Memphis

Redbirds Walked Off at San Antonio

Quote:
The San Antonio Missions (Brewers) scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth to walk off the Memphis Redbirds (21-19) in the series opener Thursday night in San Antonio, Texas, 4-3.

Memphis trailed 1-0 and 2-1 before rallying with a pair of runs in the top of the sixth. The bullpen locked down in the sixth-through-eighth innings, but the Missions (23-17) capitalized in their last at-bat to take the win.

Tommy Edman had an RBI single in the top of the third to tie the game at 1, before San Antonio scored in the bottom of the fifth to take a 2-1 advantage. Tyler O'Neill and Adolis Garcia proceeded to go deep in the top of the sixth to give Memphis a 3-2 lead.

It was O'Neill's seventh home run in 12 games played for the Redbirds, and Garcia's long ball was his 10th of the year.

After taking the one-run lead, the Redbirds pitching staff took over. Genesis Cabrera came back after his offense gave him the lead and retired the Missions in order in the bottom of the sixth, which was his last inning of work. The left-hander finished with a quality start, allowing only two runs on eight hits in 6.0 innings. He struck out four and walked one.

After Cabrera, Ryan Helsley retired all five San Antonio hitters he faced in the seventh and eighth innings, and Ryan Meisinger got the final out of the eighth.

Tommy Layne entered with a one-run lead in the bottom of the ninth and got a quick groundout, before two walks and a hit loaded the bases with two outs. Tyler Saladino then doubled home a pair to give San Antonio the victory.

A win would have been Memphis' fourth in the last five games.

Rangel Ravelo went 3-for-4, extending his hitting streak to eight games. He has four multi-hit games during the stretch, three of which are three-hit performances. He has hits in his last 11 games with an official at-bat, raising his batting average from .165 to .281.

-After the Naturals scored one run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the eighth, Godoy dealt the final blow with a two-run double in the top of the ninth.

Palm Beach

Offensive explosion leads to Cardinals' seventh straight victory

Quote:
After not scoring a run through the first three innings for the fourth straight games, the Cardinals' made up for that drought exploding for nine runs over the next four innings in a 9-1 victory over Bradenton.

The Cardinals put up a five spot in the fourth inning which was started by Luken Baker's second homer of the season, a two-run shot. Later in the frame with two outs, Nick Dunn hit a double and was followed by a Lars Nootbaar RBI single. The left fielder moved to third on Rayder Ascanio's infield single and scored on Justin Toerner's RBI single immediately after. Zach Kirtley then hit home the fifth run of the frame in Ascanio who scored on his single.

Palm Beach wasn't done as it put up two more runs in the fifth on a single from Nootbaar. After going 1-7 in his first two games after a promotion from Peoria, Nootbaar went 2-4 on Friday and recorded 2 RBI.

Starter Tommy Parsons pitched against Bradenton last weekend and saw the same success on Friday. The righty threw five shutout innings while striking out six and walking just one while sending six back to the dugout after punchouts.

In the eighth, the Cardinals gave up a solo run snapping a 26 1/3 consecutive scoreless streak dating back to the ninth inning of Tuesday's game. In that same inning, right fielder Justin Toerner committed just his second error in 792 career innings played.

Four players (Toerner, Kirtley, Dunn, Nootbaar) recorded multi-hit games and three (Hurst, Baker, Nootbaar) recorded multi-RBi games.

With the victory combined with a Ft. Myers loss, the Cardinals (24-16) moved back into sole possesion of the South Division and have the best record in the Florida State League through 40 games.

Palm Beach loss snaps seven game streak

Quote:
Palm Beach showed some signs of life throughout Saturday's game however were unable to complete the comeback, eventually falling to Bradenton 6-4.

Cardinals' pitcher Angel Rondon was scheduled to start the game but was promoted to Double-A Springfield before the series. Reliever Zach Prendergast filled in that vacant rotation spot as a spot start. While manager Dann Bilardello would have hoped to get a longer outing from the 24-year-old, Prendergast lasted just 1/3 of an inning after walking four and allowing three earned runs.

Patrick Dayton came in and threw 3 1/2 scoreless innings and was followed by Mitchell Osnowitz who threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings of his own.

Facing a 3-0 deficit heading into the third inning, Palm Beach scored a single run in the third on a Zach Kirtley RBI double and another lone run in the fourth on a Nick Dunn double, cutting the Bradenton lead to just one.

The visiting Marauders rallied for three more runs in the sixth to make it a 6-2 game.

Once again, Palm Beach would not go down with a fight and with two runs already home in the eighth, had the tying run at the plate but were unable to capitalize.

Zach Kirtley and Michael Perri both had multi-hit games.

Memphis

Redbirds Blanked 4-0 at San Antonio

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (21-23) went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base on Monday in San Antonio, falling 4-0 in the series finale against the Missions (Brewers).

Rangel Ravelo went 1-for-4 on the day, extending his hitting streak to 15 games. He is batting .472 (26x55) during that span.

Ravelo was also the last Redbird to record a hit in 15-straight games when he had a 16-game stretch last season from July 24 - Aug. 24, 2018.

Ryan Meisinger did not allow an earned run in his three innings of work in the start and struck out the side to begin the game. He finished his outing with six punch-outs.

Meisinger has not allowed an earned run in his last 13.2 innings of work, making nine appearances and two starts during that span.

San Antonio (27-17) gained some breathing room in the seventh with a two-out, two-run home run from Tyler Saladino to cap off a three-run frame.

Edmundo Sosa had the Redbirds lone extra-base hit in the contest with a double in the sixth.

Tommy Edman and Drew Robinson each had a stolen base on the day. They have combined for a perfect 12-for-12 on stolen base attempts this season.

Lane Thomas added an outfield assist, throwing out a runner at 3rd base to prevent a run from scoring on a sacrifice-fly chance.

Today marks the first time that the Redbirds have been swept in five games by an opponent since July 21-23, 2006 at Iowa in a series that included two doubleheaders.

Three runs in the top of the seventh inning propelled the Memphis Redbirds (22-23) to a 4-2 win over the Nashville Sounds (Rangers) Tuesday night in Nashville, Tenn., which ended Memphis' five-game losing streak.

Rangel Ravelo was 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored, and an RBI, extending his hitting streak to 16 games. He owns three of the 15-longest hitting streaks in Redbirds history and is four shy of tying the franchise record.

Seven Redbirds had at least one of Memphis' nine hits in the game.

Genesis Cabrera got the win with 6.0 innings of two-run baseball, allowing only four hits. He struck out six and walked only one. He fired 55-of-90 pitches for strikes.

After falling behind 1-0 after three innings, the Redbirds tied the game in the top of the fourth when John Nogowski singled home Ravelo, who doubled to start the inning.

The Sounds then took a 2-1 lead in the fifth and kept their lead through six innings before the Redbirds put up a three-spot to take the lead for good.

Tommy Edman tied the game with an RBI double that scored Kramer Robertson, Lane Thomas singled home Edman, and Ravelo provided another run with a knock to left field that plated Thomas and gave Memphis a 4-2 advantage.

The Redbirds' bullpen locked down after that, with Dominic Leone, Jesus Cruz, and Chris Beck retiring all nine Sounds they faced to finish the game. The trio struck out five Nashville hitters. Beck earned his fourth save of the year by closing out the victory.

Drew Robinson swiped two bases in the game to give him nine on the year, and Max Schrock and Thomas also stole bases.

Nashville (17-27) only had two at-bats with runners in scoring position.


Springfield

Drillers score 2 in 9th, Cardinals lose 3-2

Quote:
The Springfield Cardinals (18-27) let a 2-1 lead slip away in the ninth inning on Tuesday night in a 3-2 loss to the Tulsa Drillers (23-21) at Hammons Field in front of 4,501 fans.

DECISIONS:
W: RHP Marshall Kasowski (3-2)
L: RHP Kodi Whitley (0-2)
S: RHP Shea Spitzbarth (2)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:

- What briefly looked like a miraculous game-saving diving catch by Cardinals RF Randy Arozarena ended up being a game-winning two run double by Drillers 1B Jared Walker. The two-out rip into the gap in right came on an 0-2 pitch with two outs.

- Cardinals CF Dylan Carlson mashed his eighth homer of the year to deep center field in the bottom of the sixth, ending Drillers RHP Dustin May's shutout and putting Springfield up 2-1.

NOTABLES:
- Cardinals RHP Johan Oviedo posted the best start of his Double-A career, allowing just a single run over 5.0 innings, striking out six to three hits and four walks on 95 pitches.

- RHP Junior Fernandez continued to shut down batters in relief, striking out five over 2.0 scoreless innings and lowering his ERA to 1.38 over eight appearances.

- Drillers SS Gavin Lux led off the game with a home run.

This Irving Lopez kid in Springfield should play some MLB. He's essentially a non prospect, but I could easily see him as a new Descalso.

He keeps showing up in the box score doesn't he? You never know how a player might develop or come out of nowhere.

Memphis

Redbirds Wallop Nashville, 10-0

Quote:
Tyler O'Neill, Kramer Robertson, and Tommy Edman all homered and combined for eight hits and all 10 Memphis RBI, and Rangel Ravelo extended his hitting streak to 17 games in a 10-0 Memphis Redbirds (23-23) thumping of the Nashville Sounds (Rangers) Wednesday night in Nashville, Tenn.

Edman finished 3-for-5 with his fifth home run of the season, a walk, and four RBI, and O'Neill cracked his eighth home run in 15 games with the Redbirds. Seven of those home runs have come against Nashville. Robertson added his first Triple-A home run, a three-run shot in the fourth inning after O'Neill's blast in the third. Edman's long ball also plated three.

Ravelo singled in the eighth inning, his final at-bat of the night, to move his hitting streak to 17 games. He is three shy of tying the franchise record. During his streak, Ravelo is hitting .468 (29-62).

Daniel Ponce de Leon moved to 4-2 on the season after tossing 5.0 shutout innings, allowing just three hits. He struck out six and walked three. Chris Ellis, Hunter Cervenka, and Chasen Shreve finished the game with 4.0 shutout innings.

Ponce de Leon has won 10 of his last 14 decisions at the Triple-A level.

John Nogowski was 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored, and Andrew Knizner, Ramon Urias, and Robertson also scored twice.

O'Neill jumped right on Nashville (17-28) in the top of the first, singling home the game's first run, and he homered in the third. Robertson's three-run blast in the fourth made it 5-0, and Edman's three-run shot ahead of an O'Neill RBI double blew the game open at 9-0.

Edman added his fourth RBI in the seventh with a single to right field that plated Nogowski.

Cervenka got a double play to end the seventh inning, worked a perfect eighth, and then gave the ball to Shreve who tossed a 1-2-3 ninth to dash any hopes of a Nashville comeback.

Three of Memphis' five highest-scoring games of the season have come against the Sounds.


Springfield

Cardinals collapse in 9th, lose 9-7 to Drillers

Quote:
A 7-3 ninth-inning lead disappeared on the Springfield Cardinals (18-28) on Wednesday at Hammons Field, losing 9-7 to the Tulsa Drillers (24-21) in front of 3,189 fans.

DECISIONS:
W: LHP Chris Nunn (1-1)
L: RHP Merandy Gonzalez (1-2)
S: RHP Shea Spitzbarth (3)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:

- Zach McKinstry's three-run home run off Gonzalez with one out in the ninth put the Drillers ahead 8-7 and completed the all-too-quick comeback win for the visitors. The ninth inning started out in the same fashion, with Carlos Rincon taking Gonzalez deep to leadoff the inning. Four batters later, Gavin Lux singled home a run that cut the Cardinals lead to 7-5. McKinstry's homer immediately followed, and then Angelo Mora made it back-to-back home runs and cemented the 9-7 final.

- After Tulsa had cut a 6-1 Cardinals lead to 6-3 with two runs in the eighth, 2B Irving Lopez pushed what appeared to be an insurance run across the plate in the bottom of the eighth that extended the lead to 7-3.

- Tulsa's late push actually started in the top of the eighth with back-to-back home runs by DJ Peters and Lux, who finished 4-for-5.

NOTABLES:
- Cardinals RHP Williams Perez had an excellent start and exited the game with a 7-1 lead, seemingly in line for what would have been his fifth win. Perez allowed just a single run over 7.0 innings, striking out eight to five hits and two walks on 95 pitches.

- The Cardinals bullpen allowed eight runs on eight hits over the game's final 2.0 innings. Of the four relievers who entered the game after Perez exited, only Ronnie Williams (0.2 IP, 1 K) didn't allow a run.

- LF Randy Arozarena hit his first home run of 2019, doubled and singled in a 3-for-5 day. RF Johan Mieses and 3B Elehuris Montero also went yard.

Peoria

Chiefs Lose in Wisconsin 7-2 Wednesday

Quote:
The Peoria Chiefs committed two costly errors in a four-run fifth inning and lost to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 7-2 Wednesday night. The loss drops the Chiefs to 19-26 on the season with one game left in the series.

For the sixth game in a row, one team scored in the first inning of a Chiefs game and Wednesday it was the hosts. Brice Turang singled to center off Colin Schmid and David Fry doubled over the shift with one out. Turang scored on a fielders' choice as he slid past Alexis Wilson's tag and Fry came home on a sacrifice fly as Wisconsin took a 2-0 lead.

The Chiefs got on the board in the fourth against Aaron Ashby. Brady Whalen made it to second for a double as his pop up landed between three Rattlers in right-center. With two outs, Malcom Nunez picked up his fifth RBI of the season with a single to center before Ashby got out of the inning.

Wisconsin broke the game open with plenty of help from the Chiefs in the fifth. With one out, Wadye Ynfante dropped a fly ball in right-center for a two-base error and Kory Howell drew a walk. Turang hit a fly ball to right that Ynfante trapped while diving for the catch and one run scored for a 3-1 lead. With runners on the corners, Connor McVey bunted and two runs scored when Whalen threw wild to first base where nobody was covering. With the Chiefs out of position on the shift, Fry singled home the final run of the inning for a 6-1 Wisconsin lead. The Rattlers added a run on two hits and double play groundout in the seventh.

The Chiefs scored the final run of the game in the eighth when Brendan Donovan hit a solo homer to right, his third of the season. Peoria then grounded into their MWL-leading 35th double play.

Schmid (1-1) took the loss allowing seven runs, five earned, on a career-high nine hits. He walked one and struck out five while tossing 97 pitches and picking off one runner. Evan Sisk allowed an inherited runner to score on one hit over two innings as he struck out two.
