I am listening to the Dragons game and will try to give a decent PBP and I am following the box scores of the other games and will give updates of those after every half inning or inning.

Jay Bruce gets a 2 out single in the first, but the Dragons go quietly.

Phil Dumatrait is the starter for Chattanooga, he of course is coming off that 7 inning shutout in which he struckout 10 batters. Let's see if he can put together another great start.

Dumatrait threw a scoreless first inning. He retired the first two hitters on a flyout and groundout, walked the third hitter but he was erased on a caught stealing.

Drew Anderson on the Sarasota team is a guy to watch for. He is a switch hitting 2B who is hitting .310/.394/.575 in 87 atbats. He doubled in his first atbat tonight so those numbers are even better now. That gives him nine doubles, 3 triples, and three home runs and a 11 bb/15 k rate in now 88 atbats.

Hernandez grounds into a fielders choice.

Bottom of the 5th will bring 5-6-7 for Clinton against Travis Wood. Wood gets ahead 0-2 with a foul ball and a strike on the corner looking. Fastball outside and a breaking ball in the dirt to even the count at 2-2 before a hanging change up is smacked out of the park for a home run. 7-1 Dragons. Thon has both hits against Wood tonight.
Travis Wood comes back and strikes out Crabtree on 3 straight pitches including a change up for strike 3. Dragons announcer says Wood has the best change up in the league and maybe one of the best change ups you will see at any level.
Change up for the first pitch to the next batter who pops it up to third baseman Eric Eymann.
Wood throws a curveball that induces a popup to the second baseman.
Dragons up 7-1 after 5 innings.

Griffin, Janish and Bruce will come up in the 6th inning for the Dragons. Griffin pops up to the warning track down the RF line.
Janish jumps ahead 2-1 in the count before smacking a double down the line. Janish is just a triple shy of the cycle.
Jay Bruce also jumps ahead in his count 2-0 before fouling off two straight to even the count at 2-2. Bruce takes ball 3 inside, for the full count. The payoff pitch is ball 4 inside and Bruce walks. First and second for BJ Szymanski.
Szymanski steps in left handed and fouls the first pitch down the line into the stands. BJ strikesout, which is the first strikeout of a Dragons hitter all night.
Eric Eymann steps in with two on and falls down 1-2 before striking out looking on a curveball to end the inning.

Wood comes back out for the bottom of the 6th to face 9-1-2.
Wood walks his first batter of the game in the 6th to lead off the inning.
Travis throws a first pitch ball to the next batter. Next pitch is fouled off to even the count at 1-1 with a runner on first. Wood goes full before missing inside and walking the first two batters of the inning. Dragons bullpen is starting to move. Looks to be Zac Stott taking off the jacket to warm up as Wood gets a visit from the pitching coach.
Wood gets ahead 1-2 on the next batter with runners on first and second. And my internet feed died.

Chattanooga: Dumatrait is getting hit tonight, 6 hits, 6 runs, 5 earned in 4 innings. Chattanooga is down 6-1 in the 4th.

Sarasota: up 4-1 in the 6th inning.

Has Janish earned a AA promotion yet? Or does he swap with Rosales?

dougdirt
05-06-2006, 12:21 AM
He doesnt swap with Rosales I dont think. Rosales is still getting on base at a good clip, the hits just arent falling for him right now. Janish could see a jump to AA though.

I thought it was inning 6. The last I heard was "Travis is the first one to get outta the fifth inning this year. (But I though that Zac did game 2) anyway...he said Paul Wilson pitched 7 innings and he thought he was gonna make it outta the sixth. Then ((((insert static here)))
