Light one today, as Akron was off and the three teams that did play combined for a whopping two (2) runs. So not much to write about on the offensive side of things.
Matt LaPorta, LF-COL: 2-4, 2 1B. Columbus only managed one run on 5 hits yesterday, and LaPorta's 2-4 day raised his season line to .333/.406/.651. If Hafner's wrist ends up being a DL situation, LaPorta could be flailing at sliders out of the strike zone in Cleveland later this week.
Russ Canzler, 1B-COL: 2-3, 2B, K. Heating up after a slow start, Canzler is now at .268/.314/.387 overall.
Scott Barnes, RP-COL: 2 2/3 IP, 2 K, BB. Barnes has been working out of the bullpen lately, allowing 3 ER in 8 1/3 IP since moving out of the rotation. It's unclear at this point whether the move is strictly due to the arm soreness Barnes had felt at the end of April or if this is a long-term move.
Shawn Armstrong, RP-CAR: IP, H, 3 K. Armstrong continues to live up to his name, as he's now thrown 20 1/3 innings for Carolina, allowing just 1 ER while striking out 28 and walking 10.
Carlos Moncrief, RF-CAR: 2-4, 2 1B, K. Moncrief was the only Mudcat with more than one hit yesterday, as they were shut out by the Salem Red Sox and their 1st round pick Matt Barnes. Moncrief is 4-9 in his last 2 games and is up to .252/.345/.463 overall.
Felix Sterling, SP-LCC: L (2-2), 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 6 K, 2 BB. The 6'3", 200lb 19-year old righty has been outstanding for the Captains so far this year, going 2-2 with a 2.85 ERA, with 40 K and 19 BB in 47 1/3 innings pitched. He gave up runs in each of the first two innings yesterday, which was enough for the Captains to drop a 2-1 pitchers duel.
Francisco Lindor, DH-LCC: 2-4, R, K. Lindor has recorded two hits in six straight games, and is up to .327/.372/.490 in 35 games for the Captains this year. He was the only Captain with more than one hit yesterday and scored the only Lake County run. I'm running out of ways to tell you how good this kid is, so get out and see him for yourself.
