Eddie's Farm: April 9

Second day of the season for four teams in Eddie's Farm. Let's get to it:

Round Rock

Round Rock out-hit New Orleans again, 7-5, but were shutout, losing 2-0. Gustavo Chacin threw 3IP, 3H/1ER, 0K:1BB before leaving the game (for reasons as yet unknown). Polin Trinidad came in and threw 4IP, 2H/1ER, 2K:2BB and Daigle threw a perfect 8th. Taking a clue from how the Big Boys are doing it in Houston, the Express were 0x8 w/RISP. Jason Bourgeois had the only multi-hit game, and Edwin Maysonet drew the only walk.

The Express had some chances late. In the 8th inning, down 2-0, they had Yordany at second and Maysonet on 1st, and Bogusevic and Locke both grounded out. In the 9th, Chris Shelton lead off with a single, and then was doubled off first on Castro's flyout.

Corpus Christi

Corpus, however, was all over Tulsa in a 9-3 win in which the Hooks got 14 hits. Doug Arguello threw 5.1IP, 5H/1ER, 7K:0BB. Matt Nevarez gave up 2H/2ER, 1BB in his IP, but Danny Meszaros closed it out in the 9th. Koby Clemens was 3x5 with a 2-run homer, and Shuck, Steele, Gaston, and Sutil each had two hits. Shuck had two doubles and a stolen base.


The JetHawks took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the 9th, but Bakersfield scored two runs for a 3-2 win. Ross Seaton threw 5IP, 7H/0ER, 2K:0BB, and Leandro Cespedes and Kyle Godfrey held it down for Pat Urckfitz to close it down. Except a single, double, and walk-off single ended the game before Urckfitz recorded an out. All of the JetHawks' offense came on the long ball, with homers by Albert Cartwright and Ebert Rosario. Jay Austin, Freddy Parejo, and Mark Ori had the other three hits. Brandon Wikoff drew two walks (and a CS).


And the Lexington Legends got in the win column with a 7-2 win over Charleston. Juan Minaya got the start, throwing 3.1IP, 3H/1R (unearned), 3K:5BB (brutal), but Arcenio Leon picked up the win with 3.1IP of scoresless relief. J.D. Martinez went off, gonig 4x4 with a 2-run homer, Jiovanni Mier had a two-run single, and our boy Aaron Bray went 1x4 with a double and a walk in his first start of the season, at 1B.

I fully expect Martinez to stay in Lexington all of a month before he gets sent to wreak havoc at Lancaster.

If AA produces a winning team this year, I'll be very happy.
