813Area has new update 14 hours ago Rays prospects and minor leagues: Cronenworth makes pitching debut
The college two-way star finally made his pro debut as a pitcher Saturday. I don’t want to say it was inevitable that Jake Cronenworth would end up pitching professionally, but didn’t it feel possible when the Rays added Brendan McKay and Tanner Dodson in back-to-back drafts, indicating they’re interested in two-way players? Except for 2018, he’s hit well professionally, but when he was drafted, it was a bit of a surprise that it was as an infielder and not a pitcher. Triple-A Durham Bulls (25-16) Durham closed with four straight runs in a 4-3 win over Rochester. Nick Solak’s RBI single in the fifth started the comeback, and in the seventh, he tied the game with a solo home run. An inning later, Nate Lowe’s bases-loaded walk gave the Bulls their first lead. After Jake Cronenworth made his professional mound debut with a scoreless first inning, Ryan Merritt allowed three runs in four innings. 2B Nick Solak: 3-for-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI (.909)PH Nate Lowe: 0-for-0, 1 RBI, 1 BB (.850)LF Jason Coats: 3-for-4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI (.858) RHP Jake Cronenworth: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 1 K (0.00)LHP Ryan Merritt: 4 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K (7.67) Durham’s site offers this recap. Double-A Montgomery Biscuits (27-15) Montgomery was shut out by Jacksonville, 4-0. The Biscuits were hitless with runners in scoring position and left 10 on base. Riley O’Brien allowed all four runs. RF Jesus Sanchez: 1-for-3, 1 BB (.792)DH Brendan McKay: 1-for-3, 1 HBP (.464) RHP Riley O’Brien: 6 IP, 6 H, 4 R (3 ER), 0 BB, 5 K (3.86) Class A-Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (21-21) Charlotte couldn’t get out of an early hold in a 7-4 loss to Clearwater. The Threshers went up 1-0 in the first and led 6-0 through five innings. Paul Campbell allowed four runs in four innings, and Tanner Dodson allowed two in three frames. In the sixth, Carl Chester’s two-run homer capped a three-run inning, and the Stone Crabs scored in the seventh to pull within two before an insurance run was allowed in the eighth. SS Matt Duffy: 0-for-2, 1 BB, 1 HBP2B Vidal Brujan: 2-for-4, 1 R, 1 RBI (.745)C Ronaldo Hernandez: 0-for-3, 1 RBI (.602)RF Moises Gomez: 0-for-4, 1 K (.642)LF Garrett Whitley: 0-for-4, 2 K (.739) RHP Paul Campbell: 4 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K (5.49)RHP Tanner Dodson: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K (4.02) Charlotte’s site offers this recap. Class-A Bowling Green Hot Rods (24-18) Bowling Green scored eight unanswered runs in an 11-3 rout of Lake County. Each team scored three times in the first, but Chris Betts’ solo homer in the third started a run of eight straight runs that put the game away. Kaleo Johnson also went deep, hitting a three-run home run in the fourth. In his first start of the season, Cristopher Sanchez allowed three runs in four innings, and Alan Strong struck out seven in five scoreless frames out of the bullpen.

USF Oracle has new update
1 day ago Corrick's gritty performance not enough as Bulls' season ends in Tallahassee
Georgina Corrick greets catcher Macy Cook following an inning against South Carolina on Saturday at the NCAA Regional in Tallahassee. Corrick combined for 340 total pitches over the weekend. ORACLE PHOTO/BRIAN HATTAB TALLAHASSEE — Entering a do-or-die game with South Carolina in the NCAA Regional on Saturday evening at JoAnne Graf Field in Tallahassee, it was fair to wonder how much Georgina Corrick was going to be capable of. After all, the sophomore pitcher had gone the distance against that same Gamecock team just a day prior. Corrick was also coming off her worst performance of the season — a six-run, five-walk performance against No.4-seed FSU earlier in the day, which the Bulls lost 12-1 in five innings. Corrick left no doubt what she was capable of in the nightcap. The Bulls’ ace went the distance and struck out seven in USF’s 2-1 loss in 10 innings. “Knowing George, and knowing where she’s been this year,” coach Ken Eriksen said, “for her to go back-to-back from [Friday] to [Saturday] and earlier [Saturday], was just absolutely one of the gutsiest performances I’ve seen from a USF pitcher in a long, long time — if not one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen.” Between the two complete games against South Carolina (38-18) and the 2.1 innings she threw before being relieved by senior Nicole Doyle against FSU, Corrick threw a combined 340 pitches. Part of the reason she even went back into the pitching circle for the second South Carolina game was her motivation to face the Seminoles again. “I think we went into that game [against FSU] and we got punched in the mouth and we didn’t punch back, and I wanted to face them again, Corrick said. “I wanted to make sure that there wasn’t a chance that we wouldn’t be in that final game. So I wanted to go out there and do it for my team and do it for myself and make a stand for USF that we came here to compete — and I think we showed people that we did.” It was a simple decision for Eriksen — put out the lineup that gives his team the best chance to win. And that lineup, despite the obvious fatigue, included Corrick. “It really wasn’t a hard decision,” Eriksen said. “You always make the lineup out as a coach to give your team the best chance to win, because if you don’t, then you don’t have the confidence in the team that you’re putting the best team on the field every single day.” Lindsey Devitt's leadoff homer in the first inning was the Bulls' only run against South Carolina on Saturday. ORACLE PHOTO/BRIAN HATTAB The game against FSU (53-8) was one to forget. In addition to getting run-ruled, the Bulls gave up four consecutive homers in the fifth inning, turning what was already an almost insurmountable lead into what was the ultimate 11-run difference. The homers marked the first time a team had hit four-straight homers in NCAA softball tournament history. But Corrick and the Bulls had to have a short memory, as the loss dropped them to the loser’s bracket to face the Gamecocks, who had defeated Bethune-Cookman in between USF’s games. Things started great for the Bulls (42-18) thanks to senior Lindsey Devitt, who hit a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning. An RBI single in the top of the second tied the game 1-1 — which is where the score would remain for the next seven innings until Corrick gave up a leadoff homer in the 10th. In the process, Corrick and South Carolina pitcher Dixie Raley worked masterpieces. The two pitchers combined for 20 innings, three runs, 12 strikeouts and 346 total pitches. “Another classic South Carolina and South Florida matchup, and being the third game of the day on a Saturday, we got some fierce competition, something you would expect for a 2/3 matchup,” Eriksen said. “This game came down to inches, and their pitcher Dixie threw a phenomenal game, but so did Georgina as she was on fumes heading into this game.” Saturday’s losses ended the Bulls’ season and, according to Eriksen, was the conclusion of a gritty season which saw the Bulls, who lost a lot of talent to graduation after last year, still win over 40 games. “Everybody was, ‘How are you going to do this year?’” Eriksen said. “I said, ‘I’ll tell you in May.’ We did phenomenal. … I’m just tickled pink. And it hurts right now. It’s going to hurt. But, when they come back in the fall, I think there will be a realization of, ‘holy smokes.’ “It was a year that’s going to go down in history for USF softball as one of the gutsiest performances.”    
813Area has new update 1 day ago Rays: 2, Yankees: 1 - Clutch HRs fuel Rays win
It is so nice to have Meadows back After a disappointing and frustrating 4-3 loss, the Rays will look to rebound against Masahiro Tanaka by sending Blake Snell on the mound; a rematch of an equally frustrating loss on Sunday where nothing weird happened. Suit back up, and take back first. https://t.co/tJKotKCnmg#RaysUp pic.twitter.com/qlIP5MIDh0— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) May 18, 2019 Remember when the Rays out scored opponents in the 1st inning? That didn’t happen. Masahiro Tanaka started the game where he left off on Sunday, striking out all three batters he faced in the 1st inning. Rays did seem to get to him a little better this game, with a few singles sprinkled here and there, but the Rays couldn’t get to Tanaka at all. It also didn’t help that the ump was giving Tanaka all the calls on the edge. Only 2 of those pitches were swung on. The first run of the game came via an wild pitch. Snell got himself into some trouble with back to back hits by Brett Gardner and DJ LeMaheiu and a Luke Voit walk loaded the bases with only 1 out. Snell got out of it (somewhat) with a strikeout of Aaron Hicks and Gary Sanchez, but a wild pitch scored Gardner and made it 1-0 Rays. Kratz let one go by him for a run but he probably went 9/10 blocking bouncing curves and change ups last inning. He’s been pretty solid back there for a guy taking a crash course.— Dan Slaubaugh (@DanSlaubaugh) May 18, 2019 Snell looked great other wise going 6.0 IP with 6 H, 1 BB, 9 K, 1 R. He did have some help thanks to this slick play by Wily Adames. Dominik Vega Hech of a play For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction right? I think that law of physics could be applied to the Rays luck this year. The Rays had that great play by Adames, and in the 6th inning Snell threw what should’ve been an easy play to get Aaron Hicks out, but ended up throwing it away and allowing Hicks to make it to 2nd with only 1 out. Snell was able to get Sanchez to strikeout on a low 96 mph FB, and a single by Gleybar Torres almost scored Hicks from 2nd. Almost. Dominik Vega Freakin laser Austin Meadows with a throw on the money to nab Aaron Hicks, and keep the Rays within 1. That seemed to be the turning point. The Rays didn’t get to see Tanaka in the 7th (finally) and it only took two pitches for them to tie it. We're all tied up Lowe. #RaysUp pic.twitter.com/8u2SUeRxXJ— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) May 18, 2019 Combination of Chaz Roe and Adam Kolerk would get through the 7th, and keep the score tied. Rays didn’t really have any other opportunities, as none of the ground balls hit off of Tommy Kahnle and Zach Britton (after the B. Lowe) HR left the infield. Emilo Pagan took over for the 8th, and set up the Yankees hitters well. Despite giving up an Aaron Hicks single, Pagan got the top of the Yankees order to strike out, including a beautiful pitch sequence of Luke Voit, who after being ahead in the count 2-0, was searching fastball, got three fastballs, and swung through all of them. Rays had to face Aroldis Chapman in the 9th, which lol getting a hit against him. Aroldis Chapman career vs the #Rays - 17.1 IP, 4H, 0R, 3 BB, 30K. This would be a great time for the lefty to allow his first run against Tampa Bay.— Neil Solondz (@neilsolondz) May 18, 2019 And Kevin Cash decided to bring Emilio Pagan out for the bottom of the 9th in a tie game against the Yankees to face Gleybar Torres, Gio “Albert Pujols” Urshela, and Cameron Maybin. Torres struck out. Urshela flied out to deep center, but not after an impressive battle, going 12 pitches. And got Maybin to strike out, sending this game to extras, where the Rays are not lucky going 0-4 in extra innings. Besides the Lowe HR, the Rays hitters have been forgettable, with the Yankees’ Johnathan Holder making very quick work of the Rays in the 10th inning, retiring Garcia, Kiermaier, and Adames on the same amount of pitches that it took to get Gio Urshella out in the 9th. Rays’ bats came alive in the 11th inning when Austin Meadows took an inside pitch and blasted it out of the park to give the Rays a 2-1 lead. Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Getting the lead is one thing. Keeping the lead is another. Rays not only are 0-4 in extra innings. They are 2-8 in 1 run games. BUCKLE UP Showing faith in is closer, Kevin Cash would go to Jose Alvarado, who had .2 IP on 26 pitches and gave up a 2-run lead in last nights 4-3 loss. 1st batter: Luke Voit - Single (Thario Estrada would pinch run) 2nd Batter: Aaron Hicks - Strikeout 3rd Batter: Gary Sanchez - Grounded into double play. Around the Horn Diaz to Lowe to Choi WHEW. Big confidence booster for Alvarado, Rays win 2-1 and are back in 1st place with a half game lead. Charlie Morton will look to get the series win agains the Yankees tomorrow. Game time is 1:05 PM.
