Fresno Grizzlies             8

(LP – Castro 3-7 / 7.01)

Designated Hitter Manny Ramirez

(3 for 5 / 2 RBIs)



Worth Noting: Manny Ramirez had another big game, collecting 3 hits and driving in 2 runs, including the go-ahead run for the River Cats in the 7th inning. But left-hander Pedro Figueroa gave up the game-tying run to the Grizzlies in the 8th, and left-hander Fabio Castro allowed the game-winning run in the bottom of the 13th to take his 7th loss.

Frisco RoughRiders    5

(LP – Hernandez 0-3 / 10.88)


Farmhand Of The Game:

Outfielder Michael Choice

(2 for 6 / Double / 2 RBIs)



Worth Noting: Outfielder Michael Choice doubled and drove in 2 runs, including the game-tying run in the 7th inning for the RockHounds, but left-hander Carlos Hernandez surrendered the game-winning run in the bottom of the 14th to take his 3rd loss.




Bakersfield Blaze  5

Stockton Ports     9

(WP – Treinen 6-5 / 4.42)


Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher Blake Treinen

(7 IP / 2 ER / 10 K / Win)

Burlington Bees           2

Cedar Rapids Kernels  1

(WP – Cole 2-0 / 3.22)

“Manny Ramirez had another big game” – well, I don’t think he’s had a previous one. In 63 PA’s he has 3 BB, 3 doubles and no home runs…hard to have big games when you never homer and rarely walk.

He’s had precious few to this point, but you should note that he’s been the big stick in the River Cats’ last two to three games – he’s 6 for 13 with 6 RBIs over his last 3 games, therefore it was another good game.
