Minor League Recap May 24th

Only 2 games today. Both teams jumped out early and relied on their pen to get them the rest of the way.

AAA Tucson

Inman pitched well the pen (Perdomo) gave it back up. In the 11th Scribner got in trouble, and eventually gave up a walk off bloop single over a drawn in infield. Oddly enough the winning run was scored by Lance Zawadzki. T-Pads fall 5-6 in 11

Will Inman rebounded nicely after being lit up in his last start against the Cubs. Outside of 2 bad starts Inman has pitched incredibly affectively for a severe hitters league. It was the 3rd time in his 10 starts that Inman posted a 1 WHIP or lower. The one issue Inman has had is pitch counts. In 5 effective innings, Inman still managed to throw 92 pitches (58 strikes). He is a strikeout pitcher but needs to get more economical to pitch deeper in games.

Cedric Hunter collected his 2nd multi hit in the last 3 games. In his last 3 games Hunter has gone 5-14, 3 RS, 2B, 3B, 7 RBI, 2 BB, K. In 39 G (155 AB) Hunter has 17 walks to only 13 K. It would be nice to see Hunter put up more power as he only has 11 extra base hits (1 HR) in a very hitter friendly league.

No game in AA San Antonio

No game in High A Lake Elsinore

Low A Fort Wayne

Sampson gets the start and pitches into the 7th for the first time all game. This should mean a win when the offense let by Liriano score 4 runs. Well not when Carvajal, Ibarra, and Mull give up 7 ER in the 8th inning. Tin Caps fall 4-8

Keyvius Sampson left without giving up a run. Franklin came in and allowed the inherited runner to score, but it was still a great start for Sampson. Sampson went 6.1 iP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K. After being nearly unhittable, literally no one could make contact, Sampson has settled down. In his last 3 starts (16.1 IP) Sampson only has 12 K. While that isn't bad, considering his first 2 starts he went 11 IP, 19 K, it is a slight let down. Still an incredibly dominating 20 year old pitcher in A Ball

Rymer Liriano had back to back great days. Liriano went 3-4, RS, 3B, BB, 2 SB (14). Liriano has stolen 6 bases in the last 3 games and is hitting .500/.562/.930 in that frame. His 14-3 SB ratio is also an improvement. He has a chance to break his career high of 31 he set last year.
