2008-08-07: Salt Lake did not play
So there were no Brandon Wood homers.

The entire PCL had the day off, and the Bees headed home to face the Fresno Grizzlies. Las Vegas went from a split decision in New Orleans to Sacramento for a four-game road set.

2008-08-07: Arkansas 9, Corpus Christi 7 #
Pettit: 1-4, 1 BB
Smith, Coby: 1-4, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K
Stavisky: 1-5, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 K
Smith, Cor: 3-5, 1 2B, 2 HR, 2 RBI
Sutton: 4-5
Trumbo: 2-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB
Denham: 4.1 IP, 7 R, 7 ER, 10 H, 1 K, 3 BB, 1 HR, 4.06 ERA
Rodriguez, Fe: (W, 7-10) (in relief), 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 K, 0 BB, 5.87 ERA
Rodriguez, R: (S, 5), 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 K, 0 BB, 2.25 ERA
Brian Stavisky's two-run jack in the top of the ninth decided this game. Mark Trumbo homered, a three-run shot in the fourth with nobody out; hot as he was earlier, it was his first homer since July 30. He's hitting .150/.200/.350 in August. In all, five balls off Travs bats left the yard, including one by Coby Smith and two by Corey Smith, giving the latter 22 on the season.

The Travs deployed all three Rodriguezes in this game, Francisco, Fernando, and Rafael. Fernando got the win and Rafael got the save, his fifth.

2008-08-07: Inland Empire 1, Rancho Cucamonga 2 #
Bourjos: 0-4
Mount: 0-3, 1 K
Conger: 0-4, 2 K
Toussaint: 2-4, 1 2B
Phillips: 1-3, 1 K
Walden: (W, 2-2), 7.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 9 K, 2 BB, 4.35 ERA
Bell: (H, 4), 1.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 K, 2 BB, 4.59 ERA
Herndon: (S, 13), 1.0 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 H, 0 K, 0 BB, 4.86 ERA
Neither starter gave up an earned run, though both of Rancho's two runs in the third were unearned thanks to a throwing error by third baseman Austin Gallagher. Jordan Walden, Trevor Bell, and David Herndon combined to four-hit Inland Empire. The 66ers picked up their lone run in the ninth with a wobbly save by Herndon, as he allowed consecutive one-out singles and a sac fly by Jaime Pedroza.
2008-08-07: Quad Cities 1, Cedar Rapids 10 #
Fuller: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 K
Jacobo: 4-4, 3 2B, 4 RBI
Davitt: (W, 5-7), 8.0 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 6 H, 7 K, 0 BB, 4.73 ERA
The River Bandits got out to an early 1-0 lead after the top of the second, but the Kernels answered right away with three in the bottom half on four singles and a fielding error by pitcher Richard Castillo; they never looked back. Cedar Rapids capped scoring with a big five run seventh that included a hit batter, a walk, two singles, a double, and a double steal of second and home by Hector Estrella and Jeremy Moore respectively.

First baseman Gabriel Jacobo had a terrific night at the plate, going 4-for-4 with three doubles and four RBIs, the first four-hit game for him at any level (he was with Orem prior to July 28). Michael Davitt pitched eight innings of one-run ball for the win, striking out seven and walking none.

2008-08-07: Helena 4, Orem 5 (10 innings) #
Jimenez: 1-5, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
Auer: 1-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 K
Brooks: 1-2, 2 BB, 1 K
Miller: 6.2 IP, 4 R, 1 ER, 7 H, 6 K, 0 BB, 1.32 ERA
Nabors: 2.2 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 5 K, 2 BB, 4.98 ERA
Scholl: (W, 3-1) (in relief), 0.1 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 K, 0 BB, 2.20 ERA
2008-08-07: AZL Cubs 1, AZL Angels 2 (5 innings) #
Evans: 1-2, 1 2B
Chatwood: (W, 1-2), 4.0 IP, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K, 3 BB, 3.74 ERA
Yahoo Weather reported thunderstorms in the Phoenix area, so I'm assuming "wet grounds" means they got dumped on. Having been in one of those monsoons, I can tell you that they happen in a big hurry.

Tyler Chatwood managed to sneak out of this game with a win when he didn't even pitch five innings thanks to Rule 10.17(b)(2):

If the pitcher whose team assumes a lead while such pitcher is in the game, or during the inning on offense in which such pitcher is removed from the game, and does not relinquish such lead, is a starting pitcher who has not completed ... four innings of a game that lasts five innings on defense ... then the official scorer shall credit as the winning pitcher the relief pitcher, if there is only one relief pitcher, or the relief pitcher who, in the official scorer's judgement was the most effective, if there is more than one relief pitcher
I hate that rule, by the way.

Terry Evans continued his rehab assignment, got a double and scored the first of the Angels' two runs. Evans' role in the Angels' future plans has probably been under-analyzed, mainly because he's been out so long with a shoulder injury. Jeff Sackmann's MLE calculator projects Evans as a .257/.293/.403 hitter in the Show based on the totality of his work in AAA; that's better than Gary Matthews, Jr.'s .223/.304/.330 2008 line, especially in the power department. Baseball Prospectus justifiably groused about Evans' lack of plate discipline (at press time for the 2008 book, he had an unacceptably high 4:1 K:BB ratio at the higher levels), but even there, he seems to be whittling away at the problem. In a small-sample-sized 104 at-bats, Evans has a 33:14 K:BB ratio, a lot closer to 2:1. There's hope, but as BPro said, Evans' skills will limit him to an all-or-nothing attempt to win a starting job. It's only the AZL, but he's hitting well so far, and there's enough time left in Salt Lake's season to get a better read on the 26-year-old's progress.

Zimmermann: (L, 0-2) (in relief), 2.0 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 H, 2 K, 0 BB, 4.08 ERA
Completed in "extras" because it was tied 3-3 in the seventh on Erik Kanaby's sac fly, but reliever Rob Zimmermann gave up the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth on Justin Henry's sac fly. The Loons went down in order in the bottom of the frame to end the game.
