Sam Leever was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete
game at Baker Bowl as the O’Roark Redlegs beat the KALONA PERVERTS by the
count of 10 to 1.
The KALONA fans didn’t appreciate the big day Ted Williams had. He lined a
one-base hit in the 1st inning, clubbed a three-run home run (his 61st of the
season) in the 2nd inning and laced a single which scored a run in the 8th
inning. O’Roark rapped out 15 hits for the afternoon.
Leever(25-6) allowed 1 run on the game. The loss was charged to Frank
Wickware(4-6). He allowed 7 hits and no walks in 1 and 2/3 innings.
History was made in June Part as Josh Johnson(10-7) tossed a no-hitter and the
June Part Two defeated the New York Rockefellers by the score of 5 to
Johnson had an afternoon to remember. Heck, it’s one we’ll all remember! What
a game at AT&T Park He had excellent control, walking only one. The
tension was mounting with every inning after the 6th. Johnson appeared
oblivious himself to the mounting history until two were out in the 9th.
Only then, did he allow himself one deep sigh and a slow trip around the
mound. Johnson mowed down 12 New York batters. June Part had a total of 14
hits for the game.
Brad Penny(1-4) took the loss. What a show!’ Summer fun said. ‘Johnson was
great out there — I’m happy that he go it.’

Designated hitter Roger Cedeno blasted 3 home runs and had 7 RBI and Dennis
Eckersley closed the door on Bettendorf as the Dombrowski’s Drunks 3 defeated
the Bettendorf Blasters by a score of 13 to 7 at Riverfront Stdm
Cedeno provided much of the offense. He bombed a two-run dinger in the 1st
inning, doubled bringing in a run in the 2nd inning, smashed a two-run homer
in the 4th inning and cleared the fences for a two-run home run (his 5th of
the season) in the 6th inning. The Dombrowski’s offense was great, scoring
in 7 of the 9 innings.
The winning pitcher was Bill Wegman(1-0) who allowed 7 runs in 7 and 1/3
innings. Eckersley earned the save, his 12th. The losing pitcher was Todd
Stottlemyre(1-3). He surrendered 8 hits and 1 walk in 1 and 1/3 innings.
‘The ball was jumping off my bat’ Cedeno said. ‘I didn’t do anything
differently, it’s the same way I always approach the game.’
Magglio Ordonez had 2 base hits at Busch Stadium as the Quebec Patriots
beat the Brooklyn Bats by the count of 2 to 1.
Quebec scored the decisive runs in a big 8th inning scoring 2 runs utilizing 2
base hits. Pedro Feliz led off the inning for Quebec when he drew a walk.
After an out was recorded, Hanley Ramirez stepped up to the plate and he
lined a one-base hit. Ordonez then delivered a base-hit bringing in a run.
Michael Barrett stepped in and he hit a deep fly scoring the final run of the
inning. The Brooklyn offense proved no trouble in the bottom of the 9th.
Ian Snell(10-8) went 7 and 1/3 innings allowing 1 run for the win. Snell got
help from Francisco Cordero who earned his 5th save. David Weathers(2-1)
absorbed the loss in relief.
‘I had a little blister on my index finger before the game, but I thought it
was nothing.’ Snell said. I was lucky I got a win because I couldn’t put the
ball where I wanted it.’
