Everybody loses. Everybody....

Straily Strong Before Falling Apart in 7-3 Loss

Dan Straily has been on a strong streak of improvement over his last several outings and looked to be in line for another before the fifth inning happened. He accomplished in the third what he couldn't in the fifth. Matt Dominguez allowed a slow dribbler up the third baseline turn into a single that allowed the runner on second to advance to third. The ball had no chance of being foul. L.J. Hoes slipped while fielding a pop-up. He caught it for the out but it gave the runner plenty of time to make it home. Damage done. The fifth, didn't go that way. It was worse. Much worse. Doubles all around.

  • Dan Straily-4 1/3 IP, 11 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 SO, 3/4 GO/AO, 91/68 P/S, 25 Game Score

Tandem Strong in Hooks Loss

Three runs isn't much to surrender but it was enough to drop this one. Chris Devenski accrued seven strikeouts in his five innings and lower his ERA down to 0.71. The issue lies in that his strikeout rate of 20.2% is a little uninspiring. It's not much different that his 21.3% in CC last year. The big difference is that he's improved his walk rate from 10.3% in CC last year to 6.9% this year.

  • Chris Devenski-5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 SO, 4/3 GO/AO, 75/56 P/S, 61 GS
  • Michael Feliz-4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 SO, 1 HR, 4/3 GO/AO, 58/43 P/S
  • Tony Kemp 2B-1-3, 2B, 2 BB, SO, SB
  • Teoscar Hernandez CF-1-4, SB
  • Colin Moran 3B-2-4
  • Jiovanni Mier SS-1-2, 2 BB, SO

Lancaster Hangs Four on Bedard

Well thats cool and all, but they didn't win. Erik Bedard is now in High-A and not doing that well. Wasn't long ago he was pitching with the Astros.

Yasiel Puig is also rehabbing with the Quakes and Evan Grills was able to sit him down via the strikeout. That's probably a better story to write home about.

  • Evan Grills-5 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO, 1 HR, 7/2 GO/AO, 28 GS
  • Tyler Brunnemann-2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR
  • Frederick Tiburcio-2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO
  • Brett Phillips CF-1-4, HR, BB
  • Derek Fisher LF-1-4, BB, SO, SB
  • A.J. Reed DH-2-3, 2B, HR, SO-15 HR's on the season now
  • Jack Mayfield SS-1-4, 2B, SO
  • James Ramsay CF-1-4, 2B
  • Marc Wik 2B-2-4, HR

Nottingham is a Beast

I feel like we talk about this a lot now but it's very real. I was a fan when he was drafted mostly because I liked the leverage in his swing. I didn't expect a guy who could hit for a high average, but that's exactly what he's done this season. Yes his .342 batting average is supported heavily but a high BABIP. But, he's doing it consistently. He's hitting the ball with authority and driving it. The issue is that there is no reason to rush him. He's young and has plenty of time to develop. However, he's showing dominance.

  • Brock Dykxhoorn-5 1/3 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 SO, 1 HR, 4/4 GO/AO, 57 GS
  • Eric Peterson-1 2/3 IP, 2 H,1  R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR
  • Ryan Thompson-1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • Mott Hyde SS-0-4, 3 SO
  • Jacob Nottingham C-2-4, 2 SO
  • Nick Tanielu 3B-2-4
  • Bobby Boyd CF-2-3
