Redbirds Just Shy in Wild, 11-Inning Affair

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds and Iowa Cubs (Cubs) locked in a wild game Thursday night at AutoZone Park, with the Cubs prevailing in 11 innings, 9-8.

The Redbirds (18-16) came back from a 4-0 deficit to tie the game, matched the Cubs (23-11) in the 10th inning with a run, and then nearly erased a four-run 11th-inning hole before coming up shy.

Rangel Ravelo tied the game in the sixth with his second opposite-field home run in two games, a two-run shot. He also had a double and an RBI single in the contest.

Jake Woodford tossed 5.0 innings and gave up only three hits, but two of them were two-run home runs to account for Iowa's regulation scoring. Hunter Cervenka, Ryan Helsley, Ryan Meisinger, and Tommy Layne finished the final four innings before extras in scoreless fashion, giving up just two hits.

Iowa plated a run on a balk in the top of the 10th, before Memphis answered back on a Drew Robinson sacrifice fly that sent the game to another extra frame.

The Cubs then scored four times in the top of the 11th, but the Redbirds did not go down quietly.

Ravelo knocked in a run with one out in the bottom of the 11th, and Joe Hudson then launched a pinch-hit two-run homer, his fifth of the year, to make it 9-8. But the final two Redbirds went down to wrap up the game.

Kramer Robertson made his Triple-A debut with a pinch-hit walk in the fifth inning. Andrew Knizner was 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored and has hits in 19-of-24 games this season.

Iowa has won nine of its last 10 games.


Springfield

DECISIONS:
W: LHP Austin Warner (1-2)
L: RHP Jace Vines (1-4)
S: RHP Seth Elledge (2)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:

- RHP Seth Elledge crushed a late Naturals rally, entering the game with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth inning and forcing a Travis Jones groundout to third to escape the jam and preserve the 7-4 score.

NOTABLES:

Chiefs Fall 4-1 Thursday

Quote:
The Peoria Chiefs dropped the opening game of a three-game series in South Bend 4-1 on Thursday night. The loss ends a two-game winning streak and drops the Chiefs to 15-16 on the season with two games left on the road trip.

The hosts jumped out to the lead in the second inning against Alvaro Seijas. Jonathan Sierra led off with a single and Tyler Durna was hit by a pitch. Andy Weber bunted for a single to load the bases and Sierra scored on a double play. Levi Jordan gave South Bend a 2-0 lead with a single to right before Seijas got out of the inning.

South Bend made it 3-0 with two singles and an error in the third inning before the Chiefs got on the board in the sixth. Ivan Herrera connected for a one-out double against starter Faustino Carrera. With two down, Jack Patterson came in out of the bullpen and Brady Whalen delivered a RBI single to cut the South Bend lead to 3-1. The hosts added another unearned run in the seventh for the 4-1 final score.

Seijas (1-4) took the loss as he allowed three runs, two earned, on eight hits over five innings while striking out two and hitting two. Freddy Pacheco allowed one unearned run on three hits over three hits over three innings while walking one and striking out four.

Memphis

Redbirds Rally, Come Up Short against Iowa

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (18-17) fell behind 7-0 to the Iowa Cubs (Cubs) Friday night at AutoZone Park, and despite scoring the next four runs came up short in the series finale, 7-4.

The first-place Cubs (24-11) picked up their 10th win in their last 11 games.

Genesis Cabrera struck out nine in 6.0 innings in a start, but he was hampered by allowing three first-inning runs and four more in the third. But after that, the left-hander kept the Cubs scoreless for his final 3.0 innings of work and retired eight of the final nine men he faced.

Memphis got on the board with three runs in the bottom of the sixth, as Drew Robinson picked up an RBI single before Tyler O'Neill added a two-run base hit of his own to make the score 7-3.

Carlos Martinez followed Cabrera out of the bullpen with his second injury rehabilitation appearance in Memphis, and he got two strikeouts in a quick seventh inning. He tossed nine-of-11 pitches for strikes.

Memphis got its fourth run in the bottom of the eighth, with pinch-hitter Adolis Garcia walking, moving to third on a Ramon Urias single, and scoring when Lane Thomas reached on an error on a ground ball to the right side.

After Martinez' outing, Chris Ellis and Chris Beck worked the last two innings in scoreless fashion to help the Redbirds keep Iowa at bay and set up the potential comeback.

But Memphis went down in order in the bottom of the ninth to seal the ballgame.

Six different Redbirds had one of the team's six hits in the game.


Springfield

Cardinals bats fall flat in 4-1 loss to Naturals

Quote:
The Springfield Cardinals (13-21) lost 4-1 on Friday night to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (13-20) in front of 5,846 fans at Hammons Field.

DECISIONS:
W: RHP Arnaldo Hernandez (1-0)
L: RHP Harold Arauz (0-3)
S: RHP Franco Terrero (2)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
- The two-run second-inning home run by Naturals 1B Travis Jones was all Northwest Arkansas would need in the game with Springfield being held off the board until plating a single runner in the bottom of the ninth.

- The Cardinals mounted a rally in the ninth after being shut down for the first eight innings, loading the bases with two outs when 1B Chris Chinea was hit on a 2-2 pitch. Next, PH Brian O'Keefe drove LF Justin Williams home on an infield single, but 3B Alberto Triunfel popped out to end the game.


NOTABLES:
- The Naturals win at Hammons Field is the first win by either Northwest Arkansas or Springfield at that opponent's home ballpark this season.

- C Jose Godoy led all Cardinals batters with a 2-for-4 night. Only three other Springfield batters managed a hit.

- Hernandez allowed just three hits and four walks over 7.0 innings for the Naturals, striking out six in his first Double-A start of 2019 after beginning the year with Triple-A Omaha.

- The teams combined to leave 38 runners on base, with Northwest Arkansas stranding 26.

Gorman Hits Birthday Homer, Chiefs Lose 5-2

Quote:
Third baseman Nolan Gorman celebrated his 19th birthday with his league-leading eighth homer but the Peoria Chiefs lost 5-2 on Friday night. The loss drops the Chiefs to 15-17 on the season with one game left on the road trip.

Down 1-0, the Chiefs grabbed their first lead of the series in the fourth inning against South Bend starter Riley Thompson. Delvin Perez singled to center and Gorman launched his eighth homer of the season to just under the videoboard in right-field. Gorman leads the MWL in homers and hit his first as a 19-year old after crushing 24 professional homers as an 18-year old.

South Bend tied the game in the fourth inning with a two-out rally against Jacob Schlesener. JD Artis was hit by a pitch and moved to third on a pickoff error. Artis scored on a bunt single and South Bend left the bases loaded as Franyel Casadilla came out of the bullpen to strikeout Jon Sierra.

The hosts took the lead in the sixth inning with a double and two groundout against Casadilla. They plated two more for a 5-2 lead in the seventh as Fabian Blanco walked four of the five batters he faced and two runs scored on wild pitches.

Schlesener allowed two runs on two hits over 3 2/3 innings as he walked seven, hit one and struck out two. Casadilla allowed one run on two hits over 2 1/3 innings while walking one and striking out three. Blanco allowed two runs on four walks, one strikeout and no hits over 1/3 of an inning. Sisk threw 1 2/3 shutout innings and allowed two hits.

Memphis

Redbirds Take Opener from Nashville, 7-5

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (19-17) scored the first seven runs of the game and finished off a 7-5 win over the Nashville Sounds (Rangers) in the series opener Saturday night at AutoZone Park.

Each Redbird reached base at least once, and five different players had two of the club's 12 hits in the game.

Daniel Ponce de Leon moved to 3-1 on the season with 5.0 innings of work, allowing just two hits and two runs, one earned. He struck out three and walked five.

The Redbirds did not play their crispest game of the season, walking nine and committing three errors, but they did enough to pick up the victory. After Ponce de Leon, Ryan Meisinger came in and gave up three runs in 2.0 innings, but a pair of errors behind him made all three of his runs unearned.

Hunter Cervenka and Chris Beck hurled the final two frames and polished off the win. Beck stranded the bases loaded to end the contest.

Three different Redbirds had an RBI in the second inning, with John Nogowski, Ramon Urias, and Drew Robinson plating runs to open the scoring.

Tyler O'Neill and Andrew Knizner homered in the third and fourth innings, respectively, with both bombs being their fourth of the year. O'Neill scored three runs and stole a base, adding a walk and a single to his home run.

Former Redbird All-Star Patrick Wisdom played his first game back at AutoZone Park since being traded to the Texas Rangers, and he was presented his Triple-A National Championship ring before the game.


Springfield

Mieses grand slam, Capel walk-off cap dramatic 6-5 Cardinals win

Quote:
A Johan Mieses grand slam followed by a Conner Capel walk-off single sent the Springfield Cardinals (14-21) home 6-5 winners in dramatic fashion over the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (13-21) on Saturday night at Hammons Field.

DECISIONS:
W: RHP Ronnie Williams (1-0)
L: RHP Grant Gavin (0-1)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
- Capel's bases-loaded walk-off single was the game-winning hit, but it was Mieses's pinch-hit grand slam that pulled the Cardinals even at 5-5 after going seven innings without scoring a run.

- Cardinals DH Randy Arozarena put Springfield up 1-0 with an RBI double in the first, but the Naturals responded with four runs in the top of the second on a pair of RBI doubles by Kort Peterson and Nick Heath and an RBI triple by Khalil Lee. That 4-1 lead eventually turned into 5-1 and stood until the big final inning.

NOTABLES:
- Oviedo allowed five earned runs over 5.0 innings in his first Hammons Field start, striking out four and allowing six hits and five walks.

- The walk-off was the fourth of the year for the Cardinals against the Naturals.

- Springfield relievers Hector Mendoza and Ronnie Williams combined for 4.0 scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out seven.

Memphis

O'Neill Homers Again in 7-2 Redbirds Win

Quote:
For the second-straight day the Memphis Redbirds (20-17) had seven runs on 12 hits leading to a victory over the Nashville Sounds (Rangers), this time 7-2 Sunday afternoon at AutoZone Park.

Tyler O'Neill went deep for the fifth time in nine games with the Redbirds this season, and all five of his home runs have come against the Sounds (12-24). Rangel Ravelo was 3-for-4 with two RBI, extending his hitting streak to five games. He is hitting .500 (10-20) during the stretch. Ramon Urias extended his hitting streak to eight games by going 1-for-3 with a run.

Anthony Shew started and worked 2.1 innings for Memphis before having to leave after taking a comebacker off the arm. He was followed by Ryan Helsley, Tommy Layne, Carlos Martinez, and Chasen Shreve, who combined to work the final 6.2 innings in scoreless fashion.

Martinez, making his third injury rehab appearance with Memphis, tossed 1.2 innings and struck out three. He walked two and hit a batter. The right-hander has only allowed one hit in 3.2 innings with the Redbirds, striking out six and walking four.

Memphis pitching struck out 11 Sounds, with Helsley picking up his first win of the season.

In addition to O'Neill's home run and Ravelo and Urias extending their hitting streaks, Drew Robinson and Lane Thomas both had two hits. Robinson has driven in a run in four-straight games. Adolis Garcia scored twice and had an RBI.

The Redbirds struck out only once at the plate.


Springfield

Perez allows just 2 hits, Cardinals beat Naturals 5-2

Quote:
The Springfield Cardinals (15-21) won their second straight series with a 5-2 win over the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (13-22) on Sunday afternoon at Hammons Field.

DECISIONS:
W: RHP Williams Perez (4-1)
L: RHP Ofreidy Gomez (1-3)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
- The first Double-A home run for Cardinals SS Jose Martinez put Springfield ahead for good at 2-1 in the bottom of the fifth.

- While the Cardinals never gave up the lead after the Martinez homer, the three runs Springfield put up in the sixth were a key cushion with the Naturals putting up a second run in the eighth. It was an RBI double by C Jose Godoy that made it 3-1 Cardinals before he was driven home on a double by 3B Evan Mendoza for a 4-1 lead. Mendoza soon scored on a Martinez sacrifice fly.

NOTABLES:
- Perez allowed just two hits and one earned run over 7.0 innings, striking out six to just two walks. Over his past five starts, Perez has allowed just eight runs over 32.0 innings, including just one run on three hits over his last two starts (13.0 IP).

- The Cardinals have won six of their last seven and have now won back-to-back series for the first time since April 23-30, 2018 (ARK, NWA).

- Cardinals RF Johan Mieses (2-for-3), Mendoza (2-for-4) and 2B Alberto Triunfel (2-for-4) all posted multi-hit games. No one on the Naturals had more than one hit.

Memphis

Redbirds Falter in 5-3 Loss to Nashville

Quote:
Tommy Edman was 3-for-5 with a home run, Andrew Knizner had two doubles, and Lane Thomas tripled, but the Nashville Sounds (Rangers) topped the Memphis Redbirds Monday afternoon at AutoZone Park, 5-3.

Despite that extra-base success, the Redbirds (20-18) were 2-for-15 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base. With a 3-1 lead in the third inning, Memphis left a runner on third base in the third-through-sixth innings and a runner on second in the seventh and eighth.

Austin Gomber matched a season high with eight strikeouts in 7.0 strong innings on the mound. He scattered seven hits, but one was a two-run home run that tied the game at 3 in the fifth. Gomber struck out the side in the fourth and sixth innings, and he needed only 10 pitches to turn the trick in the fourth.

Nashville (13-24) took a 4-3 lead in the eighth inning without a hit, as Delino DeShields walked, went to second on a sacrifice bunt, stole third, and then scored on a sac fly.

The Sounds added another run in the ninth via a leadoff home run to widen the gap to 5-3. The Redbirds went down in order in the bottom of the ninth to end the ballgame.

Rangel Ravelo's hitting streak moved to six games with a 1-for-3 showing. Ramon Urias' eight-game streak ended, but he did reach base on an error and score a run.

Palm Beach takes series opener from Tampa

Quote:
Palm Beach carried it's momentum from a recent 4-2 road trip back to Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in a 4-3 series opening victory over the Tampa Tarpons.

Palm Beach got on the board in the first inning when Scott Hurst smacked a opposite-field home run that hit the foul pole.

It would remain a 1-0 game through the sixth when Angel Rondon allowed his only run of the night. Tampa's Welfrin Mateo hit a home run far over the left field fence to knot the game up at one.

Rondon finished the night with seven innings pitched, allowing just that one run on two hits while striking out seven. Rondon lowered his season ERA to 2.04 through 39 2/3 innings and has allowed opposing hitters to just a .142 batting average against.

The Cardinals scored three runs in the home half of the seventh inning to take a commanding 4-1 lead. Luken Baker got the frame started with a deep double and was moved to third on Julio Rodriguez's single. Yariel Gonzalez drove home Baker on an RBI double and Rodriguez would move to third. After two shallow pop outs to first base, Rayder Ascanio came up in the clutch with a two out, two RBI single.

Tampa scored two more runs in the eighth to cut the defecit to just one run. With the tying run on first base, Ben Yokley induced an inning-ending groundout.

Yokley returned to the mound in the ninth and allowed a hit but was able to work around the runner en route to his second save of the young season.

Hurst and Gonzalez both had two hits for Palm Beach with six different hitters recording a base hit.

Angel Rondon has now gone four straight starts pitching 5+ innings, allowing two or less runs, and striking out at least four batters. After allowing 16 walks over his first 32 2/3 innings pitched, the 21-year-old did not walk a single batter in his seven innings on the hill during Monday's win.

Chiefs Split DH Against Beloit

Quote:
The Peoria Chiefs split the doubleheader with the Beloit Snappers, falling 2-1 in game one and winning 2-0 in game two on Monday. The split moves the Chiefs to 16-18 on the season as they prepare for game three of this five-game series Tuesday at 6:35 p.m.

After a scoreless first inning for both teams, Beloit got on the board in the top of the second against Chiefs starter Kyle Leahy. Logan Farrar and Anthony Churlin started with back-to-back singles and with one out Devin Foyle singled to score Farrar for the 1-0 lead. Skyler Weber singled in the next at-bat to score Churlin from second to increase the lead to 2-0.

The Chiefs cut into the deficit with a run in the bottom of the fourth against Beloit starter Aiden McIntyre. Nolan Gorman was the first Chief to reach base when he was hit by a pitch with one out in the bottom of the fourth. Brendan Donovan got the Chiefs first hit of the day with a two-out double to score Gorman and cut the deficit to 2-1. Leandro Cedeno singled to put runners at the corners but the Snappers were able to work out of the jam to keep their lead.

Leahy (1-3) took the loss after pitching 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on eight hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Thomas St. Clair pitched a perfect 1 2/3 innings with four strikeouts.

The Chiefs broke the scoreless tie in game two in the bottom of the third against Beloit starter Adam Reuss. Josh Shaw singled to start the inning and Wadye Ynfante reached on a fielding error to put runners on first and second. Shaw was thrown out attempting to steal third, Ynfante advanced to second and scored on an infield pop-up by Ivan Herrera that fell out of the reach of Cooper Goldby for the 1-0 lead. Gorman walked to put runners on first and second and Herrera scored on the single by Cedeno to put the Chiefs up 2-0.

The Snappers got the tying run in scoring position in the top of the seventh with two outs, but Sebastian Tabata struck out Churlin to secure the Chiefs win.

Mike Brettell took the no decision, pitching 3 1/3 shutout innings, allowing three hits with two walks and three strikeouts. Edgar Escobar (1-0) got his first win of the season, pitching 2 1/3 shutout innings allowing only one walk and striking out four. Tabata got his second save of the season, pitching the final 1 1/3 innings

Cardinals 3B prospect Nolan Gorman went 2-for-3 with a homer and a steal on Tuesday for Low-A Peoria.

Gorman has his ninth homer of the season, and the steal is the second on the year for the 19-year-old. The 19th pick of the 2018 draft, Gorman is hitting "only" .267 on the year, but his .378 on-base percentage and .578 slugging mark are more indicative of his talent. Gorman has quickly moved himself up the third base prospect ranks, and he has a chance to be a middle-of-the-order hitter for the Cardinals before the end of 2021.

Redbirds Mash Way to 9-3 Win over Nashville

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (21-18) cranked four home runs in a 9-3 win over the Nashville Sounds (Rangers) Tuesday afternoon at AutoZone Park to take the series three games to one.

Rangel Ravelo, Tyler O'Neill, Drew Robinson, and John Nogowski all went deep for the Redbirds to account for eight of the team's nine runs. Tommy Edman had an RBI single in the seventh for the other tally on the day.

Jake Woodford went 7.0 strong shutout innings for the Redbirds, allowing just five hits, and he struck out six and walked two. He fanned two in the first, fourth, and seventh frames. He moves to 3-0 with the win, and his ERA now sits at 1.74.

The game was scoreless until Ravelo's fourth-inning home run, with the two-run shot extending his hitting streak to seven games. He has homered in three of the seven games.

O'Neill launched his sixth bomb of the year in the sixth inning in his 11th game played with the Redbirds. All six of his home runs for Memphis have come against Nashville. The Redbirds added three more in the seventh to take a 6-1 lead, with Robinson providing the big blow with a two-run shot to deep right field.

Nashville (13-25) scored its first run in the top of the eighth off Memphis reliever Jesus Cruz, but the Redbirds added three more in the home-half on Nogowski's fourth long ball of the campaign.

The Sounds plated two in the top of the ninth, but Chris Beck retired the final two hitters of the game to finish things up.

Although he was the only Redbird not to reach base in the game, Andrew Knizner caught a runner stealing in the top of the first inning.

The Chiefs got on the board in the bottom of the first against Snappers starter Chase Cohen. Delvin Perez led off with a single and Nolan Gorman walked to put runners on first and second. After a successful double steal, Perez scored on a sac fly from Ivan Herrera for the 1-0 lead.

The Chiefs fell behind 3-1 as Cole Aker walked two and allowed two doubles in the third. The Chiefs regained the lead in the bottom of the inning. Perez led off with a walk and Gorman tied the game at three with a two-run homerun, his ninth of the season which leads the Midwest League. Herrera drew a walk but was thrown out at second on a fielder's choice and Brady Whalen reached first. With two outs, Leandro Cedeno doubled to score Whalen to push the Chiefs ahead 4-3.

Beloit went right to work tying the game at four in the top of the fourth. With one out, John Jones hit his third homerun of the season before Franyel Casadilla retired the next two hitters to keep the game tied.

The game continued to go back and forth as the Chiefs regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth. With one out Perez doubled and scored on a triple by Gorman who was sent home by manager Erick Almonte in an attempt at an inside-the-park home run but he was thrown out.

The Snappers tied the game in the top of the eighth against Freddy Pacheco. Beloit loaded the bases with two walks and a single before tying the game with another walk.

Neither team scored in the ninth or 10th. Beloit won the game in the 11th as ghost runner Marcos Brito scored on a 6-4-3 double play for a 6-5 lead.

Chiefs Split DH in Front of Sellout Crowd

Quote:
In front of the biggest Dozer Park crowd (7,837) in two years, Alvaro Seijas pitched the first complete game and shutout of his career as the Peoria Chiefs split the Wednesday double header falling 2-1 in game one and winning 6-0 in game two against the Beloit Snappers. The shutout is the Chiefs' seventh of the season which ties them for the league lead with Quad Cities as they improve to 17-20 on the season.

In game one, the Snappers broke the tie in the top of the fourth against Chiefs starter Diego Cordero. Beloit loaded the bases with no outs and Cooper Goldby singled home two runs for the 2-0 lead.
