Twins Minor League Report (7/7): Summers Breezes

I have returned from Cedar Rapids, havin had a great weekend which will likely be documented here at Twins Daily in a couple stories. I hope also to provide more encouragement for Twins fans to make that trek to east central Iowa. On Sunday afternoon, a Twins affiliate received one of their best starting pitching performances of the season. A new member of the organization also made a very good impression in his third game with his new AAA team.

Here’s a look at what happened in the Twins' farm system on Sunday:
[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
Rochester Red Wings 12, Pawtucket Red Sox 7
Box Score

Jermaine Mitchell came to the Red Wings this past week after being let go by the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. On Sunday, he made a pretty strong impression. The outfielder went 3-4 with his sixth home run. He scored three runs and had four RBI. Brian Dinkelman was 2-3 with his ninth double. Doug Bernier was 2-5 with his fourth triple. Antoan Richardson and Chris Herrmann each had two hits.

Vance Worley improved to 6-3 with Rochester. He gave up three runs on six hits. He walked three and struck out four in six innings. AJ Achter came on for his AAA debut and gave up four runs on four hits and three walks in 1.1 innings. He struck out one. Cody Eppley replaced him and got the final five outs, three on strikeouts.

New Britain Rock Cats 3, Portland Sea Dogs 4

Box Score

Tom Stuifbergen made the start and threw well. He gave up two runs on four hits in six innings. He walked two and struck out four. Bruce Pugh came on and gave up two runs on two hits and two walks in 1.2 innings. Dakota Watts came on and gave up a hit before getting the final out.

Josmil Pinto went 2-3. Reynaldo Rodriguez was 2-4. Eddie Rosario hit his sixth Rock Cats double.

Ft. Myers Miracle 3, St. Lucie 0

Box Score

What a terrific start for righty Matt Summers. In Port St. Lucie, he pitched his best game of the year. He gave up two hits in a complete game shutout. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out seven to drop his ERA with the Miracle to 3.20.

Mike Kvasnicka remains hot. He went 2-3 with his fifth double. Levi Michael has been playing well of late; he went 2-5 in this game. Byron Buxton was put in the 3-hole of the lineup for the first time this year and went 1-4.

Cedar Rapids Kernels 3, Clinton LumberKings 5

Box Score

The Kernels made the trek back to Clinton on Sunday afternoon. Mason Melotakis started and gave up five runs (4 earned) on eight hits and two walks. He didn’t record a single strikeout. Hudson Boyd’s third relief appearance was good. He struck out two over two, one-hit innings. David Hurlbut returned from the disabled list to work a scoreless inning, striking out one. He had been out for about a month with a lat injury.

Adam Walker went 2-4 with his 18th double. Tyler Grimes was 2-3 and he was hit by a pitch. Joel Licon (2nd) and Jorge Polanco (22nd) also doubled.
