Hollywood Stars (73-68 .518 23.5 GB in 3rd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (96-44 .686 18.5 GA in 1st place in the PCL West)

HOL: Steve Gonzalez (34-R 4-8 6.89) vs. POR: John Krawczyk (25-L 7-6 2.49) Rookie

Gonzalez, an ex-Beaver, is pitching for his 3rd team this season, being claimed off waivers each time. He has lost his last 4 starts and has not made it through 5 innings in any of them. We have not faced him since 2002, when he was 1-1 in 4 starts against us playing for Sacramento. He is pitching with a strained back. If this guy shuts us down, I will have a hissy fit...

Krawczyk has lost his last 2 starts, but we did not score any runs at all in either one.

We put A.J. Lee on the Disabled List and called up OF Larry Ballard (25-L). We wanted to call up 1B Oscar Trejo (31-R), but he is hurt.

The San Diego Padres are in town to play a 3 game series over the weekend. They just won 2 of 3 at home versus Sacramento. After a bad July and a miserable August that saw them fall out of contention, they have righted their ship in September and are 12-2. We are 7-4 against them on the season and split a pair of games the last time they were here, August 30-31. They are 6th in scoring in the PCL with 4.24 runs per game (Portland is #3 with 4.59). They lead the PCL with 152 SB and we are last with 49. They have one player with 46. The Padres are also 6th in fewest runs allowed with 3.87 per game (Portland is #1, but getting higher, at 3.16). Our dream of finishing with under 3 runs allowed per game is looking like a long shot. Their run differential is +54 and ours is +208.

San Diego Padres (82-64 .562 18 GB in 2nd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (100-46 .685 18 GA Champions of the PCL West)

SD: Bobby Wolfe (27-R 7-11 5.03) vs. POR: Frank Flores (25-R 18-7 2.98) All-Star/PCLCS MVP

Wolfe allowed 1 run in 6.1 IP last time out for a win. He is 2-0 in 3 starts against us this season, which is frankly embarrassing. He held us to 4 hits and no runs in 7.1 IP he last time we faced him.

Flores gave up 5 runs (3 earned) and 8 hits in 5 IP last time out, but escaped with a no decision.

Won - 8 to 5

With 7 home runs!

Around the League:
Ex-Beaver Vic Kyzer (25-L) of Milwaukee became the 1st 20 game winner in the Majors today. He is 20-9 with a 3.27 ERA. I guess the Brewers are liking that trade....
