Brett Wallace is back in the lineup! Wallace was 0-3, walked, and scored.
- Jarrett Hoffpauir hit a home run and was 2-4
Brad Emaus was 1-4 with a 2-run double.
Luis Perez started and pitched 6 scoreless innings, 4 Ks and 2 walks. He has a 5.54 ERA on the season, with very poor walk and strikeout numbers so far.
- David Cooper had the big day for New Hampshire, going 3-5 with 2 home runs. His overall numbers aren't great, but he is mashing recently - .333/.381/.769 in his last 10 games. He does have 14 homers this season as well.
Adeiny Hechavarria was 2-5 with a pair of singles. .222/.310/.333 in AA.
- Travis Snider had 4 hits. I'm thinking he's back with the team after the break, you?
Eric Thames was 0-2 but walked three times and scored a couple of runs. .278/.356/.475 with 14 home runs. Pretty good for his first taste of AA.
- Shawn Bowman had an RBI double and was 1-5.
- Ray Gonzalez did well in his start (7 IP, 2 runs, 2 walks, 3 K, lots of groundouts)
- Danny Farquhar pitched 2 scoreless innings in relief. Unimpressive numbers (40/31 K/BB, 5.18 ERA) on the season
Dunedin lost to Brevard County 6-1. Not much to report from this one. Charles Huggins had a poor start and no one did much at the plate.
Lansing lost 4-2 to Great Lakes:

Ryan Goins had 2 hits, including a double. He also made his 12th error at shortstop.
- Matt Fields had a solid start, with 6 scoreless innings and 4 Ks/3 walks, and lots of groundouts.
Auburn beat Hudson Valley 7-2:
- Carlos Perez was 2-5 with a triple. Great play early this season, Perez is hitting .313/.384/.500 and he's not yet 20.
- Andy Fermin was 1-2 with 3 walks. .346/.452/.346 so far at Auburn (just 7 games there)
- Marcus Knecht was 2-3 with a double and walk. .306/.386/.387. Great to see that he's playing well and he hasn't shown his best skill, power, yet.

- Gustavo Pierre was 1-4 with a double.
- Lance Durham was 1-4 with a home run. .237/.348/.475 with 3 homers and 5 doubles. Like the peripheral numbers other than the Ks, hope the contact skills come.
- Casey Lawrence continues to shine - 6 one-run innings yesterday, with 3 Ks and just 1 walk. 0.83 ERA on the season. He's 22 so let's move him up.
The GCL Jays lost to the GCL Tigers, 2-1:
Shawn Hill made his first rehab start. He went 5 innings, striking out 5 and walking no one. 1 run.
- No one did much of anything at the plate.
