Steve and Baroness, life is dull without you and the minor leagues
Fresno comes from behind at Colo Springs to win 8-6 with Wald, pinch hitting, and Frandsen getting the key hits. Got runs in 5th thru 8th.
Copeland HR, 2B, 4H
Frandsen 2H, 2RBI
Velez H, BB
Bowker 2H, RBI
Ray pitches 2 innings, just 1 BB, Hinshaw goes 1 with 1H, 1BB, 1K
Velez plays some second and CF, Ciriaco is brought up for infield depth. 6 outfielders seems too many.
Conn. loses 2-1 second day in a row, trying too hard to play like the big club. Alderson goes 8, maybe a career high, giving up a HR in the 7th and also cheap run aided by a Brad Boyer throwing error. 6H, 0 BB, 3K.
Boyer 3H, 1 R, average has soared to 270 after horrific start, batting third.
Pill 2 doubles (18 for the year) and the RBI
San Jose hosts arch rival Stockton Ports and gets battered 16-7. Odle, Whitaker, Quirarte, Mixon and Lively all bad, giving up 24 hits. Whitaker has had 7 excellent outings, 3 bad ones this year.
Posey throws out both stealers who try, Klieshnik an outfield assist, Villalona and Bocock make errors, Angel’s on a throw.
The hitters make a push to come back–
Villalona a 3-run bomb and another H and RBI, hitting 313
Posey a H and RBI, then walked twice
Klieshnik a H, BB, RBI, hitting 3211
Bocock a 2B and RBI
Lormand Dhs, gets a triple and single
Ziegler is backing up first base, Graham has dropped to appropriate level and Ks twice. Noonan’s average down to 242 8/41 with 7Ks last 10 games, still terrible vs lefties.
And those Greenjackets are shut out with 4 hits by Tom Glavine and James Hoover, neither of which sucks. Oseguera in 7 innings gives up 5 hits, 2BB, 7K, 3 runs.
