Jack Hannahan, 3B-LCC: 0-3, K.
Get him back to the majors, quick! Hannahan isn't going to have any confidence left if he keeps having to face minor league pitching. He's a combined 0-7 with 3 K in 2 games in the minors, one with AAA Columbus and then last night with low-A Lake County. In the grand scheme of things, what does that mean? Well, pretty much nothing. It's just two games, after all. Still, I'm intrigued to see how Manny Acta uses Hannahan and Chisenhall once Super Jack is added back to the active roster sometime in the near future.
T.J. McFarland, SP-COL: L (1-1), 4 1/3 IP, 10 ER, 8 H, 2 K, 4 BB. Well, McFarland had to have a bad start sooner or later. This makes his overall AAA numbers look pretty ugly, but two of his three starts have been very good. This one was a clunker, as he gave up a pair of HR, and was clearly lacking in his command and control as he also issued 4 BB. McFarland is always going to be a guy who pitches to contact, and he's not going to miss a ton of bats in the show. If he leaves the ball up in the zone, he's going to have days like this.
Matt Langwell, RP-COL: 2 2/3 IP, 2 H, 3 K. That's 6 2/3 scoreless in a row for Langwell, who's struck out 6 in that timeframe as well. He lowered his Columbus ERA to an even 2.00 in 18 innings of work on the season.
Cody Allen, RP-COL: IP, K. Another inning, another strikeout for Allen who now has 24 in 19 2/3 AAA innings, and 42 in 31 1/3 innings overall this season.
Jason Donald, 3B-COL: 2-4, 2 RBI, K. Donald is hitting a respectable .315/.413/.461 in AAA after going for a miserable line of .178/.188/.178 in 45 MLB at-bats this season. He's still got the potential to be a useful utility infielder at the big league level.
Cord Phelps, 2B-COL: 1-4, 2B, R. Phelps has a modest 8-game hitting streak going, during which he's gone 11-27 with a HR and 5 2B. His season line continues to crawl upwards, and he's now at .268/.342/.439 in 63 games for the Clippers.
Will Roberts, SP-CAR: L (3-3), 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 2 K, BB. Roberts was the hard-luck loser in game one of the doubleheader last night, as he gave up a run in the bottom of the 7th for a walk-off loss. He's gone 12 1/3 innings in his last 2 starts, allowing 4 ER while striking out 7 and walking just 1. He's a command-and-control guy who doesn't have a crazy-high ceiling, but is a smart pitcher and can be effective as long as he's locating the ball well.
Michael Goodnight, SP-CAR: L (2-7), 5 IP, 4 R (2 ER), 4 K. In his last 4 starts, Goodnight has done a nice job missing bats while limiting free passes. He's struck out 23 and walked just 4 in 24 innings of work.
Tony Wolters, SS-CAR: 2-6, 2B, 3 K. The Mudcats only managed 2 runs in 14 innings of baseball yesterday, and Wolters was one of the few 'Cats with hits in both games of the double-dip.
Ronny Rodriguez, 2B-CAR: 1-5, 2B, RBI, K. Rodriguez is shoring up his pitch selection, and has struck out just 4 times in his last 30 AB for the Mudcats. That's a big improvement on where he was at earlier this season.
Jesus Aguilar, 1B-CAR: 2-5, RBI, BB, K. Aguilar snapped out of a 1-21 slump with a pair of hits yesterday, but has seen his season numbers drop to a still-solid .288/.374/.449.
Gio Urshela, 3B-CAR: 2-4, 2B, R. Dealing with some injuries this year, Urshela is hitting just .324/.286/.299 on the season. He's recorded just 8 XBH in 41 games (1 HR and 7 2B). He's a slick fielding 3B, but he's going to have to do more with the bat if he wants to make it to the next level.
Shawn Morimando, SP-LCC: W (2-1), 5 IP, ER, 6 H, 4 K. It's always good to see a zero in the walk column for your starting pitcher. Morimando has started 8 games for the Captains, going 2-1 with a 3.89 ERA, striking out 22 and walking 13 in 37 IP.
Francisco Lindor, SS-LCC: 0-2, 2 BB, R, K. In his last 5 games, Lindor has gone 7-18 with 6 walks. What slump?
Luigi Rodriguez, CF-LCC: 1-2, 2 BB, R. Rodriguez now has an eight game hitting streak, during which he's gone 12-33 with 4 2B and 7 runs scored.
Bryson Myles, RF-LCC: 2-4, HR (2), 2B, 3 RBI, R, K. Since coming off the DL on June 6, Myles has gone 3-14 with 4 BB and 4 RBI. In 36 games this season, he's now hitting .262/.336/.410 with 2 HR and 11 SB.
Jerrud Sabourin, 1B-LCC: 3-4, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R. The former Indiana University walk-on and undrafted free agent is up to a solid .280/.354/.351 on the season. If you're not cheering for this kid, there's something seriously wrong with you.
