Withrow Wilts / Wallach Rises

With the K group going to the mound, high expectations abound among the TBLA prospect faithful based on what happened last week when the same group toed the rubber and wheeled off a gazillion strike outs. Not one of the five pitchers could replicate what they did in their debut last week. Brett Wallace started the night off well enough, throwing another solid game but when Withrow crashed and burned in the 3rd inning the trend was set. Elbert was next and couldn't get into the fifth inning. Chad Billingsley took note and while he got into the sixth inning it came at to large a price. Aaron Miller finished the night with an excellent effort.

Games Scores last week for this Group

Elbert - 72, Withrow-61, Miller-59, Wallach - 73

Yesterday

Elbert -33, Withrow - 21, Miller -60, Wallach - 59

Game Score is a metric devised by Bill James to determine the strength of a pitcher in any particular baseball game. To determine a starting pitcher's game score:

  1. Start with 50 points.
  2. Add 1 point for each out recorded, so 3 points for every complete inning pitched.
  3. Add 2 points for each inning completed after the 4th.
  4. Add 1 point for each strikeout.
  5. Subtract 2 points for each hit allowed.
  6. Subtract 4 points for each earned run allowed.
  7. Subtract 2 points for each unearned run allowed.
  8. Subtract 1 point for each walk.

Our top pitching prospect Withrow now owns the lowest game score of the season. It is possible that will remain the lowest game score all season. Hard to be worse then that. Aaron Miller with two very consistent starts.

We will have to put the K group to bed as the most K's this group could muster was six from Wallach. It was a far cry from the K numbers they put up last week.

AAA - Elbert barely managed four innings. Hector Luna was his devil but walks continue to bedevil him.  Jay Gibbons smacked two home runs including a walk off to give Link the win after Link had blown the save. Schlichting, Travis pitched three perfect innings in relief of Elbert to keep the Isotopes in the game for Gibbons heroics. A few more games like that and Schlichting could find himself in the major league bullpen.

AA - All eyes were on Withrow but within one inning those eyes were blinded with disbelief when he was shelled hard. The Lookouts couldn't pitch and couldn't hit last night losing 15 - 2. Sexton and Withrow combined to give up 11 earned runs in six innings of work.

High A - While the upper level studs stumbled, Aaron Miller did the job. It was not the dominating game he had last week but he managed to pitch six innings of one run ball. Pedro Baez tied the game in the bottom of the 9th on his first hit in 2010. The game was won in the bottom of the 10th on a wild pitch as Paul Koss picked up the victory. Robert Boothe pitched two excellent relief innings giving up one hit with four K's. Paul Koss followed Booth to pick up the extra inning win by also pitching two excellent relief innings, mimicking Booth by giving up one hit and 3 K's. Together Booth/Koss threw four innings of two hit ball with no walks and 7 K's.

A - Great Lakes won 2 - 1 behind Brett Wallach's solid pitching and Galvez's three hits. Wallach has not allowed an earned run in two starts. In total Wallach has gone 10 innings with 14 K's.
