Jose Dominguez made his first start of the season against D Backs phenom Archie Bradley. Both pitchers struggled but the Loons battled and scored 2 tie-breaking runs in the 9th for the win.
Garrett Gould struggles again, while the Lookouts fall in 12.
Chattanooga's Alberto Bastardo and Great Lakes' Will Savage were names Southern League and Midwest League's Pitcher's of the Week (May/17-May/23).
Albuquerque held on for a 11-10 win over Las Vegas. Alberto Bastardo pitched Chattanooga to a 4-3 victory over Carolina. Kyle Russell knocked in five runs in Inland Empire's 10-run first inning for a 16-5 win over Cucamonga. Will Savage worked a complete game 2-0 shutout, and Elisaul Pimentel and Rubby de la Rosa combined for another 2-0 win in the second game as Great Lakes swept Lansing.
Two seasons, two championships. Winning seems to be coming easy for 23 year old right-hander Will Savage, who looks to make the jump to Double-A Reading to start the 2008 campaign.
Will Savage continued climbing through the organization last season with a visit to Clearwater. It was only a visit, because Savage figures to not be returning to the Threshers in 2008.

The 22 year old right-hander made his professional debut last summer and worked his way up to Lakewood where he found himself in the middle of a pennant race. Who knows just how high Savage can climb in 2007?
