PreStros Farm Report: April 23

PreStros: April 23

Oklahoma City (12-7) 

The Isotopes (LAD) and RedHawks squared off in a pitcher’s duel but OKC got the loss 3-2..

Dallas Keuchel had another good game, but not quite as good as the opposing pitcher. Keuchel went 7 innings and allowed 3 R on 7 H and 3 BB with 2 K along with 11 groundouts. Juan Abreu threw the last 2 innings and allowed 1 H and 1 BB with 3 K. Keuchel is now 3-1 on the season with a 1.67 ERA

3B-Brett Wallace went 1x4 with a solo HR, his second of the season. 2B-Jimmy Paredes was 3x4 with 1 2B and 1 R with 2 SB. RF-Justin Ruggiano went 0x4 at the plate but had 2 OF assists, both times throwing out Albuquerque catcher Tim Federowicz at home.

Man of the Match: Jimmy Paredes

Corpus Christi (9-8) 

Corpus pulled out all the stops, including a steal of home, to beat Midland (OAK) 9-3.

Erick Abreu, in his first start of the season, lasted 4 innings, giving up just 1 R on 5 H and 2 BB with 5 K. Henry Villar went the next 4 innings and gave up 2 R on 3 H and 1 BB with 1 K. Kevin Chapman took the ninth in a non-save situation and allowed just 1 H with 1 K. Chapman has looked good since coming over in the Bourgeois/Quintero trade, with 9.2 IP over seven games with 13 strikeouts and a 1.86 ERA.

The Hooks offense spread the wealth, as several players had good nights. LF-Austin Wates went 2x5 with 1 R. RF-Jake Goebbert was 2x5 with 1 2B, 1 R, and 1 RBI. 1B-Jonathan Singleton was 2x4 with 1 BB, 2 2B, 2 R, 1 RBI, and 1 SB, the aforementioned steal of home. CF-Brandon Barnes was 1x2 with 1 BB, 1 R, 4 RBI, and 1 HR. 2B-Jordan Kreke went 2x3 with 1 2B, 2 R, 1 BB, and 2 SB. 3B-Andy Simunic was 2x4 with 2 R. Simunic has four straight multi-hit games and is hitting .692 over that stretch.

Man of the Match: Brandon Barnes

Lancaster (6-12) 

Telvin Nash and Jiovanni Mier helped stake the JetHawks to an early lead and Lancaster cruised to victory over Rancho Cucamonga (LAD) 8-4.

Zach Grimmett got the win with 5.1 IP allowing 4 R on 7 H , 1 HBP, and 2 BB with 7 K. Brian Streilein threw 2.2 scoreless innings with 1 H, 1 BB, and 3 K. Kirk Clark allowed 1 H in 1 IP.

SS-Jio Mier went 1x5 with 1 3B and 3 RBI. LF-Telvin Nash was 1x2 with 3 BB and a solo HR, his 8th of the year. 1B-Erik Castro was 1x4 with 1 BB, 1 3B, and 2 R. 3B-Jonathan Meyer went 2x4 with 1 SB, 1 3B, 1 R, and 1 RBI. RF-Adam Bailey went 3x4 with 1 R and 1 RBI with 1 OF assist. C-Rene Garcia was 4x4 with 1 2B, 2 R, and 1 RBI. Garcia came into the game hitting just .181 and left with a .250 average.

Man of the Match: Rene Garcia

Lexington (8-10) 


Off Day Spotlight

Tanner Bushue
Born:                June 20, 1991
Bats/Throws:   R/R
Height/Weight: 6’4”/180lbs
Acquired:     Drafted by Houston Astros, 2009 (2nd Round)
Position:          SP

Tanner started his professional career well but may have hit a wall, as this is his third season now with Lexington. Tanner was one of the Astros top 10 prospects heading in to 2011. He throws four pitches as a starter, including a fastball that hits 93 mph and a curve ball that has potential to be a plus pitch. His homerun allowed rate has increased each of the last three seasons and he’s been letting too many runners on to get away with it. He’s still young though (he’ll turn 21 in June) so there’s plenty of time for him to get back on track.
