Orioles right fielder Nolan Reimold had two extra-base hits, Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler went 4-for-4 and Braves righthander Tommy Hanson struck out more than one batter per inning in his Double-A debut.

EASTERN LEAGUE

Prospect Of The Day
Bowie (Orioles) right fielder Nolan Reimold didn’t start the year so well. In April, Reimold hit .232/.324/.347. But Reimold has enjoyed a fruitful May, raising his season line to .259/.337/.448, including last night when Reimold went 2-for-5 with his fifth home run and sixth double. It was Reimold’s sixth consecutive game with at least one hit.

Prospect Nuggets
Trenton (Yankees) right fielder Jose Tabata has had his struggles this year, but the 19-year-old did a bit of everything last night. Tabata went 2-for-3 with his fifth double of the year and a walk. Tabata also stole his fifth base of the season and threw out a runner at home plate for an outfield assist . . . Tabata hit his double off of Portland (Red Sox) prospect Michael Bowden. The righthander allowed one run in five innings with no walks and three strikeouts . . . Harrisburg left fielder Justin Maxwell went 2-for-5 with his seventh home run and 11th stolen base.


What To Watch For Today
Akron (Indians) is at Altoona (Pirates) for a doubleheader . . . Trenton (22-14) is one and a half games ahead of Portland (22-15) in the Northern Division, and the two teams square off again today in Trenton.

SOUTHERN LEAGUE

Prospect Of The Day
You’re probably used to seeing Tommy Hanson’s name in Nathan Rode’s High A Dish. Those days are over, however, as the Braves promoted their talented young righthander from Myrtle Beach to Mississippi. In Hanson’s first start for Mississippi, he allowed one run in 6 1/3 innings and racked up seven strikeouts. The four walks were a bit high, but Hanson still struck out batters and kept runs off the board in his Double-A debut.

Prospect Nuggets
Huntsville (Brewers) third baseman Mat Gamel now has nine home runs and a .367/.426/.665 line in 158 at-bats after going 2-for-6 with a home run yesterday . . . Carolina (Marlins) center fielder Cameron Maybin went 2-for-5 and hit his fourth double . . . Michael Saunders has had better games than yesterday’s. The West Tenn (Mariners) right fielder went 1-for-4 and struck out three times.

What To Watch For Today
First-place Huntsville is 17-3 at home and 11-8 on the road. The Stars are on the road today at Tennessee (Cubs).

TEXAS LEAGUE

Prospect Of The Day
The early indications seem to be that Tulsa (Rockies) center fielder Dexter Fowler is starting to put it all together. The toolsy outfielder went 4-for-4 with a double yesterday, raising his slash stats to .296/.390/.500 in 142 at-bats.

Prospect Nuggets
Jess Todd is making a good impression in Double-A. In the Springfield (Cardinals) righthander’s second Double-A start, he allowed just two hits in six shutout innings, walking none and striking out two . . . Defensive whiz shortstop Hainley Statia went 2-for-4 with two doubles, giving him eight doubles on the year . . . Frisco (Rangers) lefthander Matt Harrison lasted 5 2/3 innings, allowing one run and on walk to go with his five strikeouts.

What To Watch For Today
Corpus Christi (Astros) righthander will pitch at San Antonio (Padres), which sends lefthander Steve Garrison to the mound . . . Springfield righthander Clayton Mortensen pitches tonight at Arkansas.
