Minor League Roundup - 6/9

Danny Herrera got his first win in Double-A

Frisco hurler Eric Hurley was ejected for hitting a batter after just 3 2/3 innings, but he struck out seven in that span. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of Saturday's action in the minor leagues.

AAA: Oklahoma 5 – Round Rock 6
L – Williams (1-1)
HR – Botts (5, 6), Relaford (4)


John Koronka (4.66 ERA/.283 BAA) walked the bases loaded in the first inning and then one more in the second, but he still settled down to post a quality start.

Despite throwing 114 pitches in six innings, Koronka gave up just two runs on three hits, walking four and fanning six.

Left fielder Jason Botts (.317/.421/.513) was 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, and two walks.

Desi Relaford hit a solo home run for his only hit of the game in the eighth inning.

Eric Hurley was ejected in the bottom of the fourth inning for hitting Brant Colamarino – who had homered off him earlier in the game – with a pitch. But Hurley did impressive work before being tossed. The right-hander struck out seven in 3 2/3 innings, allowing one run on three hits.

Lefty Danny Herrera (3.72 ERA/.278 BAA) picked up his first win at the Double-A level with 3 1/3 solid innings of relief. The Odessa native allowed one run on two hits, walking one and fanning five.

Designated hitter Jim Fasano (.296/.343/.504) was 1-for-4 with a two run homer, his seventh long ball of the season.

German Duran and Steve Murphy each singled twice in four at-bats while right fielder Anthony Webster was 2-for-4 with a double.

Third baseman Chris Davis (.263/.306/.507) hasn't hit for much power lately, but he has steadily raised his average. That continued on Saturday, as he went 2-for-3 with a couple of runs batted in.

Starting pitcher Kendy Batista yielded three runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings. He walked one and struck out two.

Siderarming reliever Josh Giles (5.34 ERA/.233 BAA) allowed just one hit in 2 1/3 scoreless innings.

Shortstop Marcus Lemon (.375/.447/.469 in June) reached two more times with a single and a walk.

Third baseman John Whittleman had been slumping, but he hit his 10th home run of the season in the game.
