Charlotte Rallies Past Sounds - Seven-Run Fourth Inning Dooms Nashville
Box Score / Game Log
The Columbus Clippers (Guardians) game had not completed as of the game summary you just read; however the Clippers did win 7-6 and trail the Sounds by 3.5 games (three in the loss column) with 16 games remaining in the season. It's pretty wild the Sounds have had to keep the pedal to the metal given their amazing record. Nothing's locked in yet in terms of a division title.
Three innings into this game and I was literally saying to myself and was about to tweet. you know, given RHP Tyler Herb's recent work and the absolute need for the Brewers to pluck the organization's hottest hand, Herb was suddenly a candidate for a big-league start or two down the stretch. Check out Herb's game log going all the way back to July 26th.
And then the 4th inning happened. Click on the game log link above to review in full. Yikes.
Ho-hum, a 3-for-5 night for Sal Frelick. In his first 33 games at AAA (15 multi-hit games), his line is .364/.444/.447 (.891 OPS), In 132 AB's, Frelick has only struck out 10 times (16 walks), six stolen bases in nine attempts. On-base streak to 28 games.
Esteury Ruiz’s home run was his 14th of the year, but first as a Sound and first as a member of the Brewers organization. MiLB.TV subscribers, go to the 02:05:45 hour minute mark here. Why do you want to visit? The RH-hitter pulled it 461 feet, what a bomb.
Prediction: Brewers re-add catcher Pedro Severino to their 40-man roster immediately after the regular season. Dude is lighting it up at AAA (.918 OPS, 81 AB's). Severino will be able to elect free agency as a XX(d) player after the end of the Major League season and will not have to wait until five days after the last game of the World Series.
Final: Biloxi 9, Mississippi (Braves) 1
Clarke Homers Three Times, Jarvis Dominates In 9-1 Rout - Shuckers Set Single-Season Home Run Record
Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log
Let's remember, Wes Clarke was just drafted in 2021 (10th round), so like Sal Frelick in Nashville, this is just Clarke's first full pro season. It's worth revisiting all the pre-draft scouting reports we gathered in our 2021 Draft Day Forum Thread.
Add a single as well to Clarke's three dingers, 4-for-4 on the night.
Quotes from the man of the hour within - it's always a good thing when the MiLB home office is requesting a post-game interview:
Corey Ray's going to Corey Ray. Good luck in your next destination, young man.
Saturday’s Game between the Timber Rattlers and Sky Carp Rained Out - Game will not be rescheduled; Season Ends Sunday
Darn, was looking forward to commenting on this one as the T-Rats are on such a nice roll. Yeah, they could have scheduled two games Sunday, but then the locals wouldn't be home in time for 3:25 Packers kickoff, would they?
Good luck to Trevor Gott in his first rehab outing Sunday before joining the Sounds in Nashville Tuesday.
This is my final Link Report prior to the end of the Wisconsin season. Thank you, players, Joe Ayrault and staff, Chris Mehring and Kyle Lobner. Lots of fun following this team in 2022.
Final: Carolina 7, Myrtle Beach (Cubs) 3
Mudcats End Losing Streak with 7-3 Victory - Cameron Wagner struck out six over four and 2/3 in relief to help Carolina end its three-game skid
Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log
2022 draftees Eric Brown, Jr. and Robert Moore flip-flopped middle infield spots for this one, with Moore at short. Then Moore reached base all five times up (double, single, three walks) and Brown singled and walked twice. Both also stole a base.
Big games also for 19-year-old Jace Avina and two 18-year-old's having nice seasons in Luis Castillo and Jadher Areinamo.
College draftees performing as they should, and teenagers exceeding expectations, that's a nice recipe for future hopes.
Hedbert Perez 0-for-4, sorry Hedbert, but hard to say 2022 was a positive for you overall. Glimpses, sure.
Hey, how about 6'5" RHP Cameron Wagoner's pro debut campaign? The 11th rounder out of Eastern Michigan has a 24-to-2 K-to-BB ratio.
I've got little statistical evidence beyond my recollections here, but I admittedly will often go to the "Inherited Runners - Scored" portion of the box score before anything else. The Mudcats either have a "3-0" mark, as LHP Leoni De La Cruz ably did here to help save RHP Logan Henderson's line, or it's "3-3" as a disaster relief stint. It's rarely in-between.
Thanks to Greg Young, Jr. for all your efforts in Raleigh. Definitely enhanced our reports for another season.
Odd for a Sunday, but other than the Timber Rattlers early start we referenced above, the other three affiliates all begin play in the early evening. The NFL controls all! Go get 'em in your season finales today, T-Rats and Mudcats.
Trust me, it's not an afterthought. God Bless America and especially all those who were very directly impacted on this date 21 years ago. Take care, everyone.
