Happ left after 5, having allowed 3 runs on 5 hits. He walked 3 and struck out 7.

Sunday Snippet

Just a brief note that Lakewood closer Jordan Ellis, 24 was promoted to High A Clearwater.  Ellis although old for the league has pitched very well, going 3-3 with a 2.47 ERA in 33 games to go along with 11 saves.  In his 43.2 innings of work, Ellis has allowed 31 hits, walked 17 and struck out 55.  Opponents were hitting just .200 against him, and his WHIP in Lakewood stood at 1.09. Going to Clearwater along with Ellis is Catcher Torre Langley, 22.

New faces on the Lakewood roster are Catcher David Doss along with LHP Kyle Carr who was the Twins 12th Round pick in the ’08 draft.
