Out of the gate this morning, I will begin by saying congratulations to Domingo Santana and Maikel Franco, who were both voted player of the week in their respective leagues for the final week of the regular season.
Santana hit .484 (15 for 31) in 8 games for the Lancaster JetHawks, with 3 doubles, 4 home runs and 7 RBI in the JetHawks' playoff push, and Franco finished the season with 6 straight multi-hit games, going 15 for 27 (that's .556) over the span.
Domingo had 3 walks and scored a run for the JetHawks in their 5-1 win over Lake Elsinore, evening their best of 3 series at 1-1.
In Reading, the Trenton Thunder scored 3 runs in the 9th inning off of Colby Shreve to take game 2 of their series with the R-Phils, 4-1, and even the series at a game apiece. Reading got just 5 hits, wasting a good effort from Trevor May (5.1 IP, 1 run, 3 hits, 2 walks, 6 Ks). The series will move to Trenton for game 3.
In Tulsa, Josh Outman threw 7 shut out innings for the Drillers in their 3-0 game 2 win over Springfield. Outman allowed just 2 hits and 3 walks to help Tulsa even the series at 1-1.
In Frisco, the RoughRiders came form behind again to beat the Hooks, 3-2 and take a 2-00 lead in their series. Jonathan Singleton was 0 for 4 for the Hooks, who head home for game 3 facing elimination.
Only 2 HomeSiders in action in the majors last night: Michael Bourn had a walk in 4 at bats for the Braves in their 1-0 win over the Rockies, and Lendy Castillo threw 1.1 inning of relief for the Cubs, allowing a run on 2 hits and 2 walks in Chicago's 9-2 loss to Washington.
