Around the Farm: May 28
May 29, 2011
Tyler Sturdevant-RP, Kinston: W (3), 4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
Sturdevant took over for Jones and ultimately kept the team in the game long enough for the offense to put up a three spot. He went four scoreless and was rewarded with an offensive comeback that earned him his third win of the season. Sturdevant has been excellent in relief this season and the four inning outing was probably the most Kinston has asked of him this season. Other than a blemish earlier this month in which he gave up three runs, Sturdevant has been excellent. He's gone 29+ innings and given up five earned runs. He's struck out 30 hitters and walked just six.
- Jeanmar Gomez-SP, Columbus: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 6 K: Gomez must see what Zach McAllister is doing and realize he may no longer be the next in line to receive a call up to Cleveland as he's been on fire the past two starts. He did walk three, but Gomez went at least seven innings for the second straight game.
- Jerad Head-RF, Columbus: 2-4, 2B, RBI, BB: Head had the best game for Columbus last night, not only getting on base three times, but knocked in their lone run scored. Head now has five two-hit games in his last seven.
- Jared Goedert-DH, Columbus: 0-5, 2 K: Recently moved to Columbus in his rehab assignment, Goedert made his debut last night. It was a little rough.
- Nick Hagadone-RP, Columbus: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K: Just like in Akron, Nick Hagadone is off to a great start with the Clippers. Hagadone was great against Norfolk, collecting strikeouts as four of his six outs and walking just a hitter in two scoreless.
- Jordan Henry-CF, Akron: 1-4, BB, SB: Jordan Henry stole his team-leading 16th base and was on two times last night.
- Tim Fedroff-LF, Akron: 0-4, K: And the 20-game hit streak has come to an end for Tim Fedroff. It was a remarkable effort, but all streaks must come to an end. It was the longest in the Eastern League this year.
- Kelvin De La Cruz-SP, Akron: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 4 BB, 4 K: You have to wonder if DLC is having some control issues, as he's walked 32 hitters this year and it's only the end of May and he's made just nine starts. De La Cruz's effort was good enough to win, but he'll remain at 3-3 on the season.
- C.C. Lee-RP, Akron: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K: The strikeout machine C.C. Lee continues to rack 'em up. Lee now has 40 in 28 innings of work.
- Bo Greenwell-RF, Kinston: 2-4, R, 2B, RBI: Bo Greenwell powered the big three-run seventh inning that led the K-Tribe to a win. The team only had four hits on the evening, but Greenwell had two of them.
- Adam Abraham-3B, Kinston: 1-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K: Adam Abraham's two-run home run in the second innings responded to a two-spot the Dash put up earlier in the frame. It was also his sixth of the season.
- Delvi Cid-LF, Kinston: 0-2, R, 2 BB, SB: Cid was hitless, but got on base twice via the walk and stole a base and scored a run. Good to see Cid getting his wheels back.
- Toru Murata-SP, Kinston: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K: Murata left his start after just two outs recorded with a arm injury. He gave way to Chris Jones, who gave up two runs.
- Tyler Sturdevant-RP, Kinston: W (3), 4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K: Sturdevant took over for Jones and ultimately kept the team in the game long enough for the offense to put up a three spot. He went four scoreless and was rewarded with an offensive comeback that earned him his third win of the season.
- Preston Guilmet-RP, Kinston: S (11), 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K: Guilmet came in and notched his 11th save of the season.
- Alex Monsalve-C, Lake County: 2-3, R: Monsalve was mired in a 1-21 skid in his past few games. He broke out of that with a multi-game hit and a run scored.
- Anthony Gallas-LF, Lake County: 2-3, K: Gallas continues to rake, boosting his average up to .354 and extended his hit-streak to 11-games.
- Steven Wright-SP, Lake County: 4 IP, 6 H, 5 R (1 ER), 2 BB, 3 K: Returning from his spot-stint in Columbus, Wright got the start and was the victim of some shoddy infield work. He gave up five runs, but just one turned out to be earned and it led to a early exit for the Knuckleballer and his first loss this season.
- J.D. Reichenbach-RP, Lake County: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K: Reichenbach tried to save things, going three scoreless, but the Captains couldn't muster any runs. JD didn't walk a hitter and struck out one.
