-First homer of the season comes after his hopes for a call-up are dashed by a healthy Youk.
Josh Reddick: 1-4, HR, K
Lars Anderson: 1-3, BB
Tony Thomas: 1-4, 2B
Juan Carlos Linares: 0-3, K
Luis Exposito: 0-3, K

I need to avoid slang...

Portland L 7-9

Box Score

Che-Hsuan Lin: 2-3, 2 BB, CS
Alex Hassan: 0-5, K
Tim Federowicz: 1-4, 2B, BB, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-4, HR, BB, K
-Still hasn't shown consistency, but his numbers are slowly climbing.
Will Middlebrooks: 2-4, BB, K
Oscar Tejeda: 2-4, 2B, BB, K

Stolmy Pimentel: 4.1 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 2 K
-Not only is Pimentel giving up a lot of runs, but he's not amassing the peripherals he had to mitigate them last year. Of course, he's 21 in Portland, but it's still somewhat concerning.
Eammon Portice: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Salem W 6-4

Box Score

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-5, K, SB
Pete Hissey: 2-5, 2B, K
Kolbrin Vitek: 2-4, 2B, 3B, BB, K
-What a difference a six-game hitting streak of epic proportions can make. After starting the year with his numbers in the gutter, Vitek now sits on a cool .354/.446/.563 batting line.
Reynaldo Rodriguez: 2-5, 2B, K
Michael Almanzar: 0-3, BB
Derrik Gibson: 0-4, K

Chris Balcom-Miller: 5 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, E
Cesar Cabral: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
-If you give Cabral two innings, he will give you four strikeouts. Period.

Greenville L 5-6

Box Score

Bryce Brentz: 1-5, HR, K, SB, E
-Surprisingly, Brentz' six-game hitting streak has actually seen him slow down, with a .250 average and one walk in his last four games. The homer, however, helps the slugging plenty.
Miles Head: 1-3, 2 BB, K, CS
Brandon Jacobs: 2-5, 2 K, SB
Lucas LeBlanc: 2-5, 2B, K, SB
Sean Coyle: 1-4, K
-A non-homer hit for Coyle! Amazing!
David Renfroe: 1-3, 2B, BB, 2 K

Manny Rivera: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
-After struggling a bit through last season, Rivera is off to a very fast start in 2011, with a 2.25 ERA and a 21:4 K:BB ratio. Of course, his peripherals were just as good last year, so you might expect a quick promotion now that the results have started to come in line.
