High A Dish: Chacin Unfazed By Promotion

California League

Prospect Of The Day

There was quite a pitchers’ duel in Stockton (Athletics) last night, with the winner making his high Class A debut. The opponent was very worthy of taking today’s honor, but Modesto (Rockies) righthander Jhoulys Chacin dominated the Ports for his first Cal League win. He tossed eight innings, allowing just five hits while walking one and striking out eight.

Prospect Nuggets

Stockton righthander Henry Rodriguez didn’t get a decision, but was on the unlucky side of the duel. He tossed 5 1/3, allowing just one hit while striking out 11 and walking just one…San Jose (Giants) righthander Henry Sosa improved to 3-1, 2.33 after pitching 6 2/3 and allowing two runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out five…Lancaster (Red Sox) first baseman Lars Anderson seems to be heating up. He went 2-for-4 last night with his 10th home run of the season.
What To Watch For Today

San Jose righthander Kevin Pucetas (7-0, 2.73) will try to keep his perfect record intact as he faces Bakersfield (Rangers).

Carolina League

Prospect Of The Day

Top performances were scarce in yesterday’s Carolina League action, but outfielder Jamie Romak led the way in Lynchburg’s (Pirates) 4-1 win over Wilmington (Royals). He was 2-for-4 with a run scored, two RBIs and his 14th home run of the season.

Prospect Nuggets

Wilmington righthander Edward Cegarra was on the losing end of Romak’s performance, tossing 6 2/3, allowing four runs on seven hits. He struck out four and once again kept his walk total down, giving just one free pass…Winston-Salem (White Sox) righthander John Ely’s tough season isn’t getting easier anytime soon. Last night he lasted just 3 2/3, allowing nine runs on nine hits and two walks. He struck out four and fell to 3-8, 4.66…Frederick (Orioles) righthander Tim Bascom’s start wasn’t pretty, but he still managed to get a win. He allowed six runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out five. He got 10 runs of support, however, and improved to 2-2, 5.17.

What To Watch For Today

The two first-half division winners, Myrtle Beach (Braves) and Potomac (Nationals) begin a three-game series tonight.

Florida State League

Prospect Of The Day

In a league said to favor pitchers, Fort Myers (Twins) righthander Deolis Guerra has been traveling in the middle of the road. But last night he showed a flash of what he could be. He tossed a complete game, allowing just three hits and three walks while striking out four to improve to 8-4, 4.32.

Prospect Nuggets

Sarasota (Reds) outfielder Drew Stubbs was 2-for-3 with his 18th double, but couldn’t get any more offense around him as the Reds got blanked 7-0…Clearwater (Phillies) DH Michael Taylor did some damage against Lakeland (Tigers) last night, launching a first inning, two-out, grand slam. Clearwater would win the game, but not as easily as expected. Lefthander Joe Savery pitched 6 2/3, allowing two runs (none earned) on four hits and two walks. He struck out six and the Threshers squeezed out a 6-5 victory.

What To Watch For Today

Two suspended games, Brevard County (Brewers) vs. Jupiter (Marlins) and Palm Beach (Cardinals) vs. Vero Beach (Rays), will be completed today as part of doubleheaders starting at 5 p.m. EDT.
