J.C. Sulbaran has missed his share of bats since coming over from the Reds, he’s been so good he’s even missing them when they are on the hitters shoulder as the right-hander walked four more in 3.2 innings Tuesday.  That ups his total to 15 walks in 14.2 innings which matches his K total but isn’t quite the 17 runs and 20 hit totals he’s allowed in that time.  The former Red gave up five runs (4 ER) in this one leading to a Naturals loss despite a pair of home runs by Paulo Orlando and Kevin Kouzmanoff.

Wilmington Blue Rocks 5 Frederick Keys 4

Plenty of early runs in this one until the bullpens jumped in and took over to shut things down.  Luckily for the Blue Rocks their international signees Orlando Calixte, Cheslor Cuthbert and Geulin Beltre were supplying the hits and the power to lead their way to a win.  The three signees combined for eight of the teams ten his, four of the teams five driven in while Calixte and Beltre each hit home runs in the first four innings to score five Blue Rocks runs and give starter Andy Ferguson a win.  Ferguson earned the win despite given up four runs in his 6.2 innings of work but did earn six more K’s against no walks to up his K to BB ratio to 80-18 this season.  Reliever Edwin Carl entered in the 7th to finish off the job striking out five of the seven hitters he faced.

Burlington Bees 6 Kane County Cougars 3

Kyle Zimmer tried to lean on his defense Tuesday and that is never a good idea with this defense.  Coming into the game the Cougars had made over 170+ errors leading to 133 unearned runs in just 127 games.  This night would be very similar as the defense would commit three errors which lead to five unearned runs of Zimmer including four that came in the 3rd inning thanks to a throwing errors by Jack Lopez and Michael Antonio to two of the first three hitters of the inning.  With the defense crumbling behind him Zimmer struggled to miss bats getting just 3 K’s in six innings while allowing ten singles.  The 1st round pick was getting plenty of ground balls in general with eleven groundouts and six of his ten hits allowed being ground ball singles.  The Cougars offense couldn’t overcome the miscues on defense scoring just three runs on five hits while falling three games behind the Bees in the Wild Card chase.

Idaho Falls Chukars 5 Billings Mustangs 3

A walkoff win for the Chukars when Diego Goris hit a two run home run in the bottom of the ninth to complete a comeback in Idaho Falls.  Down 3-0 until the 7th the Chukars scored a pair of runs following a throwing error to even the game.  The score would stay knotted until the bottom of the ninth when the former Pirates prospect hit his 11th home run to win it.  Starter Aroni Nina had a decent outing striking out seven in six innings but running into trouble in the 3rd when he allowed three runs on three hits, a couple wild pitches and a hit batter.

About The Author

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that.I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
