It turns out that the fabulous pitching foursome at Lansing is mortal after all, as Noah Syndergaard suffered through his worst outing of the season in yesterday’s come-from-behind victory against Dayton. Syndergaard boasted a 1.89 ERA heading into the night, but it jumped nearly 90 percent after he allowed six earned runs in a little less than four innings of work.

Elsewhere last week, it was business as usual for Syndergaard’s Lansing teammates Justin Nicolino and Aaron Sanchez, while Asher Wojciechowski rebounded from two poor starts to notch his second victory of the year for Dunedin.

Joel Carreno – 4.3 IP, 3 H, 0 HR, 3 SO, 2 BB; fared a bit better in his second Double-A outing of the year, but not by much. After throwing about 59% strikes on May 16, he upped that figure to 68% on Sunday.

Anthony DeSclafani – 8.0 IP, 10 H, 0 HR, 11 SO, 0 BB; the hits allowed are a bit of a concern, but the results have been there. DeScalfani has given up seven or more hits in four of his 10 appearances this year, including eight last night against Dayton.

Sam Dyson – 5.0 IP, 3 H, 0 HR, 1 SO, 3 BB; has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen since being promoted from Dunedin to Double-A New Hampshire. Had one rough outing on May 20 – two walks and a pair of wild pitches that led to two Trenton runs – but has otherwise been effective.

Drew Hutchison – 4.0 IP, 7 H, 2 HR, 3 SO, 0 BB; Tampa Bay chased Hutchison after four innings on May 22, marking the shortest outing of the young right-hander’s major-league career. One silver lining is that, after walking four batters in back-to-back starts, he issued zero walks to Rays hitters on Tuesday (though he did hit one of them).

Chad Jenkins – on the disabled list at New Hampshire.

Deck McGuire – 11.0 IP, 9 H, 1 HR, 4 SO, 5 BB; the roller coaster season of Deck McGuire continues. He gave up four runs in five innings in last night’s loss to Portland, but didn’t factor in the decision. In nine starts, McGuire has surrendered four or more runs four times and he hasn’t struck out more than four batters since April 13.

Justin Nicolino – 4.0 IP, 2 H, 0 HR, 3 SO, 0 BB; rebounded from back-to-back shaking outings to throw four scoreless innings on Sunday; hasn’t walked a batter since May 5 and has only three total free passes this year.

Sean Nolin – 6.0 IP, 4 H, 0 HR, 8 SO, 0 BB; another quality start over the weekend brought Nolin’s season total to five. He has 16 strikeouts and zero walks over his last two starts.

David Rollins – 3.0 IP,  4 H, 1 HR, 2 SO, 2 BB; had his shortest outing of the year at home versus Fort Wayne, in which he gave up his first home run in nine starts. Averaged more than five strikeouts per start through May 3, but has only fanned six total batters in his last three games.

Aaron Sanchez – 4.0 IP, 1 H, 0 HR, 5 SO, 1 BB; have to like the consistency he’s offered this season: one hit allowed in eight of nine appearances, zero home runs, and three or more Ks every time out. It will be interesting to see how he fares when he’s stretched out a bit more next month.

John Stilson – 10.0 IP, 5 H, 0 HR, 9 SO, 4 BB; struck out a season-best six Jupiter Hammerheads in Dunedin’s 6-2 loss Wednesday night and has not given up more than three earned runs in any of his ten starts.

Noah Syndergaard – 7.7 IP, 6 H, 0 HR, 8 SO, 1 BB; had allowed six earned runs through his first nine appearances and doubled his season total in last night’s shelling at the hands of Daytona. Syndergaard still struck out five and walked none through three and two-thirds innings.

Asher Wojciechowski – 6.0 IP, 5 H, 0 HR, 4 SO, 1 BB; recovered from back-to-back awful starts to go six strong innings for the first time since the beginning of May, picking up his second win of the year along the way.

  1. In Vegas for work this week, caught a game.

    *Gose is electric on the basepaths (stole 2nd/3rd while I reached for my beer) and in the field (fully extended diving catch in deep center – he also flubbed one that let in a run).

    *That speedster David Cooper rocked an inside-the-park HR (he needed oxygen rounding third). I really think he’s got a future in AAAA.

    *Decent days for Td (on defense) and AH (at the plate) – was disappointed Snider was out.

    *I did not know Igarashi was a closer in Japan.

    Oh yeah, Lind smiled after hitting a solo shot over the RF wall. Did anyone know Lind could smile?
