Last Day of the Minor League Season Report

The Twins and White Sox are playing the lone game in the big leagues on Labor Day evening. The Twins minor league affiliates that played on Monday all had afternoon games, with one exception. The Elizabethton Twins are playing tonight for the Appalachian League championship. The results of that game will be available here at Twins Daily upon its completion. The Rock Cats had a small chance of making the playoffs. Miguel Sano hit a very nice milestone. The Red Wings were able to meet an impressive win total as well.

There was plenty to play for in the final day of the season. Here is a look at the Twins minor league scores and highlights from Monday: [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
ROCHESTER 6, SYRACUSE 4


The Red Wings ended their season with a win which gives them a record of 72-72. Following the last two seasons, a .500 record is quite something! Shairon Martis started and worked the first three innings. He gave up three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five. Luis Perdomo gave up one run on one hit in 1.1 innings. Anthony Slama got the final out for his 14th save of the season and the 100th save of his minor league career.

Tsuyoshi Nishioka went 2-4 with his 18th double. Brian Dozier was 2-4 with his second home run. Wilkin Ramirez was 2-4 with his 18th double. Clete Thomas was 2-4 with his 22nd double.

NEW BRITAIN 8, NEW HAMPSHIRE 5


The Rock Cats came into this game knowing that no matter what they did, if Reading won, they would be out of the playoffs. Their hope was that they would win and Reading would lose to Portland. That would have meant a one-game playoff between the two teams for the final spot in the Eastern League playoffs. Unfortunately, late in the game, Reading completed a 7-3 win over Portland pushing the Rock Cats out of the playoffs.

The Rock Cats certainly came to play on this day. James Beresford went 4-5. Oswaldo Arcia went 2-5 with his 10th home run. Aaron Hicks was 1-3 with two walks. Shawn Roof went 2-3 with his third double. Josmil Pinto was 1-3 with a walk and his fourth double. Chris Herrmann hit his 25th double.

Logan Darnell made the start. The left won for the 11th time this season. He gave up four runs on nine hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out one. Dakota Watts threw two scoreless innings. He gave up one hit, walked one and struckout one. Jose Gonzalez pitched a scoreless inning. Edgar Ibarra gave up one run on one hit in his inning.

BELOIT 6, QUAD CITIES 1


David Hurlbut evened his record at 6-6 with the win. He worked the first five innings and gave up one run on four hits. He didn’t allow a walk and struckout three. Cole Johnson gave up two hits in a scoreless inning. Taylor Rogers then threw two shutout frames. Zach Jones gave up a hit, but he struck out three in his scoreless inning.

Matt Koch led the offense. He went 3-4 with his 23rd double. Drew Leachman went 2-4. Wang-Wei Lin went 2-4 with a three-run, inside-the-park home run. It was his fourth homer of the year. Finally, Miguel Sano was 1-3. He knocked his 28th home run, a solo homer that gave up 100 RBI on the season.
