Kyle Tucker goes off for Greeneville.

Fresno Piles it on In

I'm almost tired about writing about how Tyler White and his ability to just hit the ball. It was discussed last night in the TCB listserv about he does hit extremely well. However, he doesn't hit for that much pop, at least for a corner infielder. But, a man who gets on-base at the rate has been is a man with value. I don't know exactly how well he'll get on-base, but anywhere near what he's done is exceptional.

CC Falls 6-2

Not much positive in this game. Leo Heras had a double. Aaron West pitched well as well as Travis Ballew?

Fisher, McDonald Launch HR's in 5-2 Win

Both of them now have 23 each for the season. It was Fisher's 15th in Lancaster. McDonald is now hitting .295 and may be due a little of a late season challenge in AA. A 27% strikeout rate isn't good but isn't awful like it used to be as the strikeout rate has gone up over the last few years. Kris Bryant had some similar strikeout rates in the minors. And no, I am not comparing the two. Very different in quality. But that 11% walk-rate helps.

Quad Cities Shutout 3-0

You know what sucks about recent draftees? Small sample size. You know what sucks about reliever in the tandem system? Small sample size. Riley Ferrell is combination of both of those. Sixteen innings. Sixteen strikeouts. 2.10 GO/AO ratio. Looks awesome right. Oh wait, eleven walks. Four in one outing. Take those out and he looks a lot better.

McCall Draws Four Walks in 7-5 Loss

Dexture McCall has hit pretty well this season but the strikeout and walk rates haven't been great. When you add four walks to your total, that helps a bit.

Tucker Crushes the Ball in 10-6 Loss

Kyle Tucker picked up his first home run in Greeneville and picked up two more doubles. Nice to see him hit with authority.
