Twins Minor League Report (7/28): A Good Day In The System

Deibinson Romero and Chris Parmelee led the offense tonight, each homering. Eduardo Escobar delivered 2 doubles. The Red Wings offense delivered 15 hits. A good night!

Virgil Vasquez turned in a quality start, going 6 innings and giving up 2 runs on 4 hits, striking out 4 and walking 1. Shairon Martis went the other 3 innings, giving up a run on 2 hits.

Here's the link to the box score.

Miguel Sano returned to the lineup after a . . . hiatus, we'll call it.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK] He helped the Rock Cats end an ugly losing streak. He was 1-for-3 with 2 RBI, 2 K's, and 2 BB's. For my take on Sano's suspension, click here. Eddie Rosario hit his third AA homer and his 12th double, leading the offense.

Kyle Davies earned his first Rock Cats win, giving 7 innings of 1-run baseball. Dakota Watts and Jose Gonzalez finished the game.

Sano was back after a brief "naptime."

The Miracle had only 6 hits tonight, and they fell just short. Number 1 prospect Byron Buxton led the way with a homer and a single, and is batting .277 since his promotion. J.D. Williams also had 2 RBI's on a double.

Taylor Rogers took the loss for Ft. Myers, giving up 4 earned runs in 6 innings of work. He struck out 3 and issued 0 walks. Adrian Salcedo and Manuel Soliman turned in scoreless performances.

Left fielder Jeremias Pineda led the way with a double and 2 RBI today. Max Kepler, playing first base, had 2 singles and an RBI. Jonathan Murphy and Travis Harrison also had hits.

The real story was Mason Melotakis, who tossed 8 innings, gave up 1 unearned run, struck out 7 and walked none. What a good night for him! Madison Boer picked up his 7th save, allowing 1 hit and striking out 1.

Here's the link to the box score.


Dereck Rodriguez and Bryan Haar each had 2 hits for the E-Town Twins, and Ryan Walker, Romy Jimenez, Kelvin Ortiz and Mitch Garver all singled. But there just wasn't enough offense tonight.

Tanner Mendonca got the start, going 4 innings and giving up 1 run. He walked 5, though. Ryan Eades tossed 2 perfect innings. Brandon Bixler also threw 2 innings, giving up 1 walk, but striking out 2. Brandon Peterson was very good tonight, tossing 3 innings. He gave up 4 hits, but struck out 3. Finally, Andre Martinez gave up 2 runs on a walk and a hit in 2/3 of an inning.
