Re: Minor League Updates: Monday 4/15/2013
Bakersfield just getting underway. Carlos Contreras is indeed on the hill for the 1-10 Blaze. CC sets them down in 1-2-3 fashion with one strike out.
Sammy Diaz led of the game with a double but the Blaze couldn't get him around. Contreras walked a batter but struck out a couple in the second.
Juan Silverio has been moved up to the 3-spot. Bakersfield goes quietly - is there any other way? - in the second.
The Inland Empire attacks first in the top of the third, launching one over the wall. They lead 1-0. Contreras has struck out four through three.
Bakersfield erupts for three in the fourth. Wright walked and Duran singled him to third. One run scored on a Kyle Waldrop ground ball. Yorman Rodriguez came to the plate and lifted a 355 foot can of corn to center. Fortunately for Yorman the center field wall is just 354 feet away from home plate. So his can of corn resulted in a two-run blast.
Contreras has 7Ks in five frames. Blaze lead 3-1.
Ryan Wright, Juan Silva and Dominic D'Anna have added singles along the way.
Carlos Contreras has just chalked up the first Blaze quality start of 2012. He has worked six and given up a lone tally. He has allowed two hits, walked a couple of 66ers and struck out 8th.
Alexander Burkhard - 6'8" - just fanned 6'7" Juan Duran.
It is Carl's Jrs. Dollar Monday. Dollar dogs tonight. Yum!
It is Yorman's night for sure. He hits a another pop fly to center. On this particular play the Empire center fielder broke back on and then could not recover in time. It landed softly for a double.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
