Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Saturday, 4-20: Devin Lohman, Pensacola. Playing SS for the Wahoos, Lohman drove in all four runs in a 4-3, 11-inning victory. Impressively, he did it in three swipes, and in very different ways--a bases-loaded walk, a 2-run HR, and a ground out in extras that brought in the winning run. He was 2-4.
Also notable . . .
Chad Reineke: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K.
Felix Perez: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI. Perez has lately been very timely and productive for the Bats.
Junior Arias: 2-4, HR. He's putting himself back in the prospect picture.
Tony Amezcua (in relief of Stephenson): 2.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K.
