PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE
Prospect Of The Day
At some point, one would expect Brandon Wood (Angels) to take a day off every now and then. Not so. With a home run (24) and a double (17)—and now with 10 home runs in his past 15 games—the Salt Lake shortstop just keeps plugging along. Today he became the first player this season to repeat as No. 1 on the Prospect Hot Sheet.
Not to be outdone by Wood, Las Vegas 3B Blake DeWitt (Dodgers) went 3-for-4 yesterday, and now is batting .500/.500/1.000 in 16 July at-bats . . . Tucson RHP Max Scherzer (Diamondbacks) struck out seven in a three-inning start yesterday . . . Omaha 1B Kila Ka’aihue (Royals) went 3-for-4 with a home run (two), four RBIs and three runs scored . . . Memphis 3B David Freese (Cardinals) hit his 19th home run in a 2-for-5 effort.
Prospect Of The Day
Buffalo left fielder Trevor Crowe (Indians) continued his remarkable turnaround by hitting two home runs (four) yesterday, one from each side of the plate. It was all part of a 3-for-6 effort in which he drove in four runs in the Bisons’ 12-2 laugher of a win.
A pair of 24-year-old Richmond infielder have begun to heat up in July. SS Brent Lillibridge (Braves) went 3-for-5 yesterday with a triple (three) and two runs scored. 3B Diory Hernandez, who also has played second base and shortstop, went 2-for-3 with his 18th double . . . Pawtucket RHP Michael Bowden (Red Sox) dropped to 0-2, 5.17 in giving up five runs in 5 2/3 innings to Rochester yesterday. The 21-year-old struck out six and walked none, but he did surrender nine hits, including two home runs . . . Buffalo LHP David Huff (Indians) cruised to a win with five one-run innings at Durham. He went 2-0, 0.90 in two starts this week, going 10 innings and logging seven strikeouts, three walks, one solo home run and just three total hits.
What To Watch For Today
Syracuse LHP Brett Cecil (Blue Jays) makes his Triple-A debut at home against Scranton.
