8/17/10 Minor League Report – Garcia Walks Off With Winning Homer


AAA – Starter Tim Corcoran picked up the win in his game to improve to 6 - 8, but his ERA is still a ridiculous 6.86 for the season.  Ramon Troncoso pitched in relief and allowed 2 walks to go along with an earned run in 1.1 innings.  On offense, Russell Mitchell got back on track with a 3 for 5 effort, and Jamie Hoffmann drove in 2 runs.  Ivan De Jesus Jr. also got in on the action by going 2 for 5 with a double. 


AA – Off day


High A – The 66ers scored 4 times in the 8th inning to pull out a rare come from behind victory.  Most of the damage in the 8th inning was the result of Alfredo Silvero’s RBI triple and Scott Van Slyke’s 2 run homer.  Tony Delmonico also had 2 hits in this game.  Tim Sexton was the starting pitcher for Inland Empire and did OK, allowing 6 hits and 3 runs over 6 innings of work.  Geison Aguasviva then threw 2 innings of shutout relief for the win, and Matt Sartor picked up the save despite a sloppy 9th inning.


A – Off day


Rookie Ogden – For once it wasn’t Landry or Akins providing the heroics for the Raptors.  Instead, it was Jonathan Garcia who hit a walk off 3 run blast to give Ogden the win over Billings in what had been a tie game.  Speaking of Garcia, if you don’t subscribe to ESPN the magazine, I suggest you pick up the latest copy because Garcia is actually in the issue (along with Carlos Frias and a few other Ogden players, as they have a short feature on the Raptors and the families that house them).  The offense actually hammered 3 homers in this game.  Beside Garcia’s winner, there was a solo shot by Blake Dean and a 2 run tater for Jake Lemmerman.  Red Patterson was decent as the starter for Ogden, but it was reliever Logan Bawcom who really shined on the mound.  Bawcom tossed 3 shutout innings in which he only allowed 2 hits and didn’t walk a batter, and he was rewarded with the win.
