Stephen Faris: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 3 BB, 3 SO
Jonathan Ellis: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 3 SO

Faris provides another strong outing for the Missions, who spin their second straight shutout… I still can’t find anything on why Steve Garrison left Thursday’s start after just two innings, but here’s a cool article on the young southpaw.

High-ALake Elsinore 8, Stockton 7

Kellen KulbackiEric Sogard: 2-for-5, 2B, HR
Cedric Hunter: 2-for-5
Mitch Canham: 1-for-4, HR, HBP

Ernesto Frieri: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 4 HR, 1 BB, 6 SO

The wind was blowing 16 mph out to left, but only one (Kulbacki’s second) of the eight homers hit in this contest is described as having gone to that part of the field.

Low-AFort Wayne 11, Dayton 3

Rob Musgrave: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 1 SO

I will catch the Ems in Eugene on Tuesday. Woo-hoo!

RookieAZL Cubs 16, AZL Padres 15

Keisy Marte: 2-for-3, 2B, 2 BB
Jaff Decker: 2-for-4, 2B, HR, 2 BB, E
Edgar Garzon (1B-3B): 2-for-5
Kevin Hansen (PH-2B): 1-for-1, 3B

This is hilarious. The two teams combined for 31 runs, 35, hits, 7 errors, 15 walks, and 8 wild pitches. The nine-inning contest lasted 3 hours, 59 minutes… Decker continues his torrid start.

RookieDSL Nationals1 8, DSL Padres 0

Jonathan Galvez (DH): 0-for-2, BB
Rymer Liriano: 0-for-4

Paul DePodesta riffs on Galvez, noting the radically different playing conditions in the DSL. It’s worth remembering that the league SLG in 2007 was .320, which is much lower than that of MLB last year (.423).
