Revolving Barn Door: Jason Guarente is reporting that the Lancaster Barnstormers have released P Todd Pennington and P Derek Griffith. In addition, P Clayton Andrews has officially joined the team, P Scott Sobkowiak has been moved to the bullpen and P Manny Vazquez-Santiago has been activated.
Pennington was 0-1 with an 8.18 ERA in eight games, while Griffith went 0-2 with a 15.00 ERA in two starts.
Check out Jason’s blog for all the details.
Jiannetti’s Streak Ends: In a game in which P Jon Cannon played the outfield and a player who wasn’t at the stadium at the beginning of the game was on the field at the end, perhaps Joe Jiannetti’s hitting streak ending at 28 games could get lost in the shuffle. Well, after going 0-for-4 in Newark yesterday, it’s all over.
So, who has the longest streak right now?
Vito Chiaravolloti of the Road Warriors currently has a 10 game streak in which he’s compiled just 11 hits.
Ramon Castro of the Bears has the longest home hitting streak, hitting in his last 12 games at The Den and going an UNGODLY 24-for-47 (.511) in that span.
In fact, here is a list of all the home games in which Castro hasn’t gotten a hit…
The man has a hit in every home game he’s played, and only has three games all season in which he doesn’t have a hit.
(Of course, Castro went 0-for-2 today in Newark)
Chiaravolloti also has the longest road streak (not like he has a shot at the home mark) with the Ducks Jorge Piedra coming in second with a nine game streak.
Baerlocher Whiffs 13: Ryan Baerlocher struck out 13 batters in 7.1 innings of work for the York Revolution last night, en route to a 5-4 win over the Road Warriors. He now has 41 K’s on the season, easily leading the league.
Estee Harris homered in the losing effort.
Stevens Spins Complete Game Shutout: Josh Stevens threw the first complete game shutout in Lancaster Barnstormers history last night, allowing nine hits and walking none in a 12-0 stomping of Camden. Every Barnstormer reached base in the win.
Randy McGarvey got a hit in the loss for the Riversharks.
A Gamble That Didn’t Pay Off?: OF Sean Gamble, who released by the Somerset Patriots after Spring Training, is currently sixth in the Can-Am League in hitting, batting .471 in his first four games with the Grays.
Tyrone Pendergrass, who was cut by the Patriots in 2005 camp, is hitting .263 for the same club. – Mike Ashmore
