rainy Friday

Friday night in Detroit, the Tigers defeated Cleveland, 7-5.  Michael Bourn (.305) had 2 hits and knocked in a run for the Indians..........In Denver, the Rockies won a wild one, 10-9 over the Padres.  Josh Outman allowed a hit and 2 walks in just .2 innings, and was charged with a blown save, his first of the year, in which he allowed an inherited runner to score...............In Milwaukee, the Phillies had their winning streak ended by the Brewers , who came from down, 4-0 to take a 5-4 walk-off win with a run in the 9th.  Cliff Lee could not hold the 4-0 advantage.  Mike Stutes retired 2 men in the 8th, but an error let a base runner get to 3rd base before Jeremy Horst came on for the final out of the 8th inning.  Horst was the loser, giving up a run  on 3 hits in the 9th.

The elevator ride continues for Troy Hanzawa, as he was brought back to Lehigh Valley.  The IronPigs were in Buffalo, where they split a pair of games with the Bisons.  Buffalo won the opener, 4-3.  Anthony Gose had an RBI double for the Bisons, and Darin Ruf and Steve Susdorf each had a hit and an RBI for the Pigs.  Lehigh Valley bounced back for a 4-0 win in the nightcap............Phillies lefthander John Lannan made a rehab start for the Threshers, and put in 4 frames, allowing just 2 runs, only 1 of which was earned, on 6 hits and 1 walk in Clearwater's 7-1 loss to the Blue Jays.  Lannan's return to the Phillies could see the end of Tyler Cloyd's regular starts in the Phillies rotation, and of Carlos Zambrano proves ready, Jonathan Pettibone could also be bumped.

Jonathan Singleton's return after suspension has stalled in Corpus Christi, where Singleton is just 1 for 10 since arriving from A-ball.  Singleton, Domingo Santana and Midland's D'Arby Myers combined to go 0 for 10 in the Hooks 5-0 win over the Rock Hounds.

Quintin Berry has made a clean start, playing his first game last night in Omaha, and looking like the player we remember.  Berry had a hit and a walk, stole 2 bases and scored a run for the Storm Chasers in a 5-2 loss to Oklahoma City.  Jonathan Villar had 2 hits and 2 RBI for the RedHawks.
