White Sox Minor League Update: June 23, 2018

Brilliant pitching performances from Jordan Stephens and Jimmy Lambert won the day

Dashing Ace: Jimmy Lambert went eight strong for Winston-Salem.
Winston-Salem Dash

Toledo Mud Hens 2, Charlotte Knights 1

Jose Rondon: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Eloy Jimenez: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 0 K

Matt Skole: 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Casey Gillaspie: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K

Dustin Garneau: 1-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Jordan Stephens: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 9 K **MVP**

Aaron Bummer: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

Thyago Vieira: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Charlotte falls again, after another day of no offense. Mason Robbins drove in Matt Skole for the only run for the Knights. Eloy added another hit, but it was a weak dribbler to third. Meanwhile, Jordan Stephens was on fire, as he lowered his ERA to 3.45. He threw six innings of no-run ball, for a 73 game score. Thyago Vieira also added a shutout inning after Aaron Bummer gave away the Knights lead. However, Vieira walked a batter for the first time in eight games.

Birmingham Barons 6, Montgomery Biscuits 3

Joel Booker: 1-for-5, 1 HR, 2 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Luis Basabe: 0-for-3, 2 BB, 0 K

Zack Collins: 0-for-2, 3 BB, 0 K

Danny Mendick: 2-for-5, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K

Jameson Fisher: 2-for-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Alex Call: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 3 K

Dane Dunning: 3 23 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 4 K

Dane Dunning did not have a good game tonight, as he left the game in the fourth inning with an apparent elbow injury. He only allowed one run, but his command was atypical, with four walks. Joel Booker continued his hot streak with a home run, but he did not reach multiple hits. Zack Collins was able to reach base three times via walk, and Jameson Fisher had his best game of the new season. He drove in and scored two runs off of two hits to help the Barons win.

Winston-Salem Dash 5, Down East Wood Ducks 3

Luis Gonzalez: 1-for-3, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 SB

Luis Robert: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Blake Rutherford: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K

Micker Adolfo: 1-for-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 0 BB, 2 K **MVP**

Gavin Sheets: 2-for-4, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K

Jimmy Lambert: 8 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 11 K

Tyler Johnson: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Big time, Jimmy-Tim Lambert leads the the Dash to another win, as they start the second half 3-0. He went eight strong innings with no walks, leading to a 68 game score. Lambert was recently put on MLB Pipeline’s Top 30 White Sox prospects despite having had a disappointing finish to the first half. With this start, he was able to lower his ERA below 4.00, to 3.95. Meanwhile, Micker Adolfo provided the big hit, crushing a three-run homer in the fifth inning to take the lead. The Dash kept it for the remainder of the game, as Tyler Johnson made his High-A debut and earned the save.

Delmarva Shorebirds 4, Kannapolis Intimidators 0

Luis Curbelo: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Craig Dedelow: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 0 K

Tate Blackman: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Justin Yurchak: 0-for-3, 0 BB, 0 K

Evan Skoug: 0-for-3, 0 BB, 1 K

Carlos Perez: 2-for-3, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Yosmer Solorzano: 4 23 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

The I’s got blanked by the Shorebirds for their first loss of the second-half. Yosmer Soloranzo was not a victim of a barren offense, though, as he allowed four runs on eight hits in less than five innings. The I’s were limited to three hits, two by Carlos Perez, and no walks. There were really no highlights from this terrible game.

Great Falls Voyagers

AZL Brewers 10, AZL White Sox 5

Cammilo Quinteiro: 1-for-5, 0 BB, 3 K

Kevind Maldanado: 0-for-5, 1 R, 0,BB, 1 K

Lency Delgado: 1-for-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K **MVP**

Sam Abbott: 0-fir-3, 1 BB, 1 K

Taylor Varnell: 4 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 7 K

The Sox struck first in the first inning, with a three-run lead capped by a two-run homer in the first by Lency Delgado. However, Taylor Varnell and Ramon Pineda quickly gave away the game in the third and fifth innings. The Sox offense was able to record nine hits, but only scored five runs.

DSL Reds 6, DSL White Sox 5

Jefferson Mendoza: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 1 K

Omar Martinez: 0-for-3, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K

Jerrick Francees: 3-for-4, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Cristofer Melendez: 5 23 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 9 K

The DSL Sox lose again, in another close game. Cristofer (awesome way to spell that) Melendez went the longest of any starting pitcher I have seen from the DSL, with 5 23 innings pitched. He allowed three runs, with only five runners on base. His ERA is now 4.02, with 20 strikeouts in 15 23 innings. Jerrick Francees had his best game so far with the Sox. His 3-for-4 performance raised his batting average to from .172 to .242 after a five-day hiatus from action. The DSL team cannot stop from getting in their own way, with another error-heavy game: The defense committed three errors on the day, as that is a main contributor to a 3-16 record.
