Between it being a travel day for much of the majors, and rain throughout the northeast causing postponements all around the region, not much to report from Thursday.
Here it is, short and sweet:
Only 2 HomeSiders were in action in the majors, Quintin Berry (.286) who had a single in the Tigers 5-3 loss in Cleveland, and Mike Zagurski, who pitched a scoreless frame (1 walk, 1 K) for Arizona in their 3-1 loss to New York.
In Hagerstown, Chris Duffy (.385) had 3 more hits, including his 11th home run (and 2nd in 2 days) and drove in 4 more runs, and Miguel Alvarez (.286) had 4 hits, 3 of them doubles, in Lakewood's 8-6 loss to the Suns. Hagerstown took 3 of 4, and the Claws ended their road trip at 3-5 and return to New Jersey for the weekend to face West Virginia.
In Jupiter, the Hammerheads defeated the Clearwater Threshers, 7-4. Jim Murphy and Anthony Hewitt each homered, and red hot Cameron Rupp (6 for his last 12, with 4 walks) had 2 more hits and 2 walks.
Both Reading and Lehigh Valley were rained out.
Domingo Santana (.303) hit his 17th home run (RBI #78) for Lancaster, who lost at Lake Elsinore, 5-4.
Will Savage (10-4) pitched 7 good innings, allowing 3 runs on 8 hits, NO walks, for Albuquerque, in the Isotope's 3-2 loss in Round Rock. 2 of the 3 runs came in the deciding 7th inning, when Savage allowed 3 hits and threw a wild pitch, giving the Express the victory.
Jarred Cosart, who was promoted to AAA-Oklahoma City, will start for the RedHawks tonight.
