Rays Down On The Farm: August 25

A recap of the minor league action.

Jared Wickerham

Triple-A Durham Bulls (83-51)

In what might have been his best start of the year, Jake Odorizzi shut down Norfolk in Durham's 3-0 victory. In his ninth win of the year, Odorizzi lasted 8.0 scoreless innings, allowing three hits, walking one, and striking out eleven. The Bulls made the most of their hits, scoring three runs on only two hits. They did walk four times as well.

Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (66-66)

Victor Mateo made history on Saturday, pitching a rare nine inning no hitter, the second no hitter of his career. The only baserunner to reach came on a walk in the first inning. In his second game, Delmon Young collected his first two hits. Cameron Seitzer hit his fifth home run of the year while Todd Glaesmann went 3-4.

Advanced Class-A Charlotte Stone Crabs (63-61)

Charlotte defeated Jupiter 3-0 in a game that lasted only five innings thanks to some untimely weather. Rivero picked up a complete game, allowing no runs on four hits, a walk, and three strikeouts. Richie Shaffer went 2-2 with a double and Jeff Malm hit his 13th home run.

Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (76-54)

Bowling Green easily defeated Fort Wayne 7-0 thanks to a home run from Justin O'Conner and some solid pitching. For O'Conner, it was his 14th home run of the year. Ryan Dunn went 3-4 while Oscar Hernandez recorded his first hit in a Hot Rods' jersey. Blake Snell allowed no runs in three innings, but command was once again an issue for the young southpaw; he walks four batters, though he did strike out six as well. Stone Speer pitched 4.0 clean innings in relief.

Short Season Class-A Hudson Valley Renegades (31-33)

Hudson Valley's offense kept up its torrid pace in the Renegades 7-4 victory over Lowell. The Renegades scored seven runs on eleven hits. John Alexander went 3-3 with a double. Jaime Shultz went 3.0 scoreless innings in the start.

Rookie Princeton Rays (22-40)

Yoel Araujo had another big day, leading Princeton to a 9-3 victory. After hitting two home runs on Friday, Araujo went 2-4 with a home run and a double. All together, the Rays managed 13 hits, including a double, two triples, and three home runs. D.J. Slaton pitched the minimum requirements for a quality start while Mario Fernandez and Isaac Gil held Bristol scoreless out of the bullpen.

Rookie GCL Rays (24-32)

The Rays late rally came up just short in their 5-4 loss to the O's. After a five run fourth inning for the O's that gave them a 5-0 lead, it looked like the Rays were out of it. However, they scored a run in the fifth and one in the sixth. In the bottom of the ninth, the Rays scored two more runs, but that is all they could manage. Jose Paez, Kean Wong, Nick Ciuffo, and Adderly Rose all had two hits. Christopher Crisostomo was touched up the fourth inning as all five runs were charged to his name.

Star of the Day: Victor Mateo pitched the second no-hitter of his career.

Goat of the Day: Christopher Crisostomo ran into trouble in the GCL Rays' loss.
