2nd record crowd in a row!

Top of the First:
Harvey Turner swings at a 3-2 pitch and whiffs! Ralph McKinney grounds out to 3rd. Dennis Rayner lines one down the right field line, but Jerry Suazo runs it down! 1-2-3!

Bottom of the First:
Jerry Suazo pops out to left. Brian Mitchell strikes out. Fernando Mexicano takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Glenn Snowden strikes out...

Bottom of the Second:
Carlos Lopez lines a hit to center and Dave Risinger takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. It is amazing how much he is walking this year! He now has 13 walks and 76 AB. Last year, he had 25 BB and 413 AB. With 1 out, Juan Rojas gets beaned to load the bases up. Rondey Moe grounds a hit to center and 2 runs score!! 2 to 0, Beavers! Jerry Suazo walks on 4 pitches to load them back up. Brian Mitchell takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4 to force in a run! 3 to 0, Beavers! Fernando Mexicano flies out to deep right, but not deep enough to keep P Moe from being thrown out at the plate by Dennis Rayner...

Bottom of the Third:
Glenn Snowden walks on 4 pitches, the 5th walk issued by rookie P Bob Hill. A wild pitch sends Snowden to 2nd. Carlos Lopez takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Dave Risinger swings at the first pitch and grounds into a force at 2nd, 3-6, and Snowden goes to 3rd. Jim Shippy swings at 3-2 pitch and grounds into a 4-6-3 double play... There ain't no Shippy magic this year...

Bottom of the Fourth:

With 1 out, P Rondey Moe lines a hit to left center. Jerry Suazo grounds into a force at 2nd, 4-6. Brian Mitchell beats out an infield hit. Fernando Mexicano grounds a hit to right to load the bases up with 2 outs. Glenn Snowden lines a hit to center and 2 runs score!! 5 to 0, Beavers! That sends rookie P Bob Hill packing. New Pitcher: Ken Moller (26-L) with a 3.77 ERA in 14.1 IP. Carlos Lopez grounds out to short.

Top of the Fifth:
With 1 out, Mario Vasquez hits a home run to right. 5 to 1, Beavers. That gives Vasquez 6 HR on the year. He had 10 total coming into this season.

Top of the Seventh:
New Pitcher: Jon Weekley (27-R). With all the complete games of late and the blowouts, our Bullpen has not gotten much work. With 2 outs, Harvey Turner lines a hit to right center. The Bullpen gets up. Can't waste time with guys that have not pitched in a week... Ralph McKinney grounds a double over the 3rd base bag... PH Eddie Dyer (27-L) grounds another double down the left field line and both runners score... 5 to 3, Beavers. Call to the Bullpen: Vic Kyzer (24-L). He is one who HAS gotten some work lately, but the tying run is at the plate and they have 7 left-handers in their lineup... Jim Holberton lines out to left!

Bottom of the Seventh:

New Pitcher: Rick Iverson (36-L), who made his season debut with a scoreless inning against us yesterday. He was with the Royals the past two years and signed a minor league contract with Sacramento in February. With 1 out, Glenn Snowden hits a home run to left! 6 to 3, Beavers! Our fifth straight game with 6 or more runs! Ties the team record. We had a string of 5 last year. With 2 outs, Dave Risinger draws a walk. Jim Shippy lines a hit to center! Risinger goes to 3rd. Juan Rojas lines a hit to right and Risinger scores and Shippy goes to 3rd! 7 to 3, Beavers! PH A.J. Lee (23-R) grounds a hit to left and Shippy scores! 8 to 3, Beavers! Jerry Suazo lobs a hit to right and the bases are loaded with 2 outs. Brian Mitchell grounds a hit to right and 2 runs score!! 10 to 3, Beavers! Back to back double digit games and our seventh time this year, tying our all time season record on May 3!! That does it for P Iverson. New Pitcher: Duane Rokita (29-R), who was their closer for the past two seasons with 78 SV, but has been displaced this year by ex-Beaver David Fuentes. Rokita has not allowed a run in 7 IP this season. Fernando Mexicano grounds a hit to to right and rookie RF Brent Ray overruns the ball for an error and Suazo scores! 11 to 3, Beavers! Glenn Snowden lines a hit to center and both runners score!! 13 to 3, Beavers! 7 straight reach base after 2 outs! Carlos Lopez pops out to right.
