Angels Farm Daily 6/9: Entire Farm Shut Down, Tropeano Hurt

New, comments

I heard that the Angels stole all their runs from the farm last night. True story.

Due to the sad state of affairs down on the farm, we bring you a picture of better times.

Triple-A: Salt Lake Bees

Starter Alex Sanabia did his best, allowing just one run over his four innings of work, but the offense must have left their bats in their host families' houses, recording five singles and one double on the night. One piece of good news: Vinnie Pestano pitched two innings in relief and struck out two.

All of that pales in comparison to the news that Nick Tropeano is dealing with rotator cuff tendinitis right now. Godspeed, young man. Check out Jeff Fletcher's article on the matter. Also from that article: Recently promoted reliever Trevor Gott has yet to give up a run. We got Gott!

Double-A: Arkansas Travelers

The offense must have forgotten their bats in their host families' houses (Hey, it was a great joke the first time and I believe in recycling). Starter Kyle McGowin only gave up two earned runs, but the Travs' lineup only recorded five hits, so there wasn't much chance of a win for the starter last night.

Class A Advanced: Inland Empire 66ers

Things started out well with a two-run top of the first, but the Stockton Ports (OAK) dropped a big ol' six-spot in response in the bottom of the first. Harrison Cooney took this loss on the chin, and deservedly so, as he only went 4.1 innings, gave up nine runs (eight earned), surrendered eight hits and allowed four walks. Yuck.

Class A: Burlington Bees

The Bees had an off-day yesterday, and they start a homestand against the South Bend Cubs (CHC) tonight. Justin Anderson will look to make it two in a row, as he takes the bump for Burlington.

Rookie: DSL Angels

Sigh. The Big Boy Angels stole the Li'l Angels' mojo last night. I guess the streak had to end at some point, I just wish it wasn't at the hands of the Rangers' DSL team.
