Game two of the current series against visiting Reno is going to be a hot one! Current temp is a summer friendly 95 degrees, with triple digits looming after first pitch.
Doug Deeds is again at the top of the batting order, and after last nights solid 2-for-4 outing with a pair of doubles. Kole Calhoun was also 2-for-4 on the night, including an RBI doubl. Ed Lucas lifted one over the left-field fence to give Salt Lake 62 home runs on the season. The recent HR shortage at Spring Mobile Ballpark has been quite disappointing, but maybe the sabbath day can give the Bees the jolt they need to shake of the current slump.
Matt Shoemaker is 1-0, 6.97 versus the Aces, and with the second highest count for innings pitched in the PCL (91.0), Salt Lake is poised to pick up a win today and hopefully the series through Tuesday.
