The Nigh Of Walk Off’s

MLB Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers

The game got off to a quick start when Matt Kemp hit a home run in the 2nd 372 feet his 18th of the year. John McDonald would answer Kemp’s home run with one of his own hitting it slightly further for 390 feet in the 3rd inning to tie the game.

On the next pitch Eaton takes off running as Bell hits a single to right field scoring Eaton. Taylor Harbin would come up to bat with one on and 2 outs and hits a ball deep to center off the wall for a RBI double his (43rd) of the season.

MLB Diamondbacks vs LA Dodgers Game 1
The Arizona Diamondbacks have a new name as of yesterday after beating the Dodgers 4-3 in 11 innings, they will now be referred to as The “Dodger Killers”. The Dodgers have not beat the Dbacks in the last 8 games played between the two teams and have lost 5 of their last 6 games remaining 4 1/2 games behind the SF Giants. If the Dodgers who spent over $280 million dollars in the past 2 months adding Hanley Ramirez, Randy Choate, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Becket, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto don’t start winning games they will be watching the playoffs from their couch. The Dodgers are now just 2-5 since the block buster trade begging the question: should we have just stuck with what got us here? Luis Cruz continues to carry the team going 2 for 5 on the night the only Dodger with 2 hits. However between Shane Victorino, Adrian Gonzalez, Matt Kemp, Hanley Ramirez, and Andre Ethier they combine to go 1 for 20 this is not what Management expected from this star studded line up.

Jason Kubel home run in the 11th wins the game.

Jason Kubel on the night goes just 1 for 4 on the night but that 1 hit was the most important hit in the game. In the 11th inning he takes a pitch deep to right field for a home run to take the lead and win the game 4 to 3. Aaron Hill, Chris Johnson would both collect 2 hits as Miguel Montero goes 3 for 5 on the night for the Dbacks. Brad Bergesen would get the win for the Diamondbacks which would be his first win on the season. For the Dodgers Matt Guerrier gets the loss.
Preview: The Dodgers look to even the series by sending Josh Beckett to the mound for his second start as a Dodger.
The Diamondbacks will send the Young Composed rookie Tyler Skaggs to the mound who has pitched great in his 2 major league starts with a 2.92 ERA.

Rookie Tyler Skaggs Starting Pitcher

AAA 2012 PCL Champion Reno Aces vs Tucson Padres

The 2012 PCL Champions Reno Aces dominate the Tucson Padres in game 1 7-2 of the final home stand for the Aces. The Aces return home last night for the first game after being crowned the 2012 PCL Champions to a new look to Aces ballpark. A new sign painted into the grass of the infield reads 2012 champions. In the 2nd inning the Aces would score 3 runs on a walk and 2 doubles and a single.

Brent Clevlen

Brent Clevlen finally starting to feel comfortable in the Aces lineup tonight after being called back up from AA Mobile and goes 2 for 3 with 3 runs scored, and a home run with 1 RBI. Tyler Kuhn would end up 3 for 4 scoring 3 runs with 2 doubles and a RBI. But tonight it was about newcomer Wladimir Sutil who gets some playing time at SS and ends up 2 for 3 tonight with 4 RBI’s. Sutil with some clutch hitting with runners in scoring position is starting to come out of his shell. Young gunner Charles Brewer gets the win tonight going 7 innings and allowing 1 run on 4 hits. Andrew Cashner would get yanked after 4 innings giving up 3 runs on 4 hits and collect his first loss as a starter.

Preview: The 2012 Champion Reno Aces will continue the series tonight with LHP Zach Kroenke taking the mound to face LHP Josh Spence. Spence will have his hands full tonight as Adam Eaton returns from the 7 day DL from a concussion.

Eaton is the PCL Rookie of the year and the PCL MVP and is also leading all of baseball in batting average and should lock up a batting title this year. The Reno Aces will be without Konrad Schmidt and Tyler Graham as they were called up to the Dbacks as part of the September roster expansion. The Dbacks look to also call up Trevor Bauer, Adam Eaton and possibly A.J. Pollock but are reluctant to do so until the Aces complete their season so their team isn’t depleted completely.

AA Mobile Baybears vs Mississippi Braves

The Mobile Baybears would loose a close one to the Braves 4-3. Although the Mobile out hit the Braves 9-7 they left to many men on base (7) in a loss. Even Frey continues to tear it up at the plate for the Baybears and goes 3 for 4 scoring twice. Chris Owings would go 2 for 4 and Matt Mangini would collect 2 RBI’s on the night. Chase Anderson would get his 4th loss of the season as Brent Leach gets the win for the Braves.

A Visalia Rawhide vs Stockton Ports

Visalia would drop this game 6-2 as they just could not string very many hits together. Garrett Weber and Carter Bell had 2 hits a piece and Taylor Siemens gets his 7th loss dropping to 5-7 on the year.  The Rawhide would give up 2 home runs today as Sean Murphy gets the win for the ports and improves to 8-8.

MLB Diamondbacks VS Padres

The Diamondbacks and Padres both record 7 hits tonight but the difference tonight is 3 of the Padres hits were in the form of the long ball. For the Padres Yonder Alonso, Chase Headley, and Carlos Quentin all hit a home run and beet the Diamondbacks 9-3. For the Diamondbacks Justin Upton celebrated his 25th birthday with a RBI in the park home run and Aaron Hill would get a 4 bagger the easy way. Ian Kennedy would drop to 11-11 on the season as Clayton Richard improved to 11-12. tomorrow the Dbacks will throw Joe Saunders 6-10, 4.22 ERA and the Padres look to Edinson Volquez 8-9, 4.18 ERA. The Dbacks look to avoid a series sweep at home as the Padres look for their 7th win in a row.

AAA Reno Aces VS Fresno Grizzlies

Walk Off Fashion: In today’s game the Reno Aces would need 2 runs in the 8th inning and 1 in the 9th to send this game into extra innings. in the 9th inning the Aces Mike Jacobs would get a 2 out walk and would get a pinch runner (Wladimir Sutil). Cole Gillespie would hit a 2 out Double to left field that would travel all the way to the corner scoring Sutil from 1st.Taylor Harbin would get an infield single moving Gillespie to 3rd but the inning would stall there at a tie to send the game into the 10th. Jensen Lewis would pitch the 9th and 10th innings and would give up 1 run in the 9th and slam the door on the Grizzlies in the 10th to get the win. So now it would be up to the Aces to make a comeback in the 10th. The inning starts with a perfect bunt single by Tyler Kuhn, followed by a sac bunt from pinch hitting Brett Tomko to move Kuhn to 2nd. A.J. Pollock would be intentionally walked by the Grizzlies in what would be a fatal error. In walks second baseman Tyler Bortnick battles to a 2-1 count and with ice water flowing through his veins turns on a fast ball from Dan Runzler and hits a ball past a diving 3B Conor Gillaspie that would roll all the way to the corner for a WALK OFF RBI single. As Tyler Bortnick rounds 1st base he jumps in the air with a fist pump as the Aces dugout storms the field and celebrates at 2nd base with an ecstatic Bortnick. The Aces get the W coming back to win it in extra innings.

Konrad Schmidt would continue his outstanding hitting display going 2 for 5 with 2 RBI.

Taylor Harbin would finish 2 for 5 scoring twice with a double and a RBI.

Cole Gillespie would go 2 for 2 with 2 doubles, 1 run, and a RBI.

Aces will close the series tomorrow with LHP Zach Kroenke 6-4, 5.78 ERA against RHP Yusmeiro Petit 6-6, 3.48 ERA.

AA Mobile Baybears VS Tennessee Smokies

The double A Baybears take a page out of the AAA Reno Aces playbook and come back in the 9th to score 1 run and force the game into extra innings. Down by 1 run in the top of the 9th the man child known as Brent Clevlen would hit a solo home run(HIS 2ND OF THE GAME) over the center field wall to send this game into extra innings tied 3-3. With a RBI double from Matt Mangini Alfredo Marte would score to take the lead. Bo Shultz would strand the winning run in the 10th slamming the door on the home team to win the game. The 5 game series continues tomorrow.

Even Frey, Brent Clevelen, Matt Mangini all record multiple hits and continue to carry the team combining to go 9 for 13, 3R, 2 doubles, 2 home runs, & 3 RBI’s. #REDONKULOUS

A Visalia Rawhide VS Stockton
The Visalia Rawhide would get dominated 13-5 in a loss at home VS Stockton. Two of the 5 runs from Visalia would come from home runs from DH Jonathan Griffin and CF Keon Broxton. Griffin 1 for 4 would score once with2 RBI’s. Stockton would outhit Visalia 16-9.
