Grizzlies Give Up Hit Parade in 11-5 Loss

The pitching staff had a rough night if your name wasn't Ricard Rodriguez or Mitch Lambson. They allowed sixteen hits and three of those were home runs. Las Vegas just crushed the ball. But, there's also a silver lining to everything. This may not have been one to the team since they still lost, but we get to enjoy these two videos.

These don't happen without the pitchers giving up hard hit balls. I'd say Kemp is doing fairly well in CF. Both of those routes were pretty efficient. However, we don't get to the see the first several steps and how good the jump on the ball was. You have to love the look on Brandon Allen's face as he walks off the field in the second video.

Musgrove Proves to be Human in 7-6 Win

I was questioning it. I mean he had off-season surgery on the shoulder complex (I believe the SC joint). Was it replaced with a robotic arm? With how aggressively he's been promoted, a bad game was sure to happen eventually. It really doesn't mean anything at this point. We'll all be patiently waiting to see how he bounces back.

  • Joe Musgrove-5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 2 HR, 5/5 GO/AO, 84/57 P/S, 36 GS

Mengden Has Best Day in Cal League in 6-4 Loss

That depends on perspective. As a fan, you like Daniel Mengden's day since he allowed no runs. As a prospector, maybe not as much as he walked four batters. He's done pretty well in that category on same days and not so much on others. He's had multiple high-walk total games and several of low-walk variety. The BB/SO ratio is a big area of focus in Lancaster and something he'll have to continue to work on.

  • Daniel Mengden-5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 6 SO, 4/3 GO/AO, 65 GS
  • Austin Chrismon-2 2/3 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR
  • Tyler Brunnemann-2/3 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 SO
  • Reymin Guduan-2/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • James Ramsay CF-3-4, 2B, BB, CS
  • Derek Fisher LF-1-3, SB
  • J.D. Davis 3B-2-4, HR, SB
  • Ronnie Mitchell RF-0-2, 2 BB, SO
  • Ruben Castro C-2-4, 2B-That's a season debut in June. Drafted out of the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy last year. Only played in the GCL. Probably a temporary promotion.

QC Joins Hit Parade in 8-3 Win

Several players had multi-hit games as they amassed thirteen hits to help plate their eight runs. Five of those runs came in one inning. This was a hit parade that carried a little more excitement as it contained four extra-base hits, including Ryan Bottger's fourth home run this season.

  • Christian Powell-4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO, 4/5 GO/AO, 48 GS
  • Eric Peterson-3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO, 4/1 GO/AO
  • Ryan Thompson-2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 SO, 3/1 GO/AO
  • Jason Martin LF-3-4, BB, SO, SB
  • Ryan Bottger 1B-2-5, 2B, HR, 2 SO
  • Sean McMullen RF-0-5, 4 SO
  • Ramon Laureano CF-3-4, BB, SO, SB
  • Alex Hernandez 2B-2-5, 2B, SO
  • Thomas Lindauer SS-1-3, 2B, SO

Tri-City Wins Season Opener 3-2

The cool part about short-season league opening is a lot professional debuts and organizational debuts. Six different players made their affiliated-baseball professional debut and one made his organizational debut. I used the term affiliated-baseball for one specific player. Rogelio Armenteros. He is a Cuba defector that was signed last September (I had no idea). He's a pitcher with a four pitch mix and played professionally in Cuba. His velocity is in the low-90's and uses a curve, slider, and a changeup. The other pro debut's were draft picks. Yeyfry Del Rosario made his organizational debut and has been a pitcher in the Blue Jays organization. He has made it as high as full-season A-ball.

  • Rogelio Armenteros-4 2/3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 SO, 3/2 GO/AO, 68/42 P/S, 53 GS-Not a bad debut
  • Elieser Hernandez-2 2/3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 SO, 2/0 GO/AO, 22/22 P/S
  • Yeyfry Del Rosario-1 2/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO, 3/0 GO/AO, 10/10 P/S
  • Juan Santos-1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • NOTE: I don't think the P/S are accurate for the relievers. Similar numbers for both teams and only enough balls to account for the walks. Strike counts were equivalent to number of strikes for each strikeout plus one pitch for each other out.
  • Johnny Sewald CF-1-5
  • Brooks Marlow 2B-0-3, 2 BB-Good name...I might be biased
  • Cesar Carrasco 3B-1-4, 2B, SO
  • Alexander Melendez LF-2-4, SO
