We are back home to begin a 2 week home stand, the final one of the year, before we finish the regular season with a week on the road. The Los Angeles Angels are here to play a 3 game series. They were swept in 3 games at Seattle over the weekend, so they are coming here a bit embarrassed. We are 8-7 against them on the season and won 2 of 3 the last time they were in Portland, July 29-31. They are 11th in scoring in the PCL with 3.38 runs per game (Portland is down to #6 with 4.19). Spots 4-6 are bunched up together. The Angels are 8th in fewest runs allowed with 4.15 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.13). Our team ERA is now 2.79. No one else is under 3.

Los Angeles Angels (65-78 .455 25 GB in 4th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (90-53 .629 in 1st place in the PCL West)

LA: Bobby McGregor (35-R 8-4 3.39) Gold Glove vs. POR: Angel Gaspar (23-R 11-6 3.39) Rookie

McGregor has won 2 in a row, allowing 2 runs in 8 IP each time. He has only had 14 starts due to injury. We beat him the only time we faced him, scoring 7 runs in 6.2 innings

Gaspar has won his last 6 starts. 4 of them were superb outings, including 2 shutouts, but in two of his wins, he allowed 5 runs.

I am not superstitious, but...

The San Francisco Seals are in town to play a 3 game series over the weekend. The just beat the Padres 2 games at home to move into 2nd place in the PCL West. We are 10-5 against them this season, but lost 2 of 3 the last time they were in the Skydome. They are 9th in the PCL in scoring with 3.82 runs per game (Portland is 5th with 4.22). They are 2nd in fewest runs allowed with 3.58 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.12).

San Francisco Seals (82-64 .562 10 GB in 2nd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (92-54 .630 in 1st place in the PCL West)

SF: Bill Dixon (35-R 10-6 2.78) All-Star vs. POR: Don Panighetti (26-L 12-8 2.74) 2 time All-Star

These two pitchers are 2nd and 3rd in the PCL in ERA. Dixon is their #1 starter. His last start was against us, but he only made it to the 2nd inning before having to leave with an injury. In 4 starts against us, he does not have a decision, but has not had a bad game. We are 2-2 in the games, 3 of which went to extra innings.

Panighetti pitched a shutout against these Seals in San Francisco in his last start, allowing 7 hits and 1 walk with 4 strikeouts.

Top of the Fifth:

With 1 out, Sandy Mojica homers to left... 3 to 1, Seals.

Bottom of the Sixth:

Dennis Webb leads off with a liner to right for a hit. Jeff Schottler doubles down the left field line and Webb scores from 1st! 3 to 2, Seals. Jeff Austin doubles down the right field line to tie the game at 3! That gives him 86 RBI on the year, a new Beaver record! Gordon Saunderson flies out to the wall in left center and Austin tags up and goes to 3rd. They walk Bob Draper intentionally. He steals 2nd! So they walk Omar Flores intentionally. Dave Lesley flies out to right and Austin scores without a throw. 4 to 3, Beavers! PH Woody Griesbach (24-R) strikes out...

Extras!

Top of the Tenth:
They go down in order!

Bottom of the Tenth:
Rollie Ferree, who needs a hit to keep his average from dropping below .400, grounds a single to right! Bob Draper lays down a sacrifice bunt, but beats it out for a hit! Eddie Thomas, does not bunt, but swings away and pops out to shallow center. Why? PH Phil Parker (28-S) the last bat on the bench, squibs one in front of the plate and they get a force at 2nd, 2-4. Ferree goes to 3rd. Larry Sinchak swings at a 3-2 pitch and flies out to left...

Top of the Eleventh:

New Pitcher: Mitch Dowdell (26-L). They go down in order!

Bottom of the Eleventh:

New Pitcher: Gus Hanauer (29-R) with a 1.27 ERA in 71 IP. 46 H and 19 BB for an 0.92 WHIP and only 1 HR allowed. Batters are hitting .182 against him. In 4 innings against him, we have 1 hit, no walks and 4 SO. Paul Bouvet leads off with a line drive over the left field fence and THIS Ball Game Belongs to the Beavers!!!!!

Won - 5 to 4 in 11 innings

We had 10 hits and made no errors
San Francisco had 9 hits and made 1 error

Don Panighetti went 5 innings, allowed 3 runs, 7 hits, 1 home run, 3 walks and struck out 2.

RHP Gus Hanauer (L 6-2) faced 1 batter, who hit a home run.

2B Paul Bouvet had 2 hits with his 9th home run as a Beaver. It ended the game. C Dave Benya went 1 for 1 before getting hurt. C Dennis Webb had 2 hits and a walk, scored a run and had an RBI. CF Jeff Schottler had 2 hits with a double and 2 walks, stole a base, scored a run and had an RBI. 1B Jeff Austin had a double, scored a run and had his 86th RBI of the season, setting a new Beaver high for a season. LF Rollie Ferree had a hit in his only trip to the plate.

Pepe's report on Dave Benya is not good. A sore back that will likely keep him out of action about 3 weeks, which will cut into the post season.

I am not superstitious, but...

We put C Dave Benya on the Disabled List and called up C Tod Schreck (31-R) from Vancouver (AAA). He hit only .258 with a .658 OPS for the Mounties in 159 AB, but threw out 47% of runners attempting to steal.

SF: Jose Troche (27-L 7-11 3.79) vs. POR: Angel Gaspar (23-R 12-6 3.21) Rookie

We are 2-0 against Troche this year, after getting manhandled by him last season.

Gaspar has won his last 7 starts with 3 shutouts, including his last start, which was a 3 hitter and he struck out 10.

Through six innings the game is still scoreless. They only have 2 hits and we only have 3, two of them by Rollie Ferree.

Top of the Eighth:

Bill Giffin leads off with an infield hit. They let P Jose Troche bat and he bunts Giffin over to 2nd. Dan Fortino strikes out! Javy Vasquez grounds one back to the box, but P Angel Gaspar makes a bad throw to 1st for an error and Giffin goes to 3rd. Their best hitter, All-Star Chris Greenwald, is now up...

Marcos Barron grounds one to short but, Dave Lesley makes a bad throw for an error and Vasquez scores... 2 to 0, Seals. 8 games in a row without an error and we make 2 in one inning.... Gary Halbert strikes out.

Bottom of the Eighth:
They bring in a new pitcher after all: Gus Hanauer (29-R), who will face the batter he faced yesterday, Paul Bouvet. No home run this time; he grounds out to 3rd. With 2 outs, PH Omar Flores (21-L) doubles to left center. But Jeff Austin hits one about 2 feet and gets thrown out by the catcher...

P Tom Horn (26-L) is eligible to come off the DL. Do you even remember him? He was 7-5 in 24 starts last year with a 3.14 ERA before needing elbow surgery on August 20. He has not pitched since. All 5 of the guys in our rotation are pitching very well right now and I am a little chicken to put a fellow who has not pitched in over a year right into the thick of it when we are shooting hard for 100 wins (which I want very badly). He has options, so we are shipping him to Vancouver (AAA) and we'll see if he has anything left to maybe make the rotation next year.

San Francisco Seals (83-65 .561 10 GB in 2nd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (93-55 .628 in 1st place in the PCL West)

SF: Brad Simpson (35-R 16-9 2.88) vs. POR: Brian Hagans (26-R 4-3 2.97) Rookie

Simpson is 0-2 in his last 3 starts, but they were all Quality Starts. He has not allowed more than 3 runs in a game since July 16 (11 starts). We are 3-1 against him, but the win was his last outing when he held us to 1 run and 4 hits and no walks in 8 IP.

Hagans lost his last outing, giving up 4 runs in 5 innings.

Lineups: Pos Name (Age-Bats BA-AB-HR-RBI-OPS)

Attendance: 27,614

Top of the First:
Dan Fortino swings at a 3-2 pitch and loops a hit to left. Chris Greenwald grounds into a force at 2nd, 3-6. Tim Roberts strikes out. A wild pitch sends Greenwald to 2nd. Ron Chestnut grounds out to 3rd!

Bottom of the First:
Paul Bouvet grounds out to 3rd. Dennis Webb strikes out. Jeff Schottler grounds out to 2nd...

Top of the Fourth:
Tim Roberts, who struck out in his first at bat of the season, hits a home run to left in his second.... 1 to 0, Seals. Ron Chestnut draws a walk. Javy Vasquez grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4. Stan Ward beats out an infield hit... Chip Carpenter strikes out. Bill Giffin swings at the first pitch and pops out to 3rd.

Bottom of the Fourth:
Jeff Schottler grounds a hit to center. With 2 outs, Bob Draper singles to right and Schottler takes 3rd without a throw. Omar Flores swings at a 3-2 pitch and homers to left center!!! 3 to 1, Beavers!

Top of the Fifth:

With 2 outs, Chris Greenwald singles to center. Tim Roberts takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Ron Chestnut lines a hit to left center and Greenwald heads home.....he beats the throw... 3 to 2, Beavers. Greenwald is hurt, though. With the runners on the move, Javy Vasquez swings at a 3-2 pitch and lines a hit to left and Roberts scores without a throw to tie the game at 3... The Bullpen is up. Stan Ward swings at the first pitch and grounds out to short. Why couldn't someone have done that a little sooner?

Bottom of the Fifth:

With 1 out, Dennis Webb beats out an infield hit. Jeff Schottler lines a hit to right and Webb beats the throw to 3rd. Jeff Austin grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4, and Webb scores. 4 to 3, Beavers. Tony Casarez lines out to center.

Bottom of the Sixth:

Bob Draper leads off and whacks a 2-2 pitch down the right field line for a double. They walk Omar Flores intentionally. Dave Lesley grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4, and Draper goes to 3rd. With P Brian Hagans already at 104 pitches, we pull him down and send up PH Gordon Saunderson (27-L). He lines a hit to right and Draper scores and Lesley beats the throw to 3rd! 5 to 3, Beavers! That sends P Brad Simpson to the showers. New Pitcher: Harlan Martin (25-R) with a 1.43 ERA. Paul Bouvet triples to center and 2 more runs score! 7 to 3, Beavers! Do you remember when Bouvet was hitting a triple almost every game, it seemed? This is his first in September and he only hit 1 in August. Dennis Webb grounds out to 1st, unassisted, and Bouvet holds at 3rd for some reason. Jeff Schottler swings at a 3-2 pitch and strikes out.

Won - 7 to 3

We had 12 hits and made no errors
San Francisco had 8 hits and made no errors

Brian Hagans (W 5-3) went 6 innings, allowed 3 runs, 7 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks and struck out 5. He threw a WP.
LHP Mitch Dowdell (SV 10) went 3 scoreless innings, allowed 1 hit and struck out 3.

Brad Simpson (L 16-10) went 5.1 innings, gave us 7 runs, 10 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk (INT) and struck out 2. He is the first pitcher tagged with 4 losses by the Beavers this season.

2B Paul Bouvet hit a triple and had 2 RBI. CF Jeff Schottler had 2 hits and a walk and scored a run. RF Bob Draper had 2 hits with a double and scored 2 runs. 3B Omar Flores was 3 for 3 with his 6th home run of the season and a walk (INT) and 3 RBI. PH Gordon Saunderson had a hit, scored a run and had an RBI.

The Seals announced that Chris Greenwald just had a bruised knee and would be fine in a day or two.

We are finished with the Seals this year and we won the season series, 12-6. Last year, we split it, 9-9.

Down on the Farm:
In his season debut for Vancouver (AAA), Tom Horn (26-L) pitched 5.2 hitless innings. He did not allow a run, but walked 4 and only struck out 1. Not bad, for someone who has not pitched in over a year!

The Rainiers are in town to play 2 games and finish our season series. They lost 2 of 3 in Los Angeles over the weekend. We are 11-5 against them on the year, but split 4 games with them the last time they were in Portland, August 5-8. They are 5th in the PCL in scoring with 4.25 runs per game (Portland is #6 with 4.21). We have scored 5 fewer runs. They are 12th (last) in fewest runs allowed with 4.74 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.13).

Seattle Rainiers (57-92 .383 37 GB in 6th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (94-55 .631 in 1st place in the PCL West)

SEA: Tom Snodgrass (26-L 3-0 3.28) vs. POR: Frank Martin (27-R 10-7 3.03)

We are 0-2 against Snodgrass. After holding us to 1 unearned run on 5 hits in 8 IP, he went to Oakland for his last start and gave them 7 runs in 3 innings, but escaped with a no decision.

Martin pitched a CG last time out with 3 runs allowed.

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: Roof Closed
Attendance: 22,515

Top of the First:

Paul Blaine swings at a 3-1 pitch and fouls out to 1st. John Haynes walks. Jim Rier grounds into a force at 2nd, 5-4. Mark Fenik doubles to left and Rier stops at 3rd. Randy Hobson grounds a hit to center and both runners score... 2 to 0, Seattle. I would not have minded an intentional walk right there. We seem so liberal in handing them out except when I want them.... Hobson steals 2nd. Terry Singer lines a hit to center and Hobson scores... 3 to 0, Seattle. Bob Dillon lines a hit to left. Okay, Christy, okay! We get the Bullpen up. You happy, now? Oscar Reynoso swings at a 3-2 pitch and grounds out to the pitcher.

Bottom of the First:

Paul Bouvet walks on 4 pitches. He had a rough August (.212), but has really come on in September (.231)... Larry Sinchak grounds out to 1st, unassisted, and Bouvet goes to 2nd. Sinchak is 0 for September... 13 AB. Bouvet steals 3rd. Jeff Schottler swings at a 3-1 pitch and lines a hit to left and Bouvet scores. 3 to 1, Seattle. Since the first of August, Schottler is hitting .322. True, it is mostly singles (1 HR), but a lot better than he was doing early in the season when he hit .181 in April and May. Jeff Austin flies out to left. 2 outs. Woody Griesbach gets beaned. Tony Casarez doubles to left and Schottler scores! 3 to 2, Seattle. Phil Parker flies out to left.

Bottom of the Second:

With 2 outs, Paul Bouvet homers to left to tie the game at 3!! Snodgrass strikes out everyone else in the inning...

Top of the Third:
Mark Fenik leads off with a double to right. He is now 7 for 14 against P Frank Martin with a HR and at least 2 doubles, because he has hit two today.... Randy Hobson grounds out to 3rd. Terry Singer strikes out! Bob Dillon grounds out to short!

Top of the Fourth:
With 1 out, P Tom Snodgrass doubles to center. Paul Blaine doubles to right and Snodgrass scores... 4 to 3, Seattle. Yes, Christy... The Bullpen is up. That is 4 doubles already allowed and 7 hits... John Haynes and Jim Rier both fly out, though.

Meanwhile, P Tom Snodgrass has retired 10 in a row after Bouvet's home run....

Bottom of the Seventh:
After Phil Parker strikes out, Dave Lesley reaches on an error by 3B Terry Singer. PH Eddie Thomas (26-R) doubles to left, Lesley stopping at 3rd. Paul Bouvet is NOT walked as I thought he would be! He lines a hit to center and both runners score!!! 5 to 4, Beavers! That sends P Tom Snodgrass to the showers. New Pitcher: Danny Gilmore (29-R) with a 1.70 ERA in 74 IP. PH Bob Draper (23-L) is sent up for Larry Sinchak. Bouvet steals 2nd. Draper swings at a 3-2 pitch and grounds out to 2nd and Bouvet goes to 3rd. 2 outs. Jeff Schottler grounds out to 3rd.

Top of the Eighth:
New Pitcher: Don Schmidt (27-R). Eddie Thomas stays in to play short and Omar Flores goes in to play 3rd. Terry Singer flares a hit to right... PH Pedro de Jesus (26-L), who ALWAYS seems to get a hit when he pinch-hits, grounds a hit to left... Oscar Reynoso bunts the runners up. PH Miguel Favela (30-R) flies out to center and Singer tags up and heads home, but Jeff Schottler throws him out!!!!

Top of the Ninth:

Bullpen arms are ready... Top of their order. Paul Blaine strikes out! John Haynes strikes out looking!! Jim Rier lines a 1-2 pitch to right and Woody Griesbach runs it down and THIS Ball Game Belongs to the Beavers!!!

Won - 5 to 4

Bottom of the First:

Paul Bouvet grounds a hit to left. Dennis Webb lines a hit to right and Bouvet has to stop at 2nd because Webb hit the ball too hard. Jeff Schottler grounds a hit to right and the bases are loaded with nobody out. Jeff Austin flies out to right and Bouvet beats the throw home. 1 to 0, Beavers! Webb tagged up at 2nd and went to 3rd.

Top of the Second:

With 1 out, Bob Dillon grounds out to short and P Bob Grigg calls Pepe out... New Pitcher: Jorge Reyna (32-R). He strikes out Herb Leavitt.

Top of the Third:

P Alan Merandi leads off with a double to center. Jeff Schottler gambled trying to make the catch and the ball got by him. Paul Blaine lines a hit to right.

Bottom of the Third:
Our 2-3-4 hitters go down 1-2-3....

And we just plain stop hitting....

Top of the Eighth:

On the Hill: Mitch Dowdell (26-L), beginning his second inning of work. There are no fresh arms left in the Pen.... With 1 out, Jim Perkins doubles to center. We walk Terry Singer intentionally. Bob Dillon grounds a hit to left and Perkins heads home....Tony Casarez doe not throw Perkins out, but he does throw his shoulder out.... 3 to 2, Seattle. Woody Griesbach goes in to play left.

New Pitcher: Danny Gilmore (29-R), who's ERA is down to 1.69 now... Paul Bouvet grounds a hit to left. New Pitcher: John King (27-L) with a 2.82 ERA in 115 IP. We let Dennis Webb bat, hoping he will bunt. He does not, preferring to strike out... Jeff Schottler grounds a hit to left. A passed ball by rookie C Herb Leavitt moves the runners up. And Jeff Austin looks at strike three.... you HAVE to swing there with a runner on 3rd and less than two outs!!!! This drives me nuts.... Woody Griesbach draws a walk... That brings P Mitch Dowdell to the plate... We obviously cannot let him hit. PH Rollie Ferree (29-R) is sent up. He grounds out to short....

Bottom of the Ninth:
New Pitcher: Mike Aaberg (24-R), their closer. They did me a big favor by pulling the left-hander... Though we will still lose, now that I jinxed them... Aaberg has 4 SV with a 3.67 ERA in 41.2 IP.

Pepe's report: Bob Grigg has a stiff back that will bother him for a week or so, but should only affect his batting and running and should not bother him pitching too much. Tony Casarez, on the other hand, is out for 6 weeks, at least, which means no post-season for him....

Seattle announced that Mike Aaberg had strained his back and will not pitch again this season, but should be fine in 3 or 4 weeks.

We are done with Seattle for this year and won the season series, 12-6. We won it, 11-7, last year.

Wednesday, September 18, Year II

We placed LF Tony Casarez (20-L) on the Disabled List and recalled RP Barry Chapman (27-R), because our Bullpen is spent right at the moment. Chapman was not all that great in Vancouver (AAA). He had a 3.33 ERA, walking 11 and giving up 3 HR in 27 IP. But he only gave up 16 hits. And he is fairly fresh, which is the main thing...

The San Diego Padres are in town to play 2 games. They just lost 2 in Los Angeles and have lost 7 in a row and 13 of their last 14. They finished August winning 11 of 12 and have started September losing 13 of 15. We are 11-2 against them on the season and won 3 of 4 the last time they were in the Skydome, June 13-16. The Padres are 8th in the PCL in scoring with 3.95 runs per game (Portland is #6 with 4.21). They are 6th in fewest runs allowed with 3.97 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.14).

San Diego Padres (81-70 .536 14 GB in 3rd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (95-56 .629 in 1st place in the PCL West)

SD: Mike Nackley (28-L 13-13 3.23) PCL CY 2 time All-Star vs. POR: Don Panighetti (26-L 12-8 2.81) 2 time All-Star

Nackley, who was the lights out best pitcher in baseball last year, has fallen on hard times of late. He last lost his last 4 starts and allowed at least 4 runs each time. We are 3-0 against him this year, though he did have one really good game against us.

Panighetti had a no decision last time out, allowing 3 runs and 7 hits and 3 BB in 5 IP.

The Oakland Oaks are in town to play a 3 game series over the weekend to close out our home schedule for this season. They just split a pair in Los Angeles. We are 10-2 against them on the season and won 2 of 3 the last time the were in Portland, June 10-12. The Oaks are 11th in scoring in the PCL with 3.43 runs per game (Portland is tied for #4 with 4.24). They are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 3.96 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.13).

Oakland Oaks (65-88 .425 31 GB in 5th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (96-57 .627 in 1st place in the PCL West)

OAK: Tony Jimenez (23-L 3-4 2.61) Rookie vs. POR: Brian Hagans (26-R 5-3 3.05) Rookie

Jimenez does not throw hard (89 MPH), but is deceptive and strikes a lot of batters out. 7.7 per 9 innings, so far. We have never faced him.

Hagans was so-so in his last outing, allowing 3 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings, but got the win.

9: P Frank Martin (26-R .023-43-0-2-.149) 1 for 43 with 26 SO

This has to be the matchup with the two worst hitting pitchers ever! Martin's one hit was a double, so he is twice as good as White!

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: 71 F, Partly Cloudy, with an 18 MPH wind blowing in from left.
Attendance: 26,895

Top of the First:

Bottom of the First:

Paul Bouvet lines a hit to center. He steals 2nd. Dennis Webb lines a hit just over the second baseman. Bouvet only goes to 3rd because he had to wait to make sure it got past the infielder. White balks and Bouvet scores! 1 to 0, Beavers! Jeff Schottler draws a walk. Jeff Austin ground a hit to right and Webb heads home. RF Dick Hoagland throws the ball away for an error and runners are now at 2nd and 3rd. 2 to 0, Beavers! Gordon Saunderson lines a hit to left and both runners score! 4 to 0, Beavers! LF Dick Schoenfeld hurt himself making the throw and Norm Wynne, who was at 1st, goes out to left and Rodrigo Cano (29-S) comes in to play 1st. Bob Draper grounds into a force at 2nd, 4-6, and we finally make an out. Omar Flores lines out to 2nd and they double Draper off at 1st.

Top of the Fourth:

Bottom of the Sixth:

Who would have bet on P Johnny White still being in the game in the sixth inning? After allowing the first 5 batters of the game to reach base, he has settled down and only allowed 1 per inning since. With 1 out, Omar Flores beats out an infield hit. Dave Lesley draws a walk. P Frank Martin, already at 104 pitches is pulled down. PH Woody Griesbach (24-R) lines a hit to left and Flores scores! 5 to 1, Beavers. That sends P Johnny White off to the clubhouse. New Pitcher: Bob Buie (23-K), a rookie, who in only 10 days with the club, is already 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in 11.2 IP. Paul Bouvet pops out to 2nd. 2 outs.

Don Wright doubles to right and we get the Pen back up. Rodrigo Cano grounds a hit to left and Hoagland scores. 5 to 2, Beavers. Norm Wynne grounds one to 2nd and Paul Bouvet boots it... Wright scores. 5 to 3, Beavers. Call to the Bullpen: Jorge Reyna (32-R). Eddie Thomas comes in to play short in a double switch that gains us 2 whole batting spots. PH Dave Russell (28-L) flies out down the right field line. That's the first out. Luis Cid walks on 4 pitches to load the bases. PH Ed Monaghan (34-L), who is 2 for 20 (.100), grounds a hit to right and Cano scores... 5 to 4, Beavers. Avery Shular plunks one down in front of the plate and C Phil Parker gets a rare unassisted putout on a groundball, but cannot get a double play... 2 outs. PH Jackie Roberts (33-R), batting .156 in 77 AB (up from .118 last year), grounds out to the pitcher!

Bottom of the Seventh:

New Pitcher: Jesus Cardenas (25-L), another rookie who has only been on the club 8 days, but is 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA in 7 IP with only 2 hits allowed and 7 SO. Jeff Schottler grounds a hit to center. He steals 2nd. They walk Jeff Austin intentionally. Double steal, anyone? No... Phil Parker grounds into a 6-4-3 double play and Schottler goes to 3rd. Eddie Thomas grounds out to the pitcher.

For the Oaks, we did not get David Russell out at bat. He went 2 for 2 with 2 walks.

Pepe says Bob Grigg's back is no big deal and he ought to be 100% for his next start!

For the season, we drew 1,819,273 fans. Not a great number for a 2 time division winning club, but up from last year's 1,666,706. Boston leads Baseball with 2.8 million. This team had been a loser so long that I think there just are not that many baseball fans left. If we can keep up the winning, they will come...

Monday, September 23, Year II

We are on the road for the final week of the season and start with 3 games in sunny San Diego. They were just swept in three games at Seattle. They won on September 1, but are 2-17 since, though 1 of those 2 wins was against us. We are 12-3 against them on the season and won 2 of 3 the last time we were here, May 31-June 2. The Padres are 8th in scoring in the PCL with 3.89 runs per game (Portland is #5 with 4.25). They are 6th in fewest runs allowed with 4.04 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.12).

Portland Beavers (99-57 .635 in 1st place in the PCL West) at
San Diego Padres (82-74 .526 17 GB in 3rd place in the PCL West)

Bottom of the Second:

With 2 outs, Otis Smith, batting seventh because he can't hit lefties, hits a home run to right... 2 to 0, Padres. It is only his 2nd home run of the season off a lefty. 26 against right-handers.

Bottom of the Third:
P Mike Nackley, batting .056, leads off with a hit to center... Butch Nelson lines a hit to left and we get the Bullpen up. Mark Saylor grounds into a force at 2nd, 1-6. Roger Rojas lines a hit to right and Nackley scores. 3 to 0, Padres. Bob Welch grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4. Mike Fahy flies out to center.

We finally get our second base runner when Woody Griesbach leads off with a triple to left center! Dave Lesley grounds a hit past the shortstop and Griesbach scores. 3 to 1, Padres. Rollie Ferree bunts Lesley to 2nd.... really, Rollie? You bunt him to 2nd with 2 automatic outs on deck? Is that you or one of our coaches being stupid? Phil Parker swings at a 3-2 pitch and strikes out. Don Panighetti grounds a hit to right and Lesley scores. Shut up, Christy....just because it worked does not mean it still wasn't stupid.... Wait! Christy! I'm sorry, I didn't been for YOU to shut up! Come back!.... 3 to 2, Padres. Paul Bouvet lines out to short.

Bottom of the Sixth:

With 1 out, Bob Welch takes a 3-2 pitch for ball 4. Mike Fahy grounds a hit to right and Welch beats the throw to 3rd. We get the Bullpen back up. John Pauley grounds into a 6-4-3 double play!

Phil Parker is pulled down and Gordon Saunderson (27-L) is sent up. He is chosen, in preference to Bob Draper, because he is a fly ball hitter and less likely to ground into a double play...

Friday, September 27, Year II

We are in Oakland to finish the regular season with 3 games over the weekend. They just won 2 of 3 here from Los Angeles. We are 13-2 against them on the season and won 2 of 3 the last time we were in the Coliseum, August 9-11. The Oaks are 11th in the PCL in scoring, 2 runs ahead of the Angels, with 3.42 runs per game (Portland is #5 with 4.25). They are last in HR with 89 and last in BA at .233. They are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 3.97 per game (Portland is #1 3.19). The 14 runs allowed to the Padres ended our hopes of finishing the season with fewer than 500 runs allowed.

Portland Beavers (101-58 .635 in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Oakland Oaks (67-92 .421 34 GB in 5th place in the PCL West)

POR: Bob Grigg (24-R 10-1 2.33) vs. OAK: Bob Stark (28-R 6-4 2.61)

Grigg has not allowed a run in his last 2 starts, but had to leave both with back troubles. He is supposed to be 100% now.

Stark is 0-2 in his last 3 starts. We have only faced him once and he pitched a 5 hit shutout...

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Oakland Coliseum
Weather: 70 F, Clear Skies, with a 12 MPH wind blowing in from center.
Attendance: 20,478

Top of the First:
Paul Bouvet swings at a 3-1 pitch and grounds out to the pitcher. Dennis Webb grounds out to the pitcher, but P Bob Stark apparently hurt himself bending over to pick up the ball and has to leave the game. New Pitcher: Tom Sattler (33-R) with a 3.55 ERA in 12.2 IP. Bob Draper doubles to the wall in right. Jeff Austin lines a hit to right and Draper scores without a throw! 1 to 0, Beavers! Austin steals 2nd. C Don Stokes, at 40, is not much of a defensive catcher anymore. He has only thrown out 17% of runners this year. Gordon Saunderson pops out to shallow left.

Bottom of the First:
Henry Rangel flies out to deep right. Dick Hoagland lines out to short, Dave Lesley making a nice stop. Dave Russell strikes out! 1-2-3!

Top of the Second:

Jeff Schottler grounds a hit to left and Omar Flores beats out an infield hit. Dave Lesley strikes out looking. With P Bob Grigg at the plate, we pull off a double steal. That brings the infield in and when Grigg grounds out to 3rd, the runners have to hold. 2 outs. Paul Bouvet grounds out to short...

Bottom of the Second:
With 1 out, Antonio Mata and Bob Waln hit back-to-back singles. Don Stokes then plates them both with a double to the center field wall. 2 to 1, Oaks. Avery Shular grounds a hit past the shortstop and Stokes beats the throw to the plate... 3 to 1, Oaks. P Tom Sattler lays down a bunt, but it is too hard and we get the force at 2nd, 3-6. Henry Rangel grounds out to short.

Top of the Sixth:
With 1 out, Jeff Schottler grounds a hit to left. Omar Flores grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4. He steals 2nd and goes to 3rd when C Don Stokes throws the ball into center. Dave Lesley doubles off the center field wall and Flores scores! 3 to 2, Oaks. PH Woody Griesbach (24-R) hits a hard ground ball to the left side, but SS Henry Rangel makes a great stop and throws him out at 1st.

Bottom of the Sixth:

New Pitcher: Jorge Reyna (32-R). Woody Griesbach stays in to play left and Bob Draper moves to right. They go down in order with 2 strike outs, including Don Stokes, who had doubled in each of his first two at bats!

Top of the Seventh:
Paul Bouvet beats out an infield hit and they make a pitching change: Bob Buie (23-L) with a 1.42 ERA in 12.2 IP and already 3 wins. Dennis Webb is pulled down so PH Tod Schreck (31-R) can ground into a double play.... We are hoping Bouvet will steal 2nd and prevent that... Bouvet does not steal, but Schreck pops out to short. PH Rollie Ferree (29-R) is sent up. Now Bouvet steals 2nd. Ferree grounds out to 3rd. Jeff Austin, our cleanup hitter, hits one about 8 inches and gets thrown out by the catcher.... Schreck and Ferree will both stay in the game.

Top of the Eighth:

New Pitcher: Rob Daigle (30-L) with a 2.52 ERA in 64.1 IP. PH Eddie Thomas (26-R) flies out to center. Jeff Schottler lines a hit to center. PH Larry Sinchak (31-R) grounds a hit to center and Schottler beats the throw to 3rd! Dave Lesley, the hero of our last game, strikes out... Woody Griesbach grounds out to 3rd...

Bottom of the Eighth:
New Pitcher: Mitch Dowdell (26-L). They go down in order.

Top of the Ninth:

New Pitcher: Dennis Kelly (27-R), their current closer with their regular one, Tomas Cavazos (26-R), injured. Kelly has 6 SV and a 2.65 ERA in 68 IP. Paul Bouvet grounds a hit past the shortstop. Tod Schreck pops out to 2nd. Rollie Ferree flies out to center. Jeff Austin takes a 3-2 pitch for strike three....
