Royals on the Farm 5/17

AAA - Omaha: stupidwestcoastgamei'mnotstayinguptofinish

* I'll recap it tomorrow. Alex Gordon was named PCL Hitter of the Week after hitting 11-22 with 3 2B, 3 HR, 10 RBI and 7 RS over the week. 1B Kila Ka'aihue will rejoin the O-Royals when they return home on Thursday. Blake Johnson started tonight and got shellacked before getting tossed in the 2nd, but it's 5-4 Vegas in the middle innings thanks to a grand salaaaaaami from Irving Falu, who chose a fine time for his 1st homer of 2010. Anthony Lerew starts Tuesday's game.

AA - NW Arkansas: Naturals 4, Tulsa 0 (4-hitter)

3B Moustakas 2-4, HR (8), 3 RBI (29), K, RS -- .370
2B Giavotella 2-4, 2B (8), RS -- .293
RF Orlando 2-3, 2B (4) -- .239
CF D. Robinson 1-4, RS, SB (22) -- .299
1B C. Robinson 1-4, 2B (9), K, RS, E (5) -- .261

Santiago 7 IP, 4 H, 3 BB, 4 K -- W, 2-3, 2.25 ERA
B. Hardy 2 IP, BB, 4 K -- SV, 3, 0.75 ERA

* Mario Santiago had a good start and the Naturals broke their losing streak. Clint Robinson doubled and scored on an error in the 2nd before the Rocks left 2 in scoring position. Mike Moustakas hit a 2-run homer in the 3rd for his 8th homer of the season to make it 3-0. Santiago worked out of a bases loaded jam in the 6th and Moustakas singled in a run in the 8th to make it 4-0. The first 2 reached on Blaine Hardy in the 9th but he proceeded to strike out the next 3 for his 3rd save. Tulsa SP Ching Lung Lo took the loss with 3 runs (2 ER) over 4 IP to fall to 0-1. 1B Kiel Roling had 2 hits for the Drillers. The Naturals are 22-14. As "Anonymous" pointed out in a comment on yesterday's post, Mike Montgomery got pulled early Sunday because of a rain delay. I shoulda figured that one out.

A-Adv. - Wilmington: rainout

* The game will be made up as part of a Tuesday doubleheader. Ivor Hodgson and Chris Dwyer will start for the Rocks. P John Lamb got the call up from Burlington and will start Friday. He was 2-3 with a 1.58 ERA, 43 K/17 BB in 40 IP for the Bees. P Jairo Cuevas was put on the DL, I guess, May 11, which the team site acted like was news to them. P Alex Caldera was honored as Carolina League Pitcher of the Week for May 10-16 after his 11 K start.

A - Burlington: off day

* A 3-game home set with the Clinton LumberKings (19-19, A Mariners) starts Tuesday. The Bees are 13-24 and 9 games out.
