The Matt Morris Report: 7/24/14

The farm system got some good and some bad pitching performances. The latter included Nick Kingham. The GCL Pirates got rained out.

-- Kingham struggled with his control as Indianapolis got stomped by Charlotte, 9-2.  He walked five, just one fewer than in his first seven AAA starts combined.  He also failed to go six innings for the first time since his promotion, lasting just five and a third.  He gave up four hits, struck out four, and was charged with seven runs.  The Indians had just five hits.  Jaff Decker hit his fifth HR.  Andrew Lambo was 1-3.

-- Altoona got hammered by Bowie, 9-1.  Starter Jhonathan Ramos allowed eight of the runs, five of them unearned.  Dan Gamache was 2-4 with a double, but also committed two errors.  Josh Bell was 1-3 with a walk and Alen Hanson 0-3 with a walk.

-- Bradenton lost to Lakeland, 4-3.  Shane Carle gave up four runs, three earned, on eight hits in seven innings.  He walked none and struck out five.  Jin-De Jhang was 2-3 with a triple, Justin Maffei 2-3 and Max Moroff 2-4 with a double.

-- West Virginia lost to Hickory, 4-1.  Buddy Borden allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in five innings.  He fanned seven.  JaCoby Jones was 3-5 with a double and Austin Meadows 2-4 with two doubles.

-- Jamestown took game one of its doubleheader with Batavia, 3-1.  Alex McRae threw five shutout innings against the weak-hitting Muckdogs, allowing two hits and no walks, and striking out six.  Sam Street pitched the last two innings and allowed his first run as a pro.  Kevin Krause was 2-3 with a double.

-- The Jammers got destroyed in game two, 10-0.  Batavia raised its team average six points (to .240) by pounding out 15 hits in six innings.  Jamestown had just two hits.

-- Bristol shut out Pulaski, 5-0.  Starter Junior Lopez threw five innings, allowing two hits and no walks, and fanning one.  John Sever then struck out seven in three innings.  He gave up three hits and a walk.  Michael Clemens struck out two in the 9th.  Carlos Ozuna (pictured) was 3-4, and Candon Myles and Jose Salazar each 2-4.

-- The DSL Pirates shut out the Angels, 6-0.  Nestor Oronel threw five innings, giving up five hits and a walk, and striking out one.  Victor Fernandez was 2-4 with a double.  The Pirates drew 13 walks, three each by Edison Lantigua, Raul Siri and Eliezer Ramirez.
