That's right, the Rock Cats are back in action literally about 12 hours after a tough loss last night. Hopefully they can rebound today and start another winning streak. I'll post any noteworthy updates as they comes up.

Lucas French (2-0, .93 ERA), pitches a scoreless first. A lineout, flyout, walk to Roger Clemens' kid, but then French picks off Clemens.

French gets a called third, gives up a single to CF, gets a flyout and groundout to end the inning. 1 hit, 1 walk, 1 K for French through 2 innings.

Chris Colabello walk and Aaron Hicks single set up a Deibinson Romero HR to center! 3-0 New Britain. Romero's 3rd dinger.

French gets a ground out, gives up two walks (3), and a stolen base. Walks the next batter (4). All the sudden the bases are full because of walks.

And as for your comment on my blog, I would love to be able to answer the question about Oliveros' velocity, but the wife and I had to leave the game early to get to the grocery store before it closed. I plan to go on Sunday, so I'll let you know if he makes an appearance.

I think Pino's a righty, so Hicks should be batting lefty. The play-by-play I was viewing completly froze, so I'm left thinking the bases have been loaded for a half hour!

No Terry Felton is on the mound and Mike Hargrove is at the plate...1980's baseball reference for those lucky enough to see "Freeze" felton face off against the Human rain Delay.

OH it's Yohan Pino on the mound! Saw him pitch for the Snappers before the trade for Pavano. Back AA. Is he on rehab or taking the elevator down?

It's now 3-2 Rock Cats. The feed had stopped working. French gave up a 2 run homer. I think Pino might be on the way down -- I thought he started the season in AAA?

After a single and a stolen base, New Hampshire ties the game up on a Chris Herrmann throwing error. 3-3 in the top of the 4th.

Rock Cats win 7-3. Chris Colabello RBI double, and a Pedro Florimon 3R HR provided the additional scoring. That was Florimon's second HR, and Colabello's 5th double. Good win for the home team, coming off of last night's loss!
