Minors 8/7: Something to really cheer

Since the bats were silent and that game sucked let's turn our eyes toward the positives going on down in the minors tonight.  A very nice group of pitchers are on the mound and well

 

Down in Clinton Quintero had a solid start:

6ip, 6h, 2er, 0bb, 2k

and uberly loved catcher C. Santana was 3-3, with a HR and 2 RBI.  Oh, and J. Ortiz had another solid inning in relief, for his 3rd save of the season and a line of 16g, 21ip, 12h, 6r, 4er, 0hr, 10bb, 16k and 1.71era.  Not bad for a 17 yo in full season ball.

Reclamation project Zach Parker, formerly of the Rockies,  6ip,  3h, 0r, 1bb, 6k for the Roughriders.  Beau Jones had another perfect inning of relief, as did Laughter.

Vallejo was 3-5 and don't look now but Manny Pina was 2-4 and now sporting a .304 average in AA.

Neil Ramirez went 2ip, 0h, 0r, 1bb, 3k for Spokane.  He was followed up by another great outing by Z favorite Wilfredo Boscan 3ip, 1h, 0r, 0bb, 5k.  This pitching by committee thing seems to be working in Western Washington.

O'Campo not doing so well in AZ, though the four Ranger errors may be the cause of his struggles.  4ip, 4h, 5r, 2er, 2bb, 5k.  The rooks are down four nothing in the 5th.

And in the other late game the Blaze in Lancaster where pitchers go to die, Greg Swanson is on the mound.  His line so far: 3ip, 7h, 3er, 1k.

So it appears more is going right down on the farm tonight than in Arlington.  Oh and David Murphy, get healthy soon.  4th outfielder my ass.
