Daniel McCutchen pitched very well tonight, throwing 7 2/3 scoreless innings. He walked none, fanned 7. For the year, he is now 11-6 with a 3.57 ERA. In his 123 2/3 innings this year, McCutchen has walked a ridiculously low 25 batters while fanning 94.

Tabata went 2-4 in the game. The bad news is that he was also picked off.

In West Virginia, Tony Sanchez went 3-4, with a double, HR, walk, 3 RBI's. He is now hitting .340. His OPS is well over 1.000.

In the same game, Aaron Pribanic (obtained in the Jack Wilson trade), went 5 innings for the win, giving up 4 hits, 1 walk, 2 K's. Pribanic is a ground-ball machine. His ratio of groundballs to fly balls has to be one of the highest in the minors (2.75 to 1).

Used to be you could only find a couple positive things per morning as you looked at the minor league scores from the night before. Now there are 4 or 5. The youngsters are playing well.

The minor leage teams are starting to win at a better rate too, compared to earlier in the year.

I plan on catching them in Erie at the end of the month. Hopefully Alderson will pitch a game in that series.
