Monday, April 12, 2004

We are in Kansas City to play the Royals a 4 game series. They won 2 of 3 here over the weekend against the Angels with yesterday's game getting rained out. We were 6-2 against them last year and are 13-11 (.542) since 2001. After a week of play, they are 2nd in the PCL in scoring with 5.20 runs per game (Portland is tied for 7th with 3.67). They are 12th in fewest runs allowed with 3.80 per game (Portland is tied for #1 with 1.80). The whole of the PCL is only averaging 3.38 runs per game after the first week. I think this is because all of the great, but injury prone pitchers, are pitching in the first week. The number will go up. Their run differential is at +7 and ours is at +11, tied with Hollywood and Minnesota for the best in the PCL.

Portland Beavers (4-2 .667 tied for 1st place in the PCL West) at
Kansas City Royals (3-2 .600 1.5 GB in 4th place in the PCL East)

POR: Bill Woodward (23-R 9-8 4.09 last year) vs. KC: Graham Pethel (27-R 0-1 4.50) All-Star

This will be Woodward's season debut.

Pethel gave up 8 hits and a home run and 3 runs in 6 IP in his first start. He has finished 3rd and 2nd in the last 2 Cy Young Award votes. He was 0-2 against us last year, but in one loss, he only went 4.1 IP and only gave us an unearned run, but had to leave with an injury.

Jeff Galka grounds a hit to center and Springer scores without a throw! 7 to 5, Beavers! Tom Higbee lines a hit to left and the bases are loaded with 1 out. To pinch-hit or not pinch-hit for P Ramon Andrade? Well, if I think about and let him bat, he will give up runs next inning, so we pinch-hit with Oscar Trejo (31-R). He strikes out... 2 down. Reid Reddick strikes out looking on 3 pitches...

Bottom of the Ninth:
New Pitcher: Bruce Ancona (24-L). 2B Eric Kalles (25-L), a rookie who is 1 for 1 this season, swings at the first pitch and lines out to left.

We are finally home to open Metropolitan Stadium to the public for the first time this season! We welcome the Sacramento Solons for a 3 game series over the weekend. They just split 4 games at home versus Salt Lake City. We were 10-4 against them last season when they lost 101 games and finished in last place in the PCL West. We are 27-15 (.643) against them since 2001, they best record we have against any opponent. They are currently tied for 6th in the PCL in scoring with 4.40 runs per game (Portland is tied for #2 with 5.00). The Solons are tied for 10th in fewest runs allowed with 4.20 per game (Portland is down to #7 with 3.80). Their run differential is +2 and ours is +12, 2nd best to Milwaukee (+13) in the PCL. Miami in the NL is at +25 after only 10 games.

Sacramento Solons (4-6 .400 3 GB tied for 6th place in the PCL West) at

SAC: Mike McLane (26-R 1-1 2.45) vs. POR: Bobby Johnson (24-R 1-1 3.46)

McLane is their #1 starter when healthy and, unfortunately, he is healthy at the moment. He gave up 3 runs in 7 IP last time out and took a loss. Last year, he was 9-2 with a 2.14 ERA in 24 starts. In 2001 and 2002, he hardly pitched at all, managing only 3 Big League innings. Last year, we faced him 3 times and he only won 1 game, but we did not score a run off him in 20.1 IP and only had 11 H.

Johnson gave up 1 run in 7 IP last time out for his 1st win of the season.

Battle for First Place!

The hot San Diego Padres are here for a quick 2 game set. They just won 2 of 3 at home versus Seattle over the weekend. We were 10-4 against them last season when they were 78-84 and finished 6th in the PCL West. We are 23-19 (.548) since 2001. They are currently 8th in the PCL in scoring with 4.15 runs per game (Portland is 4th with 4.62). They are tied for 10th in fewest runs allowed with 4.00 per game (Portland is 9th with 3.77). Their run differential is +2 and ours is +11, the Best in the West, but there are 4 teams in the PCL East with better than ours.

Portland Beavers (9-4 .692 tied for 1st place in the PCL West)

Wolfe gave up 5 runs (2 earned) in 5 IP last time out to earn his 2nd straight no decision. The Padres have won both of his games. He was 11-15 with a 3.79 ERA in 34 starts last year. He was 1-3 in 4 starts against us last year with 2 decent games and 2 not so decent.

After pitching a shutout in his 1st start as a Beaver, Phillips followed that up with 2 runs in 7 IP at Kansas City, the highest scoring team in the PCL so far this year.

Bottom of the Fourth:

Tim Higbee draws a walk to force in a run! 3 to 1, Padres. Glenn Snowden gets beaned to force in a run! 3 to 2, Padres. That is already the 4th time he has been beaned this season.

He was in our minor league system last year, but we were not allowed to keep him when the B and C Leagues were freed from Major League control. Jerry Suazo is allowed to hit because I am an idiot, but he grounds a hit to center and Rojas scores and Mitchell goes to 3rd! 8 to 3, Beavers! Tim Higbee swings at the first pitch and grounds out to short.

Top of the Eighth:
New Pitcher: Victor Alvarez (30-L). Howie Anspaugh and Dave Bafaro lead off with back to back hits... What is wrong with P Alvarez?! He was lights out last year and cannot get anybody out this year...Bill Lunsford takes a 3-2 pitch to load the bases up with no outs... The Bullpen is up.

We had 12 hits and made 1 error

Frank Flores (W 3-1) went 7 innings, allowed 3 unearned runs, 6 hits, no walks and struck out 3. He threw a WP. At bat, he reached on an error and scored a run.
LHP Victor Alvarez went 1.1 innings, allowed 2 runs, 4 hits, 1 walk and struck out 2.
RHP Ramon Andrade (SV 5) got 2 outs, allowed 1 hit, 1 walk and struck out 1.

RHP Roy Tindale (L 1-2) went 1.2 innings, gave us 5 runs, 5 hits and 2 walks.

RF Brian Mitchell had 3 hits, stole a base, scored a run and had 2 RBI. CF Jerry Suazo had 2 hits, scored a run and had an RBI. C Tim Higbee had a hit and a walk and an RBI. 1B Glenn Snowden had 2 hits with a double and a walk, scored a run and had an RBI. 3B Jeff Galka had 2 hits and a walk (INT) and had an RBI. 2B Dave Risinger had a hit, scored a run and had an RBI. SS Juan Rojas drew a walk and scored 2 runs. PH Enrique Ramos missed a Grand Slam by 10 feet and settled for a SF.

For San Diego, RF Dave Bafaro had 3 hits with a double and scored 2 runs.

Even though we won both of these games, I think the Padres are going to be our biggest threat to repeating as Division Champs this year. They have the best defense I have seen in the PCL since I have been here. It is better than ours, and I emphasize getting players who can pick it. The Seals, with all of their awesome hitters, have lost 11 in a row and are not looking like much of a threat.

They are currently 11th in the PCL in scoring with 3.73 runs per game (Portland is #3 with 4.93). The PCL average is already up to 3.98. The Oaks are tied for 3rd in fewest runs allowed with 3.20 per game (Portland is tied for 8th with 3.93). Their run differential is +8 and ours is +15, now 3rd in the PCL, behind Milwaukee (+25) and Houston (+17).

Bottom of the Seventh:

PH Oscar Trejo (31-R) grounds a hit to left and Springer heads home....Safe! Tie Game: 1 to 1. Jack Hinckley bunts the runners up. Juan Rojas strikes out... Jeff Galka strikes out...

Top of the Ninth:
On the Hill: Rich Larkin (24-R), after a scoreless 8th. PH Sid Stayer (21-L), a rookie batting .308 in 13 AB with 0 SO. He strikes out! Johnny Scott, a tough fellow to strike out, strikes out! Mario Rodriguez strikes out looking on 3 pitches!!!

Won - 2 to 1

We had 11 hits (all singles) and made no errors
Oakland had 5 hits and made 2 errors

Bobby Johnson went 7 innings, allowed 1 run, 5 hits, no walks, 1 HBP and struck out 6. At bat, he had a hit.
RHP Rich Larkin (W 2-0) went 2 scoreless innings, allowed 1 walk and struck out 4. 23 SO now in 13 IP with 4 H. He looks like our best reliever so far this year.

Greg Ware (L 1-2) went 8.2 innings (CG), gave us 2 runs, 11 hits, 2 walks and struck out 6. He threw a WP that ended the game. 123 pitches. At bat, he had a hit and scored their only run.

CF Jack Hinckley had 2 hits and a walk and scored the winning run. C Tim Higbee had a hit and a walk. LF Kim Springer had 3 hits and scored a run. PH Oscar Trejo had a hit and an RBI.

The Oaks announced that Tim Metts had a badly bruised hand and that is should be about a week before he can hold a bat again. That is a shame that one of their two 40 HR hitters will miss the rest of this series... A real shame....

Around the League: Fernando Mexicano (23-L) of Cleveland, the ex-Beaver, hit his 5th home run today and now leads the NL in HR and RBI (22). He is hitting .356 and the Indians are tied for 1st place. I wish him the best and am sorry things could not work out in Portland.

Today is Frank Flores' 25th birthday!

We are back on the road, but not far from home in Seattle to play the Rainiers a 2 game set. They split 4 games here over the weekend with the Angels. We were 9-5 against them last season when they were 76-86 in 7th place in the PCL West. We are 21-21 since 2001. They are currently tied for 9th in scoring in the PCL with 4.21 runs per game (Portland is tied for 5th with 4.47). We have scored 5 more runs than they have. The Rainiers are 8th in fewest runs allowed with 3.95 per game (Portland is 6th with 3.58). We have allowed 7 fewer runs than they have. Their run differential is +5 and ours is +17.

Portland Beavers (14-5 .737 3 GA in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Seattle Rainiers (10-9 .526 4 GB in 5th place in the PCL West)

POR: Bill Woodward (23-R 0-1 7.20) vs. SEA: Earl Rogers (29-R 2-2 4.94)

Woodward gave up 4 runs and 10 hits in 4.2 IP last time out to get the loss. Pitching him in the Kingdome is cruel and inhumane, but sending lefty Bruce Ancona in there against their right-handed bashers seems even more cruel.

Rogers is their #1 starter. He gave up 1 run in 8 IP last time out to get a win. He was 16-16 with a 3.68 ERA in 36 starts and 247.1 IP last season, which is not bad in the Kingdome. Only 14 HR allowed. He was 1-2 against us last season with a 5 hit shutout. In the 2 losses he went at least 7 innings in each.

Top of the Eighth:
On the Hill: Mark Thomas (31-R), a free agent from Toronto, where he was their closer with 99 Saves from 2001 to 2003. Of course, he is not the closer in Los Angles with Hal Ockey around.

Instead, Rodolfo Rosado grounds a hit to center... 2 hits all game by the Angels and now 2 in a row... Gregg Buckler grounds into a force at 2nd, 4-6, and Snyder goes to 3rd. 2 outs.
