Hirsh Untouchable Again

AAA: Round Rock pitchers dominated a doubleheader on Saturday. In the opener, some guy named Jason Hirsh got his 11th win, firing six scoreless innings. Wandy Rodriguez tossed five scoreless innings for Round Rock in a 3-1 Express victory. Humberto Quintero and Cody Ransom each had two hits. Jason Lane was 1-5 with a walk and three K's combined.
AA: Corpus Christi snapped its mini-slump, at least for the night, beating Midland 10-8. Marc Saccamanno continues to emerge from his season-long slump, going 3-3 last night with two doubles and a home run. Hunter Pence was 1-3 with his seventh triple of the season and a pair of walks. Paul Estrada pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his eighth save of the season.
High A: Salem moved into first place with a 10-7 victory over Fredricksburg. Paulino Del Guidice was roughed up in a rare bad start, but Lou Santangelo bailed him out with four hits, including three long balls, and four RBI. Drew Sutton also had two hits and a home run in the win.
Low A: Lexington lost its fifth game in a row as its offense continues to be MIA and its defense shoddy. Brad James was on the verge of a complete game shutout before his defense let him down in the final inning, leading to three unearned runs in the 3-2 loss. The Legends managed only two hits on the night against Hagerstown pitching.
Short Season A: Eric Taylor won the game with a solo homer in the tenth inning for Tri-City. Jordan Parraz had two more hits in the win.
Rookie: Greenville lost to Bluefield 5-4.
Zobrist/Talbot Watch: Ben Zobrist was 1-5 with a run scored for Durham. Mitch Talbot took a loss in his second start for the Montgomery Biscuits, but not for lack of effort. Talbot allowed only four hits and two runs in seven innings. Aubrey Huff was 0-4 with a K in the Astros' loss to the Mets.
