8/7 Minor matters

Tuesday’s games

Edgar Gonzalez hit three home runs, and Darnell McDonald, Dave Sappelt and Mike Olt each hit one to lead Iowa to a 10-3 win over Tacoma. Gonzalez went 5-for-6 with four RBIs. It was the first three-homer game since Ian Stewart did so June 8 against Round Rock. Ty Wright reached base four times, collecting three hits. For Olt, it was his 12th home run of the season.

Eric Jokisch threw a no-hitter to help Tennessee beat Jacksonville, 10-0. Jokisch was making his first start since coming off the DL because of arm fatigue. He struck out eight and walked four, throwing 108 pitches. Javier Baez backed him up, going 4-for-6 with two doubles, three runs scored, three RBIs, a stolen base, and a hit-saving catch for the second out in the ninth. Rubi Silva had three hits and one RBIs.

Daytona had Tuesday off, and returns to action against Clearwater. Scott Baker is scheduled to start, his fifth rehab outing.

Oliver Zapata and Reggie Golden each homered to help Kane County beat Clinton, 6-2. Tayler Scott picked up the win, giving up two runs over five innings. Zapata finished with three RBIs.

The South beat the North, 8-7, in the Northwest League All-Star Game. Boise’s Jacob Rogers was the lone Hawks position player to get a hit. James Pugliese pitched two-thirds of an inning, and Tyler Bremer converted the save.

Kevin Brown and Wilfredo Petit each had two hits in Mesa’s 2-1 loss to the Dodgers.


I think we will see Reggie Golden in a Cubs uniform by 2015.

He was batting 9th in last nights game. He was drafted in the 2nd round in 2010. He has not progressed past Kane County in 3 years and currently hitting .238 with an OBP of .286.
I am very curious why you think that?

This is Poppy. Here is my minor league scouting report on Reggie “The” Golden “Retriever”. Here’s a guy who has a lot of talent, but he doesn’t quite have what it takes to make it to the next level. In the old days, you’d just go spend a weekend at Jason Grmisley’s house and suddenly you’d be hitting 30 homers a season, but them days are over! Speaking of Golden Retrievers, Air Bud 7th Inning Fetch is the most underrated baseball movie of all time. You might be saying, “Poppy, what about The Natural?” Well to that I say The Natural didn’t have a dog that could play baseball, nor did it have Al from Home Improvement. Ladies and gents, I rest my case and you can close the book on that one.

Ever think of writing a book Poppy? Might be a best seller.
