Gagliano's Sunday Farm Report 2-2

Memphis lost a wild one, 14-11, thanks to walking 13. Sedlacek lasted a long time, but only two innings...2 ip, 3 h, 7 r, 6 bb, 1 k. The good news on the pitching front is that White went 1 ip, 0 h, 0 r, 0 bb, 2 k. He's now up to 5.1 ip, 3 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 7 k. Berger was 3 of 5, Nelson 2 of 3, 2 BB, HR, and Gall 2 of 5. I'd wondered why Duncan was not starting for a few games (as Gall was at 1B). Reports from the other threads are that Duncan is just sitting against lefties. Can't say I'm thrilled with that. The farm is where he should be learning to hit them. Nelson is now up to .439 OBP, .596 SLG. This gets more and more interesting. It would be very helpful if he turns out a keeper.

Springfield won 9-8. Blair went 5 ip, 5 h, 3 r, 2 bb, 2 k, but reportedly pitched somewhat better than the line. Nussbeck came in in the 8th, bases loaded, one out, and fanned two batters on 7 pitches. Cancel was 3 of 4, Hanson and Boyd 2 of 4, Herr 2 of 5. There are articles today at the News-Leader on Kinney and Herr. Can't say I learned anything new, though.

Palm Beach won 4-0. Lambert got the win, going 6.2 ip, 5 h, 0 r, 2 bb, 5 k. For the season, he's up to 6 starts, 5-0 record, 33.2 ip, 27h, 1 HR, 9 bb, 30 K, 1.87 ERA. That ERA is good for 4th in the league for guys with at least 30 ip. It would be great to see him keep this up and get a midseason call to AA. Randazzo and Cavazos finished the shutout, 2.1 ip, 1 h, 0 r, 0 bb, 1 k. And how often do two guys with Z's in their last name pitch back to back? Santor was 2 of 3, Parker 2 of 4, with a key bases loaded double in the first.

Quad Cities lost 4-1. Haberer went 4.2 ip, 7 h, 3 r, 3 bb, 3 k. Knoff and Medina kept it close, 3.1 ip, 2 h, 1 r, 0 er, 2 bb, 3 k. Hoffpauir was 2 of 4.

The 2-2 day keeps the farm teams a collective half game under .500.
