Mariners minor league report, June 4 — Jabari Blash blasts three homers for Tacoma

Class AAA Tacoma

Jabari Blash

Jabari Blash

Jabari Blash has plenty of power. That’s never been a question. It’s just been a matter of him tapping into that power and finding a consistent approach to get more contact at the plate. The power was on display last night in El Paso. The big outfielder blasted three homers in a 13-4 win.   Xavier Nady had three hits and Logan Morrison in the run-fest.

Here’s video of that third homer.  And Mike Curto has a photo blog of the stadium in El Paso.

Class AA Jackson

Patrick Kivelhan had a pair of doubles to lead the Generals to a third straight win.

From the report: The Southern League announced that Jackson Generals SS Ketel Marte and RHP Stephen Kohlscheen have been announced to the North Division All-Star team. Each will represent Jackson at the All-Star Game in Chattanooga at AT&T Field on June 17. Kohlscheen and Marte will be making their first All-Star appearance in any level of their professional career. 

Class A High Desert

The Mavericks opened their seven-game road trip with a 5-2 loss to San Jose. Jabari Henry had two hits and drove in a run. Starter Min-Sih Chen lasted just 3 2/3 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits with a walk and five strikeouts.

Mavs earn Cal League player of the week awards:  D.J. Peterson was named California League Player of the Week, while LHP Tyler Pike earned the league’s Pitcher of the Week award, for May 26-June 1. Peterson hit safely in all 7 of the Mavericks games last week, batting .467 (14×30) with 7 runs scored, 2 home runs, 7 RBI and 3 walks. He recorded at least 2 hits in each game from May 29- June 1, his longest consecutive multi-hit game stretch in his career. Peterson finished 4th in the league in average, T6th in runs scored and T7th in home runs. Pike along with relievers Mark Bordonaro and Blake Hauser combined on a no-hitter as High Desert defeated Rancho Cucamonga 5-0 on May 28. It marked the 2nd no-hitter in club history (also: 8/21/2006 at Inland Empire; also combined) and first at Mavericks Stadium (also first affiliated with the Mariners organization). Pike (6.0,0,0,0,2,8) tied his career-high with 8 strikeouts (last: 8/26/12 at AZL Brewers), but did not factor into the decision after leaving the game after 6.0 innings with the score tied 0-0. 

Class A Clinton

The LumberKings had an off day.
