Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Friday, 4-12: Tim Crabbe, Pensacola. In the first game of a twin-bill, the 25-year-old, six-foot-four, good-stuff, often-wild righty posted a line of 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K. Curtis Partch fanned the side in the seventh to close out the 1-0 victory. Crabbe is one of those "if he can ever get it together" guys. Maybe he can.
The game's only run was driven in by Tucker Barnhart, who was 2-2 with a walk. In the second game, Yohan Pino had a shorter but also dominating start: 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K. But the Wahoos lost that one, 2-1.
A couple performances worth noting in Bakersfield's first victory of the season after eight losses: Yorman Rodriguez delivered an eighth-inning, two-out, bases-loaded double to bring in the tying and winning runs. And Kyle Waldrop homered for the second game in a row.
