A few things before proceeding to those sweet, sweet box scores:

*Birmingham Barons broadcaster Curt Bloom sat down with Courtney Hawkins for a 10-minute interview. They cut it into two parts. The first part deals with the start to his season, including spring training:

Part 2 goes into the homer off the train, his personality, and his assessment of baseball's ability to attract young African-Americans.

Hawkins is still a ways off, but he's progressing nicely through his first two months at Double-A.

  • April: .225/.267/.479; 5.3% walk rate; 36.8% strikeout rate.
  • May: .290/.380/.419; 8.5% walk rate; 28.3% strikeout rate.

*Jordan Guerrero extended his scoreless streak to 20 innings after going five against Hickory on Friday. He improved to 6-0 with a 1.24 ERA, and 56 strikeouts to just 10 walks over 51 innings. He's already been named the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week twice, including May 11-17.

*Dorn brought this up in the last thread before I sank it:

Sunday's box scores will appear below shortly.
