Shortening the writeups today, probably just boxes and bullets the next two days as my roadtrip heads east from Western PA to Central NY for games in Syracuse and Auburn… and a trip to Cooperstown.

Pawtucket 5 Syracuse 4
• Stammen (ND) 6IP, 5H, 3R, 2ER, 2BB, 4K, HR
• Balester (H, 5) 1IP, 0H, 0R, 2BB, K
• Solano 1-3, R, SAC, PB
• Lombardozzi 1-4, 2RBI
• Bynum 1-4, R, HR, RBI

Ordinarily, getting four runs on six hits in a single inning is a good thing. When it’s the only six hits of the game, not so much. Pawtucket’s pitchers were otherwise good while the Chiefs defense faltered late with two errors in the 8th in a 5-4 loss.

Richmond-Harrisburg — PPD
Oh, look: Rain in Richmond! For third time ’11, the Sens-Squirrels matchup has been postponed there. It will be made up today on July 23 as part of a day-night, 1:05/7:05 doubleheader with two 7-inning games.

Frederick 4 Potomac 1
• Rosenbaum (L, 4-4) 5IP, 6H, 4R, 1ER, 3BB, 4K, HR
• Holland 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0BB, 2K
• Bloxom 3-4, 2B, RBI
• Hood, 1-4, R, 2B

Similar to Syracuse, it’s great when your 3-4 hitters get four hits. Not great when those are the only four hits of the game, as Potomac fell 4-1 to Frederick, reducing the P-Nats lead over the Keys to a ½ game once again.

West Virginia-Hagerstown — PPD
It’s a doubleheader in Western Maryland with two “sevens” between the Power and Suns, with game one featuring a matchup of aces in Jameson Taillon and Taylor Jordan.

Jamestown 8 Auburn 1
• Dupra (L, 1-1) 4⅔ IP, 7H, 4R, 3ER, 0BB, 5K
• Mirowski 2#&8531; IP, 2H, 1R, 1ER, BB, 2K
• Perez 2-4
• Miller 1-4, 2B, RBI

Since I might not have the time for a next-day “Last Night In Auburn,” I wrote up what I saw Last Night In Jamestown.

GCL Cardinals 17 GCL Nationals 6
• Baez 2⅔ IP, 4H, 4R, 4ER, 3BB, 4K, HR
• Lee 1IP, 1H, 0R, BB, 0K
• W Ramos 3-4, R, 2B, BB
• E Martinez 2-4, 2R, 3B, HR, 4RBI, BB

The missed extra point didn’t come back to haunt the G-Nats as a nine-run 8th turned an 8-6 slugfest into a 17-6 beatdown. No position players pitched, in case you were wondering. And presumably, no animals were harmed either.

DSL Nationals 7 DSL Rangers 4
• Moscat (W, 1-1) 8⅔ IP, 7H, 4R, 2ER, 4BB, 6K
• Kl Rodriguez (S, 1) ⅓ IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K
• Ruiz 2-4, 2R, 2B, 2RBI
• W Rodriguez 2-4, R, HR, 2RBI
• Read 1-4, R, HR, 3RBI

Felix Moscat nearly went the distance, allowing four runs (two earned) over eight and 2/3rds innings as the DSL Nationals beat the division-leading DSL Rangers 7-4 and improved their record to 16-17.

  1. So, if I were Rizzo these are the moves I would make in the near future.

    Cut Stairs, Purchase Antonelli, 60 Day DL LaRoche
    DL Burnett, Purchase Romero, 60 Day DL Kimball
    Cory VanAllen to AAA
    Josh Johnson to AAA
    Testa to AA
    Jeff Kobernus to AA
    Manno to A+
    Jeff Kobernus to A+
    Hendry Jimenez to A
    Richard Mirowski to A

  2. Jeff, you have Kobernus to AA and A+.

  3. I completely forgot about Testa. Nice to see this trade aquisition is working out so far. As a 25 year old in A+ essentially dominating his opponents, seems a promotion is in great order.

  4. If Lannon goes on the DL who would be the favorite for a call up?

    • It would most likely be Gaudin (off the DL), imo; He’d go to the bullpen as the LR, and Detwiler would move back to the rotation.

  5. Another 2011 draft signing in the fold – Nicholas Lee (LHP, 21yo) threw a mop-up inning for the G-Nats yesterday. That’s 22 of 51 under contract, with five weeks remaining.

    • Thanks for paying attention to this BinM, but it begs the question, what about the 5 players we drafted who were in the college World Series and expected to sign after that was over, Bryan Harper among them.

  6. The Day/Night double header is not tonight but actually July 23rd. Tonights double header begins at 5:35 with 4:00 gates for anyone travelling to Richmond to see the Senators.

  7. BinM : is there an up to date signing list anywhere?

  8. does anyone have a website to show who signed this years draft for the nats

    • Guys, remarkably the Draft Tracker is up to date. i think it’s Springfield fan who handles it but in terms of a reliable website devoted to it, don’t think there is one.

      Brian NFA was even able to find out what some of the signing bonuses were, but I can’t find them.

    • Baseball America does but it’s not free.
