Dodgers 8/23/13 minor league report - Five in the winning column as the season winds down

The final days of the minor league schedule upon as five of the six Dodger minor league teams win on Friday night

Minor League Player of the DayAaron Miller (Great Lakes A) - Aaron Miller began his move to a position player this season and it appears that in August, he has begun to hit his stride, last night he homered on a 2 for 4 night, he is in the midst of a 10-game run where he has gone .385/.415/.590 and in August he has put up a .308/.349/.526 line. Miller is doing this as a 25-year old in Low A so it should be taken with a grain of salt but it is nice to see him really begin to hit the ball soundly as the season comes to a close.

AAA – The Isotopes had a four run 8th to lead them to a 9 - 7 win over the Sounds (Brewers). Angel Castro started and went 6, allowing just 3 runs, 2 earned this night. Sean White blew the save but got the win. Peter Moylan pitched the 9th and allowed just a single run to pick up the save. The Isotopes had solid production from Elian Herrera, Tony Gwynn, Scott Van Slyke, Nick Buss and Alex Castellanos. Buss and Castellanos drove 4 and 2 runs respectively. Gwynn had 3 hits and scored 3 runs.

AA – The Lookouts returned to action and defeated the Generals (Mariners) 3-2 in 10 innings. Ross Stripling scattered 7 hits and a walk, struck out 4 and gave up 2 runs in his 6 innings. Carlos Frias pitched 1.2 innings to pick up the win. Joc Pederson hit another home run, his 20th of the season and his fifth since August 15th. Angelo Songco went 2 for 4 and drove in a run.

HiA The Quakes lost a tough one in 10 innings by a 4-3 score against the JetHawks (Astros). Gustavo Gomez pitched 6.1 innings, gave up 3 runs, 6 hits, a walk and 7 strikeouts. Edwin Carl suffered the tough loss when a fly ball fell out of Grider's glove after Casio Grider hit the wall and Delino Deshields scored on the very tough error. Grider was the hitting star too, going 2 for 4 with a triple and drove in two.

LoA The Loons didn't let a 4-run 9th inning comeback by the Lugnuts (Blue Jays) get them down as they won 8-7 in 10 innings. Chris Anderson started and was busy in his 3 innings of work, with 4 hits, 2 walks, 2 runs allowed and 4 strikeouts on his ledger. Brendon Martinez had the best line of the night, 5 innings pitched, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk and 1 strikeout. Rob Rogers blew the save and picked up the win. Aaron Miller and Jeremy Rathjen each homered, Rathjen also drove in 4 runs.

Rookie Ogden – Despite their first two pitchers giving up 7 runs, the Raptors held on and beat the Voyagers (White Sox) with a 9 - 7 win. The real story were the hitters, who pounded out 16 hits, four batters had 2 hits, two of them had 3 hits. Jacob Scavuzzo homered, Joey Curletta went 3 for 5. Jesmuel Valentin and Adam Law each went 2 for 5.

Rookie Arizona – On only 6 hits the Arizona Dodgers defeated the Padres 10 to 4. Nelson Sandoval pitched 3 innings and got the win. James McDonald went 2 for 4, Paul Hoenecke and David Reid-Foley homered.

DSL – No results given, assume weather interfered with the game

Coming up – 2013 2nd round pick Tom Windle will start for the Loons on Saturday, while Garrett Gould will throw for the Lookouts. Stephen Fife returns to starting role for the Isotopes, Freddie Cabrera gets the ball for the Quakes, and Luis De Paula toes the rubber for the Raptors.
