Triple-A: Aaron Harang struck out 6 in 6 innings and Adam Rosales, Drew T. Anderson and Chris Dickerson had 3 hits each in Louisville's 11-0 win. It was Harang's first start since July 8, what with his strained right forearm. He seems ready to go for the Reds, but he might get one more start with the Bats. Paul Janish was 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs and 3 runs.
Double-A: Jeff Jeffords had a rough go of things in his first game for the Lookouts, allowing 3 runs in 0 innings (though he struck out a guy on a wild pitch) in a 5-1 loss. Jeffords gave up a single and a double and hit a batter before leaving the bases loaded for Ramon Geronimo, who nearly got out of it unscathed before allowing a 2-out single to score 2 inherited runners. So it wasn't all Jeffords' fault, but he didn't exactly pitch well. I don't really expect him to stay; he skipped High A and was probably making a spot appearance. He needs to get an out to lower his ERA from infinity.
High A: Logan Parker was 3 for 3 with 2 walks as Sarasota lost 3-2. Parker is lighting up the Florida State League (.323/.400/.516/.916 in 16 games). Scott Carroll went 6 scoreless innings for the no-decision.
Rookies: Michael Konstanty had 2 home runs and Tony Brown smacked his 10th in Billings' 10-9 win. Brown, Cody Puckett, David Sappelt and Tyler Stovall all had 2 hits. ... Evan Hildenbrandt struck out 6 in 6 shutout innings, Humberto Sosa homered and Alexis Oliveras was 3 for 4 in the Gulf Coast Reds' 4-1 win. Hildenbrandt, who was drafted in the 6th round, is said by Baseball America to have the best secondary pitch from last year's draft (curveball). He's 19 and starting to look like a badass, having struck out at least 6 in his past 4 starts and 5 of his past 6. ... Juan Duran drew 2 walks in the D-Reds' 2-0 loss.
