Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Saturday, May 10: Kyle Waldrop, Bakersfield. Waldrop's second HR of the night came leading off the bottom of the 10th inning and made the Blaze the only farm team to post a victory, 6-5. The rangy outfielder was 3-4 with the 2 HR, 3 RBI and a BB.
Felix Perez: Seems like he's been on this list almost every day of late. 1-2, HR, 3 BB. Up to .308.
Jimmy Moran pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th for Bakerfield: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K.
Tim Crabbe didn't have one of his better outings, giving up four unearned runs in five innings, but nonetheless his ERA dropped to 2.27.
Juan Silverio: 3-5, HR, up to .303. (For the season . . . 3 HR, 2 BB, 32 K.)
Bryson Smith: 2-4, HR.
Zach Vincej: 2-4, HR.
