Nashville lost 5-4 against the New Orleans Zephyrs and their rightfielder, Jeffrey Hammonds. But I'm focusing on the good stuff:
Huntsville also lost, but finally scored a run:
Huntsville starting pitcher Manny Parra worked out of jams in the fourth and fifth innings to keep the visitors in the lead. He struck out James Shanks and retired Jason Hill on a fielder's choice grounder with runners at the corners and one out in the fourth and induced pinch-hitter Chris Bass to bounce into a double play with runners at the corners in the fifth.
Luis Pena pitched well, but the Brevard County Manatees lost a tight game:
As Dopirak (that's how it's spelled, by the way) is one of the top few prospects in the Cubs system, and a potential major league 30-40 HR guy, I suppose this sort of thing is to be expected now and then.
And last, it looks like the West Virginia Power are following their older role models for better or for worse, today, for the worse:
Not a good day for the organization. At least the pitching is solid...
