Former Wildcats were dominating all over the world of baseball Wednesday

A lot of familiar faces were key parts of games on Wednesday night. Here's some of the highlights:

Preston Guilmet ('09): Major League Debut with Cleveland Indians

In his first career appearance in the big leagues, Preston Guilmet came in with runners on second and third in the top of the seventh against the Toronto Blue Jays. He got out of the jam with this strikeout of Munenori Kawasaki. He also recorded the first out in the eighth inning, forcing Jose Reyes to ground out to Nick Swisher.

Cory Burns ('09)

The Texas Rangers righty worked 1.2 scoreless innings, including drawing this groundball from Nate McLouth to get out of a bases loaded jam.

This was his sixth appearance for the Rangers this year, and his second stint in the bigs. Since returning to The Show on July 7th, he has not given up a run in 3 2/3 innings pitched.

Seth Mejias-Brean ('12): Cincinnati Reds Class-A Dayton Dragons

Wednesday was a big night for Mejias-Brean. He tied the Dragons' franchise record of five hits in one game. He went 5-for-5 with 3 RBI and two doubles.

"It's a great feeling," he said. "That first at-bat, I kind of snaked one out, kind of a swinging bunt, and I just beat it out. After that, it really snowballed for me tonight. Had the two doubles and I smoked 'em, and then just a couple of seeing-eye singles through the six-hole. Everything fell into place tonight."

Mathew Troupe: Orleans Firebirds

Troupe worked three scoreless innings for the Cape Cod League Firebirds today in a 12 inning loss. In typical Troupe form, he gave up three hits and walked one in his three innings on the mound.

Riley Moore

In that same game, Moore went 2-for-5 with a walk.
