Box score


Dunedin 17 Sarasota 3

Like the look of this?
Cannon with a triple and 4 ribs,
Slugging .898

Arnold, Synder both went deep.
Except for Lind and Mayorson,
Every starter hit.

David Purcey cruised
5 shutout innings on 3 hits
4 walks, but 9 Ks!

Box score


Cedar Rapids 2 Lansing 1

Bottom of the ninth:
Double, 2 walks off Scott Roy;
Sac fly wins the game.

Jordan Timm pitched well.
Christian Snavely homered, but
No one else could hit.

Box score


Mahoning Valley 6 Auburn 4

Brian Grant relieved
Gave up 6 runs, got 4 outs
And thatís the ballgame

Pattonís solo shot,
Two Metropoulous doubles were
All the XBH.

I don't know what to think of Purcey. He clearly has fine stuff but no control over it. You could promote him to AA and hope for the best but if he's walking 4 or 5 guys every game in A-ball then what's going to happen in AA and AAA where the batters get a lot more patient and adept at hitting cripple pitches? His pitch per inning efficiency must also be awful.
