Headlines: Bears Bring Back Two…Big Name Update…Ask The New Guy Debuts Tomorrow…Halfway to Jiannetti…Game Recaps

Bears Bring Back Two: I promised you one big league pitcher, but the Bears have delivered two.

Newark is bringing back P Jeriome Robertson and P Travis Phelps.

Robertson, the pitcher I was alluding to several days ago, made two starts for the Bears in 2006 before being picked up by the New York Mets.

He has big league time with the Astros and Indians, and went 15-9 for Houston in 2003.

He was in Taiwan before signing with the Bears, and is expected to start against Somerset on Sunday.

Phelps has previously pitched for Camden, and was signed out of Spring Training by the Astros.

He also has big league time with the Devil Rays and Brewers.

Big Name Update: Things are still on pace for this to happen very shortly. I’d stay tuned to this website early next week, if I were you…

Ask The New Guy Debuts Tomorrow: The first installment of “Ask The New Guy” with York P Matt Hirsh will debut tomorrow. What kind of toll does not having a home field take on Hirsh and his teammates?

You’ll get it straight from him tomorrow.

Halfway To Jiannetti: 1B Vito Chiaravolloti had the day off yesterday, but his 14-game hitting streak remains intact.

What might be more surprising is who has the longest on-base streak. It’s none other than Long Island Ducks C Jamie Pogue, who’s reached base in all 15 games he’s played in this season.

In fact, Pogue’s streak spans over two seasons and is currently at 28 games, having started on August 20, 2006.

Nettles Leads Pats To Win: 3B Jeff Nettles went 3-for-3 with his league leading 10th home run and four RBI to lead the Patriots to a 7-5 win over the Road Warriors.

The Road Warriors didn’t strike out a Somerset batter until the eighth inning, when Darwin Soto whiffed Josh Pressley, who homered earlier in the game.

Alan Zinter’s struggles continued, as his 0-for-4 night dropped his average to .056

Camden Wins BASA Battle: The Riversharks beat the Revolution last night, getting seven quality innings out of Anthony Ferrari in the 7-2 victory.

He scattered eight hits and two runs, lowering his ERA to 3.08.

Danny Bautista went 2-for-4 for York, continuing his hot start.

Other BASA Battle Rained Out: The Bluefish and Barnstormers got rained out. They’ll play a doubleheader on June 16th to make up this one.

Ducks Top Bears: Jose Offerman and Edgardo Alfonzo collected two hits and an RBI a piece in the Ducks 5-2 win over the Bears.

Offerman also stole his first base of the season.

Victor Rodriguez went 3-for-4 in the losing effort. – MA
