AAA: Durham Bulls - 1, Columbus - 14
Mitch Talbot got the start, and went 6 solid Innings while allowing two earned runs along with two unearned runs, and had a K/BB of 4:1. You can't really blame him for this. Who you should blame however, is the 1-2 punch of Chad Orvella(2 IP, 5 H, 1K, 0BB, 4 ER) and Jason Childers(1 IP, 5 H, 0K, 1BB, 6 ER) that pretty much turned a loss into a blowout. The only Durham run came off a Chris Richard HR, who went 1-4 with a walk.
Reid Brignac - 2-4, 2B
Matt Joyce - 2-4, 2 2Bs
AA: Montgomery Biscuits- 1, Mississippi - 3
Hammel trade return Aneury Rodriguez got the start, trying to improve on his atrocious start to the season. This start WAS an improvement, as he went 6.1 IP, struck out 6, walked 2, but gave up 3 runs. Offensively, Desmond Jennings continues to rake, going 2-4 with a walk.
Rhyne Hughes - 1-5
Matt Spring - 0-4
A+: Charlotte Stone Crabs - 5, Fort Myers - 2
Fringe Prospect Alex Cobb got the start, and struggled a bit. 4IP, 2K, 2BB, and 2 ER was his line, but '08 Draft Pick Matt Gorgen got the win, improving to almost a 3:1 K/BB, and a 1.67 GB/FB ratio, in 11 IP(14K!). Someone to keep an eye on. Offensively, the big hitters were Cody Cipriano - 1-4, 2 RBIs and Reid Fronk - 1-2, 1 RBI, 1 BB.
Ryan Royster - 1-3, BB.
A: Bowling Green Hot Rods - 4, Augusta - 2
Starting for the Hot Rods was '08 26th round pick Michael Jarman, who went 5 IP, struck out 4, only walked 1, but gave up 2 runs. Tim Beckham went 1-3 with an RBI, and Jake Jefferies went 2-4.
Jason Tweedy: 1-4, 2B
