EDIT: Should have noted (although it's not a huge surprise) that Justin Smoak was recalled to the Big Club from his rehab assignment, and Alex Liddi (Talk40 #29) returned to Tacoma as a result. Smoak went right into the lineup and delivered a key homer in addition to much-needed roster flexibility for Mike Morse and Kendrys Morales.
Low-A -- Midwest League All-Star Game: East 6, West 5 -- Box
As we noted yesterday, the most glamorous names were on the West team with the Mariners guys, but that wasn't enough for the win.
High-A -- Carolina League All-Stars 12, California League All-Stars 2 -- Box
The guys from the east didn't mind playing in California at all (the game was in San Jose, which isn't one of the "pinball" sites, but the Carolina guys put up the pinball numbers).
Fortunately, no Mariners prospects pitched.
AAA -- Colorado Springs 4, Tacoma 1 -- Box
Erasmo Ramirez didn't lay waste to the Sky Sox, but he went six full innings on 88 pitches and held his own at altitude: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K.
Josh Kinney, who's been on rehab assignment, has been unscored-upon during that time. He went another 1.2 IP to keep his ERA at 0.00.
Short Season-A -- Tri-City 8, Everett 4 -- Box
Well, we knew the AquaSox wouldn't go undefeated. They're now 4-1.
D.J. Peterson is still waiting to make his debut.
In his absence, the offense was carried by Carlton Tanabe, a catcher who, like many backstops in the organization, is already well traveled. Tanabe homered and also had a single and a walk.
