Minor League Play of the Day: Wladimir Balentien with his 2-2 night with a homer. Pretty slim pickins last night.
28 year old Wladimir Balentien went 2-2 with a homer, 2 walks, and scored 2 of the 4 Bat runs.
27 year old Drew Sutton went 3-3 with a double and drove in 2 runs. On the season he’s only hitting .241/.315/.348, but over the last 10 games he’s .379/.500/.517. Is there anyone that doesn’t think he could do as good a job as Cairo?
22 year old Aroldis Chapman got the win for Louisville (4-2), throwing 5 2/3, giving up 3 hits, 0 runs, walking 3 and striking out 7. He lowered his ERA to 3.98. His walks per 9 innings is still almost 6.
27 year old Sean Danielson was the only multihit Mudcat, with two singles.
25 year old Travis Webb struggled in his 4th AA start, giving up 4 runs in 5 innings, but he walked 6.
Krebs, Valiquette, and Smith threw 4 shutout innings for the Mudcats.
24 year old Mark Serrano started and threw 2 scoreless innings, but for some reason left the game at that point, I don’t know why at this point.
Aaron’s 27 year old brother, Daryl Harang, promptly came in and threw gas on the fire…going 3 1/3 giving up 8 earned runs on 9 hits and raising his ERA to 12.15. Why is a 27 year old guy on an A ball roster?
Former IU football player, 22 year old Andrew Means raised his BA back over the .300 mark with a 3-4 night (double), but his OBP is still only .322. (3 walks in 144 PA).
