Minor League Recap: August 5, 2012

Columbus 1, Norfolk 0

For the second time in three nights, Columbus won by a 1-0 margin. Yesterday's effort was led by T.J. McFarland, who had been scuffling since his promotion to AAA. McFarland only allowed four baserunners in eight innings (three hits, one walk) while holding the Tide scoreless. Cord Phelps helped carry the offense, again, with a 2-3 outing with two doubles and a walk.

Akron 5, New Hampshire 6

After a strong first four innings in his AA debut, Danny Salazar fell apart in the fifth, with a little "help" from Rob Bryson, as the Fishercats scored five runs to pull ahead. Chun-Hsiu Chen went 3-4 in the game, while Nick Weglarz was 2-2 with two doubles and a walk.

Carolina 7, Lynchburg 6

Carolina rallied for three runs in the eight and ninth to win the game. Tony Wolters was the offensive hero, going 3-5 with a double and a HR (#4). Carlos Moncrief, Giovanny Urshela and Alex Monsalve all added two hits apiece.

Lake County 1, South Bend 8

Roberto "Fausto" Hernandez went 7.1 innings and struck out nine batters, but allowed four solo HRs. I am not sure what the weather conditions were like, but four homeruns to low-A hitters cannot be a good thing in his comeback. Jordan Smith had a HR for LC (#6) and Leo Castillo added a double and a triple.

Mahoning Valley 4, Tri-City 5

Hunter Jones, Joseph Wendle and Joe Sever combined to go 7-14 with two doubles and a HR (Wendle, #3), but that was not enough to hold off Tri-City.

AZL Indians 1, AZL Padres 2

AZL Indians 7, AZL Padres 3

In the opening game, Dillon Howard had a slightly more encouraging outing, giving up two runs in 3.1 innings but striking out six while only issuing one walk. Eric Haase went 2-3 with a double in that game.
