Rest of the team

Manager Dann Bilardello was ejected in the third inning.

 

Notes:

Jeff Luhnow was on 550 AM KTRS Sunday morning and said recently signed 2010 sixth round draft pick John Gast would make one or two relief appearances and move straight into the starting rotation.  When he would make his debut was not mentioned.  Luhnow likes his breaking ball and sees him as a third or fourth starter in the rotation.

Notes:

MiLB error correction for Saturday's GameTrevor Rosenthal actually pitched 3.2 innings allowing two hits, two runs (one earned), two walks, and struck two out for the winning decision (2-0).  I am told that Rosenthal hit a career-high 97 mph on the radar gun in the outing, passing his previous high of 96. Charllan Jimenez only pitched four innings and could not pick up the win.  Rosenthal should have been included in the 'Individual Highlights' section instead of 'Rough Outing'.
