Live Game Blog – 4/19/09 – Scranton 7 – Rochester 2

Another great day for baseball

Posted on 19 April 2009 by Zod

It’s partly cloudy today, but they tell us that the rain will hold off until tonight, so we should get the game in. Today’s starter is Jason Johnson and he has his own personal interest story. Earlier this year he was diagnosed with choroidial malanoma in his right eye which is a very rare form of the disease. So his comeback story has an added emotional touch to all of us here in Scranton. Good luck today Jason!

A peek at the lineup on the way in has Juan Miranda at 1st today. Also absent from the lineup is Austin Jackson , as well as John Rodriguez, who was HBP yesterday.

Our SWB Lineup today: Doug Bernier 2B Eric Duncan LF Todd Linden CF Shelley Duncan RF Juan Miranda 1B Angel Berroa SS Justin Leone 3B Chris Stewart DH P.J. Pillittere C

Going for a franchise history 11th straight win!

Bottom 1st, Juan is back, 3-0 SWB

Doug Bernier leads off with a 2B, Eric Duncan singles, Shelly Dincan walks with one out & Juan Miranda hits a 2 run single. Good hustle by Eric sliding home. A sac fly got Shelly home and SWB leads 3-0.

Well, that didn’t last long

We got one back

Just turned neat 3-6-3 double play.

Jason Johnson through 4.

Posted on 19 April 2009 by Zod

Deuces wild. 2 runs, 2 hits, 2 strikeouts. He hit 88 with a FB and has good off speed stuff.

Melancon in, Johnson out…call in the dogs

Posted on 19 April 2009 by Zod

the hunt is over…in the 7th with 1 out and one on. Nice job today by Johnson. Oh, and with Melancon in, this game is on the books!

Just as I wrote that, double play.

Nice job Jason!

A 3 run shot in the 7th!

SWB 7-2.

Jason Pridie also made a great play in center to rob Miranda of at least a double.

Panic in the streets of Scranton!

Marc Melancon gave up 2 hits in the 8th. Very strange, maybe we should trade him?

It’s 11 straight for SWB!!!!!!

Brett Tomko pitched the 9th, SWB wins 7-2.
