June 20th Minors Recap

It was a light Monday on the KC Royals farm, as both High-A Wilmington and Low-A Lexington are enjoying the All-Star break.

Triple-A Omaha lost their rain-shortened finale in Colorado Springs, 4-2.

The Storm Chasers had taken a 2-0 short-lived 2nd inning lead on a Tony Cruz home run (one of their three hits).

Christian Binford took the loss, as he allowed all four runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out four. Binford allowed two 2-run homers: one in the second and one in the third.

Double-A NW Arkansas lost their first half finale, 5-3 to Arkansas. The series continues tomorrow, but with the game counting towards the second half.

It was another rough rehab start for Kris Medlen, who allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over just three innings. He struck out three in taking the loss.

Fellow rehabber Alex Gordon started in left field and batted second. He went 2-for-3 with a solo home run. On offense for the Naturals, Ryan O’Hearn went 3-for-3 and fell a triple short of the cycle. Mauricio Ramos returned to the lineup and went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI. These three accounted for all of the offense.

Yender Caramo allowed a run on five hits over 3.1 innings of relief. Eric Stout stranded two runners in throwing 2.2 scoreless innings. He struck out four.


Reid Redman made his second rehab appearance with rookie level Idaho Falls, striking out two in two scoreless innings of relief. He threw just 17 pitches, 14 for strikes.


About Jen Nevius

I first became a KC Royals fan way back in 1995 when I attended my first Wilmington Blue Rocks game. I fell in love with minor league baseball then and began following the Royals as former Blue Rocks clawed their way to the big leagues. 3+ years ago I started covering the Royals for Aerys Sports, but since the site has been shut down, I am going out on my own.
