July Pitchers of the Month (1976)

Veteran right-hander Reece Vaughan has put together a pretty impressive career, including back-to-back 19 win seasons in 1969 and 1970, but with few accolades to show for it, outside of 3 All-Star squad picks and 1 championship ring (with Jacksonville in 1973). But he has now won the Pitcher of the Month honors 8 times in his career, including this just completed month in the SJL.

In the MGL, the honors go to the Brewers Sadahige Kawasaki who had a nearly perfect month and in spite of having an uninspiring win-loss record has certainly gotten himself into the Pitcher of the Year conversation at this stage of the season.

July Rookies of the Month (1976)

Danny Eide of the Houston Cavaliers doesn't profile as a future star in the WPK but the 25-year old starting pitcher had a nice July to take SJL Rookie of the Month honors.

And Obandomania continues in L.A. as Eduardo Obando, right now likely the front-runner for MGL Pitcher of the Year, earns Rookie of the Month honors for the third time this season.

Week 17, August 1-7, 1976

Brewers record: 6-1 (week), 72-35, 1st place, MGL (season).

August 1-2, versus Phoenix: 12-2, 5-4.

The Brewers win game 2 of 3 against the Speed Devils in Denver in blowout fashion. RodRod went 4 for 5, scoring twice and driving in 2 and hit his 2nd HR of the season. Cheol-han Lee (12-1, 3.47) pitched one of his better starts of the season, giving up just 2 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits over 7 1/3rd. And Josh Schaeffer went 3 for 5, scoring 2 runs and hitting his 3rd triple in the victory.

The Brewers complete the sweep of Phoenix with a narrow win in game 3. Steve Green (10-5, 2.56) battled with some early lack of sharpness but got the win, allowing 4 runs (3 earned) on 10 hits over 7 innings pitched. Jason Gottula and Tim Shore were perfect in relief, Shore getting his 14th save. Brett Taranto hit his 23rd double of 1976 and Joe McPhillips hit his 7th HR.

August 3-5, at Brooklyn: 7-1, 6-0, 2-3.

The Brooklyn Aces were the pre-season favorites to win the MGL and are clearly one of the most talented teams in the WPK. And yet, once again this season they seem to be under-achieving.
In game 1 of this 3-game set the visitors got a win off of one of the twin aces of the Aces, Chris Justice, who after getting off to another strong start this season has now fallen to 10-10. The Brewers meanwhile got another great pitching performance from Sekien Hamasaki (11-3, 2.86). Hamasaki lasted 7 innings, giving up 1 run on just 5 hits. The offense was led by Bobby Erbakan, who went 3 for 5 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI and also stole 2 bases to get to 6 on the season. Brett Taranto also chipped in with a 2 for 5, 3 RBI game and hit his 10th triple.

In game 2, Matt Helm (8-2, 2.80) shut down the Aces offense, with a little help from Ben Flynn, who is finally starting to get some good results out of the 'pen. Helm lasted 7 1/3rd, giving up 8 hits. Joe McPhillips went 3 for 5 with 1 run scored in the game and threw out a runner at home plate to preserve the shutout. And Zacarias Martell went 2 for 3, hitting his 16th double and driving in 3 runs.

It took a walk-off sac fly but Brooklyn managed to avoid the sweep by winning game 3, 3-2. Erik Sloan was great for Denver, allowing no runs on just 1 hit (and 3 walks) over his 7 innings pitched. Jason Gottula (2-3, 1.88) took the loss in relief. It was also his first blown save of 1976. Zacarias Martell went 2 for 3 in the loss.

August 6-7, versus San Francisco: 10-5, 9-5.

The Brewers return home to Denver to take on the 4th place San Francisco Velocity.
In game 1, Bobby Erbakan helps lead the offense to the win, as he goes 3 for 5 with a run scored and 2 RBI and hits his 10th double of the season. Sadahige Kawasaki (9-5, 2.19) was not at his best- giving up 5 runs (4 earned) on 9 hits over 8 innings- but he gets the win.

And the week is book-ended with another Cheol-han Lee (13-1, 3.63) victory. In many ways this season is Cheol-han's worst statistically, but he keeps racking up the wins in spite of that. He gives up 5 runs on 8 hits over 6 1/3rd innings in this one, but the offense lifts him to victory. Rich White was the biggest hero, going 3 for 4 with 4 RBI. Josh Schaeffer set things up in the lead-off slot with 2 for 4, 1 walk, 3 runs scored game and also stole his 17th base (with 8 ties CS).

Notes from around the WPK: The El Paso Dawgs (67-40) lead in the SJL is down to 3 1/2 over the recently hot Columbus Whalers (63-43). Milwaukee (61-46) has also been playing well lately and stays in 3rd place, 6 games out.
The Brewers great first week of August has them leading the MGL by 7 games over L.A. (65-42) and by 13 over the fading Brooklyn Aces (59-48).

My boy Helm is putting together a tasty campaign! Sidenote: Dean Martin played the character Matt Helm in at least four movies - of which, the Silencers, is the best of the bunch. IMHO; YMMV.

Yes, on a staff that is perhaps the best in the game, Helm just keeps quietly putting up solid seasons. He doesn't have great stamina and he is quite injury prone, but fortunately his injuries always tend to be short-term and not serious.
I imagine eventually his luck will run out but for now he is a great captain for the team and a valuable back-end-of-the-rotation arm.

I had no idea these books were that old. I'll have to see if this movie is available to stream on Netflix or Amazon prime.

Sting third baseman Villatoro hits for cycle!

Alex Villatoro of the Charlotte Sting is finally getting a chance to start at third base for a full season in the big leagues in 1976 and he is taking full advantage of the opportunity.
Name:  Screenshot (355).jpg

Size:  185.8 KB

The former second round pick (1971) of the Brooklyn Aces has bounced around a bit, having been traded by the Aces to Portland mid-season 1972 only to be released by the Wild Things in May of 1973. Charlotte wisely took a chance on him and signed him to a minor league contract shortly after that and while it has taken some time for the move to pay off, the 26-year old late bloomer has come into his own and is now one of the better hitters in the league.

In the midst of a hot-streak that has lifted him into third in batting average in the MGL and gotten him into the upper echelon of WAR scores thus far, Villatoro had a great game recently as he hit for the cycle against Detroit.

Week 18, August 8-14, 1976

Brewers record: 3-3 (week), 75-38, 1st place, MGL (season).

August 8, versus San Francisco: 1-2.

The Velocity score a pair of runs in the first inning and hold on to make that enough to win the third game in the series and avoid being swept. Tough loss for Steve Green (10-6, 2.42), who gave up 2 runs (unearned) on 7 hits over his 7 innings pitched. Zacarias Martell hit his 17th double of the season and scored the lone Brewer run.

August 9-11, versus Oklahoma City: 3-0, 2-3, 7-3.

The Brewers then host the fifth place Diamond Kings.
In the first game, Sekien Hamasaki (12-3, 2.68) and the bullpen combine to shut out Oklahoma City. Hamasaki went 6 2/3rds, giving up 4 hits, striking out 5 while walking just 1. Tim Shore pitched the 9th for his 15th save. Andrew Kennedy went 2 for 2, hitting his 18th double, and drove in 2 runs.

The Diamond Kings and Brewers battled to a 2-2 tie after 9 innings and then the visitors scored in the top of the 11th and their star closer Ben Bakeman easily retired the Brewers to close out the win. Tough luck for Erik Sloan, who gave up just 2 runs on 7 hits over 8 innings without getting a decision. Walter Hackler (2-1, 3.44) took the loss. Joe Willemse went 3 for 5 in the loss.

Matt Helm (9-2, 2.88) gets another win, lasting 6 innings and giving up 3 runs on 5 hits. Ben Flynn pitches the final 3 innings for the save, his 5th, and sees his ERA improve to 4.76. Brad Tesh went 3 for 4 with 2 runs and 2 RBI to lead the offense. And both Andrew Kennedy and RodRod went 3 for 5 and each hit a double, for Andrew it was his 19th, and for RodRod it was number 20.

August 14, at Charlotte: 10-5(game 1), 0-4(game 2).

After a scheduled day off on Thursday the Brewers get an unscheduled day off Friday when the first game of three against Charlotte gets postponed due to rain.
In the first game of the makeup double header, the Brewers get a big game from Joe McPhillips (who is quietly moving himself back into MVP contention), who went 3 for 4 with 2 runs scored and 4 RBI and hit his 8th homer of the season, which helped propel them to a road win. Joe also swiped his 19th base of the season. Sadahige Kawasaki (10-5, 2.27) got the win, allowing 3 runs on 7 hits over 7 innings pitched. John Weaver pitched the final 2 innings for his 2nd save and has a fine 2.31 ERA. Brad Tesh had another good game, going 3 for 5 and Bobby Erbakan hit his 5th HR, going 2 for 4 and scoring 3 runs.

Nick McDermott, the Sting starter in the night-cap of the double-header, hasn't had a great season, coming into the game with a 2-4 record and a 4.71 ERA. But he was spectacular against the Brewers in this one and gets the complete game, 7-hit shutout. Cheol-han Lee (13-2, 3.62) took the loss, working 8 innings, giving up 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits. Joe McPhillips picked up his 20th stolen base, and that was pretty much it for offensive highlights for our Brewers.

Notes from around the league:
El Paso (70-43) is clinging to a 2 1/2 game over Columbus (67-45) and are 4 games ahead of the red-hot Milwaukee Cadets (66-47).
Even with a less impressive week, the Brewers hold a 7 game lead over L.A. (68-45) while the slumping Brooklyn Aces (62-51) in third place are sitting 13 games off the pace.

Jesus Hernandez joins 300 HR club!

The Los Angeles Spinners great third baseman, Jesus Hernandez, on his way to the WPK Hall of Fame in Dubuque, Iowa, hit his 300th career homer yesterday.

This makes him just the 4th WPK player to reach this mark (the others: Nate Bennett- 381, Jesus Casiano- 311, Jamison Bash- 307). Interestingly, he is the third third-baseman to reach 300 HR's.
In a season in which home runs are at historical lows, the 35-year old Hernandez leads all of the WPK with 14 bombs.

Week 19, August 15-21, 1976

Brewers record: 4-3 (week), 79-41, 1st place, MGL (season)

August 15, at Charlotte: 3-8.

The Brewers drop the third of three against the Sting to lose the series. Steve Green (10-7, 2.65) takes the loss, allowing 5 runs on 6 hits over his 7 innings pitched. Rich White hit his 3rd HR of the season, a 3-run shot in the 3rd inning. And the Joe's- Willemse and McPhillips- each went 2 for 4 in the game. Willemse hit his 10th double and McPhillips his 19th.

August 16-18, versus Baltimore: 4-7, 8-7, 5-4.

Returning to Centennial Stadium to take on the 8th place Lords, the Brewers lose again when the visitors plate 3 runs in the 10th inning to break a 4-4 tie. Sekien Hamsaki got the start for Denver and allowed 4 runs on 8 hits over 7 innings. Jason Gottula (2-4, 2.67) took the loss, giving up 3 runs while recording just a single out. Joe McPhillips had a 2 for 4, 3 RBI day, hitting his 5th triple, and Bobby Erbakan contributed a 3 for 5 performance, scoring twice and hitting his 13th double.

The Brewers bounce back in game 2, narrowly holding off a late surge by the Lords, to claim a one-run victory. Erik Sloan (10-6, 2.81) got the win, in spite of giving up 7 runs on 9 hits in 6 2/3rds innings pitched. The bullpen was great, with Eric Marino getting his 8th hold and Tim Shore his 16th save. Nice game for RodRod at the plate, as he collected 3 hits in 5 at-bats, scoring twice and driving in 3 runs and hitting his 21st double of 1976.

And the home-town heroes get a series victory in a tight contest in the rubber match. Young outfielder Jon Williams led the way offensively, going 3 for 4 with 3 RBI (from the lead-off slot!), hitting the 2nd HR of his fledgling big league career. (He doesn't look like a future star, but I'm really liking this kid so far.) Starter Matt Helm (10-2, 2.96) picks up another win, giving up 3 runs on 9 hits in his 6 innings. Jason Gottula pitched 2 good innings for his 11th hold and Tim Shore got save #17.

August 19-21, at Detroit: 3-5, 7-0, 4-2.

Heading back out on the road again, the Brewers start with 3 games in Detroit against the last place (but always pesky) Falcons.

And they drop the first game behind Sadahige Kawasaki (10-6, 2.40). Kawasaki allowed 4 runs on 8 hits over 7 innings. Both Zacarias Martell and Joe McPhillips went 3 for 4 in the loss. Martell hit his 19th double while McPhillips hit a pair of two-baggers to get to 23 on the season.

The Brewers claim the middle game of the series easily as veteran ace Cheol-han Lee seems to be settling into a nice second half groove. Cheol-han (14-2, 3.41) went the distance, giving up just 6 hits in shutting out Detroit. Brett Taranto went 2 for 4 in the lead-off slot, scoring twice and hitting his 6th HR of the season.

And the Brewers get another series victory by scoring three runs in the final two innings of game 3. Steve Green doesn't get a decision in the start but pitched well, allowing just 1 run on 7 hits in 6 innings. 23-year old John Weaver (4-1, 2.40) pitches 2 innings and picks up the win. Jason Gottula gets the final out and earns his 12th save. The first three hitters in the lineup- Brett Taranto, Rich White, and Bobby Erbakan- each had 2 hits apiece to provide the bulk of the offense. White hit his 23rd double and Erbakan his 1st triple of the season.

Notes from around the league:
The El Paso Dawgs (75-45) cling to a 2 1/2 game lead over the reigning champs, Columbus (72-47). The Milwaukee Cadets (69-51) remain in third place, 6 games back.
The Brewers stretch their lead over L.A. (73-47) slightly to 6 games. The Brooklyn Aces (69-51) are playing great currently, having won 8 in a row, and are now 10 games back in third.

Wiederkehr slapped with 2-game suspension

Looks like one of our budding superstars might be a bit fiery.
(For the record, Wiederkehr falls into the personality class of sparkplug. Not a bad guy, but high energy for sure.)
