  1. Transactions: OF Ramon Moreno was activated off the Restricted List by the DSL Brewers 1 RHP Justin Topa was recalled by the Milwaukee Brewers Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Memphis (Cardinals) 8, Nashville 4 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please visit and review: Sounds Clipped in Regular Season Finale - Team Finishes the Regular Season with 91 Wins It's not often you see an opposing team pad a lead at Horizon Park with RHP Trevor Kelley on the mound. That's just what happened in the top of the ninth inning when he surrendered an unlikely three-run jack to Redbirds catcher, Ivan Herrera. Even though the loss was unfortunate, let us celebrate another Sounds milestone: with Patrick Dorrian's second homer in the fourth frame, the Sounds plated their 807th run of their season surpassing their organizational record of 806 runs in 1999. A new century. And, new feats aplenty in 2022. What a season. I feel absolutely privileged to have watched so many games from this incredible team. And, let's not forget, even though Dorrian smashed two...INF Brice Turang hit another long ball as well (his 13th of his season - 9 of which came after the All Star break...sky is the limit): Three Quick Strikes: 1) We've discovered INF Patrick Dorrian has become a serious Sounds weapon on the road since the All-Star break. But, two long balls at home in the same game? Well, hey now! The Brewers might seriously have something here and it is yet another impactful pick-up in a season filled with them. Let's take a look at his homer in the bottom of the fourth inning as called by RHP's Caleb Boushley and Josh Lindblom. Yes, that's right. Listen in: 2) The Sounds finished their regular season home record with a grand total of (checks Schedule) a 48-27 record. I'm fairly certain that leads all the Minor Leagues (checks the Sounds press release above, confirmed!). What is perhaps more surprising is the massive improvement we witnessed on the road in the second half of the regular season. If you want to consider the meaning behind their best record in all of Triple-A, look at what they did just before the All Star Break on the road and during the entire second half: a 5-1 series win over the Clippers in Columbus, a 4-2 series win at Norfolk, a 4-2 series win at Jacksonville, a 4-2 series win at Durham, and a 4-2 series win at Louisville. That's just incredible output that ultimately paid their way to Las Vegas. 3) Let's finish with OF Sal Frelick. It truly is difficult to fathom what we've seen from this young stud since he started making waves in Biloxi. The 2022 season, as a whole, is simply awe-inspiring. The growth curve we are witnessing defies logic and expectations. We have seen the in-season evolution of a true lead-off prospect the likes of which we have most likely never seen in a Milwaukee Brewers uniform. This isn't hyperbole. His contact tool is simply off the charts. He hits lefties. He hits righties. He simply gets on base - to the tune of 41 games straight and counting. The only rationale I can gather concerning his lack of promotion to the MLB roster is the Brewers absolutely know what they have here and they want every single day of team control to manifest itself in full seasons of service time. They must not want to sprinkle in random days and weeks here in any way shape or form. It's truly the only thing that makes any bit of sense. Let us end with a mere share of what we've seen in this 41-game on-base streak ():0.364 BA (60-for-165), 9 2B, 2 3B, 4 HR, 36 R, 23 RBI. Do you think this might be of benefit to a certain club woefully trying to make the MLB playoffs? Well, folks, this is my last Minor League Report of 2022. It has been an absolute pleasure offering my observations and thoughts during a Brewers Minor League season filled with such a bounty of intrigue. We saw players take giant leaps in their development, we saw new draft picks grab their footholds, and now we get to support our Nashville Sounds as they look to take the Triple-A crown this weekend in Las Vegas. As always, thanks for reading and thank you for supporting these young men as they chase their dreams.

  2. It wasn't the result the Sounds wanted to end their regular season, but, honestly, who cares? The Sounds avoided any major injuries and they already had the number one seed wrapped up. Now, it's on to the playoffs Saturday night in Vegas. LHP Robert Gasser avoided his recent walk issues but apparently, he hit a bit too much of the plate in what was most likely his final outing of his 2022 season - 5 IP, 10 H, 1 HR, 5 ER, 6 K. The Sounds ultimately fell 8-4 closing their regular season with a loss.

  3. Transactions: - RHP Jake Cousins optioned from MLB Brewers to AAA Nashville (making room for the return of LHP Eric Lauer from injury) - INF Daniel Castillo released from ACL Brewers Blue - his pro journey recapped here, it included 19 games in Carolina in 2021 - RHP Braudin Ciprian of DSL-Brewers1 placed on the restricted list (60-game Stanozolol suspension) - we provide info on Ciprian's two-year stint thus far here Final: Nashville 6, Louisville (Reds) 3, ten innings Via the Sounds' site, game details, and we encourage readers to review affiliate write-ups as part of your Link Report routine: Sounds Clinch Division Title in Louisville - Nashville Takes 12th Division Title with Extra Inning Triumph Pre-Game Media Notes / Box Score / Game Log Surely folks have tired of me indicating as such, but for a wonderful rundown of how the game played itself out and a treasure trove of statistical notes, please visit that game summary if you have not done so already. Then we can enhance that with our own tidbits and news - we'll drill that routine into 2023 and beyond. With help from forum poster @wiguy94 we learn - "AAA championship weekend is in Las Vegas this year. Nashville would play a one-game playoff against the International League East winner (currently Durham) on Saturday, October 1st. If they win that game, they will play a one-game playoff against the winner of the Pacific Coast League championship game for the AAA National Championship on Sunday, October 2nd." Stand proud, Hortonville, Wisconsin and UW-La Crosse! Guess who has a birthday on Saturday, October 1st? Ace RHP Caleb Boushley turns 29 that day. Think we can pencil Boushley in for that birthday start. Can't save him for a Sunday game that may not happen. One more year of Brewers control on Boushley, expect to see him a whole bunch in big league camp next spring. He has proven to be a heck of pick in the minor league phase of Rule 5 (via the Padres). Speaking of astute pickups, still two more years of organizational control over June trade acquisition Patrick Dorrian. The 26-year-old LH-hitting infielder was acquired from Baltimore for the always handy cash considerations. So many relievers bounced between Nashville and Milwaukee in 2022, yet one of them was not RHP Hobie Harris. Fifty-one appearances with a 1.08 WHIP, money. Harris followed Boushley with a perfect 7th, two K's. The fact that the WHIP is so low despite 27 walks in 51.2 IP reveals that Harris has allowed only 29 hits. That MLB debut will need to happen in another organization unless the pending minor league free agent is brought back for 2023. After exiting Thursday's game in the 9th inning, Sal Frelick did not play Friday. Brice Turang helped pick up the multiple-base hit slack in Frelick's absence with a double, single and two RBI. On the flip side, Joey Wiemer was back in the lineup for the first time since last Saturday the 17th, one single in five at-bats. Nice to have his .900 OPS in September back. We agree with the Voice of the Sounds! Here's a reminder on the rest of the Nashville regular season schedule as they prep for next Championship Weekend. It's a 12:05 Central Time game today (Saturday) to wrap up the Louisville series. After a day off Sunday, the Sounds get to host Memphis (Cardinals) Monday thru Wednesday. Then it's off to the bright lights of Sin City (where they will be the home team, having clinched the #1 seed). They have beer in Vegas too, right?

  4. They have entertained us from start to finish. The Nashville Sounds, under erstwhile legendary Manager Rick Sweet and his veteran coaching staff, have played exemplary ball since the start of the 2022 season, and it culminated (for now) in a division championship after an extra-inning victory on the road Friday night. The Brewers' AAA club has provided support to the big-league team in terms of depth pieces, and it has been the proving ground for a couple of months now for a youthful new prospect core that is thriving. There's been little-to-no-controversary we're aware of, hard to avoid in the next-level down from MLB. Kudos, team, we "Bleed Sounds" with you, as your season mantra goes.

  5. Transactions: 9/19: (late transaction) C Nick Kahle was assigned to the Nashville Sounds from the Biloxi Shuckers RHP Justin Topa was was optioned to the Nashville Sounds by the Milwaukee Brewers Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Louisville (Reds) 10, Nashville 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please visit and review: Sounds Falter in Louisville - Nashville's Magic Number Remains at Five to Win Division A bases loaded one out situation in the top of the eighth inning fell short when INF Cam Devanney grounded into a first pitch, broken bat, ground ball to the Bats shortstop. This was truly an unfortunate end after INF Patrick Dorrian had just worked an 0-2 count to a 10-pitch walk to load them up. A chance to take the lead for the first time or, in the very least, continue chipping away ended in a fizzle and the Sounds trailed 7-5. It would officially get away from them after RHP Luis Contreras and LHP Ethan Small (who clearly continues to scuffle) gave up three more runs combined in the next half inning to complete the final score. Three Quick Strikes: 1) OF Sal Frelick extended his on base streak to 37 games (!!) with a double and a two-run line drive home run over the right field wall. This is the longest current active streak in the International League and the second longest of the season. I don't know about you, but I am really really looking forward to Frelick's opportunity at the MLB level. He has done everything and more in his 2022 Minor League season and I'm just not sure what more there is to prove. If the plan is to wait for 2023, the Sounds will consider themselves extremely lucky to have him for a hopeful playoff push. 2) A big tip of the cap is in order for RHP Robbie Baker . It's hard to fathom he made his Triple-A debut tonight considering where his stuff was at earlier in the year in High-A Wisconsin. This being said, and I alluded to it in a couple earlier season reports, the stuff is there to succeed at a higher clip. He pitches with violence and a clear competitiveness. He's an absolute gamer. Aside from a lead-off home run blast over the wall in right field he picked it up, as did the gloves around him, and he turned in a successful first outing. As an everyday fan of the Brewers Minor Leagues, it was a proud moment for me to see him make his debut. 3) I rarely ever question Triple-A legendary manager Rick Sweet and his incredible staff but one has to wonder what the thinking was in the bottom half of the eighth inning. RHP Luis Contreras was left in to face multiple lefty bats when Small was clearly available in the bullpen. Contreras gave up a walk, a shift-beating single, and another single before he was pulled for Small...who faced a righty. It may not have meant anything in the end, there was likely a rationale beyond my scope, but it certainly didn't work out. That was the game right there. And, well, sometimes you just take the frustrating loss and move on to the next. Tonight was that kind of night. I am putting full faith in another quality start from AAAA stalwart, RHP Josh Lindbolm . Constantly under the radar. Constantly overlooked. Almost always showing up and shutting it down. Let's knock that magic number down a notch tomorrow. Lindbolm is our man.

  6. In yet another key game in the Sounds deep playoff push, a cellar dwellar again proved to be the thorn in Nashville's side. I don't know what it is, but I have yet to see an easy game played versus Charlotte or Louisville. So it goes in a baseball season. Let's get into the quick recap. Image courtesy of Brewer Fanatic Transactions: 9/19: (late transaction) C Nick Kahle was assigned to the Nashville Sounds from the Biloxi Shuckers RHP Justin Topa was was optioned to the Nashville Sounds by the Milwaukee Brewers Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Louisville (Reds) 10, Nashville 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds' site, game details, please visit and review: Sounds Falter in Louisville - Nashville's Magic Number Remains at Five to Win Division A bases loaded one out situation in the top of the eighth inning fell short when INF Cam Devanney grounded into a first pitch, broken bat, ground ball to the Bats shortstop.

  7. The pitching star on this difficult day was Carolina’s Edwin Jimenez, who yielded just one earned run over six innings, while Patrick Dorrian homered for the third straight game in a close Nashville loss. Thursday’s game balls go to the aforementioned Jimenez and Dorrian, as well as Eduardo Garcia, Jadher Areinamo and Eduarqui Fernandez. Transactions: LHP Justin King activated from High-A Wisconsin’s 7-day injured list LHP Clayton Andrews activated off AAA Nashville’s 7-day injured list and assigned to AA Biloxi (though really moving from rehab work at ACL Brewers Gold) Game Action Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Durham 7, Nashville 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Sounds Lose Battle in Durham Starting LHP Ethan Small (1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 3 BB, 2 Ks) wasn’t able to make it through the second inning, while Durham starter Yonny Chirinos completed his three scheduled innings (coming back from injury), quickly turning this into an entertaining bullpen game. The Sounds’ offense battled back three times, grabbing its first lead 2-1 lead in the second inning without hitting the ball out of the infield. Is that luck? No, it’s actually speed and contact: 2B Patrick Dorrian (1-for-3, HR, walk, 2 RBIs) walked, C Mario Feliciano (1-for-4) and OF Esteury Ruiz (1-for-4, RBI) had infield singles, OF Sal Frelick (1-for-4, double) mixed in a sacrifice bunt and 3B Brice Turang (1-for-3, walk, RBI) added an RBI groundout. However, after RHP Matt Hardy bailed out Small by getting the final out with the bases loaded in the 2nd inning, he himself ran into trouble in the bottom of the third inning, giving up three runs on three hits (including a 2-run jack which Feliciano and 1B Jon Singleton both knew was outta here on contact) and a walk for a 4-2 deficit. Nashville’s second comeback was again immediate, with red-hod Dorrian smacking his eighth homer of the year in the top of the 4th inning, a two-run shot to right field which plated DH/OF Garrett Mitchell (2-for-3, walk, 2 SBs) to knot the affair 4-4. At 5-5 in the bottom of the 8th inning, things unfortunately fell apart when recently-outrighted RHP JC Mejia entered and gave up a leadoff double, followed by two hit batsmen and Sounds’ Manager Rick Sweet getting ejected. Following with two walks to load the bases with Nashville down 7-5, RHP Nash Walters was summoned for his first-ever AAA action, getting a ground out to end the rough inning. Three Quick Strikes and a Foul Ball: The third Sounds comeback came in the top of the 6th inning, when Mitchell singled, stole second and scored on an OF Joey Wiemer (1-for-4, RBI, SB) RBI single to even the game 5-5. Wiemer then stole second base, but got a little greedy and was caught stealing third. Mitchell has 16 stolen bases (caught once) this year, while Wiemer has 29 (caught thrice). Recently-optioned RHP Jake Cousins gave up one run in two innings, while RHPs Zack Brown and Hobie Harris completed one scoreless inning each to keep the game knotted at 5-5. Durham retired the final seven Sounds in order, so the last real chance for Nashville came in the 7th inning when Frelick doubled and Turang walked, but Singleton (just a .617 OPS in August after a terrific 1.071 July) wasn’t able to come through. As long at Small keeps allowing counts to run full, I’m going to keep comparing him to former Brewer Yovani Gallardo. Five of the nine batters he faced in this game went to full counts, contributing to three 2nd inning walks and an early exit after he’d thrown 36 pitches in that particular frame. Friday’s outlook: RHP Dylan File (4.42 ERA) is scheduled to start in Durham tonight, as Nashville aims to grab a 3-1 series lead, with second place Columbus just 2.5 games back of the Sounds. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes (Not Available) Rainout - Postponed Via the Shuckers’ website, rainout details: Thursday Doubleheader Between Biloxi and Chattanooga Postponed After three straight rain-outs, Biloxi and Chattanooga plan to play a Friday doubleheader in Biloxi, Saturday single game and Sunday doubleheader, hoping to only cancel one game for the week. Friday’s outlook: Expect RHP Victor Castaneda (3.94 ERA) and LHP Robert Gasser (3.90 ERA in High-A/AA) to start the two 7-inning doubleheader contests tonight, in the first games of the series. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Lansing 6, Wisconsin 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, details: Cedar Rapids Solo Homer Stops Wisconsin And be sure to watch the detailed video recap put together by Wisconsin’s fine media team: Despite garnering just two hits through seven innings, Wisconsin only trailed 2-0 up to that point thanks to starting RHP Brady Schanuel (3 IP, 2 R (1 ER), 2 H, 4 BB, 1 WP, 1 K) battling through traffic and RHP Zach Mort (4 1/3 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 0 BB, 7 Ks) blanking the Lugnuts over his first four inning of relief work. Unfortunately, the dam which Mort had so firmly held eventually broke in the top of the 8th inning as he conceded three singles and was replaced by RHP Miguel Guerrero (1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 0 BB, 2 HBP, 2 Ks), who gave up another two singles for a 5-0 deficit. Credit goes to the Lugnuts, who’ve struggled most of the year (48-69 record) but really put the Timber Rattlers in their place behind starting pitcher Joey Estes’ six shutout innings of one-hit ball. Three Quick Strikes: SS Eduardo Garcia (3-for-4, double, RBI) produced three of Wisconsin’s four hits, fittingly knocking in their only run with an RBI single in the bottom of the 9th inning. DH/C Jeferson Quero was a welcome sight, returning to action after a 9-day absence, though he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Hopefully OF Jackson Chourio is not far behind him in coming back after recent arm soreness. Even major league rehabber 3B/RF Jace Peterson caught the offensive malaise, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout. He played three innings at third base and three innings in right field before exiting. Friday’s outlook: RHP Israel Puello (5.84 ERA in Low-A/High-A) is scheduled to take the mound in Game Four in Appleton tonight, with the Timber Rattlers needing a win to knot the series 2-2. Carolina Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Kannapolis 4, Carolina 3 Box Score / Game Log Via the Mudcats’ website, game details: Sibrian Stays Hot, but Mudcats Fall 4-3 Carolina will rue this loss, as three key plays which went Kannapolis’ way essentially decided the game. After five innings of stellar work from competing starters 20-year RHP Edwin Jimenez (6 IP, 4 R (1 ER), 6 H, 0 BB, 7 Ks) and 25-year old Dylan Burns, Carolina’s offense finally broke through in the top of the 6th inning when the Cannon Ballers’ bullpen walked three consecutive Mudcats to open the inning. OF Eduarqui Fernandez (2-for-4, RBI) and 2B Jadher Areinamo (2-for-3, walk, RBI) followed with RBI singles to score OF Hedbert Perez and DH/OF Jace Avina (2-for-4, double, walk) to take a 2-1 lead, but Kannapolis escaped further damage by throwing out a Mudcat at home (the first key play) and inducing an inning-ending ground ball double play. When the Cannon Ballers finally put pressure on Jimenez with two singles in the bottom of the 6th inning, Edwin induced a grounder to third base, but 3B Branlyn Jaraba booted it (the second key play) to tie the game 2-2 and extend the inning, which was followed by a two-run double for a 4-2 Kannapolis advantage. After stranding two runners in the 7th inning, the Mudcats put two men on in the 8th inning and C Jose Sibrian (1-for-4, double, RBI) came through with an RBI double to left field (extending his hitting streak to nine games), but only one run would score as Jaraba was thrown out at home (the third key play) with Carolina trailing 4-3. Three Quick Strikes: OF Hendry Mendez (2-for-4, double, walk) led off the 9th inning with a double, reached third base on a ground out, but was stranded there as the final two Mudcats struck out. RHP Alexander Vallecillo (2 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 3 Ks) continued Jimenez’s excellent work by pitching two scoreless innings in relief. 1B Jesus Chirinos will want to forget this game quickly after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts while leaving five men on base in his appearances, including a game-ending strike out on top of being thrown out at home in the 6th inning. Friday’s outlook: Expect 22-year old RHP Jeferson Figueroa (6.68 ERA) to get the start and once again try for his first organizational win and even this week’s series in Kannapolis 2-2. Figueroa’s been getting the strikeouts (79 Ks in 64 2/3 innings this year), but it hasn’t translated to success quite yet. We hope that you enjoy the Minor League Link Report.

  8. Carolina came closest to victory, but stranded ten men in a tough loss. Nashville battled back to tie the game twice, but couldn’t snatch a win. Wisconsin mustered just four hits in a 6-1 defeat. The pitching star on this difficult day was Carolina’s Edwin Jimenez, who yielded just one earned run over six innings, while Patrick Dorrian homered for the third straight game in a close Nashville loss. Thursday’s game balls go to the aforementioned Jimenez and Dorrian, as well as Eduardo Garcia, Jadher Areinamo and Eduarqui Fernandez. Transactions: LHP Justin King activated from High-A Wisconsin’s 7-day injured list LHP Clayton Andrews activated off AAA Nashville’s 7-day injured list and assigned to AA Biloxi (though really moving from rehab work at ACL Brewers Gold) Game Action Nashville Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Durham 7, Nashville 5 Box Score / Game Log Via the Sounds’ website, game details, and we encourage readers to review each of the affiliate write-ups as part of their Link Report routine: Sounds Lose Battle in Durham Starting LHP Ethan Small (1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 3 BB, 2 Ks) wasn’t able to make it through the second inning, while Durham starter Yonny Chirinos completed his three scheduled innings (coming back from injury), quickly turning this into an entertaining bullpen game. The Sounds’ offense battled back three times, grabbing its first lead 2-1 lead in the second inning without hitting the ball out of the infield. Is that luck? No, it’s actually speed and contact: 2B Patrick Dorrian (1-for-3, HR, walk, 2 RBIs) walked, C Mario Feliciano (1-for-4) and OF Esteury Ruiz (1-for-4, RBI) had infield singles, OF Sal Frelick (1-for-4, double) mixed in a sacrifice bunt and 3B Brice Turang (1-for-3, walk, RBI) added an RBI groundout. However, after RHP Matt Hardy bailed out Small by getting the final out with the bases loaded in the 2nd inning, he himself ran into trouble in the bottom of the third inning, giving up three runs on three hits (including a 2-run jack which Feliciano and 1B Jon Singleton both knew was outta here on contact) and a walk for a 4-2 deficit. Nashville’s second comeback was again immediate, with red-hod Dorrian smacking his eighth homer of the year in the top of the 4th inning, a two-run shot to right field which plated DH/OF Garrett Mitchell (2-for-3, walk, 2 SBs) to knot the affair 4-4. At 5-5 in the bottom of the 8th inning, things unfortunately fell apart when recently-outrighted RHP JC Mejia entered and gave up a leadoff double, followed by two hit batsmen and Sounds’ Manager Rick Sweet getting ejected. Following with two walks to load the bases with Nashville down 7-5, RHP Nash Walters was summoned for his first-ever AAA action, getting a ground out to end the rough inning. Three Quick Strikes and a Foul Ball: The third Sounds comeback came in the top of the 6th inning, when Mitchell singled, stole second and scored on an OF Joey Wiemer (1-for-4, RBI, SB) RBI single to even the game 5-5. Wiemer then stole second base, but got a little greedy and was caught stealing third. Mitchell has 16 stolen bases (caught once) this year, while Wiemer has 29 (caught thrice). Recently-optioned RHP Jake Cousins gave up one run in two innings, while RHPs Zack Brown and Hobie Harris completed one scoreless inning each to keep the game knotted at 5-5. Durham retired the final seven Sounds in order, so the last real chance for Nashville came in the 7th inning when Frelick doubled and Turang walked, but Singleton (just a .617 OPS in August after a terrific 1.071 July) wasn’t able to come through. As long at Small keeps allowing counts to run full, I’m going to keep comparing him to former Brewer Yovani Gallardo. Five of the nine batters he faced in this game went to full counts, contributing to three 2nd inning walks and an early exit after he’d thrown 36 pitches in that particular frame. Friday’s outlook: RHP Dylan File (4.42 ERA) is scheduled to start in Durham tonight, as Nashville aims to grab a 3-1 series lead, with second place Columbus just 2.5 games back of the Sounds. Biloxi Pre-Game Media Notes (Not Available) Rainout - Postponed Via the Shuckers’ website, rainout details: Thursday Doubleheader Between Biloxi and Chattanooga Postponed After three straight rain-outs, Biloxi and Chattanooga plan to play a Friday doubleheader in Biloxi, Saturday single game and Sunday doubleheader, hoping to only cancel one game for the week. Friday’s outlook: Expect RHP Victor Castaneda (3.94 ERA) and LHP Robert Gasser (3.90 ERA in High-A/AA) to start the two 7-inning doubleheader contests tonight, in the first games of the series. Wisconsin Pre-Game Media Notes Final: Lansing 6, Wisconsin 1 Box Score / Game Log Via the Timber Rattlers’ website, details: Cedar Rapids Solo Homer Stops Wisconsin And be sure to watch the detailed video recap put together by Wisconsin’s fine media team: Despite garnering just two hits through seven innings, Wisconsin only trailed 2-0 up to that point thanks to starting RHP Brady Schanuel (3 IP, 2 R (1 ER), 2 H, 4 BB, 1 WP, 1 K) battling through traffic and RHP Zach Mort (4 1/3 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 0 BB, 7 Ks) blanking the Lugnuts over his first four inning of relief work. Unfortunately, the dam which Mort had so firmly held eventually broke in the top of the 8th inning as he conceded three singles and was replaced by RHP Miguel Guerrero (1 2/3 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 0 BB, 2 HBP, 2 Ks), who gave up another two singles for a 5-0 deficit. Credit goes to the Lugnuts, who’ve struggled most of the year (48-69 record) but really put the Timber Rattlers in their place behind starting pitcher Joey Estes’ six shutout innings of one-hit ball. Three Quick Strikes: SS Eduardo Garcia (3-for-4, double, RBI) produced three of Wisconsin’s four hits, fittingly knocking in their only run with an RBI single in the bottom of the 9th inning. DH/C Jeferson Quero was a welcome sight, returning to action after a 9-day absence, though he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Hopefully OF Jackson Chourio is not far behind him in coming back after recent arm soreness. Even major league rehabber 3B/RF Jace Peterson caught the offensive malaise, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout. He played three innings at third base and three innings in right field before exiting.

  9. Brandon Woodruff last pitched for the Brewers on May 27 and hit the Injured List with a right ankle sprain. He pitched last week for Triple-A Nashville and worked 2 2/3 innings giving up one run on two hits and striking out seven. Last night for the Timber Rattlers Woodruff was stretched out further working 5 innings with the exact same statistical results. He threw 65 pitches and his next start could come back in the big leagues. Wanting to find some additional infield depth, Milwaukee made a move to acquire Patrick Dorrian from the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations. Dorrian was a 12th round pick by the Atlanta Braves back in 2014. He has played 327 minor league games but yet to make a big league debut. Dorrian has a .762 OPS across his professional career.
