Salt Lake Bees
Box Score

The Good: Terry Evans was the man for the Bees on Tuesday night going 4-5 with a double and two stolen bases (2). Evans is hitting .533 after his demotion to Salt Lake. Peter Bourjos who went 1-4 with a walk, stole his first base of the season. Mark Trumbo (.300) playing first base again went 2-5 and clubbed his 4th home run on the young season, sharing the team lead for home runs with teammate Corey Aldridge who also hit a home run on the night. SS Gary Patchett (.220) went 2-3 and also clubbed a home run for the Bees. The sidearmed southpaw Daniel Davidson notched another quality start (6 2/3, 2 ER, 3 K).

The Bad: Nick Gorneault went 0-3 with two strikeouts and is hitting .043 on the season. Gabe DeHoyos allowed three runs on four hits in two innings of relief work.

The Noteworthy: To make room for Evans on the Bees roster, outfielder Brad Coon was released. Coon, 27, appeared in five games for the Bees this season, hitting .353 with one triple, two RBI and two stolen bases. In 2009, he hit .276 with 15 doubles, three triples, four homeruns, 36 RBI and 23 stolen bases for Salt Lake. The Euclid, Ohio native was originally selected by the Angels in the 15th round of the 2005 draft.

Arkansas Travelers
Box Score

The Good: The story so far this season has been Michael Kohn, Jordan Walden and Ryan Aldridge . After Walden's scoreless frame last night, it was Aldridge and Kohn's turn to shine tonight, despite the loss.  Ryan Aldrige pitched an inning and 2/3 of scoreless, no hit ball, striking out four. Kohn pitched a scoreless ninth inning without giving up a hit and striking out two Frisco Roughriders. Southpaw Jayson Miller (3.60) pitched five solid innings of work, giving up three runs, none earned.

The Bad: The Offense! The Arkansas Travelers have a Texas League's worst slugging percentage at (.303). They're second to last in team batting average too with a .216 line. That's bad folks.

The Noteworthy: While the Travelers have stunk it up on offense, the team pitching overall is not bad with a 3.77 staff ERA and second in the Texas League with strikeouts at 97.

Rancho Cucamonga Quakes
Box Score

The Good: Dillon Baird busted out on Tuesday night, going 3-3 with a double and two home runs (3). Baird also walked on the night and after a slow start, upped his batting average to .255. Darwin Perez also had a good night, going 2-4 with a two-run home run. Alexi Amarista (.340) went 2-5 with a double. 2B Ivan Contreras hit a two-run pinch hit triple to help the Quakes win 8-5 on Tuesday night. Robert Fish has yet to allow a run on the season, fanned four hitters through two scoreless innings of relief. Chris Scholl  (1.35) closed the game out with scoreless ninth, earning his first save on the season.
The Bad: Alexi Amarista was caught trying to steal a base for the 5th time on the season versus two successful stolen bags.

The Noteworthy: The win for the Quakes (7-6) puts them in first place by a half-game over High Desert in the South Division. They look to make it a three-game sweep over the Storm on Wednesday, sending Matt Shoemaker (1-1) to the mound against Lake Elsinore's Erik Davis (0-1).

Cedar Rapids Kernels
Box Score

The Good: CF Mike Trout (.365), 2B Jean Segura (.306),  3B Luis Jimenez  (.280, 10 RBI's) and Randal Grichuk (.245)  all had multi-hit games on Tuesday. Trout (6) and Segura (7) both stole two bases a piece. Luis Jimenez drove in three runs for the second straight day and Randal Grichuk clubbed his first home run on the season, a two run shot. Carlos Ramirez (.281) went 1-3 but walked twice. Jon Bachanov (2.08) won his first game on the season by pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings, fanning five.

The Bad: Pat Corbin was worked up pretty good, giving up six runs on ten hits in six and two thirds innings of work.

The Noteworthy: Southpaw Pat Corbin picked off three runners on first base for the Kernels on Tuesday. The lefty has an Andy Pettitte type move to first.

*Prospect of the Day: Terry Evans, OF Salt Lake Bees & Dillon Baird, 3B Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.
Love to hear what you think!
