Down On The Farm: April 5

A recap of the minor league action.

It was not a good day for Wil Myers.
It was not a good day for Wil Myers.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (19-10)

The Bulls, backed by a three run first inning, defeated the Pawtucket Red Sox by a score of 4-1. Durham plated three runs in the first while sending nine batters to the plate. Leslie Anderson's double plated two runs. That is all the offense the pitching would need as JD Martin, Kirby Yates, and Josh Lueke held the Red Sox to one run on eight hits and one walk.

Double-A Montgomery Bulls (17-12)

The Montgomery Biscuits defeated the Pensecola Blue Wahoos 8-3 on Saturday. Todd Glaesmann slugged his sixth home run of the year, while Riccio Torrez notched his third. Enny Romero earned his first win (and decision) of the year, although it wasn't pretty. He lasted five innings, and though he only allowed one run, he walked five batters. Todd Glaesmann led the offense, going 3-4 with a double and a home run. Though he is not walking much, Glaesmann has cut down his strikeout rate (sub-20%), is now hitting .267, and is hitting for lots of power. He has been one of the few Rays prospects to show much offensive ability this year.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (8-20)

The Stone Crabs keep finding ways to lose. This time it was an 8-6 loss to the Jupiter Hammerheads. For once, the Stone Crabs offense showed life, collecting 11 hits. However, the pitching let them down due to some awful relief performances. Jesse Hahn continued his dominance, pitching three scoreless innings. However, Jake Floethe, Jacob Partridge, and Shay Crawford allowed eight runs in their six innings.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (19-9)

While Port Charlotte keeps finding ways to lose, the Hot Rods keep finding ways to win, edging Clinton 3-2. Granden Goetzman hit his first home run of the year, a two run shot. Marty Gantt drove in the other runner. Eduar Quinonez pitched into the sixth inning, allowing only one run. Nick Sawyer earned the save, recording the final out.

Player of the Day: Todd Glaesmann gets the nod for his offensive showing.

Goat of the Day: Jake Floethe has struggled in relief of Jesse Hahn this year.
