|Carson Schneider with a strong relief outing|
After Carson, Tim Peabody, Preston Ryan, and Ryan Keller gave up 2, 4, and 2 runs respectively in the loss. Ryan actually pitched a solid 2 innings in relief before his wheels came off. He was charged with the loss and 3 of his runs Keller couldn't keep from scoring.
Not much excitement otherwise for Cats fans. Hunter Mercado-Hood had a great night, going 4-6 to raise his non-AllStar average to .344, and keep himself leading in RBI with 35.
It was nice to see Harvey back on the field looking no worse for wear, yet from my standpoint, not moving as limber as usual. At least he's got a week to fully mend his "upper body injury".
In all, a good series for Victoria. Lots of run support, some solid starting and relief pitching, and the return - if only for a few at-bats - of some players who will be needed down the stretch.
Monday is the All-Star game in Klamath Falls - good luck to all four of our participants. It's a short break, the Cats are back in action against Cowlitz on Tuesday night at Story Field.
