Poreda Notches First Career Win

Aaron Poreda got his 1st career win today against the Dodgers. He pitched 1 inning of scoreless relief in the 13th inning. He had 2 Ks.

Scott Feldman got back on track with a quality start against the Diamondbacks. He went 6 innings and gave up 3 runs on 4 hits, 1 BB, and 1 K.

Ian Kinsler was 2-5 with 2 BBs, 1 double (his 16th), and 3 runs scored against the Diamondbacks. Also swiped his 16th bag of the season.

Ryan Braun was 1-4 with 1 HR (his 16th), 1 RBI, and 1 run scored.

Gabe Kapler was 1-1 with 1 BB, 1 double (his 11th), and 1 run scored against the Phillies. Also swiped his 3rd bag of the season.

Brad Ausmus was 0-4 against the White Sox, but he did throw out the speedy Scotty Pods at 2nd base.

Kevin Youkilis was 0-1 in a pinch-hit AB against the Nationals.

John Grabow pitched 1 inning of scoreless relief against the Indians. He walked 3 and struck out 2.

Scott Schoeneweis pitched 1/3 of an inning against the Rangers. He struck out the only batter he faced.

In other news, Israeli forward Omri Casspi was the 23rd overall pick today in the NBA draft. He was taken by the Sacramento Kings. Casspi is 21 years old, 6-9, and 220 lbs. In 1996, Doron Sheffer was selected in the second round, but Casspi is poised to become the first Israeli to actually play in the NBA. It's also worth noting that the Kings are in the Western Conference, so we'll likely see Casspi play Jordan Farmar (26th overall pick in 2006) at some point next season.

Congrats to Poreda and Casspi. Did Whitesell get sent down? Haven't been watching the wires while in Florida.

Yeah, he got sent down a few days ago. Tony Clark is back. I only just found out yesterday.
