For most of the Dutchies in the minors it was a bad day. Many of them didn’t see the ball well.
The Tacoma Rainiers needed eleven innings to beat the Albuquerque Isotopes 3-1. Roger Bernadina went 0 for 2 but did draw two walks.
Randolph Oduber got a pinch hit appearance for the Harrisburg Senators in which he grounded out to first base. The Sens lost to the Binghamton Mets (who are in the midst of a selling process) 9-3.
In the game that his team, the Frisco RoughRIders won 2-0, Christopher Garia went 0 for 5. He had a busy day in center field when many balls were hit into his direction. He made a couple of fly outs but he couldn’t prevent D’Arby Myers to triple into his direction.
Spencer Kieboom drew two walks in the Potomac Nationals’ 5-4 win over Lynchburg, but he also grounded out twice. IN the fourth inning after drawing a walk, he tried to reach third base on a single to right field but HillCats right fielder Bradley Zimmer threw a laser beam to third where Spencer was tagged out.
In an high scoring game, the San Jose Giants beat the Bakersfield Blaze 10-5. Back from the 7-day DL, John Polonius went 1 for 4 with a strikeout, but that one hit was a solo blast towards center field. John hit into a double play but also turned two 6-4-3 double plays himself.
The Daytona Tortugas played a double header vs the Charlotte StoneCrabs. Carlton Daal played both games. In game one he hit one single out of three at bats and drove in a run with a 4-3 ground out in the fourth inning. Cartlon also stole his third base of the season and was the center piece of a 6-4-3 double play. The Tortugas won this game 4-0. In game two (a 2-1 win for Daytona), Daal went 0 for 1 and went out on a sacrifice bunt. He also was part of two double plays.
It looks like that Cartlon has been working on his fielding skills. In seven games he did not commit an error yet, while he had a Midwest League leading 39 last year.
