Mariners minor league report — April 20, 2014

Full report: 04.20.14 Mariners Minor League Report

The Rainiers were rained out again. They are playing two seven inning games today at Cheney Stadium, starting at 1:35 p.m. Right-hander Jordan Pries, who was called up from Class AA Jackson, will get the start. It may seem odd, but I’m missing the rain of the Northwest …. just kidding.

Class AA Jackson lost 3-2 to open up its five-game homestand. The Generals were 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Check out this play by Ketel Marte at shortstop.  Marte has hit safely in 13 of 15 games with an at-bat, batting .383 (23×60) with 11 runs scored, 5 doubles, 1 RBI, 6 walks and 2 stolen bases

Class A High Desert couldn’t complete the series sweep of Lancaster, losing 7-1. The Mavericks got just three hits in the loss.

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Class A Clinton rolled to a 9-1 win, scoring eight runs in the top of the 10th. How did they do it?
