Happy Flag Day!
John Webb, Jim Henderson, and Carmen Pignatiello pitched adequately for the Iowa squad, but lost to Omaha 3-1. The only batters to figure out opposing starter Bill Buckner (really) were Ronnie Cedeno (4-4, 2B, 3B) and Micah Hoffpauir and Scott Moore, who had two hits each. But Cedeno also made his sixth error.
Daryle Ward started at DH and had one K in 3 AB.
Chowder for everyone! The JKMCS can roll out the barrel to celebrate their hero going 4-4 with a solo homer. His avg. is up to .393.
The AA squad beat West Tenn 6-3 behind Kevin Hart. Billy Petrick got the save with 1.1 hitless innings.
In the first game of a doubleheader, the highlight was Brian Dopirak's 2-run HR, as the team hung on for a 5-4 win.
The second 7-inning game saw the Brevard County Manatees get their revenge against a series of Cub relievers. Jeff Samardzija pitched three inning, giving up one run on three hits. The offense only managed three hits.
Ryno's team lost 8-6. Jeremy Papelbon's three strong innings in relief gave some hope, along with Matt Camp's 2 for 4 day. Yusuf Carter hit two home runs.
