    Shew to the IR. He took a shot off of his arm on Sunday. I hope its not serious because he is having a
    great season.

    It’s nice to make it to the Chiefs games. Suite ticket was $20. Nice.

    Looks like both Torres and Nunez remain hitless in their 4th contest for the Chiefs. Torres did have a couple walks yesterday. Too much level for them? Hope to see them get their feet under them soon.

    Cordero looks good. Pitched around a beat the shift bunt. Low 90s fastball, nice movement on breaking ball and change up.

    This should be a big day for Nunez. Hope they don’t sit him a game. At his age, he should be chomping at the bit to play a quadheader if they had such. I’ll be real curious to see if Bobby Reed ended up taking the fair city of Peoria by storm today??? If you were a merchant there, how could you take the man’s money? I know if I owned a restaurant and Bobby whipped out his wallet to pay, the first words out of my mouth would be “Your money is no good here, Bobby.”

    Torres just struck out again. 14 plate appearances and 10 Ks. Sheesh.

    But looky there, Nunez with his first single and RBI.

    Nunez lined out one other at bat. I think he’ll do well here. Torres does look lost. Both have trouble with off speed stuff, but that is to be expected for rookies.

    Seijas strikes out 5 of first 6 hitters. Has 3/4s delivery, looks like a lot of movement, 92-93 on fastball and nice breaking ball.

    Well well well…..look who’s heating up. How does 3-6 with a couple rbi and a ringing double on the afternoon suit your fancy? Nunez is going to own this league in short order. Torres will be fine too. It’s just going to take him a bit longer to acclimate himself.

    To anyone who was able to watch Peoria, did Nunez get any hits off of breaking balls? I noticed in the game I watched Monday that he seemed to be adjusting to the breaking balls as the game went on and even fouled some off. To give you an idea of how quickly he is adjusting, in his first at bat Monday he came completely out of his stance trying to hit a curveball and struck out. But as the game went on, he was much better at staying in his stance and even managed to make contact a few times, instead of missing badly. He seems to be really quick with making adjustments after each at bat, showing good intelligence.

    Both Seijas and EGonzalez were excellent as it was the best starts for both of them this season. Seijas has been much more consistent with his starts in his second go around for PEO.

    EGonzalez(#48 TCN-Apr.) relieved at State College last season 20 games, ERA=4.99 WHIP=1.63 OBA=.313. Nothing special there. Whoever saw his potential as a starter deserves a gold star. He has been a step up from good…. ERA= 3.20 Whip=1.35 and his K/rate is up to 1.2/inn. And this is skipping Peoria.

    Seijas dominated the first 2 innings with 5 K’s. Not sure if he changed his approach with 6-0 lead, but he looked more hittable, or he pitching to contact which would impress.
    Cordero danced around a lot of trouble, but made key pitches when he had to.
    Nunez looked much better Wednesday after his first 3 games, but did chase some pitches down and away.
    Torres is adapting slower than Nunez, and hit a sac fly on a hard hit ball to left center.

    I was hoping to see more pitchers, but didn’t because of the inning eaters Cordero and Seijas. St Clair pitched the 7th inning and was not impressive, hitting about 90 on the gun.
