Okay, so I'm going to start linking things in these recaps... when I find news articles and posts worth recommending. I'll start by recommending this post from Stephen Hamel, who runs Connecticuit Tiger Den. It's a quick look at Edwin Gomez, a 2009 4th rounder. He's been doing this with a bunch of players in EST, so go check it out for some of the youngest guys.
Onto the recaps!
Phil Dumatrait was pretty solid in this one- 5.2 innings with 2 runs allowed on 4 hits (including a homer) and a walk with 3 strikeouts. The bullpen was shutdown- Robbie Weinhardt went1.1 innings with 2 hits and a strikeout, Dan Schlereth went an inning with 2 strikeouts (always nice to see a walkless outing from him) and Jay Sborz finished it off with a hitless inning and one strikeout. Brent Dlugach was 1-3 with a homer and a walk and Ben Guez was 4-4 with 2 doubles.
Jon Kibler was okay- 7.1 innings with 1 run allowed on 4 hits and 3 walks, but you'd like to see more than 2 strikeouts. Luis Marte pitched an inning, and allowed one hit and got a strikeout. Wilkin Ramirez went 2-4 with a double and a triple- hopefully he's putting those tools to good use. Andy Dirks was 1-4 with a homer, and Cale Iorg walked (but also went 0-2 and struck out again).
Charlie Furbush caught a hard luck loss in this one- he allowed 2 runs on 4 hits (including a homer which scored both runs) and a walk with 13 (!!!) strikeouts over 6.1 innings. Matt Hoffman had a hitless inning with one strikeout. Alden Carrithers was 2-2 with 2 walks and a double- the only extra base hit of the game for the Flying Tigers
Jacob Turner started today- not a fantastic outing though, as the youngster went 4 innings allowing 4 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks with 3 strikeouts. Kenny Faulk went 2 innings, striking out 4, giving up 2 hits and walking 1. Jamie Johnson was 2-4 with a triple and a walk- this kid is shaping up well. Wade Gaynor was 2-4 with a homer and a walk, and Eric Roof was 3-4.
