High A Dish: Borbon Walks Off, Hicks Barely Misses Cycle

Julio Borbon hasn’t shown much power this year, but he did rise to occasion on Sunday.

California League

Prospect Of The Day

Julio Borbon picked a perfect time to hit his second home run of the season. He led off the home half of the 10th inning, with the game tied at two, with a long ball to clinch the win 3-2. On the night, Borbon was 4-for-4 with the home run and three singles, but he also swiped two bases, giving him 33 on the season.

Prospect Nuggets

Righthander Tim Alderson had a good start spoiled by a blown save and the eventual home run by Borbon. He held Bakersfield to four hits over seven innings with one walk and one strikeout…Sean Doolittle went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. He knocked in the lone run on a solo home run, his 16th of the year…Cedric Hunter was 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored…Barry Enright got a no decision, but pitched six strong innings, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six…Brett Anderson is back to his early-season form it seems. He picked up a win after throwing seven innings and allowing just one run on three hits and no walks while striking out seven.

What To Watch For Today

Henry Sosa (1-1, 2.00) will try avenge Alderson’s spoiled start as he takes the hill against Stockton (Athletics).

Carolina League

Prospect Of The Day

Myrtle Beach (Braves) shortstop Brandon Hicks fell a single short of the cycle in a 14-9 loss to Salem (Astros). Hicks was 3-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBIs, but the Pelicans committed five errors, giving the Avalanche every chance to win.

Prospect Nuggets

Brandon Snyder was 3-for-7 in a doubleheader against Potomac (Nationals). In the first game he hit his second triple of the season and in the nightcap he started at third base for just the second time this season…Jake Arrieta started the first game for Frederick (Orioles) and threw 5 2/3, allowing two runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out eight…Gorkys Hernandez was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored in the loss to the Avalanche.

What To Watch For Today

Only one game is scheduled for today. Winston-Salem (White Sox) travels to Kinston to play the Indians.

Florida State League

The FSL had its all-star game this weekend and returns to action today.
