The Baby Birds went 3-3 on Sunday as Memphis, Springfield, and Johnson City were winners. Johnson City has started the season 4-0 with their overtime win on Sunday. The big story was Carlos Martinez (pictured) who only allowed 3 hits and struck out 8 over 7 and 2/3 innings. Martinez appears to be fully stretched out throwing over 100 pitches for the first time this season. I believe if another major league starter goes down, Martinez will be the guy. The other big news was that Carlos Martinez aggravated his ankle. Taveras, who missed about a month due to that ankle, was removed in the fourth inning after scoring on Brock Peterson‘s 18th home run in the bottom of the third. Hopefully it is not that serious and he only misses a day or two. Newly promoted Stephen Piscotty hit his first Double-A home run in his second game for Springfield, while Tommy Pham had a hit in his second game for Memphis. The Cardinals put Maikel Cleto on waivers on Sunday and he was picked up by the Royals and sent to Triple-A. Tyler Lyons will take over for Cleto in the rotation and it is believed that Deryk Hooker will get promoted to Memphis on Monday. Here are the results from Sunday’s action: Iowa – 0 Memphis – 6 Ryan Jackson 1-for-5, R Kolten Wong 1-for-3, triple, R Oscar Taveras 1-for-2, double, 3 RBI, R Brock Peterson 3-for-3, HR (18), 2 RBI, 2 R Thomas Pham 1-for-4 Adron Chambers 2-for-4 Rob Johnson 1-for-2, R Carlos Martinez (W, 2-1) 7.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 K Sam Freeman 0.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K Fernando Salas 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K Player of the Game: Carlos Martinez Arkansas – 1 Springfield -4 James Ramsey 2-for-4, double, RBI, 2 R Ruben Gotay 3-for-4, double, 2 RBI Chris Swauger 1-for-4 Stephen Piscotty 1-for-4, HR (1), RBI, R Vance Albitz 1-for-3 Luis Mateo 2-for-3, double, R Nick Greenwood (W, 3-4) 6.1 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K Lee Stoppelman 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K Heath Wyatt 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K Deryk Hooker (S, 5) 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K Player of the Game: Ruben Gotay Fort Myers – 7 Palm Beach – 5 Colin Walsh 1-for-2, double, R Alex Mejia 1-for-5, R Jonathan Rodriguez 1-for-4, double, R David Popkins 2-for-4, double, 2 RBI Nick Longmire 1-for-4, R, SB Anthony Garcia 2-for-3 Danny Stienstra 2-for-4, HR (2), 2 RBI, R Juan Castillo 1-for-4 Kurt Heyer (L, 1-2) 4.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 2 BB, 3 K Danny Miranda 2.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 3 K Aidan Lucas 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K Player of the Game: Danny Stienstra Peoria – 1 Beloit – 3 Jacob Wilson 1-for-3, double, R Jordan Walton 1-for-3 Patrick Wisdom 1-for-2, RBI Jeremy Schaffer 1-for-3 Nick Martini 2-for-4 Hector Hernandez (L, 4-3) 7.2 IP 4 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 3 K Joseph Scanio 0.1 IPm 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K Player of the Game: Hector Hernandez Jamestown – 6 State College – 5 Jimmy Bosco 2-for-5, triple, 2 R Cesar Valera 1-for-3, 2 RBI Bruce Caldwell 1-for-3, HR (1), RBI, R Ronald Castillo 1-for-4 Carson Kelly 0-for-3, R Luke Voit 1-for-3, RBI Michael Schultze 0-for-4, R Juan Bautista (L,0-2) 5.1 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 K Jhonny Polanco 2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 1 K Brady Adamek 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K Player of the Game: Bruce Caldwell Danville – 4 Johnson City – 5 Vaughn Bryan 1-for-5 Brett Wiley 1-for-4, R Justin Ringo 2-for-5 Ronnierd Garcia 0-for-4, R Kenny Peoples-Walls 3-for-4, double, 3 R Rowan Wick 2-for-4, 2 RBI Kyle Grieshaber 0-for-3, RBI Lance Jeffries 1-for-4, double, RBI Yoenny Gonzalez 1-for-4 Dailyn Martinez 3.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 2 K Anderson Gerdel 1.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 1 K Stalyn Lopez 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K Zach Loraine 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K Fernando Baez (W, 1-0) 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K Player of the Game: Rowan Wick   Related articles James Ramsey homers for 3rd time in 4 games – 6/21 Farm Report St. Louis Cardinals: Updated Top 20 Prospects for June
