Minors recaps 4 Sep 05

Three former major league pitchers, Kerry Lightenberg, Randy Choate and Matt Herges, combined to shut down the Beavers on one run and six hits. No Beavers batter had more than one hit and Nick Trzesniak was 0-3 in his return to the starting lineup after a 4 game absence.

4 West Tenn pitchers combined to shut out the Baybears for 11 innings on just 2 hits(both by Mobile starting pitcher Jose Oyervidez). In fact, West Tenn was also shut out for 10.2innings before breaking a scoreless tie with 2 out in the bottom of the 11th. It is entirely possible that the participants were more focused on family and friends and the recovery from the storm Katrina than on a baseball game. With all that has happened, and right in their own back yard, its amazing that the players can even play ball at all.

Lake Elsinore:
Clay Hamilton picked up his 11th win as he held Bakersfield to 1 run on 4 hits in the 7-1 victory. He struck out 6 and walked none. Colt Morton got back in the hr column with a 2 run shot(his 19th) in the 7th inning. Fernando Valenzuela jr and Drew Macias also contributed 2 hits each.

Ft Wayne:
Josh Alley had 2 hits, walked twice, scored a run and drove in a run while Matt Lauderdale smacked his 10th homer to power the Wizards to a 7-0 win over Dayton. 16th round draft pick, Brent Carter, continues to dominate since signing out of Alabama. He picked up his 2nd straight win with 6 shutout innings, allowing just 3 hits and striking out 8. So far as a pro, Carter (Alabama's all time strikeout leader) has allowed 16 earned runs in 84 innings with 79k's and a 1.71era.
