I figured I'd take my turn until Steve returns.
AAA: Fresno defeated Las Vegas 8-7
What could have been an interesting pitching matchup was nothing but a slugfest. Jerome got rocked going 5 IP's with 8 hits, 7 ER's, 3 BB's and only 4 K's. Let's hope he can figure it out. At least Edwin Jackson got rocked as well.
Fikac pitched well and Correia got the save. He threw one inning and gave up a hit and got one K.
As DrB mentioned yesterday Linden's got a 946 OPS and he followed that up with a fantastic game tonight. Linden was 2-4 both of which were homeruns. He walked once and scored 3 runs. He also had a K.
A bunch of other guys had two hits including Clark, Knoedler and Athas. Torcato hit a double to go 1-4.
AA: New Hampshire defeated Norwich 3-1
Simon pitched pretty well. Burres did not and took the loss.
Simon 6.0 H-5 R-1 ER-0 BB-0 K-3 He also picked off a runner at first.
Burres 3.0 H-3 R-2 ER-2 BB-1 K-0
Not a lot of offense and Lewis has not played particularly well this year.
A+: San Jose defeated Visalia 9-8 Kinda of ugly with 4 errors for SJ (Chavez, Schierholtz, Ishikawa and McNiven) and 3 for Visalia.
EME is unconscious. Before tonight he had a 1043 OPS. All he could do tonight was go 3-4 with a HR and 3 RBI. He also walked once.
Angel Chavez went 2-4 with 2 runs scored and stole a base.
A hit for Timpner, Frandsen, Ishikawa and Bowker. Timpner also stole his 10th base.
No great pitching lines for either team but we outlasted them for a win.
Broshuis 4.2 H-5 R-5 ER-4 BB-2 K-7 HR-0 6.44
McNiven 2.1 H-3 R-2 ER-1 BB-0 K-1 HR-0 3.46
A-: Columbus defeated Augusta 1-0
No offense and Sanders only had one hit.
Sanchez pitched 6 innings, allowed 5 hits and a single unearned run. 5 K's and 2 walks.
