SWB & Trenton Tampa sweep doubleheaders

By

Two years ago today on DotF, Frankie Cervelli hit a grand slam and had 5 RBI in High-A Tampa’s win over Dunedin.

In a shocking turn of events, Alan Horne was placed on the DL today. You may remember that he injured his hammy during his start this past Tuesday. Oh, and could this be why the Yanks teach the curveball to all their youngsters? (h/t Joe Filippone for the email)

Make sure you scroll down for tonight’s game thread.

    ————–

    So Melancon threw 19 pitches to 5 batters, and he struck out 3 of them? Yikes. That’s efficient.

    Mike,

    What do you think of Kontos? Still profiles best as a reliever?

  3. Drew says:

    E-Dunc with a hit? Let me switch my calendar back to April.

  4. Mike says:

  5. The Artist says:
