On the second to last Saturday night on the minor league season in the best system in baseball it went an even 3-3 W-L overall excluding the two lowest short-season clubs. Memphis didn't have enough to steam to pull off a comeback in a loss against Iowa. Jonathan Cornelius delivered a terrific start leading way for Springfield over Tulsa to open the three-game set. Palm Beach won a tight one with Sam Gaviglio appearing in the DFR for the first time in awhile. Peoria was shutout on consecutive nights. State College blanked Auburn behind a awesome outing by Jimmy Reed. Steve Bean had three hits in a Johnson City loss.

If the Cardinals need a middle infielder not on the 40 man roster when roster expand, Greg Garcia has been one of the hottest hitters in the organization this month and has defensive versatility and a very good bat as he showed last year at Springfield.
