Wednesday's Twins Minor League Daily

I'll be honest -- I was a little disappointed with the trade deadline. Aside from dealing Liriano, no big moves, no small moves. But if the offers weren't there, then they weren't there. But this is certainly a tough time to be a Twins fan! If you're reading this, though, you realize that there are other things to focus on besides the action/inaction at Target Field. So let's take a look at how the #futuretwins did tonight.

ROCHESTER (OFF)

NEW BRITAIN 3, BOWIE 11
A rough one for the Rock Cats. Logan Darnell had a tough start, lasting only 3 innings and giving up 5 runs on 8 hits, striking out 1 and walking 2. David Bromberg tossed 2 innings, giving up 1 run on 3 hits, striking out 5 and walking 1. Edgar Ibarra lasted 1 and 2/3 innings, surrendering 3 runs on 3 hits, striking out 2 and walking 3. Finally, Marty Popham went 1 and 1/3 inning, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 1. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

Unfortunately, the offense couldn't keep pace. Chris Herrmann led the way, going 3-for-5 with his 8th home run and 2 RBIs. Joe Benson doubled and walked in 3 at-bats, and Aaron Hicks, Deibinson Romero and Rene Tosoni all singled.

This was an ugly game. There were 3 Rock Cats errors tonight. I'm not going to name names, but they rhyme with Sherrmann, Nicks, and Feresford.

Here's the link to the box score.


FT. MYERS 1, DAYTONA 2
Madison Boer turned in a very good start for the Miracle, going 6 innings and giving up just 1 run on 6 hits, striking out 4 and walking 3. Ricky Bowen tossed an inning in relief and gave up 1 run on 1 hit, striking out 1 and walking 2. Michael Tonkin pitched a scoreless inning, striking out 3 and giving up 1 hit.

Daniel Santana and Josmil Pinto each had 2 hits, including a double, and Lance Ray doubled in 3 at-bats. Pinto was responsible for plating the Miracle's lone run, and also walked. Santana stole his 14th base of the season.

BELOIT 8, KANE COUNTY 6
Taylor Rogers started for the Snappers, and went 5 innings, giving up 5 runs (only 2 earned) on 4 hits, striking out 5 and walking 1. Tim Atherton came on in relief, and threw 1 and 2/3 innings, allowing 1 run on 2 hits, walking 1. Mason Melotakis lasted 2/3 of an inning, giving up 2 hits and 2 walks, striking out 1 along the way. Finally, Zachary Jones threw 1 and 2/3 innings, allowing no hits and striking out 3.

On offense, tonight was about two of the top Twins prospects. Miguel Sano was 2-for-5 with a double, a home run, and 5 RBIs. He now has 20 doubles, 21 home runs and 81 RBIs. Eddie Rosario was 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI. Nate Roberts had a great game, as well, going 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and 2 runs scored. Tyler Grimes was 2-for-4 with a triple. Kenny Vargas doubled and walked in 3 at-bats, and Stephen Wickens and JaDamion Williams each had singles.

Notably, these young prospects are not perfect. Rosario had 2 errors, and Sano and Atherton each had 1.

ELIZABETHTON 3, BURLINGTON 2
This was a pitchers' duel, to be sure. Ricardo Arevalo started for E-Town and went 4 innings, surrendering 1 run on 1 hit, walking 5 and striking out 3. Despite the walks, the lone run came on a solo homer. Luis Nunez threw 2 scoreless innings, giving up 2 hits and striking out 2. J.T. Chargois also tossed 2 innings, giving up 1 run on 2 hits, striking out 3. Christian Powell threw a scoreless 9th and 10th innings, allowing 1 hit and striking out 2. Tyler Duffey tossed a scoreless 11th, striking out 1.

There wasn't much offense to speak of tonight for E-Town. Through the first 10 innings, this is what happened: Joshua Hendriks doubled, and Candido Pimentel, Niko Goodrum, and Michael Quesada singled. Jorge Polanco doubled and singled. Polanco and Goodrum had RBIs, and Quesada and Kelvin Mention walked. In the home half of the 11th, Adam Walker led off with a triple, and 3 batters later, Quesada drove him in with a game-winning, walk-off single. An exciting way to end the game!

GULF COAST TWINS 2, GULF COAST ORIOLES 3
Felix Jorge started for the Twins today, and went 3 and 2/3 scoreless innings. He gave up 2 hits, and struck out 3 and walked 2. In relief, Andre Martinez threw 2 innings, and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits, walking 1. Alexander Muren tossed 2 and 1/3 innings, giving up 1 run on 4 hits, striking out 1.

Aderlin Mejia led the offense today, going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI, and is batting .341 on the season. John Murphy, Jose Ramirez, Kelly Cross, Zach Larson and Will Hurt all singled.
