Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-4-14 

The Chihuahuas, Missions, and Storm were all victorious today while the TinCaps were on the wrong end of a blowout. The Storm won a pitcher’s duel while the Missions and Chihuahuas won of the strength of their offenses.


Hitting Prospect of the Day: Rymer Liriano

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Bryan Rodriguez


El Paso Chihuahuas 7, Sacramento River Cats 4

Rico Noel – CF: 1-4, RBI, K

Reymond Fuentes – LF: 1-3, 2RBI, BB, Run scored

Tommy Medica – 1B: 1-4, RBI, BB, Run scored

Kyle Blanks – DH: 2-4, HR(9), 3RBI, Run scored

Jeff Francoeur – RF: 1-4

Cody Decker – C: 2-4, Run scored

Tim Sexton – SP: 5.0 IP, 4H, 3ER, 1BB, 2K, HR Allowed

Kevin Quackenbush – RP: 1.0 IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K (S, 6)

Notes: Kyle Blanks continues to tear it up in El Paso as he hit his 9th home run and drove in his 10th run of the year. Seeing as the Padres are inept offensively, Blanks could find himself being called up in short time. Kevin Quackenbush collected his 6th save and lowered his ERA to 1.26 over 13 appearances and 14.1 innings pitched with the Chihuahuas.


San Antonio Missions 6, Corpus Christi Hooks 4

Casey McElroy – 2B: 2-5, HR(1), RBI, Run scored

Brian Bixler – SS: 0-5, K

Rymer Liriano – CF: 3-5, 2 HR(5), 2RBI, K, 2 Runs scored

Jason Hagerty – C: 1-4, K, Run scored

Adam Buschini – 3B: 2-4, 2B, K, 2 Runs scored

Yeison Asencio – RF: 2-4

Devin Jones – SP: 5.0 IP, 4H, 4R, 2ER, 1BB, 0K (W, 4-1)

Johnny Barbato – RP: 1.0 IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 2K

Notes: Rymer Liriano has found his home run swing as he has smacked 4 home runs over his last 8 games. His career high in homeruns was set in 2011 with 12, but he has a good chance to surpass that this year. Johnny Barbato now has 5 straight scoreless appearances and a 2.77 ERA over his last 10 appearances.


Lake Elsinore Storm 3, Inland Empire 66ers 1

Alberth Martinez – CF: 3-4, BB

Luis Tejada – LF: 0-5, 2K

Carlos Quentin – DH: 1-3, BB

Hunter Renfroe – RF: 0-3, BB, K

Gabriel Quintana – 3B: 1-2, 2B, K

Duanel Jones – 1B: 1-2, 2BB, Run scored

Bryan Rodriguez – SP: 5.1 IP, 7H, 1ER, 2BB, 1K

Notes: Despite going 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position, the Storm managed to pull off a 3-1 victory against the 66ers. Carlos Quentin, playing as the DH, got his first hit of the 2014 season tonight. Alberth Martinez broke a 2-game hitless streak and reached base 4 times to bring his average up to .307.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 2, South Bend Silver Hawks 16

Ronnie Richardson – RF: 0-2, BB, K, Run scored

Mallex Smith – CF: 2-3, RBI, Run scored

Fernando Perez – 3B: 0-4, K

Dustin Peterson – DH: 0-3, RBI, BB, K

Jake Bauers – 1B: 0-3, BB, K

Ryan Miller – C: 1-4, 2B

Bryan Verbitsky – SP: 2.0 IP, 8H, 7R, 6ER, 1BB, 0K, HR Allowed

Notes: Verbitsky endured his worst start of the year as he allowed 7 runs over 2 innings and didn’t strike out a single batter. The offense was only slightly better as they only managed 3 hits all game, while the D committed 3 errors. All in all, not the best game for the TinCaps.
