Royals on the Farm 5/27

AAA: Omaha took an early 2-0 lead but Albuquerque got to SP Danny Tamayo and the Isotopes came away with a 5-2 win. CF Adrian Brown reached on a bunt single to start the game, stole second for his 15th steal of the season, advanced to third on a sac fly by LF Aaron Guiel and scored on an RBI single by 3B Chris Truby. Omaha added a run in the 3rd on a solo HR by Brown, his 3rd of the season. So basically Brown was all their scoring offense with the help of Truby's single. Albuquerque scored 3 in the bottom of the 3rd and added runs in the 4th and 7th while Isotopes pitchers shut down the O-Royals the rest of the game. Tamayo went 5 IP and gave up 4 ER on 10 hits and 2 BB with 2 Ks to drop to 3-3 with a 4.64 ERA. RP Jeremy Affeldt made his second rehab appearance and pitched a perfect inning with 1 K. His ERA remained 0.00. RP Justin Huisman pitched 2 innings and gave up 1 ER on 1 hit and a BB and 3 Ks. His ERA is 3.66. Brown was 3-3 with a BB, double, HR, RBI and 2 RS to improve his BA to .263. The rest of the team combined for 3 hits. DH Justin Gemoll was 0-4 to drop to .326. 2B Luis Ugueto was 1-3 in his first game post-drug suspension to improve to .217.

Omaha is 22-27 and 5 games back of Memphis. Tonight's game features SP Ryan Baerlocher(0-0, 2.70 ERA in 3 1/3 IP) making his first start post-Tommy John surgery against Isotopes righthander Travis Smith (2-1, 6.75 ERA).

AA: Wichita jumped on San Antonio SP Juan Sandoval early with 5 runs in the first 3 innings en route to a 6-2 win. 1B Justin Huber knocked in LF Shane Costa (who had doubled) with an RBI single in the 1st. Huber scored on a single by SS Mike Aviles and Aviles scored on an RBI single by C Mathew Tupman. The Wranglers added a run in the 2nd on a Huber RBI double that plated Costa and scored another in the 3rd on an RBI single by DH Adam Keim for a 5-0 lead. The 6th run was scored in the 8th on another Keim RBI single. Shawn Sonnier came in for Wichita to pitch the 9th and got into some hot water as he struck the first two batters out then allowed the Missions to rally for a run before Trae McGill came in to walk in a run. Nate Hoelscher then came in and got a fly out to end the game. Frank White must have watched the Royals' game Friday night. Anyway, Wichita got a great start from J.P. Howell, who went 6 2/3 IP and gave up only 3 hits and a BB with 7 Ks to move to 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA. RP Barry Armitage went 1 1/3 IP and K'd 1 to drop his ERA to 5.87. He gave up no hits or BBs. Sonnier pitched 2/3 of an inning but was credited with 2 ER on 3 hits and a BB with 2 Ks. His ERA grew to 2.55. McGill had the 1 BB as his ERA remained 4.94. Hoelscher picked up his 1st save with 1/3 IP to drop his ERA to 6.87. Keim was 3-4 with 2 RBI to improve to .333. Costa was 2-3 with a double and 2 RS to improve to .274, Huber was 2-5 with a double, 2 RBI and 3 Ks to improve to .354 and Aviles was 2-3 with a BB, double, RBI and 3 RS to improve to .275.

Wichita is 24-24 and 6 games back of Tulsa. RH Kyle Middleton (5-4, 2.86 ERA) will take the mound for the Wranglers tonight.

High-A: High Desert's high-power offense was again tranquilized by Inland Empire as the 66ers cruised to a 12-0 win and the Mavs were held to 4 hits by 3 66er pitchers. The farthest any Maverick got on the bases was third base, one time, in the second inning. The 66ers scored 2 in the first off SP Chris Coughlin but were silent until late in the game when they broke out for 10 runs in the 7th and 8th innings. Coughlin went 4 IP and gave up 2 R (1 ER) on 6 hits and 0 BBs with 0 Ks as his ERA moved to 5.91. RP Stephen Chamberlain pitched 2 1/3 innings and gave up 4 ER on 6 hits and a BB while K'ing 1 to increase his ERA to 5.97. RP Nate Moore pitched 1 2/3 innings and gave up 6 ER on 7 hits and a BB to balloon his ERA to 4.91. 1B Kila Kaaihue was the only Mav with a good game at the plate as he went 2-4 with a double to improve to .371. 3B Billy Butler was 1-4 to drop to .355. RF Mitch Maier was 1-4 to move to .339 and SS Michael Gaffney was 0-3 to drop to .295. Seattle top prospect Wladimir Balentien had 2 HRs in the game.

High Desert is 24-23 and a game back of Lake Elsinore and Lancaster.

Low-A: Royals pitching prospect Matt Campbell picked up his first win with a great start as Burlington shut out Dayton, 3-0. The Bees got started with 2 in the 1st as SS Edward Lucas hit an RBI single to score 2B Irving Falu and advanced to second on a throwing error. After moving to third on a groundout, Lucas scored on a passed ball. Burlington scored again in the 3rd on an RBI single by CF Alan Moye and Campbell did the rest. He improved to 1-5 as he went 7 IP and gave up only 5 hits and 2 BB while K'ing 6 to drop his ERA to 4.00. RP Chad Blackwell got his 1st save with 2 IP in which he gave up 2 hits and K'd 5 to drop his ERA to 2.95. Falu was 1-2 with 2 BBs to improve to .221. Lucas was 1-4 to drop to .319.

Burlington is 21-26 and 6 1/2 games out of first. Dayton LH Camilo Vazquez (0–3, 5.68) and RH Billy Buckner (3–6, 4.08) lock horns on the mound tonight. In other news, Bees RP Gabe DeHoyos was promoted to AAA Omaha -- so much for High-A and AA. DeHoyos is 2–0 with a 1.52 ERA and 2 saves in eleven appearances this year that included his first career start. In 29.2 innings, he has allowed just five earned runs while walking 11 and striking out 35.
