During the break, we made some roster moves:
RP Wade Ellis (24-R) has been sent to Vancouver and Dave Unterbrink (30-R) has been called up. Unterbrink missed the 1st half of the season with an injury and pitched in 3 games for Vancouver before the All-Star game and is currently suffering from some forearm stiffness. He should be good to go by Saturday (when he will probably get hurt again).

C Marcell Amici (31-R) and C Jim Shippy (30-R_ have been called up and C Craig Petitto (26-R) and LF Sergio Vallejo (26-R) have been sent down.

The East Division leading Kansas City Royals are here to kick off the second half with a 4 game series through the weekend. They lost 3 of 4 in Los Angeles before the All-Star Break, getting shutout 3 straight times in the final 3 games of the series. We split 4 games with them in Kansas City the second series of the season. They are 11th in the PCL in scoring with 4.12 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.63). They are 2nd in fewest runs allowed with 3.27 per game (Portland is down to 11th with 4.61). They have a team ERA of 2.86, but Los Angeles has a ridiculous team ERA of 2.46.

Kansas City Royals (50-36 .581 in 1st place in the PCL East) at
Portland Beavers (34-53 .391 21.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West)

KC: George Wiedemann (24-R 8-8 3.93) vs. POR: Bobby Johnson (22-R 8-7 3.23) Rookie

We have not faced Wiedemann before. He is their #2 starter.

Johnson pitched a 6 hit shutout his last time out.

Bottom of the Second:

With 2 outs, Shannon Kuchta gets a single and then Jack Hinckley jerks a home run down the left field line! His first of the year! 3 to 2, Royals.

Franklin Felix works the count full and then pops out to left.

Top of the Ninth:

On the Hill: David Fuentes (25-R), beginning his 2nd inning of work after pitching a perfect 8th. With 1 out, PH Ron Sather (34-R) lines a hit to center. With 2 outs, Sergio de Santiago draws a walk. Ken Manning, of course, doubles to right and both runners score... 5 to 3, Royals. Call to the Bullpen: Woody Claar (31-L). Larry Laramie doubles to right and Manning scores... 6 to 3, Royals. Call to the Bullpen: Garry Ayers (28-R). Mickey Woods doubles to left and Laramie scores... 7 to 3, Royals. Woods is hurt and they send in a pinch-runner: Rickey Zurek (29-R).

Gil has not pitch in over two months. I should have sent him to A ball to get in shape, but I figure he can't be any worse right now than what the other options are. He'll prove me wrong today, I am certain.

They are 14th in scoring in the PCL with 3.96 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.64). Sacramento is the only team in the PCL that has hit fewer home runs than Portland (50 to 58). They are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 4.02 per game (Portland is still 10th with 4.53).

Top of the First:

Ed Holle flies out to deep left. Jim Sager flies out to center. Russ Jimenez drives one to deep right center, but CF Jack Hinckley runs it down! 1-2-3!

Bottom of the First:

Bob Beaver takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. He gets caught stealing... 1 for 6 now... We need to have a talk with him... Franklin Felix pops out to left. Fernando Mexicano doubles to right center. #23 in 272 AB. Glenn Snowden grounds one hard to 3rd, but Bob Alsip makes the play.

Bottom of the Second:
Russ Albright and Melvin Rodarte lead off with back to back walks. Jack Hinckley takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4 to load them up without us hitting anything. Dave Risinger lines out to left and Albright tags up and scores. 1 to 0, Beavers! P Ricardo Gil bunts the runners up. Bob Beaver beats out an infield hit and Rodarte scores! 2 to 0, Beavers! Franklin Felix strikes out...

Top of the Fourth:
Jim Sager gets their first hit, a double down the right field line. Russ Jimenez grounds a hit to left and Sager stops at 3rd. Jimenez tries to steal 2nd, but C Russ Albright throws him out! He is now 21 for 42! With the infield in, Mike Oakley grounds out to 3rd and Sager holds. 2 outs. Of course, Bob Alsip grounds a hit to left and Sager scores... 2 to 1, Beavers.

That looked deep enough to score. Melvin Rodarte swings at the first pitch and grounds out to 2nd...

Bottom of the Sixth:
With 1 out, Dave Risinger is up. I thought about pinch-hitting for him with Shannon Kuchta, but decided that since we have the lead, we'll keep his glove out there. He hits a home run to left! 3 to 1, Beavers!

Top of the Ninth:
P Ricardo Gil is at 94 pitches. With 1 out, Mike Oakley grounds a hit to left. Bob Alsip lines a hit to left. Call to the Bullpen: Ivan Sanchez (28-L).

Borrero flies out to the warning track in left and Wertz tags up and moves to 3rd. 2 outs. PH Tony Norris (28-R) is sent up. Call to the Bullpen: Jennings Sims (28-R).
