New Hampshire (Blue Jays) lefthander Brett Cecil shut out Connecticut through five innings yesterday, lowering his ERA to 2.91 in 52 2/3 Double-A innings. Cecil, who started the season by making four short starts for high Class A Dunedin, now has a combined 54-18 K-BB ratio on the season. He struck out five yesterday and walked just one.

Prospect Nuggets

Trenton (Yankees) center fielder Austin Jackson only had one hit in five at-bats, but his hit was his eighth home run of the year . . . Reading (Phillies) catcher Lou Marson went 1-for-3 and drew a pair of walks for a nice offensive night. Behind the plate, Marson also played well, throwing out both runners who attempted to steal against him.
