Scranton blanks Columbus, 3-0 (game 1, 7 innings)
- Chien-Ming Wang, rehabbing, looked ready to return to the majors. Wang gave up 4 hits in 7 innings of scoreless ball, with 1 strikeout, and 12 groundouts against 8 flyouts. He may get one more rehab start but he’ll likely be back in the bigs soon assuming no setbacks. According to Chad Jennings (who spoke to Brian Cashman), his velocity topped out at 92, so maybe he’s not quite ready.
- Reegie Corona, recently promoted, was 0 for 3.
- Austin Jackson was 0 for 2.
- Todd Linden was 2 for 3.
- Shelley Duncan was 1 for 3 with his 11th homer of the season.
Scranton falls to Columbus, 2-1 (8 innings)
- Brian Bruney, rehabbing, started, giving up a run on 2 hits in 1 inning of work. He also struck out 1. His fastball was in the 92-94 range, according to Chad Jennings.
- Josh Towers was great in relief, giving up just 2 hits and a walk in 6 innings of work.
- Anthony Claggett gave up a run on a hit and 2 walks to get the loss.
- Reegie Corona was 0 for 4.
- Austin Jackson was 1 for 3 with a walk.
- Eric Duncan was 1 for 2 with a walk and his 1st homer of the year.
- PJ Pilittere was 2 for 3, raising his average to .320 on the season. Could he be better than Kevin Cash right now? I think so.
Trenton beaten by Binghamton, 2-1 (7 innings, game 1)

Trenton falls to Binghamton, 4-3
- Jason Stephens started, giving up a run on 1 hit and a walk in 5 innings, and striking out 4.
- Michael Dunn struggled, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks in 2 innings, though he did stirke out 4.
- Colin Curtis was 2 for 4.
- Jorge Vazquez once again had half of his team’s hits, going 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and a homer. Vazquez is slugging .633 on the season (and hitting .329), showing off the power that led him to be referred to as the Albert Pujols of the Mexican League. Could a promotion to AAA be in order? Unfortunately, Juan Miranda and Shelley Duncan are blocking him.
