after the smoke cleared.........

I am short on time this morning, but here are some quick notes from Tuesday:

The Charlotte Knights have activated Greg Golson off the DL, and he went 1 for 3 with a walk in the Knights' 7-2 loss to the Braves.

The Chicago Cubs recalled Adrian Cardenas from AAA-Iowa, and with 2 outs in the bottom of the 8th inning, Adrian had a pinch hit single to break up A.J. Burnett's no-no!!  It was the 18th pinch hitting appearance for Cardenas with the Cubs.

Domonic Brown had a pinch hit single in his first major league at bat of the year in the Phillies 8-0 over the Nationals.  Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz had a hit each, with Ruiz knocking in his 58th run, and Antonio Bastardo and Kyle Kendrick combined for a 1-2-3 inning, striking out 2 of the 3 hitters they faced.

The BlueCalws romped over Delmarva, 9-1.  Maikel Franco and Kelly Dugan both homered, and Tim Carver added 3 doubles, and Willie Carmona got his first hit for Lakewood, and RBI single and a run scored!  The Claws a re now in a 3-way tie for 2nd place, 1 game behind West Virginia.

Brody Colvin made his AA debut and went 5 innings for the R-Phils in their 6-4 win in Richmond.

Jonathan Singleton (.284) had 2 hits and a walk, including his 14th home run for Corpus Christi in an 8-7 win over San Antonio.

Watch whatever highlight show you have to, but check out the diving catch by Michael Bourn!
