Friday's Twins Minor League Daily

Where I live, I only watch the Twins on TV when they play the Yankees, Mets or Red Sox. Last night, though I missed seeing the comeback! It was definitely great to hear that both Morneau and Carroll had 4 hits -- Morneau, especially. Let's take a look at how the affiliates performed last night.

Also, sorry this is late -- my internet was down this morning!

ROCHESTER 3, TOLEDO 1
Shairon Martis had a very solid start for the Red Wings, going 7 innings, allowing only 1 run on 3 hits, striking out 8 and walking 2. Bobby Lanigan pitched the remaining 2 innings, striking out 2.

Chris Parmelee and Rene Rivera (both with 3 hits including a double) led the way on offense. Matt Carson was 2-for-4 with a double, Eduardo Escobaro had 2 singles in 5 trips to the plate, and Evan Bigley and Brian Dinkelman each singled.

Here's the link to the box score.

NEW BRITAIN 5, ALTOONA 4
Aaron Thompson went 6 innings, giving up 1 run on 5 hits. He struck out 3 and walked 3. The Altoona offense got to the bullpen, though, as David Bromberg gave up 2 runs in 1 inning of work, allowing 2 hits and walking 3. Bruce Pugh also tossed 2 innings, giving up 1 run on 3 hits, striking out 1 and walking 1.

5 Rock Cats players had 2 hits apiece tonight: Aaron Hicks (inc. a double); Chris Herrmann; Chris Colabello (inc. a home run); Daniel Rohlfing (inc. a double); Nathan Hanson (inc. a home run). Deibinson Romero added a single, and James Beresford doubled. Colabello's home run -- a 3-run walk-off, nonetheless -- was his 17th, and he had 3 RBIs, giving him an impressive 80 on the season.

Here's the link to the box score.

FT. MYERS 0, ST. LUCIE 6
Matthew Summers went 3 innings in his start, giving up 7 hits a 5 runs (3 earned), striking out 3 and walking 2. He allowed 3 home runs. Clint Dempster threw 3 and 2/3 innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 run. He walked 2 and struck out 3. He allowed a home run, as well. A.J. Achter tossed 1 and 1/3 scoreless innings, giving up 2 hits and striking out 2.

Offense was at a premium for the Miracle. Anderson Hidalgo doubled in 4 at-bats, and Daniel Santana and Andy Leer each singled.

Here's the linkto the box score.

BELOIT 8, KANE COUNTY 1
I'm sure Seth and Jeremy will have a much more detailed recap, but here's the basic rundown. Matt Tomshaw had a great start, going 7 innings, allowing only 1 run on 3 hits, striking out 5 and walking 1. Dallas Gallant tossed a scoreless innings, striking out 1, and Corey Kimes also threw a scoreless frame, allowing 2 hits.

There were a bunch of hits for the Snappers tonight. Stephen Wickens was 3-for-4 with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs. Then there were a bunch of singles: Eddie Rosario (3); Miguel Sano (2) and 2 RBIs; Nate Roberts (2); JaDamion Williams (2); Jairo Rodriguez (2); Drew Leachman (1). In addition to Sano's RBIs, Rosario, Leachman, Wickens and Rodriguez all drove in at least 1.

Here's the link to the box score.

GCL TWINS 4, GCL RED SOX 5
This is a game where the score truly doesn't matter. Andrew Albers, on a rehab assignment, went 2 and 2/3 innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits, striking out 1 and walking 3. Kyle Gibson threw 1 and 1/3 innings, allowing 1 hit and striking out 1. Randy Rosario threw 3 innings, allowing 1 unearned run on 2 hits, striking out 4 and walking 4. Trent Higginbottham went 1 and 1/3 innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned) on 1 hit, striking out 1 and walking 2.

Byron Buxton was 1-for-2 with a single and 2 RBIs and a walk. Jose Ramirez had 2 singles in 5 at-bats, and Derek Rodriguez and Logan Wade each added singles, as well. The Twins walked 9 times today, which is nice to see. They also struck out 9 times.
