Twins Minor League Report (9/6): Red Wings Drop Game 3

After the Ft. Myers Miracle and Cedar Rapids Kernels lost their playoff series in recent days, this Minor League Report is now basically just a Rochester Red Wings Report. It will be that way for at least one more day. The Red Wings lost 5-1 on Friday night in Pawtucket to fall behind 2-1 in the best of five series against the Red Sox affiliate.

After seeing top prospect Anthony Ranaudo in Game 1 and Clay Buchholz in Game 2, the Red Wings faced knuckleballer Steven Wright in Game 3. The Red Wings got plenty of offense. They had nine hits in the game and walked five times, but unfortunately were not able to come up with a big hit and scored just one.

Ray Olmedo went 2-4 with a double and drove in the lone run of the night for Rochester. Aaron Hicks was also 2-4 and had a double. Eric Farris was 2-3. James Beresford continued his hot hitting. He was 2-4 with a walk. Chris Parmelee walked twice, but went 0-3 with three strikeouts.

Lefty Pat Dan made the start for the Red Wings. In five innings, he gave up four runs (3 earned). He allowed eight hits, walked one and struck one out.

Then Trevor May came in to make his AAA debut, and according to Josh Whetzel, his first relief appearance since the 2010 season. In his first inning, he pitched a scoreless inning despite two errors behind him. In three total innings, he gave up one run on three hits and a walk. He struck out three.

What's Next?

The Red Wings and Paw Sox will play Game 4 in Pawtucket on Saturday night. Scott Diamond will oppose Matt Barnes. Diamond went 4-0 with a 2.41 ERA with the Red Wings. Matt Barnes made 24 starts for the Red Sox AA affiliate in Portland before ending his season with one start with Pawtucket. On the season, he is 48 walks and 142 strikeouts in 113.1 innings pitched. The Red Wings must win to force a Game 5 and continue their season.
