High A Dish: Poreda Needs Some Help

Brett Anderson was uncharacteristically roughed up, Aaron Poreda pitched well and Matt Wieters was at it again in high Class A action.

California League

San Jose (Giants) 12, Stockton (A’s) 2

Lefthander Brett Anderson had his first rough outing of 2008, giving up seven runs (six earned) on nine hits in 2 1/3 innings. The Ports offense was fairly quiet also as Sean Doolittle collected the only extra base hit in his 1-for-4 performance.

Third baseman Ryan Rohlinger hit is second home run of the season, a three-run shot in the seventh. Lefthander Ben Snyder earned his first victory after tossing five strong innings. He gave up one run on five hits while striking out five and walking one.

Bakersfield (Rangers) 6, Rancho Cucamonga (Angels) 4

Righthander Omar Poveda went 5 1/3 innings, giving up four runs on five hits while walking four and striking out six. He got a no decision after the Blaze tacked on a run in the sixth and eighth innings.

Blaze designated hitter Chad Tracy was 1-for-4 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored.

Carolina League

Frederick (Orioles) 3, Salem (Astros) 2, 12 Innings

The Keys were held to five hits and committed three errors, but prevailed anyway in the 12th. Catcher Matt Wieters tied the game with a pinch-hit single in the seventh and Brandon Snyder singled and scored on a Todd Davison base-hit with one out in the 12th frame.

Myrtle Beach (Braves) 6, Winston-Salem (White Sox) 1

In his second start of 2008, lefthander Aaron Poreda gave up only one run on six hits through five innings, but the Warthogs couldn’t show any offensive support. Poreda struck out six and walked one and was stuck with the loss. The bullpen took over in the sixth and gave up five runs in the final three innings.

Outfielder Gorkys Hernandez was 2-for-5 with a double and RBI for the Pelicans.

Florida State League

Lakeland (Tigers) 17, Sarasota (Reds)

The Tigers awakening has trickled down to the high Class A affiliate. The Flying Tigers scored in every inning except the seventh and had 18 hits in their rout of Sarasota. Scott Sizemore and Cale Iorg both picked up their second home runs of the season and had four RBIs.

Righthander Jonah Nickerson was effective for Lakeland, going five innings, giving up two runs on five hits while striking out four. Sean Watson, one of the Reds better pitching prospects, saw his ERA climb to 9.82 as he gave up one run in one inning, but he did also pick up three strikeouts, giving him six in 3 2/3 innings.

Palm Beach (Cardinals) 4, Daytona (Cubs) 3

Lefthander Mark Mulder made his first 2008 appearance in a rehab start with the Cardinals. He threw five innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits.

 Vero Beach (Rays) 3, Jupiter (Marlins) 1

Righthander Jeremy Hellickson simply dealt, again. Hellickson went seven innings, giving up only three hits while striking out 13 and walking none.

Dunedin (Blue Jays) 5, Tampa (Yankees) 4, 12 Innings

Cory Patton and J.P. Arencibia tied the game 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth with back-to-back home runs and Jonathan Diaz drove Jesus Gonzalez in with a single in the 12th. Travis Snider homered in the first, his third of the season, but struck out three times. He is now hitting .283/.327/.565 with 18 strikeouts in 46 at-bats.
