Guthrie cruising

Starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie just worked out of a two-on, no-out jam in the fourth inning and is pitching a shutout in spite of a stretch in the third and fourth during which he gave up four hits in a span of six batters. He has thrown 67 pitches so far, so he should be able to get into the seventh inning if he doesn't get into serious trouble.

Quick minor league update: For those who have been harping the past couple of weeks about the decision to keep Felix Pie and send out Lou Montanez and Nolan Reimold, this note's for you. Through the first two games of the Triple-A season, Reimold is batting .444 with a pair of home runs and Montanez is batting .625. Pie entered tonight's game with a respectable .286 average, but is hitless in two at-bats.
