In just two short days, Vancouver gets its season underway and more prospects will have a chance to shine. Today we had a few prospects bust out with some great performances. I'm interested to see what the A's do with Gio Gonzalez especially after his last three starts. Here are the results:
| Salt Lake
Patterson CF-2B: 0-5, 3K
Ellis 2B: 0-4
Buck DH: 2-3, R, 2B, BB, K
Cunningham RF: 2-4, R
Munson C: 2-3, 3 R, HR (6), 2 RBI, BB
Pennington SS: 1-2, R, 3B, 4 RBI
Gonzalez SP: W (4-1), 5.1 IP, 0 ER, BB, 10 K, 2.51 ERA
| San Antonio
Cardenas 3B: 0-4, R, BB, K
Carter DH: 2-4, R, 2B, HR (10), RBI, BB, 2 K, .303 BA
Spencer LF: 1-4, 2B, RBI, BB, 3 K
Padron 1B: 3-4, RBI
Banwart SP: L (5-3), 4.2 IP, 6 ER, K
Leon RP: IP, 0 ER, BB, 4.15 ERA (First time pitching in over a month. Remember, he is only 20 years old. There is a lot of potential here).
| San Jose
Weeks had the day off.
Carter 1B: 1-4, R, 3B, K
Vitters 3B: 1-3, RBI, K
Smith C: 2-4, R, 2B, HR (2), 2 RBI
Thomas CF: 2-3
Italiano SP: W (5-6), 6 IP, ER, BB, 5 K, 6.55 ERA
| Kane County
Christian 3B: 1-2, BB, S
Coleman SS: 1-4, R,
Paramore C: 2-2, 2B, RBI, 2 BB (Petey doesn't have any power to speak of really, but has an excellent K:BB rate and a nice OBP).
Smalley SP: L (6-3), 4 IP, 3 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 2.26 ERA
Hunter RP: 2 IP, ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 7.41 ERA
Who are you looking forward to seeing the most when Vancouver starts on Saturday? Is Dixon the obvious answer or do you have someone else in mind?
