7/30 Minor matters – Tuesday’s games

Kris Bryant hit his 12th home run, a solo shot, and Dae-Eun Rhee threw six scoreless innings but it wasn’t enough as Iowa lost, 2-1 in 10 innings to New Orleans. Bryant had been in a mini slump. He was batting .194 (7-for-36) in his 11 games, July 19-27. Mike Olt had two hits, and was batting .320 with Iowa. It was Iowa’s sixth straight loss.

Tennessee tied the game with a run in the top of the ninth but lost, 3-2, to Birmingham. Jae-Hoon Ha had two hits, including a double. He tied the game with a RBI single in the ninth. Pierce Johnson gave up two runs over six innings.

Kyle Schwarber hit a walk-off two-run homer in the 10th to lead Daytona to a 6-4 win over Bradenton. Schwarber finished with two hits, also hitting a double. Wes Darvill had two hits, and has five RBIs in his last four games.

Jacob Rogers hit two home runs, both solo shots, in Kane County’s 3-2 loss to Wisconsin. Duane Underwood gave up two runs over five innings.

Boise romped 11-2 over Hillsboro. Danny Lockhart was 4-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs. Mark Zagunis had three hits and two RBIs and Danny Canela drove in three runs on three hits.

Mesa committed five errors in a 11-4 loss to the Angels. Andrew Ely had three hits, and Gleyber Torres tripled and drove in two runs.


This Torres kid is going to be good……..and he plays shortstop…….can never have too many great shortstops.

Where did I hear or was it read that comment prior, the one about never having too many shortstops? Seems to me someone in a position of authority with the organization said something very similar to that recently. Wonder who that was. Hmmm!

not going to give up on OLT yet he still could become a weapon look at rizzo and castro spending aug in AAA could do wonders for his confidence and maybe we should do the same for lake.
