MLB Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers Game 1

Today the Diamondbacks return home to Chase Field to face a LA Dodger team that has been under performing for their expectations after adding $170+ million dollars in salary to their roster. Today the Dodgers would start Reigning CY Young winner Clayton Kershaw 12-8 against the Dbacks  Ian P Kennedy12-11. Both pitchers would pitch one of their best games on the season.

Former Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw would go 7 innings giving up 1 run on 3 hits and 5 strikeouts. IPKwould have an even better night going 7 1/3 innings allowing 4 hits and 0 runs with 6 strike outs.

IPK Ian Kennedy

IPK would get the win tonight when the only run the Dbacks would score would come off of a error from Hanley Ramirez  when he threw the ball away on a Paul Goldschmidt infield hit. So the story tonight was Pitching, Pitching, & more Pitching as the Dbacks win game one of the 2 game series 1-0. With JJ Putz out with lower back tightness the save would go to David Hernandez his 15th of the year.

AAA Reno Aces vs Omaha Storm Chasers game 1

The Reno Aces would open game one of the PCL Championship series with the most dominating playoff offensive performance in club history. The Aces would blow the Storm Chasers out of the ball park by winning this game 13-1. #1 pitching prospect Trevor Bauerwould start the night a little slow giving up a run in the 2nd and walking 5 guys by the 2nd inning but pitches out of a bases loaded jam in the 2nd.

#1 Pitching Prospect Trevor Bauer

Bauer would last 6 2/3 innings giving up 3 hits and 1 run to earn the win and improve to 2-0 in the post season. For Omaha their top prospect Wil Myers was held hitless in this game where his team needed him one of the most. The Aces had 5 home runs on the night as Ryan Budde hits 2 HR with 3 RBI’s. Mike Jacobs, Ryan Strieby, and Tyler Kuhn all hit home runs on the night.

Catcher Ryan Budde with 2 home runs

Every hitter in the Aces line up record at least one hit in tonights game as the Aces collect 15 hits on the night. The Storm Chasers Top Ace pitcher Jake Odorizzi looses the game giving up 9 runs on 9 hits. The Aces continue to find ways to win ball games without some of their top prospects.

AA Mobile Baybears vs Jackson Generals

The Baybears loose the first game of the AA championships to the Generals 8-1 in a game they were held scoreless for 8 innings tonight as James Paxton gets his 2nd win of the post season lasting 7 1/3 innings giving up 4 hits and 1 run. Chase Anderson goes 5 1/3 innings giving up 4 runs on 5 hits and the loss. The star of this game has to be Generals Johermyn Chavez who goes 2 for 4 on the night scoring once and had 1 home run and 5 RBI’s on the night.

Rookie Affiliate Missoula Osprey vs Ogden Raptors

The Dbacks Rookie Affiliate Missoula Osprey send pitcher Chris Thomas to the mound to square off with Ogden’s Miguel Sulbaran and for the first 2 innings it would be a pitchers duel. Sulbaranwould get yanked early after giving up 3 doubles in the 3rd and a double and a home run in the 4th to loose the game 4-3.

Pedro Ruiz offensive player of the game

Offensivly the player of the game goes to Pedro Ruiz of the Osprey who went 2 for 4 scoring once with a double and 1 RBI on the night. The Osprey win the game in front of 1308 fans at home. a late push by Ogden would stall in the 7th as they go hitless in the final 2 innings.

Codey Harrison:  A Texas Rangers shortstop prospect tops our list of the top-50 MLB prospects. Jurickson Profar is so highly thought of by scouts, that they believe the Rangers may end up trading 23-year-old 2-time All-star shortstop, Elvis Andrus. Profar has all five tools (hit, power, speed, glove, and arm) and he’s proven he knows how to use all five. He’s currently raking in AA Frisco at only 19 years of age, posting monstrous numbers of .297 AVG, .371 OBP, .500 Slug, 22 doubles, 7 triples, 12 home runs, and 44 walks to 59 strikeouts. Most believe he will be a gold glove caliber top, or middle of the order run producing machine that is a perennial All-Star. Time will tell on this prospect. But in a minor leagues full of “can’t miss” prospects, Profar gets out top vote at this stage of the season.
