High A Dish: Sandoval Continues To Roll

California League

Prospect Of The Day

Pablo Sandoval is tired of being on helium watch. He wants to make the Hot Sheet and is giving good reason. Last night he went 2-for-5 with a double and home run. It was his 20th two-bagger and 10th round-tripper of the season.

Prospect Nuggets

Lefthander James Adkins had allowed just five hits through 2 1/3 innings, but was hit in the midsection by a comebacker off the bat of Eric Sogard. He tried to remain in the game, but was ultimately taken out. There is no word yet on his status…Wes Roemer got roughed up again, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out two and fell to 2-5, 5.51…Cedric Hunter went 2-for-4 with his 15th double and fourth stolen base…Lars Anderson doesn’t seemed bothered by his wrist anymore. He went 2-for-4 with a double, run and two RBIs.

What To Watch For Today

Lake Elsinore (Padres) has pulled away from the three-way tie in the Southern Division. The Storm is up against last place Inland Empire (Dodger) today.

Carolina League

Prospect Of The Day

Deunte Heath continues to roll for Myrtle Beach (Braves). He tied for the league lead with his eighth win. He went seven innings, allowing an unearned run on six hits, while walking three and striking out six. He is now 8-2, 3.25.

Prospect Nuggets

Gorkys Hernandez returned on May 29 and had one of his usual games last night. He went 3-for-3 with three singles, a run, RBI and his sixth stolen base…Brandon Erbe gave up a run on four hits and a walk in one inning of work. No cause for alarm needed though. There was a long rain delay after the first inning, so he was removed from the game…Aaron Poreda took the loss against Heath, tossing six innings and allowing four runs on six hits. He walked one and struck out three.

What To Watch For Today

Two games were suspended due to rain last night. Both will resume this evening. Potomac (Nationals) and Lynchburg (Pirates) will play a doubleheader. Kinston (Indians) and Wilmington (Royals) were tied in the bottom of the ninth, but there is only one out.

Florida State League

Prospect Of The Day

Jeff Manship threw his first career complete game in a 5-0 win over Dunedin (Blue Jays). He allowed just four hits and a walk over the nine innings while striking out five. He is now 7-2, 2.72.

Prospect Nuggets

Juan Francisco was 3-for-5 with three runs scored…James Skelton went 3-for-4 with three runs and his second and third doubles of the season…Danny Valencia hit his 19th double as part of a 3-for-3 night…Heath Rollins got touched up for six runs on seven hits in 5 2/3. He walked one and struck out three and dropped to 2-5, 4.39.

What To Watch For Today

Jeremy Hellickson, who was recently named to the FSL All-Star team will take the hill against a potent Sarasota (Reds) offense.
