Twins Minor League Report (4/28): Duffey Does it Again

It was bound to happen. The four Twins full-season minor league affiliates had all won each of the past three days. That’s a 12-0 record. On Sunday, that streak was broken as only two of the affiliates won. That said, all four games were decided by two runs or fewer. There is some very good baseball being played in the Twins farm system.

Speaking of very good baseball, the Minnesota Twins are back over .500 again after a 5-0 win over the Texas Rangers. Kevin Correia continued his impressive April with the Twins. On Sunday, he worked eight shutout innings to lower his ERA to 2.23. The team now begins a ten-game road trip.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

Rochester Red Wings 3, Buffalo Bisons 5

Box Score

Evan Bigley had every right to be disappointed when he learned he would be sent back to New Britain to start the 2013 season. Fortunately, just weeks into the season, he was promoted to Rochester. After going 3-4 on Sunday, he is now hitting .394 through his first 11 games with the Red Wings. Chris Herrmann went 2-4. He is hitting .250 on the season, but in his last seven games he is hitting .379. Ray Olmedo went 1-3 with two walks.

Liam Hendriks was back on the mound for the Red Wings. He gave up five runs (3 earned) on eight hits in five innings. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out two. Tyler Robertson struck out two over two scoreless innings. Dan Turpen went the final two innings and gave up only one hit.

New Britain Rock Cats 2, Richmond Flying Squirrels 4

Box Score

Lefty Pat Dean started for the Rock Cats and things went well early. In the first he gave up a leadoff single, then he struck out the next three batters. However, he gave up three runs on eight hits in five innings to take the loss. He walked none and struck out four. AJ Achter came on and gave up one run on three hits and a walk over the next two innings. Aaron Thompson threw two scoreless innings.

Danny Santana went 2-4 with his second double and his second stolen base. Dan Rohlfing went 2-4.

Ft. Myers Miracle 8, Clearwater Thrashers 7

Box Score

The Miracle jumped to a 7-0 lead after scoring five runs in the top of the 7th. They got an insurance run in the top of the ninth which provided the winning margin when Clearwater got within one run in the bottom of the 9th.

Taylor Rogers made the start for the Miracle. The lefty gave up the first two runs in the 7th inning, but he was still on the mound when the 9th inning started. He gave up a leadoff double and left the game. The runner came around to score which gave him a final line of three runs on six hits in eight innings. He walked none and struck out just one. Adrian Salcedo had replaced him and gave up four runs on four hits in the ninth. He struck out two.

Eddie Rosario went 2-4 with a walk, his sixth double and his second stolen base. His third home run of the year came in the ninth and proved to be a very important run. Angel Morales went 2-4 and got the Miracle on the scoreboard early with his first home run of the season. Miguel Sano went 2-5 with his first triple (which was nearly his tenth home run). His OPS is now 1.16. He also stole his second base. Kyle Knudson went 2-4. Kennys Vargas hit his seventh double.

Cedar Rapids Kernels 4, Lansing Lugnuts 3

Box Score

Tyler Duffey was back on the mound for his fourth start of the year, all four on Sundays. He improved to 3-1 with eight strong innings. He gave up three runs on seven hits. He walked none and struck out four. Tyler Jones registered his third save with two strikeouts in a perfect ninth.

Jorge Polanco went 3-4. After his walk-off, pinch-hit “single” last night Travis Harrison was back in the lineup on Sunday and went 2-3 with his ninth double. DJ Hicks drove in a run with an 8th inning single to give the Kernels the lead.

A LOOK AHEAD to Monday

Rochester will play at 6:35 against Buffalo. If you have MLB Network, you can watch Virgil Vasquez take the mound. Trevor May will take the mound for New Britain when they play Harrisburg. After having a start pushed back due to illness, Tom Stuifbergen returns to action for the Miracle when they play again at Clearwater. J.O. Berrios will make his second start for Cedar Rapids against the Lansing Lugnuts.
