Mariners minor league report, June 8

With the live draft blogs, I’ve been slacking a little on the minor league reports. So we’ll get those going again and find some consistency as the players like to say.

Class AAA Tacoma

The Rainiers went 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position in a 7-2 loss to Albuquerque at Cheney Stadium. Xavier Avery led off the game with a solo home run and had three hits in the game. Xavier Nady and Jesus Sucre each had two hits. Right-hander Jordan Pries threw 6 2/3 innings, giving up three runs on six hits with a walk and seven strikeouts. The Isotopes line-up had old friends  Trayvon Robinson (2 hits, 2 RBI, Alex Liddi  (solo home run) and Carlos Triunfel (3-for-4, RBI) in it.

  • Here’s some video of Jabari Blash making a nice catch.

Class AA Jackson

The Generals gave up eight runs over the final five innings to lose 9-3 to Birmingham. Jackson had 11 hits inthe game. John Hicks went 3-for-4 with a double and two stolen bases for Jackson. Forrest Snow got the start and pitched 5 2/3 innigns, giving up five runs (four earned) on eight hits with three strikeouts.

  • Here’s video of Ketel Marte’s two-run double.
  • Here’s a nice feature on Patrick  Kivlehan from Josh Lemons of the Jackson Sun.
  • Generals’ broadcaster Chris Harris has his weekly column.

Travis Witherspoon homered and Tyler Smith went 3-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in the loss. Tyler Pike worked five innings, giving up three runs on four hits with three walks and eight strikeouts.
