Josh Vitters was 4-for-4 and Brett Jackson hit a RBI double in Iowa’s 9-1 loss to Albuquerque on Saturday. Chris Rusin took the loss, giving up eight runs on nine hits over 3 1/3 innings. Jackson is batting .264, while Vitters is batting .277.

Rebel Ridling hit his eighth homer in Tennessee’s 2-1 win over Birmingham. Eric Jokisch did not get a decision, giving up one run on four hits over six innings.

Daytona’s Austin Kirk threw one scoreless inning and Nelson Perez hit a RBI double for the North All-Stars but it wasn’t enough as the South team won, 6-3, in the Florida State League All-Star Game.

4 for 4, oh my….could that mean Vitters is GETTING THE HANG OF AAA? Who would have thought??? Not tearing it up down there but surely getting the hang of it. Gosh, who needs a third baseman that may bat over .210 in the majors??? Hmmm….
Now which team is it?
