Minor league baseball: Quentin contributes for Intimidators

Staff report
Former All-Star Carlos Quentin made his two at-bats with the Kannapolis Intimidators count in a 3-2 win at Savannah’s Grayson Stadium on Monday night.
Limited to a DH role by wet weather, Quentin, who is on a rehab assignment from the Chicago White Sox because of an injured foot, doubled down the left-field line on the first pitch he saw. The hit scored Justin Greene and gave the Intimidators a quick 1-0 lead.
Quentin lined out to left field in his second at-bat and was replaced by Kenny Williams. Quentin is expected back in the lineup tonight.
Kannapolis rallied for two additional runs in support of Charlie Leesman (8-4) in the fifth. Eduardo Escobar and Drew Garcia produced RBIs.
Leesman limited the Sand Gnats to two runs, one earned, in five innings of work.
The southpaw got help from the bullpen. Charlis Burdie, Tyson Corley and Dan Remenowsky kept Savannah off the board. Remenowsky earned his 12th save.
Kannapolis and Savannah continue their series tonight, with former Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon scheduled to make a start for the Intimidators.
Colon, 36, is rehabbing an injured knee and trying to regain velocity before rejoining the White Sox. He is 3-6 this season with a 4.23 ERA, but he is 153-103 in his MLB career. Colon won the 2005 Cy Young Award when he was 21-8 for the Angels.
Former Catawba hurler Tim Smith pitches for Savannah.
