Minor League Schedule: 7/1/11

For an in depth review of yesterday’s games please check out our minor league wrap-up which can be found here. We have added the 2nd half records for the two teams that split their season for playoff purposes. Both the FSL and SAL send their first and second half champs to the playoffs unless the same team wins both halves. Then the team with the 2nd best record in the division goes to the playoffs. No starter has been named for Indianapolis as of yet but we will update the schedule when they announce one.

Allie is making his 3rd pro start tonight

AAA: Indianapolis (42-40) @ Syracuse (33-45) 7:00pm
Probable starter: Rudy Owens (6-5 5.33)

AA: Altoona (34-44) @ Trenton (47-32) 7:05pm
Probable starter: Phillip Irwin (1-1 2.45)

Irwin is making his 3rd start since being promoted from Bradenton. He threw 6 scoreless innings in his AA debut on June 19th. He followed that up with three earned runs in 5 innings this past Sunday. He has walked just one batter in those two games and struck out eight. I will be in Trenton covering the game for the site and will have a full report later tonight.

High-A: Bradenton (36-42 overall 6-2 2nd half) VS Palm Beach (35-42 overall 6-2 2nd half) 7:00pm
Probable starter: Brandon Cumpton (0-0 5.40)

Cumpton is getting his second start at Bradenton since being promoted from WV. He went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs on eight hits in his first start on Sunday. He walked none and struck out two. He posted a 7-4 4.30 record at WV and was named to the SAL all-star team

Low-A: West Virginia (40-36 overall 5-3 2nd half) VS Greensboro ( 43-45 overall 3-5 2nd half) 7:05pm
Probable starter: Zack Von Rosenberg (3-5 6.75)

Von Rosenberg is making his 15th start of the season tonight. He gave up 7 runs over five innings his last start which followed two strong outings. His 14 home runs allowed is tied for the most in the SAL. He has issued just 13 walks on the year in 68 innings while recording 59 strikeouts, two strikeouts behind team leader Colton Cain.

Short Season A: State College (3-11) VS Mahoning Valley (10-4) 7:05pm
Probable starter: Stetson Allie (0-0 9.00)

Stetson Allie is making his 3rd pro start tonight. The 2010 2nd round draft pick has failed to get out of the 3rd inning in each of his first two starts. He has pitched just 5 innings total allowing six hits, seven walks and he has struck out six.

Rookie: GCL Pirates (5-5) VS GCL Blue Jays (4-6) 12:00pm

VSL: VSL Pirates (24-15) VS VSL Reds (19-20) 11:00am

With their win yesterday the VSL Pirates moved into 1st place in the league.

* Rudy Owens has been removed from the minor league DL and will start tonight.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
