dsu’s big day

Three former Delta State stars appeared in big league games on Sunday, not bad for a small-town Division II school. Catcher Eli Whiteside made his 2009 debut with the San Francisco Giants, going 1-for-3 with an RBI. Edwin Maysonet, recently recalled by the Houston Astros, played some third base in Sunday’s game, and pitcher Brent Leach worked a third of an inning for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
P.S. Former Mississippi Brave Diory Hernandez got his first big league hit on Sunday in Atlanta’s win over Toronto. He went 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs while filling in at shortstop for Yunel Escobar. Hernandez can play; we haven’t seen the last of his impact for the Braves.
