    Today, A.J. Achter was being stretched out by the Snappers he started today tallying 5.0 IP - 2 Hits - O ERs - 5 K's/ 1 BB in the Snappers 9-2 win over Cedar Rapids.
    05/24/12

    Sano went 0-3, 2 BB's , and 1 SB (3) - Miguel is mired in a week + long slump and today certainly didn't change matters, but the 2 BB's / 2 K's is a step in the right direction. Rosario is clearly outplaying Sano now. :I


    Rosario went 2-5 , HR (4) and 2 K's
