Game 89 + Minors Rewind: Kuma Krush

0a009427986818_ee18b9cc88_z== Twins have no answer ==

We’ve done this before with Hisashi Iwakuma and the super-slo-mo freeze-frame, but it’s so much fun, we’ll just do it some more.

ik1cik1dDon’t need to add much to that.


Mike Zunino and Michael Saunders hit solo home runs.

  • Mariners affiliates scoreboard here.
  • General Jackson homers in Arizona!  The first pro dinger for Alex Jackson.  He also walked, and is now hitting .325/.378/.550 in his first 10 games.  I’m thinking he won’t be in Arizona too long (though his K% is pretty high).
  • My goodness, Kingsport scored eight in the 8th to defeat Pulaski, 16-11.  That can’t have felt good.  But a guy that we have touted — Gianfranco Wawoe — had three hits and a walk.
  • Justin Smoak — officially a minor-leaguer again, you know — went 4-for-5.  And with Smoak and Jesus Montero on the roster, our man Ji-Man Choi continues to see time in left field.  He’s struggled to find his stroke since returning from suspension, though.
  • John Hicks has been heating up for Jackson.  He had a homer and a single Monday, and is .333/.421/.515 in his last 10 games.
  • And RH reliever Matt Brazis got a well-deserved promotion to Jackson after pitching extremely well at High Desert.  He went 3.2 IP with 1 ER in his initial outing after Tyler Pike only lasted 2.1 IP.
  • High Desert lost badly, but it was another banner night for Jabari Henry, who homered and added three singles.  Henry has 16 homers and is hitting .309/.415/.590.  He also has 40 walks.  California League, yes.  But those are the kind of numbers that put Kyle Seager and Brad Miller on the map.  Except Henry has more homers.
