Eli Iorg - Kleptomaniac

AAA: Oklahoma 7, Round Rock 2 - Taylor Buchholz and Mike Gallo both stunk for the Express. Buchholz gave up eight hits, two home runs, five walks and six runs in seven innings. Brooks Conrad had a pair of hits.

AA: Wichita 9, Corpus Christi 1 - Juan Gutierrez had a triumphant return to the mound with two innings of scoreless ball, but the same cannot be said for Carlos Hernandez, who allowed seven runs on four walks and five hits in 3.1 innings.

High A: Salem 8, Myrtle Beach 4 - Beau Torbert was 3-4 with a two-run homer, and Erwin Alcantara was 2-4 with three RBI.

Low A: Lakewood 5, Lexington 4 - Eli Iorg was 2-5 and stole three bases, giving him 33 steals on the season.

Short Season A: Mahoning Valley 4, Tri-City 3 - Jordan Parraz was 2-4 with a pair of RBI.

Rookie: Greenville 8, Johnson City 6 - Big nights for LF Brandon Barnes (3-4 with three doubles) and new CF Matthew Spath (2-3 with a three-run homer).

Zobrist/Talbot Watch: Ben Zobrist was 1-4 (.263/.275/.395). Surprisingly, Zobrist has walked only once in 38 AB's, probably due to the fact that he is in the 8 or 9 slot in the batting order instead of his typical 2-slot. Aubrey Huff was 0-3 with a walk (.274/.350/.455).
