7/3 Minor matters

Tuesday’s games

Donnie Murphy and Brad Nelson each homered to help Iowa beat Memphis, 6-2. Guillermo Moscoso gave up two runs over 6 1/3 innings for the win. Nelson’s homer was his 14th. Junior Lake chipped in with three hits, including a double and two triples, and also scored three runs. Ty Wright had two hits and two RBIs.

Christian Villanueva and Rafael Lopez each homered in Tennessee’s 4-3, 13-inning win over Montgomery. Yeiper Castillo picked up the win in relief.

Daytona had the day off, and returns to action Wednesday against Brevard County.

Tayler Scott gave up five runs over 6 1/3 innings in Kane County’s 5-3 loss to Wisconsin. Jeimer Candelario had one of the team’s five hits, a home run.

David Bote and Jacob Rogers each homered in Boise’s 10-5 win over Salem-Keizer.

Mesa won its fourth straight, beating the Brewers, 6-4. Kevin Brown had two hits and one RBIs.


Is it just me, or does it seem as if Daytona does not play often? If it is not a day off, it`s a rainout. Is no urgency to make up games. Why not just cancel rest of season, as Daytona games have no priority.

Former Cubs player Milton Bradley made news, and not in a positive way. If one looked up the term “troublemaker” in Websters, you`d find his photo next to the entry. Was sentenced in California yesterday for attacking his estranged wife five times in 2011 and 2012. Is a coward along with all his other character issues. Received 960 days in jail along with other punishment. Why we ever signed him is beyond me, as his flaws were well known at time. Is it any wonder why he played for eight teams in his 12 year career?

Hendry was a desperate AND ineffective GM. That’s why.

Do you all recall the time Bradley caught a fly ball in right field with runners on base and just one out? Milton`s head was not in the game, as he thought there were two outs, and he tossed the ball into the stands after catching it. Is the most boneheaded action I believe I`ve ever seen on a baseball field. I believe Piniella was the manager at the time.
