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.
