Manager’s report from Advanced Instructional League (#1)
Timber Rattlers manager Matt Erickson is managing a combination of Brewers and Mariners minor league players in Arizona during the Advanced Instructional Leagues. He has agreed to send in reports on how the Brewers minor leaguers are playing in those games. I’ll be posting those reports to the blog.
Here is his report on the first game of their season, a 6-0 win (in 7 innings) over a combination of Rangers/Royals prospects*:
- Won 6-0 behind solid pitching and defense today.
- Brewer’s pitchers go a scoreless 4 IP (Jungmann, Arnett, Lintz, Medlen).
- Defensive report:
- Walla had an OF assist throwing out a runner at 2b (9-6).
- Shaw made a nice power feed to 2b for DP with runner stealing on pitch (4-6-3).
- Vucinich made a nice play on a slow roller for 5-3.
- Berberet gunned down a runner attempting to steal 2b with a 1.89
- Offensive report:
- In the 3rd Shaw singled to CF and scored from 1b on a 2 run double.
- Berberet added a 2 out RBI single for 3-0 lead.
- In the 6th, Walla led off with a double, moved to 3b on a good read [on a] 6-3 [groundout], and scored on a balk from the pitcher to make the score 5-0.
- In the 7th, Mittelstaedt hit an RBI single to RF for the 6-0 final.
