25 year-old Phil Dumatrait (Red Sox #1 – 2000) pitched 7 innings, giving up only 1 ER, 2 BB, and 3 H. Dumatrait, who came to the Reds as the player to be named later in the Scott Williamson trade, struck out 6. This year he has pitched 12 innings, given up only 5 H, and 4 BB, while striking out 11 with a 0.71 ERA. Last year in 15 games at Louisville, Dumatrait struck out 58 and walked 36 in 87.2 innings with a 4.72 ERA.
27 year-old Gary Majewski (White Sox #2 – 1998) tossed another scoreless inning he now has gone 3.2 innings with 1 BB, 4 H and 2 Ks.
23 year old Tyler Pelland (Red Sox #9 – 2002) pitched into some tough luck. After Evan Longoria reached on a throwing error by Paul Janish, Pelland got two quick outs. He walked Josh Arhart and then gave up a homer to Gabriel Martinez, thus 0 ER.
Pelland pitched 5.2 innings giving up 3 H, 3 BB, and recording 2 Ks. For the season he has 9.2 IP, 10 H, 3 BB, and 5 Ks.
25 year-old third baseman Enrique Cruz (Yankees #14 – 2003) went 2 for 3 with a 2B, R, and 2 RBI.
