Express Clinch Divisional Title, Still Possess Zero Quality Position Players

AAA: Round Rock 4, Albuquerque 3 - After blowing a two-run lead in the top of the ninth, the Express clinched a postseason berth when Brian Gordon scored on an error. Very nice start from Phillip Barzilla (6 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 K), and C Hector Gimenez had three hits.

AA: Frisco 11, Corpus Christi 2 - The Rough Riders slugged four homers in a rout of the Hooks. Josh Miller was the generous pitcher for Corpus. Marc Saccamanno continued his hot streak with a 2-4 night. In August, Marc has a .300 avg, .378 obp and .663 slg, and for the season, he is hitting .297 with a .622 slg with RISP.

High A: Salem 3, Potomac 0 - The Avalanche won its ninth straight game behind the brilliant pitching of Tip Fairchild (7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K).

Low A: Lexington 8, Lake County 4 - Eli Iorg stole two more bases and Josh Flores hit his 11th home run. It will be interesting to see where Koby Clemens winds up next season. His numbers do not indicate that he is ready for the move to High-A ball yet (21 errors, .658 ops).

Short Season A: Lowell 8, Tri-City 2 - The Valley Cats' winning streak was snapped at seven games. Jordan Parraz was 2-4 with a pair of RBI.

Rookie: Pulaski 5, Greeneville 4 - SS Ronnie Ramirez was 3-5, pushing his average to .312 on the season. Polin Trinidad fired a complete game ten-hitter in the loss.

Zobrist/Talbot Watch: Ben Zobrist was 1-3 with his fourth double of the season. Aubrey Huff rode the pine (again) for the Astros, as Phil Garner continues his quest to find the most illogical lineup in the history of baseball.
