Jack Etkin has a piece on Cole Garner, but also let's us know which team the guys heading to Hawaii are Garner, EY Jr, Fowler, Nelson, Duke Sardinha (from Hawaii), Ching-Lung Lo and Adam Bright. They'll all play for the Waikiki Beachboys.
Colorado Springs: J.D. Closser hit a three-run homer run and Jason Smith a grand slam in a loss. The bigger news is that U-Ball and Baker should be recalled next week.
Tulsa: Marc Kaiser threw an 8-inning complete game for a loss. He surrendered three runs on eight hits and struck out five. Ian Stewart hit his 41st double and Jordan Czarniecki stole his 20th base.
Modesto: Greg Reynolds took his first loss as San Jose blanked the Nuts last night 4-0. Reynolds went five innings, saw four runs cross home and struck out two. Jonathan Herrera was the only Nut to collect multiple hits and also stole his 33rd base.
Asheville: Brandon Durden went six innings, allowed eight runs on eight hits, walked three and struck out six. He also took the loss. Daniel Carte collected his 14th home run and Cole Garner reached 40 doubles for the season. Stole bases were rampant last night as Garner (35), Fowler (42), EY Jr (86), Van Kooten (20) and Chris Nelson (14) each stole a base.
Tri-City: Starter Andrew Graham went four, allowed two runs and struck out four in the loss (he got an ND). Will Harris pitched an inning of relief and struck out two. Mike McKenry drove in a run and Hector Gomez hit his second double for Tri-City.
Casper: Jhaysson Agustin hit his third home run, a two-run shot. Everth Cabrera stole his 14th base. Yull Silano started, allowed two runs on three hits and walked and struck out two.
