Around the Farm 4/22/2019
Thank you for joining as we go around the farm. I try to get these done on a nightly basis for release the next day but with a full-time job and two boys, sometimes it doesn’t happen. But I try my best and appreciate you following along.
Let’s get to it.
Nashville Sounds (5-13)
The Sounds were shutout 5-0 by the San Antonio Missions (Milwaukee Brewers). Corbin Burnes, the Missions starter, only pitched 3 innings and the bullpen did the rest.
Right-hander Richelson Peña (1-3, 5.25) got the start for the Sounds. He pitched 5.1 innings and allowed 4 runs on 3 hits, including 2 home runs, 2 walks and struck out 2.
Brady Feigl (1.08) pitched 1 inning and allowed an unearned run. That came from a fielding error by Nolan Fontana, his 2nd of the year.
The Sounds only managed 4 hits the whole game.
Eli White and Willie Calhoun each had 1 hit and Zack Granite had 2 hits. He went 2-3 and is hitting .268 on the year.
Frisco RoughRiders (11-7)
The RoughRiders completed their first shutout of the year with their win over the Travelers 4-0.
Brock Burke was dealing before his blister resurfaced. He had pitched 4.2 innings and allowed only 1 hit, 3 walks. The strikeouts were plenty for him as he fanned 8. He threw 64 pitches, 38 for strikes. Let’s hope the blister doesn’t become more of an issue.

Jacob Lemoine (2-0, 0.79) picked up his 2nd win of the season after coming in for Burke. He pitched 2.1 innings allowing 3 hits but struck out 3.
James Jones (4.50) earned his 2nd hold pitching 1 inning, allowing 1 hit. He also struck out 1.
Locke St John (0.93) has been locking opposing batters down. He pitched a scoreless inning and allowed 1 hit and struck out 2.
Charles Leblanc, Juremi Profar and Eliezer Alvarez each went 2-4 in their at bats to help the Riders win. Alvarez brought had 2 RBI’s and Brendon Davis had the other.
I’d like to point out that one of my favorites, Josh Altmann went 1-4. I think he will find his power once he gets consistent at bats.
Alex Kowalczyk also deserves a shout out. He went 1-4 with a run but is hitting .375 on the year.
Down East Wood Ducks (13-5)
The Wood Ducks had the day off.
Next up is a 3-game series against the Lynchburg Hillcats (Cleveland Indians).
Hickory Crawdads (12-5)
The Crawdads lost to the Augusta GreenJackets 5-1. The GreenJackets are the affiliate of the Giants.
Tim Brennan (1-1, 2.65) got the start for the Crawdads and pitched 6 innings. He allowed 4 runs on 7 hits, including 1 home run and struck out 3.
Abdiel Mendoza (1.13) pitched 2 innings, allowing 1 runs on 2 hits, including a home run. He walked 1 and struck out 2.
Hever Bueno (0.00) was good in his inning as he struck out 1 throwing 11 pitches in the inning.
Chris Seise went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts. His average is at .276 for the year.
Curtis Terry went 1-4 and is hitting .258
Jose Almonte went 1-3 with a run and a strikeout.
Jonathan Ornelas went 1-2 with an RBI, a walk and a strikeout. He was also caught stealing and is batting .325 on the year.
