You normally wouldn’t expect to find a battle of former Utah preps deep in the heart of Dixie, but that’s exactly what happened on May 27. Birmingham outfielder Keenyn Walker (Judge Memorial H.S.) stepped up to the plate to face Chattanooga pitcher Tyson Brummett (Spanish Fork H.S.) in a matchup in the Double-A Southern League.

Walker proceeded to hit his second home run of the season off Brummett, while going 2-for-3 at the dish. Walker’s Birmingham Barons went on to win 2-0.

As an Angel Fan I've seen C.J. Cron play nearly every game. He's a keeper, displacing Raul Hernandez at DH. Plays some defense, too.

Part of the reason that the Angels have the 2nd best record in MLB and are breathing down the necks of the A's. Of course, having the best player in baseball, Mike Trout, doesn't hurt.
