Farm Update

AAA: The Express scratched across a run in the ninth inning to defeat Memphis 10-9. Mark McLemore left after only one inning of work in which he allowed four runs, and Jailen Peguero allowed a pair of runs (striking out three) in an inning and two-thirds. Jason Lane was 2-5 (.320 since his demotion), and Brooks Conrad continued his hot hitting with a double and a triple.

AA: Corpus Christi was shut down 4-1 by Midland. Matt Albers had yet another great pitching performance, allowing only one unearned run on two hits over seven innings. Josh Bonifay and Jorge Cortes each had two hits for the skidding Hooks, who were an Astro-like 0-for-11 with RISP.

High A: Salem knocked off Potomac 4-1 behind Tip Fairchild, who pitched six solid innings to earn the his first win for the Avalanche. Lou Santangelo had two hits, including his 11th home run, to lead the offensive attack.

Low A: The Legends were flattened by the Power 10-5. Eli Iorg continued his recent surge with two doubles and two RBI.

Short Season A: Tri-City continued its winning ways with a 5-4 victory over Auburn. RF Jordan Parraz doubled twice, walked twice and drove in two runs.

Rookie: Greenville's ninth-inning rally fell a run short in a 4-3 loss to Elizabethton. 2B Reinaldo Ramirez hit his first home run of the season.

Zobrist/Talbot Watch: Ben Zobrist was 2-3 last night for Triple-A Durham. He's 8-21 since being traded with an OBP of .458.

Tim Redding Watch: I did not realize this, but Tim Redding has been in the starting rotation for the Charlotte Knights of the International League, the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. Redding has an 8-7 record in 20 starts (including three complete games) for the Knights and has posted a 3.55 ERA with 99 K's in 132 IP.
