Hitting was in short supply for the affiliates yesterday, in five games only two hitters had more than one hit.  Sal Fasano had two for the Chiefs and Manny Rodriguez had three for the Doubledays.  The affiliates managed to squeeze out two wins, Auburn won 2-1 on a solo home run by Rodriguez and the Cheifs won game two of a twin-bill with Fasano hitting a solo shot in that game.  Josh Banks and Ricky Romero had good starts.
