3.5 Games Back

The Cardinals roll to another win against the Brewers.  Pineiro was super, allowing 2 solo HRs in 7 innings.  Ricky had another hit and 2 more Ks.  MV3 went 8-14 with 4 RBIs, while each homered.  The Cardinals are now 3.5 games out. 

So the Cardinals did not sign Kyle Russell.  I wonder how Lunhow feels that his pick, Russell, did not get signed by his rumored rival, Jocketty.  Russell’s teammate, Brad Suttle, was also a fourth round pick and got 1.3 million from the Yankees. Suttle, too, is represented by the Hendricks. His bonus is a record for a fourth round pick. Russell is considered to have a higher upside but Suttle is supposed to be a safer bet to hit at the higher levels. So, I would guess that Russell was asking for this much or more and the Cardinals were not willing to set the $$ record for a fourth round pick. Do you want to give a record bonus to a guy who has tremendous power, but strikes out quite a bit and has struggled with wood bats?

Memphis 0 Oklahoma (Rangers) 4

It seems when Ankiel went to St. Louis, Memphis’ offense went with him.  Nick Stavinoha and Tagg Bozied both doubled accounting for the only extra base hits.  Mike Smith gave up 4 runs in 6 innings.  Newly acquired Brian Barden had a hit. 

Springfield 4 San Antonio (Padres) 6

Juan Richardson collected 3 hits.  Colby Rasmus went 2-4.  Brian Anderson and Rico Washington each collected 2 hits, also.  Mitch Boggs gave up 5 runs on 11 hits in 5 innings.  Jason Motte gave up a solo HR. 

Palm Beach 7 Vero Beach (Rays) 1 Game 1

Adam Ottavino got the win but was far from impressive.  He gave up 1 run in 6 innings but walked 6 and had just 2 Ks.  Brandon Yarbrough had 3 hits with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.  Nathan Southard had 2 hits. 

Palm Beach 5 Vero Beach (Rays) 4 Game 2

Palm Beach had only 2 hits but were helped by 4 errors.  Dan Nelson and Mark Shorey had the only 2 hits.  Luke Gregerson picked up save number 22.

Quad Cities had the night off.

Batavia had the night off.

Johnson City 7 Greeneville (Astros) 3

Jon Edwards had a big night with 3 hits and 4 RBIs including a 3-run HR.  Pete Kozma had 2 hits and 2 runs scored as did Mike Folli. 

GCL Cardinals 1 GCL Marlins 4

The big news here is that Mark McCormick pitched a perfect inning and had 1 K.  Ronald Russell pitched a shutout inning. Guillermo Toribio was 3-4.
