Key Statistics: SS Dean Anna 2-4, 2B; SS Gregorio Petit 1-1, 2 BBs; RHP Matt Andriese (L, 1-2) 3.2 IP 8 H 5 R 5 ER 2 BBs K.
Prospect Watch: Dean Anna hit his 29th double of the year, his 41st extra-base hit of the season. Anna is now hitting .334/.416/.513 and has only made seven errors in 91 games at four positions. I think its time to give him a shot...Andriese had his first rough outing in the PCL but then again pitching in Las Vegas makes Tucson look like PETCO.
