Nolan has now played in two games with Buffalo since being called up from the New Hampshire Fisher Cats last week. In a 3-1 Buffalo win on Thursday Nolan went 1-for-3.
The shortstop who played at Nashua South has appeared in 82 games with the Fisher Cats this season, hitting .258 with five home runs, 35 RBIs and seven stolen bases.
Fuld, a Durham native and outfielder for the Minnesota Twins, is just 2-for-14 since the ASG on July 15.
Fuld's average is now .260 for the season, but climbed steadily in the month of July as he seemed to find his groove after coming back from a month out of action due to a concussion.
A career .239 hitter over his six MLB seasons, Fuld hit .299 in 65 games with the Cubs in 2009 for his career best.
Locke scattered seven hits and three runs over six innings of work to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-3 win over Colorado.
FORMER Keene Swamp Bat Ben Paulsen made MLB debut Monday night with the Colorado Rockies. He went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a 7-2 loss to Washington.
FRANKLIN'S Derrick Sylvester had a rough outing on Tuesday night, working two-thirds of a inning with the Arizona (Rookie) League Dodgers.
Sylvester went 9-2 with a 2.59 ERA in his senior season with the Penmen and was drafted by Los Angeles in the 31st round (939 overall) of this year's draft.
