Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Friday, May 17: Jon Moscot, Bakersfield. You don't find many 1-0 games in the California League, but Moscot and his fellow Moscovites pulled it off. His breakout line: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K.
And while we're at it, let's go ahead and credit his wing men: Pat Doyle -- 1.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K. And the ascending El'Hajj Muhammad -- 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K, ERA 0.93.
Drew Cisco. 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K. In his eight starts and 50 IP this year, Cisco has walked 4 batters. Three of them were in one game. (Why do I suspect the umpire?) So, yes, in six of his eight starts, all of them six innings or more, the 21-year-old righty has walked nobody. Bully.
Seth Mejias-Brean. MJ's first HR of the season proved to be the game-winner in the 10th for Dayton. On a 3-5 night, he also doubled.
Jesse Winker. The wunderkind homered for the second straight night, his sixth. Also tripled. Up to .304.
Sean Lucas went the final three innings for Dayton: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K.
Juan Perez, leading off the top of the first for Bakersfield, singled, stole second, and came around to score the only run of the game. He was 2-3 with a BB.
Emmanuel Burriss was 3-4 with a 2B.
Corky Miller was 2-4 with a 2B and 2 RBI.
Chad Rogers. 4.2 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Anybody know why he left the game in the fifth after only 77 pitches, working on a shutout?
