Oh, dear. Had BattleMoses not reminded me over Skype that the recappers were doing their best Dan impressions and taking over for the Minor League recaps, you may very well have never been able to read this. Wouldn't that have been tragic? A world without your morning Minors lines - is it really a world worth living in?
Snakelet of the Day:
Tyler Skaggs (Double-A)- 6IP, 2H, 0ER, 1BB, 4SO
Triple-A: Reno 0, Sacramento 10 - Patrick Corbin made his debut for the Aces after being sent down from the big league club, and it's probably safe to say that he wishes for a mulligan. Corbin was responsible for four runs over five innings - not a terrible start , but certainly not a good one - and took the loss for Reno, who found themselves scoreless for just the third time this season.
Double-A: Mobile 3, Tennessee 0 - The BayBears shut out the Smokies on Tyler Skaggs' six-inning, two-hit, no-run awesomeness. Marc Krauss and Matt Davidson both had a decent nights as well; Davidson singled in his three at-bats, while Davidson hit a solo shot and scored twice. By the way, if you hadn't noticed yet, Tyler Skaggs is pretty good.
High-A: Visalia 2, Stockton 3 - David Holmberg went eight innings, allowing just two earned runs in the process to go along with six hits and six strikeouts. It wasn't enough for the Rawhide, though, who remain stuck in a tie for third in the division. Chris Owings and Archie Gilbert both homered in a losing effort.
A: South Bend 5, Great Lakes 3 - John Pedrotty was apparently the story of the night for the Silver Hawks, as he went a career-high 7.2 innings to get the W for South Bend. He gave up two earned runs and struck out seven batters, tying his high for the season. Gerson Montilla hit a two-run blast in the third, which proved to be the difference on Saturday.
