Twins Minor League Report (6/15): A Mostly Quiet Night in the Land of the Minors

One team sent their players to participate in all-star festivities and two games were suspended due to rain, leaving just one game played in full. How that game went and how the Miracle players performed in the Florida State League All-Star Game in this edition of the minor league report.

Rochester suspended vs Charlotte

The bats came out early in this game but it mattered not as the rain decided to come out as well and the game was suspended in the bottom of the third. The game will be continued tomorrow as the first game of a doubleheader.

Pensacola 1, Tennessee 2
Box Score

Jorge Alcala: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 66.3% strikes (53 of 80 pitches)
HR: None
Multi-hit games: Jaylin Davis (2-for-3, 2B, RBI, BB)

The Blue Wahoos lost a close 2-1 game Saturday in the only game that was actually played in full in the Twins’ system.

Jorge Alcala had a middling start but his strike rate indicates that he may have gotten unlucky in his walk and strikeout totals. Alcala was picked up by Adam Bray and Sam Clay who combined for 3 2/3 scoreless innings in relief with four combined strikeouts, two combined hits allowed, and no walks given up.

The Blue Wahoos offense was largely stagnant all game as they could only put together six hits total and just a pair of extra-base hits. Jaylin Davis was the bright spot as he reached base three times and hit one of those aforementioned extra-base hits.

There was no Miracle game today because it was the all-star weekend for the Florida State League. The Miracle had four hitters in the starting lineup for the FSL South all-star squad along with two pitchers that entered the game.

Lewin Diaz did not get a hit but started the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the first, Trevor Larnach went 1-for-2 with a single, Ryan Jeffers went 0-for-3, and Royce Lewis went 0-for-3. Johan Quezada and Alex Phillips combined for three scoreless innings to end the game and Phillips received the save. Here’s the box score if you care to read it.

But that was not all as Ryan Jeffers participated in the home run derby before the game and made it to the finals but unfortunately did not win. Here is some footage of Jeffers hitting dingers, hopefully any fans in left field had some helmets:

Cedar Rapids suspended vs Clinton

The Kernels started their game against the Clinton Lumberkings but Mother Nature had other plans and the rain started to fall after only a full inning was played. The game will be continued tomorrow as the first part of a doubleheader.

The Florida State League all-star game...2-0 with a total of eight hits between the two teams along with 20 K’s and 2 BB. Seems fitting. Lewis batted 9th and went 0-3, but didn’t K, and handled 4 chances cleanly at short. Larnach and Diaz were busy in the field as well, with Larnach charged with one error. Jeffers DH’d.

Burlington won last night, putting the Kernel's 1.5 games back.The Kernel's will need to win the suspended game, they are up 2-0 early, and also win the scheduled game.But that won't be enough unless Burlington loses putting them into a tie.The Kernel's have the first tie breaker, head-to-head play, thus would sneak into the playoffs.Considering their really cold start, that would be a great achievement.


The DSL Twins lost yesterday, 2-1, to the Phillies Red.Urbina led off, going 0-3 with a walk and rbi.


We are rapidly approaching June 25.My offseason Christmas wish is that Brusdar Graterol, Alex Kirilloff and Yunior Severino are all playing on that day!
