High A Dish: Grand Doolittle, Ginley tosses one-hitter

California League

Prospect Of The Day

First baseman Sean Doolittle simply won’t go away. He had just one hit in three at-bats last night, but he drew three walks and his fourth-inning grand slam made big difference in the 9-8 win over Lake Elsinore (Padres).

The grand slam was part of a seven-run fourth inning for Stockton (Athletics), putting the Ports up 7-1. The Storm continued to put up some offense, but Stockton was able to slip away with the one-run win.

It was Doolittle’s 11th home run of the season and he is now hitting .353/.432/.691 in 139 at-bats.

Prospect Nuggets

Inland Empire (Dodgers) third baseman Josh Bell went 1-for-2 with his fifth home run…Lefthander James Adkins went 6 2/3, allowing just one run on four hits and four walks while striking out three…Ben Snyder’s record is still perfect for San Jose (Giants) as he improved to 5-0. He went seven innings allowing no runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out five.

What To Watch For Today

Lefthander Kasey Kiker takes the hill against High Desert (Mariners). In four starts he’s 1-0, 6.20 and has allowed 30 hits in 20 innings.

Carolina League

Prospect Of The Day

Lefthander Aaron Poreda seems to have figured out how to win when your own team doesn’t give much run support: Don’t let the other team score at all.

Poreda went six innings allowing only three hits and two walks while striking out five to earn his third straight win. He is now 3-2, 2.34 on the year.

Prospect Nuggets

Kinston (Indians) left fielder Nick Weglarz went 1-for-2 with his fourth home run of the season…Brandon Erbe was tagged with a loss after allowing six runs on eight hits against Salem (Astros)…Astros left field James Van Ostrand did the damage, hitting his first home run of the year, a two-run shot in the fifth, the virtual nail in the coffin for Erbe…Blake Wood had a quality start, but was handed a loss nonetheless. He went seven innings allowing three runs on three hits while walking one and striking out seven.

What To Watch For Today

Lefthander Daniel Moskos has kept the run total down in his last two starts and will take his 3-1, 3.72 to the mound against a struggling offense today in Winston-Salem (White Sox).

Florida State League

Prospect Of The Day

Righthander Kyle Ginley made just his second start yesterday for Dunedin (Blue Jays). In his first start he allowed just one run on two hits in five innings.

He bested that yesterday in seven innings tossing a one-hitter and striking out four. He is now 2-0, 0.75.

Prospect Nuggets

Catcher J.P. Arencibia took care of the Blue Jays offense, going 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and run scored…Lakeland (Tigers) righthander Duane Below went 7 1/3, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and struck out 10, but didn’t get a decision as the game went into extras and Lakeland prevailed in the 11th…Outfielder Drew Stubbs went 2-for-5 with a triple and RBI in a 7-2 win over Fort Myers (Twins)…Righthander Jeff Manship took the loss, allowing six runs on 10 hits over four innings. He did strike out eight though.
