Zeke Gets Bombed

AAA: Round Rock was dropped by Omaha 10-5 last night. 2005's Spring Training Wunderkind Zeke Astacio was pounded for seven runs and eleven hits in two-plus innings, though Mike Gallo did hold the fort down, coercing five outs and surrendering only one walk. Cody Ransom continued his hot streak, going 2-3 with a walk and his 14th home run, though is hot hitting was considerably offset by a hat trick of defensive errors. Jason Lane got another night off, which seems odd, though he did play a double header the night before. Charlton Jimerson may be bottoming out, as he was 0-4 with 4 K's, running his totals for the season to 370 ABs, 149 Ks, 18 walks.

AA: Corpus Christi lost 6-4 at San Antonio. Chance Douglass was cruising along with a 4-2 lead into the seventh, but he and reliever Aaron Williams could not hold the lead. Jonny Ash had three hits for the Hooks. Troy Patton makes his Hooks' debut tonight.

High A: Salem fell to Wilmington 5-1. Raymar Diaz, in his first start since being promoted from Lexington, had control issues, walking six in 3.1 innings.

Low A: The Legends were rained out in Savannah.

Short Season A: The Valley Cats were off.

Rookie: Greenville defeated Princeton 8-6 thanks to a 14-hit attack.

Zobrist/Talbot Watch: Aubrey Huff and Mitch Talbot did not play last night. Ben Zobrist's Durham Bulls put a ten-spot on the Toledo Mudhens in the first inning last night and held on for a 15-10 victory, with Zobrist going 2-5 with a double and a triple, scoring three runs and driving in a pair. His average is now at .364 and his OBP at .472 through 44 ABs in Durham.
