Outfielder Paul McAnulty, in the midst of a 16-game hitting streak that has seen him go 21-for-64 with ten extra base hits, 11 RBI's and nine runs scored, was called up to the San Diego Padres.
For the year, he is hitting .301 with ten homers and 38 RBI's while drawing 26 walks. He has played most of his games in left field while getting three games in right and one at first base. A converted first baseman, McAnulty tore up the California League a year ago, hitting .297 with 23 homers and 87 RBI's while drawing a league leading 88 walks.
Brian Burgamy, meanwhile, hit .295 with the Lake Elsinore Storm with seven homers and 40 RBI's while crossing the plate 43 times. He is hitting .331 since the beginning of May and has nine extra base hits in his last 13 games.
Burgamy has spent the majority of his playing time in left field, although recently he has seen more time in right field. He has been extremely effective with two outs, hitting .400 with runners on base and two away and .333 with runners in scoring position and two outs.
