- LF Alonzo Harris was 4-for-4 with two doubles, two homers, three RBI and 5 runs scored from the #9 spot.
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 3-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI. After hitting safely in six straight, with multiple hits in five straight, he's up to .348/.417/.449 in 23 games in August.
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: after going 2-4 with a double, he's hitting .303/.404/.382 in 23 games in August.
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez pounded out his 17th homerun of the year. He's tied for 10th in the SAL in homers, while playing half his games in the most pitcher-friendly park in the SAL.
And perhaps the best note from the night: I thought Erik Goeddel looked great. He got into trouble in the first when an error and two walks loaded the bases, but he got out of it with a pair of strikeouts which started a run in which he retired 15 of the final 17 batters he faced. His final line: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 8 K. His fastball was in the low 90s, and he showed the potential for a plus curve and a plus slider. I don't want to get too hyped, but this was the first time since he returned from the DL in early August, when it seemed like he had a really good rhythm. Hold a spot in the St. Lucie rotation to begin 2012 for Goeddel.
I knocked a nearly full soda on my broadcast equipment during the first inning. The coca-cola won, and the equipment gave up and didn't turn on. That sucked. We ran the rest of the broadcast over the internet back to the station. While we were on air, I unscrewed the cover of the equipment and dried out the circuitry. Three hours later, it fired up and connected perfectly with the station. I was very relieved.
