Normal schedule resumes shortly. First, we have a few days to work through.

Memphis 7 (STL - 8), Tacoma 9
This seems more normal. Results-wise anyway. RHP Blake Bevan (5.76) gave up five runs on seven hits (HR), two walks, and four Ks in five innings. This is becoming more of a norm for him. LHP Cesar Jimenez (5.70) then pitched an inning and a third, with a couple of runs scoring against him on a hit and a walk. RHP Scott Patterson (0.00), also pitching an inning and a third like the guys before and after him, scored both of Jimenez' runs on two hits and a K, then RHP Josh Lueke (3.14, W) later got the win.
Tacoma scored five runs in the bottom of the eighth because the sequence went walk, home run, walk, home run, home run. Neither Carp nor Liddi was involved in the home run hitting either. Six home runs were hit and only two of them were with a man on. That's a man, not men. So, dingers! CF Ryan Langerhans (HR, 2 R, 1-4, BB, .321), DH Luis Antonio Jimenez (HR, 2-5, .219), RF Johan Limonta (HR, 2 RBI, 1-4, .370), 1B Matt Tuiasosopo (HR, 2 R, 1-3, BB, .227), C Josh Bard (HR, 2 RBI, 1-4, .323), and SS Sean Kazmar (HR, 1-3, .211) all had them. 3B Alex Liddi (R, RBI, SB, .255) had two hits and a walk and LF Mike Carp (.302) had a single and a walk.

Mississippi 8 (ATL -8), Jackson 2
So ends the streak. RHP Jarrett Grube (2.86), for whatever else, was his usual, pitching seven innings and giving up a run on six hits, a couple of wild pitches, two walks, and four Ks. RHP Moises Hernandez (4.91, BS) then started the trouble, giving up a run on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning, and that culminated with RHP Stephen Penney (6.23, L), who gave up six runs on four hits, a wild pitch, and a walk in a third of an inning, facing six batters in the ninth with no outs. LHP Brian Moran (12.71) let one of those score on a hit and two Ks in the ninth, but who can really fault him?
2B Kyle Seager (.310) had two hits leading off. 3B Scott Savastano (2B, 2 RBI, .228) doubled. Three through nine were 2-for-24 with ten Ks.

High Desert 13, Lancaster 9 (HOU - 6)
Everyone pitched three innings in this one. Mostly, that was a good thing. LHP Nick Czyz (7.79) let seven score on nine hits (HR), two walks, and three Ks, and faced seven batters in the fourth without recording an out. The home run did him in, and then it was RHP Austin Hudson (5.21), who let two score on six hits, two walks, and a K. RHP Daniel Cooper (3.80) allowed two hits, threw a wild pitch, and struck out four. He's 4-0!
The good news is that RF James Jones (HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, 1-3, 2 BB, .216) reached three times and had his first home run of the season. Of course, the wind was blowing out, so 2B Anthony Phillips (3B, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, SB, 3-3, BB, .276) also hit his first home run, and was 3-for-3. He has a 1.101 OPS in his last ten games. Who saw this coming? Ever? Other home runs were by more usual suspects of LF Daniel Carroll (HR, SB, A, 1-5, .303) and CF Denny Almonte (HR, 1-5, .285). 3B Mario Martinez (3B, 4 R, .308) added two hits, C Andrew Giobbi (2B, 2 R, 2 RBI, E, .261) had a hit and two walks, and SS Gabriel Noriega (3B, R, 3 RBI, .262) had a triple.

Clinton 1, Peoria 3 (CHC + 3)
Oh it's another one of the series where we're facing these goons again. Get used to the L's, folks. RHP Forrest Snow (4.62, L) wasn't half-bad though, as he pitched seven frames and let three score on seven hits, a wild pitch, a hit batter, three walks, and seven Ks. RHP Steve Kohlscheen (5.02) had a hit and two Ks in the eighth.
LF Kalian Sams (2 SB, .222) had a single and two walks and 1B Matt Browning (.323) had a single and a walk. Sams had a 9/7 K/BB at this point in the season. Right.

Aguirre was rained out. Such is life in the early part of the season.
