DrB hasn't started one yet, so I figured I'd put this up. And, since I'm the one starting, obviously I'm going to put the Dodgers minor league games in the diary header.
The Great Lake Loons (low-A) played a 7-inning double header today.
Josh Wall started the first, and not well. 3.2 IP, 7 Hs, 4 ERs, 2 BBs, 1 K, 1 HR and the loss. I don't know if anyone here still considers him a prospect in a meaningful way, but they shouldn't.
Clayton Kershaw got the call in the second and was MUCH better than his first outing, though the walk totals were still a touch higher than you'd like. All in all, he had 5.0 IP, only 1 H, 0 Rs, 3 BBs, 7 Ks, to earn the victory. He also picked two people off 1st base. Crazy.
Preston Mattingly played both games, only one at short, and was a combined 1-for-5 with a triple and 2 Ks. He also made a fielding error.
Josh Bell only played the second game and continued to struggle -- 0-for-2 with a walk and a K.
Francisco Lizarraga, who split the games between short and second, stayed right at .500 for the season, going a combined 3-for-6 with a double, K, and GIDP.
More updates to follow.
Anyway, who're some of the better pitchers starting today in the minors? Any exciting updates? Keep the info coming...
