Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-9-13 

Burch Smith was strong in the T-Pads close victory over the Zephyrs. For the second night in a row, the Missions blew out the Travelers. Not to be outdone, the Storm and the Emeralds both crushed their opponents in their impressive victories. The only team that lost tonight was the TinCaps, and they only lost by 1 run.

Josh Geer-SP: 7.0 IP, 6H, ER, BB, 4K (W, 7-4)

Spangenberg is now hitting .385 over his last 10 games; he’s raised his average to .280 over 200 AB’s with the Missions. Spangenberg endured struggles to begin his Double-A career, but he appears to finally have settled in. Tommy Medica had an outstanding night with the bat.

James Needy-SP: 5.0 IP, 6H, 2ER, 2BB, 3K (W, 8-4)

Notes: Jace Peterson continued his strong year with 2 hits and 3 RBI in tonight’s game. Peterson is hitting .295 and now has 61 RBI over 393 AB’s. Peterson gets it done on the base paths too; he has 36 stolen bases on the year. It was a typical start for Needy tonight, he allowed a lot of base runners, but he limited the damage and only allowed 2 runs over 5 innings.

Joe Ross-SP: 2.1 IP, 5H, 6ER, 4BB, 0K (L, 4-7)

Notes: Joe Ross suffered arguably his worst start of the year tonight. Not only did he allow 6 runs on 5 hits over less than 3 innings, but he walked 4 and didn’t strike out a single batter. Ross has had a very pedestrian year; his ERA stands at 3.87 over 20 starts and he only has 70 strikeouts over 104.1 innings pitched.

Notes: Donavan Tate made his first start all season and went 1-4 with a double, a walk, and a strikeout. Tate is coming off a disappointing year that saw him his .226 over 371 AB’s. Hunter Renfroe has been driving in runs at an excellent pace for the Emeralds; he has 12 RBI over his last 10 games, and he has 18 RBI over 104 AB’s with Eugene.
