hits apiece.

Pensacola leads 3-1 in the third behind Corcino. Mark Fleury drove in two with a double and Corcino singled in the other run.

Beau Amaral delivered his first professional HR and Billings leads 5-1 after six. Amaral and Seth Mejias-Brean have two hits. Good to see Winker and Carlos Sanchez back in the lineup. Winker has a double (and a walk, of course) and Sanchez drove in two with a single.

Check out Stephenson's line: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, O BB, 9 K. Like.

I can't wait to see what Bob Stephenson does next year. I'm feeling BIG things.

Stand-up inside the park HR for Slidin' Billy in Pensacola on a ball in the right center gap. The RF dove for it and missed it and it was over from there.

Beau Mills added one for the Hoos. It's 6-1 after eight.

Corcino: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K.

Billings wins 9-3. Mejias-Brean went 3-4 with a 2B. Sanchez had a slam, two hits and 6 RBIs. Amaral finished 2-5 with the HR.

Led by Stephenson, Billings pitchers fanned 18 on the day. Erik Miller and Jimmy Moran managed to K four batters in the ninth. Miller's peculiar line: .1 IP, 0 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K.

Louisville, with doubles by Gregorius and Xavier Paul, has scored twice to take a 2-1 lead in the sixth. Pedro Villarreal has given up 8 hits but only the one run.

First-place Pensacola won 6-2. Andrew Means and Miguel Rojas contributed two hits to the cause.

Corcino's ERA is down to 3.05.

LaMarre with another outfield assist. He reminds me of Gerrado Parra with the D-Backs who should be starting for a MLB team somewhere.

Corcino's overall ERA dropped to 3.05. His K:BB ratio improved to 94:45. (That's 2.08. Solid.)

Hamilton's AA numbers (just 20 ABs, five games): .235/ .350/ .500/ 1:1 K:BB ratio. One triple, one homer. Slugger. ;)

In both AA and A+, Hamilton hit his one homer within the first week of play. Apparently, he wanted to get it out of the way quickly.

Hamilton's HR was inside the park.

Louisville finishes it out, 3-2. Villarreal gave up one run in seven IP, and Hoover surrendered one over the final two, picking up the save. H-Rod and Costanzo had two hits.

Noticed that the Mustangs had Gabriel Rosa at SS for the first 6 innings. I'll speculate that Zach Vincej is headed to Billings when he is assigned.

Henry Rodriguez is up to .351/ .368/ .459 in his brief time in AAA (9 games).

Corcino fastball was sitting at 92-94 with his fastball today touched 95 his slider 84-87.Lost his control a little bit in the 3rd otherwise was pretty much in control.

Curtis Partch touched 97 with his fastball looked really good as well.

Lamare has a cannon arm in center just a few observations from todays game.

Video of Hamilton's inside-the-park HR. (It was choppy on my computer. But impressive nevertheless.)

Sweet. Nice to see Eric Davis hanging out in the dugout. My favorite player as a kid. Anyone know if he is an instructor or was he just visiting for the game?

I was sort of depressed earlier in the year with our system after the trades that sent away some of our higher level talent, but I've gotta say that I like what I'm seeing from our guys now.

Also, thank you to all of you who keep up this Minor League forum with up-to-date information. I would know nothing about our farm system without the information you guys bring here.

Pensacola leads 3-1 in the third behind Corcino. Mark Fleury drove in two with a double and Corcino singled in the other run.

Did the umpires stop the game and give Fleury the ball for his first hit ever?

Kidding. (Not really.)

Means gunned down a runner going to 3rd today and both held basehits that should have been doubles to singles....Lamare has been really impressive in the outfield all season

ED is a roving instructor in the minors, rotates between minor league teams, and IIRC, he sometimes hangs out with the Reds too.

Thanks for the info. Partch has had two bad games as a reliever this year, combining for 8 runs. He has given up 1 run in his other 26 games out of the Blue Wahoos bullpen.

Love seeing the Mejias-Brean line. I'm liking him for big things down the line.

Partch has stood out to me on a few occasions....I had no clue who he was until i saw him throw 98 and then 99 on back to back pitches in relief a few weeks back...His fastball sits at 93-96 never seen him throw one under 93 i believe.

Does Partch have anything in the arsenal besides a fastball? The organization has stuck with him through a lot of ugly appearances, so I was wondering if he had any sort of potential as a fringe prospect.

Bakersfield lost last night, 7-5, despite home runs by Lohman, Mattair and Duran.

I know he's old for the league and it's a very small sample, but Brackman might be showing some improvement. He hasn't walked a batter in his past three relief appearances. In his last four, his line is: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K.

He has allowed a run in 3 of his 26 appearances as a reliever in AA this year. Of course those 3 games accounted for 9 runs. His breaking ball is inconsistent, but a solid pitch. Probably average, but sometimes a little worse, sometimes a little better.

He's given up seven more hits than innings pitched, gives up taters at a 0.9 rate, walks a bunch (3.9/9), and Ks 8.0/9.

I like the mid- to high-90s fastball, but, at this point, don't see much beyond a guy like Scott Carroll.

Completely different guy as a reliever though. Only AA numbers:


Entire Season ERA IP H HR BB SO GO/AO
Reliever 2.56 31.2 27 2 10 30 0.84
Starter 9.18 16.2 28 3 11 13 1.69


The difference is startling. He walked more in half the innings. What is really interesting is the change in GO/AO. While I prefer the actual breakdown of all BIP and not just outs, that much of a difference is going to show up in either way you break it down.

I'd like to see Stephenson get a few starts in Dayton. He's proved himself worthy of that opportunity by his performance in Billings.

Jose Fernandez and Dylan Bundy were both HS pitchers drafted in the same round who are now in A+. Every pitcher is different, but I don't think it would be rushing Stephenson to see what he could do in Dayton at this point.
