Salt Lake at Las Vegas — April 14
My record for the season remains intact.
I’ve been to one Quakes game, and the two Bees games here in Las Vegas.
They’ve lost all of them.
So I’m sure the good folk in Cedar Rapids and Little Rock are urging me to stay far away from their towns.
The Bees’ bats finally awoke last night, scoring four runs in the top of the 4th to tie the score at 3-3. They fell behind at 6-3, but tied it again in the top of the 7th 6-6. No problem for the locals, who scored two in the bottom of the 7th and one in the bottom of the 8th to win 9-6.
I have video of much of the Bees’ offense, and will try to post it on www.futureangels.com in the next day or two. (It’s not often you get to see a Brent Del Chiaro triple.)
As for Kendry Morales, per the Bees media folk Kendry was removed Friday night due to a stiff lower back. He missed Saturday night but could be available today.
Bartolo Colon is scheduled to make his rehab start here today at 12:00 PM PDT. The weather forecast for the afternoon is a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms with the temperature in the low 60s. Right now (9 AM) it’s mostly sunny outside.
I recorded several interviews yesterday which will be in the next FutureAngels.com Radio podcast. One was with Jim Gemma, the media guy for the Las Vegas 51s. Yeah, I know, they’re a Dodgers affiliate, but I think Angels fans should give some thought to driving up here when Salt Lake is in town and make a good showing of Halo Red. There are a lot of Dodgers fans in the stands. I’ve seen a few people wearing Angels gear. The Bees return for a four-game series July 12-15, so it would be nice to get a little Freeway Series rivalry going here in the town that never sleeps.
