FRIDAY, JUNE 8
â€¢ Indians lefthander Chuck Lofgrenâ€™s spot start for Triple-A Buffalo on Friday didnâ€™t go so well as the 21-year-old allowed six runs on seven hits over five innings. Lofgren struck out seven and walked three.
â€¢ Double-A Erie second baseman Michael Hollimon went 4-for-5 with a pair of doublesâ€”both off Blue Jays righthander Jesse Litsch in the Seawolvesâ€™ 8-4 loss to New Hampshire. It was Litschâ€™s worst outing of the season but he still earned win No. 6, allowing four runs on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings.
â€¢ Double-A Mississippi outfielder Brandon Jones went 3-for-5 and hit his 10th home run of the year in the M-Bravesâ€™ 12-3 win against Birmingham.
â€¢ Double-A Mobile outfielder Carlos Gonzalez homered twice and Justin Upton added his eighth home run since being called up from high Class A Visalia in the BayBearsâ€™ 10-3 win against Montgomery. Biscuits righthander Chris Mason left after just three innings after allowing six runs on five hits and walking three.
â€¢ High Class A Kinston catcher/outfielder Chris Gimenez hit home runs No. 13 and 14 in the Indiansâ€™ 21-6 win against Myrtle Beach.
â€¢ Low Class A Kannapolis righthander Faustino De Los Santos struck out 10 over six innings, but allowed four runs on five hits and took the loss in Greensboroâ€™s 11-3 win against the Intimidators.
â€¢ The low Class A Asheville middle infield is one of the most dynamic in the minors, and shortstop Hector Gomez and second baseman Daniel Mayora combined for six RBIs in the Touristsâ€™ 10-3 win against Hickory. Mayora homered twice.
SATURDAY, JUNE 9
â€¢ Triple-A Tacoma catcher Jeff Clement is beginning to heat up. Clement went 3-for-4 with a pair of homers and drove in four during the Rainiersâ€™ 11-8 loss to Colorado Springs.
â€¢ Mets infielder Jake Gautreau had a career night at the plate in Triple-A New Orleansâ€™ 19-4 win against Iowa. Gautreau went 6-for-7 with four doubles, a home run and drove in eight. The Zephyrsâ€™ 19 runs and 25 hits both set franchise highs for the club.

â€¢ Nice night at the plate, but in the field . . . not so much. High Class A Brevard County catcher Angel Salome went 4-for-4 with three doubles, but Lakeland ran wild for eight steals in the Manateesâ€™ 5-3 win.
â€¢ Brewers righthander Jeremy Jeffress remained unbeaten at low Class A West Virginia, tossing five shutout innings in the Powerâ€™s 10-0 win against Lexington. The 2006 first-rounder allowed four hits, struck out three and walked two. On the season, Jeffress is 2-0, 1.98 in 14 innings.
