6/20 Ramirez update & Smokies win

Aramis Ramirez went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout on Saturday night in a rehab start with Class A Peoria. Ramirez batted second for the Chiefs in their game against Quad Cities. He grounded out to the shortstop in the first, was called out on strikes in the third and was intentionally walked in the fourth with two outs and runners at second and third. He grounded out in the sixth in his last at-bat. The Chiefs lost 7-2 to Quad Cities in front of 4,776 at O’Brien Field. He’ll start again Sunday.

* Double-A Tennessee clinched the Southern League North Division first-half title on Saturday. The Smokies won when West Tenn dropped the first game of a doubleheader. The Smokies have a 41-27 record under first-year manager Bill Dancy. Ty Wright had three hits and one RBIs, and now is batting .301 with 10 homers and 50 RBIs.
