Not Fade Away - Minor League Updates 4/21/09


Rolling Stones - Not fade away 1964 (via fritz51138)

Don't tell Eric Milton, Jeff Weaver, and Tanyon Sturtze that their careers are over. The three combined last night to shut out the Iowa Cubs 7 - 0. Milton didn't just pitch a masterful six innings he also contributed a three run double to break the game open. Milton and company may not be needed by the Dodgers this year but with the number of major league teams having pitching problems he might just snag a job before to long. Rest assured this start generated some interest in GM rooms around baseball. 


Win 7 - 0 as Hector Luna goes 4/4.

Chattanooga Lookouts:
Lookouts lose 5 - 1 as they only score one run for the 2nd game in a row. Lambo chips in a double but the rest of the team was in slumber mode. Hoffman is now 0 for 9 since being highlighted.

Inland Empire 66ers
They roll 11 - 4 behind 24 year old 1st baseman Eduardo Perez who went 4/4 which included a double & home run. Mr. Perez is now the triple crown leader of the California League in the best way. Leads in Avg, OBA, Slug%, OPS, wOBA. He's kind of doing what Carlos Santana did last year. He's old for the league but hitting is hitting so lets give him some True Blue love

Great Lake Loons
Redding was whacked and gone by the 3rd but the team came back with two in the eighth and four in the ninth to pickup the victory 7-6. Kyle Russel had the game winning hit and Javy Guerra picked up his 3rd save in as many chances. Guerra is still unscored on five appearances.
