Miami Marlins vs Dbacks Game 1 of Double header



Game notes: I have had the pleasure to watch all of Tyler Skaggs starts in Reno and whiteness the greatness he possesses as a starter, and today all of Major League Baseball got to see the same. Tyler Skaggs had some quality pitches today. His curve ball was his go to pitch.                                                           Donovan Solano has reached base in nine straight appearances and in the 6th                                                                                                                                                                    Tyler Skaggs walks Donovan Solano and Jose Reyes back to back  & The bullpen is up and moving.                                                                                          Tyler Skaggs wins his first MLB start as a pitcher in the bigs. Jacob Turner’s first career start was a quality start: 6 IP 4 Hits, 5 Ks, no walks. He Retired final 10 he faced. Final line for Tyler Skaggs in his MLB debut: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 5 BB, 4 K. #StandingOvation Skaggs was interviewed after the game and when asked how it felt to pitch in his first MLB game he answered “It was phenomenal,”  when he was asked what it felt like to hear the crowd cheer and give him the standing O as he walked off the field he said. “I mean, the greatest feeling I’ve had so far in my life.” when asked if he was nervous on the mound during his first start he replied “It got pretty nerve-wracking,” Skaggs said, “but I feel like I did a pretty good job.” The Dbacks catch a break in the first game when umpire Jim Joyce blows a call at second base on a sliding Gerardo Parra, Donovan Solano applied the tag to Parra before he got to the bag but Jim Joyce called him Safe. Parra would then score on an Arron hill base hit.


AA Mobile Baybears VS Jackson Generals


The Mobile Baybears jump all over Stevenson Garrison in the first inning as he gives up 3 runs on 4 hits. Brett Tomko would give up a run on 2 hits in the 2nd inning. Mobile would answer and add 2 more runs in the 2nd on a double by Alfredo Marte and singles by Chris Owings & Matt Davidson. In the 3rd inning the hitting machine known as Brent Clevlen hits a triple to left field. He would then score on a sacrifice by Matt Mangini. In the 5th inning Francisco Martinez singles on a line drive and Brad Miller doubles on a fly ball to centerfield which would score Francisco Martinez. The Mobile BayBears would make it a 7-2 ball game in the fifth inning when Brent Clevelen walks and Ed Easley doubles on a line drive to centerfield. the Baybears would tack on another 2 runs on the Yahtzee ball from the beast Brent Clevlen. The Generals would score in the 8th on Chih Hsien Chiang’s (say that 5X fast) sac fly. The win goes to pitcher Brett Tomko  after he went 5 innings allowing 2 earned runs on 5 hits. Brent Clevlen ended the night 2 for 2 with 2 RBI’s and 2 walks. The Mobile Baybears improve to 1 game over .500 at 65-64.
