Shell: (W, 7-3), 6.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 4 H, 5 K, 1 BB, 4.95 ERA
Pullin: 2.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 6.14 ERA
I had somebody over here the other day asking about Matt Brown and why wasn't I keeping tabs on his progress. Mainly that's because he didn't make Baseball America's top 30 prospect list this year, but that's far from being any kind of statement as to his quality as a player. Tonight he homered twice, once in the fourth and once in the sixth, both two-run shots off Travis Blackley. Brandon Wood also homered, a leadoff solo blast in the third; with the two jacks, Brown only trails Wood by two homers on the season (19 for Brown vs. 21 for Wood), but Brown has slightly better rate stats (.280/.358/.522 vs. .267/.338/.481). All those dingers came off the former Mariners top prospect Travis Blackley; life's not getting any easier for him in the Giants organization.

Brandon Wood also has a little seven-game on-base streak going. Juan Rivera went 1-for-4 with an RBI double; he's hitting .231 in small sample sizes with Salt Lake, and rapidly approaching the 50 AB threshold the Angels want him to get before returning to the big club. (With his Cal League rehab games, he now has a total of 49 at-bats in the minors.)

Finally, a very solid game by Steven Shell, who made his third straight start and got his third win in five games (the first two were in relief on August 11 and 14) by pitching a four-hit shutout through six innings.

2007-08-27: Springfield 10, Arkansas 3 #
Sandoval, F: 2-5, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 1 K
Rodriguez, S: 0-2, 2 BB
Collins: 1-4, 1 K
Fuller: 3-3
Gonzalez, M: (L, 7-4), 4.0 IP, 6 R, 6 ER, 8 H, 4 K, 3 BB, 2 HR, 3.33 ERA
Stertzbach: 1.2 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 6.45 ERA
Miguel Gonzalez's worst outing since a four-inning no-decision on May 20 was responsible for a the majority of the ten runs scored against the Travs on their final game at home on the season. Travs pitching hit four batters in the game, two of them by Gonzalez — and yet he exited the game with the second-best ERA in the Texas League (3.33).

Cody Fuller went 3-for-3, and Freddy Sandoval went 2-for-5 with a triple in the loss.

2007-08-27: Rancho Cucamonga did not play
2007-08-27: Cedar Rapids 3, Quad Cities 6 #
Mount: 1-5
Bourjos: 1-4
Trumbo: 1-3
Conger: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K
Sweeney: 2-3, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Johnson: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K
Shearer: (L, 1-2), 2.2 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 3 H, 1 K, 4 BB, 1.93 ERA
The Swing got out to a four-run lead early and never looked back, helped by four errors by the Kernels, who allowed three unearned runs. Starter Kelly Shearer — who appears to have been used in an emergency start, his first of the season — took the loss after only 2.2 innings. Mark Sweeney homered, a solo shot in the ninth, his 17th of the season.
2007-08-27: Orem 1, Idaho Falls 8 #
Brossman: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K
Davitt: (L, 0-3), 4.1 IP, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 H, 5 K, 2 BB, 6.04 ERA
2007-08-27: AZL Angels 8, AZL Royals 2 #
Contreras: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K
Castillo: 1-5, 1 RBI, 4 K
Loman: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 K
Knazek: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Perez, J: (W, 1-1), 6.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 10 K, 0 BB, 1 HR, 3.90 ERA
Seth Loman blasted a grand slam in the fifth for his ninth home run of the season. Jose Perez collected his first win in a dominant six inning performance, allowing only one run on a solo homer while fanning ten.
2007-08-27: Tacoma 7, Las Vegas 6 #
Abreu: 2-5, 2 2B
Young: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
LaRoche: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 K
Moeller: 2-2, 1 RBI, 2 BB
Lundberg: (L, 7-6), 4.1 IP, 7 R, 7 ER, 10 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 5 HR, 6.33 ERA
Akin: 3.2 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 6 K, 0 BB, 4.82 ERA
Andy LaRoche got his first hits since coming back from the DL, and Chad Moeller was perfect at the plate in a game the 51's lost due to an amazingly bad outing by Spike Lundberg. Lundberg gave up seven runs, all earned, on five home runs, three of them back-to-back-to-back jacks in the fourth given up to Jeremy Reed, Mike Morse, and Bryan LaHair. The trio felt obliged, at first because of hecklers in the crowd:
"It's funny because the hecklers were kind of giving him a hard time. I said 'Way to go get that one' and he said 'I had to,'" LaHair said. "After Jeremy said that, I was laughing pretty hard. Then I hit one and told him 'I had to.' It was a funny thing, a little joke between us."
The five homers were a career high for Lundberg; after that power display, he turned around and hit the next batter, which at least makes you think it might have been an intentional pitch.
2007-08-27: Jacksonville 7, Mobile 15 #
Gonzalez, J: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 BB, 1 K
Dewitt: 1-5
Ellis: 4-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB
Dunlap: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K
Paul: 1-3
Orenduff, J: 0-1, 1 K
Hammes: 0-1, 1 K
Orenduff, J: 2.1 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 3 H, 4 K, 2 BB, 4.03 ERA
Hammes: (L, 5-8) (in relief), 2.1 IP, 8 R, 8 ER, 5 H, 1 K, 3 BB, 5.11 ERA
Justin Orenduff followed up his best performance of the year with his worst since May 23, though he did not get tagged for the loss thanks to an offense that rallied to tie the game 5-5 after four and a half frames were in the books, but then the Bay Bears put a ten spot on the board, four of those due to Rusty Ryal's grand slam. Zach Hammes loaded the bases twice, plunked two batters (one of them with the bases loaded), and left the bases loaded for Joey Norrito, who gave up the Ryal's slam.

A.J. Ellis was perfect at the plate (4-for-4) and homered in the loss.
