Lugo, Schimpf, Bregman, Gausman shine in MLB

On Monday night, former LSU star Jacoby Jones was in Indianapolis, posting a three-hit game for Triple-A Toledo. It was a very good night that became a great night when Jones was told after the game that he was being called up by the Detroit Tigers.

JaCoby JonesAfter arriving in Detroit, Jones was immediately inserted into the lineup. He took total advantage of the situation, helping the Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4. Jones got his first Major League hit in the sixth inning, ripping a double into the right field corner, driving home Justin Upton with the go-ahead run. Jones added an RBI single to right in the seventh inning, becoming the first Tigers with multiple hits and RBI in his Major League debut since Hank Riebe had a pair of doubles and two RBI against the Philadelphia A’s on Aug. 26, 1942. Jones went 2-for-4, scoring a run as well. He later described the feeling of getting his first big league hit.

“More relief, just getting it out of the way,” Jones told MLB.com. “Something I’ll never forget, my first big league hit. It’s something you work hard for, to get here, and to get it on the first night, it’s simply amazing. I don’t have any other words to describe it, just amazing.”

It was quite a week for former Centenary hurler Seth Lugo, who won his first Major League game at St. Louis on Aug. 25 and backed it up with his second win against Miami Tuesday night. Inserted in the starting rotation, Lugo pitched five shutout innings against the power-laden Cardinals, allowing just two hits, striking out five in a 10-6 victory. Tuesday night, Lugo pitched six innings, allowing just two runs on five hits, striking out four in a 7-4 victory. The wins were huge for the Mets, who are in the midst of the Wild Card race in the National League. Lugo is now 2-2 with a good 2.60 ERA.

It was another outstanding week for Ryan Schimpf for San Diego. The St. Paul’s and LSU product has a five-game hitting streak (8-for-17/.471) with a double, two triples, two home runs and four RBI to raise his average to .243 with 13 doubles, five triples, 16 home runs and 38 RBI in 62 games for the Padres.

Former LSU star Alex Bregman continues to progress with the Houston Astros. Bregman now has an eight-game hit streak (9-for-31/.290) and he has hit in 14 of his last 15 games (20-for-55/.364) to raise his average to .243with nine doubles, five home runs and 20 RBI in 33 games.

In the heat of a pennant race, the Baltimore Orioles are getting a big lift from former LSU flame-thrower Kevin Gausman, who has now won three consecutive starts after defeating the New York Yankees 5-0 on Sunday. Gausman pitched seven shutout innings, walking no one and striking out nine for the O’s. In his last two starts, Gausman has pitched 13 shutout innings, striking out 11 to improve to 6-10 with a 3.73 ERA.

Former LSU star Mikie Mahtook was optioned to Triple-A Durham by the Tampa Bay Rays on Aug. 28. Mahtook was batting .158 with a home run and seven RBI. Look for him to possibly get recalled on Thursday when rosters can expand.

At Triple-A Gwinnett (Atlanta Braves) of the International League, Reid Brignac had a four-hit game against Norfolk Monday night, including a double and driving in a run as the Braves defeated Norfolk 6-5. The St. Amant product is now batting .262 with 21 doubles, one triple, eight home runs 41 RBI.

Former Barbe star Gavin Cecchini is red hot for Las Vegas (Milwaukee Brewers) of the Pacific Coast League. Cecchini has four consecutive multi-hit games (13-for-19/.684), which included a 5-for-5 performance on Aug. 27 against Salt Lake City. Cecchini has hit in 13-of-14 games overall (18-for-37/.486) to raise his average to .330 with 21 doubles, five triples, five home runs, 47 RBI and 12 stolen bases. He is third in the league in hitting and fifth in hits. Milwaukee should strongly consider calling him up on Thursday with roster expansion.

Could a promotion be just around the corner for former Southern pitcher Jose De Leon? The Oklahoma City (Los Angeles Dodgers) right-hander in the Pacific Coast League continues to dominate, winning his fourth straight decision as the Dodgers defeated Colorado Springs 6-1 on Sunday. Since July 30, De Leon is 4-0 with a 1.33 ERA.

In that stretch, De Leon has pitched 40 and two-third innings, allowing just six runs on 23 hits, walking only four batters while striking out 46. In his last three games, he has 33 strikeouts in just 21 and two-third innings. In his last two games, De Leon has pitched 14 shutout innings, allowing just five hits. Overall, De Leon is 7-1 with a 2.61 ERA. In 16 starts, he has pitched 86 and a third innings, allowing just 61 hits with a whopping 111 strikeouts with an 0.94 WHIP.

Former Louisiana Tech pitcher Phil Maton earned a huge promotion, moving up two levels from Class A Lake Elsinore of the California League to Triple-A El Paso (San Diego Padres) of the Pacific Coast League. Maton has handled the jump very well. In a span of eight days, Maton made four appearances for the Chihuahuas, going 1-0 with a perfect earned run average. In five innings, Maton has allowed no hits while striking out 10 in dominant fashion.

At Double-A Montgomery (Tampa Bay Rays) of the Southern League, Justin Williams has a six-game hit streak (8-for-22/.364) to raise his average to .258 with five doubles, two triples, five home runs and 27 RBI in just 34 games. The Terrebonne High alum started the season with Class A Charlotte of the Florida State League, batting .330 with 11 doubles, four home runs and 31 RBI in 51 games.

Former Covington and Tulane pitcher Randy LeBlanc was promoted from Class A Fort Myers of the Florida State League to Double-A Chattanooga (Minnesota Twins) of the Southern League. In his first start for the Lookouts Monday night, LeBlanc was scintillating, pitching seven shutout innings, allowing five hits while striking out five in a 13-0 win over Mississippi. LeBlanc is with his third team, at three different levels, this season. He started with Cedar Rapids of the Midwest League before moving up to Fort Myers. Overall on the year, he is 13-9.

At Class A Hudson Valley (Tampa Bay Rays) of the New York-Penn League, former LSU star Jake Fraley is finally starting to show his hitting potential. Fraley, who has run wild with 32 stolen bases in just 51 games, now has a five-game hit streak (9-for-24/.375) and he has hit in 10 of his last 11 games (14-for-47/.298) to raise his average to .242 with nine doubles, seven triples, one home run and 17 RBI.

Taylor Guilbeau, a Zachary High product, has won consecutive decisions for Hagerstown (Washington Nationals) of the South Atlantic League. In those two starts, Guilbeau pitched 12 innings, allowing just one run on seven hits, striking out 17 to improve to 4-2 with a 3.72 ERA with one save in 27 appearances.

Former Ouachita Christian and LSU star Mark Laird remains hot for Lakewood (Philadelphia Phillies) of the South Atlantic League. Laird now has a 12-game hit streak (20-for-48/.417) to raise his average to .347 with three doubles, one home run and 11 RBI for the BlueClaws in 25 games.

In Rookie League action, former Loyola star Luis Anguizola has a seven-game hit streak (9-for-25/.360) for the Arizona League Padres (San Diego Padres). Anguizola has hit in 10 of 11 games (14-for-38/.368) to raise his average to .279 with five doubles, one home run and 18 RBI.

Phillip Diehl improved to 3-0 with a 2.83 ERA in 13 appearances with one save for Pulaski (New York Yankees) of the Appalachian League. In 28 and two-third innings, the former Louisiana Tech pitcher has allowed just 23 hits and has fanned 36 batters.

Former Belle Chasse star Nick Flair has posted multi-hit games in five of his last six games (12-for-26/.462) for Orem (Los Angeles Angels) of the Pioneer League. Flair is now batting .315 with 15 doubles, one triple, eight home runs and 39 RBI in 47 games for the Owlz.
