Only three teams in action last night:
Casper lost six to five despite Corey Wimberly's first professional homerun. Only two of Wimberly's twelve hits thus far have been for extra bases and we really aren't expecting that ratio to increase as he climbs up the ladder much, but we like everything else he's been doing (a .410 OBP, .477 SLG, five for five in SB attempts) in nine games thus far. Geoff Strickland also had a couple of hits and Andrew Johnston had another scoreless outing out of the pen.
Tri City also lost, three to one, and there weren't any really positive performances besides Travis Becktel breaking the zero for twelve drought that started his season with his first three hits in as many AB's yesterday. Darren Clarke pitched a scoreless eighth and has only allowed one hit and one walk in five innings to go along with seven K's this year, but he was in Tri-City the first time in 2002 and really needs to perform as well at upper levels before we get excited at this point.
Tulsa won five to one, Sandy Nin pitched a complete game six hitter, and Sean Barker had a double and HR to lead the Drillers, Jud Thigpen had another hit (his average for Tulsa thus far .412) and Jeff Salazar and Doug Bernier were the only other Drillers to get on base more than once: Salazar by drawing two walks, Bernier by getting two singles.
Update [2005-6-30 15:16:5 by Rox Girl]:
Ubaldo Jiminez has been promoted to Tulsa and should join the squad this weekend. Also, as the comments point out, Chris Ianetta will be joining Juan Morillo at the Futures Game.
