Three more homers tonight. James Jones, Vinnie Catricala, Matt Cerione. Mix in 6.0 innings of three-run baseball from right-hander Tom Wilhelmsen and 3.0 scoreless relief innings from Daniel Cooper and you have…
…six-straight wins. This team is extremely fun to watch right now, and a big crowd at Alliant Energy Field saw that tonight. Hopefully they’re back six more times this homestand.
The final full month of the 2010 season begins today as your LumberKings continue the series in Wisconsin. The Kings beat up Rattlers’ right-hander Eric Arnett for seven runs last night, cruising to the 10-0 win. Matt Cerione homered for the fourth time and fell a triple shy of the cycle, while Blake Ochoa victimized his old team with a towering drive to left for his fourth home run as well.
Right-hander Erasmo Ramirez fired 6.2 scoreless innings to extend his scoreless streak to 14.2 and the bullpen kept the shutout in-tact.
I would love to have caught either Cerione or Ramirez prior to today’s 1:05 PM game, but a lot of other things have kept me busy. For one, the LumberKings’ roster has been changing. Ace lefty Jimmy Gillheeney and right-hander Ryan Moorer were both promoted to high-A High Desert yesterday, but the move had not been announced until today.
Furthermore, the Kings have received 26-year-old right-hander Tom Wilhelmsen, who is expected to start in the series finale in Wisconsin tomorrow night. Wilhelmsen’s story is an intriguing one, and I will get to that in another post/interview.
The moves haven’t stopped there. After tossing 5.2 scoreless innings in triple-A Tacoma’s 8-2 win over Reno last night, right-hander Yoervis Medina was sent down three levels and will join Clinton today. I doubt he’ll be available to pitch, but you never know.
Plenty of things to read about in today’s Game Notes:
Right-hander Taylor Lewis (3-1, 6.37) makes a spot start in place of injured righty Nolan Gallagher today, first pitch scheduled for 1:05 PM. Listen online at 1390kcln.com!
