James McDonald shines in return


James McDonald pitched four shutout innings for Albuquerque tonight in his first appearance in a month. McDonald allowed two singles, a double and a walk while striking out three, needing only 51 pitches for the four innings.

Xavier Paul was not in the Albuquerque starting lineup tonight, for those trying to read tea leaves about what will happen Friday with Manny Ramirez and the disabled list.
