Gonzales @ CT:
Mixing a 96 mph fastball with a sharp-breaking slider against a free-swinging lineup, Jackson needed only 101 pitches to throw his first complete game since his no-hitter at Tampa Bay on June 25, 2010, when he threw 149 pitches while pitching for the Diamondacks.
Pitching before several scouts that included representatives from the Cardinals, Brewers and Red Sox, Jackson earned 18 outs on grounders and needed only two strikeouts.

Zimmerman @ FG:
… The performance of this group of players did jump quite a bit in the 2nd half of the season with the biggest increase coming in the form of power (SLG increases by 0.115 and ISO increasing by 0.086). Using these numbers to predict how the rest of the season would go, Adam Dunn
would have a 2nd half triple slash line of 0.198/0.340/0.427. …
BTW, Adam Dunn is felling good. And Jake Peavy agrees: “That looked like you.” Hey you two, get a room!
