Twins Minor League Report (4/8): May Has A Day

Weather has been a factor in the early part of the minor league schedule. Rochester was forced to play two seven-inning games on Tuesday because of weather issues on Monday. The Miracle had some weather issues of their own on Tuesday as their game got called early in the day.

For the coming weeks, it likely means there will be plenty of doubleheader action in the Twins system. The games have to get played but it has been a long winter in different parts of the country and it could take awhile for the weather to start cooperating. However, the weather did cooperate for a few of the Twins affiliates on Tuesday night...[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

Rochester 5, Scranton/WB 0 (7 Innings)
Box Score

Rochester picked up their first win of the season behind a strong pitching effort from Kris Johnson. In his Red Wings debut, Johnson tossed five scoreless frames for his first victory. He's held the RailRiders scoreless over three consecutive starts dating back to last season (17.0 IP). Ryan Pressly pitched the last two innings to complete the shutout.

Every hitter in the Rochester line-up had at least one hit and five different players knocked in runs. DH Darin Mastroianni did a good job out of the leadoff spot going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Eric Farris had a two-out RBI double for his first extra-base hit of the year.

Rochester 6, Scranton/WB 5 (7 Innings)
Box Score

In the Red Wings second game of the day, Trevor May made his Triple-A debut. May had a tough act to follow with Johnson's performance in Game 1 but his performance turned out to be fantastic. Over five solid innings, May struck out eight and maybe more importantly didn't walk a single batter. The lone run scored against May came after he gave up a leadoff triple in the top of the fifth inning. He ended the evening throwing 84 pitches, 51 for strikes.

Darin Mastroianni kept up his hot hitting from earlier in the day with three more hits in this contest. Brad Nelson went 2-for-2 with an RBI before being lifted for a pinch runner. Doug Bernier has only played in two games this season but he's made the most of them by getting multiple hits in both games.

New Britain 2, Harrisburg 6
Box Score

Sean Gilmartin got off to a rough start in his debut in the Twins system. The Senators pounced on him for three runs in the first inning and the Rock Cats were never able to recover. Gilmartin put up zeros in the second, third, and fourth innings before getting hit around again during the fifth. He lasted five frames and surrendered four earned runs.

Corey Wimberly had his second double of the season, while Brad Boyer and Mike Kvasnicka each collected two hits. Boyer stole his first base of the year but he also had a error in the field. The team didn't capitalize on some key moments as the club went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.

Fort Myers --, Charlotte -- (Postponed)

Inclement weather at Hammond Stadium meant the Miracle and the Stone Crabs will have to play a doubleheader on Wednesday. Game one will begin at 4:05 CST and the second game will be approximately 30 minutes after the first game with each game scheduled to last seven innings.

Cedar Rapids 4, Great Lakes 8
Box Score

Zach Larson did his best to keep the Kernels close but it wasn't enough as the team suffered their third loss of the year. Larson finished the day by going 3-for-4 with two doubles. Jeremias Pineda clocked his first home run of the year and stole his first base. Bryan Haar collected his second home run and, his second game in a row with an extra-base hit.

The Kernels pitching staff gave up eight runs on eleven hits with four walks. Felix Jorge made his first start out of the rookie leagues and struggled by giving up four runs on five hits including a home run. He struck out three and didn't walk a runner. Alex Muren did a good job cleaning things up by tossing 2.2 scoreless frames to end the game.
