Down on the Farm: 5/5/2014

AAA  Fresno Grizzlies defeated the Albuquerque Isotopes 5-3:

Adam Duvall(1B)- 2 for 3, 2B, HR(9), BB.  BA= .264.
Chris Dominguez(LF)- 2 for 4, SB(7).  BA= .271.
Mike Kickham(LHP)- 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 3.16.
Heath Hembree(RHP)- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, Save(7).  ERA= 1.57.

Duvall is a ferocious hitter!  Chris Dominguez continues to hone his slap and dash game.

AA  Richmond Flying Squirrels beat the Harrisburg Senators 8-2:

Matt Duffy(SS)- 4 for 5, 2 2B.  BA= .282.
Jarrett Parker(RF)- 2 for 4, BB.  BA= .282.
Devin Harris(LF)- 2 for 4, 2B, BB.  BA= .158.
Jack Snodgrass(LHP)- 5.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K's.  ERA= 1.08.

Matt Duffy!

High A  Modesto Nuts topped the San Jose Giants 6-1:

Jesus Galindo(CF)- 2 for 4, 2 3B.  BA= .325.
Joe Kurrasch(LHP)- 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 2.45.

Galindo has been a rare bright spot for SJ and is really taking his prospect status to a higher level.  Kurrasch got shelled in his first relief appearance, but shut it down in this one.

Low A  Greenville Drive ran over the Augusta Greenjackets 13-3:

Ryder Jones(SS)- 2 for 5.  BA= .260.
Brandon Bednar(3B)- 3 for 5, 2B.  BA= .289.
Tyler Horan(RF)- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .330.


  1. Heh Doc;
    What is hapening with Arroyo?

    Richard in Winnipeg

    1. Well, he went 1 for 4 in this game and drove in 2 runs, but is hitting under .200 on the season. Young player, tough league, big jump, change of defensive positions….Not worried……yet.

    2. As my Scottish Nanny used to see to me; "patience is a virtue"!

  2. Looking forward to seeing what Arenado does this year. Probably because I have irrational visions of him producing like his brother.

    1. 25 game hitting streaks in the show. Kept alive with Home Runs. I can see it happening, clearly.

  3. I see Ford is back with Fresno.

    Who is the fastest base runner in our system now - Brown, Galindo or someone else?

    1. Fastest runner in the organization? Right now, I'm gonna say Jean Machi. Man, that was one impressive sprint down to first base last night!

  4. just curious doc, why dont you ever include pumpkinhead jr in the stats...he has been pretty solid this season


    1. I have included Bochy Jr. a few times. I only have time to type in so many names and stat lines and I guess his haven't just jumped out at me. I try to include all hitters with multi-hit games or HR's. I try to include relievers who go more than 1 IP AND a K/IP of greater than 1.
