R.J. Swindle allowed an unearned run and Joe Bateman allowed an earned out of the bullpen... Desmond Jennings went 1-5 with a double... Justin Ruggiano and Alvin Colina each picked up 2 hits...

  1. Man I hope this becomes one of those games that Tim Beckham breaks out with.And is there a chance soon Wrigley gets promoted to AA or not?He was hitting better than Sweeney and I know he is older but in my opinion thats more of a reason to propmote him sooner to see if he is real or just living off the lower levels.
