Sunday, May 20, Year I

Portland Beavers (22-19 .537 2 GB tied for 2nd place in the PCL West) at
San Diego Padres (18-23 .439 6 GB in 5th place in the PCL West)

POR: Tim Carrol (26-R Major League debut) vs. SD: Octavio Galindo (28-R 0-3 9.00 ERA)

We had better snap our string of 6 games in a row with 3 or fewer runs scored with THIS bum on the mound.

Carrol is making his Major League debut. 3 runs will probably not be enough to win for us today. For Vancouver (AAA), he was 3-2 with a 2.51 ERA. Only 9 walks and 19 SO in 43 IP, so our fielders better be playing on their toes because the ball is going to get hit.

Lineups: Pos Name (Age-Bats BA-AB-HR-RBI-OPS)
PORTLAND
1: RF Dale Ainsworth (26-L .299-154-2-23-.782)

Top of the First:

Dale Ainsworth flies out to center. Perry Templet lines one back to the box and Galindo catches it. Gary Long grounds out to short... Why am I here?

Bottom of the First:
Full count to Hal Baumgardner and he swings and misses to give Tim Carrol a strikeout against the first Major Leaguer he ever faces! Mike Fahy grounds out to 1st, 1-3. Roger Rojas bloops a hit into right. He steals 2nd. Tony Baez grounds out to 3rd!

Top of the Second:
Jeff Austin leads off with a hit and steals 2nd. The catcher's throw is into center, so he ends up on 3rd! But the 3 hitters behind him all strike out... THIS is a BUM, guys!!! What the heck?!

Top of the Third:
Dave Lesley leads off with a hit and P Tim Carrol bunts him up. Dale Ainsworth singles and Perry Templet walks (!!) and the bases are loaded with 1 out. Of course, Gary Long grounds into a 5-4-3 double play... Dang, I just broke my pen...

We will have the second pick in the draft, after the Baltimore Orioles, and it is very clear who we should be taking with that pick: SP Dave Murphy (18-R). He is not a big fellow (5' 11" 175 lbs), but he stands head and shoulders above every other pitcher in the class. Not only does my own statistical analysis rate him as the best, but both our own Dave Dafoe and the Scouting Combine have him listed as the best available starting pitcher.

So, probably he is who Baltimore picks....

If they do, then we will probably take OF Bob Crawford (18-R). He is the best hitter available who can also play some defense. He will be a corner outfielder in the majors and our need for outfielders is not great, but he is clearly the best of the everyday players in this class.

There is a college pitcher, Ron Dreiling (21-L) of Purdue, who looks very good and I may be tempted to take him with the second pick if Dave Murphy is chosen by Baltimore. I am a sucker for guys that throw five different pitches and Dreiling throws six!
Can't go wrong with the Ron Darling, eeeh, Dreiling kid, I'd wager.

Geez, already a full page behind...

Monday, May 21, Year I

We are back home to play the two teams we just faced on the road. First up is the San Francisco Seals for a 3 game series. They won 2 of 3 at home versus Seattle over the weekend and 2 of 3 against us before that. They are 6th in the PCL in scoring with 4.0 runs per game (Portland only dreams of 4 runs a game...the Beavers are 9th with 3.5). The Seals are 4th in fewest runs allowed with 3.7 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.1). And we are now 1st in ERA at 2.93. Houston had been ahead of us most of the season, even though we had allowed fewer runs.

San Francisco Seals (23-19 .548 2 GB tied for 2nd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (23-19 .548 2 GB tied for 2nd place in the PCL West)

SF: Jose Troche (26-L 3-1 1.05) vs. POR: Frank Martin (26-R 4-3 2.54 ERA) Rookie

Oh, the humanity of it all! He's a 6' 7" monster! Must we face him again and so soon? Troche leads the PCL in ERA and his last start was against us and he pitched 7 shutout innings. He allowed 4 hits, no walks and struck out 8.

SF: Bill Dixon (33-R 2-2 2.92) vs. POR: Tom Horn (24-L 1-3 3.52 ERA) Rookie

Dixon is not as good as Jose Troche, but he was good enough to beat us last week. He went 8.2 innings against us and gave us 2 runs on 6 hits and 1 walk and struck out 3.

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: Roof Closed
Attendance: 15,837

Top of the First:
Britt Adams flies out to left. Chris Greenwald bloops a hit into center. 3-2 pitch to Gary Halbert and he takes ball 4. Marcos Barron flies out to left. A passed ball moves the runners up. 3-2 pitch to John Ross and he takes strike 3!!

Bottom of the First:
Dale Ainsworth strikes out. Perry Templet grounds out to the pitcher. Howard McNeal draws a full count walk. He steals 2nd, even though they had a pitchout called. Jeff Austin grounds out to the pitcher.

Bottom of the Fourth:
Perry Templet swings at the first pitch, as he is wont to do, and lines a hit into right center. That is our first hit of the game. He goes to 2nd when P Bill Dixon makes an error on a pickoff attempt. Howard McNeal gets beaned. Jeff Austin singles and Templet heads home, but gets thrown out, as we his wont to do... But my disappointment does not last long as Randy James crushes the next pitch into the left center seats!!! 3 to 0, Beavers! Could have been a Grand Slam, though, if Templet had any brains... He is very smart on all kinds of subjects, but on the base paths, he is a moron...

Bottom of the Eighth:
With 1 out, Jeff Austin reaches on an error by 3B Chris Greenwald. Randy James then smashes his second home run of the game to left!! 5 to 0, Beavers. James has all 5 RBI! That sends Bill Dixon packing.

Won - 5 to 0

First time we have scored 5 or more runs in a game in 10 days.

We had 8 hits and made no errors
San Francisco had 8 hits and made 2 errors

Tom Horn (W 2-3) went 9 shutout innings (CG), allowed 8 hits, 3 walks and struck out 6. He threw 2 WP. 132 pitches.

Bill Dixon (L 2-3) went 7.1 innings, gave us 5 runs (4 earned), 7 hits, 2 home runs, 2 walks (1 INT), 1 HBP and struck out 4. He is the 8th straight starting pitcher to go at least 7 innings against us.

LF Howard McNeal hit a double, drew a walk, stole a base and scored a run. 1B Jeff Austin had a hit, was intentionally walked and scored 2 runs. 3B Randy James hit 2 home runs and had all 5 of our RBI. He now has 5 HR on the season. 2B Jeff Schottler hit a double and looked pretty good in the field. No errors! We will let him play there again sometime.

For the Seals, RF Dave DiMeglio had 3 of their hits with a double.

Wednesday, May 23, Year I

San Francisco Seals (24-20 .545 1 GB tied for 2nd place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (24-20 .545 1 GB tied for 2nd place in the PCL West)

Rubber game for 2nd place (and maybe a share of 1st if the Angels lose).

SF: Henry Vega (25-R 2-1 1.59) vs. POR: Tony Kelley (25-L Major League debut)

Vega is a slacker, but a slacker with a nasty curveball.

Kelley is making his Major League debut today, already the sixth pitcher to start his first Major League game for us this season. I hope your prayers are with him... He was 2-2 with a 1.82 ERA for Vancouver (AAA) with only 3 walks in 24.2 IP. Only an 87 MPH fastball, but a pretty good changeup.

9: P Tony Kelley (25-L) Major League debut

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: Roof Closed
Attendance: 16,546

Top of the First:
Britt Adams grounds out to short. Chris Greenwald lines a hit to center. Gary Halbert flies out to right. Marcos Barron grounds out to 3rd!

Bottom of the First:
Dale Ainsworth grounds out to short. Perry Templet flies out to center. Gary Long flies out to right.

Bottom of the Fourth:
Henry Vega retired the first 11 Beavers to bat before Gary Long finally hit a 2 out double. But Jeff Austin flies out to end the inning.

Bottom of the Fifth:
Howard McNeal leads off with a hit, steals 2nd, goes to 3rd on a ground out and scores on a ground out by Phil Parker. 1 to 0, Beavers!

Top of the Sixth:
Tony Kelley has been more than we could have hoped for through 5 innings! Javy Vasquez leads off with a double and P Henry Vega bunts him over to 3rd. They try a suicide squeeze with Britt Adams at the plate and he pops it up and C Phil Parker catches it and doubles Vasquez off 3rd!!!!

Top of the Seventh:
Chris Greenwald and Gary Halbert lead off with back-to-back doubles to tie the game at 1. Call to the Bullpen: Antoine Redd (31-R). With 1 out Halbert tries to steal 3rd and Phil Parker throws him out! The second runner he has gunned down today!

Top of the Ninth:
Still tied at 1. New Pitcher: Lou Hertzberg (29-L). With 2 outs, Chris Greenwald doubles, but Gary Halbert grounds out to short to end the inning!

Bottom of the Ninth:
New Pitcher: Jesse Adcock (28-L), their closer and our closer from last year. Our 3-4-5 hitters go down 1-2-3....

Extras!

Top of the Tenth:
They go out in order!

Bottom of the Tenth:
Glenn Pearce leads off with a grounder to right for a hit. We send in a pinch-runner for the 39 year old tub o' lard: Manny Jimenez (29-R). We leave C Phil Parker in to bat, anticipating he will bunt. Jimenez steals 2nd! Well, the pitcher's spot is coming up soon and we only have one fellow on the bench who can hit lefties at all, so we leave Parker in anyway, though he cannot hit lefties. I am hoping our manager will bunt... He does not and Parker strikes out. Dave Lesley strikes out. Pinch-hitter: Jeff Schottler (24-R). He grounds a hit up the middle and Jimenez heads home. The throw....the slide...the tag....the call....Safe!!!! And THIS Ball Game Belongs to the Beavers!!!!!

Won - 2 to 1 in 10 innings

We had 6 hits and made no errors
San Francisco had 6 hits and made no errors

Los Angeles lost and we are tied for First Place!

This offense is giving me gray hair. We only had 18 hits in the 3 game series, but still managed to win 2 of 3.

Tony Kelley, in his Major League debut, went 6 innings, allowed 1 run, 5 hits, no walks and struck out 1.
RHP Antoine Redd pitched 2 perfect innings and struck out 3.
LHP Lou Hertzberg (W 2-1) went 2 scoreless innings, allowed 1 hit and struck out 1.

Henry Vega went 8 innings, gave us 1 run, 4 hits, 2 walks (1 INT) and struck out 2. He is the 9th straight starting pitcher to go at least 7 innings against us.
LHP Jesse Adcock (L 2-3) went 1.2 innings, gave us 1 run, 2 hits and struck out 3.

2B Gary Long hit a double. PR Manny Jimenez scored the winning run. SS Dave Lesley hit a double. PH Jeff Schottler had a hit and knocked in the winning run!

For the Seals, 3B Chris Greenwald had 3 hits with 2 doubles and scored their run.

P Terry Melton (26-R) should be ready to make his next start, so we need to send a pitcher back to Vancouver (AAA). Both Tim Carrol (26-R) and Tony Kelley (25-L) did reasonably well in their Major League debuts and it is tough to choose which one to keep. Kelley did a little better and he is a lefty and a year younger, so we will let him make another start and send Carrol to Vancouver. When Kelley gets shelled in his next outing, we will probably have them switch places....

1B Joe Harrison (35-R) and his $1.7 million contract cleared waivers, unfortunately, so we will reinstate him to the active roster.

The San Diego Padres are in town to play 4 games through the weekend. They just lost 2 of 3 in Oakland and before that they lost 2 of 3 to us in San Diego. They are currently 10th in scoring in the PCL with 3.4 runs per game (Portland is 9th with 3.4 also, but we have scored 2 more runs than they have). They are tied for 3rd in most home runs with 43 in 45 games, but 2nd to last in BA (.235) and doubles (58). They are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 3.9 per game (Portland is still #1, but now with 3.2). We also do not lead in ERA anymore.

San Diego Padres (19-26 .422 6 GB in 5th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (25-20 .545 tied for 1st place in the PCL West)

SD: Mike Nackley (26-L 4-5 2.65) vs. POR: Ron Wolf (27-R 5-2 3.70)

Nackley is their Ace. He is currently second in the PCL in strikeouts, but he will lead the League after today's game.... He pitched a CG against us last week in San Diego, but we managed to beat him, 3 to 1.

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: 61 F, Clear Skies, with an 8 MPH wind blowing in from right.
Attendance: 16,424

Top of the First:
Full count to lead off hitter Hal Baumgardner and he swings at the payoff pitch and grounds out to the pitcher. Mike Fahy hits a high lazy fly ball to center for out #2. Roger Rojas bloops a hit to right. Otis Smith flies out to center.

Bottom of the First:
Dale Ainsworth, who is hitting .186 in May, grounds out to 3rd. Jeff Schottler flies out to right. Gary Long grounds out to short.

It is so disheartening to see our pitchers have solid outing after solid outing and NEVER get any runs to support them....
Through five innings, we are still knotted at 0 to 0.

Top of the Sixth:
Hal Baumgardner leads off with a hit, steals 2nd and scores on a hit by Mike Fahy. 1 to 0, Padres.

Lost - 4 to 0

We had 3 hits and made 1 error
San Diego had 10 hits and made no errors

This offense! Sucks!

Ron Wolf (L 5-3) went 5.2 innings, allowed 3 runs (2 earned), 4 hits, 3 walks and struck out 1.
RHP Barry Chapman went 1 scoreless innings, allowed 2 hits and struck out 1.
LHP Jerry Wilhelm went 1.1 scoreless innings, allowed 1 hits, 1 walk and struck out 1.
RHP Don Schmidt went 1 inning, allowed 1 run and 3 hits.

Mike Nackley (W 5-5) went 9 innings (CG), gave us 3 hits, 3 walks and struck out 5. At bat, he drew a walk. He does indeed lead the PCL in strikeouts now. He is the 10th straight starting pitcher to go at least 7 innings against our pathetic hitters. He had the highest Game Score of any starter against us this season: 83.

3B Randy James hit a double. SS Manny Jimenez actually had a hit and drew a walk, but made our error, his first of the season.

For the Padres, 2B Roger Rojas had 3 hits with a double and scored a run.

Friday, May 25, Year I

Today is C Dennis Webb's 25th birthday.

San Diego Padres (20-26 .435 5 GB in 5th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (25-21 .543 tied for 1st place in the PCL West)

SD: Octavio Galindo (28-R 0-4 6.65) vs. POR: Terry Melton (26-R 6-2 1.90)

The only reason Galindo' ERA is 6.65 and not 9.00 is because he faced us last time out and went 8 innings and only gave us 2 earned runs... He is the biggest bum pitcher we have faced this season and if he shuts us down again, we are going to do something very mean and nasty to all of our hitters.... I am not sure what right now, but once I get mad enough, I will think of something...

Melton is pitching his first game in 10 days because of a herniated disc in his back (where else would a herniated disc be, Bub?). His back has been a chronic issue with him (who else would his back be an issue with, Bub?).

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: 60 F, Partly Cloudy, with an 8 MPH wind blowing right to left.
Attendance: 18,850

Top of the First:
Hal Baumgardner swings at the first pitch and grounds out to 2nd. Mike Fahy swings at the first pitch and grounds out to 2nd. Roger Rojas, instructed not to swing at the first pitch, I am sure, swings at the second pitch and grounds out to 2nd. 1-2-3! 4 pitch inning!

Bottom of the First:
Dale Ainsworth loops a hit into right. He steals 2nd. Perry Templet grounds out on a slow roller to short and Ainsworth moves over to 3rd. Randy James blasts a 2-2 pitch over the left field wall!! 2 to 0, Beavers! Jeff Austin flies out to center. Gary Long, cold of late, doubles down the left field line. Jeff Schottler beats out an infield hit. Phil Parker flies out to center.

Top of the Second:
With 1 out, Otis Smith doubles and goes to 3rd on a hit by Lee Dukes. David Shropshire flies out to deep center for what looks like a sure Sacrifice Fly, but Perry Templet guns Otis Smith out at the plate. Unbelievable throw!

Bottom of the Second:
We load the bases up with three 2 out walks to Dale Ainsworth, Perry Templet and Randy James, but Jeff Austin grounds out to short.

Bottom of the Fourth:
We load the bases up with 1 out on a walk by P Terry Melton and singles by Dale Ainsworth and Perry Templet. Randy James, who owns a home run this game, strikes out... 2 down for Jeff Austin. He launches a 1-1 pitch over the left field fence for a Grand Slam!!! 6 to 0, Beavers! That is our first Salami of the season! We had one hit against us. That sends Galindo back to whatever rock he crawled out from under....and saves our hitters from my wrath....for now. New Pitcher: RHP Lee Redden.

Won - 9 to 0

Terry Melton with his 4th shutout of the season! I guess his back feels fine!
First time that we have scored more than 5 runs in over two weeks!

We had 13 hits and made 1 error
The Padres had 4 hits and made no errors

Terry Melton (W 7-2) went 9 shutout innings (CG), allowed 4 hits, no walks and struck out 6. At bat, he drew a walk and scored a run. He has now thrown 23.1 scoreless innings in a row!

Octavio Galindo (L 0-5) went 3.2 innings, gave us 6 runs, 7 hits, 2 home runs, 5 walks and struck out 1.

RF Dale Ainsworth busted out of his slump with a 4 for 4 day! He hit a double, drew a walk, stole 2 bases and scored 3 runs. CF Perry Templet, also in a slump, had 2 hits with a triple, drew a walk (!), scored 2 runs and had 2 RBI. 3B Randy James had two hits with his 6th home run of the season, drew a walk and had 3 RBI. 1B Jeff Austin hit a Grand Slam, his 8th home run of the year. 2B Gary Long, also in a slump, had 2 hits with a double.

San Diego Padres (20-27 .426 6 GB in 5th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (26-21 .553 tied for 1st place in the PCL West)

SD: Javier Reyna (32-R 4-5 2.26) vs. POR: Frank Martin (26-R 4-4 3.29) Rookie

When the Padres score more than 1 run for him, Reyna wins, but they have scored one or fewer runs in 6 of his 10 starts. We have not faced him yet this year.

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: 63 F, Clear Skies, with a 9 MPH wind blowing in from right.
Attendance: 18,988

Top of the First:
Hal Baumgardner lines one back to the box and P Frank Martin catches it! Mike Fahy drives one down the line in left, but Howard McNeal catches it at the base of the wall! Roger Rojas takes a 3-2 pitch in the back. 3-2 pitch to David Shropshire and he lines one down the line in left, but Howard McNeal makes a nice running catch!

Bottom of the First:

Dale Ainsworth lines a hit down the line in left. He steals 2nd on the first pitch to Perry Templet. Templet grounds a slow one to the left side and is thrown out by the shortstop, but Ainsworth moves over to 3rd. Randy James grounds out to short and Ainsworth scores. 1 to 0, Beavers! Jeff Austin beats out an infield hit. Howard McNeal swings at a 3-1 pitch and pops out to short.

Top of the Second:
Otis Smith leads off with a walk and Ernesto Najarro singles, but Lee Dukes grounds into a 5-4-3 double play and Rance Haynes pops out to 2nd!

Bottom of the Third:

P Frank Martin leads off with an infield hit! Dale Ainsworth grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4, and then steals 2nd. Perry Templet doubles over the center fielder's head! 2 to 0, Beavers!

Top of the Fourth:
With 1 out, David Shropshire and Otis Smith single to put runners on the corners. But P Frank Martin gets Ernesto Najarro to fly out to shallow center and he strikes out Lee Dukes!

Won - 2 to 0

P Frank Martin retired the final 9 batters in a row.

Back-to-back shutouts (both 4 hitters)! First time that has happened this season. We also have 3 in our last 5 games. This was our 9th shutout of the season! No other team in Baseball has more than 4! Terry Melton has 4 all by himself!

It always seems my teams end up having good pitching and defense and weak hitting. I do not want it that way, but since I refuse to allow a weak defender to start for me, it turns out that way most of the time.

We had 8 hits and no errors
San Diego had 4 hits and no errors

Frank Martin pitched 9 shutout innings (CG), allowed 4 hits, 2 walks, 1 HBP and struck out 2. At bat, he had a hit.

Javier Reyna (L 4-6) went 8 innings (CG), gave us 2 runs, 8 hits, no walks and struck out 1. For the 7th time in 11 starts, the Padres score 1 or fewer runs for him.

RF Dale Ainsworth had 2 hits, stole 2 bases and scored both of our runs. CF Perry Templet had 2 hits with a double and an RBI.

San Diego Padres (20-28 .417 6 GB in 5th place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (27-21 .563 in 1st place in the PCL West)

SD: Don Polcha (27-R 1-5 4.90) vs. POR: Tom Horn (24-L 2-3 2.72) Rookie

Unlike Javier Reyna (32-R), yesterday's starter for the Padres, Polcha has earned his losses. The League is hitting .316 with an .807 OPS off him so far. I am sure facing us will help his numbers some, though.

We have had 2 straight shutouts and Tom Horn pitched a shutout his last time out. So we are guaranteed of getting shelled this game....

Lineups: Pos Name (Age-Bats BA-AB-HR-RBI-OPS)
SAN DIEGO
1: CF Hal Baumgardner (26-R .190-126-3-11-.584)

Game Start: 1:05 PM
Ballpark: The Skydome
Weather: 59 F, Overcast, with a 9 MPH wind blowing in from right.
Attendance: 19,065

Top of the First:
Hal Baumgardner grounds a hit to left. Ernie McGuire beats out an infield hit. Yep, I called it... Roger Rojas lines one over LF Jeff Schottler's head, but he races back and makes an amazing running catch! Baumgardner tags up and moves to 3rd. Tony Baez strikes out! Mike Fahy drills one 432 feet to center... home run. 3 to 0, Padres. Rance Haynes flies out to the warning track in right and we say, "Thank you, wind."

Bottom of the First:
Perry Templet grounds a hit up the middle. Gary Long grounds into a 1-4-3 double play... Randy James flies out to center.

Top of the Third:
With two outs, Roger Rojas grounds one to 1st, but Jeff Austin boots it. E-3. Tony Baez then homers to left... 5 to 0, Padres. P Tom Horn calls for the trainer.... Is he another wuss? We have to take him out with a pulled muscle in his abdomen. New Pitcher: Tony Kelley (25-L), our current #5 starter, who we will not need to start until late in the week. He gets Mike Fahy to ground out to 2nd to end the inning.

Top of the Fourth:
P Tony Kelley issues back-to-back walks to start the inning. Down 5 to 0, we are leaving him in for a while. With 1 out, P Don Polcha singles to load the bases up. A wild pitch scores a run. 6 to 0, Padres. A walk to Hal Baumgardner loads the bases back up. Ernie McGuire strikes out. 2 outs. Another wild pitch scores another run... 7 to 0, Padres. 3-2 pitch to Roger Rojas and he swings and misses. Kelley actually struck out the side in that inning...

Bottom of the Fourth:
Randy James leads off with a double and Jeff Austin reaches on an error by SS Rance Haynes to put runners at the corners with no outs. But all we get is 1 run when Howard McNeal grounds out. 7 to 1, Padres.

Bottom of the Fifth:
Dave Lesley and PH Gordon Saunderson (26-L) lead off with back-to-back singles. With 1 out, Gary Long singles and the bases are loaded. Randy James draws a walk to force in a run. 7 to 2, Padres. But Jeff Austin grounds into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning.

Bottom of the Sixth:
With 1 out, Jeff Schottler beats out an infield hit. Phil Parker draws a walk. Dave Lesley then blasts a home run to left!! His first of the season! 7 to 5, Padres. That sends Polcha to the showers.

Top of the Seventh:
New Pitcher: Antoine Redd (31-R). He walks lead off batter Hal Baumgardner and gives up back-to-back 1 out singles to Roger Rojas and Tony Baez to load the bases up. But he wiggles out of the jam with a pair of ground balls!

Bottom of the Eighth:
New Pitcher: Rollin Orleans (31-L). Howard McNeal reaches on an error by 3B Mike Fahy and Jeff Schottler singles him to 3rd. With 1 out, Dave Lesley brings McNeal home with a fly ball to left. 7 to 6, Padres. With 2 outs, PH Joe Harrison lines a hit to left and Schottler scores to tie the game! 7 to 7. Perry Templet draws a walk!!! Gary Long then blasts a home run to left!!!! 3 runs, baby!!! 10 to 7, Beavers!!! Orleans is replaced by Danny Gilmore (28-R). Randy James knocks out a hit, but Jeff Austin strikes out to end the fun.

Won - 10 to 7

I never, not in my wildest dreams, thought this team was capable from coming back to win a game after being down 7 to 0!!!
In my wildest dreams, though, there is no baseball....

We had 13 hits and made 1 error
San Diego had 7 hits and made 2 errors

Tom Horn went 2.2 innings, allowed 5 runs (3 earned), 4 hits, 2 home runs, no walks and struck out 2.
RHP Tony Kelley went 2.1 innings, allowed 2 runs, 1 hits, 3 walks and struck out 3. He threw 1 WP. He did not walk a batter in his start and showed excellent control at Vancouver (AAA). We will chalk this up to not being ready to pitch in relief after the injury to Horn.
RHP Barry Chapman pitched 1 perfect inning and struck out 1.
RHP Antoine Redd (W 1-2) pitched 2 scoreless innings (barely), allowed 2 hits and 2 walks and struck out 3.
RHP Don Schmidt (SV 3) pitched a perfect 9th and struck out 1.

Don Polcha went 5.1 innings, gave us 5 runs, 9 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks and struck out 3.
LHP Rollin Orleans (L 0-3) went 0.2 innings, gave us 5 unearned runs, 3 hits, 1 home run and 1 walk.

CF Perry Templet had 2 hits and a walk and scored a run. 2B Gary Long had 2 hits with his 4th home run of the season and had 3 RBI. 3B Randy James had 2 hits with a double and a walk, scored a run and had an RBI. RF Jeff Schottler had 2 hits and scored 2 runs and made a highlight reel catch. SS Dave Lesley went 3 for 3 with his first home run of the year, scored 2 runs and had 4 RBI. PH Gordon Saunderson had a hit. PH Joe Harrison had a hit, scored a run and had an RBI.

For the Padres, 3B Mike Fahy hit a 3 run home run.

Random Fact of Week:
In April, our hitters hit for a very good average (.265), but only scored 3.4 runs per game. In May they are hitting only .239, but are scoring 3.7 runs per game. The difference: 10 HR in 25 G in April, 19 HR in 24 G in May.

Don’t look now but your on pace to win 92-93 games. BA’s prediction of 94 doesn’t seem as bad now. But its the pitching not the offense that is doing it for your Beavs

Tuesday, May 29, Year I

We start a 10 game road trip today that will see us face the last 3 teams in the PCL that we have yet to face. We start with 3 games in Dallas. The Eagles have the best record in the Pacific Coast League. They lead the League in scoring with 5.1 runs per game (Portland is 9th with 3.6). Their offense is not fueled by a hitter friendly ball park, either. They are scoring 4.7 runs at home and 5.6 on the road. They are 9th in home runs, only hitting 1 more than us. But their hitters are tied for the most walks and have struck out the fewest times of anyone in the League. They lead in doubles with 106 and the 2nd best double hitting team has 89. They are on a pace to hit 358, which is astounding. They are also 2nd in SB and lead in triples. They are 3rd in fewest runs allowed with 3.5 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.1, though I have a feeling that number will rise quite a bit after this road trip). Their pitchers have been the toughest to hit in the PCL, with an opponent's BA of .231. We are 2nd at .234. However, they are the only team in the PCL to not throw a shutout yet this season (which only means they are due one or two....).

Portland Beavers (28-21 .571 in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Dallas Eagles (30-18 .625 in 1st place in the PCL East)

POR: Ron Wolf (27-R 5-3 3.66) vs. DAL: Chris Key (32-R 3-3 2.34)

Key is a ground ball pitcher that lets his fielders do the work. Last time out, he won without striking out anyone. Actually, he seems like a little better version of our own Ron Wolf...

Lineups: Pos Name (Age-Bats BA-AB-HR-RBI-OPS)
PORTLAND
1: RF Dale Ainsworth (26-L .295-183-2-23-.759)

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: Arlington Stadium
Weather: 79 F, Partly Cloudy, with a 14 MPH wind blowing out to left.
Attendance: 15,341

Top of the First:
Dale Ainsworth flies out to center. Perry Templet grounds out to short. Jeff Austin doubles down the left field line. Full count to Howard McNeal and he swings and triples to right! 1 to 0, Beavers! Randy James walks. Gary Long doubles to right center, clearing the bases!! 3 to 0, Beavers! Phil Parker pokes a hit to right and Long stops at 3rd. Dave Lesley flies out to right.

Bottom of the First:
Chris Hagerty, the ex-Portland farmhand, swings at a 3-2 pitch and grounds a hit to right. Gill Blair doubles to right center and Hagerty stops at 3rd. Bob Holder lines a hit to left and Hagerty scores. 3 to 1, Beavers. Dick Gottesman flies out to center and Blair tags up and scores. 3 to 2, Beavers. At least we finally got an out... Holder steals 2nd. Dan Kaczmarek grounds out to 2nd and Holder moves over to 3rd. 2 outs. Frank Bott grounds out to short!

Top of the Second:

With 2 outs, Perry Templet doubles, goes to 3rd on a hit by Jeff Austin and scores on a hit by Howard McNeal! 4 to 2, Beavers!

Top of the Fourth:

With 1 out, Dale Ainsworth hits a line drive to center and Chris Hagerty makes a great diving catch but hurts himself and has to come out of the game. Bob Holder moves over to center and Tommy Wilson (29-R) comes in to play left.

Top of the Fifth:
With 1 out, Howard McNeal singles, steals 2nd and goes to 3rd on a bad throw by the catcher and then scores on a ground out by Randy James. 5 to 2, Beavers!

Bottom of the Seventh:
Frank Bott leads off with a double. With 1 out, Edwin Juan singles and Bott goes to 3rd. Call to the Bullpen: Jerry Wilhelm (32-L). PH Jim Bakutis (26-S), who was a Beaver last season and is hitting .333 with 2 HR in 57 AB for the Eagles this season, grounds into a 6-4-3 double play!!!!

Top of the Eighth:

New Pitcher: Bob Hagan (29-R). Gary Long leads off with a single. With 1 out, Dave Lesley singles. We send up PH Glenn Pearce (39-R) because Hagan has a reverse split and has been tougher on lefties this season than righties. Pearce rewards my genius by grounding a double play ball down to 3rd, but we get lucky and Joe Aloe boots it to load the bases up with 1 out. Dale Ainsworth lines a hit to right and everyone moves up a base! 6 to 2, Beavers! Perry Templet pops out to short for the 2nd out. Jeff Austin singles and another run scores! 7 to 2, Beavers! Howard McNeal grounds out to the pitcher to end the inning.

Won - 7 to 2

It is the first time this season we have scored 7 or more runs in back-to-back games!

We had 13 hits and made no errors
Dallas had 9 hits and made 3 errors

It is the 3rd time in the last 4 games that we have had exactly 13 hits.

Ron Wolf (W 6-3) went 6.1 innings, allowed 2 runs, 7 hits, 1 walk and struck out 3.
LHP Jerry Wilhelm (H 3) faced 1 batter and got 2 outs.
RHP Barry Chapman pitched 2 scoreless innings, allowed 2 hits and struck out 2.

Chris Key (L 3-4) went 5 innings, gave us 5 runs, 8 hits, 1 walk and struck out no one.

CF Perry Templet hit a double and scored a run. 1B Jeff Austin had 3 hits with a double, scored a run and had an RBI. LF Howard McNeal had 3 hits with a triple, stole a base, scored 2 runs and had 2 RBI. 2B Gary Long had 2 hits with a double, scored a run and had 2 RBI. SS Dave Lesley had 2 hits and scored a run. Remember when he was under .200? He is at .255 now after hitting .290 in May. And that other issue that I do not want to mention for fear of jinxing him has also ceased to be an issue for a long time.

Dallas announced that CF Chris Hagerty (24-L) would be put on the 15 day DL with a sore wrist.

Dale Ainsworth leads off with a double down the right field line! Perry Templet singles to left and Ainsworth heads home.

Bottom of the Fourth:
Jim Bakutis leads off with a hit. His strong bat is why Dallas was willing to trade for him... With 2 outs, Phil Holliday doubles and Bakutis scores to tie the game at 2, but Holliday tries to go to 3rd on the throw home and we cut it off and nail him! 7-6-5.

Top of the Fifth:
Phil Parker leads off with a walk and steals second. After Dave Lesley becomes strikeout victim #7, P Terry Melton singles to left and Parker heads home, but is thrown out by Jim Bakutis...

Bottom of the Eighth:
Dan Kaczmarek leads off with a single and the Bullpen is scrambled. Tommy Wilson bunts him to 2nd and we walk PH Dick Gottesman (31-L) intentionally. Gill Blair grounds a double play ball to 2nd, by SS Dave Lesley drops the throw and the bases are load with 1 out. E-6. #10 in the season, but first in a while. Call to the Bullpen: Don Schmidt (26-R). Jeff Schottler (24-R) comes in to play left as part of a double switch. Edwin Juan grounds into a force at home, 5-2. Jim Bakutis lines one hard to center, but Perry Templet runs it down!

Top of the Ninth:
New Pitcher: Jose Uria (24-R), their young closer, who has had a rough start this season. 3.94 ERA. Gary Long hits a 1 out single and Dave Lesley gets one with 2 outs. Jeff Schottler (24-R) grounds a hit past the shortstop and Long scores! 3 to 2, Beavers! Dale Ainsworth grounds out to 3rd.

Bottom of the Ninth:
Joe Aloe grounds out to 2nd, but P Don Schmidt doubles over in pain.... We have to take him out... New Pitcher: Antoine Redd (31-R). Bob Holder strikes out looking! 1B Frank Bott (28-R) draws a walk and they send in Jim Hoover (24-R) to run for him. Dan Kaczmarek singles to right and Hoover goes to 3rd. Tommy Wilson grounds out to 3rd and THIS Ball Game Belongs to the Beavers!!

Won - 3 to 2

We had 11 hits and made 1 error
Dallas had 9 hits and made 2 errors

We had double figures in hits for the 3rd straight game, the first time that has happened this season.

RHP Don Schmidt (W 3-0) faced 3 batters and got 3 outs.
RHP Antoine Redd (SV 6) got the final 2 outs after he allowed 1 hit and 1 walk. He struck out 1.

For the Eagles, SS Gill Blair had 3 hits with a triple and an RBI, but got caught stealing twice. C Dan Kaczmarek had 3 hits.

The trainer's report on P Don Schmidt is that mysterious "dead arm" diagnosis again and he says a week's rest is what he needs. Well, we cannot go a week with only four relievers and I do not want to put him on the DL, so we will waive 1B Joe Harrison (35-R) and designate him for assignment again and call someone up from Vancouver (AAA).

Question: Which Division Leader has the largest lead in the Majors?
Answer: The Portland Beavers! 3 games up on the Angels!
We only have the 3rd best record of the 4 leaders, though.

RP Brian Hagans (25-R) was called up from Vancouver (AAA). He had a 3.86 ERA there with 16 BB and 22 SO in 23.1 IP. 0 HR. He has not pitched in the Major Leagues before.

Portland Beavers (30-21 .588 in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Dallas Eagles (30-20 .600 in 1st place in the PCL East)

POR: Frank Martin (26-R 5-4 2.83) Rookie vs. DAL: Bill Avallone (30-R 7-1 3.38)

Avallone is not the most dominant starter in the Majors, but no one gets more out of his talent than he does. He has pitched 3 straight complete games, allowing 1 run in each, including a 4 hitter in Denver. He is one of the best hitting pitchers in the League.

I tried hard to get Wally Wacker from Philadelphia this winter because I liked his name, but they would not have anything to do with it.

P.S. McDevitt is a horrible choice as Pitcher of the Month in the PCL... A closer with a loss is the best pitcher? Terry Melton was 3-0 with a 1.51 ERA and 2 SHO. He walked 1 batter unintentionally.

Friday, June 1, Year I

Well, we have to come here, but I do not have to like it...

We are in Denver to play a 4 game series that will not end until Monday after the weekend, an oddity. The Bears just beat the Rainiers 2 of 3 here. This is the first time we have faced them this season. They are currently 2nd in the PCL in scoring with 4.7 runs per game (Portland is 9th at 3.6). Of course, the high elevation here in Denver has helped their offense. They have scored 5.3 runs per game at home and 3.9 on the road. They are dead last in runs allowed with 4.9 per game (Portland is #1 with 3.1). The Bears have allowed 6.9 runs per game at home and 4.0 on the road.

Portland Beavers (30-22 .577 in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Denver Bears (26-25 .510 5 GB in 4th place in the PCL East)

POR: Tom Horn (24-L 2-3 3.19) Rookie vs. DEN: Jerry Ivester (24-R 3-4 4.10) Rookie

Ivester looks like a good one. Of course, his 4.78 ERA in Mile High Stadium is making his stats not so pretty.

Allen is a good pitcher. He is making his season debut today because of an injury.

Top of the Fourth:

With 1 out, Dave Lesley homers to left to tie the game at 2!

Top of the Sixth:
New Pitcher: Alex Bartkowiak (24-R). He strikes out the side in order...

Bottom of the Sixth:

Tony Jimenez leads off with an infield hit and goes to 2nd on a bunt. Bob Pritchett then singles him home. 3 to 2, Bears. Pritchett ends up on 2nd after the throw was made to the plate. CF Keith Sessions (26-S), who came on as part of a double switch, singles to right and Pritchett scores. 4 to 2, Bears. Luis Castillo singles and Sessions goes to 3rd. Call to the Bullpen: Brian Hagans (25-R), making his Major League debut. A cruel thing to make a pitcher debut in Mile High.... Dennis Webb comes in to catch in a double switch.

We had 8 hits and made 2 errors
Denver had 12 hits and made 1 error

Tony Kelley (L 0-1) went 5.1 innings, allowed 4 runs, 10 hits, 2 walks and struck out no one. This one will not be held against him; he'll get at least one more shot.

Seattle traded P Mike Olson (33-R) to Pittsburgh for a pair of minor leaguers: 3B Alex Ruffin (22-R) and RF Donnie Stransky (24-L).

Olson is 1-3 with a 5.93 ERA in 8 starts and is out of action for the next month. Neither of the minor leaguers is considered a prospect.

This trade only helps Seattle because they cannot pick someone much worse than Olson for their rotation. If Pittsburgh plans on using Olson when he heals, they will not stay in first place for long.

Portland Beavers (31-23 .574 in 1st place in the PCL West) at
Denver Bears (27-26 .509 6 GB in 4th place in the PCL East)

POR: Ron Wolf (27-R 6-3 3.58) vs. DEN: Pete Burks (25-L 4-5 4.95) Rookie

Burks has allowed 9 HR and walked 22 in 43.2 IP. He actually has a 3.60 ERA here in Mile High Stadium and a 6.30 ERA on the road.

9: P Pete Burks (25-R .429-14-0-5-1.038) Rookie

Game Start: 1:05 PM
Ballpark: Mile High Stadium
Weather: 63 F, Partly Cloudy, with a 9 MPH wind blowing in from center.
Attendance: 25,428

Top of the First:
Dale Ainsworth strikes out looking. Dave Lesley grounds out to 3rd. Jeff Austin flies out to center.

Bottom of the First:
Mike Carpenter leads off with an infield hit. Tony Jimenez grounds out to 2nd and Carpenter moves up. Wally Dardick grounds out to short and Carpenter moves over to 3rd. 3-2 pitch to Ivan Gallegas and he doubles down the left field line. 1 to 0, Bears. Rob Douma strikes out.

Top of the Fourth:
Three scoreless innings against a bum.... Dale Ainsworth leads off with an infield hit. We bunt him up to 2nd with Dave Lesley so that he can more easily score on Jeff Austin's triple to center. Tie game! 1 to 1. Howard McNeal flies out to center and Austin scores. 2 to 1, Beavers!

Top of the Fifth:

Glenn Pearce leads off with a walk and Jeff Schottler grounds into a force at 2nd, 6-4. Dave Benya singles to right and P Pete Burks has to leave the game with an injured wing. New Pitcher: Gary Wood (30-R). I was sad to see Burks the Bum leave, until I saw that Wood has allowed 14 hits in 5 IP. 2 of them HR. P Ron Wolf tries to bunt the runners up, but pops out to 1st. We pull off a double steal. Absolutely stupid!!! But no harm, no foul, I guess. Dale Ainsworth walks to load the bases up with 2 outs. Dave Lesley grounds out to short.

Top of the Seventh:

Jeff Schottler leads off with a hit. Dave Benya bunts him over to 2nd. Another stupid move. Now he is in scoring position for the pitcher....who strikes out. They walk Dale Ainsworth intentionally to get to Dave Lesley, who clears the bases with a double down the left field line! 4 to 1, Beavers! Intentional walks are not the smartest idea when you have a pitcher that the League is batting .500 against. Jeff Austin singles to right and Lesley scores! 5 to 1, Beavers! Howard McNeal grounds out to short.

Bottom of the Seventh:
Rob Douma leads off with a triple to center and scores on a fly ball by PH Haruhisa Yoshimura. 5 to 2, Beavers.

Won - 5 to 2

We had 9 hits and made 2 errors
Denver had 5 hits and made no errors

We made an error for the 5th straight game, a season high.

Ron Wolf (W 7-3) went 8 innings, allowed 2 runs, 5 hits, no walks and struck out 2. He balked.
RHP Antoine Redd (SV 7) pitched a perfect 9th and struck out 1.

Pete Burks (L 4-6) went 4.1 innings, gave us 2 runs, 4 hits, 1 walk and struck out 3.

RF Dale Ainsworth had a hit and 2 walks (1 INT) and scored 2 runs. SS Dave Lesley hit a double, scored a run and had 2 RBI and made error #12. 1B Jeff Austin had 2 hits with a triple, scored a run and had 2 RBI.

The word on P Pete Burks is inflammation of the forearm and he is expected to be out the rest of the season.
