Omaha Storm Chasers 6 Reno Aces 3

Starter Doug Davis gave the Chasers a quality start in their return to Omaha which helped them earn a win. ¬†Shortstop Tony Abreu kept up his hot hitting going 2 for 4 with a double and 2 driven in to team with his middle infield partner Johnny Giavotella to drive in five Chaser runs. ¬†Reno jumped on Davis in the third getting a walk, three singles and a double to plate three runs to take a 3-0 lead. ¬†The Chasers would jump right back in the bottom half of the inning plating four with a bases loaded single by Gio that scored one and a double by Abreu that pushed two across. ¬†A Wil Myers ground out as part of his 0 for 4 day scored Gio to push the lead to 4-2. ¬†Omaha’s lefty righted the ship tossing a scoreless 4th but the Reno starter and former local Omaha product Zach Kroenke could not do the same giving up two more on a Giavotella single to help Omaha build a 6-3 lead. ¬†Relievers Roman Colon and Vin Mazzaro would take over for Davis in the 7th finishing off the final 3 innings scoreless with just three hits allowed.

Wilmington Blue Rocks 9 Winston-Salem Dash 4

Winston-Salem has one of the few friendly hitting environments in the Carolina League and the Rocks took advantage Wednesday night.  Designated hitter Murray Watts and left fielder Geulin Beltre took the most advantage each collecting a pair of hits while driving in three each.  Watts got the scoring started for the Rocks punching in a pair with his fourth double since joining the Wilmington squad later scoring on a Beltre single.  The Rocks would hold that 4-0 lead until the 7th when their offense would one alive again with a run scoring single from Watts and a two run home run by Beltre to stretch the lead to 7-0.  Starter Matt Ridings would run into problems in the 7th after shutting out the Dash up until that point but would earn the win thanks to the big lead and the bullpen finishing off the job.  Trouble aside Riding 6.1 innings, 5 hit, 3 run effort is pretty solid in that park.

Beloit Snappers 8 Kane County Cougars 6

After Wednesday night Bryan Brickhouse may have learned he doesn’t want to challenge Twins prospect Miguel Sano. ¬†The large and powerful third base prospect connected on a three run home run in the first inning to push Beloit up early and backed it up again in the 2nd with a two run double. ¬†Those five runs put the Brickhouse and his teammates behind the eight ball which lead to back to back losses despite a five run 5th that pulled them within a run. ¬†The Cougars tied the game in the 7th with a Daniel Mateo RBI single but couldn’t hang onto the positives as the bullpen gave up runs in the bottom half of the 7th and another in the 8th to hand Kane back to back losses.

Ogden Raptors 5 Idaho Falls Chukars 4

Starter Sam Selman had his most difficult start since turning pro struggling with his control in his four innings. The left-hander put away seven via strikeout but also handed out five free passes in only four innings of his no decision start.  The Chukars took a 3-1 lead to the 5th inning following a two run home run by Rainier Bello but converted reliever Fernando Cruz struggled mightily giving up four hits, two walks and four runs in the 5th to put Idaho Falls behind.  A solo home run by Diego Goris in the 9th cut the lead to one but they could get no closer dropping the first game of the second half for Idaho Falls.

Elizabethton Twins 3 Burlington Royals 2 F/11

The Royals dropped their third game in a row despite a very nice 7 inning 3 hit start from starting pitcher Yender Caramo.  Second baseman Kenny Diekroeger hit his 8th home run since joining the Burlington squad and outfielder Terrance Gore stole his 19th base of the season.  16th round selection Austin Fairchild continued his struggles walking 2 and allowing a run while not recording an out.

About The Author

Clint Scoles

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.

    Arguelles stuff has never developed as Pregnant said. He’s working with a high 80′s low 90 fastball and an alright change but nothing great with either that or his breaking ball. I’ve heard he also lacks work ethic.

    kcastrofan, Zach lives in the Wilmington area so I don’t he’s seen him this yr, but probably saw him a lot last yr…..also Arguelles has been throwing BP in live games all yr. This start is nothing new. I wish I could help you out w/ the cause but I have never seen him pitch. I have read that his velo hasn’t ever really recovered post surgery. Hope that helps.

    Hey Clint / Zach –

    What is Arguelles body language like of late. It seems he is throwing BP every time out of late. There is always the discussion of (young) foreign players needing time to adjust but his numbers have been dismal. Is it surgery-related? Attitude? No stuff?
