We are in Dallas to play the Eagles a 4 game series. They just split a pair of games here with San Antonio. We were 2-6 against them during the regular season last year when they were 99-63 and won the PCL East, but beat them in 6 games in the PCL Championship Series. We are 6-18 (.250) since 2001, the worst record we have against any other team. They are currently 9th in scoring in the PCL with 4.14 runs per game (Portland is #3 with 4.64, but have only scored 4 total runs in our last 4 games). The Eagles lead the PCL in fewest runs allowed with 3.38 per game (Portland is #2 with 3.52). We have allowed 8 more runs than they have. Their run differential is +44 and ours is +65, still 3 ahead of Fernando Mexicano and his Cleveland Indians for the Best in Baseball. The Eagles have 3 starting pitchers on the DL right now, so maybe we can score some runs.

Portland Beavers (38-20 .655 5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Dallas Eagles (31-27 .534 1.5 GB in 4th place in the PCL East)

POR: John Krawczyk (25-L 2-0 3.65) Rookie vs. DAL: Ron Gallant (28-L 1-1 5.79)

Krawczyk gave up 6 runs in 3.1 IP last time out, but our offense got him off the hook by scoring 9 runs.

This will be Gallant's 4th start of the season. Last time out, he only went 1.1 scoreless innings and had to leave with an injury. We faced him once, way back in 2001 when he was a rookie and he shut us out on 6 hits.

Monday, June 14, 2004

CF Jayson Pemberton (20-R) hurt his back last night after we got home in the wee hours of the morning. Trudy the Trainer says he'll be out 2 weeks, so we put him on the DL and called up RF Greg Unser (28-R), who was batting .276 with a .701 OPS for Vancouver (A). We got him in a trade with Milwaukee in November for a player they ended up cutting.

We are back home for a short 2 game home stand against the Sacramento Solons. They won 2 of 3 at home versus Hollywood over the weekend. We are 3-2 against them on the season and won 2 of 3 the last time they were here, April 16-18. They are currently 11th in the PCL in scoring with 3.74 runs per game (Portland is #3 with 4.61, but are only averaging 3.23 in June). The Solons are 12th in fewest runs allowed with 4.48 per game (Portland is #2 with 3.50). Their run differential is -46 and ours is +69, still the best in Baseball.

Sacramento Solons (26-36 .419 15 GB in 7th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (41-21 .661 4.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

SAC: Mel Aguero (31-R 0-1 11.57) vs. POR: Barry Phillips (21-R 8-2 2.04) Gold Glove

This will be Aguero's 2nd start of the season. He gave up 6 runs in 4.2 IP in his first. He was released by Baltimore just before the season began and signed by the Solons just 5 days ago, the day he made his debut for them. We have never faced him.

Phillips has lost his last 2 starts, though he only gave up 2 runs in 6 IP last time out. We scored 2 totals runs in the losses.

Today is the Trading Deadline and I would really like to add another left-handed reliever, but there are none to be had without giving up a player I don't want to part with. So we will play the rest of the way with only 1 left-hander.... At least until he gets hurt and then we have none.... Vancouver (A) has 16 pitchers on their roster right now and exactly one of them is left-handed. He is Larry Warner (28-L) and he faced 1 batter in 2002 for the Beavers and gave up a home run....

Sacramento Solons (27-36 .429 14 GB in 7th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (41-22 .651 3.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

POR: Bobby Johnson (25-R 7-4 3.40) vs. SF: Steve Muir (29-R 4-5 4.85) Gold Glove(01) ex-Beaver

Johnson gave up 3 runs in 7 IP last time out and had a no decision.

Muir gave up 5 runs (4 earned) in 3.2 IP in his last start and took a loss. The biggest reason we traded him was that his walks per 9 innings had gone up from 2.1 in 2003 to 5.1 this year for us. Since being traded to the Seals, he is walking 1.4 per 9... This is the first time we have faced him. He is pitching with a mild abdominal strain.

It is his 4th shutout of the season, which leads the NL, and ties for the Major League lead and it is the 5th shutout of his career. He is now 9-3 with a 2.45 ERA in 15 starts. The Dodgers won, 2 to 0.
June 18 - San Diego beat Sacrament at home, 4 to 1, for their 10th win in a row.
June 18 - Rookie LF Al Scannella (21-L) of St. Louis had 3 hits with a home run and a walk, stole a base, scored 3 runs and had 3 RBI at Cincinnati. The Cardinals won, 9 to 3.
June 19 - Los Angeles beat Oakland at home, 7 to 6, in 22 innings. SS Mike West (25-R) hit a solo home run for the Oaks in the top of the 22nd inning, but the Angels scored 2 runs on 4 singles, 3 of them with 2 outs, to win the game. 1B Gregg Buckner (25-L), acquired from the Oaks in a trade in March, had 5 hits in 10 AB with a home run, stole a base, scored 3 runs and had 2 RBI.

We are in San Diego to play the hottest team in Baseball, the Padres, a 2 game set. They swept Sacramento in 4 games here over the weekend and have won 12 games in a row, a streak we started by losing 2 games here, June 8-9. We are 2-2 against them on the season. They are currently 3rd in the PCL in scoring with 4.57 runs per game (Portland is #5 with 4.50 and falling fast...). The Padres are 2nd in fewest runs allowed with 3.42 per game (Portland is now #1 with 3.40). Their run differential is +79 and ours is +75. They have passed us for the Best in Baseball!

POR: John Krawczyk (25-L 3-0 3.13) Rookie vs. SD: Bobby Wolfe (27-R 1-5 5.20)

Wolfe got off to a rough start this season, but won his last game with 1 run allowed in 7 IP. In his last 3 starts, he has an ERA of 2.14 and has not lost. We scored 5 runs in 4.2 IP when we faced him in April, but he had a no decision and we had to go to 15 innings to win the game.

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: Metropolitan Stadium
Weather: 78 F, Clear Skies, with an 8 MPH wind blowing right to left
Attendance: 20,241

Top of the First:
Bob Ellis, filling in the the injured Kevin McKinney, who will be out 10 more days, takes a 3-2 pitch for strike three! Jim Jaeger swings at a 3-2 pitch and flies out to deep left. Tom Boyles lines out to center! 1-2-3!

Bottom of the First:
I do not even care much if we win or lose, I just want to score some derned runs! A.J. Lee grounds out to 2nd. Enrique Ramos squibs one and is out, 2-3. Tim Higbee grounds a hit to right. Glenn Snowden grounds out to the pitcher... He is in a royal funk...

I was hoping that being at home would change our batting fortunes, but we have just the one hit through 4 innings....

Top of the Fifth:

Eric Daniels leads off with a double to center. Johnnie Graham walks on 4 pitches. Colin Woodford grounds into a force at 2nd, 3-6, and Daniels goes to 3rd. Carroll Morse flies out to center and Daniels tags up and beats the throw to the plate. 1 to 0, Bears. P Mike Sims pokes a hit to left... Bob Ellis swings at a 3-2 pitch and pops out to center.

Top of the Sixth:
Jim Jaeger walks on 4 pitches and the Bullpen gets to work. Tom Boyles pokes a hit to left. With 1 out, Eric Daniels walks to load the bases up with 1 out. Johnnie Graham beats out an infield hit and Jaeger scores... 2 to 0, Bears. Call to the Bullpen: Steve Stewart (24-L). Colin Woodford strikes out! Call to the Bullpen: Leonardo Sanchez (25-R). Jack Hinckley is into play center in a double switch. Carroll Morse grounds out to 2nd!!

Bottom of the Seventh:
Tim Higbee leads off with our third hit of the day, a home run to right! 2 to 1, Bears. He now leads the team in HR with 15. He has hit 5 since Glenn Snowden hit his last one... That is only the second home run P Mike Sims has allowed this season. Snowden grounds a hit to center. Jeff Galka triples to right and Snowden scores! Tie Game: 2 to 2! I think from here on out, we will not bat at all until the 7th inning; we'll just take a 0 every inning and let the other team keep batting. It will be less frustrating.... Kim Springer flies out to deep left and Galka tags up and scores! 3 to 2, Beavers!

Top of the Ninth:

On the Hill: Ramon Andrade (29-R), after a perfect 8th, retiring their 3-4-5 hitters. But, of course, we cannot have a perfect 9th; that is right out of the question! Johnnie Graham takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Colin Woodford bunts him to 2nd. PH Harry Garcia (35-L), batting .283 with 5 HR in 53 AB, strikes out! PH Victor Maldonado (29-L), batting .292 in 24 AB, could be walked as far as I am concerned, but he is not and he hits a home run to left... 4 to 3, Bears. What is the point in searching the world for relievers who have not given up home runs? They will give up home runs for us regardless.... That is the fourth home run Andrade has allowed this season and third this month and he gave up 3 in the past 3 years combined.... Bob Ellis grounds a hit to center.... Call to the Bullpen: Larry McLellan (28-R). Jim Jaeger strikes out.

Bottom of the Ninth:
New Pitcher: Javier Juarez (29-L), their closer now, with a 5.61 ERA. Tom Santacroce, who was their closer, is out for the season with an injury. The Bears traded for Juarez from Baltimore on June 10. He has a career 3.31 ERA in 241.2 IP. Glenn Snowden loops a hit to left center. PH Dave Risinger (28-R) grounds into a force at 2nd, 3-6. Jeff Galka draws a walk. PH Greg Unser (28-R) strikes out looking on 3 pitches... 2 down. PH Juan Rojas (25-S) walks on 4 pitches to load the bases up. Jack Hinckley strikes out on 3 pitches....

Lost - 4 to 3

7th straight game with 3 or fewer runs...
