Low A Dish: Revere’s Ride

Ben Revere hasn’t stopped hitting since arriving in Beloit, Madison Bumgarner dominated Rome, and Mike Moustakas continued his resurgence.

Midwest League

Prospect Of The Day

Beloit (Twins) center fielder Ben Revere has been a hitting machine since joining the Snappers on April 28. The 20-year-old Revere went 0-for-3 in his season debut, but has collected at least one hit in each of his last eight games. Last night against Lansing (Blue Jays) Revere led off the game with a double and went on to go 3-for-5 with two stolen bases in Beloit’s 6-2 victory. Since his 0-for-3 debut, Revere is 16-for-34 over the last eight games, with multiple hits in six of those games including the last four in a row. Perhaps not coincidently, the Snappers have had a nice turnaround since Revere’s arrival. They went only 8-15 prior to Revere joining the roster and have gone 6-3 since.

Todd Frazier went out with a bang. He started in left field for Dayton (Reds) for the second day in a row and went 3-for-5 at the plate, raising his average to .321, in his last game for Dayton before he was called up to high Class A Sarasota today … Burlington (Royals) shortstop Mike Moustakas homered for the second day in a row, and fourth time in seven games, as part of a 2-for-4 night in which he added a stolen base as well … Clinton (Rangers) DH Ian Gac hit his minor league-leading 12th home run against South Bend (Diamondbacks) .. Wisconsin’s (Mariners) Nathan Adcock, a 20-year-old righthander who was Seattle’s 2006 fifth round pick, turned in a dominating performance against Great Lakes (Dodgers), pitching seven shutout innings on only five hits, with one walk, and nine strikeouts.

What To Watch For Today

Mike Moustakas gets one more shot at the Fort Wayne (Padres) pitching staff in an 11:00 am EDT game … Neftali Feliz is scheduled to start for Clinton against South Bend tonight.

South Atlantic League

Prospect Of The Day

Augusta (Giants) lefthander Madison Bumgarner had the best start of his young career last night against Rome (Braves). Bumgarner pitched six shutout innings, allowed only three hits (one of which was a bunt single), walked one, and set a new career high as he fanned 10 Braves hitters. He didn’t allow a hit after the third inning and no Rome baserunner got farther than 2nd base against him. After struggling a bit in his first three starts, Bumgarner has heated up in his last three, allowing no earned runs over 16 1/3 innings, with a 23-4 K-BB ratio.

Prospect Nuggets

Bumgarner was matched up against Rome lefthander Jeff Locke, who had been hot in is own right over his last couple of starts, but Locke didn’t fare as well, giving up six runs (five earned) on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings to take the loss. Although, Locke’s defense didn’t give him much help by committing four errors behind him … Greenville (Red Sox) right fielder Ryan Kalish hit his first home run of the season … Greensboro (Marlins) right fielder Mike Stanton hit two home runs as the Grasshoppers beat Hagerstown (Nationals) 8-3 … How’s this for a hard luck loss? In Game 1 of the doubleheader between Kannapolis (White Sox) and Lake County (Indians), Intimidators starter Jason Rice gave up a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first, then didn’t allow another hit the rest of the game, but took the loss as Kannapolis fell 3-1. Lake County’s other two runs came in on a couple of RBI groundouts after Rice walked the bases loaded in the second. It didn’t help that Rice was matched up with Ryan Miller, one of the SAL’s hottest pitchers. Miller allowed only one run on two hits over six innings himself … Lake County won the second game of the doubleheader 2-1 even though they only had two hits in that game as well. So just for the record, the Captains swept a doubleheader despite getting only three hits in the two games combined.

What To Watch For Today

Charleston (Yankees) travels to Asheville (Rockies) for a four-game series between the SAL’s two best teams, starting today. Charleston (24-8) leads Asheville (23-10) by 1 1/2 games in the SAL’s Southern Division.
