The 66ers went on to lose 12 - 2. Maybe Logan White made the wrong call on moving Martin from a power hitting 3rd baseman to a shitty pitcher. Or maybe he would have sucked at both aspects of the game. What we do know, is that hitters are having no problem knocking the crap out of his 1st round stuff. I'm sure I'll be accused of exaggerating his ineptitude, so you decide. Since July 10th, he's pitched 27 innings, given up 33 runs on 43 hits, and 35 walks. Along with eight home runs. But you say it is the California League, you are expecting to much. And I reply so why was the opposing pitcher able to hold us to two runs if the league is the problem and not Martin? You reply, because our lineup is total crap. And I reply, yeah but.......
A – Webster took the mound and gave another mediocre performance going five innings, giving up seven hits and three runs. His control was good with nary a walk compared to four strike outs. Nick Gaudi fresh up from Ogden hurled three spotless innings but the Loons still fell 4 - 2.
Rookie Ogden – One day after hitting a three run walk off home run, 18 year old Jonathan Garcia upped the ante by slugging two solo home runs, leading the Raptors to a 14 - 4 victory. Coyle, Lemmerman, and Dean all had three hits, while Nick Akins slugged his 10th home run. Ozoria garned the victory but was not particularly effective giving up four runs in 5 2/3 innings.
Rookie Arizona – No box score?
