Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-5-13 

It was a great night for starting pitching in the Padre farm system. Top pitching prospect, Max Fried, had arguably the worst start of the 4 starting pitchers and he threw 4 one hit innings with 5 strikeouts! Despite the phenomenal pitching performances both the T-Pads and the Missions lost tight pitcher’s duels. The Storm won largely due to Cory Spangenberg’s 4 stolen bases and Kyle Gaedele’s 2 solo bombs while the TinCaps rode a 6 run 9th inning to victory.

Hitting Prospect of the Day: Cory Spangenberg/Kyle Gaedele

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Every Starting Pitcher

Tucson Padres 1, Salt Lake Bees 2

Jaff Deker-RF: 1-3, BB, K

Jonathan Galvez-2B: 0-3, BB, 2K, Run scored

Kyle Blanks-1B: 1-4, 2b, RBI, 3K

Travis Buck-LF: 1-4, 2b, K

Gregorio Petit-SS: 0-3

Rene Rivera-C: 1-2, BB, K

Sean O’Sullivan-SP: 5.0 IP, 2H, ER, 2BB, 5K

Fautino De Los Santos-RP: .1 IP, 2H, ER, K (L, 0-1)

Notes: In a rare PCL pitcher’s duel, the T-Pads found themselves on the wrong side of a 2-1 score against the Bees. The Tucson Padres’ offense resembled the San Diego Padres’ offense: both teams scored a quick run in the first but were mostly held in check throughout the rest of the game. After an impressive spring, Sean O’Sullivan continued to pitch well. He only allowed 2 hits and 1 run while striking out 5 through 5 innings.


San Antonio Missions 1, Tulsa Drillers 2

Reymond Fuentes-RF: 3-6, 2 2b, RBI

Everett Williams-LF: 0-2, 3BB

Tommy Medica-1B: 0-5, 2K
Jeudy Valdez- SS: 0-5, K

Eddy Rodriguez-C: 1-5, K

Chris Bisson-2B: 1-5, 2b, 2K, Run scored

Jose De Paula-SP: 5.0 IP, 5H, 0ER, 3K

Matt Stites-RP: 1.0 IP, 2K

Kevin Quackenbush-RP: 2.0 IP, H, BB, 3K

Notes: The Missions lose 2-1 in 13 innings. The pitching staff was dancing around runners in scoring position all night as the Drillers went a dismal 1-15 with RISP, but in the end a home run by Kiel Roling gave the Drillers the victory. If I told you before this game that Reymond Fuentes would have 60% of the Missions hits, you would probably think I was crazy, but that’s exactly what happened tonight: the rest of the Missions lineup was silenced. Stites and Quackenbush picked up right where they left off; last year they posted a 0.74 ERA and a 0.94 ERA respectively. With those two in the pen, Missions leads will in all likelihood be safe late in games this year.


Lake Elsinore Storm 6, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 2

Jace Peterson-SS: 1-5, RBI

Cory Spangenberg-2B: 3-4, 2b, RBI, BB, Run scored, 4 SB(4)

Austin Hedges-C: 1-5, K

Yeison Asencio-RF: 2-5, HR(1), RBI, Run scored

Kyle Gaedele-LF: 2-4, 2 HR(2), 2RBI, 2 Runs scored, SB(2)

Travis Jankowski-CF: 2-4, 2 Runs scored, SB (2)

Frank Garces-SP: 5.0 IP, 3H, 2ER, 9K (W, 1-0)

Matt Lollis-RP: 2.0 IP, BB, 2K

Johnny Barbato-RP: 1.0 IP, 2K

Notes: It was an all around solid victory for the Storm. They absolutely ran wild against the Quakes; Cory Spangenberg (2011 1st round draft pick) collected an astounding 4 stolen bases, and Storm stole 6 bases overall. Despite going 1-12 with RISP the Storm managed to collect 6 runs and scored in 6 different innings largely thanks to 2 solo shots by Kyle Gaedele. Travis Jankowski extended his hitting streak to 22 games. As for pitching, despite a hiccup in the 4th inning, Frank Garces was outstanding as he struck out 9 batters over the course of 5 innings. Another interesting fact to note: the Storm have faced Dodgers pitchers Chad Billingsley and Ted Lilly to start the season, neither of those two fared well. Tonight, Lilly gave up 9 hits and 5 runs in 6 innings and yesterday the Storm scored all 4 of their runs off Billingsley throughout 4 innings.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 6, Great Lakes Loons 2

Mallex Smith-CF: 1-5, 2K, Run scored

Jeremy Baltz-DH: 2-4, RBI, K, Run scored

Alberth Martinez-LF: 2-4, 3b, 2RBI, K, Run scored

Rodney Daal-C: 2-4

Maxx Tissenbaum-2B: 1-4, K, Run scored

Max Fried-SP: 4.0 IP, H, ER, 4BB, 5K

Rueben Mejia-RP: 3.0 IP, H, R, 0ER, BB, 2K

Notes: The TinCaps won in exciting fashion tonight. After being on the wrong side of a 2-0 score for most of the game,  they erupted in the 9th and put a 6 spot on the board. The TinCaps batted around and the inning was ultimately highlighted by a 2 run triple by Alberth Martinez. Top prospect Max Fried (2012 1st round draft pick) followed up Joe Ross’ dominating start with 4 1-hit innings of his own. He worked around 4 walks and struck out 5. The TinCaps could have quite the lethal rotation this year.
