Monday Morning Report

NL Player of the Week - Johnny Leger, SS, Washington (26-R .291/.357/.436) Had 11 hits with 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 BB, 2 SO, 3 R and 2 RBI in 6 G (2nd PoW in 3 weeks)
PCL Player of the Week - Ricardo Gil, P, Portland (22-R 6-3 2.49) Went 2-0 in 2 starts and allowed 1 run in 17.1 with 10 H, 3 BB and 12 SO.

(Slash lines are for the season, not the week)

July 23 - All the highlights I had typed out for this week have disappeared somehow and I am not going to redo them....


One big thing that I remember happening was that 1B Hilton Delaney (39-R) of New York got injured and will miss the rest of the season. He is leading the NL in HR and RBI.

As promised, Bobby Weatherford (30-R) was sent back to Vancouver (A) and RP Jeff Gleason (24-R) was recalled. He began the season with the Beavers.

The Hollywood Stars are in town to play a 3 game series over the weekend and finish up this home stand. They just lost 2 of 3 at their home to their crosstown rivals, the Angels. We are 1-5 against them this year and split 2 games with them the last time they were here, back in early June. They lead the PCL (and the Majors) in scoring with 4.86 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.66). Their batters are hitting .285 with a .782 OPS as a team; we only have two hitters that are hitting that well... They are 14th in fewest runs allowed with 4.91 per game (Portland is up to 7th with 4.33).

In his 4 starts since returning from the DL, Gil has not allowed more than 1 run in any of them and he has won all 4.

Another new low in attendance... Vancouver, our A ball team, is playing in New Orleans tonight and the attendance is almost double what we have here in Portland....

There are advantages to an empty park! For example, for the spectators, there's more room to put your things in the three seats on either side of your own bum.

We are back in Sacramento to play a pair of games. We were here two weeks ago and swept the Solons in 3 games. They just won 2 of 3 here from Seattle. We are 5-4 against them on the season. They are 15th in scoring in the PCL with 3.88 runs per game (Portland is 16th (last) with 3.60). If we can beat them by 30 runs today, we can move out of last place! They are last in HR (55). We are last in BA (.239) and walks (305), which gives us an OBP (.297) 20 points lower than anyone else. The Solons are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 4.06 per game (Portland is 7th with 4.29).

Portland Beavers (44-66 .400 23.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Sacramento Solons (55-56 .495 13 GB in 6th place in the PCL West)

POR: Bobby Johnson (22-R 11-8 3.11) Rookie vs. SAC: Juan Sanchez (26-R 12-10 3.33)

After 5 wins in a row, Johnson gave up 6 runs last time out and took his first loss since June.

Sanchez is their #1 starter. We are 3-0 against him and he has a 5.21 ERA against us.

We are in the Lone Star state to play San Antonio a 4 game series through the weekend. They just split a pair of games here with Houston. We swept them in 4 games back in early April in Portland. The Missions are 14th in the PCL in scoring with 3.90 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.67). They are 8th in fewest runs allowed with 4.39 per game (Portland is 7th with 4.27).

Portland Beavers (46-66 .411 23.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
San Antonio Missions (45-67 .402 19 GB tied for 7th (last) place in the PCL East)

POR: Ricardo Gil (22-R 6-3 2.24) Rookie vs. SA: Cal Ferguson (31-R 4-3 4.44)

Gil is 4-0 in his 5 starts since returning from the DL with only 3 earned runs allowed. He only gave up 1 unearned run last time out in 7.1 IP, but did not get a decision. He is due for a major ERA correction...

We faced Ferguson back in April and got 9 hits and 4 runs in 6 IP and beat him.

Top of the First:
Bob Beaver swings at the first pitch and grounds a hit up the middle. We have talked and coached him up on his stealing, so let's see if it worked.... Gilberto Valdez strikes out. Shannon Kuchta flies out to center. Glenn Snowden fouls out to the catcher... Well, at least Beaver did not get thrown out.

Bottom of the First:

Gwang-sam Jean flies out to center. Salvatore Flores swings at the first pitch and grounds out to 2nd. Jim Jaeger takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Paulin Paruzzi grounds a hit to right and Jaeger goes to 3rd. Al Lawson walks to load the bases up. Jeff Parrish, an All-Star, lines out to center!

Top of the Fifth:

Glenn Snowden leads off with a walk. With1 out, Jack Hinckley draws another walk, our sixth of the game. Juan Rojas doubles to center and Snowden scores! 5 to 0, Beavers! They walk Russ Albright intentionally. When a guy has walked 6 batters in less then 5 innings, I would not be so eager to load the bases up for him... However, they made the right call this time as P Steve Muir grounds into a 5-4-3 double play.

Top of the Sixth:

New Pitcher: Bob Williams (32-L) with a 2.36 ERA in 61 IP. Bob Beaver lines his third hit of the day to center. Gilberto Valdez grounds into a force at 2nd, 3-6.

Top of the Eighth:

On the Hill: Darryl Johnson (30-R), beginning his second inning of work. With 1 out, Gilberto Valdez grounds a hit to right. With 2 outs, Glen Snowden takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Fernando Mexicano swings at a 3-2 pitch and doubles to the right field corner and both runners score! 9 to 1, Beavers! After getting the third out, P Darryl Johnson sits down on the mound in pain...

Bottom of the Eighth:

New Pitcher: Ivan Sanchez (28-L). All of our right-handers in the Pen are tired. Both of our lefties are fresh, but they both get tattooed by right-handed batters... Jeff Parrish doubles to right center. Jesus Muniz triples to right. 9 to 2, Beavers. Jerry Portela walks. Victor Maldonado (26-L) is sent up to pinch hit and he is a lefty and he strikes out. Gwang-sam Jean is a lefty and he lines out to 1st and Glenn Snowden fires the ball to 3rd to double off Ruiz!

Top of the Ninth:

New Pitcher: Pete Berg (31-L) with a 6.75 ERA in 9.1 IP and he is not fresh, having thrown 41 pitches yesterday. With 2 outs, 3B Melvin Rodarte (32-L) takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Bob Beaver grounds a hit to left. PH Don Neumann (31-S) grounds a hit to left and Rodarte scores! 10 to 2, Beavers! Shannon Kuchta doubles to right and both runners score! 12 to 2, Beavers! I was sure hoping he'd try for a triple... That would have set a record! Glenn Snowden gets beaned. PH Franklin Felix (23-R) strikes out looking....

Bottom of the Ninth:
New Pitcher: Woody Claar (31-L). Can he hold them to under 10 runs this inning? Salvatore Flores, who is a lefty, doubles to center... Jim Jaeger grounds a hit to left and Flores stops at 3rd. Paulin Paruzzi, a lefty, flies out to deep center and Flores trots home. 12 to 3, Beavers. Al Lawson hits a home run to left center... 12 to 5, Beavers. That's all they get, though!

Won - 12 to 5
