Tucson 5 @ Nashville 1
It’s been tough for Corey Myers to even crack the lineup
this season in Tucson,
but when he got the start Tuesday night behind the plate he certainly made the
most of it. Myers went 3 for 4 with the
game winning double in the 8th inning, and drove in three runs on
the day. It was Myers first appearance
in a week, and though Myers is hitting a robust .333 the double was his first
extra base tally of the season.
Lefty Mark Freed made his second start of the season, and of the last three years Tuesday night and is
making a case to remain in the rotation.
Tuesday Freed pitched five innings giving up just one run on four
hits. He walked three and struck out
six. In two starts this season Freed has
pitched 10 innings and carries a 0.90 ERA.
In 10 relief appearances he’s pitched 19.1 innings and his ERA is 6.05.
Three relievers combined for four innings of scoreless
baseball, with Kevin Tolar earning the win to improve to 3-0. While is wasn’t a
save situation Jason Bulger did pitch a hitless 9th for Tucson, walking one and
striking out one. Since the May 6th
game where Bulger allowed three earned runs in one-third of an inning he’s made
two scoreless appearances, faced seven batters, walked one, and struck out
Matt Kata made his first appearance in Tucson since being sent down and went 1 for 5
with a double, and RBI, and a run scored.
He started at second base and lead off for the Sidewinders.
Tennessee 3 @ West Tennessee 6
Things are going from bad to worse for left handed starter
Matt Chico. The highly touted lefty had
given up three home runs in six starts coming into Tuesday night’s game against
West Tennessee, he allowed three in five
innings Tuesday. Chico fell to 1-6 on the season,
he allowed twelve hits and six earned runs, striking out two. He did not walk a batter.
Dan Uggla started the game at third base, and moved to
second in the sixth inning. He was 2 for
4 including an RBI double raising his season average to .345, not bad for a ‘super
In the 7th inning Jon Zeringue’s
season long slump was officially announced as dead. That was when Zeringue, who collected two
hits for his third straight game, crushed a home run to deep right center
field. He also doubled in the game and
is hitting .371 in May.
Inland Empire 13 @ Lancaster
It took 12 innings and eight pitchers before the Lancaster
JetHawks finally lost Tuesday. JetHawks
starter Jon Castellanos was staked to a four run lead after the first inning
but couldn’t hold it, lasting only 4.2 innings before 12 hits and seven earned
runs knocked him out of the game. Carlton Wells took the loss after giving up two runs on four hits in just one-third of
JetHawks pitchers gave up eight walks and three home runs in
Chris Carter was locked in, going 3 for 4 with two walks, two
home runs and a career high six RBI.
Carter has five home runs and 26 RBI on the year, with three home runs
and eight RBI in his last three games.
Miguel Montero was 2 for 5 on the evening, extending his
hitting streak to six games. Montero is
hitting .354 with a home run, four runs scored, and six RBI during the streak.
Jay Garthwaite started at third base for the third time in
the last four games and picked up two doubles and three RBI in six at bats.
Kane County 1 @ South
Ross Ohlendorf did not need 14 runs to win Tuesday night,
but after suffering losses where he had given up three and one earlier in the
season Ohlendorf seems to be taking matters into his own hands. He gave up just five hits and one run while
walking two and striking out nine. In
his last two starts Ohlendorf has given up one run in thirteen innings while
striking out 19. Opponents are hitting
just .152 off him in his last two outings.
Every Silverhawk in the lineup scored at least one run, and
only catcher Orlando Mercado Jr. failed to get a hit. Six Silverhawks had multiple hit games
including left fielder Travis Gulick and right
fielder Carlos Gonzales, who both tallied three base knocks on the day.
Gulick had his best day of the
season, going 3 for 5 with a double, triple, and two RBI.
After his 3 for 5, two RBI, two run performance Carlos Gonzales is hitting .368 in May after scratching out just a .218 average in
Center Fielder Jereme Milons got his sixth and seven doubles
of the season, and scored his nineteenth and twentieth runs, while shortstop
Alberto Gonzalez went 1 for 5, extending his hitting streak to seven games.
