Hi everyone, I just got a message from my provider that said they restarted a server, or something like that, so I thought I'd try it... but it's very early in the morning, so all I am going to do right now is re-post what I wrote in the Comments last night. But, the good news is that it appears to be working, so there should be a return to normalcy!!
I'm still having some sort of major problems with FrontPage and being
able to publish anywhere, and I don't know why. I've sent a few e-mails
to try to figure it out, but this is ridiculous. Maybe I should have
paid my web hosting bill!?
Anyway, a couple of quick Tuesday Night notes:
Parmelee plays hero! Chris Parmelee hit a two run home run in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Snappers a win. Parmelee went 3-5 in the game with his 4th double, 4th homer and seven RBI. Joe Benson and Steve Singleton were also 3-5. Danny Lehman went 2-4 with a double. In the ninth, Garrett Olson, who was 1-2 with a walk, was ejected, as were catcher Greg Yersich and manager Nelson Prada. Mike McCardell started and gave up three earned runs on seven hits (2 HR). He walked none and struck out nine in seven innings. Loek Van Mil gave up a run in his inning. Matt Williams got a blown save, but also got a Win by going three innigns.
Ft. Myers lost to Clearwater 8-5. Edward Ovalle went 3-4 with a walk and two stolen bases. Johnny Woodard went 2-5 with his third homer and two RBI. Brian Dinkelman went 1-2 with two walks, two RBI, his seventh double, he was hit by a pitch and stole his first base. Rene Tosoni went 1-3 with two walks. Jeff Manship started and lasted just four innings. He gave up five runs (2 earned) on six hits and two walks. He struck out five. Danny Vais got the win by throwing three shutout innings. Anthony Slama got his second save with two perfect innings in which he struck out three.
New Britain lost to New Hampshire 4-2. The Rockcats managed just six hits. #3 hitter, Luke Hughes, hit his first homer. #4 hitter, Brock Peterson, hit his second homer. Trevor Plouffe, who raised his average to .308 this weekend, went 0-4 with three Ks, and is back down to .235. Ryan Mullins falls to 1-1 with a 1.59 ERA. The tall lefty went six innings and gave up two runs on six hits. He walked one and struck out two. Kyle Aselton pitched a scoreless relief inning. Ben Julianel gave up two unearned runs in his inning.
Rochester had a double header against Richmond. They won game one 4-3 when Howie Clark hit a bases loaded single in the 8th. Clark was 2-4 with his first double as well. Jason Pridie went 2-4 with his second triple. Philip Humber started and gave up three runs (2 earned) on four hits. He walked four and struck out four. Long-time reader Jason Bain was at the game and said he was impressive for two innings, then was about done. Couple that with several reports of Humber being all-effort and the reliever discussion certainly comes into play. Mariano Gomez came in and went 3.1 innings. He was perfect and struck out three. He threw just 37 pitches, and 28 of them were strikes. Bobby Korecky got the win with a scoreless inning. Of course, he gave up two hits and walked one.
The Red Wings were the visiting team, at home, in game two. It was a make up from a rained out game in Richmond last week. Casey Daigle made the spot start and
OK, I am now realizing that there must be a word limit in Comments because I wrote a bunch more than that. The rest was apparently lost, so let me briefly continue, but understand that it is early and an inability to sleep is why I am even up...
Casey Daigle went 2.2 innings in his spot start and gave up two earned runs on five hits. Ricky Barrett gave up a run in his inning. Heath Totten went 1.1 innings and gave up an unearned run before Carmen Cali went a scoreless inning. The Red Wings tried a comeback, but it fell short in the seventh and they lost 4-3. Darnell McDonald hit a homer in the game, his first day back from injury. Brian Buscher and Howie Clark each had two hits. Matt Macri had a two run double.
And now on to the Twins. They lost again last night after leading 4-1 in the 8th thanks to a Justin Morneau homer, his fourth. Joe Mauer was 2-4 with his third double and two RBI. Craig Monroe, in his return to Detroit went 2-4 with an RBI single to cut the score to 6-5 in the 9th inning. Just a few thoughts on the Twins:
OK, I'm going back to bed, but wanted to give you something today. Have a great day, and hopefully all my computer problems are solved and there will be a new update tonight!
