Down on the Farm: 5/15/2017

AAA  Oklahoma City Dodgers defeated the Sacramento River Cats 6-4:

Kyle Blanks PH- 1 for 1, HR(3).  BA= .239.
Wilmer Font RHP(Dodgers)- 7 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 15 K's.  ERA= 4.29.

Blanks PH HR was a 3-run dinger in the 9'th inning.  Font made national headlines with his 15 K effort.


AA Richmond Flying Squirrels topped the Akron Rubber Ducks 3-1:

Slade Heathcott CF- 2 for 4.  BA= .314.
Andrew Suarez LHP- 6.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 7 K's.  ERA= 3.12.
Tyler Cyr RHP- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's, Save(3).  ERA= 2.03.

Reyes Maronta pitched the 9'th so it looks like Cyr is the Closer for the Squirrels.


High A  Inland Empire 66'ers edged out the San Jose Giants 5-4:

Daniel Carbonell DH- 2 for 5, 2B.  BA= .269.
Ryan Howard SS- 2 for 4, SF.  BA= .310.
Bryan Reynolds CF- 2 for 5, 2B.  BA= .258.
Dillon Dobson 2B- 2 for 4.  BA= .284.
Heath Quinn RF- 1 for 4, 2B.  BA= .250.
Gio Brusa LF- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .200.

Heath Quinn makes his long-awaited 2017 season debut with an RBI double.


Low A Augusta Greenjackets smothered the Lexington Legends 2-1:

Dominic Mazza LHP- 7 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K's.  ERA= 4.95.
Patrick Ruotolo RHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, Save(3).  ERA= 1.98.


  1. Heathcott is batting .400 last 10 games, 40 ABs. He, Shaw, and Gomez are really flying squirrels!

  2. San Jose has an interesting lineup. If arenado and vizcaino wake up, they could have a potent 1-8.

  3. Thanks Doc again for your blog. One of the first sites I go to in the morning. Its a real treat for this displaced Giants fan. That said....Quinn is back!!! Reynolds and Brusa making more contact. Heathcott's emergence is lessening the blow of Duggar's injury. Giants have a lot of outfield prospects in the system. Had to look up Wilmer Font of the Dodgers because I thought " Man, don't tell me they have another young ace coming up.". I'll give him credit. He pitched great. But he is a 27 year old journeyman who pitched in the Canadian League last season, so I am not too worried. I was surprised to see how could Richmond's bullpen had been performing. Alvarado, Snelten, Moronta, Flores and Cyr ( With the exception of his first outing.) have been borderline dominate and putting together great seasons.

  4. Chris Shaw makes 6th straight start in LF and has 150 wRC+. That bodes well.
