Carvajal drew a walk; everybody drink. Woodard was credited with a hold for his efforts. There’s a rule that needs to be changed at every level… More coverage at the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette and OurSports Central.
Couple things GY – the score was 8-3.
Other interesting tid bits -
1st Pitch Temp: 42 degrees
Last out Temp: 38 degrees
The Beavers were No Hit through 8 innings. Luke Carlin mashed a home run that was a very long foul – but it seemed that the only ones that noticed were the crowd in the stands. The 1st Base Ump called it a home run – when it was clearly foul. I guess you take them where you can get them.
And Salt Lake City is a stacked ball club, there’s a reason they’re 15-1.
PMAC may have had problems in the field last night, BUT in the last 3 games he had 3 extra base hits in 11 PA vs. the rest of the team 2 in 136 PA.

2: Nice to point that out. And, btw, Edmonds don’t have any and he can’t field either.
Looks like the Cubs are showcasing Matt Murton. I wonder where he’ll end up.
Didi…I hope that the price comes down. He might be a nice fit for the Pads…
#1@Rain Delay: I went to the Portland Beaver game last night and a Padre game broke out! Beavers were no-no’d until the 8th inning
Here’s their first hit … a double by Brian Myrow to drive in Chase Headley …
Hey, Rain Delay, that was fun to meet up … I’ll be in touch next time I can head up that way … and hopefully it’ll be warmer … lots warmer! (but there was snow on the ground again this morning in Corvallis … bleh)
#8@LynchMob: Yeah it was a wee bit chilly last night! Yes, next time you come up lets hope it’s a bit warmer, and maybe even catch a SKV v Eugene match up at some point this summer as well. I’m only about a 10-15 minutes from Salem-Keizer.
