Mike Prochaska threw four-plus shutout innings in the Class AA exhibition game with the Trenton Thunder today. Prochaska was with the Biscuits for much of 2004, but stayed at Class A Visalia almost all of last season.
Brett Wayne and Jeff Ridgway each threw two shutout innings and the Biscuits led 3-0 after 8 1/2. Alas, Trenton touched Joe Little for three runs and won it in the 10th.
On a neighboring field, Elijah Dukes hit a towering home run in the Class AAA game. It was a windy day, but Dukes' shot wasn't helped by it. Just after contact, someone in the stands said, "Look at it go." Kevin Witt followed with a more generic home run to right.
