High-A (OF) Kyle Parker had 3 more hits, giving him 8 in 2 games. His average is now at .305.
Broyles has a 3/1 K/BB rate and hasn't surrendered a home run in 25 innings. Batters are hitting .182 against him.
High-A pitcher Tyler Matzek (no. 1 in 2010) might be hurt. He allowed 7 runs in 1 2/3 innings Sunday and has given up 20 earned runs in his last 3 starts, totaling just 10 innings. That's an ERA of 18.00. That's such a deviation from the norm that injury seems to be the logical reason.
Reliever Will Harris was a 9th-round pick in 2006 out of LSU and looked strong during his first 3 seasons in the minors, posting a combined 1.92 ERA.
At Double-A Tulsa this season he struck out 46 in 34 1/3 innings, and had an ERA of 2.62 before being promoted to Triple-A. He could reach the majors and the Rockies late this season.
