6/26 Minor matters

Tuesday’s games

Yoanner Negrin gave up six runs (four earned) on four hits over two-thirds of an inning in Iowa’s 7-0 loss to Memphis. The I-Cubs were held to one hit in the game, a single by Jae-Hoon Ha.

Matt Szczur had three hits, including a walkoff RBI double in the 14th, and Christian Villanueva and Elliot Soto each hit home runs to lift Tennessee to a 7-6 extra inning victory over Jackson. Justin Bour had two hits, and one RBI.

Matt Loosen gave up one run on one hit and one walk over seven innings in Daytona’s 5-2 win over Lakeland. Loosen struck out eight, and retired the last 18 batters faced. Wes Darvill had two hits and three RBIs.

Albert Almora had two hits, both doubles, and scored two runs in Kane County’s 9-5 loss to Beloit. The Cougars are 0-5 in the second half. Dan Vogelbach had two hits and stole a base, his fourth. Jeimer Candelario and Rock Shoulders had two hits each.

Boise’s game against Hillsboro was postponed becasue of rain. On Monday, Paul Blackburn was named Northwest League Pitcher of the Week. He gave up one unearned run over 10 innings in two starts and struck out 12.

Anthony Prieto gave up five runs on thre hits and two walks over 3 1/3 innings in Mesa’s 14-4 loss to the Giants. Erick Castillo had two hits.


Shout out to MatB. Maybe MatB is right about Szcuzr being looked upon as a call up!! The kid is impressive. Yikes, how can that be Mat if HWSRN thinks no way in heck is Szcuzr ready for a call up?? Good thing we dismiss his opinions as nothing more than afterthoughts.

Really, for the time being I would like to see him get around 150 at bats in Iowa. If he’s still got an OBP around .360, and he’s still scoring runs, stealing bases and driving in runs, then I think a September callup would be in order.

and that definitely seems justifiable and reasonable but getting a call up straight from AA wasn’t/isn’t going to happen like my previous statement but if Joey wants to continue being a prick and putting words in my mouth that is fine… i got broad shoulders and can handle it

Gonna keep banging my drum. Szczur on base 2 more times, 1 more run scored, 2 more RBI.

You go Mat! I’m with ya all the way. You keep banging your drum and I’ll keep being a pri…veledged commentator. Hail Szczur!!
