BBDP April 17th: Murphy walks off and Abe Almonte dominates

BBDP MVP: Abe Almonte

Triple-A Empire State: L 2-4 vs Rochester. L: Whitley (1-1)

Kevin Russo: 1/4, BB, 2 K, CS (1) (.275)
Francisco Cervelli: 3/5, R, K (.162). That’s more like it Frankie, I hope you’re out of that little funk you were in.
Colin Curtis: 0/4, BB, 2 K (.244)
Brandon Laird: 0/2 (.222)
Ray Kruml: 1/4, RBI, SB (1) (.174)
Dewayne Wise didn’t play in this one after being pulled from yesterday’s game mysteriously, injury?
Chase Whitley: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 4 K (4.05). Still good on the strikeouts, but that’s too many hits.

Double-A Trenton: W 6-2 vs Erie. W: Marshall (2-1)

“Honest” Abe Almonte: 3/3, 3 R, 2B, HR (1), RBI, 2 BB, 2 SB (3) (.262) Can’t have much better of a day than that.
Ronnier “Musketeer” Mustelier: 2/3, RBI, BB, K, SB (2) (.349) Rakin’ like it’s the fall. Yesterday I suggested he should stop stealing, so you have to respect the continued aggression, especially since today he was successful.
Zoilo Almonte: 1/5, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K (.273)
Luke Murton: 1/4, 2 RBI (.182)
Melky Mesa: 1/5, 2B (.286)
Dan Brewer: 1/1 (.172). Pulled after his first AB for unknown reason.
Walt Ibarra: 2/4, R, 2B, RBI, SB (1) (.314). Since he’s relatively light hitting, he’s gotta pick up the tempo on those stolen bases.
Brett “Fire” Marshall: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, BB, 3 K (5.4 ERA). Much better outing. Hopefully the last one was an aberration.
Ryan Flannery: 1 IP, 0 ER, BB, K (1.29 ERA). Very steady and consistent throughout his career.

High-A Tampa: W 2-1 vs Clearwater. W: Montgomery (1-1). Won in the bottom of the 9th inning on a walk off hit by JR Murphy

Eddy Sosa: 0/4, RBI (.213)
Kelvin Castro: 0/4, 3 K (.222)
Ramon Flores: 1/4, K (.195)
Rob Segedin: 0/4, K (.283)
Neil Medchill: 1/4, R, 3B, 3 K (.316)
JR “Murph” Murphy: 3/4, R, RBI (.270). The lone bright spot in the offense today, and he didn’t even have an extra base hit.
Jose Mojica: 0/3, K (.361)
Shane Greene: 5.2 IP, 4 H, ER, 4 BB, 5 K (3.00 ERA). Love the strikeouts, hate the walks, content with the overall outing.
Brandon Pinder: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, BB, 3 K (3.24 ERA). Love the strikeouts, hate the WHIP, love the results.
Mark “Monte Python” Montgomery: 1 IP, H, 0 ER, K (2.84 ERA). Love everything.

Low-A Charleston: W 7-3 vs. Augusta. W: Wetherell. Won in extra innings with a huge 11th inning.

Mason Williams: 1/5, 2 R (.315). Hit streak now at 11 games, starting with game one of the season.
Ben Gamel: 2/6, 2B, 2 RBI, K, CS (1) (.244) Nice two-hit game after a series of 1/4′s and 1/5′s
Dante Bichette Jr: 1/4, RBI, K (.311). Pulled at some point for pinch hitter Casey Stevenson.
Casey Stevenson: 1/1, R (.455)
Tyler Austin: 2/4, R, BB (.450) Can anyone in Low-A get this guy out? His followers are starting to become so rabid that I am going to start calling them the “Austinites,” which is also what people who reside in Austin, Texas, are called.
Gary Sanchez: 1/5, R, K (.364). Kept his now 6 game hit streak intact with a late hit.
Angelo Gumbs: 0/3, R, 2 BB, K (.167)
Cito Culver: 1/5, 3 K (.136)
Anderson Feliz: 2/5, 2 RBI, 2 K (.297)
Caleb “Gotham City” Cotham: 4 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 5 K (2.08 ERA)
Wilton Rodriguez: 4 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 K (2.7 ERA). First bad appearance of the season.
Phil Wetherell: 3 IP, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K (1.00 ERA). Brilliant work in relief to keep the team in contention.
