Dodgers 9/6/11 Minor League Report - Baldwin's Bomb Not Enough

Minor League Player of the DayJames Baldwin - 3 for 4, 1 HR, 2 RBI's, 2 Runs.  Baldwin has really struggled in the 2nd half of Ogden's season in terms of his average, hitting just .204 over the past 28 games, but he has done a decent job of keeping up his power numbers up as 6 of his 10 homers have come during that same time period.  Hopefully he hits another hot streak as the Raptors head into the Pioneer League playoffs.

AAA – Season over

AA – Playoffs start Thursday against the Tennessee Smokies.  The pitching matchups for the first 3 games of the series have been announced, and here they are:  Thursday: RHP Stephen Fife vs. LHP Brooks Raley;  Friday: RHP Chris Withrow vs. RHP Ryan Searle;  and Saturday: RHP Allen Webster vs. RHP Trey McNutt

HiA – Playoffs start Saturday against either the Inland Empire 66ers or the Lake Elsinore Storm

LoA – Season over

Rookie Ogden Raydel Sanchez had a solid start on Tuesday, but his bullpen blew the lead and the game as Ogden lost 5 - 4 in their series finale to the Chukars (Royals).  Sanchez allowed just 1 unearned run over 5 frames and did not walk a batter in his final tuneup before the playoffs.  Yimy Rodriguez gave a run in 2 innings of relief, but then the wheels really fell off when Carlos De Aza entered the game and promptly allowed 5 hits, including 2 homers.  At the plate, the offense was paced by James Baldwin who went 3 for 4 with a homer and 2 RBI's.  Kevin Thompson's double was Ogden's only other extra base hit, and Joc Pederson had his hitting streak snapped with an 0 for 3 night.

Rookie Arizona – Season over

DSL – Season over

Coming up - Only one game again tomorrow as the Raptors face the Ghosts in a short two-game series to finish off their regular season.  No starter has been announced, but Ryan O'Sullivan's spot is due up in the rotation.
