Farm Update

AAA: The Express played a thriller with New Orleans, losing 10-9 in 13 innings. The teams were tied at six after nine innings, and each team scored two in the eleventh and one in the twelfth, before the Zephyrs won the game with a run in the 13th inning. Chris Sampson had a great start, allowing only five hits and a run over seven innings, but Brandon Puffer and Travis Driskill allowed a total of five runs in the eighth and ninth to blow the save. Mike Gallo entered the game in the 11th with runners on first and third and immediately gave up a game-tying hit. Jason Lane was 1-5 with a pair of walks.

AA: Corpus Christi was off.

High-A: Salem was off.

Low-A: Lexington was shut out by West Virginia 8-0. Brian Bogusevic was bombed for eight hits and five runs in five innings.

Short Season A: The Valley Cats shut out the Muckdogs 6-0 behind Douglas Arguello, who struck out eight and allowed only one hit in six scoreless innings.

Rookie: Greenville beat Bristol 4-1 behind the amazing Pollin Trinidad, who fired seven more scoreless innings for the Astros. Trinidad has given up ONE earned run in 31 innings pitched for Greenville, striking out 27 and allowing only 16 hits. He is now 2-1 with a miniscule 0.29 ERA.
