White Sox Minor League Update: August 24, 2018

Is Winston-Salem the only offense left on the farm?

Shut Us Down: Dylan Cease reached his innings limit, bringing his breakout season to a stirring finish.
Birmingham Barons

Jackson Generals 3, Birmingham Barons 0

Joel Booker: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

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

Zack Collins: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K

Alex Call: 0-for-3, 0 BB, 1 K

Tanner Banks: 6 IP, 10 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Matt Foster: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K **MVP**

The Barons could not get an ounce of offense tonight, with only three singles, and when there are only three people on base, it is apparently tough to score. Tanner Banks did about as well as he could. He cruised through five innings, but found two runs of trouble in the sixth. Luis Basabe had one of the three hits, and his batting average had been steadily climbing, to its current point at .257. Other than that, there were not many positives.

Winston-Salem Dash 12, Buies Creek Astros 3

Luis Gonzalez: 2-for-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K

Luis Robert: 1-for-5, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K

Blake Rutherford: 1-for-5, 2 RBI, 0 BB, 1 K

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

Ti’Quan Forbes: 3-for-4, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 0 K **MVP**

Laz Rivera: 0-for-3, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K

John Parke: 6 IP, 11 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

The big difference in this game was situational hitting. The Dash had 11 hits and 12 runs scored, while the Astros had 11 hits but only three runs. John Parke allowed all of the Astros hits, but we able to keep most of his baserunners from scoring. The Dash were on base 19 times, and all but one starter reached base at least once. Ti’Quan Forbes and Luis Gonzalez reached base on hits multiple times. Forbes had one of the five extra-base hits for the Dash, and has his batting average up to .280. Gonzalez is still leading the team, at .316.

Augusta GreenJackets 11, Kannapolis Intimidators 2

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

Steele Walker: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Ramon Beltre: 1-for-3, 1 RBI, 0 BB, 0 K

Yosmer Solorzano: 3 23 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K

Bennett Sousa: 2 13 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Will Kincanon: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K **MVP**

The I’s pitching and defense were not up to par today. The Kannapolis saw 10 runs cross the plate, three of which were unearned. Those three unearned runs came off the back of four errors, so it was a rough day for aesthetically pleasing baseball. Even with the stout bullpen options of Bennett Sousa and Devon Perez, three earned runs crossed the plate in just 3 13 innings pitched. Since the offense did not find much production outside of Ramon Beltre’s RBI single, Will Kincanon was the MVP, with a perfect inning. Everybody else was far from that.

AZL Cubs 6, AZL White Sox 1

Ty Greene: 0-for-3, 0 BB, 0 K

Cabera Weaver: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 2 K

Lency Delgado: 1-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Luis Mieses: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 0 K

Camilo Quinteiro: 1-for-4, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K **MVP**

Kevin Folman: 4 23 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Another game, another team that could not find its offense. The AZL Sox were down for most of the game, a problem that got grave after the Cubs scored five runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Kevin Folman was doing well up until the fifth, and his replacement, Aaron Soto, fared worse, with three runs off of two home runs surrendered. The only offense came from Anderson Comas, when he singled home Camilo Quinteiro.

DSL Padres 7, DSL White Sox 0

Sidney Pimentel: 0-for-4, 0 BB, 1 K

Jose Rodriguez: 1-for-3, 1 BB, 1 K

Daneuris Lagrange: 6 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K **MVP**

The DSL Sox’s miserable season is almost over, and the end could not come quickly enough. The team was shut out today, as they only reached base five times. Jose Rodriguez reached twice, on a double and a walk, and his batting average still tops the squad, at .291. Meanwhile, Daneuris Lagrange finished on a high note, hurling his longest outing of the season for a quality start. But his offense could not help him out.
