Dodgers 6/8/11 Minor League Report - Most Boring Day of the Year

New, 69 comments

It was a very slow day for the Dodger minor leagues as a couple of teams were off, and both full season clubs had below average days at the plate.

Minor League Player of the Day Angel Sanchez - 5 IP, 2 Hits, 0 ER, 3 K's.  Sanchez might have had his worst outing of his young season despite allowing just 2 hits, but it was good enough for the minor league player of the day on a weak day for Dodger prospects.  While I'm still not completely sold on Sanchez as a prospect, he lowered his ERA to 1.77, and his batting average against is now just .132 for the season.

AAA – Off day

AA – The Lookouts managed just 4 hits and collected just 1 RBI on Wednesday, but somehow they were able to score 5 runs to drown the Mudcats (Reds) 5 to 3Alfredo Silverio homered and Elian Herrera went 2 for 2, but all the other Chattanooga runs scored on the 3 Carolina errors.  The only other offensive highlight was Brian Cavazos-Galvez's two stolen bases. On the mound, Michael Antonini picked up the win with 6 decent innings during which he allowed 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks.  Josh Wall was great in relief as struck out 3 during 2 shutout innings, then Steven Ames worked around a leadoff single to pick up his 2nd save in AA.

HiA – Off day

LoA Angel Sanchez started for Great Lakes and threw another gem, but his bullpen gave up the lead and the game as the Loons got popped by the Kernels (Angels) 5 to 4.  Sanchez allowed just 2 hits and an unearned run over 5 innings of work, although his 3 walks were a career high and his 3 K's were a career low.  Pete Budkevics is the main one to blame for the blown lead as he gave up 6 hits and 3 runs in just 1.1 innings.  Andrew Pevsner took the loss, however, after he allowed the go ahead run to score in the 8th.  There isn't a whole lot to write about on offense as the Loons collected just 6 singles and a double.  Casio Grider recorded the two-bagger and had 2 RBI's, while Blake Dean's single drove in another one of the runs.

DSL – The Dominican Dodgers rallied for 4 runs in the 7th, but the bullpen gave back all 4 runs over the next 2 innings and the Dodgers lost to the Red Sox 8 to 7.  Six pitchers threw in the game for the Dodgers, and Sawil Gonzalez was the only one who had any success as the threw 2 shutout innings with 4 K's.  At the plate, all 7 of the Dodger hits were singles, and 18 year old Arce Rodriguez led the way with 2 hits in 4 at bats and an RBI.
