Minor League Player of the Day – Scott Schebler (AA) - 2 for 4, 1 HR, 1 walk. It's always nice to hit a homer in an All Star game, and had his team won the game Schebler would have most likely been the MVP.
AAA – The Isotopes were blown away by the Storm Chasers (Royals) on Tuesday in a 13 to 6 loss. Starter Red Patterson allowed 6 runs on 11 hits over 5 innings, permitting 3 homers in the process. Matt Magill wasn't much better out of the bullpen as he gave up 3 more runs while recording just 2 outs, while Juan Abreu and Steve Smith were off their game as well. At the dish both Tim Federowicz and Jeremy Hazelbaker went 2 for 4 with a double, but that was it for the extra base hits. Erisbel Arruebarrena did go 2 for 4, however, and drove in a pair, while Joc Pederson was hitless in 4 at bats.
AA – The North All Stars fell 6 - 4 to the South despite homers by O'Koyea Dickson and Scott Schebler. Schebler got the start in left field for the North and went 2 for 4 with a solo shot, while Dickson connected on a 2-run blast in the 9th to bring his club withing a couple of runs of a comeback. Darnell Sweeney was the other Lookout in the lineup and he went 1 for 3. On the mound Juan Noriega was the lone Chattanooga representative and he got out both batters he faced.
HiA – The California All Stars edged the Carolina League 3 to 2 despite getting no help from the Quake players. Shortstop Corey Seager went 0 for 2 with a strikeout and Chris Jacobs was 0 for 3 with a K of his own. Nobody from Rancho pitched in this game.
LoA – The Midwest League East All Stars were nearly no-hit by the West as they were shutout 7 to 0. Neither Joey Curletta or Kyle Farmer, the only Great Lakes hitters in the lineup, had a base knock for the East, although Farmer was one of the few players to even reach base as he walked. Mark Pope was the only Loon to throw in this game and he was perfect in two-thirds of an inning.
Rookie Ogden – Rained out
DSL – The Dominican Dodgers fell to the Athletics 4 to 1 on Tuesday. Hendrick Clementina went 3 for 4 with a double and Daniel Padilla had a pair of singles, but that was it for the offensive highlights. On the mound starter Dennys Chica actually threw very well as he allowed just 1 hit over 4 shutout frames, striking out 6 and walking nobody. 3 of his 4 relievers allowed runs out of the bullpen, however, which led to the loss.
Coming up – It will be a quiet day on Wednesday as only the Isotopes, Raptors, and Dominican Dodgers play. Jeff Bennett will take the mound for Albuquerque at 10:05 am PST while Jose De Leon will throw for the Raptors, weather permitting.
