PHOENIX - Former UCLA starting pitcher Charles Brewer has been tabbed a top-10 prospect in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, as rated on mlb.com by draft and prospect analyst Jonathan Mayo.

Brewer has gone 5-1 with a 2.58 ERA, 48 strikeouts and 19 walks in 52.1 innings (11 starts) for the double-A Mobile BayBears this season. The three-year UCLA letterwinner (2007-09) was selected in the 12th round of the 2009 MLB Draft by Arizona and was named the organization's Minor League Organizational Pitcher of the Year in 2010.

Hailing from Paradise Valley, Ariz., Brewer helped Mobile punch its ticket to the league's championship series last Monday. He secured the victory in a decisive Game 5, allowing one run and three hits through six innings. Brewer pitches in Mobile's starting rotation with former UCLA teammate Trevor Bauer.

Brewer pitched in UCLA's starting rotation in 2008 and 2009 after making just six relief appearances as a freshman in 2007. As a sophomore in 2008, Brewer led the Bruins with nine wins, going 9-4 with a 5.10 ERA, 69 strikeouts and 31 walks in 97.0 innings. As a junior in 2009, he went 3-5 with a 4.52 ERA, 65 strikeouts and 22 walks in 71.2 innings.

In other UCLA-related minor league news, former Bruins' first baseman Cody Decker has helped the San Antonio Missions capture a 2-0 series lead over the Arkansas Travelers in the Texas League's best-of-five championship series.

Late last night, Decker and the Missions needed six hours and three minutes to defeat Arkansas, 5-4, in 20 innings. Decker went 2-for-8 at the plate with one double, one RBI and one run in San Antonio. After having missed nearly three months of the regular season overcoming an ankle injury, Decker has batted .280 in the postseason with two home runs.

The previous evening, San Antonio overcame a 4-1 deficit with four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning. After the Missions tied the contest, 4-4, Decker drew a full-count walk, pushing the potential game-winning run to second base. San Antonio's next two batters also walked, allowing the Mission to win Game 1 in walkoff fashion.

San Antonio and Arkansas resume their best-of-five series at Arkansas' Dickey-Stephens Park on Friday. Game time is 5:10 p.m. (PT).

Former UCLA right-hander Erik Goeddel has helped the Savannah Sand Gnats advance to the South Atlantic League's best-of-five championship series. Goeddel earned the victory versus Augusta in Game 1 of the league's opening playoff round. He has not pitched in the championship series, currently split 1-1.

Savannah and Greensboro continue their series Friday at 4:05 p.m. (PT) at Savannah's Grayson Stadium.
