From Jamie Ramsey:
"Louisville rained out…they’ll play 2 today…Chattanooga perfect so far in the 2nd half…Camilo Vazquez outstanding…Luis Bolivar with 3 hits…Sarasota clinches the Florida State League’s 1st-half West Division title…Congrats to manager Joe Ayrault, his staff and the team…Eric Eymann with 3 hits…Jay Bruce homers and doubles…Johnny Cueto pitching for the Reds today…Several Dragons see action in last night’s Midwest League All-Star Game…Billings opens their season with a win at Great Falls…Enerio Del Rosario with a fine effort for the Mustangs…GCL Reds weren’t so fortunate in their lid-lifter."
It's interesting with Billings and GCL Reds opening up. Del Rosario is a 21-year-old from the Dominican. This is his third pro season. He only allowed 99 hits and one home run in 122 2/3 ininngs coming into this year.
Juan Rafael, another 21-year-old Dominican, pitched five hitless ininngs of relief for the GCL. He's in his fourth year.
The Reds have to start producing Latin players to completely turn it around.
Also of note: Catcher Miguel Perez, on rehab from Louisville, homered for the GCL Reds.
