Saturday's Twins Minor League Daily

The Twins are currently throttling the Indians. It's nice to see. Josh Willingham continues to demonstrate that he was an excellent off-season signing, and Alexi Casilla even got in on the action. Let's take a look at the action down on the farm.

ROCHESTER 5, COLUMBUS 8
Liam Hendriks had a bad start. In 5 innings of work, he allowed 12 hits, 7 runs (6 earned), walked 3, struckout 1, and allowed a homer. Daniel Turpen allowed an unearned run in 1 and 1/3 innings on 3 walks and a strikeout, and Caleb Thielbar threw 1 and 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing 1 hit and 1 walk, striking out 3.

Right fielder Matt Carson led the way on offense, hitting 2 home runs and a single, and driving in 4. Sean Burroughs had 2 doubles, Brian Dinkelman had 2 hits, including a double, and Chris Parmelee and Clete Thomas each singled.

Here's the link to the box score.

NEW BRITAIN 4, READING 5 (GAME 1 -- 7 innings)
Steven Hirshfeld took the loss for the Rock Cats tonight. He went 5 and 1/3 innings, gave up 5 runs on 9 hits, and struck out 3 while walking 1. Thereafter, Jose Gonzalez walked the only batter he faced, and Marty Popham tossed 2/3 of an inning, allowing 1 hit.

Oswaldo Arcia, Chris Colabello and Joe Benson each had 2 hits, Benson with a double and Colabello with his 14th home run of the season. Deibinson Romero was 1-for-3 with 2 RBIs, and James Beresford had a single in 2 at-bats.

NEW BRITAIN 0, READING 6 (GAME 2 -- 7 innings)
Aaron Thompson had a solid start, up until the 6th inning, anyway, but the offense didn't come through. In 5 and 1/3 innings, Thompson gave up 6 runs on 8 hits, striking out 6 and walking 2. Thompson had allowed 2 runs through 5 innings, but ran into trouble in the 6th inning, allowing a triple, sacrifice fly, a walk, a home run and a double before being replaced in favor of David Bromberg. Bromberg allowed 2 hits (and 1 inherited runner to score) in 2/3 of an inning, striking out 1.

There were only 5 hits in this second game, a double by Daniel Rohlfing, and singles by Joe Benson, Rene Tosoni and Shawn Roof (2 for Roof). Benson, by the way, has now hit safely in his past 5 games.

FT. MYERS 0, BREVARD COUNTY 3
Pat Dean went 4 innings in his start today, giving up 2 runs on 8 hits. He struck out 2 and walked 2. Ryan O'Rourke allowed an unearned run in 2 innings of work, allowing 2 hits and striking out 3. Ricky Bowen was very good today, throwing 3 innings and allowing only 1 hit.

There wasn't very much Miracle offense to speak of tonight -- only 4 total hits. Daniel Ortiz doubled in 3 at-bats, and Kyle Knudson, Lance Ray and Michael Gonzales all singled.

BELOIT 10, PEORIA 4
Tyler Jones was on the rubber for the Snappers tonight. He went 6 and 1/3 innings, allowing 4 runs (only 2 earned) on 5 hits. He struck out 11 and walked 2. Tim Atherton threw 1 and 2/3 innings, striking out 1 and walking 1. Zack Jones threw a scoreless 9th, walking 1 and striking out 1.

First baseman Kenny Vargas had a great game. He was 2-for-4 with a home run and a triple. He drove in 4 runs, and also walked once. Wang-Wei Lin was 2-for-5 with a double, Stephen Wickens doubled in 3 at-bats, and Nate Roberts, Drew Leachman, Miguel Sano, Matthew Koch and Jairo Rodriguez all singled.
