Tuesday, May 12th

The Big news of the Day is Evan Bigley was promoted to Fort Myers from Beloit. The reason behind that was Joe Benson punched a wall according to Lavelle and broke his hand. Bigley I think was the right choice to go up to Fort Myers. He was hitting .307 with 2 homeruns and 22 rbi's. He had a .340 obp and a .785ops. He was a 10th round pick by the Twins out of Dallas Baptist college. It was a good time to go because he is 21 years old because of college and needed to be challenged. It will be very interesting how he does.

  • Rochester Wrap: The Red Wings continue to be on a hotstreak as they completed a 4 game sweep of Charlotte. Anthony Swarzak pitched an uneven 6 innings, but did not give up any runs to lower his era to 1.70 on the season. Trevor Plouffe was the hitting star with 3 rbi's and Alexi Casilla had his 2nd triple of the year.
  • New Britain Beat: The Rockcats had another tough loss to connecticut. Cole Devries pitched another good game pitching 7 innings and just giving up 2 unearned runs. Danny Valencia returned from injury and did not miss a beat going 3-4. Yancarlos Ortiz went 2-3 to help Valencia.
  • Fort Myers Futures: The Miracle got another win behind another masterful pitching performance out of Carlos Gutierrez. Gutierrez went the first 6 innings and only gave up 3 hits and no runs. Chris Parmalee had another good game going 2-3 with a walk and his 5th homerun of the season. Henry Arias struggled giving up 4 runs in only a third of an inning. Blair Erickson picked up the save in relief.
  • Beloit Happenings: No Game

  • I want to thank Seth of SethSpeaks.net for allowing me to come on his podcast last night it was fun and I hope you all enjoyed it as well. Hopefully we can do it again sometime soon.

  • Tonight Shooter Hunt gets back on the horse for Beloit so lets all pull for him to get back on track after the short term in the bullpen.
