We placed P Bobby Johnson (22-R) on the 15 day Disabled List and recalled P John Cox (28-L) from Vancouver (A).

We are in Tinseltown to play a 2 game series with the Hollywood Stars. They just got swept 3 games in Seattle over the weekend after sweeping 4 games in Sacramento. We are 1-8 against them on the season and lost 2 games the last time we visited them back in June. Over the weekend, Dave McDowell of San Francisco hit his 5th home run against us tying Larry Church for the most against us on the season. Now, Mr. Church will get a chance to break the tie... The Stars are 3rd in scoring in the PCL with 4.79 runs per game (Portland is up to 15th with 3.90!). Their hitters lead the League in OBP at .350. Portland is last at .306. They are 14th in fewest runs allowed with 4.73 per game (Portland is 8th with 4.35). The Stars' Park, Chase Field, is a great place to be a hitter.
