    Billings seems to be the airplane shuttle from EST to Springfield. This doesn’t bode well for him once short-season starts imo.

    And Billings shows that I’m a fool with a 3-run homer for Springfield as they tried to mount a comeback in the 7th. Meisner put the Cards in the hole early in often as he was shelled for 5 home runs and 6 runs total.

    Montero came to the plate in the bottom of the 9th with 2 on and 2 out and he struck out to complete an 0-for-5 day. Springfield loses 7-10.

    In the Peoria game Jacob Schlesener appears to have been removed from the Chiefs rotation as he come into the 7th out of the bullpen and proceeded to walk all 4 batters he faced on just 22 pitches.

    Not really sure what some prognosticators saw in him in declaring him a top 30 prospect.

    My guess is that others were hoping he would be a late-blooming lefty, but IMO, his control had not improved enough after four years in short-season ball. He would have short bursts of success, but could not sustain. Also, by default, some watch Missouri native prospects more closely than others. This community ranked him #81 this past winter.

    The Chiefs waste a dandy 6 inning, 4 hit, 1 run, 9 K and 1 BB performance from Venezuelan starter, Alvaro Seijas, by yielding five 7th inning runs, en route to an 8-5 setback to Clinton’s upstart LumberKing squad. Rogersville, Mo. native Jacob Schlesener being the main culprit of the 7th inning meltdown by issuing 4 consecutive free passes to start the inning. Enter Noel De Jesus out of the Peoria pen with the sole purpose of dousing the fire, while possibly fanning a LumberKing batter or two. However the only thing De Jesus fanned was the flames, as he surrendered 3 runs on 3 hits and a walk in his lone inning of labor. On the Chiefs offensive end of things, they banged out 11 hits, with Lars Nootbaar getting 2 of them by accomplishing the tough part of hitting for the cycle by both tripling and homering. Ivan Herrera ( HR ) and Brady Whalen also chipped in with a couple of hits, with phenom, Nolan Gorman, going 1-3 with a rbi.

    Herrera is off to a pretty good start with a .290/.389/.645 line, good for a 193 wRC+. Should be fun to watch him battle at Peoria as an 18 year old, as he’s right in the conversation with Gorman as a phenom in his own right.
