Reed Perfect in GM 1 6-5 Loss

A.J. Reed is taking his demotion to heart and putting in work. He reached base in all four plate appearances which included a home run and a walk. As Chris has been discussing lately, very few prospects succeed in their first taste in the majors. Seeing their holes exploited motivates them to fix said holes. Lets hope thats the case.

Kemmer Leads Grizzlies in GM 2 2-1 Win

Jon Kemmer was pretty much the entire offense. Sure, Tony Kemp picked up two hits, but they didn't lead to any runs. It all came from the bat of Jon Kemmer who hit his ninth home run with Chan Jong Moon already on base.

Grills Almost Goes Distance in 3-2 Loss

Evan Grills has been a slow progressing prospect and a 24-year old with a 4.38 ERA in a pitcher's league like the Texas League isn't setting the prospect world on fire. That said, he transitioned from Canadian competition and slowly made his way up. His strikeout rate ain't pretty, but just 13 walks in 74 innings in Double-A is a stat to brag about.

Lancaster Lead By Ferguson in Come-Back Win 4-3

Another perfect night from the plate in the system. Drew Ferguson was 4-4 in this contest and did it all. He hit a home run and stole two bases. Of the remaining three hits to his name, two were doubles. This game wasn't in Lancaster either.  As a team, the JetHawks had seven hits, but they also had four walks.

Pitching wise, Scott Weathersby had six strikeouts in three innings. Rogelio Armenteros matched that total but did so in four innings.

QC's Bats Come Together in 8-7 Win

14 hits and 4 walks. 11 of the hits and 3 of the walks came from the first four in the order, and Stephen Wrenn wasn't in that group. Dexture McCall was the big show in this one as he launched two home runs to give him seven on the season. Myles Straw had a pair of doubles which is a great sign. You want to see a guy with his speed leg out some doubles to provide something more than a bunch of singles.

Nicely Stands Out in 2-1 Win

It's no secret that Austin Nicely's pro career hasn't been a cake walk. He has faced his fair share of struggles on the mound with a combination of being hittable, wild, and lacking strikeouts. Again, he was hittable but he fought through it to limit the runs. Gotta give him props for 8-0 GO/AO ratio.
