Happy Saturday Cardinals fans! It was another busy day in the minor leagues as the big club continues to make moves bringing up Tyler Lyons and sending Sam freeman back to Memphis. Kolten Wong is still hitless at the major-league level, now 0-4 after a pinch hit appearance tonight. Here’s what happened around the Cardinals system tonight.
Memphis Redibirds (AAA): Lost 5-4 to Omaha
Jermaine Curtis got two more hits and Blazek took the loss.
Springfield Cardinals (AA): Lost 11-10 to Midland
The Cardinals scored five runs in the ninth to tie the game. Ruben Gotay went 4-5, but Bo Taylor hit the walkoff winner for the Rockhounds off of reliever Kevin Thomas.
Palm beach Cardinals (A): Lost 1-0 to Charlotte
Kyle Hald only gave up one run to the Stone Crabs, but it was enough as PB was shut out. Alex Mejia had two of the Cardinals six hits.
State College Spikes (A): Won 5-3 over Jamestown
SC starter Nick Petree pitched well and gave up only one run in six innings. Alex De Leon and Matthew Young went deep to spark the Spikes’ offense.

I’ll be back in St. Louis tomorrow and back to watching the games as intently as ever. Sorry for the lack of tweeting/interacting, but all will be back to normal tomorrow night. PREACH ON, my friends!
