Tom Murphy - Team USA (Pan American gets top billing this week)
Really rough start to the games by Murphy and Team USA.
Against Puerto Rico Murphy was 0-4 and the Americans blew a frouth inning 7-2 lead. In the end Puerto Rico won in the tenth inning.
Game two pitted the US against Cuba and after a few at bats Murphy finally got off the schneid and the Americans downed Cuba by a score of five to two.
Steve Geltz - Tampa Bay
After a long productive streak in June Geltz got shelled to start July. He absorbed a loss towards the end of June and another in early July. Since then he has settled down and pitched three scoreless innings through four games.
His numbers on the year are not mind blowing but he has been a very dependable reliever for Tampa this season.

Jason Kanzler - Fort Myers (A+)
I thought I read that Kanzler was getting rid of the stache' this year?
I guess he grew it back but the facial hair has done nothing for his plate performance. Kanzler is batting .171 over his past ten games. He is still at .225 for the season but the Miracle, who are defending champs, need Kanzler and some other to step up if they want to make the post season this year.
Mike Burke - Delmarva (A)
Not a lot of action for our favorite Oriole this week. Burke pitched two innings, giving up one run.

The Bluefield Blue Jays entered Tuesday two games under .500 but left a game closer after a 5-1 victory over the Royals. Nick Sinay gave the Blue Jays a 2-0 with a 2-run shot and Bluefield never looked back.
