Dodgers 9/13/11 Minor League Report - Quakes Shutout, Bow Out

Minor League Player of the DayChris Reed - 5 IP, 4 Hits, 1 Run, 7 K's.  Reed took the loss as the Quakes were eliminated from the playoffs on Tuesday, but was very impressive in the longest outing of his career.  I didn't get any radar readings or hear how he was mixing his pitches, but based on his stats I'm guessing he had good stuff.  Great way for him to head into the offseason.

HiA The Quakes were one of the hottest teams in the California League in 2011, but on Tuesday Rancho was eliminated from the playoffs by the Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres) via a 1 - 0 loss.  The shutout defeat was obviously an anticlimactic ending to a great season, and the offensive output on this night was the exact opposite of how the team hit all season long.  The Quakes led the league in almost every offensive category during the regular season, but were limited to just 2 hits in their final game of the year.  Blake Smith doubled and Angelo Songco singled, but that was it.  The news was better on the mound, however, because 2011 1st round pick Chris Reed was very effective as he allowed just 4 hits and 1 run over 5 innings while striking out 7.  Bret Montgomery pitched the final 3 innings and was even better, facing the minimum over 3 innings with 4 K's.  At the end of the day is was 3 straight singles in the 4th that got the Storm the win.

Rookie Ogden The Raptors outhit Great Falls (White Sox) on Tuesday, but 14 of Ogden's 15 hits were singles and the result was a 9 - 7 loss in game 1 of the Pioneer League Championship.  The Voyagers were the opposite of the Raptors in that they made good use of their hits by crushing 4 homers and scored in 6 different innings.  No Ogden pitcher was safe as all 4 hurlers were touched up for at least 1 run.  Ryan O'Sullivan started the game and gave up 7 hits and 5 quick scores in 3 frames, then Juan Noriega has his worst outing since joining the Dodger organization as he allowed a homer and 2 runs.  Jason West and Yimi Garcia finished the game with 2 innings each and gave up a run while striking out 3.  At the plate, Ogden could almost single at will but failed to come up with the big extra base hit to win the game.  Noel Cuevas went 4 for 5 and Scott Schebler had 3 hits, but neither drove in a run.  Joc Pederson and O'Koyea Dickson had 2 singles each and both brought home a run, while catcher Chris O'Brien finished the game with 3 RBI's

Rookie Arizona – Season over

DSL – Season over

Coming up - The Raptors are the only Dodger minor league affiliate still alive, and even Ogden is barely hanging on as they must win the next two games on the road to capture the Pioneer League Championship.  Wednesday is an off day for the club, and on Thursday they will send Derek Cone to the mound to try and extend the series.
