7-18 CUP O' JO


Recapping yesterday's action:

JOEY GOMES (DH, Joliet Jackhammers, Northern League IND):
7/17: 1 for 4 with a single , a fielder's choice, and a run scored in a long night for Joliet which found them 2 runs short at the end of 12 innings. Joey helped key an 8 run first inning, but Schaumberg came back with 7 in the second. The Jackhammers managed two more runs in the third, but then the bats went cold while the Flyers chipped away, forced extra innings, and came up with two runs close to midnight for the win. Joey's batting .253.

5-5 in their last 10 with a 1 game losing streak.

The Jackhammers All Star 1B, Freddie Thon, had a great June and his contract was purchased by the Chicago White Sox organization.

CHAD FILLINGER - P, Joliet Jackhammers, Northern League - IND:
7/17: Chad relieved the team's closer last night and pitched a 1-2-3 11th inning last night before Schaumberg got to him for 2 hits in the 12th. Joliet was unable to respond in their half of the inning to keep it alive. Chad's record is now 3-1 with a 2.29 ERA.

Jackhammer Chatter: Big weekend Silver Cross Field as the Gary Railcats come to town. Friday is Hogs and Hammers Night... fireworks and Harley's... sounds like a winner. Girl Scouts Sleepover tomorrow night. Something for everyone this weekend in Joliet.

LOUIS OTT (DH/INF Detroit Tigers Organization - Erie Seawolves, AA):
7/17: 0-4 as the left fielder for the Seawolves in their 7-5 win over Akron. Lou hit 'em hard, but couldn't find a gap. Solid with the action in left field. .100 Avg. Recap

Erie is 3-7 in their last 10 with a 1 game win streak.

TOMMY EVERIDGE (1B, Oakland A's Organization - Midland Rockhounds, AA):
7-17: 0 for 3 with a run scored, a walk, and a K in Midland's 2-4 loss to Corpus Christi. .258 Avg. Recap

Midland is 4-6 in their last 10 with a 2 game losing streak.

KONRAD SCHMIDT (C, Arizona Diamondbacks Organization - Visalia Oaks, High A): PROMOTED TO CLASS A ADVANCED VISALIA OAKS 7-11-08
7-17: 1 for 4 as DH with a single, lots of contact and an HBP in a 6-2 win over Stockton. .333 Avg. Recap

Visalia is 6-4 in their last 10 with a 1 game win streak.

STEPHEN PEARSON (1B, American Assn-Wichita Wingnuts, IND):
7-17: 0 for 0 with a sacrifice hit as a pinch hitter in an 11 inning 1-0 shutout of Fort Worth. .292 avg. Wichita is 5-5 in their last ten with a 1 game win streak.

Wingnut Chatter: EBay bidding on the famed jersey worn by the Wingnuts Manager Kash Beaucamp during his sensational and nationally televised temper tantrums last week is now up to $100. with 5 days and 1 hour left. PTownFan has shamelessly requested the donation of the infamous batting ring "binoculars" to the CampForACure Silent Auction...

JONNY GOMES (DH, Tampa Bay Rays):
All Star Break for the Rays. They pick it up again tonight, opening a three game home series with Toronto, followed by 3 more at home with Oakland. The Rays have excelled at home so perhaps fan support will help them reverse the skid and get back on track after a 7 game losing streak. Sunday's loss was especially tough as the Rays relinquished first place in the AL East to the Red Sox.

BRANDON MORROW (P, Seattle Mariners):
All Star Break for the Mariners who play the newly rekindled Indians at home when they pick it up again tonight.

7-13: Brandon bounced back from Saturday's blown save, facing the same two out batter that hit a walk off the night before. This time he entered the game with a one run lead, he struck out Buck for the second out and worked De Jesus to a full count before enticing a fly out to end it and notch his 9th save. The win avoided a sweep by the Royals. ERA now stands at 1.76. Seattle is 4-6 in their last 10 games with a 1 game win streak. Gameday Recap


DJ GENTILE (OF, Mat-Su Miners (Palmer, AK), Alaska Baseball League, Amateur):
7-17: Night off for the Miners.
7-16: 1 for 3 with a single and two fly outs in a 3 hit 0-3 loss to the Goldpanners. DJ is leading the team with a .302 avg. Gotta tell you, finding and deciphering the Mat-Su stats is about a 25 click process so PTownFan isn't always sure she has the latest. Sorry DJ and faithful followers.

District 35 Champs, Petaluma Valley Little League, won their opener last night by a score of 6-5 in the Section I tourney in Woodland. Tonight at 8pm, they play Woodland National Little League, the District 64 Champs as they continue on the Road To Williamsport for the Little League World Series. The winner tonight goes the finals and the loser gets a second crack at the finals through the loser's bracket. The Section I winner goes to the Division II tourney in Alameda for a chance at the Regional Tourney in San Bernardino. Good luck PVLL!

Give PTownFan a shout. It will make her day to know there is someone out there ;-) Don't worry. She doesn't always talk about herself in the third person like The Rickey.
