The Farm Report: 7/31/11 – At least Staten Island won…

Tampa came up empty against Charlotte, losing 7-0:
Charlotte used four singles in the first to take a 2-0 lead and didn’t let up, adding two more runs in the second.  Tampa had a chance in the top of the second, when Kyle Roller led off with a double to right, but the Yankees couldn’t capitalize on the chance.  The Stone Crabs ended up with a 7-0 victory at the end of the day, as the Yankees could never put together a rally.  Abraham Almonte went 2-4 with a pair of doubles.  Brett Marshall struggled on the mound, going just 5.2 innings and giving up seven runs (six earned) and twelve hits.

Charleston dropped a 5-3 game to Greenville:
The Drive drew first blood, as a couple leadoff walks turned into a couple runs.  The RiverDogs got on the board when Shane Brown singled and scored on a double by Taylor Grote.  Greenville added three runs in the fifth, putting Charleston down 5-1.  The RiverDogs made a run in the top of the seventh.  Gary Sanchez reached on an error and scored on a single by Jose Mojica.  Jose Toussen hit an RBI single and the game was close again.  Unfortunately, Charleston was unable to put together another rally and they lost 5-3.  Brown went 2-3 with a run scored.  Grote was 2-4 with a pair of doubles.

Staten Island beat up on Jamestown 11-5:
The Jammers put up the first run, scoring in the top of the third.  Mason Williams led off the bottom of the inning and stole second.  He scored on a single by Cito Culver and the game was tied 1-1.  Staten Island broke out in the bottom of the fourth.  Angelo Gumbs, Zachary Wilson and Reymond Nunez used three straight singles to start the inning and pull ahead.  Jhorge Liccien dropped a sac bunt, and two runs scored after a throwing error by Jamestown.  A sac fly to left brought Liccien home and Staten Island was ahead 5-1.  Jamestown tried to comeback, but Staten Island continued to add runs and stay ahead, winning 11-5 at the end of the day.  Nunez went 4-5 with two runs scored, three doubles and three RBIs.  Gumbs was 2-4 with a couple runs scored and a RBI.

  1. am i the only one who seems to notice that cito culver just seems to be in the middle of most of staten island's scoring these days? it seems that every week he either drives in a run, or scores one, or both.

    • I have noticed that as well. Culver has been putting together a decent season so far, which is nice to see after Keith Law had nothing nice to say about him after seeing him just after the Short Season started. 41 games into the season he's hitting .291/.367/.394/.761, though he has hit .417 right-handed and just .239 left-handed.
