Tuesday, May 1, 2001

Yesterday was 3B Melvin Rodarte's 32nd birthday.

The San Diego Padres are here to finish up our home stand with a 2 game set. They won 3 of 4 in Los Angeles over the weekend and 5 of their last 6. We lost 2 of 3 to them in San Diego, April 13-15. They are 15th in the PCL in scoring with 3.52 runs per game (Portland is 16th (last) with 3.50). They are 5th in fewest runs allowed with 4.12 per game (Portland is #3 with 3.63). For April, the PCL scored a lot more runs than the NL. The PCL averaged 4.45 runs per game while the NL only averaged 3.79. Together they averaged 4.13, which is close to normal.

San Diego Padres (9-16 .360 6.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (12-12 .500 3 GB in 5th place in the PCL West)

SD: Gordy Albrecht (24-R 1-4 5.67) Rookie vs. POR: Bobby Johnson (22-R 2-2 1.66) Rookie

Albrecht held us to 2 runs and 2 hits and a walk in 6 IP when we faced him in San Diego. He got his only win of the season so far.

Johnson only gave up 1 run in 7 IP at San Diego on April 14, but that was not good enough to get a win.

Lineups: Pos Name (Age-Bats BA-AB-HR-RBI-OPS)
SAN DIEGO
1: 1B Buddy Potts (26-R .200-95-2-8-.647)

Game Start: 7:05 PM
Ballpark: Multnomah County Stadium
Weather: 54 F, Partly Cloudy, with an 8 MPH wind blowing out to center.
Attendance: 11,758

Top of the First:

Bobby Potts grounds out to short. Rick Potter grounds out to 2nd. Dave Bafaro lines a hit to center. He steals 2nd. Brian Mosca grounds out to the pitcher!

Bottom of the First:
Jack Hinckley flies out to left. Bill Wilson swings at the first pitch and grounds out to 2nd. Don Neumann walks on 4 pitches. Glenn Snowden lines out to right...

Top of the Third:

P Bobby Johnson strikes out the side in order!

Top of the Fourth:
Dave Bafaro leads off with a double to left center. Brian Mosca strikes out! Del Hall swings at the first pitch and homers to center... 2 to 0, Padres. Hall's first home run of the season and the first that P Bobby Johnson has allowed in his Major League career...

Bottom of the Fifth:

With 1 out, Dave Risinger singles, but gets caught stealing. PH Jerry Grant (30-L) lines a hit to center. And then I think the Padres were feeling sorry for our lack of hitting ability and made back-to-back 2 base errors to give us a couple of runs and tie the game at 2 all! First, P Bobby Johnson hit a fly ball to right that Pete Reid had bounce off the heel of his glove to put runners at 2nd and 3rd. Then SS Del Hall threw away a ground ball off the bat of Jack Hinckley and both runners scored!

Top of the Sixth:
Rick Potter leads off with a hit and steals 2nd. Then we walk Dave Bafaro intentionally in front of their cleanup hitter.... Insanity! A wild pitch moves the runners up, so we walk Brian Mosca, too. Now the bases are loaded with no outs and two of them were put there on purpose... Utter nonsense! Dell Hall grounds into a force at home, 3-2, for the first out. But Pete Reid lines a hit to right and two runs score... 4 to 2, Padres and the Pen is up. But the next two make outs.

Top of the Eighth:

New Pitcher: Dick Register (27-L). Dave Bafaro grounds a hit to left. Brian Mosca doubles over the 1st base bag. Del Hall strikes out looking. Pete Reid flies out to left and Bafaro scores without a throw. 5 to 2, Padres. Call to the Bullpen: Jeff Gleason (24-R). Joe Moyers grounds out to short.

Bottom of the Eighth:

Bill Wilson grounds a hit to right. P Gordy Albrecht's day is done. New Pitcher: Ken Baltz (25-R). Don Neumann lines a hit to right. Glenn Snowden walks on 4 pitches to load them up with no outs. Shannon Kuchta grounds into a force at home, 6-2. Doug Dietz fouls out to the left side, the shortstop making the catch... 2 outs. Dave Risinger flies out to left.... We are pitiful...

Top of the Ninth:

With 2 outs, Buddy Potts lines a ball into the left field seats... 6 to 2, Padres.

Lost - 6 to 2

We had 8 hits and made no errors
San Diego had 9 hits and made 2 errors

Bobby Johnson (L 2-3) went 7 innings, allowed 4 runs, 6 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks (2 INT) and struck out 9. He threw a WP. At bat, he reached on an error and scored a run.

For the Padres, CF Dave Bafaro went 3 for 3 with a double and a walk (INT), stole a base and scored 3 runs. RF Pete Reid had a hit and 3 RBI.

The Padres announced that 2B Norman Darcy had sprained his thumb. Combined with his already sprained knee, he was place on the DL.

San Diego Padres (10-16 .385 6.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Portland Beavers (12-13 .480 4 GB in 5th place in the PCL West)

SD: Tony Vargas (27-R 1-2 4.85) vs. POR: Ricardo Gil (22-R 2-3 3.86) Rookie

We have not faced Vargas before, but I am sure he has be looking forward to the opportunity... He got his 1st win of the season last time out, beating front runner Los Angeles with 3 runs allowed in 8 IP.

Evoy has a 2.03 WHIP and has a .959 OPS against him... We might get 3 runs today!

SP Ricardo Gil was placed on the Disabled List and SP Jeff Frith (24-R) was called up from Vancouver (A). He was 2-1 with a 2.12 ERA in 7 starts for the Mounties.

We also made a trade.

Trade #12:
3B Rick Roeger (24-L) to Cincinnati for C Jim Shippy (30-R).

Roeger is a decent fielder at several positions, but not much of a hitter. He was batting .233/.278/.256 in 90 AB with 0 HR and 12 RBI and 3 SB for Vancouver (A). Shippy is nothing much, but he is probably an upgrade over Craig Petitto....probably. He hit .214/.279/.250 in 56 AB with 0 HR and 7 RBI for Cincinnati. He at least has not allowed a passed ball and Petitto already has 4.

C Marcell Amici (31-R) has been sent back to Vancouver (A).

By the way, we are now in last place...

Portland Beavers (13-18 .419 7.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Houston Astros (11-20 .355 10 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL East)

POR: John Cox (28-L Season debut) vs. HOU: Tommy Kessell (32-R 3-3 2.06)

Cox was 2-1 with a 4.15 ERA in 4 starts for Vancouver (A).

Kessell is their #1 starter. He has lost 2 in a row, but only allowed 2 runs in 7 IP in his last one.

Bottom of the First:

12 up, 12 down...

Top of the Fifth:
With 2 outs, Bill Wilson beats out and infield hit!!!! We have a base runner! But not Wilson, because he has hurt himself.... Pinch-Runner: Ricky Duarte (28-R), who will stay in the game to retrieve balls from the right field corner....

Bottom of the Fifth:
With 1 out, Eli Henderson draws a walk. He steals 2nd and C Jim Shippy throws the ball into center and Henderson goes to 3rd... Maybe Shippy is NOT an upgrade on Petitto... Oscar Trejo lines a hit to center and Henderson scores. 3 to 0, Angels.

Bottom of the Sixth:

With 1 out, Reid Phillips and Javier Rodriguez both single and we get the Bullpen up. P Mike Bennett swings away, but grounds out to 1st, 3-1, and the runners move up just like as if he had bunted.

OF Bill Wilson (28-R) was put on the Disabled List and C Marcell Amici (31-R) was recalled. He went 5 for 8 with a double and a home run since being sent down. We are going to put him in the Beaver starting lineup and see what he does.

Portland Beavers (15-21 .417 9.5 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Los Angeles Angels (25-12 .676 in 1st place in the PCL West)

POR: John Cox (28-L 1-0 2.45) vs. LA: Sam Henderson (27-R 2-3 3.45)

Cox went 7.1 innings in his Beaver debut and only allowed 2 runs and got a win, but he walked 6 and only struck out 1.

We faced Henderson on Opening Day and lost, scoring only 1 run in 8 innings, though he did not get the decision. But he has fallen on hard times since then and is now only their #3 starter. He has lost 3 of his last 4 starts and had a no decision in the most recent one, but only went 1 inning and allowed 6 runs.

We are in Sacramento to finish up our two week road trip with two games in California's capital. We split a pair of games with the Solons in Portland, April 24-25. They were swept in 3 games here by San Francisco over the weekend and have lost 6 of their last 7. They are 13th in scoring in the PCL with 4.18 runs per game (Portland is still last with 3.59). That 4.18 per game average would put the Solons 6th in the NL, where the ERA is only 3.44 so far this year. The PCL league ERA is 4.09. They are 7th in fewest runs allowed with 4.50 per game (Portland is 6th with 4.22).

Portland Beavers (15-22 .405 10 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Sacramento Solons (20-18 .526 5.5 GB in 3rd place in the PCL West)

POR: Steve Muir (26-R 2-3 4.18) vs. SAC: Juan Sanchez (26-R 3-4 6.35)

Muir had a good outing last time out with 2 runs allowed in 7.1 IP, after getting shelled twice in a row, but he nonetheless lost his 3rd straight start.

We scored 5 runs in 5 innings off Sanchez in Portland and beat him.

Portland Beavers (16-22 .421 10 GB in 8th (last) place in the PCL West) at
Sacramento Solons (20-19 .513 6.5 GB in 3rd place in the PCL West)

POR: Bobby Johnson (22-R 3-3 3.27) Rookie vs. SAC: Ellis Collier (27-R 4-4 4.58)

Johnson was shelled for the first time in his Major League career last time out, giving up 7 runs in 3.2 IP. He escaped the loss, however, since we scored 9 runs and won the game.

Collier is their #1 starter. We have not faced him before. He has 3 straight starts with at least 8 IP, but he lost last time out, only allowing 2 runs and 5 hits and striking out a season high 9.

[…] Evoy has a 2.03 WHIP and has a .959 OPS against him... We might get 3 runs today!

[…] Lost - 8 to 2

We did NOT score 3 runs...
6 losses in a row...

We had 3 whole hits and made no errors
Well, they DID put the 3 in the H column… and I'm sure they're gonna whack him the next time around. Maybe.

Maybe.

That Shannon Kuchta kid? Is he the real deal? Or one of those .250 batters with a touch of pop that won't get you over .500 no matter how many of those you have on the roster?
