CUP O' JO - July 19


Recapping yesterday's action:

JOEY GOMES (DH, Joliet Jackhammers, Northern League IND):
7/18: Joey was named WJOL Player of the Game going 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs and two runs scored on two singles and home run number seven. The Jackhammers led until the 7th when Gary went up a run. Joliet held them in the 8th and Joey's solo lead-off home run tied things up, but Gary came back with 5 unanswered runs in the 9th to snap a 4 game losing streak. Joey bumped his average 10 points to .263.
Joliet is 3-7 in their last 10 with a 2 game losing streak and 5.5 games back of Fargo.

CHAD FILLINGER - P, Joliet Jackhammers, Northern League - IND:
7/17: Chad relieved the team's closer Thursday 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 with the Gary Railcats in town. Friday was Hogs and Hammers Night... fireworks and Harley's... sounds like a winner. Girl Scouts Sleepover tonight. Something for everyone this weekend in Joliet.

LOUIS OTT (DH/INF Detroit Tigers Organization - Erie Seawolves, AA):
7/18: Did not play in Erie's 3-1 win over Division leading Akron. Erie is 21.5 games back, 4-6 in their last 10 with a 2 game win streak.
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

TOMMY EVERIDGE (1B, Oakland A's Organization - Midland Rockhounds, AA):
7-19: Put it in play 3 times against San Antonio, reached on an error and K'd twice in an 0 for 5 day, but a solid 4-1 win for Midland to prevent a third straight loss. .255 Avg. Recap
Midland is 6-4 in their last 10 with a 1 game win streak and 5 games back of Division Leader, Frisco.

KONRAD SCHMIDT (C, Arizona Diamondbacks Organization - Visalia Oaks, High A): PROMOTED TO CLASS A ADVANCED VISALIA OAKS 7-11-08
7-18: Did not play in Visalia's 7-2 win over Stockton. Visalia is 6-4 in their last 10 with a 2 game win streak and 3 games back of Division leading Modesto.
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. RecapVisalia is 6-4 in their last 10 with a 1 game win streak.

STEPHEN PEARSON (1B, American Assn-Wichita Wingnuts, IND):
7-18: 4 for 6 in an 11 winning win over Sioux City. Pearson had 5 RBIs, on a home run, two doubles and a single in the 14-11 victory pushing his average to .308.
Wichita is 5-5 in their last ten with a 2 game win streak and just 1.5 games behind Sioux Falls, the Northern Division leader.

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 $104.15 with 4 days and 1 minute to go. PTownFan has shamelessly requested the donation of the infamous batting ring "binoculars" to the CampForACure Silent Auction...

JONNY GOMES (DH, Tampa Bay Rays):
Did not play as the Rays ended their 7 game skid with a 2-1 win over Toronto in St. Pete. For awhile it looked like the Rays offensive woes would continue, but utility infielder Ben Zobrist, went yard again. He's got 13 hits all season and 4 of them are home runs so we'll just call him "Dinger" as long a he keeps it going. The win, combined with Boston's loss to the Angels, puts Tampa Bay back on top in the AL East 1/2 game up on the Sox and 5.5 ahead of the Yankees.

BRANDON MORROW (P, Seattle Mariners):
Did not pitch in Seattle's 8-2 thrashing of the Indians on the strength of a grand slam by Raul Ibanez.


DJ GENTILE (OF, Mat-Su Miners (Palmer, AK), Alaska Baseball League, Amateur):
7-18: 0 for 3 with a K in a 5-3 win over the Peninsula Oilers. DJ is leading the team with a .281 avg.

District 35 Champs, Petaluma Valley Little League, won their second game last and advances to the potential Championship game Sunday evening at 7pm in Woodland. They will face the Loser's Bracket winner who will bring a loss into the game and would have to beat Valley twice to win the Championship and advance. The next stop on the Road To Williamsport for the Little League World Series is the Division II tourney in Alameda. 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.
