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)

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

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.

New Pitcher: Webb McCullough (25-R) with a 9.10 ERA in 57.1 IP. That is not a misprint; his ERA is 9.10. .359 BA against and 42 BB.... I think I would quit pitching him.... Shannon Kuchta swings at his first pitch and hits a home run to left! 10 to 5, Beavers!

I think he should pitch to my boy Kuchta much more often! Would get Shann's stats going!

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!

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.

Portland Beavers (53-77 .408 25 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Hollywood Stars (69-62 .527 9.5 GB in 4th place in the PCL West)

POR: Steve Muir (26-R 9-11 3.71) vs. HOL: Larry Finn (29-R 1-3 4.79)

Muir pitched a CG 5 hitter the last time out and has won 3 of his last 4.

We have not faced Finn before. His first start for the Stars was a shutout on June 27. Since then, he is 0-3 in 8 starts with a 6.27 ERA.

We are back home to play the Denver Bears a 4 game series. They just split 4 games at home with Sacramento. We are 2-2 against them this season. I just realized that I have been mentioning in previous series that this is so and so's first trip to Portland, but we only play 8 games with each team from the East and we each only make one trip to visit each other. The Bears are 11th in the PCL in scoring with 4.19 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.78). Being 11th when you play your home games in Denver is pretty pathetic. Of course, being last in our park is even worse... They are 15th in fewest runs allowed with 5.22 per game (Portland is 8th with 4.43). They have the worst team ERA in baseball (4.90).

Denver Bears (54-82 .397 24 GB tied for 5th place in the PCL East) at
Portland Beavers (54-82 .397 26 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West)

DEN: Jesus Carrasquillo (34-L 5-10 5.42) vs. POR: John Cox (28-L 1-4 5.31) Rookie

We beat Carrasquillo in Denver, scoring 7 runs in 6.2 IP.

Cox pitched a shutout in his last start for Vancouver (A). He got shelled both times in the two starts before that.

The 1st place Angels are in town to play a 3 game series over the weekend.

Los Angeles is last in BA at .242 and we are 2nd to last at .244. They are 1st in fewest runs allowed with 3.23 per game (Portland is 8th with 4.43). They lead in most every pitching category, except CG, and they are 2nd in that.

We are in Hollywood to begin a 3 game series with the Stars. They just beat Seattle 2 of 3 here. We are 1-10 against them on the season, the worst record we have against any team. We were just here two weeks ago and lost a pair of games, getting outscored, 15 to 2. The Stars are 4th in the PCL in scoring with 4.75 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.80). Hollywood leads the League in 2B (238) and BA (.282) and are only 2 off the lead in BB (529). As you would expect, that gives them the lead in OBP (.348). We are last in BB (426) and OBP (.304). They are 14th in fewest runs allowed with 4.71 per game (Portland is still 8th at 4.40).

C Jim Shippy has the flu...

The Oakland Oaks are in Portland to play a 4 game series through the weekend. They just lost a pair of games in Sacramento, but even so, are 12-6 in September and 38-26 (.594) since the All-Star break, the 2nd best record in the PCL behind the just departed San Diego Padres. We are 5-5 against them on the season, but got swept in 3 games the last time they were in Portland at the beginning of August. They are 7th in the PCL in scoring with 4.46 runs per game (Portland is last with 3.79). The Oaks are 10th in fewest runs allowed with 4.44 per game (Portland is 8th with 4.36).

Oakland Oaks (77-74 .510 11 GB in 5th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (62-89 .411 26 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West)

OAK: Cary Cornman (34-R 16-8 3.43) vs. POR: Roger Lerer (27-L 0-1 7.20)

Cornman is their #1 starter. He is 1-0 in 3 starts against us, but has a 5.29 ERA in 17 IP. We hammered him the first two times we faced him, but he escaped with no decisions. He held us to 1 R on 2 H in 8 IP last time, though, beating us.

Lerer did not make it through the 2nd inning in his first start back from the DL last time out and Oakland is 30-15 vs. lefties on the year. So, it looks like another depressing day for Lerer...
