Andrew Aplin returns home for a four-game engagement starting on Saturday – if the Houston Astros don’t call him up first.

Sounds crazy, but the Vanden High graduate has been tearing it up in his two weeks with the Oklahoma City RedHawks of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League since being called up from the Double-A Corpus Cristi Hooks.

Aplin, a center fielder, saw his average “dip” to .347 in 13 games with Oklahoma City after going 1 for 3 with two RBIs in a 7-3 win over the Fresno Grizzlies, Thursday.

The RedHawks are in Sacramento to play the River Cats Saturday through Tuesday.

After going 1 for 14 in his previous four games, Nick Baligod (Fairfield) got a hit and drove in a run for the Dunedin Blue Jays, Toronto’s team in the Class A advanced Florida State League, in a 3-1 win over Clearwater, Thursday.

Baligod hit .184 over his last 10 games, dropping his average from .263 to .252.

Drew Carpenter (Vacaville) had one of the ugliest outings of his career on Thursday, giving up 10 hits and 11 runs (10 earned) in 2 2-3 innings in the Albuquerque Isotopes’ 17-7 loss to the Memphis Redbirds.

Carpenter had spent most of the season as a starter but was sent to the bullpen earlier in the week and had two scoreless outings before Thursday’s debacle.

Albuquerque is the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Triple-A team in the PCL.

Jonathan Jones (Vanden) with the Toronto Blue Jays’ New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Ryan Lipkin (Vanden, Solano) with the Oakland A’s Stockton Ports and Geno Escalante (Rodriguez) with the San Francisco Giants’ Salem-Keizer Volcanoes again didn’t see action.

Jones is on the Temporary Inactive List, Lipkin is on the 7-day Disable List, and Escalante is on the Active List. None have played in more than a month.

Jordan Brown (Vacaville) of the Triple-A Mexican League’s Piratas de Campeche slumped a bit last week, batting .190 to see his average drop to .309.

More than a third of the pitching staff for the Gary SouthShore Railcats of the independent American Association has ties to Solano County.

A.J. Quintero (Vacaville) made his debut on Aug. 7 and last week pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings over two outings, both losses to Sioux City.

Ethan Gibbons (Armijo, Solano) gave up one hit, one run and two walks in 1 2-3 innings on Tuesday, his only appearance of the week, and continues to lead the team with a 2.77 earned run average.

Dustin Crenshaw (Solano) suffered his third straight defeat by getting touched for nine hits and four runs (three earned) over six innings in a 5-3 loss to Sioux Falls, Tuesday.

Kagen Hopkins (Vacaville, Solano) had his longest outing of the season by going six innings in a 4-1 loss to Sioux City on Monday. He gave up six hits and two runs while striking out five and walking one in taking the loss, which dropped his record to 4-3.

Chris Elder (Armijo, Solano) of the independent Frontier League extended his hitting streak to seven games with a double in a 6-1 win over Shaumberg on Friday. He also drove in a run and is hitting .271 with two home runs and 25 RBIs.
