I'll be updating when scoring or other notable plays take place, if anyone is interested. Hopefully Hicks continues his hot streak! Right now it's 0-0 in the bottom of the first inning, and Darin Mastroianni walked and promptly stole second base (4th steal of season for him).

After giving up a leadoff single, Albers gets out of trouble with a K, a pickoff and a ground out. No damage done.

Albers is one of a handful of lefties who could see an in-season promotion this year. And hopefully that happens, because it's a weak spot, prospect-wise.

Aaron Hicks leads off the 4th with a double to right field. If I'm doing my counting right, that's 3 extra base hits in his last 3 games. And 5 total hits.

Hicks scores on Deibinson Romero single. 1-0 NB. Dolence sacrifice bunts Romero (who had advanced to second on the throw) to third base. Danny Lehmann flies into double play, Romero out at home.

Romero singles him in. Great to see Hicks doing this. Also good to see if Romero can bounce back and get his career going again.

Romero looked good at the plate a few nights ago when I was there -- 3 hits including a double. Fielding wasn't spectacular, though.

Then, after a Josh Johnson run scoring single, Albers gets a sacrifice bunt out, and 2 groundball outs, to end a long inning. 4-1 bad guys in the middle of the 5th inning.

Thanks for keeping these updates going. It's good to hear about what is happening on the farm.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Thanks! No problem. I figured that morning baseball might appeal to a few people.
