So close... Almost an organizational sweep, but the Grizzlies fall in extra's on throwing error.

Fresno drops to Salt Lake City Bees in bizarre 11th

Grizzlies mixed bag affair game ends with throwing error.  It doesn't bode well when you are 3 for 16 with RISP leaving 10 men on base, despite that they were in this game and had it won in the 11th...  The BS and loss for Hoyt looks bad but some suspect throwing and fielding on the final play allowed the Bee's Krauss to score from first when it could have been a tied game going to the 12.  Despite the final errant throw by Domingo, nice box line for him, nice to see him heating up.  He was the only player across the org to hit a homer, so that's nice.  Good/decent outing by Jake Buchanan to keep him in that spot starter/insurance conversation for the MLB squad.  Also nice job by relievers Jankowski and Perez.

Hooks take care of Urias, Seager of the Drillers to stop 3 game losing streak

Solid game by the pitching staff lead by SP Kent Emanuel, and finished off by Lambson and Minor to complete the shutout.  The offense was good but not great, they did have a couple extra base hits and 5 BB but left 19 runners on base (ouch).  Would really like to see Moran heating it up, especially around a great lineup as this.  Kemp continues to do what he does, love it!  Still not seeing the power from Gregor that we want but it's still early.

  • Kemp 2B, 2 for 5, 1 RBI
  • Moran DH 0 for 4, 2 SO
  • Gregor 1B, 2 for 4, 1 SO
  • Meredith RF, 1 for 3
  • Mier SS, 1 for 4, 3B, 3 RBI, 5 LOB...
  • Nash LF, 1 for 2, 2B, 2 BB (!), SO, 3 LOB
  • White 3B, 0 for 2, 2 BB
  • Emanuel SP, 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 SO
  • Lambson RP, 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 SO, HLD
  • Minor RP, 1 IP
JetHawks, McDonald drives in Moon to win it in 11th from Rancho Cucamonga

Crazy game, check out the game recap over here at the Lancaster site to get a full taste.  The maverick is heating up, the one thing about his game that is starting to worry me is that he is not seeing a lot of pitches.  That doesn't seem to matter much for Altuve and he may be able to replicate that but in 6 at bats tonight he saw 8 pitches, and 3 of those came from a 3 pitch K...  Still love his stuff and makeup though.  Another game where they left 24 guys on base, this being a 11 inning affair helps that ratio a bit.

  • Phillips CF, 3 for 6, 3 H, 2B, SO
  • Moon SS, 3 for 5, 2B, BB, 2 RBI, 3 SB, 1 CS (guys is running all over the place)
  • Davis 3B, 2 for 5, RBI, SO
  • Reed DH, 1 for 5, 2 RBI, Sac Fly
  • McDonald 1B, 2 for 5, RBI, BB, 3 SO
  • Mitchell LF, 3 for 6, 2B, 2 SO
  • Feliz SP, 4 IP, 1 H (nice), 2 R (1 ER), 6 SO, 3 BB (great outing except for the BB...)
  • Morton RP, 4 IP, 7 H, 2 R (0 ER), 3 SO
  • Sanudo RP, 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 SO, 0 BB
Red hot River Bandits comeback

Comeback with by the Bandits in the 8th to beat the Chiefs 4 - 3.  Quad Cities is on a tear, have won its fifth straight series.  Fisher and Ritchie combine to produce the 2 runs needed in the 8th for the win.

  • Tanielu 3B, 0 for 3, BB, K, reached 4 times (HBP, BB and 2 fielding errors by the SS)(wonder if the SS owes him money?)
  • Gonzalez C, 2 for 4, RBI, BB, SO, SB
  • Bottger RF, 1 for 4, BB, 2 SO, 4 LOB
  • Trompiz 2B, 2 for 5, 2 SO, 4 LOB

We are starting to ramp up draft profiles and I am interested to know of any prospects that interest you for the later rounds, like rounds 3-15.  Guys like my cousin Nolan Kingham, brother of Nick Kingham with the Pirates, or Mac Marshall who is slated to go round 3.
