Around the Farm: August 11
Chen Lee-RP, Akron: IP, 2 K
- Cord Phelps-2B, Columbus: 2-4, 2 1B. Phelps has hit in 7 of his last 8, and is 10-32 over that span.
- Wes Hodges-1B, Columbus: 2-4, 2B, 2 R. Back-to-back multi-hit efforts for Hodges.
- Anthony Reyes-SP, Akron: IP, H, 7 ER, 6 BB. Reyes struck out the first batter he faced, and the next two grounded out. After that though, Reyes did his best Ricky Vaughn impression, walking the next 5 and mixing in 3 wild pitches. A RBI single and another walk later, Reyes was mercifully done for the day.
- Matt Packer-RP, Akron: 7 IP, 3 H, 4 K, 3 BB. Ahh, much better. Packer did allow 3 inherited runners to score, but held down Reading for 7 innings, allowing the Aeros to climb back into the game. He even picked two runners off first.
- John Drennen-OF, Akron: 3-5, 2B, 2 R. Multi-hit games in 3 of his last 4, and 4 of his last 6.
- Carlos Rivero-SS, Akron: 2-4, HR (5), 2 RBI, R, CS. Another down year for Rivero, whose OPS is at an even .600.
- Delvi Cid-OF, Lake County: 2-4, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 R, BB, SB. Stolen base number 58 for Cid, who is hitting .302/.348/.465 over his last 10.
- Kevin Rucker-OF, Mahoning Valley: 2-3, HR (1), RBI, BB, 2 R. 2007 47th round pick with his first HR for the Scrappers.
- Isaias Encarnacion-RP, DSL Indians: 2 IP, 2 H, ER, 4 K, 2 BB. Just turned 19 years old, Encarnacion has 13 K in 11 2/3 IP...but also 14 BB.
- Erik Gonzalez-3B, DSL Indians: 2-4, 2 1B. 18-year old 3B is putting up an OPS over .800 so far in the DSL.
