Durham Bulls - RHP Winston Abreu: It's a tough comparison, but doesn't Winston Abreu's start kind of remind you of what Grant Balfour did in Durham last year? He's pitched 25.1 innings, allowed 3 earned runs on 8 hits, struck out 37 and walked 8.
Montgomery Biscuits - LHP Jason Cromer: He's been a really solid starter for Durham and Montgomery, tossing 7 innings and allowing just 1 run yesterday.
Bowling Green Hot Rods - SS Tim Beckham: His 5th consecutive multi-hit game. He is now 11 for his last 20 with three walks.
Durham Bulls - 1B Alex Jamieson: Only Bulls starter without a hit.
Montgomery Biscuits - 1B Rhyne Hughes: Got the hat trick, striking out three times as part of an 0-5 night.
