Minor Matters: Gimenez Hits Three Homers
Gimenez now has a team-leading eight homers and is hitting .267 with 18 RBI.
Every Kinston starter scored at least once. Head (.239) went 2-for-3 with his fifth homer, three runs and two RBI; Max Ramirez (.306) was 2-for-3 with a double, three RBIs and two runs; and Drennan (.234) drove in three runs and hit his fifth homer, a two-run shot in the fourth.
Starter Ryan Edell (3-1, 3.22 ERA) allowed two runs on six hits over six innings. Dan Cevette worked two scoreless innings and Scott Roehl gave up two runs in the ninth.
BEGINNING TO BLOOM: Catcher Mike Rose has hit .500 (10-for-20) in his last five games at Triple-A Buffalo, raising his season average to .274. He also has thrown out 11 of 17 (64.7%) of opponents trying to steal to lead all International League catchers.
The Bisons have excelled in the running game. They third in the league in stolen bases (42) and first in success rate (42 for 58, 76.4%). Outfielders Ben Francisco (8-for-8)) and Brad Snyder (7-for-7) and infielder Trent Durrington (5-for-5) have all yet to be caught stealing.
Defensively, the Bisons are first in fewest steals allowed (13) and second in throwing out 50% of opposing runners trying to steal.
