Corner IF Can't Carry Fresno in 9-8 Loss
Despite first baseman Matt Duffy and third baseman Matt Dominguez knocked a pair of bombs, the offense was not able to make up the nine runs surrendered by Luis Cruz and Jason Stoffel. It is good news that Matty D hit a home run since it's his first of the season. His sub-.300 OBP is quite saddening.
On the plus side, Jordan Jankowski picked up four strikeouts. Big deal. He face four batters. Sat them all down. He now has 23 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings. Downside is the 13 walks.
- Luis Cruz-4 2/3 IP, 12 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR, 4/1 GO/AO, 88/55 P/S
- Jordan Jankowski-1 1/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 SO
- Jason Stoffel-2/3 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO, 1 HR
- James Hoyt-1 1/3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 SO
- Carlos Correa SS-1-4, BB
- L.J. Hoes LF-2-4, 2B, BB
- Matt Duffy DH-4-5, 2B, HR, SO
- Matt Dominguez 3B-2-5, 2B, HR, SO
Hooks Pitching Staff Dominates
Vincent Velasquez has been mowing hitters down since coming off the DL. After last night, his second start, he has sixteen strikeout in just nine innings. The walks are a little high, mostly because of last night. But he's showing a great ability to strike em out in AA.
Aaron West had rough season last year. It didn't go like Lancaster. But, he's back and healthy. The walks are back down and the strikeouts are getting better. Last night was a big step forward.
- Vincent Velasquez-4 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 6 SO, 4/1 GO/AO, 76/45 P/S
- Angel Baez-1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
- Aaron West-3 IP, 1 H, 0 H, 1 BB, 5 SO, 1/3 GO/AO, 41/31 P/S
- Jandel Gustave-1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO
- Tony Kemp 2B-2-4, 2B, BB, 2 SO, 2 SB
- Telvin Nash DH-1-3, 2B, BB, 2 SO
- Leo Heras LF-2-4, 2 2B
Lancaster Goes to Extras
It's 1 AM and I'm slammed tomorrow at work. So...here's a link to the box score.
BIAS AGAINST WEST COAST GAMES
Quad Cities Continues to Win
This team continues to be impressive. Chris Lee turned in one of his best games to lead the pitching staff. Jordan Mills made his season debut and did exactly what he did last season with limiting walks.
Offensively, Kristan Trompiz was the star of the show by launching his third home run. Tromp is still quite young and has definitely held his own this season.
- Chris Lee-5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 SO, 6/3 GO/AO
- Jordan Mills-2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO
- Eric Peterson-1 2/3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO
- Bobby Boyd CF-0-4, 3 SO
- Jamie Ritchie 1B-1-2, 2 BB
- Derek Fisher LF-0-2, 2 BB, SO
- Nick Tanielu 3B-1-4, 2B, SO
- Ryan Bottger RF-1-3, 2B, BB, SO
- Kristian Trompiz SS-2-4, HR, SO
