P John Cox (28-L) was sent back to Vancouver (A) and P Steve Bacha (27-R) was called up. We traded for him from Cincinnati on June 9. We gave the Reds a no-hit, no-glove slacker (C Dan Leonard(28-L)) for him, so I do not think he is going to succeed, but he is 1-0 in his 3 starts since the trade with a 2.70 ERA in 20 IP with 15 SO. Tentatively, we are scheduled to get P Ricardo Gil (22-R) back in a week.

We are in Seattle to play a three game series with the Rainiers over the weekend. They just lost a pair of games here to Oakland and have a 5 game losing streak that we can cure. We are 1-2 against them this season, all 3 games played in Portland, April 27-29. They are 5th in the PCL in scoring with 4.54 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.81). The Rainiers are 9th in fewest runs allowed with 4.56 per game (Portland is 11th with 4.67).

POR: Rex Williams (24-R 1-3 4.46) Rookie vs. SEA: Earl Rogers (26-R 5-6 5.52)

Williams went 7 innings last time out and only allowed 2 runs on 8 hits in a no decision.

Our win against Seattle was against Rogers. We scored 5 runs in 4.2 innings. He is their #1 starter, even though he has the worst ERA in their rotation.

Fernando Mexicano lines one into left center 413 feet for a home run! 2 to 0, Beavers! Glenn Snowden swings at the first pitch and flies out to deep center. Shannon Kuchta grounds an 0-2 pitch up the middle for a hit. Jack Hinckley doubles down the right field line and Kuchta scores from 1st! 3 to 0, Beavers! Sergio Vallejo grounds out to the pitcher.

Bottom of the First:

Dan McKee works the count full and then pops out to 2nd. Adam Carter flies out to deep center. Ronaldo Entrevinhas swings at the first pitch and flies out deep down the right field line. 1-2-3!

Top of the Fourth:
With 1 out, Jack Hinckley grounds a single up the middle and then Sergio Vallejo sends the first pitch he sees into the seats in right center! 5 to 0, Beavers. That does it for P Marty Becker. New Pitcher: Ray Kozlowski (26-R). He has 39 SO in 36.2 IP, but 33 BB. He gets the 8 and 9 hitters out, though.

Bottom of the Fourth:
The Rainiers get their first two hits of the game, but P Steve Muir keeps them off the scoreboard.

Bottom of the Sixth:
The Rainiers get their first two batters on base when 3B Fernando Mexicano boots a groundball off the bat of Adam Carter and Ronaldo Entrevinhas lines a hit to center. A wild pitch moves the runners up. Willie Bethune flies out to center and Carter tags up and scores. 5 to 1, Beavers. That is all they get, though.

Bottom of the Seventh:
A 1 out walk to Don Kelly and a hit by PH Larry Courson (30-L) puts runners at the corners and get our Bullpen jumping. Dan McKee swings at a 3-2 pitch and misses!

Bottom of the Eighth:

Editor's Note: The triple switch is NOT a brilliant innovation, but was only made because I am rusty as a manager and pulled out the wrong guy (Petitto) trying to make a double switch...

Chris Simpson pops out to right for the first out. John Roberts grounds into a 6-4-3 double play!!

Won - 5 to 2

Independence Day

Ivan Sanchez has been removed from the rotation and will get a trial in the bullpen as a lefty specialist. LHP Dick Register will take his spot in the rotation and go today. There is no one in A Ball worth giving another look... Ricardo Gil (22-R), our other rookie starter who we have high hopes for, is out with a strained hamstring and is listed as day-to-day with no timetable for his return...

Portland Beavers (33-49 .402 19.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at

We have faced Riley once before and he shut us out for 10.1 innings, but we eventually won the game in the 15th. He is 2-8 in his last 10 starts, though 7 have been Quality outings. The Padres scored 12 runs total in those 8 losses.
