TOM O’SHEA’S MINOR LEAGUE REPORT            06-16-09




The Isotopes win a squeaker over Memphis 2-1.


CALVARADO (W, 4-5, 3.45), pitched a masterful “quality start” going 7 innings and giving up one run (earned) on 4 hits and 1 walk while striking out 6.  Both DEBAR (H, 4, 3.45), and Strickland (S, 10, .4.58) pitched 1 inning each of shut out ball allowing no hits as well between them.


PASCUCCI (.205), hit his 8th home run in the 8th inning.  REPKO (.59) continued his hot hitting of late adding his 9th double.   No one had a multi-hit Game.lawdog5



The Lookouts had the day off.




 The 66ers won 10-5 over Lancaster.


WILL OHMAN (0.00) pitched an inning of shutout ball as did PRADO (4.97).  Sandwiched between those two, JOHNSON (W, 5-4), pitched 6.1 innings of forgettable ball allowing 5 runs, all earned, on 9 hits but secured the win nevertheless.


Hitting was a different story as the 66ers really cleaned Lancaster’s clock!  


ROBINSON (.307) and VAN SLYKE (.298), each hit their 9th homers of the year.


GONZALES (.288) both tripled.  


And MATTINGLEY (.304), ROBINSON, MIER (.304), all doubled.


MATTINGLY and LARA (.279),  had 3 hit games (bringing MATTINGLY over .300, finally, this season.  4 players had 2 hit games:  GONZALES, ROBINSON, CASERES (.287), and ORTIZ (.244).  

When the dust cleared and all the prisoners had been taken,  the 66ers banged out 17 hits, including 5 for extra bases, for the night.



The Loons game against South Bend was rained out.

    Any chance that you will go on the road and cover Manny's stint at Inland Empire

    It's hotter than hell down there this time of year! I moved to the Pacific Northwest to get away from the heat having lived most of my life in either the desert of Southern California or the Sacramento Valley.

    But I'd love to go cover Manny. Just don't have the scratch to do it what with the present economy and the fact Ruth spent most of her savings account on a remodel of the house. I shouldn't complain. It's a nice house to be an economic prisoner in if a prisoner one must be. Life could be a lot worse.

    Weather has been nice in So Cal but will heat up next week to at least 80 at game time. Hopefully Manny has not caught the WC from RW or he may not play anyway.

    Here is a good pun for your troubles – I'm not broke I'm just badly bent

    I'm so broke I can't pay attention!
