Bronson Sardinha: 1 for 4, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 K
Andy Phillips: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI – more H (10), XBH (6), HR (3), RBI (6), and BB (6) in fewer ABs (38) than Minky and Phelps combined (6, 0, 0, 1, 5, 39) 
Shelley Duncan: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 K -  3 straight games with a bomb
Chris Basak: 2 for 3, 1 2B, 1 RBI
Steven Jackson: 5 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K – solid effort considering it was 44 degrees and raining

Game 2 postponed due to wet grounds. No makeup date announced.

High-A Tampa (3-0 win over Clearwater)
Reegie Corona: 1 for 4, 1 3B
Jose Tabata: 2 for 4, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 2 K, 1 SB – I’m running out of things to say about him…

Colin Curtis: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB
Tim O’Brien: 1 for 1, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 HBP
Jeff Karstens: 4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 5-2 GB/FB –
Ian Kennedy: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 1-5 GB/FB – guess coming out of the ‘pen doesn’t agree with him

Low-A Charleston (12-8 loss to Augusta)
Wilmer Pino: 1 for 5, 1 R, 1 RBI

Austin Jackson: 1 for 5, 1 K
Mitch Hilligoss: 0 for 4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB – 1 for his last 19, so naturally he gets moved to the cleanup spot…

Eduardo Nunez: 2 for 3, 1 R, 2 CS
Josue Calzado: 2 for 3, 1 2B, 1 RBI – if only he was 2 years younger…

    any way shelley duncan can play first base ? we’re gonna need someone there over the next few years

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Joseph P.

    Jon Hovis is really good…

  • http://riveravblues.com Mike A.

    Shelley can play first about as well as Giambi can

  • ShawnT

    Tabata is hittin .400 any chance of a AA promotion in the near future

  • steve

    if shelley duncan keeps this up they should move him back over to 1st … if tabata is hitting anywhere like this come june his ass better be in AA

  • dan

    whats going on with miranda? I thought he was supposed to be mature well beyond A ball, his 12 k’s in 11 games dont suggest that.

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    He’s a power first guy, so he’ll always K a bunch, and never really hit for a high average.

    Is Troy Glaus a bad player? Miranda has a decent change of becoming that kind of guy.
