Around the System - May 10
With Ivan Nova called to New York, Scranton was immediately hamstrung against the Clippers. Amarui Sanit was forced into a starting role, and he did not fare well. Sanit gave up four runs in his three innings before giving way to Kevin Whelan, Josh Schmidt and Zack Segovia. Schmidt, in his first appearance in Triple-A, gave up three runs on five hits over three innings.
In his first day back in the lineup after being benched for disciplinary reasons, Jesus Montero was 0-for-4. Reegie Corona went 3-for-4 with a double, and Chad Huffman had a pair of knocks.
Double-A: Trenton 8, New Britain 2
The Thunder's hot offense kept on rolling, tagging David Bromberg for eight runs on 11 hits in just 4 2/3 innings. Bromberg came in with an ERA of 1.61 and left with a mark of 3.58. Austin Krum and Jose Gil each had three hits, and Justin Christian, Austin Romine and Dan Brewer collected two hits apiece. Christian's two-run double was the only one of the Thunder's 14 hits that went for extra bases.
With six innings of one-run ball, Ryan Pope collected his first win of 2010 and lowered his ERA to 5.11. The defense turned three double plays behind Pope.
High-A: Fort Myers 4, Tampa 2
Although he pitched beautifully, the T-Yanks' Hector Noesi was outdueled by the Miracle's Kyle Gibson, last year's first-round pick for the Twins. Noesi fanned eight over six innings of two-run ball. Overall, the 22-year-old Dominican has racked up 47 Ks in 38 innings, all the while pitching to a WHIP of 0.89, second best in the FSL.
Melky Mesa, Brad Suttle and Mitch Abeita each had a double in the loss. Corban Joseph went 1-for-4, putting his batting average at .331.
Low-A: Charleston 4, Delmarva 3
Perhaps in advance of a promotion, Graham Stoneburner was yanked from the game after just one inning. He was relieved by Sean Black, who allowed two unearned runs on two hits over four innings. Luke Murton had a two-run home run off of Ryan Berry in the fifth. Francisco Arcia had two hits, including a double, and Rob Lyerly also had a two-bagger in the win.
