Angels Farm Daily 6/11: Newcomb And Then Some

New, comments

Sean Newcomb turned in an excellent start against the best team in the Cal League, the Visalia Rawhide. Chris Ellis was brilliant in his AA debut. What else could we ask for?

Triple-A: Salt Lake Bees

Roger Kieschnick (DH) hit his eighth big fly of the season, and Alex Yarbrough (2B) went 2-for-5 with two doubles, but the Bees fell just short of the Fresno Grizzlies (HOU). Let's hope the big club doesn't follow suit the next time they face the Astros.

Double-A: Arkansas Travelers

Recently promoted Chris Ellis got a hard-luck lesson in the ways of the Angels organization last night. He threw six brilliant innings in his AA debut but had nothing to show for it. The only blip on his line score was the 3 in the BB column; the rest of his line was quite nice: three hits and four punchies.

It was a grind for the Travelers' offense last night. They scattered six hits but couldn't cross the plate once over 11 innings. Sherman Johnson (2B) did all he could, going 1-for-3 with two BBs, but after Anthony Garcia (LF) hit a solo shot to put the Springfield Cardinals (STL) on the board in the top of the eleventh, the Travs' fate was pretty much sealed.

Class A Advanced: Inland Empire 66ers

With a big four-run fifth inning, the bulk of which came from a three-run double off the bat of Eric Aguilera (1B), the 66ers pulled out a win last night against the Visalia Rawhide (ARI), the best team in the league. The best part of the night, though? Sean Newcomb threw six excellent innings, only giving up one run on four hits and one walk. He also K'd seven. His only real hiccup was a solo shot by Rawhide's Stryker Trahan (C). Stryker?

Class A: Burlington Bees

The Bees' contest against the South Bend Cubs (CHC) was postponed due to rain. Boo.

Rookie: DSL Angels

The DSL Angels have now lost three in a row, after winning five in a row. Come on, boys. The DSL Mariners2 made three errors, and you guys had 11 hits. What up with that?!
