The St. Louis Cardinals system was 0-1 on Wednesday. The two DSL teams were off. The Player of the Day is Memphis 3B Brendan Donovan, who hit a solo home run for the only run for Memphis in their loss to Jacksonville.
Results from games played Wednesday, Sept 22.
The Redbird offense was held to only one run as the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp blew past Memphis for a 7-1 victory on Wednesday night. A rain delay shortened the game, and it was called in the sixth inning.
Austin Warner was a late addition as the starter for this game. Dakota Hudson was scheduled to make a rehab start but he instead was scratched, with the potential to head back to the big-league club to pitch in Friday’s doubleheader in Chicago. Warner got the start instead, but he lasted only 1 1/3 innings, gave up four runs, two earned, on four hits and struck out one. Seth Elledge relieved Warner and tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings. Freddy Pacheco followed with two scoreless innings. Jacob Bosiokovic started the sixth, got one out and surrendered three runs, two earned before the game was called. Warner took the loss, his third of the season.
The Redbirds scored their only one run of the game in the first inning on a solo home run by Brendan Donovan.
Leadoff Brendan Donovan home run?

Jacksonville scored two runs in the home half of the first and two runs in the second to go up 4-1. That score lasted until the bottom of the sixth, when the Jumbo Shrimp added three more to their tally before the game ended due to rain.
The Redbird offense managed only two hits, the Donovan long ball and a single by Alec Burleson.
In the field, Donovan and Bosiokovic both made throwing errors. Ali Sanchez had a passed ball.
Memphis is 0-2 in the first series of the Triple-A Final Stretch.
