A – Adamson, Atherton, Kandilas, Moanaroa


We did tell you that Cory Adamson’s (above) slow start was nothing to worry about, that he would soon start to make an impression at the plate. Well yesterday he went 1-4, scored a run and an RBI. Today he went even better going 2-4, including a double and scored twice, and so getting a hit in his last 4 games, too soon to call it a streak but heading in the right direction. So after 8 games he’s hitting .300.

Tim Atherton had his 2nd outing for Cedar Rapids today coming on in the 5th with the Rapids in the lead 7-0. Errors in the field behind him made it tough on Tim who finished his one inning giving up 4 hits and 4 runs, but none of them earned whilst Cedar Rapids held off Clinton to win 7-6.

David Kandilas was 0-3 yesterday but hit 1-3 today and scored Modesto’s only run in their 6-1 loss to Lancaster. He is currently hitting .317.

Boss Moanaroa has certainly gone off the boil this week. He went 0-4 both yesterday and today and has now gone hitless in his last 5 games lowering his average to .200.

SYDNEY – The Sydney Blue Sox (9-9) blew a five-run lead in the ninth inning before surrendering one run in the 10th as the Canberra Cavalry driven by Rolfe Renault (10-7) took the final game of the four-game series 7-6 on a rainy Sunday afternoon at Blacktown International Sportspark.

With the Blue Sox holding a 6-1 lead in the ninth inning, the Cavalry scored five runs on five hits and two walks to tie the game. Then in the tenth inning, Kody Hightower singled to left field, scoring Josh Matavesi and giving Canberra a 7-6 advantage and a 3-1 series win.

The Cavalry fought back after Sydney jumped out to a 5-0 lead. The Blue Sox scored in the first inning without recording a hit when Zac Shepherd walked with the bases loaded. Then in the third the Sox scored three unearned runs as Shepherd singled home two runs and Trent D’Antonio scored Boss Moanaroa on a sacrifice fly for a 4-0 lead. In the sixth, Chris Snelling doubled home David Kandilas to open up the five-run advantage.

Canberra got a run back in the seventh inning on an RBI-single from Ben Warner but the Blue Sox answered right back in the bottom half of the frame on a JD Williams single.

That set the stage for the visitors, who exploded for five runs in the ninth, highlighted on RBI-doubles from Jack Murphy and KC Hobson and an RBI-triple from Marcus Knecht.

Dustin Loggins (2-1) earned the win for Canberra, tossing a scoreless bottom of the ninth inning while Sean Toler picked up his seventh save of the season, shutting the door in the 10th after allowing a leadoff single. Todd Van Steensel (1-3) absorbed the loss, allowing the winning run to score in the 10th.

The loss spoiled a fantastic outing by Tim Atherton for Sydney, who threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing just four hits and striking out four. Dae-Sung Koo also tossed a scoreless inning out of the bullpen for the home side. 17-year-old Shepherd tallied two hits, a run scored and two RBIs while James Robbins and Williams also finished with two hits apiece for the Sox.

Sydney returns to action this Thursday as they hit the road to take on the two-time defending champion Alcohol. Think Again Perth Heat in a four-game series.

A 2-out RBI single in the bottom of the 13th inning off Tim Atherton ended a thrilling 9-8 Cedar Rapids victory over the Beloit Snappers on Sunday afternoon at Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Saupold tagged with loss; Atherton bounces back; George has productive day

Warwick -tagged with 2nd loss

Defensive errors behind him led to 2 runs being scored off Warwick Saupold today in Lakeland’s 3-1 loss to Dunedin. Warwick threw 6 good innings but minimal offensive support and the fielding errors conspired to tag him with his 2nd loss.

His line was 6INN, 7H, 2R, 0ER, 0BB, 5K. His record is now W2-2 with a 2.57ERA.

Tim Atherton bounced back from his loss on Wednesday with a scoreless inning today against the same team, the Peoria Chiefs. He allowed 1 hit and a walk whilst getting 1K. He is 2.31ERA for the season.

Ryan Searle back to Advanced A League

After 2 games in AAA, throwing 6.2 scoreless innings and collecting a win Ryan Searle was returned today to the Daytona Cubs in the Florida State League. He threw a scoreless 5th inning in a 4-2 loss to Clearwater.

At AAA he went 6.2INN, 4H, 0R, 2NB, 5K for a 0.00ERA.

Tim Atherton & Cameron Lamb pitch scoreless innings

Tim Atherton

Tim Atherton and Cameron Lamb threw 2.2 & 3 scoreless innings respectively in their last appearances.

Tim’s line was 2.2 INN, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 5K. He has a 1.83ERA over his last 10 outings.

Cameron, who is still listed as on rehab assignment, threw 3 innings for 1H, 0R, 1BB, 2 K and is now 2.92ERA.

Kable Hogben’s bad day; Atherton, Brooks, Wade

Looking to bounce back – Kable Hogben

In a harsh reminder that nothing can be taken for granted in sport Kable Hogben had arguably his worst outing for the year today when he came into the 8th with the score tied at 1 all. Based on his previous performances there was every reason to believe that he would hold the line for the Hawkes, after all he had gone for over a month without allowing a run to score.  Instead he was knocked around badly giving up 6 runs on 5 hits which included a triple and 2 doubles before being relieved with 2 out.

It’s a case of pick yourself up and dust yourself off – despite this Kable has a 2.95ERA and a 4-3 record – so we expect to see him bounce right back.

By contrast Logan Wade had another good day hitting 2-3 for the Twins in their 3-2 loss to the Rays. Logan is now on a 7 game hitting streak and is .294 in his last 10 games.

James Brooks also seems to how found his mojo hitting 2-5, including a double and 2RBI, for the GCL Nationals in a 10-4 win over the Cardinals. James is hitting .308 in his last 10 games.

Tim Atherton’s Beloit Snappers won a slugfest 13-10 over Wisconsin with Tim contributing 2.1 innings for 2 hits, including a home run, and a walk whilst striking out 3. His ERA is still an impressive 1.96 for the season.

Leading the charge is Kable Hogben who continues to blow them away in the A League having now 9 consecutive scoreless outings after yesterday’s effort of 2.1INN, 0H, 0R, 1BB, 5K. The last time he allowed a run was back on the 4th July. The hitters haven’t had anything to celebrate when he’s on the mound since then.

Tim Atherton is in the same League as Kable and has had 2 scoreless outings this week when in his latest performance he threw 2INN, 0H, 0R, 3BB, 2K for a 1.85ERA.

Ryan Searle has had 2 consecutive scoreless outings.  Yesterday – 2.1INN, 1H, 0R, 3K following his 2 scoreless innings last Sunday. In his last 3 outings he has allowed just 1 run in 8 innings for a 1-0 record. Quite an improvement.

Warwick Saupold got back to back wins when he completed 5 innings yesterday allowing 1R on 4 hits and 2 walks whilst striking out 4. Since his promotion to Advanced A he is W2-0 with a 3.24ERA.
