    Why doesn't Wade bring up Fernando Rodriguez? He has some sick numbers down in OKC. Hitters are only hitting .145 against him and he has 24 strikeouts in 18 innings. Stop bringing up Jose Valdez.

    Ryan Rowland-Smith pitched 6 innings of 1-run ball, striking out 7, as OKC came out on top over Tacoma 3-1. The RBI's were supplied by Jason Michaels and Jose Vallejo. Fernando Rodriguez shut the door for the save.

    Corpus Christi had the night off. They begin a series in Frisco tomorrow night, as Ross Seaton takes the mound for the Hooks. He'll match up against Jacob Brigham for the RoughRiders.

    Lancaster dropped another one to San Jose tonight, losing 5-2. Jay Austin went 2-5 with a double and scored a run on a Giants error in the top of the 1st. Jonathan Villar provided the only RBI, a groundout scoring Kody Hinze. Robert Donovan took the loss, allowing 5 runs in 6.1 innings.

    A 9-run 5th for Kannapolis leads to an 11-7 defeat for Lexington. Ben Orloff and Delino DeShields each had 2 RBI, and Mike Kvasnicka went 2-4 with an RBI, raising his average to .304. Mike Foltynewicz got the loss, allowed 8 hits and 7 runs in only 4 innings. He pitched to 6 Intimidators in the 5th.

    Random facts of the day: Murilo Gouvea, a pitcher for the Lexington Legends, is Brazilian.

    Jose Altuve is currently the only Lancaster JetHawks player that is hitting over .300.

    On the strength of 3 errors and allowing Tacoma to score in 7 out of 9 innings, OKC loses 13-3. Brandon Barnes, Max Ramirez, and J.B. Shuck each had 2 hits and drove in a run. Douglas Arguello, who took the loss, struck out 7 and allowed 5 hits and 3 runs in 5 innings of work.

    Jeff Keppinger began his rehab assignment with Corpus Christi tonight. Batting 2nd, he went 2-5 with a double, an RBI, and scored twice. Jacob Goebbert homered, but it wasn't enough as the Hooks fell 10-7 to Frisco. Ross Seaton went 6 innings, but he allowed 10 hits and 7 runs (6 earned). He walked one and struck out 3. He escaped being tagged with the loss; Andrew Robinson wasn't so lucky, however. In his 2nd appearance since being called up from Lancaster, he allowed 3 hits and 3 runs in 1.1 innings of relief.

    Lancaster tied the game at 4 in the 6th, but San Jose scored 1 run in the bottom half to take the lead, one that would hold up as the Jethawks lose 5-4. Jose Thompson, who was just sent down from Corpus Christi, marked his debut with a 2-run homer in the 2nd. Jonathan Meyer added a 2-run shot of his own in the 6th. Unfortunately, Tommy Joseph gave the Giants the lead in the bottom half with his solo homer off Jake Buchanan. Buchanan's name ended up next to the L in the box score. He falls to 3-2, still sporting a stellar ERA of 2.19. In 7 innings, he allowed 7 hits (2 homers) and 5 runs (4 earned), walking 2 and striking out 6. His WHIP is now .97. Please promote him NOW!!!

    Lexington allowed 4 runs in the 2nd and 1 more in the 3rd as they lose to Kannapolis 5-2. Mike Kvasnicka went 2-4, driving in both runs. Jio Mier went 3-4 with a double. Tanner Bushue's 5-decision win streak was snapped as he loses for the first time this season. He only lasted 1 inning, giving up 4 hits and 4 runs (3 earned).

    Everyone lost.

    Anderson Hernandez homered and Oswaldo Navarro went 4-4 with a homer and 4 RBI, but OKC ended up with a 9-8 loss to Tacoma in 10. Henry Villar was roughed up, allowing 8 hits and 7 runs in 5 innings, but he escaped with a no-decision as the Redhawks tied the game at 8 in the 8th. Fernando Rodriguez, however, got the loss, as he gave up an unearned run in the 10th.

    Jonathan Gaston drove in 2 runs. Those would be the only runs that the Hooks would score as they fell 5-2 to Frisco. Dallas Keuchel, in his first start since colliding with David Flores a few weeks ago, went 5 innings, allowing 5 hits and 3 runs (2 earned), walking 1 and striking out 1. He got the loss.

    San Jose scored 1, 5, and 1 in the first 3 innings off Lancaster starter Bobby Doran, and the Jethawks would fall 9-7. Jay Austin went 2-5 with 3 RBI, and Austin Wates went 2-5 with 2 RBI. Doran allowed 10 hits to go along with the 7 runs.

    Lexington lost 12-7 to Asheville. The Tourists scored 8 in the 1st off Legends starter Brad Dydalewicz, who was charged with 7 of those runs. He did not record an out, allowing 5 hits and walking another Tourist. The first Legends reliever was Ruben Alaniz, and he was solid. In 5.2 innings of relief, he allowed 4 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), walked 1, and struck out 10. RBIs came from Tyler Burnett, Emilio King, Dan Adamson, and Roberto Pena, who had 2. Mike Kvasnicka went 3-5 with 2 doubles and scored twice. He's raised his average up to .322.

    The only person who seems to fall in that category as of now is Jordan Lyles, as much of the organization's talent is with the single-A clubs. The club's holding him back to delay his MLB clock, but I believe Lyles will be up sometime in June.

    I'm hoping J.D. Martinez gets moved to OKC once he's off the DL in Corpus, and eventually gets the call from Houston. He didn't even need to inflate his stats in Lancaster last year. He can flat-out hit.

    Jordan Lyles got the start tonight for OKC as they began a series against Salt Lake, and he bounced back from a shaky start last time out against Omaha, going 7, allowing 7 hits and 2 runs, striking out 4 while not allowing a walk. Sadly, he was the tough-luck loser as the Redhawks could only muster a single run in the 2-1 loss. Lyles drops to 1-3 on the season, sporting a 3.97 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and 35 K's in 45.1 innings. Koby Clemens drove in Drew Locke with a single in the 7th.

    Continuing his rehab assignment, Jeff Keppinger was back at 2nd tonight for the Hooks. Batting 3rd, he homered in the 6th. But, the offense was baffled by a rehabbing Scott Feldman, who held the Hooks to 2 hits and a run from an Andrew Simunic groundout in his 5 innings. Hooks lose 11-2. Kyle Greenwalt allowed 7 hits and 7 runs in 4 innings.

    Jose Cisnero turned in his finest performance of the season for Lancaster, pitching 7.2 scoreless innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 walks, and fanning 7 as the Jethawks took care of Lake Elsinore 5-1. The damage was done by the bottom of the order, as Jonathan Meyer went 2-4 with an RBI, while Ben Heath and Grant Hogue drove in 2 runs apiece.

    Dan Adamson came through with an RBI single in the bottom of the 8th, scoring Mike Kvasnicka, breaking a 4-4 tie. The score would hold up; Legends defeat Asheville 5-4. Jio Mier homered in the 4th; it was his 4th homer of the season. Adam Bailey went 2-4 with an RBI. Carlos Quevedo struck out 13 in 6 innings. The downside? He allowed 8 hits and 4 runs. No decision for him. Brian Streilein got the win in 2.1 no-hit relief innings. He walked 1 and K'd 4.

    Quevedo has allowed 53 hits in his 37.2 innings this season, but at the same time, he has 36 strikeouts, compared to 2 walks.

    Entering the bottom of the 4th leading Salt Lake 1-0, OKC explodes for 4 to extend their lead on the way to a 5-2 victory. RBIs came from Max Ramirez, Oswaldo Navarro, and 2 from Tommy Manzella. Sergio Perez allowed 7 hits and 2 runs in 6 innings to earn the W. Fernando Rodriguez shut the door for the save.

    Jimmy Paredes smacked a go-ahead double in the top of the 11th to send Corpus Christi to a 4-3 win over Frisco. Jacob Goebbert set the table with a leadoff double. After a Wladimir Sutil single that put Goebbert on 3rd, Paredes got to work. All in all, a great day at the plate for him, as he went 4-6 with another double, scoring once, and the decisive RBI. Federico Hernandez and T.J. Steele each drove in a run, as well. Jeff Keppinger, DH-ing and batting 3rd today, went 3-5 and walked once. Xavier Cedeno, the starter, lasted 6, allowing 6 hits and 3 runs, walking 1 and striking out 5. Pat Urckfitz got the win in relief, allowing 1 hit and striking out 1 in 2 innings.

    The Cali League is known for its gaudy offensive showings, and today was no different. Visalia massacred Inland Empire 17-2, and Modesto hung 22 on Bakersfield. :)eek::eek::eek:)

    Whoops, got sidetracked there. Sorry about that. Lancaster's TD, 2-point conversion, and 2 field goals trumped Lake Elsinore's TD and missed extra point. Jonathan Villar ended up leaving the game due to injury. Miguel Arrendell ended up going to short from left field, and entering the game to play left field was Jordan Comadena, his first appearance in a week. All he did was go 2-3 with 4 RBI. Not to be outdone, Jose Altuve clubbed a 3-run homer in the 4th, part of a 9-run explosion. Kody Hinze went back-to-back with a solo job, his 11th. The Jethawks sent 13 men to the plate that inning, with Arrendell, Comadena, Rene Garcia, and Grant Hogue batting twice in the 4th. Luis Cruz got shelled, allowing 7 hits and 5 runs, and uncorking 2 wild pitches in 2.2 innings, but got bailed out thanks to the monster offensive day. Andrew Robinson allowed 1 run in 3.1 relief innings to get the win.

    Lexington's game with Asheville was postponed today. They will play a doubleheader of 7-inning games tomorrow, the first game starting at 10:05 AM Eastern.

    Also, here's an interview with Jose Altuve, courtesy of MiLB.com: http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/multimedia/vpp.jsp?content_id=14821943

    Two 2-run homers from Brandon Barnes and Tommy Manzella was OKC's offense tonight. However, Ross Wolf allowed 3 runs in the top of the 9th as Salt Lake steals the game, 5-4. Jeff Keppinger batted 3rd tonight and went 0-4. Ryan Rowland-Smith went 7 innings, allowing 5 hits and 2 runs while walking 3 and striking out 6.

    Looking to gain a measure of revenge after getting smashed in a series against San Antonio this month, the Hooks were powered by 3 RBIs from Jacob Goebbert, and one each from T.J. Steele and Jonathan Gaston in a 5-1 victory. Jonnathan Aristil got the win, throwing 6 innings of 1-run ball, striking out 4 in the proceedings.

    One night after a 14-6 shellacking of Lake Elsinore, Lancaster was bombed 12-1. Jonathan Meyer drove in the only run. Robert Donovan took the brunt of the assault, allowing 7 runs in his 3.2 innings of work.

    Lexington split today's doubleheader with Asheville, winning 2-1 in game 1, then losing 1-0 in the 2nd game. Tyler Burnett and Emilio King drove in the runs; King's 5th-inning RBI single was the deciding hit. Juan Minaya struck out 10 and allowed 2 hits in 5 innings to get the W. In the 2nd game, Adam Bailey went 3-3. Joey Wong singled in the winning run in the 7th for the Tourists. That was the one blemish for Jason Chowning, who was saddled with the loss. In 4 innings of relief, he allowed 4 hits, the deciding run, and struck out 8.

    OKC was blanked tonight by Salt Lake 3-0. They were held to 5 hits, with Jeff Keppinger collecting 3 of them. Douglas Arguello allowed 3 runs in 4 innings, getting the loss.

    Ross Seaton was touched up for 6 hits and 6 runs in 4 innings as Corpus Christi was never in it against San Antonio, losing 8-1. Jimmy Paredes provided the only RBI.

    Lancaster scored 5 in the bottom of the 7th to take a 7-6 lead over High Desert, but the Mavericks scored 1 in the 8th and 2 in the 9th to regain the lead. The Jethawks closed to within 1, but couldn't bring the tying run across as they lose 9-8. Grant Hogue, the 9-hole hitter, drove in 3. Miguel Arrendell went 3-4 with 2 RBI and scored 3 times. He hit the solo homer in the 9th that made it 9-8. Jake Buchanan had his worst outing of the season, allowing 9 hits and 6 runs (5 earned) in 4 innings. Yordany Ramirez blew the save and took the loss, allowing 2 runs in 1.1 innings of relief.

    Lexington was supposed to start a series with the West Virginia Power, but they got rained out. Mike Foltynewicz will match up against The Woodlands' Jameson Taillon in the first game of the doubleheader tomorrow morning.

    OKC had the night off.

    Dallas Keuchel allowed 7 hits in 2 runs in 6 innings, but he walked 4 against 1 strikeout, and the Hooks lost to San Antonio 2-1, with the only run coming from a T.J. Steele groundout scoring Jimmy Paredes.

    Lancaster lost 10-8 to High Desert. Jose Altuve went 4-4 and drove in a run; Kody Hinze and Jose Thompson both went 2-4, drove in a run, and scored a run. Ben Heath and Jordan Comadena both went 2-5 and drove in 2 runs. Bobby Doran got the loss, allowing 10 hits and 8 runs (6 earned) in 4.2 innings, walking 1 and striking out 5.

    Lexington split the doubleheader against West Virginia. In game 1, Mike Foltynewicz got his first win, outpitching Jameson Taillon of TWHS in a 4-2 victory. Adam Bailey hit his 9th homer of the season, and Tyler Burnett and Emilio King each drove in a run. Folty allowed 1 hit and 2 runs (1 earned, and the hit was not a home run) and struck out 5 despite walking 4. In game 2, the Power surged to a 9-0 lead by the middle of the 4th. Adam Bailey homered again and Chris Wallace drove in a run. The Legends lose game 2, 9-3. Brian Streilein allowed 9 hits and 8 runs in only 2.1 innings to get the loss.

    How's your end of the world day coming along?

    OKC defeated Sacramento 3-1. Article on Jordan Lyles getting his first win since April 23: http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/...&content_id=19357032&fext=.jsp&vkey=news_milb

    RBIs came from J.B. Shuck, Jeff Keppinger, and Robinson Cancel.

    J.D. Martinez played in his first game since being activated from the DL. Batting 4th, he went 0-4 with an RBI as the DH as the Hooks topped Midland 5-4. Others driving in runs were Wladimir Sutil, Brandon Wikoff, Jimmy Van Ostrand, and Federico Hernandez. Xavier Cedeno allowed 4 runs, but went 8 innings and struck out 8 to get the win.

    Lancaster let an 8-run 4th and a 9-7 lead entering the 8th go to waste as High Desert scored 5 in the 8th and 1 more in the 9th to defeat the Jethawks 13-9. Kody Hinze, Austin Wates, and Jonathan Meyer each drove in a run, as did Ben Heath. Jose Thompson drove in 2, and Jordan Comadena added a 3-run homer in the 4th. Luis Cruz, the starter, allowed 6 runs and 4 hits. All 4 hits he allowed were homers. Zach Grimmett was credited with a hold and charged with the loss, allowing 3 runs and 1 hit (not a homer) and walking 2.

    Chris Wallace homered, but it wasn't enough for Lexington as they lose to Asheville 3-2. Dan Adamson drove in the other run. Ruben Alaniz took the loss, allowing 3 hits and 3 runs (1 earned) in his 6 innings. He walked 1 and struck out 6.

    The Sacramento RiverCats ran roughshod over OKC today, scoring in every inning but the 6th and 7th en route to an 11-2 thrashing. Robinson Cancel went 3-4 and drove in the only run. OKC's pitchers walked 10 batters. Ryan Rowland-Smith allowed 11 hits and 7 runs in 4 innings, getting the loss. He walked 4 and struck out 3.

    Jacob Goebbert clubbed a 3-run homer in the 6th for Corpus Christi. It was all the Hooks needed as they topped Midland 3-2. He's really held his own since being called up from Lancaster. Actually, he's playing a bit better than he was in Lancaster. His OPS in Corpus is 181 points higher than it was in the Cali League. Combined, Goebbert is hitting .270 with 7 homers and 30 RBI. He owns a 20:28 BB:K ratio, with a .794 OPS (.352 OBP, .442 slugging). Well, he's had twice as many ABs in Lancaster, and 52 at-bats is a minuscule sample size, but he owned an .808 OPS in Lexington with 10 homers and 98 RBI.

    Anyway, Ross Seaton got the win. He allowed 5 hits and 1 run in 7 1/3 innings of work. Why does it seem to me that he's a bit shaken from his debacle of last season in Lancaster?

    Speaking of Lancaster, they were shut down by Lake Elsinore as they walked off 2-1 losers. Kody Hinze doubled home Jose Altuve in the 7th to tie the game at 1, but Wande Olabisi had the walk-off suicide squeeze for the Storm. Jake Buchanan, fresh off his worst outing of the season, allowed 5 hits and 1 run, striking out 6 while not issuing a BB in 8, had to settle for a no-decision as Kirk Clark got 1 out in the 9th, but allowed one hit and walked 2, not to mention, he also allowed the winning run for LE.

    Entering the 7th inning, Lexington trailed 5-2. They outscored Asheville 5-1 in that frame, then added 2 more in the 8th for good measure. Legends came out on top 9-6. Roberto Pena got the party started with a single and came around to score when Adam Bailey was plunked with the bases loaded. Chris Wallace followed up with a 2-run single scoring Emilio King and Delino DeShields Jr. Adam Bailey ended up scoring and Wallace reached 3rd, as an error was charged to the Tourists. Pena and King scored on two more Asheville errors in the 8th. King went 3-4 and scored twice, as noted earlier; he's hitting .440. Jio Mier also added a homer in the 1st, his 5th of the season. DeShields went 1-5 with an RBI; he's hitting .231. David Martinez got the victory in relief despite allowing 2 homers in his 3 innings. He allowed 1 other hit, and 3 runs, striking out 1.

    You're welcome, moon. I put the thread on my back doe! :grin:

    Anyway, OKC jumped Fresno with 3 runs in the top of the 1st, as Koby Clemens had a 2-run double in the frame. Brian Dopirak drove him home. The Grizzlies chipped away with a run in the 3rd and 5th, but the Redhawks scored 2 in the 9th to seal the game. Oklahoma City 5, Fresno 2. Nelson Figueroa got the win, allowing 7 hits and 2 runs in his 6.2 innings. He walked 3 and struck out 5. Dan Carpenter notched save #2 on the year. Jeff Keppinger played 2nd and hit 2nd, going 1-4 and scoring once.

    OKC was the only affiliate with a game tonight, as CC, Lancaster, and Lexington had the night off. They will all begin a series tomorrow.

    The Hooks will head off to Springfield tomorrow night. Kyle Greenwalt will take the mound, and the Cardinals will counter with David Kopp.

    Jose Cisnero will start the opener of Lancaster's series against the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. The Quakes will send out Ethan Martin, selected 15th overall by the Dodgers in 2008.

    And finally, Lexington will welcome the Rome Braves to Whitaker Bank Ballpark. The pitching matchup will be Ruben Alaniz for Lexington matching up with Carlos Perez for Rome.

    Lyles should be getting his Astro jersey fitted pretty soon. Although, I would expect to see him in August once Myers and/or Wandy get dealt. I will say, I do want to see him strikeout a few more hitters.

    What a night for Drew Locke, Brandon Barnes, and Robinson Cancel. Cancel went 2-4 with a solo homer, Drew Locke also went 2-4 with an RBI, and Barnes went 2-4, with both of his hits being homers. Another stellar performance for Jordan Lyles. I don't believe injury was the reason he got pulled early. To me, something's up. OKC defeated Fresno 5-1. See rockets934life's post for Lyles' line for tonight.

    Hooks were doubled up by Springfield 12-6. Cardinals jumped out to a 6-0 lead after the 1st and scored 3 more in the 4th and 5th. Jacob Goebbert homered for Corpus, and Jimmy Paredes went 2-5 with an RBI and scored a run. Kyle Greenwalt allowed 7 hits, 6 runs, and 1 walk, while only recording 1 out. Needless to say, he got the loss.

    Jonathan Villar had a grand slam, and Ben Heath had a 2-run homer of his own, but.... well, the California League isn't called a hitters' paradise for no reason. Tonight was no different. Unfortunately, Lancaster was on the receiving end of the barrage. Rancho Cucamonga managed to turn a 10-5 lead into a 25-9 demolition. The Quakes scored 11 runs in the 9th! :eek: Jose Cisnero got the loss, allowing 5 hits and 4 runs (3 earned) in 4.1 innings. He walked 3 and struck out 2. Every Quake who had an RBI all drove in at least 2. Every Quake had an RBI except for Jake Lemmerman, their leadoff man. Angelo Songco, their left fielder, went 5-7 with a homer, 4 RBI, and scored 4 times. Their 3-6 hitters scored 4 times. Each. They hit 5 homers as a team, with the 3-6 guys hitting 4 of them. J.T. Wise, their catcher, scored 5 times. Jethawks pitchers walked 13 batters.

    A California League-esque display of offense on display in Lexington, as the Legends outgunned Rome 15-10. They scored in every inning except the 5th. Everyone drove in a run except for Chris Wallace, who went 0-6. Wallace and Roberto Pena were the only two without a hit. I don't know where to start here..... alright. Mike Kvasnicka went 3-4 with 4 RBI, 2 of those coming on a 3rd inning homer off Rome's Carlos Perez. Delino DeShields Jr. and Jio Mier combined to go 4-9 at the plate with 4 RBI and scored 5 runs. DeShields had a triple and scored 3 times. Ruben Alaniz gave up 8 runs in 4 innings, but he didn't factor into the decision thanks to the offensive outburst. Instead, Alex Sogard got the victory in relief, pitching 3 scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits and striking out 2. Jason Chowning followed that up with 5 K's over 2 perfect innings.

    I'd bet they've got a strict plan based on innings and they're sticking to it.

    Fine by me. I want the kid ready to go when he called up.
