Down on the Farm Miami Marlins Daily Report: June 20th

Down on the Farm Report for the Miami Marlins: June 20th:

The Zephyrs struck out against the Redhawks, DeSclafani was impressive in his Double-A debut, the Hammerheads and Grasshoppers offenses were shut down, and the Muckdogs lost in a blowout.


New Orleans Zephyrs (37-38)  vs. Oklahoma City RedHawks (38-33)

Loss 4-1

Joe Mahoney, 1B: 2-for-4, 2B (1), RBI, SO

Bryan Petersen, RF: 1-for-4, 2B (19)

Matt Neil, SP: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 5 SO

Adam Reifer, RP: 2.1 IP, H, BB, 3 SO

The Zephyrs offense could only muster six hits and struck out 12 times on the evening, as OKC evened the series. The Zephyrs fell to a game below .500 for the season.


Huntsville Stars (29-41) @ Jacksonville Suns (36-33)

Win 2-0

Ryan Fisher, 3B: 1-for-3, HR (4), RBI, R

Danny Black, SS: 1-for-3, HR (2), RBI, BB, R

Anthony DeSclafani, SP: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 5 SO

Grant Dayton, RP: 1.0 IP, H, 3 SO

Ryan Fisher and Danny Black each hit a homer a piece to drive in the only runs for the Suns in the game. Anthony DeSlafani pitched well, making his Double-A debut. He pitched six shutout innings and struck out five hitters. After a successful trip through A-ball for the Marlins organization. If he pitches well in the second half, he could make a cameo in the majors in September.

High Class A:

Jupiter Hammerheads (36-33) @ Fort Myers Miracle (46-22)

Loss 5-2

Ryan Goetz, CF: 1-for-4, 2B (6), R, 2 SO

Austin Nola, SS: 1-for-2, 2B (13)

Josh Hodges, SP: 3.2 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, BB, SO

James Nygren, RP: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 2 SO

Josh Hodges struggled in his 3+ innings of work and the Hammerheads were never really in the game against one of the strongest minor league rosters.

Low Class A:

Greensboro Grasshoppers (33-37) @ Hickory Crawdads (40-31)

Loss 7-0

Jesus Solorzano, CF: 2-for-4, SO

Yordy Cabrera, 3B: 1-for-4, SO

Scott Lyman, SP: 7.0 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 13 SO, BB, HR

Dane Stone, RP: 1.0 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 2 SO, BB, HR

Lyman had an impressive outing, striking out a career high 13 hitters in just seven innings of work. Unfortunately, the Grasshoppers offense were limited to just four hits in the game.


Mahoning Valley Scrappers (2-2) @ Batavia Muckdogs (1-3)

L0ss 14-2

Felix Munoz, 1B: 1-for-4, 2B (3), 2 SO

Austin Dean, LF: 0-for-3, RBI, BB, SO

Justin Jackson, SP: 4.0 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 SO

Patrick Merkling, RP: 0.0 IP, 3 H, 7 ER, 4 BB

The Scrappers really had the pitchers of the Muckdogs scrapping for help, as they posted 7 runs through the first four innings, including seven runs off of Merkling before he was taken out without even removing a hitter.
