  1. Looking at the Brewers' pitching, it is safe to say that they have been doing a great job overall. However, one thing that the BCCC Crew have noticed is that they do have a bit of an issue with giving up a big inning. Furthermore, with the likelyhood of Freddy Peralta getting put on the IL for a bit, how does this impact 1) the 6-man starting rotation that the Brewers utilized and 2) the opportunity it opens up for bringing up young arms from the farm system. Come join for the Brew City Couch Committee's Week 6 “Quick Hit” episode where they look to discuss these topics. View full video

  3. In Apirl, we watched the Brewers' front office quickly react to news that catcher Pedro Severino had been popped for 80 games for his positive PED test. They quickly acquired catchers Victor Caratini (from the Padres) and Alex Jackson (from Atlanta). On Tuesday, the Brewers had to again quickly react to another PED suspension on their roster. This time, reliever JC Mejia, who was just called up last week from Nashville, heads to the restricted list for 80 games after testing positive for Stanozolol. That does free up a spot on the 40-man roster, and the Brewers called up Trevor Kelley from Nashville to take his spot on the 26-man roster. JC Mejia signed with Cleveland way back in 2013 out of the Dominican Republic. After three seasons in the DSL, he came to the States and very slowly climbed the organizational ladder. He finished the 2019 season at High-A Lynchburg. Following the Covid-lost 2020 season, he began 2021 at Triple-A Columbus. By May 21, he made his MLB debut with Cleveland. In 17 games (11 starts), he went 1-7 with an ERA of 8.25. In 52 1/3 innings, he gave up 60 hits (including 13 home runs), walked 24, and struck out 47 batters. After the season, he was DFAd by Cleveland and traded to the Brewers in exchange for infielder David Fry. He began this season with Nashville and was very good. In 10 2/3 innings over nine appearances, he had a 0.84 ERA. He had given up just one run on four hits. He had walked six batters, but he also struck out 15. Needing an arm last week, he was called up to Milwaukee and made two appearances for the Brewers. They didn't go well. He gave up five runs on three hits and three walks in just 1 1/3 innings in his first appearance last Wednesday. On Saturday, he gave up one run on two hits and two walks in one inning. How will the Brewers replace his 23.14 ERA and 4.286 WHIP in their bullpen? 29-year-old veteran Trevor Kelley will get the first shot. He had made 13 appearances for Nashville and worked 13 innings. He was 1-1 with a save and a 0.69 ERA. He had 17 strikeouts and just four walks. Kelley spent the full 2021 season with Gwinnett, Atlanta's Triple-A affiliate, despite a 1.52 ERA and a 10.0 K/9. In 2020, he pitched in four games with the Phillies. He debuted as a 26-year-old with the Red Sox in 2019 when he went 0-3 with an 8.64 ERA in 10 games. The Brewers bullpen has been solid, or at least it's been alright. Well, Josh Hader has been as good as he's ever been, and Brad Boxberger is pitching really well too. They're getting decent performances and looking for more consistency. The roster spot vacated by Mejia is a back-of-the-bullpen spot that will likely be used in lower-leverage situations. It could be a revolving door of pitchers, trying to find someone who can be reliable. For teams expecting to compete, it makes a lot of sense to sign several relievers like Trevor Kelley, and several others pitching out of the Sounds' bullpen. Others who could be considered if needed include Hobie Harris (29), Connor Sadzeck (30), Luis Perdomo (29), Miguel Sanchez (28), and Luke Barker (30). Pitchers such as Josh Lindblom (35), Jason Alexander (29), and Caleb Boushley (28) could be backend bullpen guys as needed as well. And if you're looking for a prospect to come up and contribute, 25-year-old Ethan Small is currently 3-1 with a 1.95 ERA in In 32 1/3 innings, he has 46 strikeouts (12.8 K/9) in his seven starts. The one issue has been the 21 walks (5.8 BB/9). He profiles pretty similarly to Aaron Ashby. So, what are your thoughts on the news about JC Mejia? Can Trevor Kelley fill the role, or do you think it would be a revolving door on the 26 and 40-man rosters? Which veterans are you intrigued by at Nashville? And, what circumstance would you consider best for bringing up Ethan Small? Leave your COMMENTS below.
  4. For the second time already this season, a Milwaukee Brewers player has been suspended for 80 games following a positive PED test. JC Mejia will miss the nearly three months of games and be ineligible to compete in the 2022 playoffs. In Apirl, we watched the Brewers' front office quickly react to news that catcher Pedro Severino had been popped for 80 games for his positive PED test. They quickly acquired catchers Victor Caratini (from the Padres) and Alex Jackson (from Atlanta). On Tuesday, the Brewers had to again quickly react to another PED suspension on their roster.

  5. Keston Hiura (2) and Mark Mathis (1) hit three home runs over the first five innings to give Ethan Small plenty of cushion in a Nashville 10-1 rout in Jacksonville. The Timber Rattlers produced a similar scoreline 10-2 in Quad Cities, though the runs came late and without any long balls. I’m sure Wisconsin’s Tristan Peters and Tyler Black enjoyed some rest after recording a combined three triples in the game. By contrast, Biloxi and Carolina missed several chances to knock in runs, with each dropping their second consecutive game of the week. Game Balls go to Hiura, Mark Mathias, Ethan Small, Peters and Black. Transactions: RHP Ryne Moore promoted to High-A Wisconsin from Low-A Carolina RHP Stiven Cruz promoted to Low-A Carolina from DSL Brewers1 RHP Justin Bullock activated from AA Biloxi’s 7-day injured list Game Action: Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Fayetteville 7, Carolina 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats’ website, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Mascai and Cerny Lead Fayetteville Offense to Second Win Over Mudcats As is often the case in sports and life, you’ve got to take advantage of the chances when they come, lest you regret it later. In this one, the Mudcats stranded five runners over the first three innings and six more over the final three innings, going 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position in their loss. RHP Alexander Cornielle took the loss after yielding two runs in the first inning and then giving up a two-run jack to .194-hitting Victor Mascal in the 4th inning to fall behind 4-2. However, let's take strong encouragement from his eight strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings, which looks like a sign of progress for the young hurler. That Woodpecker lead steadily grew to 7-2 by the 7th inning before the Mudcats loaded the bases with one out in the 8th inning. Credit must be given to Fayetteville’s Ian Foggo, who escaped that jam in his first appearance of the season, striking out six Carolina batters over the final two innings of the game. Performances of Note: Oswel Leones – 2-5, double Arbert Cipion – 1-3, triple, BB, RBI Hendry Mendez – 1-3, 2 BBs, SB Alexander Cornielle (Loss) – 4 2/3 IP, 4 R (3 ER), 5 H, 2 BBs, 1 WP, 8 Ks Junior Montero – 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 3 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Miguel Segura (5.21 ERA, 1.79 WHIP, 6.2 K/9 in 19 innings) is scheduled to start, as Carolina needs a win to tie up the series at two games apiece. However, let’s be on the lookout to see whether newly-promoted RHP Stiven Cruz gets his first full season action. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Wisconsin 10, Quad Cities 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, game details: Timber Rattlers Take Sixth Straight Win Although the final score suggests a blowout, Wisconsin actually trailed 2-0 after three innings in this one before the bats came to life in a big way. Kudos to Joe Gray Jr. and Ethan Murray for gunning down a River Bandit at third base to end a first inning threat. OF Tristan Peters collected Wisconsin’s first clutch hit, a triple in the 4th inning to score Zavier Warren (who’d walked), which 1B Wes Clarke followed up with a sacrifice fly to knot the contest at 2-2. An infield single by 2B Tyler Black accompanied by a Quad Cities throwing error gave the Timber Rattlers a 3-2 lead in the 5th inning, with RHP Justin Jarvis ultimately earning the win, though supported by RHP Robbie Baker's excellent 2 2/3 innings of scoreless work. Still tight heading into the 7th inning, Wisconsin opened the gap via an Alex Hall RBI-double, run scoring wild pitch and then a Tyler Black sacrifice fly to extend the lead to 6-2. In the bottom half, another solid defensive play (this time OF Micah Bello throwing out a River Bandit at home) wiped out another Quad Cities threat. The 8th inning saw Peters (another triple), Clarke (run-scoring single) and Tyler Black (3-run triple) again combine to put the game out of reach. Performances of Note: Tristan Peters – 3-5, 2 triples, RBI Tyler Black – 2-4, triple, SF, 4 RBIs Alex Hall – 2-3, double, BB, RBI Carlos D. Rodriguez – 1-3, double, BB, SB Wes Clarke – 1-4, SF, 2 RBIs Justin Jarvis (Win) – 5 IP, 2 R, 6 H, 2 BBs, 2 WP, 6 Ks Robbie Baker – 2 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 WP, 3 Ks Brady Schanuel – 1 1/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 WP, 3 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Max Lazar (3.31 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, 5.5 K/9 in 16 1/3 innings) is prepared to make his 7th long appearance (4th start) and extend Wisconsin’s winning streak to 7 games. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Birmingham 5, Biloxi 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers’ website, game details: Biloxi Falls To Birmingham Despite 11 Hits The return of RHP Justin Bullock, an early 3-1 lead and usually-solid RHP Carlos Luna on the mound for the middle innings looked like perfect ingredients for a Shuckers’ victory, but it was not to be on this day. Bullock hadn’t appeared in a game since leaving his first start on April 8th early, so the team must have been excited to have their dependable starter back on the mound. Bullock was limited to 35 pitches over two innings, exiting tied at 1-1 thanks to a Felix Valerio solo shot. Luna looked to have things in hand with a clean 3rd inning, followed by a two-run double by Jakson Reetz in the bottom half of the inning to score Garrett Mitchell and Joey Wiemer (who’d both singled). However, five consecutive Baron hits opened the top of the 5th inning to re-knot the game at 3-3 before Birmingham’s Jose Rodriguez produced a two-run, two-out single to take a 5-3 lead which held up the rest of the way. Credit goes to JT Hintzen, though, for entering with the bases loaded and one out, then stranded all three runners (soft infield line out, strikeout). Unfortunately, Biloxi was unable to match that clutch hitting, failing to score despite a one-out single (Brent Diaz) in the 6th inning and leadoff 7th and 8th inning singles (Noah Campbell, Thomas Dillard respectively). In addition to Hintzen, Nash Walters and Luis Contreras must also be recognized for giving their offense a chance, as the three relievers gave up zero runs over the final 4 2/3 innings. Performances of Note: Joey Wiemer – 2-4, double Garrett Mitchell – 2-4 Felix Valerio – 1-4, HR, RBI Jakson Reetz – 1-4, double, 2 RBIs Brock Holt – 1-4, SB Justin Bullock – 2 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 2 BBs, 0 Ks Carlos Luna (Loss) – 2 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 1 K JT Hintzen – 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 1 K Nash Walters – 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Luis Contreras – 2 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: Biloxi is counting on LHP Andy Otero (2.86 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, 9.2 K/9 in 28 1/3 innings) to come through win a dominant effort to end their two-game skid and tie up this week’s series with Birmingham at 2-2. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 10, Jacksonville 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details: Small Shines, Hiura Homers Twice in Sounds Victory If anyone needed a reminder that 2B Keston Hiura can hammer right-handed pitching, they certainly got it in this Nashville blowout. After LHP Ethan Small once again avoided big hits despite struggling with walks (two in the first inning, one to lead off the second inning), the Nashville offense blew up the game in the 3rd inning, starting with Mark Mathias’ 3rd homer of the season. Then after young prospects Mario Feliciano and Brice Turang each singled, Hiura pulled a two-out, 0-1 pitch out to left field for a three-run blast, his first since recently being optioned to AAA. Unfortunately, Hiura helped give a run back with a throwing error in the bottom of the 3rd inning, but he made up for it with a two-out, full count homer the other way in the 5th inning, scoring Weston Wilson (who’d doubled) and effectively putting the game out of reach at 6-1. With Small striking out nine batters in just five innings, the Sounds were comfortable on this evening. However, even with that large cushion, RHP Zack Brown and Luke Barker still took their work very seriously, combining to throw four hitless, scoreless innings to close it out. Performances of Note: Keston Hiura – 3-4, 2 HR, HBP, 7 RBIs Mark Mathias – 3-4, HR, RBI Weston Wilson – 2-5, double Mario Feliciano – 2-4 Brice Turang – 1-3, 2 BBs Ethan Small (Win) – 5 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 3 BBs, 1 WP, 1 balk, 9 Ks Zack Brown – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K Luke Barker – 2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 2 Ks Friday’s outlook: RHP Dylan File (3.95 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 6.3 K/9 in 27 1/3 innings), will try to replicate his last start, in which he gave up only three hits and no runs over five innings, as Nashville aims for a 3-1 series lead over Jacksonville.

  6. Keston Hiura drove in seven runs as Nashville cruised. Clutch hitting (including three triples) turned ten hits into ten runs for a Wisconsin victory, while Biloxi produced only three runs on 11 hits in a loss. The frustrated Mudcats left 11 men on base in their defeat. Keston Hiura (2) and Mark Mathis (1) hit three home runs over the first five innings to give Ethan Small plenty of cushion in a Nashville 10-1 rout in Jacksonville. The Timber Rattlers produced a similar scoreline 10-2 in Quad Cities, though the runs came late and without any long balls.

  7. Transactions: RHP Luis Perdomo to the big league Brewers, as he was selected to the 40-man roster from Nashville. Keston Hiura will join the Sounds within the next day or so. The Perdomo/Hiura swap constituted the 22nd and 23rd player transactions for the Sounds this season. Nashville staff pointed out that in the first full calendar month of 2021, there had been 69 (!) player moves, in case you had forgotten about the injury madness that plagued the parent club last spring. Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Norfolk (Orioles) 6, Nashville 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Grand Slam Leads Tides over Sounds - Norfolk gets blast in the first inning to even series MiLB's near-consensus top prospect, Baltimore's Adley Rutschman, made his 2022 AAA debut as he works his way back from a triceps injury, though he played first base in this game rather than catcher. The Tides' backstop on this night was old friend Jacob Nottingham, and he played a part in Ethan Small's rough first frame, drawing a two-out walk to load the bases just prior to the grand slam you read about in the summary. You can watch the fateful blast here (the Sounds' staff saves the good camera work for their own grand slams). It is the only home run allowed by Small in 27 1/3 innings this season. RHP Zack Brown came on for Small to start the 5th and induced three groundouts in a 1-2-3 inning. Brown's 6th inning, however, went walk-walk-HBP-K-sac fly-walk. RHP Peter Strzelecki continued his excellent work by stranding all three of Brown's baserunners with a strikeout, then fanned the side in order in the 7th. Corey Ray and his .427 OPS (34% K rate on the relatively young season) sat for a second consecutive game. Milwaukee's 40-man roster is at only 39 even after the Luis Perdomo call-up, and RHP Justin Topa could be placed on the 60-day IL if need be, so Ray's 40-man roster spot isn't in imminent danger, but things are not trending well in his final option year. Despite the close final score, the only video the Sounds posted on this evening was from their Country Music Legend's between-innings race (Reba won on this night). Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes via the Shuckers' Virtual Press Box Final: Montgomery (Rays) 5, Biloxi 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Shuckers' site, game details, please review: Dillard Homers Again In Shuckers' 5-3 Defeat - Luna Strikes Out Season-Best Nine Batters Carlos Luna's K total is overshadowed however by the five earned runs allowed. Nice work by RHP's Taylor Floyd (with a bounceback perfect inning after his rough debut outing) and Harold Chirino. Garrett Mitchell is now 5-for-6 in stolen base attempts, and as you'll see below from the clips the Shuckers gleaned from the Biscuits' video feed, still has multiple tools. Making the most of the loss that placed Biloxi under .500 for the first time this season -- Saying this respectfully, but Thomas Dillard certainly has the Daniel Vogelback torso - Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes via their all-encompassing Virtual Press Box Final: Wisconsin 3, Fort Wayne (Padres) 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers' site, game details, please review: Wisconsin Scores Twice in the Ninth to Beat Fort Wayne - Rattlers get their fifth walkoff win of the season in 3-2 victory Nice rebound mound effort by RHP Justin Jarvis, and fellow RHP Zach Mort is having a rebound season after a shaky 2021 campaign. (FYI - each of the Crew's four full-season affiliates currently has exactly one "Zach" or "Zack". Two of each in total, and it's maddening that I need to look up the spelling each time.) Hello to catcher Alex Hall, who finally made his season debut. Hall was not on any type of injured or restricted list, but the roster limits are such that players can sometimes avoid placements even if they are laid up in some way. Hopefully all is good with the switch-hitting Aussie. Via the T-Rats' You Tube page, the team asks "Is This Real?" Maybe not quite in the "Real, and They're Spectacular' category, but two walk-off wild pitches by May 6th, with Zavier Warren scoring the winning run each time, is pretty cool. Always fun to see the players try and figure out who they should mob when there's an untraditional walk-off celebration. The Timber Rattlers also made the headlines here - Minor League Baseball Team Has Been Launching Brats To Fans With A ‘Bratzooka’ For 24 Years Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Carolina 5, Augusta (Braves) 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats' site, game details, please review: Leones Lifts Mudcats to 5-4 Comeback Victory - Oswel Leones hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth while helping the Mudcats to a 5-4 victory LISTEN: Post-Game Interview with Manager Victor Estevez Talk about worth the wait - mid-game rain delay after the 5th inning, then an 8th inning power outage delay. Can we hear it for the bullpen covering 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball with eight strikeouts and only one walk and one HBP? By the way, Brewers front office, please work with MiLB to have LHP Pablo Garabitos' Player Page migrated to the pitcher side. The former two-way player last saw action in the outfield in 2019 but is still listed as an outfielder. For his pro career, Oswel Leones has 28 extra-base hits and 100 singles. Huge moment for him in this one, you just saw the home run within the game summary from the 'Cats. More video - Be still, our hearts, Jackson Chourio! I could be wrong, but I believe this is the first time Carolina has had an entire starting lineup including the pitcher spot made up solely of international signings (seven from Venezuela, three from the Dominican Republic), Usually it was Bronx native Arbert Cipion or Minnesota product Zack Raabe throwing a monkey wrench into this look (and yes, I did double-check the spelling of Raabe's first name). Given the organization's somewhat disjointed history of developing Latin players, this is pretty amazing. I apologize if this was not the first night this season this occurred - regardless, very cool.

  8. For the second time on the young season, the Timber Rattlers walked off without having to lift the bat off a shoulder. The Mudcats rode a special starting lineup to a tight victory that went deep into the Carolina night. On the flip side of the W-L ledger, the Sounds' Ethan Small allowed twice as many earned runs in the first inning as he had allowed in his prior five starts combined. Remember when the Shuckers opened the season 7-0? Good times. Since then? 5-13, ouch. Ready for your daily round-up? Here we go!

Transactions: None *** Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Nashville 12, Charlotte (White Sox) 2 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Alex Jackson's Inside-The-Park Grand Slam Leads Sounds Past Knights - Brice Turang Ties Franchise Record with Five Hits in Win (And yes, there is video of the odd grand slam within the summary.) It's always a good sign when MiLB tasks an overnight assignment editor to get some quotes and put together a feature on your favorite club. That was the case Friday. 'It just clicked': Turang finds rhythm during 5-hit night by Manny Randhawa, MiLB.com My goodness, we spend enough time in April parsing over batting and pitching lines, because let's face it, it's in our nature as fans and in particular, prospect watchers. Brice Turang's batting average jumped 71 points in one night, and his OPS vaulted from .591 to .750. Just a tremendous reminder to consider early-season patience when diving into stat line analyses. As for prime southpaw Ethan Small and all his other eye-popping numbers, he can't expect to walk just under six per nine innings (as he has through four starts here, it was 4.9 per nine for all of 2021), and find big league success, no matter what all the other raw figures say. Still some work to do, but my goodness, still so impressive. And now for the videos that weren't embedded in the articles linked above -- Weston Wilson > Mike Brosseau For his minors career, Mario Feliciano gets hit by a pitch once every 53 plate appearances, but it seems like more. Hello to 3rd string catcher Brian Navarreto, who made a cameo appearance and first since April 7th.

In video form, nice job in capturing this much for us from the home Birmingham feed (hence not quite the announcer excitement one might expect) - RHP Victor Castaneda was just 18 years old in 2017 when he appeared in nine games (four starts) in the Mexican League, close to AAA-equivalent, just prior to Milwaukee signing him. This marks just his second season dedicated to a starter's role. Still no sign of reliever Taylor Floyd, bummer. *** Friday’s Rattlers Home Game with Quad Cities Rained Out - Teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday with game one starting at 1:10pm It's going to be a banger of a Saturday in Grand Chute with expected glorious weather.

This Hillcats - Mudcats matchup doesn't feature any actual cats, then. We haven't made much mention of 2021 8th round second baseman Zack Raabe, who had a nice night here, on base three times via base on balls, now sporting a .483 OBP through the seven games in which he's appeared. Raabe's dad Brian appeared briefly in "the Show" with three organizations between 1995 and 1997. One can imagine how much Spanish Zack Raabe is picking up this year given the Latin-heavy makeup of the Carolina roster. Hendry Mendez must be part super-hero as he appeared as the designated hitter (and in the cleanup spot, no less) within 48 hours of a violent collision while sliding into second base. Good news to be sure.

  10. Minor league coaches always remind players that as long as they have a uniform on, they have their chance to contribute at the big-league level for their organization. That is true, but clubs need to hit on their premier draft picks in order to maximize their talent base at the game's highest plateau. While Mother Nature slowed down red-hot 2021 1st round OF Sal Frelick Friday night, the Brewers other most recent top picks (OF Garrett Mitchell. LHP Ethan Small, and SS Brice Turang) had tremendous evenings.

  11. Final: Nashville 5, Durham (Rays) 4 Box Score Nashville Site Game Summary: Sounds Score Walk-Off Winner on Opening Day - Corey Ray’s Infield Single in the Ninth Wins it for Nashville We'll build off the always-detailed game summaries (definitely suggested reading) with nuggets and observations, and please add in your own thoughts by commenting on our daily posts all season. Wait, we can embed tweets now? Thank you very much, site upgrade! Jon Singleton kicks off the game's timeline. Nice to have home games on the docket for the higher quantity of video content. We always thank the production crews at each affiliate for providing these highlights, and Voice of the Sounds Jeff Hem is in fine Opening Night form. Reminder - Brice Turang will be 22 years old all season long. In nine Nashville starts in 2021, Ethan Small posted a 2.06 ERA but walked 21 and struck out 24 in 35 innings. So perhaps the note on his strikeouts here isn't as surprising as one might think initially. Keep in mind that both highlights you are about to see happened in the top of the 6th within moments of each other. Despite allowing line drive base hits to the first three men he faced, RH reliever Hobie Harris escaped with a scoreless inning and no doubt treated Corey Ray to a cold one after the game. Now remember, it's called a walk-off because the losing team walks off the field. The winning team tends to bounce off, high-five off, etc. Brice Turang and Jamie Westbrook on base thrice each. All nine lineup starters played the entire game. Your Opening Night bench: C Brett Sullivan, INF's Mark Mathias and Andruw Monasterio, OF's Jonathan Davis, Dustin Peterson and Garrett Whitley. We're all Luke Barker fans, but the two runs he allowed in a save situation set up the final dramatics: Ground ball single, wild pitch, walk, line drive single to load the bases, ground ball RBI single, sacrifice fly, then nice work to preserve the tie.
