Blake Whealy made the most of his one hit last week, cranking his fourth homer of the year, a two-run job, Friday at Fort Myers. Whealy went 1-for-12 (.083) in four games, striking out five times. He's now hitting .233 in 34 games for Single-A St. Lucie.Justin Olson evened his record once again, this time at 3-3, when he beat Norwich Thursday. After starting the season with a no-decision, Olson has gone loss-win-loss-win-loss-win over his next six starts. He allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings in Double-A New Britain's 7-2 win over the Navigators, with three walks and three strikeouts. Olson's ERA dropped to 4.34.

Single-A Stockton designated hitter Vasili Spanos destroyed California League pitching last week, going 6-for-15 (.400) in four games. He sat out three days before returning with a homer and double Sunday against Modesto. Spanos is hitting .299 with three homers and 20 RBIs.Ruairi O'Connor grounded into a double-play in his only at-bat last week, as a pinch hitter in the 10th inning of Florida State's 11-inning win over North Carolina on Sunday. The Seminoles finish the regular season with a series at North Carolina State this weekend.

Western Michigan right-hander Derek Schlecker was lights out, and then got lit up, in two outings last week. He earned his fifth save with 2 2/3 scoreless innings against Michigan State May 11, but then yielded four runs on two homers over 1 1/3 innings Saturday at Kent State. Schlecker is 5-3 with a 2.58 ERA.
