Mariners’ minor-league report, May 31

Here is today’s Mariners’ minor-league report.

For Tacoma, it’s getting to be a familiar story (and a pleasant one for Mariners’ fans): Dustin Ackley, Mike Carp, Alex Liddi and Johan Limonta keep raking. (So does Josh Bard, but, alas, he’s no longer in the “prospect” category.

Ackley had two more hits, including a double, in Tacoma’s 8-5 win at Las Vegas and is hitting .421 (16-for-38) over a nine-game hitting streak. Liddi was 3-for-4 with a double and is hitting .438 (14-for-32) over an eight-game hitting streak. Carp hit his 14th homer and extended his hitting streak to 15 games, during which he’s hitting .365 (23-for-63). Since April 23, Carp has raised his average from .172 to .312. And Limonta, with two more hits, now has a .331 average.

At Double-A Jackson, which won 7-4 over Montgomery, Jake Shaffer had three more hits, including his ninth homer, and is now hitting .348. Rich Poythress had a grand slam, his sixth homer, and now has 31 RBIs. Erasmo Ramirez worked seven innings, giving up four hits and four runs in the victory. Ramirez actually walked two, doubling his total in his previous 55 innings.

For High Desert, red-hot Dennis Raben was 3-for-3 and is hitting .474 (36-for-76) over his last 19 games, raising his overall average to .319. Vinnie Catricala, with two more hits, is hitting .367.

Clinton got swept in a doubleheader, but got a strong starting effort in the second game from Forrest Snow (seven innings, four hits, one run, five strikeouts). In the opener, James Paxton struck out seven in five innings.
