Its an exciting night. Lots of good pitching going tonight, I am extremely intrigued by Oscar Castro (I did draft him in the 2006 redszone prospect draft while he was a 17 year old in the DSL) and am waiting for him to pitch again in Billings so I can get some type of scouting report on him thanks to some of the Billings newspaper writers. Then we have Cumberland and Stubbs making their debuts.

I'm hoping for another strong start tonight from Matt Maloney. He's been very good the last three starts so hopefully he can keep it going tonight.

Justin James pitched two innings in the GCL game (and allowed an unearned run). I guess he'll be going back to Chattanooga soon. Kevin Coddington, a 44th round draft pick iIrc, got his fourth passed ball, but he helped make up for it by catching a runner stealing.

I'm surprised that Stubbs and Cumberland aren't playing considering they've had plenty fo time to reach their new teams.

Stubbs at least isn't there yet according to the Lookouts announcers. Thats why he isn't playing.

Travis Wood - Third inning - Chattanooga

1. Ball. Outside. Foul tip. Bunt goes foul. Home run, 3-1 Lookouts trail.

2. Foul. Grounder past Gutierrez at first base. Single.

3. Called strike. Outside. Inside. Another single. This Huntsville lineup is still ridiculous even without Matt Laporta.

4. Another single, 1 run scores. 4-1 Lookouts trail. 2-3-4 batters in the Huntsville lineup are hitting .326, .372 and .341 and all with power (.440, .612 and .516 slg).

5. Soft liner to Justin Turner for an out.

6. Pop up to Tatum.

7. Single past a diving Valaika that plates another run. 5-1 Lookouts trail.

8. Intentional walk.

9. Inside. Down for a ball. Misses high. Strike. Walks the pitcher. 6-1 Lookouts trail.

I think thats enough play by play.... Travis didn't have the best night tonight.

Now 6-2 Louisville in the 4th inning.

Travis Wood is really having a hard time in AA. Maybe he was promoted too soon. He's still very young--the only 21-year-old or younger on the Lookouts, actually. He needs to get his control problems figured out, though. He's walking almost five batters per nine innings since last year.

Maloney: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Maloney with a HR allowed. He tends to do that. It seems to be his major flaw, he's otherwise handling AAA well the last several starts. Wonder how he will translate to GABP. I guess an occasional long ball is ok if you keep men off base.

Another double by Neftali Soto. He's 1-for-3 on the night.
Whats crazy is he is already their best hitter, Mez needs to be hitting in front of him to get some protection. If he continues to rake, who knows might be getting some playing time in Sarasota before the year is out, but I doubt they would do that.

See Harang, Aaron pre-2008

Tougher competition seems to have sapped Soto of his homerun power. He'll never get the ladies in Dayton to notice him with all these doubles.

Maloney: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Looking good.

Just as an aside, his HR issues this year have been really strange.
April: 0 HR allowed in 22 IP
May: 1 HR allowed in 38 IP
June: 9 HR allowed in 38 IP

Counting tonight, he has given up at least one HR in seven of his last eight starts. Then again, over that same time he's been striking out more than a batter an inning and showing really nice control.

Soto has 18 XBH on the year (13 doubles) and only 12 singles. He is averaging an XBH a game. Crazy...

I am starting to get worried about Juan Duran. Yeah, yeah, he's only 16, but shouldn't he be doing way better than he is in the DSL if he's really a top prospect?

He's 16-years old and is going through a rough six game stretch. I'm not worried at all. He's drawing a great amount of walks which impresses the heck out of me.

Good point Blitz - maybe its just that he gets given more slack - for those who have seen Dickerson - is he really just more of a Janish but in CF.

I say no...He has a high OBP due to quite a bit of walks...He also has a little bit of power, and will steal bases for ya as well...
