AL Scoreboard: Ducks 2 at Patriots 7

Ducks starter Lance Davis came into the game having won his last five starts. That streak ended tonight, as the Patriots scored seven runs off of the former Reds pitcher in a 7-2 win. Jeremy Owens, Ray Navarrete and Ryan Radmanovich all homered for the Patriots in the win.

Gary Burnham’s walk-off sacrifice fly was the difference tonight in Bridgeport, as the team recovered from blowing a four run lead to record their second win of the second half. Burnham also hit a three run home run for the Bluefish.

Brady Williams homered in the win for Bridgeport, with Ryan Minor hitting his 15th home run of the year for Lancaster in the loss.

Camden 9 at Newark 2

It seems like every time I update this page, that Dwight Maness hits a home run. Such was the case tonight, as Maness again went deep in the Riversharks 9-2 drubbing of the Bears.

Michael Moore provided the Bears offense tonight, hitting a two run home run. The Bears infield provided the relief pitching, as Jason Dellaero threw two innings for Newark and Jack Santora threw one. Melvin Pizarro also threw an inning, giving up three runs, with one of them being earned.

Neither player allowed a run, and Santora didn’t allow a hit.

Gannon Gone, again: If you blinked, you missed Joe Gannon’s time with the Somerset Patriots. The team released the knuckleballer today after just two starts with the team.

The reasoning behind the release was that Greg Modica was being moved back into the rotation, and Gannon wouldn’t be suited to throw out of the pen as a knuckleballer.

Had somebody told me this before I “welcomed him aboard,” I wouldn’t feel like such an idiot now. Anyway, I’m sure Gannon will resurface somewhere, Bridgeport seems like a likely home.

Bears make two moves: The Newark Bears have acquired INF Jason Dellaero from the Camden Riversharks for the ever popular future considerations. That could range from anything to a player to a box of donuts, we’ll see how that pans out.

I would have thought that Newark could have used more help in the outfield, as opposed to their infield, but Dellaero is a solid player who brings big league time to the club.

Bears fans, for an interview with Dellaero, check out the Camden section of the site or just head on over to my archives.

Also, the team has signed P Melvin Pizarro, a name that might be familiar to those of you who read my update. Pizarro pitched for the Road Warriors a few years ago, and was in Double-A and Triple-A with Seattle before ultimately being released. He’s a pretty decent pitcher, this could be a nice pick-up for the Bears.

Pizzaro is not to be confused with those stupid P’Zones that Tommy Davidson was hawking for Pizza Hut a few years ago. Not that he would be or anything, but you work in references when you can.

Espada Suspended: The Nashua Telegraph reports that Bluefish infielder Angel Espada has been suspended indefinitely by the league. After being ejected from the game for something he said to an umpire, the paper reports that Espada threw his helmet in the direction of home plate, and therefore in the direction of the umpire. Talk about your all-time untimely suspensions, Bridgeport might have to set up a “show up to the ballpark and you can play in the infield” promotion.

News from the Barn: The team has activated P Pedro Diaz. Hopefully, he pitches a lot better than he did earlier this year, because there’s a real easy way to summarize his first half performance in just one word. Awful.

Double Triple Crown?: Don’t be surprised if you see Nashua’a Jimmy Hurst take home a second triple crown. He’s tied for the lead in batting average, and is only a few behind the leaders in both HR and RBI. This guy is probably one of the most overlooked players in the league, and I think he’s got a real shot at taking home his second AL Triple Crown. So why is a guy that talented here long enough to take home two Triple Crown’s? As former teammate Damian Sapp once told me, “He’s the mouth of the south.”

I like Jimmy, but a lot of teams will shy away from him because of his outspoken nature.

10Q Update: Be on the lookout for interviews with Carlos Hernandez, Armando Rios and Paxton Crawford. Granted, I have to work my way through the other two interviews I still have to post, but just know that they’ll be up there sooner or later. – Mike Ashmore
