JOEY GOMES (OF, Joliet Jackhammers, Northern League IND):
7/7 - 7/9: All Star Break for the Jackhammers. They pick it up again tonight versus the Goldeyes for a three game series in Winnipeg.

CHAD FILLINGER - P, Joliet Jackhammers, Northern League - IND:
7/7 - 7/9 All-Star Break for the Jackhammers. Look for Chad in middle relief on Thursday as they resume play in Winnipeg.

LOUIS OTT (DH/INF Detroit Tigers Organization - Lakeland Tigers, A):
7-9: Did not play in Lakeland's 5-1 win over Brevard County. .260 avg.

TOMMY EVERIDGE (1B, Oakland A's Organization - Midland Rockhounds, AA):
7-9: Day off for the Rockhounds.

KONRAD SCHMIDT (C, Arizona Diamondbacks Organization - SouthBend Silver Hawks, A):
7-9: 2 for 4 with a single a double and a K. .259 avg. Recap.

JONNY GOMES (DH, Tampa Bay Rays):
7-9: Inserted as a pinch runner for DH Cliff Floyd in the 9th, but the Rays couldn't hold off the Yankees in the 10th as Abreu hit an RBI double off Balfour. Jonny's average has dipped to .186 but he will have back to back starts against lefties in Cleveland the next few days and hopes to get in a rythym. A little help from the Baseball Gods to steer those long fly balls to the gap is just what he needs right now.

More Rays Notes: Catcher Dioner Navarro and Pitcher Scott Kazmir were named to the 2008 AL All-Star team. Rookie sensation Evan Longoria (3B) is leading the Final Man fan voting (see the 7-7 post below to help Evan get to Yankee Stadium.)

BRANDON MORROW (P, Seattle Mariners):
7-9: Save number 8 for Morrow as the Mariners avoided a sweep with a 6-4 win over Oakland.

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.
