Here are a couple mobile notes from the minors while we wait for our servers to get back on line.
Righthander Joe Savery and two relievers combined to shutout Altoona 6-0 yesterday. Brad Harman, as if sensing his career had hit a crossroad, continued his hot hitting, adding an RBI single. The Australian second baseman is hitting .295. Outfielder Michael Taylor homered (8), raising his totals to .319/.372/.600. ... In Buffalo, the IronPigs fell to the Bisons 8-7. Steven Register took the loss in relief of Rodrigo Lopez, who couldn't make it out of the fourth. By way of an update, Lou Marson is hitting .207/.324/.310 in 68 PAs. ... One transaction to report. The Phils released control-challenged reliever Scott Nestor, who had been with Reading. Nestor had been on the 40-man roster, so his release clears space.
