AAA – Rain shortened first game was won 6 - 5 in the bottom of the 7th on a single by Estaban Lopez. DeJesus had two hits to give him nine hits in his last three games. Russ Mitchell had four hits and scored the winning run. The White Sox duo of Ely/Link have had better nights.
AAA - Game Two - Etherton was pounded, and Troncoso didn't offer much relief help himself as the Isotopes lost the nightcap 8 - 3. DeJesus multi-hit streak came to an end.
AA – Rubby hurled another gem, going seven innings, one earned run. 10 Ground outs versus just 3 fly outs. He's now made six AA starts and has yet to give up more then two earned runs in any game. Trayvon Robinson broke out of his mini August slump with two singles, two walks, drove in three runs, and stole his 36th base. Kyle Russell also got on base four times with two singles and two walks, giving him a perfect night at the plate. Dee Gordon made his 36th error as he continues his drive toward a fairly unique 40/40/20 season.
High A – Inland Empire was crushed 9 - 4.
A – The Loons win 9 - 3 behind the great pitching of Greg Wilborn, who bounced back nicely from his last appearance. Wilborn threw six shutout innings allowing only five base runners. The offense was fueled by Ynoa (2 hits, 36th stolen base), Smith (2 doubles, 3 rbi's), Galvez (3 hits), and Ortiz (7th home run).
In other MWL news, Smith and Glavez were named to the MWL Post Season All-Star team. I'm not sure how they can explain the exclusion of Sands since they named Trout to the team (including MVP) when he was also promoted in June.
Rookie Ogden – The Raptors scored 13 runs without the benefit of a home run. They knocked out 15 hits, including three doubles and triple. Everyone hit the ball except Garcia.
Rookie Arizona – Dang, Eovaldi made his 2nd rehab start and totally Ethan Martin'd it with four walks in two innings. They lost 11 - 2.
