Mariners minor league report, May 7 — Rainiers pitch a shutout

Class AAA Tacoma got outstanding pitching from starter Jordan Pries and relievers Stephen Pryor and Logan Bawcom, combining for a seven-hit shutout in a 7-0 win over Reno.  On the offensive front, Nick Franklin went 3-for-5 with a home run (video).  Franklin has hit safely in 17 of 20, batting .363 (29×80) with 13 runs scored, 5 doubles, 5 home runs, 19 RBI, 10 walks and 2 stolen bases.

Class AA Jackson  lost its fifth straight game, falling to Huntsville 5-0. Starter Jochi Ogando struggled again, going just 2 2/3 innings and giving up five unearned runs on four hits with four walks and two strikeouts. The Mariners promoted right-hander and U of Washington alum Andrew Kittredge to the Generals from High Desert today. He was 2-0, with a 5.40 ERA (11 ER/18.1 IP), 18 strikeouts and 2 walks in 10 relief appearances for the Mavericks. Kittredge has appeared in games for Jackson in 2012 and 2013 posting a 1-3 record, with a 5.40 ERA (16 ER/26.2 IP) in 21 relief outings.

Class A High Desert picked up a rare shut-out win in the Cal League, rolling to a 11-0 win over Rancho Cucamonga. Starter Matt Anderson tossed six scoreless innings, while Gabriel Guerrero, Dario Pizzano and Patrick Kivlehan all homered in the win.

Class A Clinton lost 4-3 at Burlington.  A questionable call on a stolen base attempt by Burt Reynolds in the ninth inning proved costly.
