Wednesday's Twins Minor League Daily

The Twins were swept by the White Sox. I didn't watch the game, but apparently this was ugly -- even by 2012 Twins standards. Luckily, there are other things on which to focus our attention, especially the Twins' affiliates. Let's take a look at the action down on the farm.

ROCHESTER 5, SYRACUSE 3
Esmerling Vasquez got the win for the Red Wings tonight, throwing 5 and 1/3 innings, and giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits, striking out 7 and walking 3. Luis Perdomo tossed the rest of the game, 3 and 2/3 innings, giving up only 2 hits and striking out 2 while walking 1.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

4 Red Wings players -- Tsuyoshi Nishioka, Chris Parmelee, Danny Valencia and Evan Bigley -- each had 2 hits. Valencia and Bigley each had doubles. Wilkin Ramirez and Ray Chang added singles. Valencia had his 7th error of the season.

NEW BRITAIN 11, BINGHAMTON 2
B.J. Hermsen earned his 7th win on the season for the Rock Cats, tossing 7 innings, giving up only 2 runs, striking out 8 and walking 3. Daniel Turpen and David Bromberg each pitched scoreless innings in relief.

On offense, this was Aaron Hicks' day. He was 5-for-6 and was just a triple shy of the cycle. He had 2 doubles, a home run (10th on the season), and 2 singles. He accumulated 10 total bases and 2 RBIs. Deibinson Romero quietly had 4 hits, including a double. Oswaldo Arcia, Chris Colabello, Joe Benson and Rene Tosoni each had 2 hits, and James Beresford had a single. Hicks now has a very respectable .284/.379/.456 line on the year.

FT. MYERS 12, CHARLOTTE 4
Matthew Hauser had an excellent outing, throwing 7 scoreless innings, and allowing only 2 hits. He struck out 4 and walked 4. Cole Nelson tossed 2 innings, and had a rough outing. He allowed 4 runs on 5 hits, including 2 home runs, and struck out 2.

Steven Liddle had 2 hits, including a home run, and 4 RBIs. Josmil Pinto was also 2-for-4 with a home run and a double. Daniel Rams, Anderson Hidalgo (3 RBIs) and Andy Leer each had 2 hits, as well. Jonathan Goncalves, Daniel Santana and Kyle Knudson each had 1 hit in this mass offensive effort. In fact, 8 of the 9 Miracle starters registered at least 1 hit.

BELOIT 4, BURLINGTON 1
Jason Wheeler picked up his 12th win of the season, throwing 6 scoreless innings. He allowed 4 hits , struck out 4 and walked 2. A great performance from one of Beloit's most reliable arms this season. Dallas Gallant threw 2/3 of an inning, allowing 1 run on 1 hit, striking out 1 and walking 2. Mason Melotakis finished the game, throwing 2 and 1/3 innings, giving up only 2 hits and striking out 3.

Matthew Koch was 2-for-4 with a double and a home run, and Nate Roberts also had 2 hits. TwinsDaily's own Adam Pettersen, Miguel Sano, JaDamion Williams and Tyler Grimes all had 1 hit. Sano walked 3 times, and also picked up his 70th RBI on the season. Sano also stole his 7th base of the season.

GCL TWINS 1, GCL RAYS 2
Felix Jorge was effective in 4 innings of work today, allowing only 2 hits, striking out 5 and walking just 1. Gerardo Ramirez picked up a tough loss, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits, and walking 2 along the way. Melciades De La Cruz tossed 3 scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits, striking out 1 and walking 1.

Bryan Haar was 2-for-4 with a pair of singles, and Byron Buxton, Eddie Rosario, Aderlin Mejia, John Murphy, Kelly Cross, and Zach Larson all singled. Buxton also had a center field-to-second base assist.
