This = Pitching. That = Hitting.

Las Vegas - Scheduled Day Off

Bowie 4 at New Hampshire 2

Joel Carreno allowed an untimely 2-run home run in the third after a passed ball and two wild pitches allowed the game's first run to score, and it would be enough to sink New Hampshire. Carreno had a reasonably strong outing overall, making it through 6 2/3 with 3 ER, 5 H, 3 BB and 8 K. Carreno's still walking too many batters, though in his last three he is 28/6 K/BB in 18.2 innings, albeit with 7 runs allowed. Ronald Uveido pitched 2 innings striking out 3, but gave up an insurance run on a solo home run in the 9th. The Fisher Cats actually outhit Bowie 10-7, but could only muster together 2 runs despite five walks and half their hits going for extra bases. They were 1/11 with runners in scoring position, and stranded 9. The bottom three of the order - Yan Gomes, Mark Sobolewski and John Tolisano all had singles and doubles, with Tolisano picking up a walk as well, while Darin Mastroianni doubled and walked twice while adding a steal. Gose and Hech were both Ofer, and Moises Sierra continued his fine season by homering and walking, scoring both of the team's two runs.

 Dunedin 4 at Brevard County 3

The scoring was done in this one after the fifth, as strong pen work allowed Dunedin to hang on. Deck McGuire went the minimum number of innings to still get the mythical pitcher win, which he did. He also struck out 10 and walked only 2, and 1 of the 3 runs he allowed was unearned. He gave up 5 hits, though two were of the long variety. Matt Wright, Dumas Garcia and Wes Etheridge closed things out, though they managed only 5 K's in 4 innings. Dunedin reached base safely only seven times all game, but made the most of their opportunities. Kevin Nolan hit a two-run home run, and the other runs scored on a wild pitch and a John Talley double and Sean Ochinko two-out single. Justin Jackson singled, doubled, walked and scored twice.

Lansing 3 at Quad Cities 4

The Lugnuts scored in the first, fourth and fifth, but Sam Strickland came in in the 6th with 2 on and 2 out to pick up Sean Nolin who had allowed a walk and a single (2 of the 3 baserunners he would allow on the day, to go with 7 strikeouts.) Strickland allowed the next four batters to reach, and that was all she wrote for the Nuts, who had one more baserunner all game, who was promptly erased in a double play. Matt Nuzzo had 2 of the 5 hits, including a home run, and Marcus Knecht singled and walked twice. Markus Brisker also singled, stole two bases and scored twice.

DSL Tigers at DSL Jays x2 - Both Postponed.

The selected a guy from UBC at the end of the draft and then signed another UBC guy after the draft was over.  I know that there's basically zero chance that these guys will make it, but I like to see players from Canadian universities get drafted.

Some of those New Hampshire hitters are going cold.  Or maybe we've just become so accustomed to awesomeness.

Justin Jackson still seems to be hot.

I'm hoping Jackson gets promoted to NH.

Gerry said that he'd heard a lot of promotions were coming. We know about Jenkins and the transaction list says Gonzalez has gone back to Vegas.

these are the guys I think deserve a move:

Stewart - something mental about being back in AA? no idea what their plan is about having him avoid Vegas.
Crawford & Farina - Farina is hurt though.
d'Arnaud - but with JPA on fire they can and should take it slow with the catchers.
Deck - has pitched well but there's no need...wait until the first of August, or at least after the break.
Molina - no idea what they think he can handle being so new to starting and to pitching at all.
Wright - i see no reason at all not to.
Jimenez - see d'Arnaud
Jackson - to 2B in NH please.
Glenn - challenge him, he's old for the league
Hutch - will he get Jenkins slot, or is that set aside for McGowan?
Turnbull - not really a prospect but if Wright moves up, he's too old for Lansing anyway.
Knecht - owning the MWL
Marisnick - arguably but I'd wait another six-eight weeks.

NH radio interviewed Robert Ray, who just arrived to town

Lugnuts manager Mike Redmond, re Hutchison from May 26 story by Gerry:

I think sometimes he gives hitters too much credit, I wish he would challenge guys a little bit more.

Hutchison's last two starts:

June 4: 6IP, 2H, 0R, 0BB, 9K
June 9: 6IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 9K

Message received. Hutchison is about halfway to his innings limit for the year. Time for a promotion.
