Bases are loaded and Casey's at bat, playin' it play by play.
Here are some photos from the Vancouver Canadians home opener against Spokane Monday night.
The Vancouver Canadians gather along the third base line for the lineup introduction.
The affiliates took three out of four Monday night. I got to witness the lone loss in person!
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again, you might say he found a key for every door.
Today was a new day for New Hampshire, they forgot about giving up 16 runs yesterday and their bats put together 22 runs. Marcus Stroman had another fantastic start, and Mauro Gomez hit another home run.
The people of the town are strange, and they're proud of where they came.
Thad Weber pitched seven no-hit innings and Buffalo went on to one hit Pawtucket. It was bad news everywhere else. Sean Nolin was hit by a batted ball in the first inning and the relievers were hit all over the park. Lansing had only two hits and lost. Saturday was the FSL all-star game. Many D Jays took part. Vancouver ouhit Tri-City 10-4 but lost.
So R.A., what you have to do...
Hits were scarce on Friday. The Bisons were one hit in game one of a doubleheader. They were two hit in the nightcap until the sixth inning, but then they broke out with seven runs. They finished with eight hits and a second loss. New Hampshire had five hits and lost. Lansing had five hits too but one of them was a three run home run by Emilio Guerrero. Vancouver had four hits, scored nine runs, and won.
Ricky Romero pitched well, six shutout innings. Roberto Osuna also pitched well. For some reason Claudio Vargas was called on to close out game 2 of the Bisons doubleheader and he certainly did nothing of the kind.
Then the door was open and the wind appeared, the candles blew then disappeared.
Only two affiliates in action tonight as the weather that knocked out the Jays game in Chicago last night seems to have taken with it some more victims further east. Buffalo and New Hampshire were out of action. Both affiliates that did play won tonight as Dunedin hit their way to victory down in Florida, while Lansing won on the back of some strong pitching.
Finally Gregor Chisholm gets the goods.
Earlier today we were wondering when the Blue Jays would announce who they had selected. I heard they announced they had signed 16 players so I went to the official site and clicked on the press release. Here is the full text of the release:
The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have signed 16 of the 40 players selected from the 2013 First Year Player Draft and five from the top 10 rounds.
As you can see, the press release left out a few details. However Gregor has delivered.
Well, I hear it's fine if you got the time and the ten to get yourself in.
Tonight Fred McGriff happen to take batting practice at the Lugnuts game, and Kevin Patterson might have picked up a few tips leading to a monster night. Deck McGuire continued to see his stock fall nearly 3 years after his draft .Taylor Cole had an outstanding start for Lansing as well, in a night where the farm went 3-1!
I was born in a house with the television always on, guess I grew up too fast and I forgot my name.
