Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Thursday, June 27: Sal Romano, Dayton . . . 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K. After a protracted rough patch, the formidable New Englander has apparently gotten his groove back. It's the second straight start in which he's copped this coveted honor.
Also notable . . .
Logan Uxa: The recent 32nd-rounder (Arkansas State), playing first base and batting cleanup for the AZLs, went 2 for 3 with a pair of triples, a walk, and 3 RBIs.
Kevin Franklin: 1-3, 2B, BB, R: First mention here for the second-round pick and recent signee.
Ronald Bueno: 3-4, BB, 3 R, SB. A Bueno day.
Jakub Izold: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K. The Slovakian lefty comes up with a performance to build on.
Zach Vincej: 3-5, R, RBI. The slick shortstop is 14 for 25 in his last six games. Now batting .280. Not sure why he was replaced in the ninth.
Ben Klimesh: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K in the 9th inning.
Donald Lutz: 2-3.
Chad Reineke: 8 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K. ERA sits at 3.12. Underrated perhaps, but very productive for the Bats.
Denis Phipps: 2-4, 2B, R, 3 RBI, SB.
Kyle Waldrop: 2-4, 2B, HR.
Juan Silva: 1-3, HR, 2 BB, 3 RBI.
Steve Selsky: 2-4, HR.
Pat Doyle: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, Sv.
Humberto Valor: 2-3, 2B, BB, 2 RBI for the Billings shortstop.
