Friday: Colorado Springs (Mark Redman, 2-2) at Sidewinders (Yusmeiro Petit, 2-2), 7 p.m., Tucson Electric Park

Thursday: Sacramento 5, Sidewinders 1

Pitching recap: A.J. Shappi had a tough time in his first Triple-A start. He was roughed up for seven base hits and five runs in 3 1/2 innings. He threw 73 pitches, 43 for strikes.

Brandon Medders was effective following Shappi to the mound. Medders allowed two hits and no runs in 2 1/3 innings.

Hitting recap: The Sidewinders were held to seven hits. Four of them came from the top of the batting order in Emilio Bonifacio and Tim Raines Jr., who had two hits apiece.

Notable: Jamie D’Antona was named the player of the month for the Pacific Coast League for the month of May. He batted .451 with seven home runs and 24 RBIs last month. He also hit safely in 23 of 26 games. He’s hitting .397 for the year. . . .

Robby Hammock, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, will be available Friday if needed.

Quotable: “We had to score some runs and we didn’t do that,” said Sidewinders manager Bill Plummer. “We had an opportunity to score with our three and four (hitters) and nobody out and couldn’t. That was probably the biggest game breaker. We split (the series) with them but unfortunately the last two nights we didn’t score any runs.”



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
