Minor League Recap: August 11, 2012

Columbus 0, Indianapolis 4

Indianapolis pitched a rare shutout against Columbus, as the Clippers managed just four hits in the game. TJ McFarland had homerun problems, as he gave up three in his seven innings. Rafael Perez re-emerged with a clean 8th innings and J.C. Romero pitched a scoreless ninth. Romero's opt-out date is coming up this week, so the Indians will need to decide if he is a good option for them going forward.

Akron 8, New Hampshire 3

Thomas Neal went 2-3 with a HR (#10), a double and a walk. Ryan Rohlinger and Tyler Holt also added a pair of hits. Danny Salazar went five innings in his start, allowing just one unearned run on four hits. In his first two appearances with Akron, Salazar has yet to find his strikeout pitches, as he has logged just three so far at AA. Bryce Stowell made his first appearance since July 2, pitching a scoreless inning of relief. Loek Van Mil went two innings, the sixth time in his past ten appearances he has gone at least two innings.

Carolina 3, Lynchburg 7

Giovanny Urshela, Alex Monsalve and Anthony Gallas all hit doubles, but Carolina was no able to overcome the five runs given up in relief by Jeff Johnson and Cole Cook.

Lake County 2, South Bend 7

Jose Ramirez went 4-5, adding his 11th SB of the season in the Captains' loss. Mason Radeke pitched fairly well in his start, striking out seven and walking just one in five innings of work. Since moving into the rotation in early July, Radeke has recorded 46 Ks in 40.1 innings.

Mahoning Valley 9, Auburn 2

Juan Romero hit his team-leading 7th HR and, perhaps more notably, walked twice without striking out. Romero has a .192/.250/.433 line with huge power potential, but just six walks and 51 Ks in his 110+ plate appearances.

AZL Indians 4, AZL A's 5

Tyler Booth and Anthony Santandar both went 3-5 with two doubles apiece. Dillon Howard was stretched out to six innings as Goodyear's starter.
