LF Cole Garner HR, 3 RBI. 4 hits for SS Ramiro Pena (yet another ex-MLB). 3 hits, rbi for RF Kosuke Fukodome (yet another ex-MLB). (Yes, I know Laird was in the majors too, but the ones I point out had SIGNIFICANT MLB time). 2B Corban Joseph 2 h, 2 RBI. 14 runs, 18 hits.

GULF COAST ROOKIE LEAGUE: Austin Romine’s rehab: 1 for 3, double, 2 RBI.

The Minors.

Joba and Austin Romine should start rehabs next week. Good for Romine, since Martin is 4 for his last 57 and 0 for his last 30. How soon can Romine (or Cervelli) replace Martin? (I’d rather have Romine at age 23 and see if he can establish himself. Of course, Sanchez is what, 4 years away?)

AAA: 8-1 win for SWB (Empire St.) Mike O’Connor 1 R in 5 IP (2-3, 3.90). Ex-Red Sock Manny Delcarmen 2 scoreless IP (3.72). 2 H, solo HR 2B Corban Joseph. LF Ronnier Mustelier 3 h, RBI (.303 at AAA). (For the life of me, I don’t know why they don’t call him up. I’d release Jones and give this guy a shot). 1B Russell Branyan 2 h, 2 RBI. (.309). Ramiro Pena (.231) 2 h, RBI.

AA: Lefty Vidal Nuno continues to amaze. I hope he gets a promotion soon. 6 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 1 walk and 10 K! (4-1, 1.22). Just acquired Danny Farquhar 2 scoreless IP, 4 K. LF Jose Pirela 2 h, solo HR (.322). 2B David Adams 3 h, 2 doubles, 2 Rbi. (.307). DH Zoilo Almonte (.282) 4 hits.

High A: Tampa lost 10-2.  Sigh. Kramer Sneed in relief 4 R in 1 2/3, 6.17. He won’t be lasting long. Mason Williams 2 hits.

Low A: A 1-0 loss in 10 innings for Charleston. Both teams had just 3 hits.

The minors tonight.

AAA: SWB lost to Lehigh Valley (about seven miles from my home) 5-4 in 10 innings tonight, and boy did they blow it. Up 4-0, they gave up 3 in the 8th, 1 in the 9th, and 1 in the 10th. Ramon Ortiz went 7 scoreless before being charged with 3 in the 8th. Igarashi, 1 1/3, 1 R. Cedeno 1/3, 0 R, but Jason Bulger lost it. 2B Corban Joseph and CF Colin Curtis each had 2 H, RBI. The winning run scored on a WP. Ryan Howard of the Phillies, on rehab, was 1-4, double, RBI.
