Minor League Wrap 8.26.2011

Toledo 1, Buffalo 0 (Mets)

Jacob Turner looked impressive but did not factor in the decision. Turner threw 6 shutout innings and held Buffalo to 4 hits and a walk while striking out 6. Brayan Villareal (LHP) earned his third win of the year and Enrique Gonzalez picked up his 12th save after three combined innings of shutout relief.

Timo Perez (LF) drove in the only run of the game on an RBI single in the bottom of the 8th. In his first game after being promoted from AA Erie, Justin Henry (3B) was 2-4 from the plate. In 363 ABs with Erie, Henry hit .311, with an OBP of .414.

Erie 7, Bowie 5 (Orioles)

Jay Voss (LHP) received a no decision following a mediocre start: 6 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 6 k. Jared Gayhart (RHP) improved to 5-0 on the year after 2 1/3 scoreless innings of relief.

Bryan Pounds (3B) was 2-4 with 2 RBI and a run scored. Brent Wyatt (OF) also drove in 2 runs.

Lakeland 6, Clearwater 8 (Phillies)

Reliever Kenny Faulk (LHP) allowed 2 unearned runs in the bottom of the 8th and got stuck with the loss. Victor Larez (RHP) started the game and got the hook after 5 innings and 5 ER. Zach Samuels (RHP) replaced him and coughed up another ER in 2 innings of work.

Avisail Garcia (RF) homered twice and drove in 3 in 4 ABs. Jordan Lennerton (1B) went 3-5 with a triple, an RBI, and a run scored.

West Michigan 4, Lake County 2 (Indians)

Josue Carreno (RHP) and Ryan Woolley (RHP) combined to throw a tremendous game. Carreno started, earned the win, and went 5 and Woolley made it 4 to pick up the save. Each man gave up an ER.

Hernan Perez has struggled over his last 10, but responded well with a  2-4, 1 RBI night. Castellanos went 2-4 with a double and a RBI. The final 2 WM runs were driven in by Jones and Krizan.

    Timo has had a really nice minor league career with his .315 lifetime average. He was consistently good and consistently came just short of having a major league career. He just had a bad mix of circumstances, timing, bad luck, and shifting from team to team that just didn’t mix well for his development. So close and if he could do it all over again and just had a few random bounces in the other direction he could have had a much better career path. The Mets screwed him up first and the Tigers screwed him up last, and the rest is history, oh well. Nice career Timo, better luck in your next life!

    And oh we still have Jacob Turner? I’m surprised we didn’t trade him for Thome or Kubel as of yet. LOL
