Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Monday, May 27: Josh Fellhauer, Louisville. The platoon outfielder outslugged a lusty Memorial Day field, going 3-5, HR, 2B, 2 BB, 4 RBI. After a wretched 1-20 start, the lefty swinger has pulled his OPS up to just under .700. For May, it's .852.
Also notable . . .
Juan Perez: 2-5, HR, 2B, SB, BB, 3 RBI. Given the usual state of the organizational offense, that would have won it on most days.
Ryan Wright: 4-8, 2B, 2 RBI.
And the 3-hit club in Bakersfield's 14-inning, 21-hit, 11-9 victory: Dominic D'Anna, Yovan Gonzalez, and Juan Silverio.
There was a trace of pitching in that game, as well, notably from Kyle Lotzkar, who finished out the final three innings in the fashion that once made him a top prospect: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K.
Jeff Gelalich: 3-5, 2B, 2 R.
Seth Mejias-Brean: 2-4, 2B, BB.
Pedro Diaz: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 1 K.
Felix Perez: 2-6, HR.
Billy Hamilton: 1-3, 4 BB, SB, 3 R.
And of course, that burly-armed phenom, Corky Miller: 2/3 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K.
