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.

Thursday, July 12, 2001

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

The Angels are 14th in scoring in the PCL with 3.92 runs per game (Portland is last with 3.70). They are 1st in fewest runs allowed with 2.91 per game (Portland is up to 8th with 4.45).

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)

(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.

Friday, August 3, 2001

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).

Hollywood Stars (54-54 .500 12 GB in 5th place place in the PCL West) at

HOL: Ellison Anderson (29-R 1-2 3.34) vs. POR: Ricardo Gil (22-R 6-3 2.49) Rookie

We have not faced Anderson before. He is extremely injury prone and had had to leave both of his last two starts early with health issues. In 8 starts, he has only pitched 29.2 innings. He's been pretty good when he can go.

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.

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: Multnomah County Stadium
Weather: 71 F, Overcast, with an 8 MPH wind blowing out to right
Attendance: 5,110
