Minor League Roundup - 5/18

Matt Harrison threw a no-hitter while Neftali Feliz turned in yet another gem for Clinton on Sunday afternoon. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's minor league action.

AAA: Oklahoma 0 – (@) Memphis 1
L – Loe (2-3)


Steve Rowe (2.91 ERA/.283 BAA) tossed another solid spot-start on Sunday by hurling five scoreless innings. He allowed four hits, didn't issue a walk, and struck out three.

The RedHawks were limited to just four hits in the game. Catcher Kevin Richardson (2/3) singled twice in three at-bats.

Jason Ellison (1/2, 2 BB) and Nate Gold (1/4) had the club's only other hits.

The Oklahoma offense combined for 14 strikeouts.

Kameron Loe surrendered one hit – a solo home run – in three innings pitched. He struck out one.

AA: Frisco 2 – San Antonio 0 (7 innings/Game 1)
W – Harrison (3-1)


Matt Harrison's (3.15 ERA/.237 BAA) no-hitter was obviously the story of the day. The left-hander tossed 120 pitches in the seven-inning effort, walking six and fanning five.

Ben Harrison and Emerson Frostad each went 1-for-2 with a double.

Steve Murphy (1/2, BB) and Max Ramirez (1/3) each singled.

Just 30 minutes after tossing a no-hitter, the ‘Riders were held to only one hit by Missions pitchers Manny Ayala and Gabe DeHoyos.

Frisco's only hit came on a first-inning single off the bat of Max Ramirez.

Pitching on short rest, Trey Hodges lasted just two innings, giving up four earned runs.

Right fielder Grant Gerrard (.293/.349/.490) was 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI.

Shortstop Davis Stoneburner (2/4, 2B) also had a pair of hits.

Left-hander Kasey Kiker yielded five runs on eight hits in six innings. He struck out eight without giving up a walk. Although he has a 5.67 ERA through six Cal League starts, Kiker has posted an impressive 25:7 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Dan Sattler allowed one run in two innings in his first High-A appearance. The Purdue product fanned two.

A: Clinton 6 – (@) Cedar Rapids 5
W – Feliz (4-1)
SV – Dennis (1)
HR – Moreland (3)


Neftali Feliz surrendered his first earned run since April 21, but he was still more than solid. The 20-year-old prospect allowed only one run on three hits in six innings, punching out six without walking a batter.

Ever since he issued five walks in two-thirds of an inning on April 12, Feliz has walked just nine in 36.1 frames.

The L-Kings beat Angels prospect and Metroplex native Jordan Walden, though they didn't hit him particularly hard.

First baseman Mitch Moreland had the big blow off Walden with a two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning. It was his only hit of the day.

Shortstop Andres James singled twice while DH Tim Smith singled and drove in a pair of runs.
