MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: June 3

After a tough month of May both Juan Oramas and Keyvius Sampson looked to rebound in June. Oramas was sent down to AA and dominated, but Sampson stayed in AAA and was lit up.

Chihuahuas 4 – Tacoma Rainiers 13

Key Statistics RHP Keyvius Sampson 4 IP, 7 H, 8 ER, 4 BB, 3 K; DH Travis Buck 2-5, 2B, RBI; LF Jake Goebbert 3-4, 2B, 3 RS; C Adam Moore 3-4, 2 2B, RBI.

Prospect Watch: Not the best night for Keyvius Sampson. After five straight solid starts, where he allowed only seven runs in 26.2 innings, he has been hit hard over his last four. Over these starts he has allowed 24 earned runs in only 16.2 innings. While the walks have been disappointing, it is not just his wildness. Sampson has had a .315 BAA and has averaged two homeruns allowed per start. Left-handed batters have nearly a .500 OBP against him, and while right handers are having much more trouble (.211 BA) but he has been far from flawless allowing 19 walks and five home runs. Sampson is making the case to be left off the 40 man.

Missions 3 – Frisco RoughRiders 1

Key Statistics LHP Juan Oramas 7 IP, 2 H, BB, 7 K; LF Rymer Liriano 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI; C Austin Hedges 2-4, RS

Prospect Watch: Who wants to pitch in AAA? No takers? Well after batters hit .302 off Oramas in AAA he was sent down to AA to "work things out." Hint: Maybe this is what we should see happen to Gyorko. Anyway, Oramas was a different pitcher. Oramas needed just 83 pitches to get through seven innings He allowed just three baserunners over his seven innings, and even though the Missions defense committed two errors behind him, he pitched out of both by turning two double plays. From the second to the seventh innings the Oramas allowed just a single hit. Lets see how long Oramas stays in AA before making his return to El Paso.

Storm 1– Modesto Nuts 6

Key Statistics RF Hunter Renfroe 1-4, 2 K; SS Diego Goris 1-4, 3B; CF Alberth Martinez 2-3, 3B; RHP Colin Rea 5.1 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Prospect Watch: After spending the first two months on the disabled list 2013 TinCaps' closer Roman Madrid pitched well on Saturday throwing two perfect innings. Tonight he didn't quite do as well. He allowed two runs on four hits over 2.2 innings. Madrid was an all-star each of the past two years in Eugene and with the TinCaps and it might be too much to assume that he will step right in and dominant the Cal League, it is great to have him back.

The TinCaps had the day off.
