Just one minor league game today

A and AA leagues are off on Mondays, and the Rangers ACL game was canceled, I assume due to inclement weather, and thus we have just a single game to update you on.

Wes Benjamin started for Round Rock and gave up two runs on three hits in 2.1 IP, throwing 36 of 48 pitches for strikes and recording one K. Chris Woodward said after Benjamin was sent down this last time that they want to get him innings. I’m guessing he was on a 50 pitch limit today, with that increasing as he gets stretched back out.

Jacob Lemoine allowed two runs in two innings of work, striking out two. Jimmy Herget threw two scoreless. Leody Taveras and Jason Martin each homered.
