Urias scoreless streak ends and Baseball America notes on Mitch Hansen, Johan Mieses
Julio Urias AAA scoreless streak came to an end last night when he pitched in relief and gave up two runs in two innings. The streak started on April 28th and ended on July 26th. Even though the streak lasted almost three months it was only 29 innings because of the time he spent with the Dodgers. In his 30th inning in the bottom of the 8th, he got hit hard and gave up the two runs to tie the game. OKC still won the game with a run in the top of the 9th to make Urias the winner. Top Cardinal pitching prospect Alex Reyes started against the OKC Dodgers but only went three innings, giving up two runs, including a home run to Rob Segedin, which was his 19th of the year. Career minor leaguer Logan Bawcom pitched six scoreless innings and continues to confound the PCL hitters. Grant Dayton relieved Urias and pitched the ninth for the save.
The Tulsa trio did nothing to write about, as Tulsa lost 4 – 3 in 10. Rios collected three more hits for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes and Grant Holmes pitched five innings for the win. Holmes collected his 8th win while striking out three and walking no one. It took Holmes 99 pitches to get 15 outs.
Mitch Hansen hit a triple / home run for short season Odgen and got his name in the Baseball America scouting report:
Mitch Hansen, rf, Dodgers. A two-sport star in high school, Hansen could have been slinging the pigskin on The Farm right about now if he hadn’t turned down Stanford for a bonus of a nearly $1 million as a second-round pick in 2015. After a disappointing debut in 2015, Hansen probably believes he made the right choice now. He had three hits Tuesday, including a triple and his eighth homer, which ranks second in the Pioneer League. Hanson, who is slashing .331/.373/.540, has a quick bat and a smooth swing with natural loft.
On Monday, Johan Mieses got in the Baseball America Tuesday morning scouting report:
Johan Mieses, dh, Dodgers. The 21-year-old Dominican has struggled this season, striking out 105 times in 325 at-bats. But on Monday, he showed his plus power, blasting two homers and driving in six runs in high Class A Rancho Cucamonga’s 12-1 win over Inland Empire (Angels). Mieses now has 16 homers, second in the California League. The Dodgers consider Mieses a five-tool talent but he has some inefficiencies in his batting stance that get him out of position to hit.
