Midwest League Action: Games of July 17, 2009

Complete scoreboard

@Great Lakes 7, Wisconsin 5: “Wisconsin kept battling. It’s a good thing we had St. Clair to close the game,” Bustabad said.

@West Michigan 9, Peoria 0: "Home runs are accidents, and I just kind of ran into it tonight," said Guez, who went 3-for-5 with three RBIs and scored two runs for the Whitecaps, who improved to 13-8 in the Midwest League's second half and 56-35 overall. "He (Peoria starter Justin Bristow) gave me a good pitch to hit, a fastball middle in, and it was good to hit a home run and get out in front early.

Cedar Rapids 5, @Lansing 2 (13 innings): The Lugnuts put together two two-out rallies Friday night, in the 8th and 11th innings, but Lansing eventually fell to the Cedar Rapids Kernels, 5-2 in 13 innings at Oldsmobile Park.

@Fort Wayne 8, Clinton 3: “We are like one big family,” Schumacher said. “We have so much talent in the pen right now that it’s going to be tough if we have the lead in the sixth, seventh, eighth or ninth, for them to win.”

Quad Cities 15 @Dayton 5: It was bad in the first inning, and it got worse for the Dayton Dragons on Friday, July 17.

@South Bend 5, Kane County 2:
Two things will happen if former Notre Dame star A.J. Pollock keeps up this pace for the South Bend Silver Hawks.

One, he'll get plenty of practice in on his home run trot.

Two, he'll get plenty of practice packing his bags as he moves up the Arizona Diamondbacks' organization.
Beloit 9 @Burlington 3:
Jim Gabella has managed in the minor leagues for 12 years. His baseball career stretches back to 1976.

He has played in, and managed, thousands of baseball games.

So when Gabella called the Burlington Bees' three-game series against the Beloit Snappers the "worst three games I've had in my career," it is not a statement to be taken lightly.
