The Baby Birds went 2-2 on Saturday, and for the second time in 3 games, there was an altercation between one of the Cardinals’ affiliates. On Thursday, it was the Peoria Chiefs involved in a bench clearing incident and on Saturday it was the Memphis Redbirds involved. There were 8 total ejections in the game and pitchers Jorge Rondon and Mitchell Boggs were ejected for Memphis along with the catcher Rob Johnson and the manager Pop Warner. The Redbirds would battle back from a huge deficit only to allow 5 runs in the 8th. Springfield split a double-header with NW Arkansas and in Game 1, Nick Greenwood was working on a no hitter in the fifth before he would allow a run. Xavier Scruggs would hit his 17th home run, which puts him in second in the Texas League.
As the Peoria Chiefs are ending the first half, they are on a roll and have won 3 in a row. Patrick Wisdom is heating up in a big way. On Saturday, Wisdom ht his second home run in as many days and now has 11 on the year. Wisdom is hitting .351 with those 2 home runs and 7 RBI in his last 10 games and is currently on a 4 game hitting streak and a 3 game multi-hit streak.
