Re: Friday, June 8, 2012, Minor-League Updates
Blaze Top of the 7th
Smith grounds out 4-3, Mattair Ks and D'Anna flies to center. 3 up and down quick. Rolling along. Rare game as Billy hasn't stolen a base tonight. His only hit was muffed into a three bagger.
Modesto Bottom 7
Ken is sending in Michael Griffin to replace Doyle who pitched very effectively tonight.
Griffin fans the first batter and hits the second. Scare em death then strike em out
Walks the next two. He's all shook up. Bases loaded
So what to do what to do.
Griffin strikes ou the last two batters thats what.K HitWW KK kind of messy but it got the job done.
6-5 Blaze after 7 complete
Nuts top 8
Froneberg replaces Yacko.
Duran singles to left. Mathews flies out to center.
Barnhart walks. first and second. 1 down.
Christian walks, loaded up.
Darn it! Billy Blazes strikes out swinging, Lohman heats a short lazy fly out in left. No runs
Blaze Bottom 8
McMyne replaces Griffin. Ugh. Just sayin'...not a lot of confidence in Kyle
and the leadoff batter triples into the corner in left, it rattles around as Duran chases it down and there's a man on third.
McMyne coaxes a 6-3 groundout and the runner has to hold. 1 down.
He strikes out the next batter. 2 down.
Now he walks a guy. 1st and 3rd.
WHew! Fly out to Mathews in right. 0 runs. Sorry Kyle, shoulda had more confidence.
Blaze top 9
Nuts change pitchers - Chad Rose comes on.
Bryson Smith, cooling lately, flies out to right.
Mattair grounds out 5-3. D'Anna walks. Dom's had some offense the last few games.
Duran strikes out but gets to first on a passed ball anyway.
Jaren Mathews ends the threat popping out to second
Nuts go for the come from behind Bottom 9 Blaze will try to roast them
Theo Bowe going in to play right in place of Mathews and Brian Pearl comes in for the save.
Not sure why Bowe is sitting anyway. Only hitting .370 with an OBP over .450
Pearl walks the leadoff hitter.
The Brian gets a pop to third, a strikeout and a liner to Mattair at third to win the game.
Blaze Win 6-5
