Class AAA Tacoma had its game suspended by rain last night at Cheney Stadium. Here’s Mike Curto’s blog discussing it further.

Class AA Jackson was roughed by the Blue Wahoos of Pensacola, 10-1. Ramon Morla’s solo homer accounted for the Generals’ only run. Here’s Jackson’s game notes for tonight’s game with Huntsville.

No surprise here:  LHP Cam Hobson was named Southern League Pitcher of the Week for April 28-May 4. During the week, Hobson went 1-0, while tossing 13.0 consecutive scoreless innings over 2 starts. Hobson limited opponents to a .191  (9×47) average, while walking 2 and striking out 4. He picked up his 3rd win of the season on April 28 at Mobile, after allowing 5 hits and  struck out 2 in 6.0 shutout innings. He recorded a no decision on May 3 vs. Pensacola, despite leaving with a 1-0 lead after 7.0 innings.  Overall this season, Hobson is 3-1 with a 2.52 ERA (10 ER, 35.2 IP) in 6 starts with Jackson.

Class A High Desert fell short of a series sweep, losing 9-3 to Visalia. Tyler Marlette hit a solo homer for the Mavs.

Class A High Desert lost 10-3 at Wisconsin. The LumberKings gave up six runs in the first inning as starter Rigoberto Garcia gave up all six runs and never made it out of the first inning. Burt Reynolds had two doubles in the loss.

As expected: OF Austin Wilson was named Midwest League Player of the Week, April 28-May 4. Wilson drove in a career-high 6 on May 3 at Wisconsin (2×5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 6 RBI). He is 1 of 21 minor league players to record at least 6 RBI in a game this season, but the first in the Midwest League to accomplish the feat. He is also the first LumberKings player to record at least 6 RBI in a game since Blake Ochoa (2×3, 2 R, 2 HR, 7 RBI) drove in 7 runs on July 24, 2010 at Lansing. Overall during the week he hit .375 (9×24) with 6 runs scored, 3 doubles, 1 triple, 2 home runs, 11 RBI and 3 walks in 7 games. He currently ranks 2nd amongst all Mariners farmhands with 24 RBI this season.
