Brian Myrow: 1-for-4, BB
Chip Ambres (CF): 2-for-3, BB

Brian Meehan at the Portland Oregonian has written a nice article on Myrow’s pursuit of the big-league dream (h/t Rain Delay), which has included a stop in Korea, among many other places. On his time in Korea:

They want to make their baseball look as good as possible and to do that they have to make it look like Americans are not killing the league. So the more success you had, the bigger the strike zone gets. I would tell the umpire I want the same strike zone as the guy hitting then and they would just laugh.

Good read about a good hitter.

Double-AFrisco 12, San Antonio 10

Chad Huffman: 4-for-5, 2B
Kyle Blanks: 2-for-5, 3B
Drew Macias (DH): 2-for-5
Craig Cooper: 3-for-5, 3B
Jose Lobaton: 0-for-1
Jonathan Ellis: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 1 SO

The Missions almost made a terrific comeback in this one. They were down, 11-1, after two innings. San Antonio scored three in the ninth and had the tying run up with one out but ran out of steam. Always good to see a team fight till the end.

High-AInland Empire 8, Lake Elsinore 7

Cedric Hunter: 0-for-5
Eric Sogard (DH): 2-for-3, 2 BB
Mitch Canham: 2-for-3, 2B, 2 BB
Rayner Contreras: 0-for-4, BB, E
Cory Luebke: 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 6 SO (10 GO)


The Wizards didn’t play on Thursday. Kellen Kulbacki has been promoted to Lake Elsinore.

  1. And Sogard just keeps on hitting.

  2. Kyle Blanks eventually has to start hitting for power, right? I mean, he weighs like 280 pounds…
