Rochester 9, Durham 7. Edwin Jackson got shelled again and Rocco Baldelli took the night off. There is something terribly wrong with Jackson. He gets pounded everytime out. Last night he gave up 10 hits, 3 walks and 8 runs (3 earned) in 5 innings. Yes, only 3 runs were earned but he still gave up 13 hits and walks in only 5 innings. This just in…That’s not good. Another big night for Elijah Dukes and Kevin Witt. Dukes went 2-5 with a double and his 8th homerun. He drove in 2. Of course, that was overshadowed by Witt, who went 4-4 with a double and 2 home runs. He now leads the International League with 16, and is making a strong case for the Rays to trade Travis Lee to a contender that would like a late inning defensive substitution at first base. Witt drove in 4 and is now hitting .312. B. J. Upton went 0-4.
Chattanooga 3, Montgomery 1. The Biscuits could have used a bit more time in the oven as they managed only three hits. One of those hits was the 6th home run for RF Jeremy Owens.
Visalia 3, Rancho Cucamonga 0. Shaun Cumberland hit his 13th home run. That puts him 2nd in the California League. Janathan Barratt making just his 6th start of the season pitched a 2-hit shutout. He walked only one and struck out 9.
SW Michigan 9, South Bend 4. Strong outing by Jacob McGee (5-5) who went 6 innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 walks and 1 unearned run. He struck out 5. RF Garrett Groce went 3-5 hitting his 2nd and 3rd home runs of the season. DH David Cardona added his first home.
