I was Tweeting about Sano's HR when I looked up and saw the benches cleared. Here's the CR Gazette report with the Kernels' version of what happened. I suspect the Beloit perspective may be slightly (or not so slightly) different, of course.

Sano is truly something special.

After Butera threw out a base stealer, then the lead runner at second on the bunt attempt, I see why Butera is considered major league material. If Butera can get to the point where he is hitting even .250, he's not going anywhere. Also, Jamie Carroll is looking like a brilliant signing.

Great reports on the Twinks. And, it was nice to finally see the Twins squeak one out, but, just the day before, Dave St. Peter is telling the fan base to #KeepTheFaith: http://wp.me/p29VCs-8h. You have got to be kidding me. Give us just a little reason to believe the faith should be kept!! Sano looks great, but, it seems like he is a couple years away.

Does anyone have any info about why Pavano was taken out after 6 since he had only thrown like 70ish pitches?

Ullger said (And I think I wrote) that the top of the 7th was over 1/2 hour, which is really long for a pitcher to cool off. They just decided to go to the bullpen right then. THe 7th was set up perfectly for Duensing. It was actually really smart managing.

How long do you think Sano stays at Beloit this summer? Would they promote him to Ft Myers quickly or conservatively? I need to get down to Beloit asap to see this lineup.

Whatever Sano may or may not have done after hitting his homer, the word "pimp" used by the Kernels' manager is insulting and just wrong.
