Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Friday, 5-3: Marquez Smith, Bakersfield. Nobody on the farms participated in a winning effort, again, but Smith's losing night wasn't so bad: 3-4, HR. Recently signed after being released by the Texas organization, he has been playing third base and batting cleanup for the Blaze.
Ryan LaMarre, Pensacola . . . 3-4, 2B.
Daniel Renken, Pensacola . . . 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K.
Drew Hayes, Pensacola . . . 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K.
Felix Perez, Louisville . . . 3-5, 3B.
