Eddie's Farm: June 25

Round Rock

Boom! Albuquerque takes a 2-1 lead, and the Express respond with a 4-run 4th. Express go on to win convincingly 9-3. Wesley Wright is, rightly, back into his role as a starter and allowed 5H/2ER, 3K:0BB over 54 pitches (2.2IP). Brad Thompson allowed 3H/1R (0ER) in 1.2IP, while Majewski (1.2IP), Corcoran (2IP), and Daigle (1IP) held the Isotopes to 2H/0ER. Drwe Locke was 4x5 with two doubles, Brian Bogusevic was 3x4 with a homer, and Kevin Cash was 3x4 with 2RBI and a walk. Tommy Everidge was 2x4. Wonder where Chris Shelton is? Facing a "long stint" on the DL. Luis Maza was also 2x5.

Man of the Match: Drew Locke.


Hm. The Hooks got three hits, and it's hard to win with three hits. So they lost 4-0 to Frisco. Jordan Lyles gave up all four runs - all earned - allowing 10 hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts over 6IP. Erik Stiller, Nelson Payano, and Evan Englebrook threw three no-hit innings. German Duran, Jimmy Van Ostrand, and Jhon Florentino got your hits, with Shuck and Clemens drawing walks.

Man of the Match: The bullpen


Stockton beat up on Lancaster for a 9-4 win. David Duncan threw 2.2IP, 6H/5ER, 2K:2BB, while Edwin Walker allowed a hit and a walk in 3.1IP. Kyle Godfrey (2IP) and Brian Wabick (1IP) combined to allow 5H/4R (3ER), 2K:2BB, 1HR. Mark Ori was 2x4 with two doubles and two RBI (and a missed catch for an E3). Freddy Parejo was 2x2 with a walk and RBI.

Man of the Match: Edwin Walker


Rome got six in the top of the first, and that was all they needed - despite being outhit 10-3 by the Legends, and committing four errors. Rome wins 6-3. All six were on Juan Minaya, who allowed 1H/3BB in 0.2IP. He got some help from Zach Grimmett, who allowed 4H/1BB in the next 2.2IP. Jose Trinidad threw 3.2 perfect IP, striking out three, and Wander Alvino allowed one hit in 2IP. Miguel Arrendell (who's hitting .400 - 14x35 - in his last ten games) was 2x5 with an RBI, and Jonathan Meyer had your other 2-hit game. Kody Hinze was 1x2 with two walks. Jose Altuve was 1x5 with an RBI and two runs scored.

Man of the Match: Miguel Arrendell.


Jeebus. Tri-City scores a season-high seven runs and still loses 9-7. Murillo Gouvea allowed 6H/3ER, 3K:1BB in 5IP while the bullpen of Brandt Walker (1IP), Jeiler Castillo (1IP), Joan Belliard (0.2IP), Adam Champion (1.1IP), and Andrew "Jimmy" Robinson - can we get a verdict on his actual name? - (1IP) allowed 11H/6ER, 7K:2BB. Congratulations, though, to Adam Bailey and Ben Heath who hit their first professional homers. Nick Stanley was 3x4 (RBI), and Bailey ended up 3x4 (2B, HR, 3RBI).

Man of the Match: Adam Bailey.


Nice job of rallying by the Gastros, who were behind three times to Johnson City and still won 7-6. Ricardo Batista threw 4IP, 2H/2R (1ER), 2K:2BB; Ryan Cole allowed 4H/2ER in 2.2IP, and Brian Streilein got the blown save and the win with 2H/2R (2ER) in 1.1IP. Phil Rorabaugh got his first save of the season with a scoreless 9th. Marcus Nidiffer was 2x4 with two doubles (and is hitting .500 this week). Bubby Williams hit a two-run homer.

Man of the Match: Despite the error, it goes to Nidiffer.

GCL Astros

Mark Jones was undone by errors (six errors total in this game: three by Chan-Jong Moon, Vargas, Ditthardt, and Pena), getting charged with three unearned runs, but striking out six in 5IP. Dayan Diaz allowed 4H/2ER in 0.2IP, Austin Lucas gave up an hit and an unearned run in 1.1IP, and Jeremiah Meiners allowed 2H/2R (1ER), 2K:1BB in the final IP. GCL Mets win 9-5. Ryan Ditthardt and Roberto Pena had three hits each, while Jose Vargas and Kyle Redinger each collected two hits. Chan-Jong Moon, despite his three errors, also drew three walks.

Man of the Match: Mark Jones


Kevin said...

His full name is James Andrew Robinson. He was on the preseason roster as James, but prefers to be called Andrew, so we will be going with that from now on.

I am James Andrew Robinson's mother, and he has always gone by th name Andrew. Thanks Kevin for clarifying this as well. I guess I should've named him Andrew James.......

KRob said...

Also, I don't think you have Andrew's stats right for that game. He has only allowed 1ER so far for the ValleyCats.

As a 'middle name boy' myself, I can say it has its advantages (phone call asking for me by my first name is always a big clue I don't want to talk to 'em, among others...). Thanks for coming by the site and clarifying KRob!

BTW, I have to think this foray has helped make Andrew Robinson an early front-runner in the (second?) annual Astros County Adopt-a-Player contest!
