Fresno Makes Late Push: Fall 12-10

Eury De La Rosa got rocked again in his second start for the organization. It put Fresno in a hole early and it took them nearly all game to climb out. But, late in the bottom of the ninth they were able to score five runs, albeit falling two runs short. Derek Fisher helped with his fourth home run for Fresno which was a three run shot in the ninth.

CC Falls 5-2 in 11th to Frisco

Trent Thornton has done well as a professional. As a fifth rounder, he has progressed through the system rather quickly. He now has 38 innings at AA after just being drafted in 2015. He has a 2.37 ERA in AA with a minuscule 4% walk rate and a 21% strikeout rate. The strikeout rate could be prettier but it was a healthier 24.3% in Lancaster.

This game he had a game score of 70. His lone run came on a solo home run.

J. D. Davis hit his 19th home run. His power is real. So are the questions with contact.

Lancaster Falls 6-2

Osvaldo Duarte continues to uphold the Lancaster reputation by hitting better in the windy confines of the Cal League. He has six home runs which is twice what he did in Quad Cities in less than half the plate appearances.

Pitching Struggles in 12-2 River Bandits Loss

Hector Perez's control issues reared it's ugly head again. He walked four in under four innings of work. Hard to be successful like that. But, it takes a while for a lot of these international prospects to develop. He has the stuff, so be patient to see what he could turn into.

TC Wins 4-3

Ryan Hartman had a Game Score of 61 which is tough to do when you only toss four innings. But, they were extremely efficient innings. He hasn't really been allowed to pitch very deep in any game, likely due to his college work load. It took him only 34 pitches to go through those four innings. He average 8.5 pitches per innings. That's ridiculous efficiency. Now, it also took good defense. So, props to the defense for fielding the six groundouts and four flyouts.
