Miami Marlins Daily Minor League Report: August 24

Victor Decolongon

Montgomery Biscuits starter Victor Mateo pitched a no-hitter against the Miami Marlins' Double-A affiliate, the Jacksonville Suns.

Triple-A: New Orleans Zephyrs
W 4-3 @ Omaha Storm Chasers

Full Box Score

Nick Green, SS: 2-for-5, R, HR, SO
Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3B: 2-for-5, 2B

Brad Hand, SP: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 6 BB, 3 SO, HR

Kevin Kouzmanoff has had a respectable season in Triple-A, batting .307/.353/.474. According to a minor league equivalency calculator, Kouzmanoff would hit .262/.292/.390 in the majors. Considering how poorly Placido Polanco has hit this year, I'm surprised the Marlins haven't tried out Kouzmanoff.

Double-A: Jacksonville Suns
L 0-3 @ Montgomery Biscuits

Jacob Realmuto, C: 0-for-2, BB
Derek Dietrich, 2B: 0-for-3

Anthony DeSclafani, SP: 5.2 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 3 ER, SO, HR

24-year-old Victor Mateo has worked his way up the minors a level at a time, but never shown tremendous promising with a 4.20 career ERA. Last night, he was the star of the game, delivering a no-hitter against the Suns. Only Realmuto reached base successfully, walking.

High Class A: Jupiter Hammerheads
L 0-3 @ Charlotte Stone Crabs

Full Box Score

Chris Coghlan, 3B: 1-for-2, 3B, SO

Angel Sanchez, SP: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, SO, HR

Angel Sanchez got off to a rough start, but the Hammerheads were never afforded an opportunity to comeback, as the game was completed after five innings due to rain.

Low Class A: Greensboro Grasshoppers
L 1-5 @ Hagerstown Suns

Full Box Score

Avery Romero, 2B: 1-for-4
Colin Moran, 3B: 2-for-4, BB

Austin Brice, SP: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 4 SO

The Grasshoppers actually out-hit the Suns, but went 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position. The game was competitive for awhile, but it slipped out of hand when Wander Ramos hit a two-run double in the seventh.

Short-Season: Batavia Muckdogs
W 5-1 @ Mahoning Valley Scrappers

Batavia's pitching almost entirely shutdown the Scrappers, striking out a combined 14 batters. Most impressively, Miguel Del Pozo struck out five batters in just two innings pitched.

W 3-2 vs. GCL Cardinals

Full Box Score

Iramis Olivencia, 2B: 2-for-4, R

Tyler Kinley, SP: 3.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO

K.J. Woods didn't have the best game, going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts. But he did deliver when needed, driving in Carlos Duran with a single in the seventh for the go-ahead run. Woods is currently batting .195/.308/.248.
