*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Mario Feliciano, C – Carolina Mudcats – Milwaukee Brewers – – 1-3, HR (14), 2R, 3RBi – Feliciano continues his breakout season with another home run, his Carolina League leading fourteenth, his fifth in his last four games and most importantly, the game winner last night over Salem. His two-run blast in the seventh inning gave the Mudcats a 7-2 lead. Yet, Carolina reliever Rodrigo Benoit gave up four runs, two earned, on three hits in two thirds of an inning in the top of the ninth, but fellow reliever Clayton Andrews bailed him out to notch his eighth save on the season and 7-6 Mudcat win. 

California League: 

  • Luis Campusano, C – Lake Elsinore Storm – San Diego Padres – – 2-4, 2B, R, RBi – – Campusano’s nine hits over his last six games (9-23; .391) have placed him at the top of the Cal League in batting (.320).
