Shutout, Mail Time, Houston Turnover

On Saturday night in front of a packed house at Parkview Field, Matt Wisler pitched five scoreless innings and the TinCaps  put up five runs in the first, shutting out Dayton, 5-0.

Today it’s a battle of two Midwest League newcomers on the mound: Erik Cabrera (3rd MWL start) for Fort Wayne, and Ismael Guillon (first MWL start) for Dayton.

In today’s TinCaps Report Podacast, hear from Manager Jose Valentin after Saturday’s win:

MAIL TIME

Here’s a question from @drkensf on Twitter:

In order, here are the Top-5 selling food items, per Culinary Director Scott Kammerer:

-Hot Dogs

-Dollar Dogs

-Dippin Dots

-Soft Pretzels

-Fries

and the top selling item at the Orchard, per Merchandise Manager Karen Schieber is the foam TinCaps hat.

Thanks for the question, Ken. If you’ve ever got a question you’d like answered, please shoot it my way. My contact information is at the bottom of this blog entry.

BRAD MILLS

The National League has both baseball’s best team, the Washington Nationals, and baseball’s worst team, the Houston Astros. After last night’s game, the Astros are on the hunt for a new manager.

“Brad Mills became the latest to go when the struggling Astros fired their manager and two members of his coaching staff Saturday night.

Mills was in his third season running the Astros, who have the worst record in the major leagues at 39-82.

The team announced the moves in an email almost two hours after Houston lost 12-4 to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The club also fired hitting coach Mike Barnett and first base coach Bobby Meacham. The Astros said first-year general manager Jeff Luhnow will name an interim manager and other staff members in a news conference Sunday morning.”

Dragons Manager Delino DeShields’ son, Delino Jr., is an Astros farmhand, who has made a good name for himself this year, that is after being born with a pretty good one to begin with. The younger DeShields is second in Minor League Baseball with 86 stolen bases, and was just recently promoted to Lancaster of the California League.
