Twins Minor League Report (9/8): Red Wings Season Ends (7 players recalled)

The Red Wings had not been to the playoffs since 2006. This afternoon in Pawtucket, their season ended with a Game 5 loss in the International League playoffs. Pawtucket scored three runs on four, two-out hits in the second inning, and that was about it for the offense.

Virgil Vasquez got the start in Game 5 as there was not a day off in the series. He threw a shutout inning before getting the first two batters of the second inning out. He went three innings and gave up the three runs on four hits. He didn't walk anyone and struck out three.

Logan Darnell came on and threw 3.2 scoreless innings, giving up just two hits. He walked none and struck out two. Shairon Martis got the final four outs.

The offense did very little, and they did not come up with a big hit in the 6th inning. Knuckleballer Charlie Haeger was still in the game after five shutout innings. However, the top of the order came up. Antoan Richardson singled. James Beresford was hit by a pitch. Eduardo Escobar had an infield single to load the bases with nobody out. Haeger was able to strike out Jeff Clement before he was replaced by Chris Martin. Chris Parmelee came off the bench to pinch hit for Deibinson Romero, and he struck out. Aaron Hicks flew out to center to end the inning.

After scoring nine runs on Saturday, the Red Wings managed just four hits on Sunday afternoon.

Box Score

Following the game, the Twins recalled Michael Tonkin, Chris Parmelee, Cole De Vries, Scott Diamond and Eduardo Escobar. In some surprise, they also will add RHP Shairon Martis and catcher Eric Fryer to the 40 man roster for September. Martis has big league time with the Pirates and Nationals. Fryer played a handful of games with Pittsburgh last year. To make room for Martis and Fryer, the Twins announced that Wilkin Ramirez and Sam Deduno have been moved to the 60 Day Disabled List.
