De Fratus on comeback trail

In Durham Wednesday, the Bulls topped the IronPigs, 6-4.  Domonic Brown had 2 more hits, including a double and an RBI, and is now 6 for 12 in the 3 games since being activated.   Justin De Fratus has returned to Lehigh Valley, and threw a scoreless 9th inning for the Pigs, striking out 2 of the 3 hitters he retired.

The news was bad from Portland also, where the Sea Dogs held Reading to just 2 hits in a 12-0 bombing of the R-Phils.  Trevor May walked 8 hitters and allowed 6 runs in 5 innings.  D'Arby Myers and Cody Asche had the hits for Reading.

Clearwater's game was suspended in the 6th inning, tied at 2-2 with Bradenton.

In Midland, the Rock Hounds and Hooks split a pair of games, with Midland winning the opener, 5-0, and Corpus Christi coming back in the nightcap, 4-1.  Matt Rizzotti had 3 hits and 2 RBI  on the day for Midland, and Jonathan Singleton had 3 hits for the Hooks.

In Lancaster, Domingo Santana (.310)  hit his 15th home run and drove in 3 runs for the JetHawks in their 9-0 trouncing of San Jose.  Domingo has 74 RBI, which is second best in the California League.

In Iowa City, Adrian Cardenas (.325) had a hit and 3 walks to help the Cubs to 2-1, 11-inning win over New Orleans...........In Nashville, the Sounds dropped an 8-5 game to Round Rock.  Jason Jaramillo was 0 for 3, but drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, and Jesus Sanchez tossed another scoreless frame for the Sounds.  Sanchez' ERA for the season is 1.46 in 49.2 innings combined between AA and AAA, and has thrown 4 straight shut out innings since his promotion.
