Scranton 5, Louisville 4

With the folks at Dunder Mifflin in attendance Aroldis Chapman (undrafted FA - 2010) had his worst outing, giving up 2 ER on 2 solo HR, 5 H, and 2 BB while striking out 4.  Chapman’s ERA ballooned to 1.29 with 22 Ks in 21 innings.

25 Year-old Chris Heisey (17th Rd – 2006) went 2-5 with a 2B.  Heisey is now hitting .243/.308/.435.  In 5 pro seasons he has hit .296/.367/.459 in 2009 PA.


Jacksonville 3, Carolina 1

24 year-old Dominican Denis Phipps (undrafted FA – 2004) went 1-3 with a 2B.  Phipps is now hitting .271/.303/.400, in 74 PAs he has just 4 BB.  I guess the saying about not walking off the Island is true.

26 year-old Nebraskan Eric Eymann (19th Rd – 2005) went 2-4 with an RBI.  Eymann is now hitting .266/.273/.344, in 65 PAs he has just one BB.  I guess the saying about not walking out of Nebraska is true.


Kinston 5, Lynchburg 3

23 year-old Dave Sappelt (9th Rd – 2008) went 2-4 with a R and a 2B.  Sappelt has started off his second pro season hitting .288/.347/.364.

20 year-old Venezuelan second baseman Henry Rodriguez (Undrafted FA – 2007) went 2-4 with a run.  Rodriquez is now hitting .279/.289/.488….wow another guy with only one BB in 87 PAs.

    “Chapman’s ERA ballooned to 1.29…” 😆 ….Send him down to AA 😉

    Geez, another 0-for-4 night for the minor league affiliates.

    99 pitches and 64 strikes for Chapman looks better.

    Flipping through the milb gameday by inning, it appears he threw a first-pitch strike to a lot more batters…except the 4th inning…started everyone with a ball…another would-be basestealer was picked off in the first inning.

    Lackluster effort by the Dragons (especially on offense) last night…but one kid that caught my attention, Doug Salinas, who has been pretty darn good early on. I know nothing about this guy.

    Tells you something about how bad things are going for the Dragons when they bring in their closer in the 9th when they’re down 4-0.
