[Editor's Note (Again): Okay, so, thanks to a dynamite suggestion from audioa11 the other day, I'm rethinking the format here. Again. Bear with me, I'm a slow learner. The spotlight game sold the other affiliates short and that wasn't sitting well with me, so I want to be a little more balanced. Going forward, I'm going to offer the box scores, links, and a standout stat line for both a batter (or two) and a pitcher (or two) from each Angels minor-league affiliate. As always, let me know what you think! And if you have any suggestions, please let me know.]

Triple-A: Salt Lake Bees
This, folks, is what you call an offensive onslaught. If only they could pass some of that the Angels' way.
Jo-Jo needed last night's start, as the year hasn't been too kind to him thus far. Hopefully he can build on this outing going forward.
Class A: Burlington Bees
Three errors and five hits is no way to go through life, guys.
It's probably about time to promote Mr. Rhoades, my favorite ISU Redbird. Hey, that's saying a lot. I went to Illinois.
Rookie: Orem Owlz
What a butt-whoopin'. What a rout. What a beatdown. What a...Okay, I'm done. But seriously, LOOK AT THAT! 21 runs on 21 hits?! That's a run-to-hit ratio that makes a GM's career! Well, a GM's night, at least.
Yup, the whole team. What can I say?
Starter Eduar Lopez did fairly well, throwing 4.0 innings of two-run ball, but compared to the guys who relieved him? He might as well have thrown BP.
Rookie: AZL Angels
Dalton Blumenfeld (DH) made his first start as a member of the Angels organization and went 1-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored. I didn't even know the guy had signed after being selected in the 12th round of this year's draft.
Making his second stateside start, Crusito Mieses did quite well. You might even say he cruised.
Rookie: DSL Angels
FIVE errors? Come on, guys. Well, they're young. They'll learn. Hopefully.
The only guy in the lineup to record a hit without striking out. Not a great day for our Angels in the Dominican Republic.
