Top of the First:
Alan Phelps grounds out to 1st, 3-1. Jim Sager lines a hit to left. Russ Jimenez swings at the first pitch and grounds into a force at 2nd, 5-4. Tommy Gibralter lines out to right!

Bottom of the First:

Dave Risinger grounds out to 3rd. Jerry Suazo takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Enrique Ramos strikes out... Oscar Trejo doubles to center and Suazo scores from 1st! 1 to 0, Beavers! You might wonder why Trejo is still on the Beavers with his sub-.600 OPS. The answer is that there is no one at Vancouver (A) who is hitting well enough to get called up... The same goes for Jack Hinckley and Juan Rojas.... Jeff Galka lines a hit to right and Trejo beats the throw home! 2 to 0, Beavers! Denny Peters takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Kim Springer lines a hit to left and the bases are loaded with 2 outs. You may also wonder why Springer is batting in the 7 hole with his stats being better than a lot of guys batting higher. The answer is that every time I move him up in the order, he quits hitting... Rick Mansoor takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4 to force in a run! 3 to 0, Beavers! P Frank Flores swings at the first pitch and lines out to 3rd.

Bottom of the Second:
Dave Risinger lines a hit to left and goes to 2nd on a ground out. Enrique Ramos strikes out again... P Chuck Nelson has 2 strikeouts, both Ramos, the best hitter in the lineup today... Oscar Trejo doubles again, this time down the right field line and Risinger scores! 4 to 0, Beavers!

Bottom of the Fifth:

Jeff Galka and Denny Peters lead off with back to back hits. But the next three make outs.

Top of the Sixth:
With 1 out, Alan Phelps swings at the first pitch and lines a hit to left. Jim Sager lines a hit to center and Phelps beats the throw to 3rd. The Bullpen gets busy. Russ Jimenez pops out to left and the runners hold. Tommy Gibralter lines a hit to center and Phelps scores. 4 to 1, Beavers. Bob Alsip grounds out to 3rd!

Bottom of the Eighth:

New Pitcher: Tom Butterworth (28-R), who pitched 2.1 scoreless inning on Friday. Kim Springer and Rick Mansoor lead off with back to back hits. P Frank Flores swings away, much to my chagrin, and flies out to left. Dave Risinger grounds one to short, but Kevin Shellhammer, who moved there in a double switch, makes a bad throw to 2nd and the bases are loaded with 1 out. Jerry Suazo strikes out... Enrique Ramos grounds out to 1st, unassisted....

Top of the Ninth:

Tommy Gibralter takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4 and Bob Alsip lines a hit to left. Call to the Bullpen: Steve Stewart (24-L). PH Billy Haggar (33-R), batting .316 with 1 HR in 19 AB, grounds into a 4-6-3 double play and Gibralter goes to 3rd! P Stewart balks in the run... 4 to 2, Beavers. Kevin Shellhammer strikes out and THIS Ball Game Belongs to the Beavers!

Won - 4 to 2

We had 11 hits and made 1 error
Houston had 6 hits and made 1 error

Frank Flores (W 14-6) went 8+ innings, allowed 2 runs, 5 hits, 2 walks and struck out 5. He is the 1st 14 game winner in the PCL! Finally!
LHP Steve Stewart (SV 3) went 1 scoreless innings and struck out 1. He balked home a run for Flores.

Chuck Nelson (L 5-15) went 5 innings, gave us 4 runs, 9 hits, 4 walks and struck out 7. He threw a WP. He is the 1st pitcher to lose 3 games to the Beavers this season.

The Oaks are 4th in fewest runs allowed with 3.72 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.13). Their run differential is +23 and ours is +135, still the Best in Baseball.

8 straight games holding an opponent to 3 runs or fewer!

RHP Leonardo Sanchez (H 6) went 1 innings, allowed 1 unearned run, 1 hit and struck out 2.
RHP Rich Larkin (SV 13) pitched 2 scoreless innings, allowed 1 hit and struck out 3.

Editor's Note:
OOTP screwed up and did not give Johnson the win, giving it to Larkin, though it gave Sanchez a Hold properly. I fixed it manually and reported the Bug. Probably is related to Johnson getting hurt to end the 6th inning.

Billy Wright (L 9-9) went 6 innings, gave us 4 runs, 6 hits, 1 walk and struck out 3.

2B A.J. Lee had 2 hits. C Tim Higbee had a hit and a walk and scored a run. 1B Glenn Snowden had a hit, scored a run and had an RBI. SS Dave Risinger hit a double and a triple and had 3 RBI.

Trudy's report on Bobby Johnson is a stiff back. She expects him to be okay by his next start, but it may take a day or two more.

We are making a brief excursion to San Diego to play a 3 game series over the weekend, before coming back home for a 10 game home stand. The Padres just lost 2 of 3 here to Hollywood and have lost 12 of their last 15 to fall behind us in the standings. We are 3-3 against them on the season and split a pair of games the last time we were here, June 21-22. They are 6th in the PCL in scoring with 4.36 runs per game (Portland is #4 with 4.41). The Padres lead the PCL with 118 SB and we are last with 36. They are 2nd in fewest runs allowed with 3.62 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.10). Their run differential is +80 and ours is +140, the Best in Baseball.

Portland Beavers (71-36 .664 9.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West) at

POR: Frank Flores (25-R 14-6 2.70) All-Star/PCLCS MVP vs. SD: Jeff McKeeman (33-R 8-9 3.50)

1B Oscar Trejo (31-R) and OF Jack Hinckley (28-R) were both sent to Vancouver (A). CF Larry Ballard (25-L) and rookie Leon Davis (22-R) have been called up. Davis was our 1st round pick in this year's B Leagues Draft. He is hitting .327 for the Mounties, but not walking very much. But Hinckley wasn't walking any either and was not hitting .327, though he is a better fielder. This gives us 7 outfielders on the team. Ballard can play 2nd and Pemberton can play 2nd or 3rd in a pinch.. Juan Rojas (25-S) is hitting .450 since being sent down, by the way.

I am so nonsuperstitious that I am not going to even mention that today is Friday the 13th.

Kansas City Royals (62-52 .544 8 GB tied for 3rd place in the PCL East) at
Portland Beavers (76-37 .673 13.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

KC: Sergio Peralta (29-R 10-7 2.75) 2-time All-Star(01,03) vs. POR: Barry Phillips (21-R 14-3 1.93) All-Star/Gold Glove

Peralta is their #1 starter. They have three #1 starters (Graham Pethel and Al Johnson). He gave up 3 runs on only 4 hits in 8 IP last time out to get a win. We last faced him last season and beat him, but only scored 3 runs in 8.2 IP.

Phillips is now our #1 starter, though we have not told anyone, so keep it mum. He has not lost in two months, going 6-0 in his last 10 starts. He has only allowed 1 earned run total in his last 3. He is 3rd in the PCL in ERA.

Unbelievable!
3 straight wins in the bottom of the 9th!!!

We had 11 hits and made 1 error

Barry Phillips went 5.1 innings, allowed 3 runs, 9 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks and struck out 6. 104 pitches. At bat, he had a hit.
LHP Steve Stewart (H 11) got 2 outs, allowed 3 runs, 3 hits, 2 walks and struck out 1. That you are allowed to get a Hold by allowing 3 runs to score and only getting 2 batters out is more than a little silly...
RHP Leonardo Sanchez (BS 4) got 2 outs, allowed 1 run, 1 hit and struck out 1.
RHP Denny Jennissen went 1.1 scoreless innings, though he allowed 2 runners to score, allowed 1 hit, 2 walks and struck out 1.

He now has 14 home runs on the season. C Tim Higbee drew 2 walks and scored a run. PH Larry Ballard hit a triple, scored a run and had an RBI. LF Kim Springer had a hit and a walk, scored a run and had an RBI.

For Dallas, everyone in their starting lineup, except the pitcher, had at least 1 hit and they all at least scored a run or had an RBI, but none of them had 3 of anything, which is the minimum requirement for an opponent to get a mention in the post-game report.

Trudy's report on Leonardo Sanchez is back tightness that should be fine in a day or two. She says I have to remember to keep the relievers working regularly or this type of stuff will keep happening... I apologized for my neglect, though she may not have thought I was very sincere as I was still dancing...

Dallas Eagles (64-56 .533 12 GB in 4th place in the PCL East) at
Portland Beavers (81-38 .681 16.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

DAL: John Hanley (23-R 0-8 9.22) Rookie vs. POR: Bobby Johnson (25-R 15-5 2.64)

Hanley has had 3 straight no decisions, which is a big deal for him. Why the Eagles are pitching him over other candidates is a mystery. In 13 starts, he has pitched only 54.2 innings (4.21 per game). He has walked 46 batters (7.6/9 IP) and opposing hitters are batting .342 with 10 HR in 228 AB. Lefties are hitting .410 against him! We have never faced him, but are looking forward to it.

Johnson pitched a CG 7 hitter and allowed 1 run last time out for a win. He is our 3rd straight pitcher taking a shot at becoming the 1st 16 game winner in the Majors. The other two, both chosen to the All-Star team, failed.

PH David Glenn (21-S), the rookie who is 1 for 2 with a double in this series, takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4 to load the bases up... Dern!

Around the League:
Since the All-Star break, every team in the PCL West, except us, has a losing record. The only team in the East with a losing record is Houston. The biggest shocker is that the team with the worst record in the PCL since the break is the San Diego Padres, still 2nd in the West, but now 17.5 games behind. Only the Phillies of the NL, who have just lost their 10th game in a row, have a worse record than the Padres, who are 10-23 (.303).
