July 28, 2008 Spokane 11 Everett 7

Not a lot to report – after the first 3 games of the series with Spokane were decided by 1 run ( Spokane winning 2 of 3) this game ended 11-7. Spokane showed some excellent hitting – plenty of doubles.

Joey Butler walked to the Spokane dugout prior to the game and I pointed out how he looked a lot like Harold Baines. Apparently he hits like Baines too (though not tonight – he was 0-5 with 2 strikeouts).

Nevarez pitched for the Spokane and hit 93 on the radar. Kasperek for Everett was around 88. Both of them had sub-3.00 ERAs, so I expected a low scoring game. It didn’t happen that way.
Dennis Raben (that's him with his bat wrapped around his helmet) hit his third home run for the Aquasox – we have been in attendance for 2 of them. This one was over the centerfield wall and a rocket line drive. Raben went 2 for 4 with a walk.

Phillips (from South Africa ) at shortstop looks like a good ballplayer. He had one tough error on a short hop that was going to be a tough out even if he handled the ball cleanly (which he didn’t). He was 0-3 at the plate with a walk

The Famous Chicken was in attendance.
