Yonder misplayed it, but that was a double either way. He didn't play it into a hit. Should have just played the ricochet off the wall rather than hesitating to get to the wall and letting it roll away.

Interesting stuff happened in tonight's game.

First off, DT threw out a runner from behind home plate to get the runner going to second. It was a cannon shot. He said he didn't know he could do that.

DT was also removed after getting hit in the finger by a come-backer. He's fine.

That ump got really rattled. Horrible strike zone. Both managers gave him stuff about it. It clearly got to him. He threw out Tennessee's manager after making a horrible strike 3 call to end a Tennessee inning.

Lewis and Arredondo will play Tuesday. Justin Lehr will start for Carolina.

Pedro Villarreal has been having an extremely nice start to the season for Bakersfield. Offhand, I'd say the best starters in the system so far have been Villarreal, Josh Smith and Josh Ravin.

Oh, and Dontrelle Willis, of course.

I was at the Dragons game last night and Hamilton's speed is amazing. At one point he got caught in kind of rundown. He was on 3rd and on a grounder back to the pitcher he got about half way down the line and kind of froze for a second. Then he just took off and beat the throw home. 99% of all runners would have been caught in a rundown and easilty out but he beat a throw home from the pitcher.

If only he could brush up on his fielding... can't have the errors that he's had this season.

It is April and low A. Those errors are going to happen to 95% of the shortstops that come through that league.

Quick rundown on who's had a good start, by league:

Davin Mesoraco ranks third in the International League with a 697 slugging percentage. His OPS ranks 5th in the league as well.

Both Dave Sappelt and Jeremy Hermida are also in the Top 25 in OPS in AAA.

Dontrelle Willis has a 0.00 ERA (which obviously leads the league) and he's also in the Top 10 in WHIP.

Scott Carroll is in the Top Ten in K's.

Cody Puckett ranks 2nd in OPS in the Southern League and tops the league in on-base percentage.

As to OPS, Jake Kahualeho (sp) is also in the Top Ten. Mike Costanzo ranks in the Top 25.

Darryl Thompson is tied for 5th in AA Southern League with 15 K's so far on the young season.

In Bakersfield, Eric Campbel is killing the competition, leading the league so far in BA, OBP, and OPS. For OPS, Yasmani Grandal, Josh Fellhauer, Andrew (AJ) Means, and Henry Rodriguez are all in the Top 25 in the league (High A California League) as well. Grandal is 3rd in the league in slugging and Means in in the Top Ten, too. Lots of hitting in that park, though, so take it with a grain of salt. (Still, better to be hitting the ball a lot than not at all.)

That's why Josh Ravin looks so good this early, posting Top Ten ranks in ERA, K's, and WHIP, all at Bakersfield. Nice job, that.

Two 1B are performing well in Dayton, with Dominic D'Anna having a solid (6th in the league so far) BA and Donald Lutz third in slugging percentage. Both are in the Top 25 for their league. Hamilton leads the known world in SBs, with 14.

Josh Smith is in the Top 10 in Low A Midwest League in WHIP and K's, and a whole host of Dayton guys (Doyle, Corcino, and Renken) are also throwing up Top 25-ish K numbers.
