• Salt Lake: All eyes were on Scott Kazmir yesterday, but his start for the Bees didn't go so well as he didn’t make it through the second inning, walking four and allowing six runs in the second inning before he was relieved with two outs. He hit a batter and struck out three, including the first two batters of the game. From our Salt Lake Bees rep, Rick Dykhuizen had this to say about Kazmir's start: Kazmir started out doing really well in the first, he had a few balls in the first, but the batters were swinging at them and Kazmir was cruising. Then came the second inning. He couldn't locate, had a lot more balls in the dirt and seemed frustrated. His velocity ranged from 76-88 MPH with him topping out at 91 (that I saw).  Michael Kohn (4.19) struck out two over two innings of work, giving up a run while walking a batter. Jeremy Moore (.259) singled and walked in the contest. The Bees lost the game 8-1.

• Arkansas:  The entire Texas League was off on Tuesday.

• Inland Empire: The entire California League was off on Tuesday. (Catcher, Carlos Ramirez was promoted to the 66'ers before last Friday's game and is hitting .500 after three games)

• Cedar Rapids: Tyler Kehrer (3.00), the Angels' 2009 first-round pick returned from injury this week and in his third appearance of the 2011 season he struck out the only batter he faced on Tuesday. Max Russell (2.41) pitched seven solid innings, striking out out eight, allowing just two runs. Russell notched his fifth quality start in a row and currently sports an ERA of 1.26 in that stretch. Donn Roach gave up three runs in an inning of relief work. Travis Witherspoon (.239) went 0-4 and has struck out eight times in his last three games. The Kernels lost the game 7-1.
Love to hear what you think!
