    Thompson finished 6-2/3 with one walk, one bit and 9 punchouts. That’s an encouraging start.

    In other news, Gorman finally had an extra base hit that wasn’t a home run.

    Going into tonjght Peoria had 11/14 pitchers with at least a K per inning pitched. The 3 that didnt had 6 k’s in 6.1 IP, 3 k’s in 3.2 IP and 6 k’s in 6.2 IP. Love leads the way with an impressive 20 k’s in Just 14 IP

    Gotta think Gomez will be getting the promo to AAA soon. What a start for him!

    I know we’ve seen this before from a non-prospect. But he’s 23 so one can hope!!

    For reference, Juan Yepez was 23 last season when he followed the same path.

    Boy has McGreevy been good. He gave up a homer tonight but otherwise had a great outing…6 innings, 4 hits, 0 walks, 9 Ks. He sort of reminds of a Wacha or Weaver with how well he’s taking to his craft and dominating the mid levels of the minors. Hopefully his health and stuff fare better than those two.

    The St. Louis Cardinals system was 4-0 on Tuesday, with two shutouts and a 20-2 scoring edge. The Cardinal Nation’s Player of the Day is Memphis starter Zack Thompson, who pitched 6 2/3 scoreless with nine punchouts. Teammate Ben DeLuzio went deep twice and made a gem in the outfield.

    Great day for the minors teams yesterday, and gold pitching going again today means a solid chance for another winning ledger. It’d be nice to see some win streaks.

    Graceffo with another great start today. 5 2/3, 1 run allowed, 9 Ks. He and Mcgreevy are looking at promotions soon, which will help the Springfield starting staff. Leahy Oviedo, and Zeuch sure look vulnerable to a move to the bullpen.

    Noot leading off 3 for 4 with 2 doubles, Gordon 2 HRs. Game not over.

    Gorman now 4-5 with 2 HRs and 4 RBIs, and just missed a third dinger. I’m not sure what else the kid has to do to get a promotion. Yes, we know he will struggle at first. He always does. But it feels like we are wasting his hot streak in Memphis.

    Also, Yepez and Burleson hit their 6th HRs individually.

    Memphis and Springfield hitters are looking at the starters and realize they need to put up a ten spot tonight.

    Rodriguez and Baker pitched very well for Peoria and Palm Beach respectively.

    Rodriguez 6 innings, 6 hits, 1 run, 1 bb, 8 Ks
    Baker 7 innings, 2 hits, 0 runs, no walks, and 8 Ks.

    Palm Beach won 8-1, Peoria is losing 1-nil.

    Leahy actually pitched a good game. Zeuch did not, and he should be moved out of the rotation.

    Should be a fair number of strikeouts by our starters tonight. It’s good to see the pitching getting its footing in the minors this year.

    I wondering if Pike wouldn’t make a good loogy? He allowed a .310 average versus right handed hitters, while holding lefties to around .250 and a much higher K percentage. He has a nice curveball.

    It’s all but a certainty we will several of our top prospects to the majors, which is a good thing of course, and it’s very nice to see the new guys step right into those spots with how well things are going for them – specifically Winn, McGreevy, and Graceffo all look like top 100 players for next year, along with Walker.

    Libby 7 IP, 3 H, 3 walks, 7 Ks. He’s thrown 82 pitches so we will see if he comes back for the 8th. The rest of the pitching in the system has been pretty poor so far tonight.
