Righting the Ship

It’s almost half way through June and the Sky Sox are tied with Salt Lake for first in the Pacific North Divison. That’s good new for Sox fans, but the team has been going through a bit of a rough patch recently especially compared to the way the team has played for most of the season. Coming into tonight, the Sox have lost three of their last four and six of their last nine. So the team is looking to right the ship and get back on the winning course in the last four games of this series with Las Vegas before they head on the road for a very long 11-game, 12-day road trip.

Here’s the lineup that Stu Cole will be putting out there tonight to turn things around:

Eric Young Jr. – 2B

Mike McCoy – SS

Matt Miller – LF

Matt Murton – RF

Dan Ortmeier – 1B

Edwin Bellorin – C

Mark Bellhorn – DH

Christian Colonel – 3B

Chris Frey – CF

Alan Johnson – SP

Catcher Edwin Bellorin makes his return to the lineup tonight after being promoted up to the Rockies while Yorvit Torrealba was away on personal leave. With the Rockies, Bellorin hit .333 (2-for-8) with a run scored in two games.

Other news of the day involves reliever Franklin Nunez. Nunez, who’s been out of commission since May 15, threw a simulated game today at 3:20 PM and looked good. He’ll be evaluated today and his future schedule will determined after that.
