Marlinsâ€™ righthander Chris Volstad was expected to make his Double-A debut Sunday, after going 8-9, 4.50 in 126 innings at high Class A Jupiter.
Volstad, Floridaâ€™s first-round pick in 2005 and No. 1 prospect overall, was called up to Carolina late Saturday and was scheduled to take the mound for the Mudcats against Jacksonville.
â€¢ Tigersâ€™ righthander Yorman Bazardo pitched a nine-inning complete game in Triple-A Toledoâ€™s 4-1 win against Richmond. Bazardo allowed an unearned run on four hits, struck out four and walked two and improved to 8-5, 3.93 in 110 innings for the Mud Hens.
â€¢ Yankees righthander Ian Kennedy made his Triple-A debut for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, and he did not disappoint. The 2006 first-round pick tossed six shutout innings, allowing just two hits, in the Yankeesâ€™ 3-0 loss to Rochester.
â€¢ Phillies lefthander Josh Outman made his Double-A debut for Reading, allowing four runs on as many hits and walking six in the R-Philsâ€™ 9-3 loss to Trenton. Outman, who went 10-4, 2.45 with 117 strikeouts in 117 innings at high Class A Clearwater, was promoted last week.
â€¢ Devil Rays righthander Wade Davis visited the loss column for the first time all season, mainly because Double-A Montgomery provided him with no run support in the Biscuitsâ€™ 2-0 loss to Birmingham. Davis allowed two runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out seven. Combined between high Class A Vero Beach and Montgomery this season, Davis is now 7-1, 1.98 with a 137-38 strikeout-walk ratio in 127 innings.
â€¢ Three Double-A Tulsa arms combined for a one-hitter in the Drillersâ€™ 4-1 win against Arkansas. Righthander Ching-Lung Lo allowed a run on one hitâ€”by Travsâ€™ center fielder Bradley Coonâ€”walked five and struck out four over seven innings. Relievers Jarrett Grube and Steven Register were perfect through the eighth and ninth innings to complete the one-hitter. Register picked up his 30th save of the season.
â€¢ High Class A Myrtle Beachâ€™s 9-8 win against Lynchburg lasted 15 innings, but Pelicansâ€™ third baseman Eric Campbell had the best line of the night. Campbell went 3-for-7 with a pair of home runs, and is now hitting .223/.299/.400 with 13 homers and 42 RBIs in 265 at-bats.
