Glenn Snowden was 1 for 2 with a walk and a run scored. Enrique Ramos was 0 for 3. Barry Phillips, having pitched on Sunday, did not get into the game.

The A Leagues also had their All-Star game today. RF Leon Davis (22-R), our 1st pick in this year's B Leagues Draft, was the only Vancouver Mountie to make the team. He started the game in right field and went 1 for 2 with a double and 3 RBI. The International League scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th to lose to the American Association, 14 to 3.

The San Antonio Missions are here to kick off the second half with a 4 game series through the weekend. They lost 3 of 4 at Sacramento to end the first half last weekend. We won 3 of 4 games in San Antonio, April 8-11, holding them to 5 totals runs. They are last in the PCL in scoring with 2.85 runs per game (Portland is #4 with 4.54). The Missions are on pace to score 462 runs for the season, which would shatter the current record for futility in the PCL of 575 runs scored by the San Diego Padres last year. The Major League mark is 515 runs scored by Brooklyn in 2001. The Padres, by the way, are on pace to score 738 runs this season. The Missions are 11th in fewest runs allowed with 4.41 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.17). Their run differential is -136, the worst in Baseball, and ours is +119, now the best in Baseball! Which means we are likely to lose 3 of 4 games this series...

San Antonio Missions (30-57 .345 22.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL East) at
Portland Beavers (58-29 .667 3.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

SA: Mitch Bagley (22-R 6-10 2.67) Gold Glove vs. POR: Bobby Johnson (25-R 10-4 2.76)

Bagley is their #1 starter. He lost his last start by giving up 4 runs in 8 IP. but only allowed 4 hits and 2 walks. He started the one game the Missions won against us in San Antonio and he shut us out on 5 hits.

Johnson has allowed 5 total runs in his last 5 starts (38 IP). He gave up 1 run in 8 IP last time out, but did not get a decision.

Top of the Seventh:

Ken Shepherd leads off with a grounder up the middle, but A.J. Lee makes a great stop and throws him out! But Lee calls out Trudy the Trainer... Dave Risinger (28-R) goes in to play 2nd. The next two strike out!

Top of the Ninth:
Still scoreless... P John Krawczyk is at 88 pitches. He has had a great game and it will be a shame to see him get a loss... 1 hit and no unintentional walks allowed... P Preston Rogers is allowed to hit, having a great game himself with 4 hits and 2 walks allowed, and he swings at the first pitch and grounds out hard to 3rd. Ken Shepherd swings at the first pitch and grounds out to short. Duane Bailey grounds their second hit of the game to left... He tries to steal and C Tim Higbee throws him out!!

P Preston Rogers is allowed to hit and flies out to right.

Bottom of the Tenth:

New Pitcher: Danny Billings (27-R) with a 3.03 ERA in 29.2 IP. He has been reinstated as their closer over Larry Hedglin, who was the closer when he blew a Save and took a loss on Friday. Denny Peters flies out to deep center... PH Oscar Trejo (31-R), who is 1 for his last 9, grounds out to short....

Lost - 1 to 0

San Antonio had 4 hits and made no errors

John Krawczyk (L 4-3) went 9+ innings, allowed 1 run, 4 hits, 2 walks (2 INT), 1 HBP and struck out 5. 105 pitches. 2nd time we have had a pitcher give up 1 run with a 70+ Game Score and lose this season (Bobby Johnson) and they both happened within 9 days of each other...
RHP Denny Jennissen went 1 scoreless inning, allowed 1 walk and struck out 1.

Preston Rogers (W 3-14) went 9.1 scoreless innings, gave us 5 hits, 2 walks and struck out 4. He balked. 118 pitches.

2B Dave Risinger drew a walk in is only PA. RF Enrique Ramos hit a double. C Tim Higbee had 2 hits with a double and threw out both runners who tried to steal.

Trudy's report on A.J. Lee is a strained back that will bother him for about a week.

We are in Seattle to play the Rainiers a 3 game series over the weekend. They were just swept here in 4 games by Milwaukee. We are 3-3 against them on the season and lost a pair of games the last time we were here, May 17-18. They are 8th in scoring in the PCL with 4.31 runs per game (Portland is down to #5 with 4.42). We have hit 3 total home runs in the last 11 games, all of them by 1B Glenn Snowden. The Rainiers are 10th in fewest runs allowed with 4.38 per game (Portland is still #1 with 3.23). Their run differential is -6 and ours is +113, still the Best in Baseball.

Portland Beavers (62-33 .653 3.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Seattle Rainiers (48-48 .500 14.5 GB in 5th place in the PCL West)

POR: John Krawczyk (25-L 4-3 2.65) Rookie vs. SEA: Bill Foley (29-R 5-9 5.28) Silver Slugger(01,03)

Krawczyk pitched 9 shutout innings last time out, but gave up a run in the 10th and lost. Pitching him in the Kingdome against Ronaldo Entrevinhas and Luis Hernandez is a bit scary, but we have no other viable options.

Foley gave up 5 runs and 3 HR in 8 IP here to the Twins in his last start, but had a no decision. He was 21-8 with a 3.32 ERA last year. He is 1-1 against us this season, with 1 great game and 1 clunker.

POR: Ron Marling (23-R 5-1 2.36) Rookie vs. SEA: Dick Funicello (38-R 1-6 7.93)

Marling gave up 10 hits and 2 walks in 6.2 IP last time out, but only 2 runs and got a win. He was the only fella that could beat the Twins last series.

Here is how bad Funicello is now: The Seals, desperate for starting pitching, released him on June 27. The Rainiers singed him 2 days later. In 2 starts for Seattle, he has an 11.25 ERA in 8 IP, but no decisions. We beat him when he was with San Francisco, scoring 7 runs in 3 IP.

We are back home to play the Hollywood Stars a 2 game set. They lost 2 of 3 in San Francisco over the weekend. We are 6-3 against them this season and won 2 games the last time they were here, June 28-29. They are 12th in the PCL in scoring with 3.47 runs per game (Portland is up to #3 with 4.52). They are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 3.81 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.17). Their run differential is -33 and ours is +132, still the Best in Baseball.

Hollywood Stars (49-49 .500 16 GB in 4th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (65-33 .663 6 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

HOL: Antonio Gonzalez (25-L 4-2 1.85) vs. POR: Frank Flores (25-R 13-5 2.56) All-Star/PCLCS MVP

Gonzalez is their #1 starter. He gave up 3 runs in 5.1 IP last time out in a no decision. He cannot throw 100 pitches anymore due to his numerous injuries; I do not know why they do not put him in the Bullpen. We have faced him twice this season, including on Opening Day and have not scored a run off him, but he was no wins and has only pitched 6.1 innings.

Flores will be making his 3rd try at becoming the 1st 14 game winner in the Majors. If he does not get it this game, he is going to get passed. He last two starts since pitching in the All-Star Game have been duds, allowing 9 runs (7 earned) in 8.2 total innings.
