AAA Colorado Springs, L 7-12 (28-31, 3rd, 2.5 GB)
Esmil Rogers (0-0, 3.86) (2003, DR) is doing nothing to convince the front office to give him a roster spot. Six days after allowing five runs in four innings on his return to AAA, the Las Vegas 51s (Blue Jays) jumped on him for 9 runs on ten hits and two home runs in 4.1 IP. September callup hopeful Edgmer Escalona (2006, VZ) wasn't any better, giving up the final three runs in a 10-run fifth. Let's hope the parent club pitchers do better against the big league 51s tonight.
On the bright side, Dexter Fowler (2004, 14th round) walked and was a home run shy of the cycle (all left-handed) and is now sporting a studly .459/.565/.730 line. Just like Chris Iannetta, Dex is bored at AAA. Matt Reynolds (2007, 20th round) struck out the side in his lone inning and Huston Street (2009, trade) worked a scoreless inning.
