Sorry about the lack of a minor league report yesterday. As part of a Mother's Day gift, I flew down to Denver to see my family. I got to see this yesterday on nieces day at the zoo ...
My dad named him Bartolo. My dad can be quite mean. Now you know where I get it from.
On a programming note, East coast native Todd Dybas will be with the team in New York. He will handle the daily stuff with the team. I will still post the minor league stuff.
Let's get to it ...
The Rainiers difficult road trip continued . Down 5-3 in the ninth, they had bases loaded with no outs and didn't get a single run across as Eric Thames, Alex Liddi and Carlos Peguero all struck out to end the game. James Paxton struck out 10 batters, but lasted just 5 2/3 innings.
Down in Jackson, the Generals gave up four runs in the ninth - all on Tyler Burgoon - to lose. Chance Ruffin pitched into the seventh inning and threw 112 pitches as his conversion from starter to reliever continues.
Class A High Desert shut out San Jose, using four pitchers.
Lefty Tyler Pike had another solid start for Clinton as the LumberKings shut out Kane County.
