Minor League Recap - 6/19/07

Triple A - Las Vegas lost 8-2

Delwyn Young - 0 for 4

Eric Stults lost his 5th, snapping the 51's brief 3 game win streak. Stults allowed 4 runs in 3 innings and didnt get much help from the pen. Harold Eckert relieved him and gave up 2 runs in 3 innings. Casey Hoorelbeke and Matt White allowed runs in their frames. The only pitcher who didnt give up a run was BJ LaMura. Delwyn Young's 6 game hit streak came to an end. Andy LaRoche appears to be battling injury, as he's played just 3 games in the past week. Vegas hosts Colorado Springs again tomorrow at 7:11pm.

Double A - Jacksonville was suspended due to rain; will be resumed tomorrow

High A - Inland Empire is on their All Star Break

The California League All Star team beat the Carolina League All Star team 10=5. 66ers' righthander James McDonald picked up the win for the Cal League All Stars, pitching a perfect 2nd inning with a strikeout. Lucas May singled once in 4 at bats.

Low A - Great Lakes is still on their All Star Break; the Midwest League All Star game was played today

Loons lefty Clayton Kershaw allowed a walk and a solo HR in an inning of work, but recorded 2 strikeouts and the win for the East team. Francisco Lizarraga went 1 for 2, while Eduardo Perez was 1 for 3.

Rookie League - Ogden won 4-3

Brian Matthews - 2 for 4, HR (1), RBI, R, 2 K's, SB
Kenley Jansen - 0 for 4, K
Jaime Ortiz - 0 for 4, RBI, 2 K's

Paul Koss - 1.2 IP, 4 Hits, ER, 0 BB, K

It was an uneventful debut for Ogden, prospect-wise. Only 1 2007 draftee made an appearance: Paul Koss, who closed out the game and earned his first professional save. Brian Matthews had a nice game, homering in the 6th inning. Kenlsey Jansen went hitless after being demoted from Low A. Paul Coleman started the game and pitched well, allowing just 2 hits and a walk over 5 scoreless innings. Ogden plays again in Orem tomorrow at 6:05pm.

Rookie Ball - GCL Dodgers won 16-10

Pedro Baez - 3 for 6, 2B, 3B, RBI, 3 R, K
Kyle Orr - 2 for 5, HR (1), 2 RBI, 2 R, K
Yosanddy Garcia - 2 for 5, 2 HR (2), 5 RBI, 2 R, K

Carlos Alvarez - 1 IP, 0 Hits, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K's

An extremely exciting game kicked off the Dodgers' GCL season. Midget southpaw Carlos Alvarez, apparently rehabbing from an injury, started the game and struck out the side in the 1st after being given a 2-0 lead. The Dodgers scored 5 more times in the next 4 innings to take a 7-3 lead into the 6th. 2006 4th rounder Kyle Orr homered in his 2nd professional at bat, a 2 run shot to center field in the 3rd. Lefty Jon Dutton came in for Alvarez and worked 4 innings, allowing 3 runs. But the lead was lost when Mario Garcia replaced Dutton and allowed 5 runs in his only frame. Luis Garcia allowed another pair in the 7th and the Dodgers fell behind 10-7. But the Dodgers made a miraculous comeback in the 9th. Johan Garcia led off with a walk and Joseph Becker forced him out at 2nd. Then back to back doubles by Lyndon Poole and Pedro Baez produced 2 runs to cut the lead to 10-9. Keyter Collado walked and a pitching change preceded an error on a force attempt that could have ended the game, instead tying it at 10-10. Kyle Orr followed with a single which brought up Yosanddy Garcia. Garcia had already homered to lead off the 2nd inning and with the bases loaded, he hit a grand slam to give the Dodgers the lead. 2 more runs would score on a 2 out double and that would be the game. What an exciting beginning to hopefully an enjoyable season in the GCL.
