Durham 5, Norfolk 3. Kevin Witt went 2-4 with 2 runs scored in what was probably his last game for the Bulls. Witt was promoted after the Rays traded Russell Branyan to the Padres (more on that later). Shawn Riggans another player who is likely to be called up next week, also had 2 hits with a double and an RBI. Chris Seddon was shaky but survived to pick up his 9th win. He gave up 5 hits, 3 walks, and 3 runs (1 earned) in 6 innings. After Edwin Jackson blew the save on Wednesday night, Juan Salas was called upon to close the door last night and picked up his 3rd save of the season, allowing just one hit in the 9th inning.
Montgomery 10, Jacksonville 0. Elliot Johsnon went 2-4 with 4 runs scored, but the big story was The Cajun God of Baseball Reid Brignac. Brignac entered the game hitting .265 since his promotion to AA, but last night he went 5-5 with a 2-run home run in the 4th, his second dinger for the Biscuits. All of the sudden the California League MVP is hitting .315 in 19 games with Montgomery. Evan Longoria, who is in a 2-21 slide, was given the night off. Justin Ruggiano went 0-3 with 2 walks and left 6 runners on base. Jason Cromer survived 4 hits and 4 walks to pitch 6 scoreless innings, to pick up his 3rd win.
