Minor League Recap - 6/16/07

Triple A - Las Vegas won 8-3

Delwyn Young - 1 for 4, BB, 2 K's

William Juarez gave the 51's a quality start on the way to his 3rd win with Vegas. Juarez allowed 3 runs over 6 innings while striking out 6. Dwayne Pollok came in for a 3 inning save, allowing just 2 hits. Delwyn Young singled and drew a walk; he's reached base safely in 8 of his last 10 games. Andy LaRoche did not play. Vegas plays Sacramento tomorrow at 1:05pm.

Double A - Jacksonville won 8-2

Xavier Paul - 1 for 5, 2B, R, 2 K's
Chin Lung Hu - 1 for 5, R, K
Cory Dunlap - 1 for 4, RBI, 2 R
Anthony Raglani - 0 for 4, 2 K's

Zach Hammes - 6 IP, 3 Hits, ER, 0 BB, 3 K's
Greg Miller - 1 IP, 2 Hits, ER, BB, 0 K's

The Suns jumped out to an early lead and held on to pull within a game of first place. Hammes had his best start of the season, on the way to his 2nd win of the season. Greg Miller came in with a 7 run lead and managed to get out of the inning without too much trouble. Although he allowed a solo HR, Miller was able to record 3 outs, which is a major step forward from his last outing. Xavier Paul hit his 13th double of the season, while Chin Lung Hu and Cory Dunlap singled. Jacksonville concludes their series with Montgomery tomorrow at 12:05pm.

High A - Inland Empire won 4-3

Blake DeWitt - 3 for 5, 2B, RBI, R, K
Travis Denker - 1 for 3, R, K, SB, HBP
Russell Mitchell - 3 for 3, RBI, BB
Jamie Hoffman - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI, K
Lucas May - 0 for 4
Ivan De Jesus Jr - 2 for 3, BB

James McDonald - 6 IP, 5 Hits, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K's
Javy Guerra - 2.1 IP, 2 Hits, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K's

James McDonald returned from his hiatus in a pivotal game in the 66ers' battle for first place. McDonald, like Clayton Kershaw, skipped his last start and showed no rust, picking up his 5th win of the year. The 66ers led 4-0 as Francisco Felix replaced McDonald and Felix almost gave the game away, allowing 3 runs in 0.2 innings. Jacobo Meque came in to face 1 batter and allowed an RBI single, cutting the 66ers' lead to 1. But Javy Guerra made a relief appearance and ended the inning. Guerra allowed a single in both the 8th and 9th innings but managed to earn his 1st save of the year. Blake DeWitt continued to rake, slugging his 19th double of the season and is now batting .386 in June. Russell Mitchell also had a 3 hit night, while Ivan De Jesus Jr has more walks (36) than strikeouts (33). The Empire clinched at least a share of the division title with tonight's win. They face Lancaster again tomorrow at 1:05pm in their final game before the All Star Break.

Low A - Great Lakes won 7-4

Trayvon Robinson - 0 for 4, R, BB, 2 K's, SB
Josh Bell - 2 for 4, 2B, R
Preston Mattingly - 3 for 4, RBI, 2 R, K, SB
Scott Van Slyke - 0 for 2, RBI, BB, OF Assist

Josh Wall - 5.2 IP, 8 Hits, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K's, E

The Loons are closing out the first half hot, winning 7 of their last 8. Josh Wall won his 2nd straight start and David Pfeiffer backed him up for his 1st save. Preston Mattingly raised his season average to .265 and is batting .389 in June. Mattingly also stole his 7th base. Trayvon Robinson stole his 14th while Josh Bell clubbed his 15th double. Scott Van Slyke threw out a runner at 3rd. The Loons look to pull their first half record to .500 with a victory tomorrow at noon.
