The IronPigs took down the Charlotte Knights tonight by a final score of 6-1 to earn a series split. The Pigs look to turn away from that nasty 5 game skid and have a good head start by winning tonight and last night.
Rich Thompson had a great night going 3 for 4 with an RBI, 2 runs scored and 2 stolen bases.
Ryan Edell won his first AAA game this season bringing his record to 1 and 2. He allowed 1 run on 5 hits, walking 1 and striking out 3.
Some rumors flying around tonight with the late scratch to Pete Orr from the lineup. The rumor is that the Phillies and Dodgers are talking about a trade involving Matt Kemp to include Domonic Brown and possibly Pete Orr. It’s no secret that the Dodgers are looking to save money after declaring bankruptcy and dropping Kemp’s $6.95 million salary for this season would be a good start. Just a rumor, but something to think about.
Kemp is hitting .327 with 21 HR and 60 RBI so far for the Dodgers this season. A standout outfielder who bats right? Interesting.. very interesting.
