First, a list of roster moves from Matt Wallace. The big news is the injury to Giovany Soto- strained elbow. I don't like the sound of it, and I hope he stays in the trainer's room long enough to have it heal entirely.
Edit: forgot about Alli's great Mudhens pictures, located here. Give em a look.
Hooray! A win streak! Ryan Ketchner was only able to go 4.2 innings, and he gave up 4 runs on 10 hits with 5 strikeouts in that span of time. Josh Rainwater quashed the fire (heh, bad pun) by pitching 3.1 innings of shutout ball, walking 1 and allowing 2 hits with 3 strikeouts. Jay Sborz finished the game out with a hitless inning, striking out 1. Jeff Larish was 1-3 with 2 walks and a double.
Brooks Brown went 6 shutout innings, allowing 4 hits and 1 walk with 3 strikeouts. Cale Iorg was 3-5 with a double and a triple and Deik Scram was 4-4 with 2 doubles and a walk.

A: South Bend 7, West Michigan 5
