Minor League Notebook: June 15th

Fresno keeps seeming to lose players to the majors, but somehow the guys there just keep producing. It's another day in the Minors!

Fresno Grizzlies (AAA): Fresno 14, Colorado Springs 5
WP: B. Cooper (4-6, 5.26)
LP; J. Young (7-3, 5.86)
Kevin Correia, who has been struggling as a reliever the last month, was given a chance to start in the wake of Jesse Foppert’s call to the majors, but it didn’t go too well. Correia gave up 5 runs on 9 hits over 3.2 innings, but the Fresno offense bailed him out by scoring 6 in an inning twice. Mike Cervenak and Tony Torcato each went 3 for 5, and Angel Chavez went 4 for 5.

Notable Performances:
Angel Chavez: 4-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, .286
Tony Torcato: 3-5, 2 R, 1 3B, 2 RBI, .230
Mike Cervenak: 3-5, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SO, .315
Mickey Lopez: 2-5, 1 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 SO, .292

Norwich Navigators (AA): Norwich 2, Altoona 1
WP: B. Mazone (3-4, 3.44)
LP: P. Stewart (4-6, 4.00)
SV: A. Simon (9)
The first inning proved to be the deciding one for Norwich. All three runs came in the first, and pitchers Brian Mazone and Paul Stewart turned it into a pitcher’s duel. Norwich got a leadoff home run from Fred Lewis, and then picked up an unearned run after Carlos Valderrama came around on a fielding error by the Altoona third baseman. Alfredo Simon picked up his 9th save of the year.

Notable Performances:
Carlos Valderrama: 3-4, 1 R, 1 SB, .329
Fred Lewis: 1-4, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, .228
