John Nalbone of The Times of Trenton is reporting that there were no major issues with Chase Wright’s MRI, and that the pitcher will be shut down for three or four starts.

In-Game Updates (LIVE from the ballpark): Rain delay at 8:25.  Fudge.

Game started at around 9:50.  The first batter, Campbell, hit a soft comebacker to Jones…who slipped while trying to field it.  Thankfully, he’s OK.

Travis Snider just laced a gapper to left, and it’s 1-0 in the first.

JJ walked home a run to make it 2-0 Fisher Cats in the third.

A-Jack doubles home two in the 3rd, 2-2.

Final Score: 4-2, Fisher Cats

Post-Game Notes: Jones is around 87 on the gun, saw Pinto at around 90.  I’m leaving at around 11:15 PM, so whatever happens afterwards, happens…

Thunder Thoughts: Anyone expecting quotes from the first game…don’t.  You’re not allowed in the clubhouse between games of a doubleheader, which is what this technically qualified as.

The unofficial Mike Ashmore f-bomb tracker is off the charts at the moment.  They haven’t started the second game yet, and it’s 9:30.  The issue there is that I have an 11:05 start in Somerset tomorrow, and then am coming back here.  Should be a lovely day. 

Congrats to Bill Bromberg on his 600th game as the team’s P.A. announcer.

    Mike,
    MLB site lists Alfredo Aceves at 5′ 10 and EL press release lists him at 6’3. Yanks PR was that he works off breaking pitchers and has great control. Then I read soneone says he’s throws 92 or so. What is the story with this guy???

  2. YanksFan Says:

    DId someone get sent down then to make room for Hacker?

    I specifically asked P.J. if Aceves throws cheese, and he told me was more of a command guy.

    Nobody’s been sent down yet to make room for Hacker, because he’s not officially been added to the roster yet. There are three catchers here, I’d imagine that’s where the move is…

    Aceves is a little taller than myself, and I’m around six foot…

  5. ebyank Says:

    The press release naming him as EL player of the week has him at 6′ 3″ and the MLB site has him at 5′ 10″. So, it figures he would be in between. lol
