C’s Recap – Four-Run 1st Pulls Spokane Into A Tie For 1st With Canadians

Vancouver Canadians Dallas McPherson

Vancouver Canadians manager Dallas McPherson argues with home plate umpire Nick McFarland.


C's RecapThe Vancouver Canadians have company atop the Northwest League’s North Division. The Spokane Indians took the opener of their three-game series 4-1 at Nat Bailey Stadium Friday night. Both teams share identical 13-9 records.

Jose Espada needed 38 pitches to get out of the top of the first inning and only 20 were strikes. Starling Joseph led off with a double down the left field corner and Tanner Gardner got aboard on a walk. Espada would strike out Curtis Terry but Francisco Ventura lined a single to left on an 0-2 pitch to bring in Joseph with the game’s first run. The relay throw from shortstop Jesus Severino was in time but Christopher Bec dropped the ball when he tried to apply the tag on Joseph.

Espada’s next pitch was smoked off the right field wall by Kevin Mendoza banged a double to score Gardner and Ventura. The relay throw from second baseman Brandon Polizzi was in plenty of time to get Ventura but Bec would miss the tag. Mendoza would come in to count when Cristian Inoa flared a ball to center field on a broken bat.

Spokane Indians Yerry Rodriguez

Yerry Rodriguez won his second Northwest League start in as many tries for Spokane Friday.


Yerry Rodriguez shut Vancouver down over seven innings with just four hits and one walk allowed. His strikeout and groundball total were six apiece. Vancouver’s only run came in the eighth when Tanner Kirwer connected for his fourth home run of the season over Reggie Meyer. The save went to Sean Chandler as he recorded the final three outs.

Justin Watts, Will McAffer, Denis Diaz, Marcus Reyes and Orlando Pascual teamed up to provide eight shutout innings of relief for Vancouver.

Vancouver Canadians Justin Watts

Justin Watts kept Spokane in check with three shutout innings Friday.

Radar Gun Rundown

radar_gun_iconOne of Espada’s strikeouts was clocked at 90 miles per hour. He was in the low-to-mid 80’s range with his offerings.

Watts registered strikeouts at 90 and 87 MPH. He was as low as 71 and as high as 91 and 92. McAffer had the curveball working with two strikeouts at 75. Diaz had one strikeout at 90. Pascual had one whiff at 83.

C-Notes

C's NotesVancouver skipper Dallas McPherson was not happy with the men in blue. He argued the safe call at home plate that resulted in the third run of the game and kicked dirt on home plate. McPherson also disagreed with a call in the seventh when Polizzi was ruled out by running into the ball out of the batter’s box. Polizzi tried to drop down a bunt up  the first base side.

The Canadians got a lucky bounce on their first hit of the game. Bec hit a ball that caromed off the first base bag and he was able to beat it out to get on base.

Vancouver got the first two runners on in the second when Yorman Rodriguez lined one up  the middle and Jake Brodt walked. McGregory Contreras went down on three pitches before Severino crushed a ball but lined out to left. Polizzi worked the count full before striking out.

Bec ended the top of the third with a nice throw to Severino to nab Inoa trying to steal second. The bottom of the third saw Bec line a double over the head of Joseph in center field with two away but Griffin Conine flied out in front of the manual scoreboard.

The C’s encountered more bad luck in the seventh when Contreras drilled one right at the shortstop before Severino was plunked in the back by Rodriguez. The inning ended on the aforementioned Polizzi bunt.

Vancouver Canadians Tanner Kirwer

Tanner Kirwer homered in the eighth inning to give Vancouver its only run Friday.


Conine put an end to an 0-for-20 drought with a solid base hit to right field that came with two outs in the eighth. He saw his batting average drop 31 points to .245 during the skid.

Vancouver Canadians Jake Brodt

Jake Brodt extended his hitting streak Friday after a 12-day absence.


Brodt began the ninth by ripping one up the middle to start the ninth. That was Brodt’s first action in 12 days after being on the shelf with an injury.  The single extended Brodt’s hitting streak to a dozen games but he was forced out on a Contreras fielder’s choice. Severino hit into a game-ending 4-6-3 double play.

Vancouver Canadians McGregory Contreras

McGregory Contreras was forced out at second base in a game-ending double play Friday.


Vancouver had seven hits, one walk and one hit by pitch while striking out six times. There were no hits in four tries with runners in scoring position and seven runners were stranded. Bec had two hits while Brodt also reached twice with a knock and a walk.

Espada was rocked for four runs on four hits and two walks but had two strikeouts. That ended a string in which the Puerto Rican righthander had pitched at least five innings in his previous eight starts. Watts worked the next three frames and yielded just two hits while striking out three.  McAffer also rung up three batters while pitching a one-hitter over two innings. Denis Diaz allowed just one hit and struck out one in the eighth. Pascual worked around an error by Polizzi at second and struck out one in the ninth. The bullpen had an impressive 9-0 strikeout/walk total over eight frames.

The second game of this series is set for 7:05 pm Saturday. Lefthander Randy Pondler (3-4, 3.38) gets the ball for Vancouver against Spokane righthander Scott Engler (2-5, 6.41). Rob Fai will have the play-by-play on CanadiansBaseball.com and TSN 1040. The Canadians have announced there will be no fireworks at this game to give firefighters one less thing to worry about given the high number of forest fires in the province.

C’s Recap – Tucupita Helps Tri-City Take Two Of Three From Canadians

Vancouver Canadians Fitz Stadler

Fitz Stadler turned in two shutout innings of relief for Vancouver Thursday afternoon.

C's Recap


It was a day to forget for the Vancouver Canadians as they lost 6-0 to the Tri-City Dust Devils in the rubber match of their three-game set at Nat Bailey Stadium Thursday afternoon. The C’s lead in the North Division was also chopped down to a single game in the North Division as Spokane prevailed off Everett Thursday night.

A two-out first inning home run Tucupita Marcano off C’s lefty Nick Allgeyer stood up as the game winner. The Dust Devils second baseman also scored the second run of the game in the fourth inning. He led off with a single against Juan Nunez, stole second with two outs and scored on throwing errors by catcher Yorman Rodriguez and center fielder Tanner Kirwer on the same play. Marcano was also involved in a two-run rally in the sixth as he scored on a two-out single to center by Justin Paulsen off Nunez.

tucupita_marcano_run_scored

Tucupita Marcano reached the pentagon three times for Tri-City Thursday.


The Dust Devils strung together another two-run rally against Nunez in the seventh as Grant Little lined a two-out double to left to score base hits from Chandler Seagle and Xavier Edwards.

Omar Cruz completed the first four innings for Tri-City and scattered a hit and four walks while striking out five. Spencer Kulman was the winning pitcher as he worked around two hits and two walks and punched out one over two innings. Nick Kuzia got the three-inning save with just one hit allowed and three strikeouts.

Fitz Stadler finished up the last two innings for Vancouver and kept the Dust Devils off the board.

Vancouver Canadians Otto Lopez

Otto Lopez was one of three Canadians to reach base twice Thursday afternoon.


C-Notes

C's NotesThe first indication it wasn’t Vancouver’s day came in the bottom of the first inning. Kirwer and Christopher Bec drew a pair of one-out walks with Kirwer advancing to second on a Cruz balk before stealing third. Rodriguez got the green light on a 3-0 pitch but he lifted a pop fly in foul territory down the first base side. Paulsen tracked down the pop-up in shallow right and threw out Kirwer at the plate to end the inning.

It was a tough day for Rodriguez all around as he rapped into another double play in the fourth inning to wipe out a Bec leadoff walk. McGregory Contreras followed with a infield single to short but Jesus Severino lined out to first to cut that rally short.

Vancouver knocked on the door again when Sterling Guzman started the fifth with a single followed by a couple of two-out walks from Otto Lopez and Kirwer but Bec grounded out to third.

Rodriguez got a base hit to begin the sixth but Severino would hit into an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play. Things did not get any better for Rodriguez as he hit into his third twin-killing to end the eighth after pinch-hitter Brett Wright was hit by a pitch. Wright—took over for Bec as the designated hitter—has taken one for the team three times over the last two days.

Lopez had a two-out walk in the third and Brandon Polizzi picked up a two-out single in the seventh but they were left stranded. Vancouver went down in order in the second and ninth.

Lopez, Kirwer and Bec had two walks apiece for the top of the order but Vancouver had just four hits and struck out nine times. The C’s came up empty in three opportunities with runners in scoring position and left seven men on.

Allgeyer gave up just the solo home run over two innings but that was enough for him to get tagged with the loss. The former Iowa Hawkeye did strike out one with no walks. Nunez was knocked around for five runs (four earned) on eight hits and a walk with three strikeouts over five innings. Stadler struck out four of two scoreless frames of one-hit ball while punching out four.

The Spokane Indians are up next for the Vancouver Canadians in a first-place showdown for the second-half North Division title. The three-game series begins Friday night at the Nat. The pregame show on TSN 1040 is at 6:00 p.m and Rob Fai will call the action beginning at 7:05 pm.

C’s Recap – Back-To-Back Jacks From Lopez & Kirwer Lift Canadians Over Dust Devils

Vancouver Canadians Otto Lopez

Otto Lopez hit a tie-breaking home run in the fifth inning for Vancouver Tuesday.


C's RecapThe Vancouver Canadians got back on track as they dumped the Tri-City Dust Devils 5-2 at Nat Bailey Stadium Wednesday night. The C’s got more good news on the out-of-town scoreboard as Everett knocked off Spokane. That gives Vancouver a two-game lead over the AquaSox and Indians for first place in the North Division.

Tri-City Dust Devils play-by-play announcer Chris King says he has heard a lot of How To Get Away With Murder jokes when Sam Keating has been on the mound this season. Well, this story will add a few more logs to that fire. For those not familiar with the ABC TV series, Sam Keating was a character played by actor Tom Verica in season one.

On the diamond, Keating is a 19 year-old righthander who was a fourth round pick of the San Diego Padres in the 2017 draft. He was able to get away from a couple of sticky situations in the first two innings. Tanner Kirwer reached on a fielder’s choice and Yorman Rodriguez singled with one out. Despite a double steal, Keating struck out Griffin Conine and Christopher Bec to escape that jam. The second inning saw McGregory Contreras double with one out and he tried to score on a Nick Podkul single to center but he was thrown out at the plate. Keating plunked Brett Wright with a pitch before striking out Otto Lopez to strand two more runners.

Vancouver Canadians Joey Murray

Joey Murray pumps his first after completing two scoreless innings against Tri-City Wednesday.


Joey Murray had a couple of obstacles to deal with in his two-inning stint. He sandwiched a Grant Little single and stolen base by striking out Xavier Edwards and Dwanya Williams-Sutton to end the first. The second inning saw Murray strike out the side swinging by whiffing Blake Hunt, Luis Ascunsion and Luke Becker to strand Justin Paulsen at second after a walk and a wild pitch.

Vancouver Canadians Sean Wymer

Sean Wymer won his fourth game of the year after pitching three innings Wednesday.


Tri-City would break the scoreless tie in the third against Sean Wymer. Edwards reached on a fielder’s choice and swiped second and Little walked before Tucupita Marcano smashed a ground ball that Rodriguez could not handle at first. Marcano was credited with a base hit that resulted in Edwards coming in to score and Little and Marcano both advancing into scoring position on the throw to the plate. A Williams-Sutton sacrifice fly to right brought in Little with the Dust Devils second run.

Vancouver Canadians Jesus Severino

Jesus Severino celebrates a run-scoring double that produced Vancouver’s first run Wednesday.


Keating retired the side in order in the third but he would not get away clean in the fourth. Bec began the frame with a base hit, stole second and scored on a Jesus Severino double to get Vancouver on the board. Contreras then blooped a single just out of the reach of Paulsen at first to score Severino with the tying run.

Vancouver Canadians Tanner Kirwer

Tanner Kirwer connected for his third home run of the season Wednesday.


Keating was then burned by back-to-back home runs by Lopez and Kirwer as Lopez dropped one into the C’s bullpen in left field before Kirwer found the seats in the home run porch in left to give Vancouver a 4-2 advantage.

Vancouver would add one more tally in the sixth when Contreras singled, swiped second and came in to score when Lopez greeted Dust Devils reliever Gabe Mosser with a single to left.

Vancouver Canadians Troy Miller

Troy Miller kept Tri-City off the board in the sixth and seventh innings Wednesday.


The bullpens shut things down the rest of the way with Wen-Hua Sung tossing a scoreless eighth. Troy Miller worked two shutout frames while Joey Pulido and Cobi Johnson contributed their own goose eggs to finish off the victory for Vancouver.

Vancouver Canadians Joey Pulido

Joey Pulido worked a 1-2-3 eighth inning for Vancouver Wednesday night.


Radar Gun Rundown

radar_gun_iconMurray was around 71 to 89 miles per hour during his two-inning stint.

Wymer had pitches as low as 77 and as high as 93. He did hit 95 on his final pitcher. Miller and Johnson were both at 92 while Pulido had offerings at 85, 92 and 95.

C-Notes

C's NotesPodkul helped Wymer out with two big defensive plays at second in the fifth inning. Edwards got aboard on a leadoff bunt single and took off from first with Little at the plate. Podkul was on his way to cover the bag before ranging over to his left just in time to catch Little’s liner to send Edwards back to first. Edwards would steal second and get to third after a Wright throwing error behind the dish. Kirwer unleashed a strong throw from right field to nearly get Edwards at third. However, Podkul would get Edwards at home as he handled a ground ball from Marcano and threw it to Wright who applied the tag at the plate.

Podkul also started a slick 4-6-3 double play of the bat of Luke Becker to help Miller escape a first-and-second jam in the sixth when Blake Hunt walked and Luis Ascunsion beat out a single at third despite a valiant effort from Lopez.

Lopez also had a defensive gem to help out Miller in the seventh. Little walked and Marcano laid down a bunt single as part of a two-out uprising before Lopez made a diving stop to his left on a Williams-Sutton ground ball and threw it over to second to force Little for the third out.

Vancouver had 13 hits, a walk and two hit by pitches and only struck out five times. They had four hits in nine tries with runners at second and/or third with eight men left on base.

Vancouver Canadians McGregory Contreras

McGregory Contreras increased his batting average by 18 points to .274 with a four-hit effort Wednesday.


Contreras had a perfect day at the dish by going 4-for-4 with a double, a run batted in and a stolen base. Lopez had a hit and a walk to go with his third homer of the year while Wright doubled and took two for the team. Bec had the other multi-hit game by going 2-for-4 with a stolen base. Also stealing bases were Rodriguez and Kirwer. That swipe by Kirwer leaves him one back of Eugene’s Fernando Kelli and his 27 steals. Eight C’s recorded hits in this one with only Conine shut out in that department.

Murray struck out five over two innings to help work around a hit and a walk over the first two frames. Wymer was charged with two runs with four hits and a walk and struck out one to improve to 4-2 on the year. Miller scattered two hits and two walks and struck out one in his two innings of work. Pulido struck out one in a perfect eighth while Johnson worked around a hit and a walk with one punchout in the ninth for his ninth save in as many opportunities.

Orlando Pascual has rejoined the Canadians after being sent down from Lansing. The 2017 Northwest League All-Star righthanded reliever began the year with the C’s before getting called up to Lansing July 2. Pascual was 0-2 with a 4.57 earned run average with the Lugnuts. The 22 year-old Dominican struck out 21 batters in 21-2/3 innings but walked 16 and plunked two more. Pascual is now wearing #21 after wearing #18 to begin the year with Vancouver. This is his third different number over two seasons with the C’s after wearing #8 to begin 2017.

Catcher/outfielder Reilly Johnson also has a new uniform number upon his return from Lansing. The 21 year-old wore #26 to begin the year with Vancouver before he was called up to Lansing in late June. Johnson is now wearing #36.

Yorman Rodriguez has also switched uniform numbers. He was wearing #34 but has now taken #13 which was worn by shortstop Vinny Capra until his recent promotion to Lansing. Rodriguez has worn three different numbers during his time with the C’s after wearing #35 last year.

The series finale between the C’s and T-C goes Thursday afternoon at Nat Bailey Stadium. The game can be heard on CanadiansBaseball.com and BNN Bloomberg Radio 1410. Pre-game show is at 12:00 and Rob Fai will call the action beginning with a 1:05 pm first pitch. Lefthander Nick Allgeyer (0-0, 2.61) gets the start for Vancouver against Tri-City lefty Omar Cruz (1-0, 0.52).

C’s Recap – Silva Scintillating But Dust Devils Down Canadians In Series Opener

Vancouver Canadians Elio Silva

Elio Silva tossed six innings of one-run ball against Tri-City Tuesday night.


C's RecapThe Vancouver Canadians started their six-game homestand with a clunker as they fell to the Tri-City Dust Devils 4-1 at Nat Bailey Stadium Tuesday night. Vancouver’s lead in the North Division is down to one game as Spokane spanked Everett Tuesday.

Vancouver scored the first run of the game when Otto Lopez tripled to center field off Henry Henry with one away. A Tanner Kirwer sacrifice fly brought Lopez home.

Tri-City would tie it in the top of the fourth when Dwayna Williams-Sutton slammed a two-out solo shot to left-center field off Elio Silva.

The Dust Devils would break the tie in the eighth with a one-out rally against Denis Diaz. Kelvin Alarcon got aboard on a walk, stole second base and reached third on a Tre Carter single to first. Xavier Edwards also walked to load the bases. Diaz struck out Grant Little for the second out before giving the ball to Connor Law. Tucapita Marcano hit a sharp ground ball but it was booted by Nick Podkul for a two-base error and that wound up clearing the bases.

Jonathan Guzman worked two shutout innings for the win. Jordan Guerrero closed it out in the ninth.

Radar Gun Rundown

radar_gun_iconSilva was in the 79-92 range.

Diaz had a strikeout at 90.

Law had one strikeout at 95 and hit 98 at one point.

Vancouver Canadians Brandon Polizzi

Brandon Polizzi had a hit and made two good plays with the glove Tuesday.

C-Notes

C's NotesPolizzi had a fielding error at second just two batters into the game but he redeemed himself with two defensive gems. He made a diving stop to rob Edwards of a hit to end the third inning before running a long way near the right field line to retire Williams-Sutton on a pop-up in the seventh.

Sterling Guzman helped out Silva in the third by coming off the bag at first after an off-target throw by Podkul from third base to get Carter. Guzman also made a diving stop in the eighth inning on a ground ball by Carter and tossed it to Diaz covering the bag from the seat of his pants but Carter beat it out. C’s manager Dallas McPherson came out to argue the close play at first.

Law tried to bail out Diaz but Marcano hit a sharp grounder that was booted by Podkul. Some aggressive baserunning by Marcano and Edwards produced the third run of the frame. The C”s were unable to get Marcano heading to second and Edwards took off for home and made it easily.

Silva gave up just a solo home run and a walk over six innings. He struck out four and racked up 10 outs on the ground. Diaz pitched 1-2/3 innings and gave up three unearned runs on three hits and two walks with one strikeout. Diaz—not the quickest worker on the mound—was bailed out in the seventh when Yorman Rodriguez threw out Hunt trying to steal third to end that threat. Law had three strikeouts in 1-1/3 innings but all three inherited runners scored on his watch.

Vancouver Canadians Otto Lopez

Otto Lopez had two hits for Vancouver in a losing cause Tuesday.


After a Lopez leadoff single was wasted in the first, Christopher Bec started the second with a infield hit to third and made it to second on a Henry wild pitch. Bec tried to get to third on a McGregory Contreras ground ball to short but he was thrown out by Marcano. Contreras would steal second but Guzman and Podkul went down swinging to kill that rally.

The C’s had another chance to break the tie in the fifth when Podkul and Polizzi had back-to-back one-out singles to put them at first and third. Lopez had a comebacker to Henry on the mound and he threw out Podkul at the plate.

Vancouver tried to rally again in the ninth when Bec walked with one out against Guerrero and Contreras lined a single to center off Edwards at second to put runners on the corners. Guerrero would dial it up to 101 miles per hour as he dispatched Guzman and Podkul on strikeouts to end the game.

Lopez had a two-hit game for Vancover and Bec reached twice with a knock and a walk. The C’s was 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and stranded seven men on base. They struck out 10 times and drew just two walks.

The C’s and Double-D’s go it again Wednesday night at 7:05 pm. Rob Fai will have the call on TSN 1040 and CanadiansBaseball.com. The pregame show starts at 6:00 pm.

C’s Recap – Canadians Take Third Extra Innings Affair In Salem-Keizer

josh_winckowski_rears_back

Josh Winckowski pitched 6-1/3 shutout innings in Salem-Keizer Monday.


C's RecapThe Vancouver Canadians prevailed for the third time in extra innings with a 3-1 triumph in 10 innings over the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes at Volcanoes Stadium Monday night. The victory was the fourth straight for the C’s as they completed their road trip with a 7-3 record. The Canadians remain two games up on Spokane for the North Division lead in the second but are now three ahead of Everett after an extra-innings loss to Eugene. Spokane also won in 10 innings against Boise.

Not a single run was scored in regulation as the Salem-Keizer trio of Jake Wong, Alex DuBord and Trent Topilkar matched zeros with the Vancouver threesome of Josh Winckowksi, Justin Watts and Will McAffer.

The 10th inning began with Griffin Conine at second base and he would come in to score on a throwing error by Nico Giarratano on a ground ball by Jesus Severino. A Sterling Guzman tapper back to the mound pushed Severino to second. Christopher Bec got Severino over to third with an infield single to third. McGregory Contreras then singled to left to bring in Severino with the second Vancouver run. Matt Frisbee relieved Topilkar and got Reilly Johnson to pop up to second for the second out. Bec would score when the ball got away from Volcanoes catcher Joey Bart. Contreras got caught in a rundown between first and second to end the rally.

Salem-Keizer would have Giarratano on second base to begin the home half of the 10th. The Volcanoes would load the bases against McAffer with a Jett Manning walk and a Christopher Burks base hit. A sacrifice fly to right by Aaron Bond scored Giarratano but Bond slammed his helmet down to the ground in frustration as Conine timed his leap to make the catch. Diego Rincones lined one right at Severino at short for the second out but McAffer plunked Bart with a pitch to load up the bases again. McAffer finally ended it by getting Wander Franco fly out to center field.

Vancouver Canadians Justin Watts

Justin Watts stranded two runners, struck out three and tossed 2-1/3 scoreless innings for Vancouver Monday.


C-Notes

C's NotesWinckowski used a couple of double play balls to erase base hits in the first two innings. Rincones hit into a 4-3 twin-killing to wipe out a Bond leadoff walk in the first. A 4-6-3 deuce by Medrano in the second flushed a rally that began with base hits by Franco and Dalton Combs.

Winckowski also had to survive a one-out single by Burks and his own throwing error on a pickoff attempt in the fourth. The righthander did that by starting a stretch that saw him sit down eight hitters in a row before Burks began the sixth with a double. Winckowski would strand Burks by retiring the next three hitters in a row, two by strikeout as Bond and Bart went down swinging to bracket a Rincones popout to second.

Vancouver Canadians Will McAffer

 

Will McAffer earned his fifth victory of the season for Vancouver Monday.


The Volcanoes would put the pressure on Winckowski again in the seventh when Franco began the seventh with a single and Medrano walked with one out. Watts entered the game and dispatched Giarratano on a strikeout before getting Manning to ground out to third. Watts retired the first five men he faced before walking Franco with one out in the ninth. After Combs flied out, McAffer replaced Watts and walked Medrano before inducing a fly out by Giarratano to extend the game into the 10th.

Vancouver Canadians Christopher Bec

Christopher Bec had a double and a single in Salem-Keizer Monday.


A Nick Podkul single in the first was all Vancouver got in the first five innings and Podkul was forced out on a Conine double play. A Brandon Polizzi base hit with two outs in the sixth represented the first time Vancouver sent more than three men to the plate. Polizzi came into the game as a defensive replacement in center field for Hunter Steinmetz in the bottom of the fifth. Severino had a two-out single in the seventh but the C’s best chance to score came in the eighth when Bec began the frame with a double. Conine and Johnson would strike out before Polizzi flied out to strand Bec.

Vancouver and Salem-Keizer had six hits apiece. There were 21 strikeouts in the game with the C’s going down swinging nine times without drawing a walk. They were 2-for-8 with three runners left on.

The Vancouver Canadians begin a six-game homestand against a pair of North Division rivals at Nat Bailey Stadium. The Tri-City Dust Devils are in town for a three-game series beginning Tuesday night. Rob Fai will have the call on TSN 1040 and CanadiansBaseball.com with the pre-game show at 6:00 pm. First pitch is at 7:05 pm.
