Fresno Wins' Musgroves Debut

Joe Musgrove took another big step in his baseball career with his first Triple-A start and it went well. He lasted five innings and tossed 80 pitches which 53 went for strikes. His calling card has been limiting walks so it's almost a surprise that he walked two batters. That's not bad at all for most pitchers, but this Joe Musgrove! (Note, I'm being facetious, it's only his fourth and fifth of the season). He had an 8/2 GO/AO ratio. Solid start for him and more are surely to come.

Gattis Leads Hooks Game 1 Win 5-2

I know we care more about how Evan Gattis is doing as a catcher than his offense. But, considering his offense at the major league level this season being poor, it's something to watch. Well, he's crushing the ball to the tune of a .389 batting average and five home runs in ten games. I know it's Double-A pitching, but it's nice to see.

Fisher Homers in Game 2 for a 6-0 Win

Derek Fisher is on a hot streak. A very big hot streak. His batting average is over .300 in the last ten games and he's hit four home runs in the last four games. He didn't hit one in the first game of this double header, but his two shots on Thursday night allowed for that. With his plate discipline stats improving as discussed yesterday, along with his BABIP creeping up from a low .256 and power on display, he's showing out.

This was also Evan Grills Double-A debut and was quietly dominant.

Tanielu Gets Fourth HR in Lancaster 2-1 Win

That's really all Tanielu needs to do for me in Lancaster is show power. He has proven he can hit. He's done that in ever stop with batting averages north of .300. Yes, it's with a high BABIP, but who doesn't with that high of a batting average? I'd also like to see more walks, but that's not really his style with such a good ability to drive a ball and make good contact. Getting a home run swing is easier in Lancaster and then he can refine it at higher levels.
