A few minor-league matters

A few notes from around the organization:

* Rough night for J.B. Cox as he allowed four runs on four hits in two innings and took the loss for Scranton.

* Mark Melancon (3-0, 2.10) has allowed 20 hits and fanned 32 over 34.1 innings. He has walked only six.

* Zach McAllister has a 2.47 ERA at Tampa. He took a brutal loss last night (8 5 2 2 0 9). The former third-round pick is having an eye-opening season.

* The legendary Pat Venditte picked up a save last night, getting four outs for Staten Island. He has yet to allow a run as a professional. His line over eight games: 8.2 2 0 0 6 9. Far too many walks, obviously. It’ll be interesting to see if his stuff translates at higher levels.
