• Salt Lake: Snowed out for the home opener and Friday night's contest, the Bees were only able to get in three games (Sunday a doubleheader) over the weekend, winning on Saturday 8-1, but dropped both contests on Sunday to the Reno Aces. Alexi Amarista (.400) continued to impress after opening a lot of eyes in spring camp, clubbing two home runs over the weekend, including 5 RBI's. Tyson Auer went 3-4 on Saturday, clubbing two doubles. Jeremy Moore (.100) notched his first hit on the season, a triple. 3B Jeff Baisley who was signed to a minor league contract in the offseason went 4-8 over the weekend with an RBI. Steven Geltz pitched a scoreless inning of relief on Saturday, while Trevor Bell earned the victory with three scoreless innings after the Angels pulled Chatwood for the start in Anaheim on Monday.

• Arkansas: Mike Trout (.214) had a solid game on Saturday, going 2-4 with his first home run, walk and stolen base on the season. 2B Ryan Mount (.500) continued his hot hitting, notching his fourth-straight multi-hit game on the season. Mount has three RBI's on the young season, in what is his third stint in Double-A with the Travelers. 3B Luis Jimenez (.333) hit his first home run on the season and clubbed three RBI's over the weekend for the Travs. Reliever Eddie McKiernan who's getting stretched out, got clobbered by the Midland club, giving up eight earned runs in three innings of work. Southpaw Andrew Taylor pitched four innings, giving up just one run, while fanning three. Orangel Arenas started on Saturday and pitched quality ball, giving up just an earned run in five innings of work, though he walked three and fanned just one.

• Inland Empire: After taking the home opener last Thursday, the 66'ers dropped their next three to the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. Be that as it may, Segura killed it posting a  .438/.550/.750 line in 20 plate appearances over the first four games of the season for the 66'ers. Jeremy Haynes struck out four over three innings of work, though giving up two runs. The tall lanky closer of the 66'ers pitched two scoreless innings on Saturday, fanning three. While Hellweg has yet to give up a run over three innings of relief work, he's issued five free passes to go along with his five strikeouts thus far. 

• Cedar Rapids: Like Amarista, Jean Almanzar weighing in at 150 pounds and standing 5'7 tall, the diminutive 2B clubbed two home runs over the weekend, while driving in seven. Travis Witherspoon clubbed his first dinger of  the season on Sunday, as did catcher Carlos Ramirez on Saturday. Ramirez is repeating Low-A ball. The Kernels clubbed 15 hits overall in their 12-9 victory over the Peoria Chiefs. Donn Roach notched his 2nd victory of the season, pitching three innings of scoreless ball on Saturday. Daniel Tillman got the nod on Friday night as a starter and gave up three earned runs in 3 1/3 innings, walking three, while giving up just one hit.
Love to hear what you think!
