Minor League Report...July 1, 2011

Hello, am on vacation and was posting early as I will be travelling later today and tommorow. Lost the entire post when posting.

Briefly, the Red Wings were 1-6 with their only win last Saturday when Kyle Gibson allowed two runs in five innings. They are back in last place, 15 games behind Lehigh Valley. Their Player of the Week was Aaron Bates, 7-23 (.304 average)

The Rock Cats also only won one of six. Steve Hirschfeld allowed two runs in six innings in Monday's 15-5 win. Liam Hendriks allowed only one run in Tuesday's 2-1 loss. Their top player this week was Brian Dozier, who was 10-29 (.344 average) with four doubles and a triple.

The Miracle were 3-3 and are in fifth place, 3.0 games out. Kevin Slowey pitched two innings on Saturday when he allowed two runs and returned yesterday, allowing two runs in 3.1 innings. Logan Darnell pitched six innings with an unearned run in Tuesday's 9-8 win. Their top player was Jamaal Hawkins, who was 8-14 (.571 average) with a pair of doubles.

The Snappers are in second, a game behind Kane County after winning four of six this week. They had consecutive quality starts from Pat Dean (his last start as a Snapper), B. J. Hermsen and Adrian Salcedo. They also had a great start from Manuel Soliman last night when he allowed an unearned run in six innings. Their top player was Jairo Perez who was 12-23 (.521 average) with two home runs, three doubles and nine runs driven in.

The ETon Twins were 4-2 with Tim Shibuya making two great starts, allowing a run in five innings of a 3-1 win over Burlington and six shutout innings in last night's 2-0 win over Kingsport. Eddie Rosario had a week for the record books. Rosario hit home runs in four consecutive games, including two on Wednesday. He was 10-23 (.434 average) with five home runs, two doubles, eight runs scored and a dozen runs batted in and is now hitting .357 average in 42 at bats.

The GCL Twins were 1-2 this week and at 4-4 trail the Rays by 1.5 games. Jeff Manship pitched three shutout innings in their 4-1 win over the Orioles. Hein Robb pitched four no-hit, shutout innings with six strikeouts in Wednesday's 2-0 loss to the Rays. Wander Guillen is playing more like the player he was in the DSL two years ago. Still 18 years old, Guillen was 5-12 (.416 average) to raise his average to .320.

The DSL Twins were 3-2 and remain in first place, a half game ahead of the Orioles. Junior Subero, Melciades De La Cruz and Jose Abreu all had starts in which they pitched four shutout innings. Their top player this week was Erick Gonzalez, who was 6-16 (.375 average) with six runs batted in.
