The two DSL teams are in action, but the FCL Pirates are off.  They played on Wednesday this week and that’s normally an off-day, so we won’t see them until Monday.

Flowers stranded two of Priester’s runners, then gave up one run over the last two and a third.  The offense didn’t show up.  Connor Scott homered, his fourth longball of the year, and Andres Alvarez had two singles as well as his 19th steal.  Apart from two walks and a hit batsman, that was it.

Game Recap:

The second game didn’t go much better, with the Curve (48-53) losing, 4-2.  Colin Selby, who’s returning from injury, started and worked an inning and two-thirds.  He gave up four hits and one run.  Carmen Mlodzinski went the rest of the way.  He gave up the other three runs to take the loss, although he only allowed four hits and didn’t walk anybody.  The Curve again managed just three hits.  Jared Triolo had a double and a triple, and Liover Peguero had a single.  Altoona had a shot in the bottom of the seventh thanks to four straight, one-out walks, but Triolo hit into a double play to end the game.

Starting Pitcher: Nick Garcia

  • Final Line: 1 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Notable Performances:

  • The report is negative.

Game Recap:

Greensboro (43-56) nearly got no-hit in losing to Bowling Green, 6-0.  Nick Garcia started and lasted only one inning, giving up four hits and two runs.  He threw 28 pitches, so it’s not clear whether the pitch count is the reason he came out.  Domingo Gonzalez followed with three shutout innings, but Matt Eckelman gave up three runs in the fifth inning.  The Hoppers, meanwhile, didn’t get a hit until Yoyner Fajardo singled with one out in the eighth.  Luke Brown singled in the ninth for the only other hit.

Game Recap:

The Black team (20-26) lost to the Cubs Blue, 4-2.  The game mostly went wrong in the second inning.  Starter Diego Chiquillo got through the first, but he began the second with three straight walks.  After an error, he exited.  Chiquillo was charged with three runs, one earned.  The bullpen gave up just one more run and the Cubs had only three hits total.  The Pirates had only four, including Rodolfo De La Cruz’ fourth home run of the season.  Ewry Espinal had a hit and a walk.  Angel Rodriguez reached three times, on a walk and two hit batsmen.  Eduardo Oviedo stole two bases.

Following the Indy game on LameDay. Burrows seems to be in or close to the zone with most pitches. Largely, he’s down in the zone as well. I think he needs to go high with his 4-seamer some and more out of the zone when ahead in the count. It seem that the hitters are zeroing in on him given the limited area he’s pitching to.

Anyone watching that can confirm/correct what I think I’m seeing?


Seemed like a lot of week contact hits. Other than the hr pulled just fair


They must not be satisfied with Nunez’s batting practice. He’s probably swinging primarily at pitches in the zone. DH and 3rd base have batting averages less than .160


Nick no stick strikes out on his first at bat


picking up right where he left off. strikes out again.

good stuff!


Not a good outing for Priester today. He just didn’t have his best stuff today. On to the next start.


Have they ever promoted from the DSL to the US in-season? Silvera has to be a candidate. He was pretty good last year at 17 (sub 3 ERA), but he is just dominating this season. It’s time to challenge him.
