Box Score

The Cedar Rapids Kernels season ended one win shy of participating in the Midwest League championship series. Congratulations to first-year manager Brian Dinkelman and his coaching staff.

Brian Dinkelman sent RHP Tyler Palm to the mound to start, it was all hands on deck for the Kernels in the win or go home game.

Unfortunately, Palm didn’t get through the first inning. He got two outs, but he was removed having given up three runs on three hits and a walk. Lefty Denny Bentley came on and gave the team length. He was able to work three scoreless innings and gave up just two hits. Jose Martinez got two outs but was charged with one run. Nate Hadley recorded five outs and gave up just one hit. JT Perez came on for the top of the seventh inning. He was charged with two unearned runs. Austin Schulfer worked the final two innings

Tyler Webb continued to hit in the playoffs for the Kernels. His fifth inning single drove in a run and cut the Kernels deficit to 4-2 at the time. Webb went 10-for-17 (.588). On the other side of the spectrum, Matt Wallner went 0-for-24 with 10 strikeouts in the six Kernels playoff games.

Wander Javier had a single and two doubles in the game as well. Jared Akins and Trevor Casanova each had a double for the Kernels as well.

...too soon Seth.Too soon.

Was that Javier's best game with the bat this season?And after such a great summer with the bat, Wallner went 0-24 in six playoff games.That sure didn't help.

 

Since the Twins moved from Beloit to Cedar Rapids, it seemed nearly every year the Kernels lineup was filled with well known top prospects.When I looked at their roster this year, those type of prospects just weren't there.Considering this team made it to the semi-finals says that both management and the players on the field had one hell of a season.Congrats.

 

And a last big thank you to you and the rest of your group at TD for bringing us this information every day.

I always feel sad when the minor league season ends. Too soon indeed! But at least this year we have the Twins in the major league playoffs (knock on wood) to either enjoy or suffer through.
