More coverage at the official web site of the Fort Wayne Wizards… Off-field, center fielder Brad Chalk has been placed on the disabled list (not sure why).
Wow, the hitters have been really bad.
Surprisingly, the defense is about average.
The 18-inning Padres-Reds game Sunday was the sixth home game in Padres’ history which lasted at least 18 innings. Since San Diego entered the major leagues in 1969, no other team has played two at home as often as the Padres. The Padres played 21 innings against the Astros in 1971, 18 vs. the Pirates in 1972, 19 vs. the Pirates in 1979, 20 vs. the Astros in 1980, and 22 innings against the Rockies on April 17 this year.
#3@JP: Things are getting curiouser and curiouser.
I was at the Storm game yesterday, and other than the first inning, Culp looked ok. Nothing along the lines of Peavy or anything like that but, he might have a future as a Triple-A guy.
The lineup was stuck in neutral in the first couple of innings, but then it started to get into gear in the middle innings.
USD playing up the freeway.
Beavers win again. Non prospects Myrow and Ambres star again. 28 year old centerfielder Chip Ambres may indeed get one last shot to stick. He had a 3 run triple tonight.
