Memphis leads 2-1 through three innings. Hudson wiggles out of trouble in the third, holding Durham to only one run. He has five strikeouts as well.September 19, 2017 at 8:15 pm #33477
Josh Zeid, who led Memphis in HRs allowed this season with 18, loaded the bases, then give up a grand slam to Kean Wong, Kolten’s brother. Memphis down 5-3 in the 6th now.September 19, 2017 at 8:20 pm #33478
Redbirds hitters have hit 5 or 6 groundouts in a row.Killing worms like crazy the last couple of innings.Bunch of grasskillers.On a couple of balls hit hard..
O’Neill smoked a opposite field single and Valera ( I think) hit a hard groundout.September 19, 2017 at 9:22 pm #33488

Stubby with the exceptionally quick hook of Hudson may have cost the game. They are starters for a reason.September 19, 2017 at 9:41 pm #33492

The Memphis Redbirds finished their historic season with a loss in the Triple-A National Championship Game. Jacob Wilson doubled in two runs.September 20, 2017 at 8:49 am #3351714NyquisTParticipant
Well, the curtain has come down on the MiLB season and although MEM didn’t win last night’s game vs. Durham, it was a good opportunity to see some of the younger guys playing their hearts out. If you missed the throw that JAGarcia made from RF to 3rd base to nail Kane Wong going from 1st to 3rd on a bleeder through the infield, you didn’t see a strong throw that was right on the money. The type of throw that the runner just runs into, in this case, Diaz merely had to catch the ball. Very sweet.
Hudson was in and out of trouble in his three innings. Clapp went with the all hands on deck approach with the pitching staff…. maybe not the wisest of decisions.
Ultimately, it was Kolten’s brother, Wong Jr., that did us in with three his and a grand slam off of Zeid. You could almost feel something was brewing when Zeid hit a batter on an 0-2 count to start the inning off. I have this thing about putting the lead-off man on base.
The announcer and commentator Jim Kaat made numerous mistakes with background info and there was a on-the-field interviewer that wouldn’t shut up as the game, at times, became secondary. Kaat did bring up several times that the hitters were doing the right things ie. moving runners up etc. He continued that these things aren’t seen nearly as much in MLB. He also noted that the prospects who helped run up the early season wins were now playing for the Cardinals. You know who they are.
All in all it was two pretty good set of rosters playing for pride.September 20, 2017 at 8:53 am #33518

A belated “Congratulations!” to the PCL champion Memphis Redbirds. Despite numerous call-ups of key players in order to try to get the big league club into the post season, the Baby Birds kept chugging.
I saw something where that team went an amazing 13-0 in extra inning games. Amazing. A very good year for the junior Cardinals, which takes a little sting out of the failures of the big boys.
