Talbot Continues to Excel in Montgomery

AAA: Memphis 6, Round Rock 3 - The Express still holds an eight game lead over Oklahoma. Home runs from Brian Gordon and Charlton Jimerson. Phillip Barzilla struggled in the start.

AA: Wichita 5, Corpus Christi 3 - The Hooks are 1.5 games out of first in the second half divisional race. Zack Greinke was the winner for Wichita. Chance Douglass struggled with his control in five innings, walking five batters. Tike Redman was 2-4 with two RBI, and Jorge Cortes homered.

High A: Salem 8, Winston-Salem 5 - Great relief effort from Jeffrey Wigdahl, who provided four no-hit innings of relief, as the Avalanche opened up a four game lead over Kinston. The top three in the order for Salem provided solid again, with Drew Sutton, Nathan Sellers and Beau Torbert combined to produce nine hits, including six doubles, two walks, four runs scored and four RBI.

Low A: Lake County 4, Lexington 2 - A rare two-hit night for Koby Clemens and Eli Iorg's 15th home run were the only highlights for the Legends, who continue to flounder in the second half.

Short Season A: Tri-City 4, Hudson Valley 3 - The Valley Cats have a 2.5 game lead in their divisional race. Bryan Hallberg ran his record to 4-1 with another quality start, and CF Orlando Rosales, recently called up from Greenville, was 2-2 with a home run.

Rookie: Greenville 1, Pulaski 0 - Four Astros combined on a six-hit shutout.

Zobrist/Talbot Watch: Ben Zobrist was 1-5 for the Rays in their loss to Cleveland. Aubrey Huff was splendid, going 0-4 with three K's and a GIDP. Saturday night (accidentally missed by yours truly), Mitch Talbot had his latest outstanding start for the Biscuits (5.2 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 11 K), getting a no-decision for his effort.
