We are in Hollywood to play the Stars a 3 game series. They just swept the mighty Royals in Kansas City in 4 games over the weekend. We are 5-2 against them on the season and we won 3 of 4 the last time we played at Gilmore Field, April 24-27. But that was back when the Stars were struggling. They started the season 5-17 (.227) and in last place. Since then, they are 58-25 (.699). They are 12th in the PCL in scoring with 3.94 runs per game (Portland is #1 with 4.81). The Stars are 4th in fewest runs allowed with 3.87 per game (Portland is #2 with 3.44). Their run differential is +8 and ours is +144.

Portland Beavers (59-46 .562 4 GB in 2nd place in the PCL West) at
Hollywood Stars (63-42 .600 in 1st place in the PCL West)

POR: Bruce Ancona (23-L 1-2 4.88) Rookie vs. HOL: Gerry Sullivan (26-R 12-5 2.75)

Not so happy about starting the series with our #5 starter and then our #4 is going tomorrow... Ancona won his last start, the first win of his Major League career, with 3 runs allowed in 6 IP.

Sullivan is 5-0 in his last 6 starts. He is 0-1 in 2 starts against us. We pummeled him once and he gave us 1 run in 5 IP in the no decision.

We put RP Jeremy Head (27-R) on the Disabled List and recalled RP Roy Huls (22-R) from his rehab assignment at Vancouver (A). Yesterday, Huls pitched 2 innings for the Mounties and struck out 5, so hopefully he is in shape now.

We are back home to play the San Francisco Seals a 3 game series over the weekend. They just lost 2 of 3 in Los Angeles. We are 4-2 against them on the season and split a pair of games the last time they were here, June 24-25. By the way, we have a winning record against everyone in the West, but are not in 1st place... The Seals are 3rd in the PCL in scoring with 4.65 runs per game (Portland is still #1 with 4.81). The Seals are 2nd to Denver in HR (110 to 118). We have 73 (9th). They are 12th in fewest runs allowed with 4.39 per game (Portland is #2 with 3.45). They are last with 3 CG. We are tied for 2nd with 17. Their run differential is +28 and ours is +147.

SF: John Miner (31-R 7-5 3.99) vs. POR: Steve Muir (28-R 14-4 2.87) Gold Glove(01)

Miner won his last start after a streak of 7 straight no decisions. He allowed 3 runs and 10 hits with no walks and 3 SO in 7 IP. He is 1-1 in 2 starts against us this season. Both were Quality Starts and the loss was a better performance than the win.

Muir is 3-0 in his last 4 starts. He only went 2 innings last time out and hurt himself hitting a double.

New Pitcher: Tom Cruzan (26-R), a rookie with a 4.02 ERA in 62.2 IP. Glenn Snowden takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Fernando Mexicano doubles to right center. He extends his hitting streak to 13 games. With the infield in, A.J. Lee grounds out to 2nd and the runners hold... Kim Springer plunks one down in front of the plate and Snowden heads home. It was not a Squeeze Play, but it might as well have been. C Bruce Jump pounces on the ball and then cannot pick it up and everyone is safe! E-2. 5 to 4, Beavers!

Top of the Seventh:

P Roy Huls (22-R) makes his first appearance for the Beavers in almost two months and pitches a scoreless inning, only giving up a 2 out single to Clay Laurence, for which there is no shame, since he is hitting .345. But then Huls goes to see Trudy the Trainer when he comes back to the dugout...

We are going to have to trade a lot of players this winter, or at least try to:
C Tim Higbee, because his defense is horrible (but finding an acceptable replacement may prove impossible)
1B Oscar Trejo, because he has lost some speed during the season and can no longer outrun my pet 3-legged box turtle and also because he is going to get too much money in arbitration for a back up player.
3B Fernando Mexicano, because he is injury prone and greedy.
LF Kim Springer, because he is injury prone and not a good fielder.
CF Brian Mitchell, because he is injury prone
SP Steve Muir, because he is going to make too much money for someone who strikes out so few batters.
RP Roy Huls, because he is injury prone.
I would add SP Rondey Moe to the list, but I don't think anyone else will want him. Since his injury, SD Oscar Cervantes is projecting a severe loss in his skills.

That's a lot of great talent that will not bring back the same level of performance in trades....

Top of the Eighth:
New Pitcher: Vic Kyzer (24-L). Bobbie Duvall grounds a hit to left and goes to 2nd on a wild pitch. But the next three make outs!

Bottom of the Eighth:

SS Juan Rojas (24-S) jerks one down the right field line and over the fence for a home run!!! 14 to 6, Beavers! Tim Higbee lines a hit to right. Glenn Snowden, still looking for a hit to extend his hitting streak makes it 18 games in a row with a double to left center, his 30th double of the year and our 20th hit of the game! P Al Harrell balks in a run! 15 to 6, Beavers! That does it for P Harrell. New Pitcher: Larry McClellan (27-R), yet another rookie, but he has a 1.01 ERA in 26.2 IP. Fernando Mexicano doubles over the center fielder's head and Snowden scores! 16 to 6, Beavers! A.J. Lee grounds a 3-2 pitch to left for a hit. Kim Springer loops a hit to right and Mexicano scores! 17 to 6, Beavers! PH Jose Julio (29-R) grounds a hit to left and Lee scores! 18 to 6, Beavers! That is a new all-time Beaver scoring record! Dave Risinger grounds a 3-2 pitch to left for a hit to load the bases up with no outs. That is 10 batters to reach base in a row! Jerry Suazo grounds into a 3-6-3 double play and Springer scores. 19 to 6, Beavers. Juan Rojas grounds a hit to right and Julio scores!!!! 20 to 6, Beavers! Oh! Happy Day!

I forgot to file the paperwork on this....
P Rex Williams (26-R) was sent to Vancouver (A) and RP Sandy Bastianelli (28-R) was recalled. Bastianelli has been lights out for the Mounties: 17.2 IP, 6 H, 0 HR, 8 BB and 19 SO, so we will give him another chance in Portland.

We are in Oakland to play a 2 game set. The Oaks lost 2 of 3 here to Sacramento over the weekend. We are 6-3 against them on the season, but lost 2 games the last time we were here, July 2-3. They are tied for 10th in scoring in the PCL with 3.98 runs per game (Portland is still #1 with 4.92). The Oaks are tied for 9th in fewest runs allowed with 4.35 per game (Portland is now tied for #2 with 3.55). The Oaks and Astros both have the same exact runs scored and runs allowed. Their run differential is -41 and ours is +152.

Portland Beavers (63-48 .568 2 GB in 2nd place in the PCL West) at
