Midwest League news and notes for Monday, July 28

My drive home from Cooperstown began today, and I’m tired after a long day, but because I’m dedicated to bringing you the latest Midwest League news — even when I’m on vacation — here are links to some MWL stories of note from Monday:

Ziomek caps career day with 13 punchouts — West Michigan Whitecaps LHP Kevin Ziomek struck out 13 Cougars batters while allowing four hits and three walks over six scoreless innings at Kane County. He got a no-decision in the Whitecaps’ 2-1 win. Ziomek struck out 11 batters in his previous start, as I mentioned in this post last week.

Loons combine on unusual one-hitter — Five Great Lakes Loons pitchers combined efforts to one-hit the Peoria Chiefs. RHP Jordan Hershiser pitched the first three innings for Great Lakes, walking four batters and giving up Peoria’s lone hit.

Romano strikes out 10 in Dragons win — Dragons RHP Sal Romano struck out 10 batters in Dayton’s 3-2 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels. In 5 innings, he gave up one run on five hits, one walk and a wild pitch.

LumberKings fall 9-0 as offense remains elusive — The Clinton LumberKings’ offensive struggles continued as they were shut out for the third time in four games. Clinton has a five-game losing streak during which their opponents’ starting pitchers have allowed only one run over 29 innings.

Hu, Palka named MWL players of the week — Kernels RHP Chih-Wei Hu was named the Midwest League pitcher of the week for the period of July 21-27, which you can read about here. Daniel Palka of the South Bend Silver Hawks was named the MWL offensive player of the week. (Sorry, there is no Silver Hawks story about this for me to link here.)

Finally, the next link isn’t related to the Midwest League, but I’m still sharing it because I was at the game involved.

Cole tosses five scoreless in rehab start — Pittsburgh Pirates RHP Gerrit Cole gave up five hits and three walks while striking out seven batters in a rehab start for the Indianapolis Indians. The Triple-A team beat their hosts, the Rochester Red Wings, 5-0.
