8/20 Minor League Wrap-Up

I wanted to get to bed by 10 so I can get good sleep, but so much for that.  I still knocked this out as quickly as I could.  It'll be brief.

Work today was tiring, really because I was out of bed all day for the first time in days and just that alone took a lot out of me, even if there wasn't much to do that first day.  I had to take a nap after I got home.

I actually do a feel a lot better. Funny story about last night:  I went to bed at 11 a bit nauseous and woke up suddenly before 4 am and laid there a bit.  I didn't feel too bad.

Suddenly, about a minute or so after I woke up, I hear this gentle pop from my abdomen, followed by the sound of liquid draining, coinciding perfectly with the bubbly feeling in my abdomen.


For a second, I'm worried, because the first and most obvious thought is that something just broke or burst. But then that vague nausea that plagued me all weekend disappeared, and suddenly, my stomach emptyed... I felt okay.

I laid there for a while just to make sure what happened... had actually happened. Something had been blocking the passage of digested food from my stomach to my intestines, which would have in turn explained all the nausea and sickness... and that blockage suddenly gave and everything in my stomach just drained into my intestines for processing.

For the first time since Thursday morning, I feel fine.  I was even able to eat a full meal today, with no problem.

Strange.  At the same time, the end result was about 3 hours sleep, which played a part in me being so tired.  Now I need to jet.

On to the wrap-up!

Go look at the boxes and logs... this was a chase, as the DIAMOND JAXX had the lead but the Lookouts kept nipping at their heels every time the DIAMOND JAXX tried to stretch it out.

And was Travis Chick channeling Matt Garza, or was Matt Garza channeling Travis Chick tonight?

AAA:  Sacremento 2, Tacoma 1, 10 innings
TAC:  60-70... SAC:  75-55

Robert Rohrbaugh:  7 IP, 4 H, (1 R) 0 ER, 2 K
Cesar Jimenez:  1 IP, K
Rick White:  2 IP, 1 H, 1 ER (HR), walk, 2 K
Prentice Redman:  1-4, RBI, K
Charlton Jimerson:  2-4, K
rest of Rainiers lineup:  2-27, R, 4 walks, 9 K

Figures that the leftrighthanded veteran who's been through the wars had to blow the game.  THANKS, RICK WHITE.  At least he had performed well up to that point.

The offense sure didn't help much, though.  Colby Lewis mowed them down over 7 innings, striking out 10, and the Rainiers never quite got over the hangover against the bullpen.
